King of Kong

Hello! Anyone tall enough to play stand-up arcade games in the 80's needs to see the movie "The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters". It's a documentary about the world of video game high scores centered around a battle for the high score on Donkey Kong. Sound nerdy? It is, but it's hilarious and really well done. You couldn't write characters this good. It's also got a great soundtrack and a bunch of subtle nods to the 80's that only someone alive then (like me) would appreciate. Rotten Tomatoes gave it 96% Fresh, which for them is almost unheard of. See it, you won't be disappointed.

Also check out the new blog in my "links section": The Adventures of GirlTuesday. I've been enjoying this blog for some time now and finally put up the link to it. It's funny, smart, witty, and well written...sound like any other blog you know?? No, really, any other blogs like that? I enjoy reading them.
