King of Kong


You know, I hope Billy Mitchell isn't really as much of a Douchebag as King of Kong makes him out to be. Because that movie goes a long way in making it look like he is a complete jerk, and that all the people at Twin Galaxies are complicit in making sure he stays on top. I love video games and everything, but by the end I wanted to beg Steve Wiebe to just walk away and let it go. Nobody should ever cry over Donkey Kong, least of all a married man with children. Also, I really hope Brian Kuh one day feels the touch of a woman.

My opinion was largely the same. That Mitchell guy was absurd, I was glad to see him vanquished by the guy with no life. (I know...which one, right?)

But yeah...that whole thing was just crazy.
The Q-bert lady was awesome though.
I rock at Q-bert.

If they do a sequel they need to focus more on different games and different people. It would have been interesting to learn more about the q-bert lady. I think she probably would be a lot more fascinating that Billy Mitchell or Steve Wiebe

I read that they actually had to cut a lot of Billy's crazy ass bullshit because it wouldn't be believable and that the movie is actually KIND to him.

I'm surprised you didn't mention his wife to me. :)

Why? Because she's AWESOME at inadvertently throwing Billy under the bus?

All I will say is that it's something you often give me abuse over.

I can't think of anything I've given you shit for that would be as bad on a woman as it is on a man.

I just wanted to let you know that I am not really sure of my schedule yet and probably won't be until somewhere around the middle of august. I will probably only be seeing Steve and Judy for about 2-3 hours a day and i have to work late on Friday... but that could all change because my schedule is still up in the air. It should start making sense next month.

So... I'll let you know as soon as i do.

Alright man, that's cool. I understand with the military and all. :) End of August is Dragon*con, just FYI.

As it turns out i came into work today and they had already figured out my schedule. My next free weekend is August 22nd-24th. I don't know if that's Dragon*Con territory yet, but you could always come out after that.

That's the weekend before D*C, so it will have to be sometime after that
