Jason Dill

B. B. Kings

For this Sunday's brunch, it's one savant cocktail of savors that awaits you right now under the form of this edit by legendary N.Y.C. skate filmmaker R.B. Umali (yes, the one behind "MIXTAPE" for a golden-era Zoo York, amongst many other works). As its title suggests, we're talking a retrospective of footage collected throughout the decades and video productions, nowhere but at the mythical skate spot of Brooklyn Banks. One that just so happens to be under quite the imminent threat of destruction, by the way - a decision one can still help oppose via this petition right here. Anyway, in the silly hypothesis that such a landmark would need a video resume of sorts to certify its cultural importance to the masses, then this one would have to be it, featuring a who's who of some of the most classic East Coast styles and pretty much a compilation of the most memorable moves and moments ever spent on those bricks. Just look at that roster!

"CLOSURE"

When Dan Wolfe himself uploads "CLOSURE", the legendary full-length video recap of his filmmaking career - between 1993 and 2003, precisely - with the best clips he ever filmed for classic releases such as "EASTERN EXPOSURE" and "REAL TO REEL" paired up with a lot of never-before-seen footage, with a healthy dose of S.F. in the mix as well, in the original quality and even clickable chapters, every man's quarantine is bound to suddenly get a lot smoother!

We'll also take the opportunity to link to the man's interview by Eric Swisher of Chrome Ball Incident, from the yesteryear. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and doses of culture can only be beneficial to one's immune system!

"DILL" / Jonathan Rentschler / INTERVIEW

Jonathan Rentschler is another name that should ring familiar to most LIVE regulars as we've shared about his photography works and even interviewed him before - around the time of the release of his "LOVE" photo book on the last days of LOVE Park in Philly. Well, today, he's up to presenting a new zine: "DILL", focused on Jason Dill as its subject but not just any Dill, or the most publicized Dill for that matter: casual Dill, with an emphasis on documenting spontaneous moments in the man's natural environments.
 
The opportunity was to great to miss for Benjamin, who caught up with Jon in order to learn more, and spread the word!

Raw F.A.!

Well, here's a little summer surprise from the F.A. camp, with the older cats having fun in L.A. while the younglings are adventuring in Europe, from Madrid to Berlin, notably, with a Louie Lopez visibly excited to be here, and a Sage full of his usual pop. Yes, those ten minutes are exactly what you needed to shake off the heat!

Elijah Berle / INTERVIEW

The Elijah Berle Pro Shoe is a new model now available from Vans that's got everything to do with the eponymous skateboarder. For those who need to catch up, Elijah also recently made the switch from Chocolate Skateboards to Fucking Awesome, Jason Dill and Anthony Van Engelen's company, and appeared in the latest Supreme video (always instant classics, regardless of one's taste), despite having been incapacitated for a while by injuries. A hectic schedule Elijah himself was nice enough to find some time to cover for us, for you, below!

Greg Hunt / Interview

On Friday, Greg Hunt launched his first photography book in NYC, via the young Paradigm Publishing, with one hell of a theme, a friend of twenty years or so: Jason Dill! The occasion was too good to pass, to not question him about his lesser known passion for images that are not moving…

Stacks on stacks on stacks…

All the recent Strobeck Instagram edits for Supreme pieced together: what else ya need!?

Sage alert!

A perfect reminder that this Sage Elsesser kid is one of the most powerful street skater there is nowadays… And Sean is no joke, either!

Pourquoi pas?

Some "Pussy Gangster" extras? Who's gonna say "no", especially when it is good stuff! Excellent stuff, even, when you talk about Sage's trick at the La Défense bank… Proof that well applied pop can open new worlds!

50 years of Vans, according to Jason Dill!

A conversation about a certain anniversary with a Parisian visitor in the known…

Pussy Gangster

They here, they all here, and it is now official: Supreme Paris is real! Under the eye of Strobeck, you know you are in for multiple watch, and moments soon to be cult, but here's just one spoiler: you should not get closer to Greg Cuadrado's blood stream anytime soon!
