How Original is the inaugural promo from Stussy’s skate team by Jared Sherbert. Includes parts from …everyone whose name you see in the image above. Having grown accustomed to seeing footage of these dudes in really specific settings, e.g. Diego in the agro Hockey-edit style, Aaron as a reserved fan-favorite in both of the 917 full-lengths, Cyrus in Johnny’s edits — it’s fresh to see them come together in something that feels wholly different than any video they had been in before, even just for twelve minutes. (And bookending together a 2020 Lance Mountain part, at that.)
The best interview series going:Josh Kalis x Bobshirt goes on for nearly an hour and there’s never a dull moment. Shout out to doing varial heels out of spite.
“And you’ll get stabbed if you break the hunger strike?” “Oh yeah.” Getting locked up was a big topic on the skate interview circuit this past week. The Bunt’s latest is with Brandon Turner. Still waiting on that Muska and/or Shorty’s Epicly Later’d.
A few minutes of throwaway footage from the Bluecouch crew, and a reminder of the enduring legacy held by that “bank” to “ledge” on 16th Street as the worst spot in New York that people still continue to skate. Someone said they got a ticket there one time and that’s the most “lol at your life” story ever ;) Forget who it was though.
Do not recall the last time there was footage of it, but Paine Webber is fenced off for construction. Can’t tell if they’re getting rid of the benches just yet. Would be pretty tragic if they do, considering it’s probably the last remaining iconic midtown spot to not undergo any major renovation or knobbing.
