Some angel uploaded the Stick Up Kids NY premiere clip from 2006. For those who may not know, Stickupkidsny.com was the home of Flipmode, which would later become Bronze in the early 2010s. The clip is way ahead of its time :)
Mick Robbins has a new mini video entitled “Girls Are Hot” (girls are hot) that is mostly filmed in New York. Features a new silent Jason Byoun part. He’s maybe the the first one to ever film a line with a backpack on his chest.
Pretty sure there will be a ton of kids trying no comply hurricane grinds on the fat flat rail at L.E.S. this fall. Also, we need to get more crates at Tompkins.

Nostalgia: Luy Pa Sin B-sides from the Lordz TDGAFAU era, and round 2 of Jim Hodgson’s In Absenita C-roll. The Stevie frontside heel is really cool :)
Everyone gets all bleary eyed when they talk about Modus or In Bloom, but some of those old TWS videos kinda just fell in the pile in the internet era. Village Psychic looked back at reasons worth revisiting some of them. Gotta give some special bonus nods to Pete Eldridge’s Hallelujah part, Smolik’s Let’s Do This part, and Bobby Worrest’s Right Foot Forward part.

Avoiding the same questions for every interview with a skater is tough. Skateboard Story has a rad one with Mackenzie Eisenhour, one of the best interviewers in all of skate media. “The only way to adapt if you want to work in it for me is just to keep skating. That’s the only constant. The act itself doesn’t really change. If I stopped skating myself, I would really have a hard time pretending to care about any of it. I honestly have no idea how people who have quit skating still work in the industry.”

Jenkem runs down the best fakie ollies of all time, an inherently awkward looking trick if there ever was one.
A few New York clips in these Brad Cromer B-sides from Outliers.
So that’s where the “Grindin'” beat came from…
