The King of Kong
A Fistfull of Quarters

Tonight at SF's famous Lumiere Theatre is the premiere of what is perhaps the single greatest Donkey Kong documentary ever concieved my man or beast... King of Kong: A Fistfull of Quarters. And a special Q&A with Director Seth Gordon!

The assembled Isotope crew will be there in force tonight, and so should you!

Watch the trailer

UPDATE: Wow, the reviews aren't wrong. That was really, really great!

UPDATE #2: My friend and famous blogger of all things good and nerdy Whitney Matheson pointed me towards this interesting and insightful follow-up conversation with Billy Mitchell that is a must-read for anyone who enjoyed this film.

David Brothers Big Ups the Isotope
& We're Basking In the Love

One of my favorite new additions to the ever-expanding Isotope social scene is David Brothers. Not only does he sling a mean plastic guitar and is my favorite rhythm section on Guitar Hero's version of Radar Love... but the esteemed Mister Brothers writes smart comic-centric observations and rants at the wonderful, a bunch of those videogame strategy guides we're ashamed of needing, as well as articles for the kick-ass Hardcore Gamer Magazine.

Check out his bio from the latest issue, it brought a manly tear to my eye. Thanks, David!
