Amoung the Righteous

PBS has an interesting documentary related to the Holocaust in North Africa, and the relationship between the Jews and the Arabs at the time. Well worth a watch.

Watch Among the Righteous on PBS. See more from Among the Righteous.

Street Fighter 4 Life

Having spent my fair share of time in pizza parlors, arcades, and comic shops as a kid (and as an adult for that matter), I played many a fighting game in my day. Claiming to be the best at Street Fighter or King of Fighters became a bragging right that had to be earned by defeating other kids from school on an arcade cabinet and in public. I was pretty good. Not great, but better than most in my area.

It wasn't until I moved up to Northern California that I came across professional Street Fighter players, and I then realized how inadequate my skills were. I Got Next is a documentary that focuses on the competitive Street Fighter community, and some of its most recognizable individuals.
