Great, No Chairs

Not entirely in the city, but mostly in the city: Been singing the praises of Josh Paynter’s vlog series that started up earlier this year for a minute, but volume four is one of the best yet. Incredible discerning eyes for spots that we pass on day after day. The wallie transfer under the bridge and gap to grind at Borough Hall were standouts, plus the last dude’s mini part is fire.

Where there are re-openings, there are trip edits. RVCA went to New York with Suciu, Spanky, Zach Allen, Donta Hill and Curren Caples. The museum seems to have the heaviest traction of appearances in circa 2k21 trip edits now that the eight set on the west side is decommissioned.

ICYMI: John Dilo went off on a bunch of New York spots in the last minute of his new Almost part.

Someone put together a remix part with a lot of Dennis Busenitz’s post-Since Day One footage. Did anyone else miss that China Banks manual sequence? Not sure how that one slipped under the radar. Wow.

Okay, so maybe a “Paine’s Park for L.E.S. or Astoria” trade is still a debatable topic, but how many New York parks would you trade for this new plaza in Vienna?

Ageless ledge mastermind, Enrique Lorenzo, is a part of a new Spanish skateboard company called Louw and has a quick section of high-brow ledge dancing at the 3:10 mark of their intro video.

The loop has left the vert skating world! Now that a street-variant of the loop exists, the countdown for the first person to do it begins. So, if Jake Johnson did it — it’d be surprising — but it wouldn’t be that surprising, right?

Did Forrest Edwards teach Jamie Thomas to enjoy life again?”

Empty bottle of Jack under the bench BGPs n’ stuff.

Jersey Dave takes photos now.

One week after condemning post-2013 usage of songs from Enter the 36 Chambers for skate clips, we’re going to go ahead and link this ten-minute video DC put together about…36 Chambers and skateboarding. It’s basically the video version of this (“skaters like raw shit!”) and turns into a bit of a DC puff piece towards the end, but they do manage to interview Gino, Kareem, Jeff Pang, etc. Are skate media outlets already planning content around the twenty-year anniversary of Lifestyles of the Poor and Dangerous A.K.A. “The Most Edited-To Rap Album of All-Time” in two years?
