King of Kong

If you have any love in your heart for video games (like me), especially Donkey Kong (like me), you must see this movie (a documentary).

P.S. I used to be a pretty darned good Donkey Kong player back in the day.... (I beat every 8-year-old in the 'hood.)

Wow, a whole new facet of you appears! Blogging late near midnight, about video games, no less -- what's next? *raises eyebrow*

I suddenly have the urge to fire up my NES. I'm more of a MarioKart girl, though.

I know, I secret life, huh?

Mario Kart - oh, you wuss!

I used to play that game till I had imprints on my thumbs from the controller! Seriously -- I kept a glass of ice water handy for thumb-dunking between races.

Okay, okay - I take it back. That's pretty RAD!

I see a video game face-off in our future.

You really MUST see King of Kong. It's completely documentary about these HARD CORE gamers....trying to beat the Donkey Kong world record. Fascinating.
