Everything is Practice: A Different Perspective on Soccer

Everything is Practice: A Different Perspective on Soccer

Everything is Practice is a  black-and-white short film, which documents filmmaker and Oscar nominee Spike Lee coaching his son’s soccer league practice in New York City’s Chinatown.  The film guides viewers through the parks and ball fields of New York City, and blends Spike Lee’s distinctive narrative voice with the patter of kicked soccer balls, the chatter of sideline spectators and the constant sounds of the honking, screeching grind of New York City.

Lee’s narrative describes coaching children, his son’s soccer practices, the relationships various people have with soccer and simply being a parent.  The film gives the viewer a new perspective about soccer, very different from the glitz, action and glamor that one sees in the broadcasts of World Cup games.  Behind every goal and every moment in life, everything is practice indeed.

Good Weather For Airstrikes: The Innocence of a Stolen Kiss

Good Weather For Airstrikes: The Innocence of a Stolen Kiss

Viðrar Vel Til Loftárása (Good Weather For Airstrikes) is a very brave, very emotional song by Sigur Ros, from their 2000 album Ágætis Byrjun, which was recently released in a 10th anniversary edition.  The music video was directed by Arni and Kinski, where the music, the technique, everything is perfect.  Such a masterpiece, and one can’t help but love the innocence of the stolen kiss!

This one is for the U.S. National Soccer team, maybe they’ll celebrate their goals this way in the next match!
