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.

Bigger Than Life Or Shred

Andre Beverley has a full new part out — in case you only caught the Columbus Park kickflip nosegrind from last week’s Top 10. Very sick to see him still crushing. Check his footy in Harry Corrigan’s OTBX2 video from last year, too.

All the Streets Are Silent is playing at Village East (12th and 2nd Avenue) through this Thursday. Get advance tickets here.

“They’re angry that anybody could make the graphics, but why are they angry about that?” Monster Children has an interview with Frog C.E.O, Chris Milic.

Stoked to hear that Ben Kadow is a NBA and TCM head :) Instead of a formal interview, he did more of a #longform “Things You’re Stoked On” piece (a la the Mostly Podcast’s closing segment) for Thrasher on the occasion of his new part. Ben Colen’s photo of that Central Park 5050 gap really does that feat extra justice.

That Ain’t The Brodie That’s My Brodie

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 ♥

Old Spots, New Bondo, Same Friends

Is there any chance you haven’t seen Tenzin’s nollie bigspin heelflip yet? Top 3 Tompkins trick all-time, no hyperbole. Don’t even know what the other two are, just that this is definitely in there ♥

Skate Like A Girl is hosting a silent auction fundraiser that you should definitely support. Bid on everything from #hype sneakers to gear from local brands, with all proceeds going to a great cause.

Who thought an opener part to that Weeknd song from all the memes could hit this hard? Pete Spooner’s New York / Minneapolis / Los Angeles -based Various Artists video extols the synergy of working for an airline while making skate videos on the side, and is now playing up on Free in full. (They’re big fans of Zach Moore’s recent comedy work as well.) Ender part from Jeremy Murray is fire.

Fool’s Spring

Adrian Vega via Giovanni Reda. This photo really does justice to how gnar tricks on this bank are.

Zach Moore (director of last summer’s remix blockbuster, “Jake Johnson: The Movie“) is front-running for delivering 2021’s best laughs so far. A)The Ultimate Skate Songs Collection” envisions skate videos’ most iconic music in the format of a late-night TV commercial for a CD box set. The plot twist in this one is so brilliant. B)A Caption To Die For” pays tribute to Thrasher‘s often absurd video captions in the form of old-timey newspapermen by way of classic Hollywood film noir. Give Zach Moore his skate Oscar.

This likely got to you last week, but ICYMI, Cyrus was the latest guest on The Bunt.
