Last week I posted the new Bloc Party video for "Flux" which features cute, japanese-y battling monsters. Well, upon more investigation I found that they are real fighters in the Kaiju Battles which happen all over the US as far as I can tell. Imagine WWF mixed with Godzilla and you have an idea. They have a new DVD out called "More Better Fighto".
In honor of the release the battle is headed to NYC in November. I may have to take advantage of super cheap flights to NY on my beloved Virgin Airlines for this one. To read more about Kaiju Battles go to www.kaiju.com
Here's just one live video I found on youtube.

About Kaiju Big Battel
Kaiju Big Battel is a modern conflict of epic proportions. Planet Earth is under threat: scattered throughout the galaxy is a monstrous mob of maniacal villains, menacing alien beasts, and giant, city-crushing monsters that are waging war against one another. Presiding over this mayhem is the Kaiju Commissioner, an enigmatic human-arbiter appointed by a clandestine cadre of world leaders to regulate Kaiju rage. If the Kaiju Commissioner doesn’t do his job perfectly the entire world could get caught in the crossfire.
Currently, the Kaiju Universe maintains an active roster of approximately 50 monsters, including a factory-worker-turned-soup-can called Kung-Fu Chicken Noodle, a dirty hare-sage dubbed Dusto Bunny, a loser sea beast known as Call-Me-Kevin, and a despicable, square-headed mad scientist known as Dr. Cube.
