Last night we watched The King of Kong — a documentary about middle-aged men who devote their lives to getting the top score on Donkey Kong. Which, from what I can tell, is a low-res 80’s video game that involves barrels rolling down platforms and hitting you. Each level seems basically a repeat of the last, although the documentary and the boy assure me that this is not the case.
So what is the boy doing tonight? Thanksgiving, 1 am? Playing Donkey Kong and drinking red bull.
