Clips of the Week: January 25, 2013

first_imgWe see a lot of internet video clips during the week, everything from feature length documentaries to 30 second POV edits. Each Friday we will attempt to bring you our favorites from throughout the week, so you don’t have to go searching for them. This is Clips of the Week.Find Your LineThis stunningly beautiful video from French filmmaker Seb Montaz-Rosset is amazing. Not much I can say about it except that it makes me happy and grateful there are people creating this kind of art. Worth watching over and over.Revelation, a Visual Poem. from sebastien montaz-rosset on Vimeo.Ski the East Freeride TourThis slightly more regional video is a recap of the 4th Annual Ski the East Freeride Tour from Send It Studios. The Ski the East guys are fairly clownish – in a good way – and like to yuck it up on Twitter, but this video shows how they are trying to give something back by allowing the best East Coast riders to compete in their own Freeride competitions. Check out these hardcore shredders and groms ripping bushes, rocks, and occasionally snow and find out more about the tour here.Ski The East Freeride Tour from Send It Studios on Vimeo.Big Wave…Skiing?Chuck Patterson skiing 50-footers at Jaws in Hawaii. Not sure why he needs poles, though.TransAm at Seven Springs RecapHere is a recap of the TransWorld SNOWboarding TransAm presented by Skullcandy at Pennsylvania’s Seven Springs Resort. Lots of tricks and local talent.Urban LinesA lot of fly fisherman know about the shad run on the Potomac, but Urban Lines explores the other aspects of fly fishing the tidal Potomac that runs through Washington, D.C. This is only the trailer, but it is compelling and provides a unique view on fishing “where you are.” The feature will be part of the F3T Film Tour, which is stopping in Lexington, Va. on February 11. It’s free, so I’ll see you there.Getting OutFishing the Southern Appalachians can be tough sledding in the winter, but the boys at Southern Culture on the Fly and Bent Rod Media make the most of it. Major Hogzilla at the end, would love to know where it came from…Getting Out from Southern Culture on the Fly on Vimeo.last_img read more

Flores facing final worry

first_img Press Association The Spaniard was stretchered off just after the half-hour mark having twisted his ankle attempting to make a low clearing header and he was later spotted leaving the Liberty Stadium on crutches. A fracture has been ruled out and Flores will travel to Dubai for next week’s warm-weather training camp. But Laudrup said: “We have to wait to see if it is only a twisted ankle or it could be more damage with the ligaments. We have to wait for the scan but if it is ligaments he would definitely be out of the final.” Chico Flores could miss Swansea’s Capital One Cup final date with Bradford after suffering an ankle injury in the emphatic 4-1 win over QPR.center_img He added: “We will see first if there is anything that needs surgery, the more things we can exclude right now the better. If it is ligament damage we need to see how bad it is and make a decision from there.” Flores’ injury was the only negative as Swansea hammered QPR for the second time this season, having triumphed 5-0 at Loftus Road on the opening day of the season. Early strikes from Michu and Angel Rangel set the hosts on their way at the Liberty Stadium. Substitute Bobby Zamora pulled a goal back for the Rs, only for Pablo Hernandez to restore Swansea’s advantage with an excellent finish before Michu added his 18th of the season. Defeat means QPR, who were again without Loic Remy, remain rooted firmly to the foot of the Premier League table, still six points adrift of safety with 12 games remaining. Remy was not risked due to a groin injury, but Redknapp revealed goalkeeper Julio Cesar had played with a similar injury, thereby putting in a below-par performance. Boss Harry Redknapp said: “We gave some bad goals away, I can’t look at them and say they were particularly good, there were some bad errors today. Our keeper has been fantastic, probably as good as any goalie in the league, but he played with a groin strain because he felt he was okay but obviously he wasn’t at his best today. “He felt he was fine and I can only go by what he tells me, I was told he was okay. He had a problem kicking and obviously when we passed the ball back he got himself under pressure. “We have 12 games left and we have to win as many as we can, I would say we have to win six at least. We have got to keep believing, if you give up what chance have you got?” last_img read more
