More Parkour!

By johnboy - 28 July 2009 23

Young people jumping all over landmarks? Check!
Pirate metal? Check!
Ninjas? Check!

If only there was a skateboard this one would be made of solid gold win!

    I’m going to Finland, these guys aren’t. We jammed to celebrate. Shame I’m not a good camera man, we’re better than we look. Honest. Excellent soundtrack as promised

how’s that parkour. more like jumping over 0.5m blocks. put into youtube parkour to see what real parkour is.

Metal + Jetro Tull = Pirate ?

Multilevel carparks would have worked better but then it wouldn’t have been “Canberra”.

Would Stromlo Park work? Non-urban Parkour, that would be very Canberra!

That was a really good scene right in the middle there though; when like 4 guys jumped over that waist high white stone. Wow.

Parkour in Canberra could probably be good however this is just a bunch of kids hopping over a big stone. Having said that, I couldn’t get my fat old arse jumping a 20 cent piece.

The pirate metal might be OK if the vocalist wasn’t playing one of those handheld keyboard thingys ala Pseudo Echo circa 1986.

Looks like wheelchair material to me

I actually like Parkour, but Canberra just ain’t the place to strut it out. The high density landscape just isn’t there.

It belongs where it was originated, France.

Death to false metal.

You’ve obviously not heard Battleheart sing ‘Wenches and Mead’.

Reminds me of the Woodstock album where Grace Slick introduces the Jefferson Airplane set by saying “You have seen the heavy groups, now you will hear morning maniac music.”

Hehe! Maybe I should give it a go! I’ve never had time for it though, I kind of lump it into a novelty category like the whole ‘talk like a pirate day’ thing, pirates have had a renaissance lately and metal is supposed to be against the trend.

That said, a few more steps back and all metal is a little silly isn’t it?

Not that I don’t love it mind.

Surely you mean Alestorm?

That was really… reaaaaaallllyyy… un-impressive.

Never have liked the Parkour that has come out of Canberra.

Yeah they should just give up and do easier stuff like useless, pointless and unconstructive bitching.

Jim Jones 2:55 pm 28 Jul 09

Nice soundtrack, but that isn’t *real* pirate metal.

Alestorm are the real deal: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ta-Z_psXODw
