Oh great googily-moogily, the X-F-L… Admittedly, I was a fan early on, as I was looking for an alternative to the NFL (though Arena Football was already scratching that itch). I had no issues with the NFL then (like I do now), but competition in the pro sports realm can be a positive thing. Well, we know how the XFL ended (not well), but this coming Super Bowl week in 2017, ESPN will debut it’s newest installment of their famed 30 for 30 series with the unbelievably-highly-anticipated “This Was The XFL”. Between that, ESPN’s coverage of the WWE on SportsCenter, and the 30 For 30 series working on a Ric Flair documentary, I am super amped!

Longtime friend of mine — and friend of The PractitioNERD — Adam Rideaux, has recently released his short-form documentary, “Visibly Invisible: Humanizing the Homeless.” Rideaux states that he plans on using this movie as a catalyst to bring real change and awareness, and he states: The purpose of this film is not just to illustrate the realities faced by many/if not all homeless people, but to likewise … Continue reading Adam Rideaux’s “Visibly Invisible: Humanizing the Homeless”
While I very much enjoyed the film Tiny (which was about tiny house living), it mainly focused on a guy trying to get his tiny house built, however we did hear from the experiences of others about living the everyday tiny house life. There’s now a NEW documentary features tiny house people who have been living tiny for awhile—and we find out about not just the positives, but also the negatives of tiny house living… Continue reading “These Tiny House Explain WHY They Love Living Small…”
ESPN has released a preview of their latest E:60 documentary, WWE: Behind the Curtain.

It’s unknown at this time whether or not they’ll address the … Continue reading Here’s The Trailer For ESPN’s ‘WWE: Behind The Curtain’ E:60 Documentary

Ladies and gentlemen, this is Veda Scott. Some of my fellow wrestling fans may know her as legal counsel to RD Evans in Ring of Honor (which makes sense as she began training in pro wrestling while in law school), but in essence she’s quite-possibly the best vegan, houndstooth-wearing, intelligent tough-as-nails lady wrestler in the world. Of course, it’s possible that many of you out there have no clue who Veda Scott is, so filmmaker Kenny Johnson aims to help change that. Continue reading “Watch this Documentary Short on Veda Scott. Like Now. RIGHT NOW!”
As a delayed celebration of the release of ‘Super Smash Bros for 3DS,’ I wanted to share this nice little video for y’all. We’re familiar with the various characters and franchises from Nintendo, but how about trying to picture Link as a European EDM legend? Or the dark story of Mario’s sex tape and drug addiction? Or Mega Man as a Sk8r Boi? Or Princess Peach’s pop music career. The concept of Rolling ‘Shell’ Magazine? No? Well, this video re-imagines the history of Mario, Luigi, Donkey Kong, Link, and more Nintendo characters as the story of a rock band’s fast rise and drug-fueled fall, and IT IS AWESOME! You’ll enjoy how clever it is, how spot-on the references are, and the awesome cameos. This video made my day. Continue reading “Watch Nintendo’s Rise And Fall… As If They Were A Rock Band”
There are three thing I hate hearing about gamers from people who don’t play video games, because THEY know what they’re talking about, right? Anyway, here they are
1) Video games are made just for little kids.
2) The only people who play video games have no job, no drive, and no lives.
3) Girls don’t know anything/don’t play/are unable to play video game. Yes. I have actually heard that one. MORE than once. Continue reading “Documentary ‘She Got Game’ Focuses on Strengths of Women in the Gaming World”

I have a question for you. Would you have an hour of free time or so? You could just sit back, kick up and relax your feet, party on down to an X-scape beat (see what I did there), OR you could spend that free hour watching a brand new free to watch documentary from Capcom. The above film is titled “I Am Street Fighter,” which … Continue reading Watch Capcom’s FREE ‘I Am Street Fighter’ Documentary! NOW!
