Video of the Day: Kite Fighting in Rio de Janeiro

kite-fighting-rio-1 kitekite-fighting-rio-3

Remember that Van Damme movie Kickboxer where the fighters dip their hands in resin and then broken glass before they fight? These kids in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro pretty much do that but with kites! They actually coat their kite strings with wax mixed with ground up glass so they can fly by and cut their opponents string! Watch this fascinating portrait of kite fighting in Brazil below.

Music Video: Florence and the Machine “Ship To Wreck”


Florence Welsh wrestles with herself, quite literally, in her latest video for “Ship To Wreck”, once again directed by Vincent Haycock. I love it when an artist and a director work together for multiple videos on one album; Welsh and Haycock have really found a great chemistry (see “What Kind of Man” and “St Jude”). Hopefully there’s a video for every song on the album!

Watch Florence and the Machine’s “Ship to Wreck” below.
