“I can’t talk to these people about Thug Motivation when we have fake money in the boxes.” Thanks for everything man #july26ththeboydeliveredaclassic

Damn, the dude on the New Yorker cover can barely even ollie.

Free Skate Mag has another Lucas Puig Instagram remix, edited to that Young Thug song that everyone really tried to make happen #in #da #club at the start of the summer but already forgot about. Works great for the vid though.

The “Summer Trip to New York” edits are finally starting to roll in! As is the DS2 music supervision! Thought it was a drought! D.C’s Palace 5ive rolled up to New York for a bit and came back with a five-minute VX montage.

Someone made a new Cyrus Bennett remix with a bunch of his HD video blog footage.

Kareem Campbell still got it.

Quick two-minute montage with a bunch of Bronze affiliates and a three-minute montage with a bunch of dudes from the Bronx.

Whatever, DJ Khaled is still one of my favorite skaters.

Amazing that a lot of these European D.I.Y. spots started with a single quarterpipe. Or that, like, they’ve been allowed to exist for as long as they have.

Fakie Hill Bomb has a cool interview with Iain Borden, one of the most vocal pro-skateboarding architecture academics, about the future of integrating skating into modern public spaces (e.g. hopefully this.)

Diamond Days #82.

Making It Happen is a new all-New York vid coming out later this year. Teaser here.

The Times put together a “where are they now?” feature for that movie that skaters really like on the occasion of its 20-year-anniversary.

Spot Checks: There’s a new wallie thing behind T.F. and a BMW at Lenox.

Quote of the Week: “I watched Wild, it was like a fakeass Into the Wild.” — E.J.

In case you haven’t already heard / seen: the NYPD installed a police tower in the middle of Tompkins. Be careful doing whippits behind the basketball court after you lose on a nollie flip in S.K.A.T.E.

Ryan Gee joins the ranks of Lucas Puig as one of two Instagram users producing watch-worthy IG videos. He’s been posting long lens B-roll angles of various notable tricks from the early 2000s, e.g. Brian Wenning’s switch back tail big spin, Stevie’s hardflip front nose, and Kalis’ Rockaway line. There are also some motion sequences on there too, e.g. Kalis’ fakie 5-0 over the three at Love or Kerry Getz at City Hall.

Sigh.

Rob Campbell: Renaissance Man.

You might remember an incredible natural-looking quarterpipe spot from the Busenitz “Euro Lines” video. Well, it’s quite obviously a skate plaza, albeit an insane one, based on this Austrian DC video. As Americans, how crazy is it that a city would allot such a prime swath of public space for the sole use of skateboarders?

Zered Bassett has a “Day in the Life”-type video with some cruiser footage and a photo feature over on the Dew Tour site. Who wants to go half on a Code Red?

Vice has an awesome biographical portrait piece on Brian Anderson, which covers a lot of his life since moving to New York. (There’s skating towards the end.)

Hey, you know that thing about skateboarding’s favorite jazz song? Yeah, it retained its title with the new Krooked circle board clip.

The Accidental Playground is a new book about unsanctioned use of the Williamsburg waterfront in the early 2000s, before it was redeveloped. Just ordered it off Amazon, so there’s no telling how much of its 300+ pages are dedicated to skateboarding, but given that there’s a skate photo on the cover, you’d think it’d be a big chunk.

Eighteen classic video parts are being screened alongside a live classical piano rendition of their respective songs.

Though a photograph of a skater holding a book does not verify literacy, the stories about managing skaters in a retail environment are priceless.

In light of the recent demise of Skateboarder, former staff writer, Mackenzie Eisenhour, scanned a 2002 interview with Steve Rocco, which was conducted five years before The Man Who Souled the World was even released.

If you’re good at skateboarding and like bumps to rails, it might affect you in knowing that the handicap rail on Bowery and 5th Street is gone. They cut the flat part out.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Derrick Rose is still faster than everyone.

Quote of the Week: “I learned more from Andre Page than I did from college.” — Will Carpio

What’s better: Dreamchasers 3 or the new Cam’ron tape?

In Front of These Delis Eating Cannolis

T.F. Report: Labor Skateshop’s recent gift to the Tompkins community has temporarily been re-located to Avenue D for unknown reasons.

“Just like skaters, tennis dudes obsess over the most minute details of their ‘setups,’ like the type of nylon with which they string their racquets, the tape with which they grip their handles, shoes, all that shit.” — Frozen in Carbonite with a Freudian shoe review of the Nike SB Challenge Court that expands on skate/tennis parallels mentioned by Gino Iannucci, among other things.

There is a Torey Goodall interview in the new issue of Grey Skate Mag.

Yes! Skateboarding gets it right! November 19: A Twitter inquiry is made as to whether or not someone has skated to Ginuwine / Timbaland’s “Pony,” in expectance of an obvious “No.” November 23: The winner of a Manny Santiago re-edit contest coincidentally re-edits his part to…Ginuwine, “Pony.” Thank you David Jojola.

The New York Times profiled Supreme last week. They predictably chose an awful headliner photo. Also related: Have you guys heard about Supreme’s collaboration with Apple? Their limited run of custom MacBooks start at $999,995.

What a horrible last name.

Some young’ns up in Vancouver and Calgary made a sick twenty-minute skate video entitled “Serenity Now,” and edited to ignorance. Even QS has yet to a reach a point where clips are edited to Tyga. “You never could compete with Lloyd Braun!”

“Summer in New York” clips continue emerge even with nightly lows below thirty degrees. “Escape From New York” comes complete with a brief Snake Plissken nod. (There is no reason why Roc Marciano shouldn’t join Big L and Jeru the Damaja in the ranks of go-to music to edit New York skate clips to. “Paid for the necklace and ate breakfast.”)

New footage from the Jersey City rink spot that looks old due to #VHS.

The Muska is back on the board. Well, sort of. Will club scenes in skate clips be a part of #trendwatch2013?

Quote of the Week: “White folks don’t know about Peanut Chews. That’s candy for old black men. My father and his father ate those. Y’all [white people] just have Hersey Kisses in your houses.” — Josh Velez

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: JAAAVVVAAALLLEEE MMMCCCGGGEEE!!! (And Kenneth Faried and Andre Miller and Corey Brewer.)


Pretty Sweet DVDs supposedly come out tomorrow. Anyone have info on which shops will have copies? (Miss you, Autumn.)
