Limosine [sic], the much speculated-on company born out of the exodus from 917 via much of the same roster (Logan, Cyrus, Max et al. + some new teamriders), released a five-minute teaser for their upcoming video ❤️
This one deserves way more burn on the skateboard media circuit: “blast!” by Vancouver-based videographer, Chance Swainson. Starts off with Dustin Henry and his brother, continues with a whole slate of new-gen Vancouver dudes, and has an awesome ender part from Tremaine Glasgow — with incredible #musicsupervision the whole way through. Can’t remember the last time I wanted someone to land a trick as bad as Tre’s boardslide on the wood fence.
We live in strange days for anticipating something.
We anticipate albums for years only to leave trash emojis in the comments two seconds after they land on streaming platforms.
People anticipated a prequel to the most analyzed TV show in history, only to be disappointed that it didn’t do what it had no business doing in the first place.
soccer football fans keep anticipating it “coming home,” only for it to get lost along the way.
…and the Knicks. Jesus, don’t even ask. A wise man once said that expecting a Knicks decision to work out was akin to hoping the sun wouldn’t set.
But in our small corner of the skateboard universe, there has been no one thing as anticipated as That Keith Denley Part™.
Congratulations to John Gardner on the pro board ♥ There are few skaters as contagiously fun to watch as John, and if getting people hyped to skate is the principal purpose of why we have pro skateboarders to begin with, John should’ve been pro ages ago :) Creature dropped a remix of his footy from the past few years to illustrate that exact point.

Can’t think of a recent skate commercial that was this good. Philly Santosuosso and a friend pay homage to Spike and Mike’s “Is it the shoes?” Jordan ad on the occasion of Philly’s new Venture truck. The execution is just so, so good, right down to every little detail. Give everyone involved a raise.
Alexis Lacroix (the 2019 Q.S.O.T.Y.) is the latest guest on The Bunt. The origin story behind the eponymous catch-phrase is as good as you think it is.
A new edition of Bronze 56k radio to help celebrate that stimmy.
Skate Jawn and Adidas came together for a new edit of the current Philly generation, which includes the first Jamal Smith sighting in a minute ♥

Thanks to everyone who grabbed something from the webstore over the weekend. Holiday QS goods should have made their way to most U.S. shops by now. Arriving in Canada + Japan this week. Europe + everywhere else next week. Thank you for the support during these shaky times ♥
If you missed it in July, now would be a good time to read Farran’s #longform Slam City interview with Tom Knox about …lines.
“It is like Tom Knox is doing missionary work, faithfully showing that London is skateable. He ardently skates his home surroundings, teaching us, like a prophet finding a spring of water in the desert.” — Everyday Hybridity re: the spots in Tom Knox’s “Atlantic Drift” part.
Thrasher posted the interview with Leo, Cher and Stephen about Glue Skateboards online.
