After celebrating our seventh anniversary this past Wednesday, we present you with an unprecedented development in Quartersnacks’ history — a five-minute clip entirely set in Los Angeles, California. We don’t plan on launching an indoor T.F. that causes us to become afraid of the sun, joining any cults, or living off a diet of alfalfa sprouts and plates of mashed yeast anytime soon, but who knows. Below is the entire #stupidbitch2012 tour in video form. Here’s the photo post in case you missed it. Thanks to Joe Cups and Josh Velez for for their filming contributions.
Features Mike Gigliotti with his last appearance in a QS clip as a civilian, Aiden, Lui Elliot, a lot of dancing idiots, Charles Lamb, Tino Razo, some shitty cab drivers, Josh Velez, Baker landings, Javier Nunez, Andrew Brophy, and some more bad cab drivers. (L.A. has an epidemic of insanely awful cab drivers — we were staying on California Avenue and one of the cab drivers asked how to spell “California” while he was typing it into his GPS.) Have a good weekend.
The QS Stupid Bitch 2012 Tour has concluded. Contrary to Cosmo Kramer’s belief that nobody leaves Los Angeles, we made it back. Thanks to Joe Cups, Lil’ Lui, Gigliotti the Great A.K.A. Gigliotti the Wrangler Jeans Catalog model, Scuba Steve and everyone at Nike, and everyone else for chauffeuring us around all week and letting us crash. If you want to blow your six-month New York City cab budget in one week, go to Los Angeles.
Remember how before Tumblr and Instagram (when The Green Diamond got updated all the time), everybody had a crummy little Blogspot page where they would post columns of photos relevant to maybe ten people that they know? Well, this post is a homage to that. The QS trip in Blogspot circa 2007 form. Video from the trip up soon. Now it’s time to figure out how to stop saying “yolo,” “hella” and “fool.”
In L.A. for the week eating tacos, sitting in cars, and looking for a “YOLO” shirt to film a “TEAM YOLO” clip to “The Motto.” Fun fact about L.A: There is no such thing as a place where you simply go “to skate flat.” It’s shit. Be back next week. If you need something that’s hella chill east coast yolo vibez, The Chrome Ball has an all-Flushing photo post.
If you’re into skate events and stuff, NY Skateboarding has a breakdown of things going on this weekend. There’s a premiere for Galen’s favorite skate company’s new video tonight, Black Dave opens up for Juicy J tomorrow (he’ll be opening up for Drake by September on his one year of rapping anniversary), and there’s a Converse best trick contest at the Chelsea park on Friday.
And since this is temporarily a California-based New York site, please remember that the 1998 Neighborhood video, LaLa Land is on the internet. Notable because the soundtrack is 95% No Limit-based, Cops concepts, and Daniel Lebron’s part showcases every single skate shoe from the late-90s in less than three minutes (not to mention a picnic table line in Air Force Ones.)
