And Now For Something Completely Different

I don't know what this is, or what it cost this guy to do what he does to his knees, or to the top of his skull. I don't know what I'm listening to; I only know that what happens in this video is beautiful. And different. And worth sharing, especially the ropey thing at the end. So, since it's the weekend, and it's just us, (and though this isn't remotely about science), take a look...
