Lennie Kirk

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!

Your Lennie mixtape!

A reminder on one of our most intense character ever, and the occasion to watch once gain his part in the 1997 Time Code. A classic, if there ever was one… And if you are interested in learning more about Lennie's story, his old friend Dennis McGrath recently published the Heaven book.

Now, this is a great idea! Not sure Lennie Kirk is that known amongst the young ones, while they still could learn a lot from this character, well, at least from his take on skateboarding… Crazy ideas, he did have them, and it seems every single one was battled off the attacked spot which, in the end, translates into you being scared to death in front of your screen, even twenty years later… Once again, another great mixtape, Monsieur Manolo!
