Quim Cardona

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!

Best-of N.J!

For the time he’s been filming in New Jersey, Andrew Petillo has seen many things in front of his camera. So he concocted us here a little compilation of the best things he could immortalize. On the menu something to satisfy everyone from Danny Renaud to Al Davis, and even Jake Johnson. Some clips are already out, others are unreleased so go for it! Wishing you a good viewing, with perhaps a touch of nostalgia for some.

A steady diet of bricks!

You have heard the name Devon Connell mentioned here more than once, here, and always for a good reason, and this part here, shared with a buddy that skates quite differently, is to be added to the list of why we dig him, including that rather unhealthy attraction for the least smooth surfaces… Add a couple classy featurings, and you're good to go!

The Genius

Sure, we live in times where the term "genius" is the more often than not used wrongly, but if we were to throw it with zero irony at someone, it would be to crown Connor Kammerer… And his part in Spirit Quest reminds us how he truly has found his alter-ego with Colin Read! One could even say those two were meant for each other… Just imagine the kind of conversations they must have… Now, those two propose us a new joint project, via a 45 RPM of all the music developed (with the help of that Quim guy) for Spirit Quest. It even comes with a download of the full video… You just have to dig for a record player in your parents attic, now!

abrasion

You could have guessed that Fred Gall and co are not too into your perfect DIY built downtown with a city permit, but tend more to gather in the deep end of abandoned industrial areas, reclaimed through harsh trowel strokes… Which does not stop them from ripping!

Brick Brothers

The friends section of the recent Politic video is obviously heavy on Jersey neighbours, Quim Cardona included, and therefore in red bricks spots, also… Yep, it has quite the similarities with our very own North.

Quimtime!

Where to start? Quim Cardona, as seen by Colin Read… One of the most probable parts from recent masterpiece Spirit Quest, one of the most well put together share part of all times, an insane compilation of some the illest front shoves… Ah, nothing to add, just watch! And watch again!

Quimtime!

There had to be one good news this morning! This part was concluding Static 4 before announcing chapter 5, with a bang… As Quim Cardona is never the kind to pass unnoticed, and for the good reasons: infectious good mood, quasi-ninjaesque abilities, an eye for as spontaneous as creative lines, plus and mainly, mainly an incarnation of what one could call "East Coast Style", one that is actually just is. Quim be Quim.

Spirit Quest

It's on, Colin Read is back! Not that he was gone too far… Maybe on a spirit animal search of sort, maybe? Anyway, he announces a new video, and all the Tengu, God of Mischief fans can only celebrate this news!

Gold, Jerry, gold!

Since the center of Now is now pinned in a space and time that could named "the New York of the 90's", this drops at a perfect moment! Dan Wolfe just released his Eastern Exposure 3 in top quality… It's all here: the coolest line ever caught on film to kick things off, a good chunk of the Kids casting not necessarily bare chest and doing what they did best in the street, and even half of the footage ever produced by the only "King of New-York", hence Ryan Hickey, which has not aged a bit. Wait, you haven't clicked, yet? To top it off, this part will open the door to a real classic…

Meeting… Josh Stewart!

On sound, history and motivational speaking…

Meeting… Eli Reed!
