In the latest edition of his ongoing series ARTST TLK from Reserve Channel, Pharrell sits down for a round table discussion with Tony Hawk. Hawk is undeniably the ambassador of skateboarding to the rest of pop culture, having revolutionized vert maneuvers and business practices alike in his journey to alpine success. As a self-described “hyper-energetic” child, The Birdman can now sit admirably and calmly as he discusses raising children, organizing a concert and, of course, his love of skateboarding with Pharrell. It’s probably safe to say that Hawk’s contribution to skateboarding is invaluable, a point underlined by this engaging interview. Enjoy.

George Costanza was famously betrayed in a board meeting when his protégé publicly asserted that a city planner is greater than an architect. Of course, cities are macrocosms of their constituents – perpetually developing landscapes that are equal parts past and future. It can be arguably stated that no one is more fluent in the relationship between city and culture than the skateboarder, who from slick marble ledges to rough cement of old, interacts with his or her environment on a daily basis. This subject and more are explored in Panoramic, a visual survey of the skateboarding scene in Shanghai, China. Panoramic is a rather apt title for the film, which features a myriad spots thrill seekers and weekenders alike might salivate over. Enjoy.

Lil Wayne is recovering from what sounds like a nasty spill taken at a St. Louis-area skate park.
The rapper was in town to perform at a concert on Sunday, and afterward headed out with his skateboard. After taking a fall, though, he landed at the DePaul Health Center emergency room, reports Rolling Stone.
"The Lou was good but I busted my...head at the sk8park!" Wayne tweeted Monday. "9stitches! Gnarly gash over my left eye! Luv the people."
The 28-year-old is gearing up for a performance at the MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday, and is set to release his album, "Tha Carter IV," immediately after the show on the Web.
