I see you’re good at Centipede.

30 July, 2008

If you haven’t seen the best documentary of last year (even topping former favorite Joe Strummer: The Future is Unwritten), I urge you all to rent The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters right now. Seriously. Just stop reading and go get the DVD and pop it in. Don’t care who you are or what you’re doing. Or if you’ve gotten this far and need persuading, check out this glorious clip.

I will buy his album in a heartbeat. Seriously, I’m not being ironic there.

This didn’t even make the Academy’s short-list for Best Documentary (nor did Strummer). Apparently only docs about war or famine or suffering or any talking point for the Democratic Party can be considered a good documentary. Nothing about games or rock and/or roll. Well fuck that.
