The trailer for Jeremy Elkin’s All the Streets Are Silent — a film idea that once got floated around as a documentary about the creation of Zoo York’s Mixtape video before unraveling into a much larger narrative — is now live. Anybody whose interests line up with the things discussed on this website over the years (rap, skating midtown twenty deep, #clubbing) should have reason to be excited that the wait is over :)
Cyrus really elevated the bar on tricks that utilize the re-built fountain ground at Flushing in his new HUF commercial. Wow.
Enjoyed this quick Jasper Stieve part from Venture and NJ Skateshop. (You should rewatch his Sportsmanshit section, btw.)
Lots of interviews this week…

And after that Biarritz edit, we are inclined to agree ♥
