Continuing with the boxing theme -

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pa7zKyLpSBU" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pa7zKyLpSBU</a>.

Short documentary on boxing from the promoter's/matchmaker's side. Shows how they build up fighters with tomato cans, etc.... Decent, but not great.

and -

This is a really deep one from PBS and Frontline about Don King's transgressions both in and out of the ring. This was one of the first real jabs at King that the public got to see. A good bit from Jack Newfield, who was a constant thorn in King's side, in this one. Just a great documentary.

Inside the Super Human World of The Iceman(2015)-Wim Hof first caught the attention of scientists when he proved he was able to use meditation to stay submerged in ice for 1 hour and 53 minutes without his core body temperature changing.

Older, decent copy of the film by the Raymonds about life in Lewisburg Federal Prison. You can tell that the prisoners and guards are a bit perplexed by the film makers gentile Canadian ways. Nice documentary for fans of the genre, with lots of quotable portions.

Mat and Danielle spent their first date bonding over Lloyd Kahn’s book “Home Work” and discussing their ideas for simplifying their lives. They became a couple, but “somewhere along the way, we ended up doing the exact opposite of what we wanted,” explains Danielle on their blog.

“Instead of simplifying, we bought a house and spent months hauling furniture, paint and knick knacks into it to surround ourselves with stuff that we liked.  Our bills went up so we got better jobs, started working more, and eventually all we did was work during the day and watch Netflix every night because we were too exhausted to do anything else.”

“Mat was the first to suggest making a change because he found our lifestyle stressful, but I resisted at first.  I was really caught up in the idea of owning my own place, maybe starting a family one day and planning for an amazing retirement.  I was also excited that I had a new full time job with benefits and that we were financially stable.  Eventually I realized that all I was doing was working and I didn’t even like my job anymore.  We decided that we should do something crazy: sell our house, quit our jobs and travel the world.”

Today, Mat and Danielle are living full-time in a converted van. Their back seat folds down into a bed. Their kitchen is a cooler plus camping stove. Their bathroom includes a solar camping shower and a plastic bottle toilet (with funnel).

They’ve eliminated a mortgage, but their are still costs, what Mat calls “like renting a really cheap apartment in a city”. Instead of paying down a house, Mat and Danielle have decided to focus on working less and experiencing more, both by exploring the world and their artistic interests: for Mat, it’s music and art and for Danielle it’s writing.

Not completely sold on it, but might be of interest to some. Guys out of jail tell their stories, and talk about prison life in general. Not much of a visual element, so you can sort of run them like podcasts -

Toe Tag Parole. An HBO documentary on what it's like to be a lifer in California. Many times it's an interesting juxtaposition of feeling some-what compassionate for these guys on a human level as you listen to their stories, then being snapped back into reality when you hear the viciousness of their crimes -

That channel also has some of the newer HBO stuff posted.

Millionaire boy racers

"Sliding around corners as they weave their way through one of Britain's most exclusive areas, these are the rich Arab playboys who visit London every summer to show off their flashy wheels.
But residents of Knightsbridge, central London - which has an average house price of £3.6million and is home to Harrods - say the drivers from the Gulf region are 'a manifestation of too much-ness'.
The petrol-heads and their motors are cheered on by camera-carrying youngsters, known as the Carparrazzi, but are hated by a number of furious residents who claim their lives are being ruined."

EXTREME BODIES

'VAMPIRE WOMAN'
For some people, improving one’s appearance can lead to extreme body modification. Meet the "Vampire Woman”—she's a lawyer, a mother, and the world’s most modified female, with 96% tattoo coverage, several sets of horns, arm implants, and 25 piercings.

BAGEL HEADS
The new trend in body modification? Bagel heads - injecting saline solution into the forehead to create a temporary bagel-like shape.

MUSCLE WORSHIP
Some female bodybuilders support themselves by holding private sessions with muscle fetishists.

Big Thinkers is a former ZDTV (later TechTV) television program. It featured a half-hour interview with a "big thinker" in science, technology, and other fields. Interviews were filmed in a 16:9 format and intercut with public domain material from the Prelinger Archives. This archival footage (mostly film clips from the 1940's and 50's) was used to create visual metaphors highlighting the speaker's points.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCg7xGUz9yADpRH0f2s9zblg


This episode features Daniel Dennett. He is a prominent American philosopher whose research centers on philosophy of mind, philosophy of science and philosophy of biology, particularly as those fields relate to evolutionary biology and cognitive science. He is currently the co-director of the Center for Cognitive Studies, the Austin B. Fletcher Professor of Philosophy, and a University Professor at Tufts University. Dennett is also a noted atheist and advocate of the Brights movement.

This episode features Michio Kaku. He is a Japanese American theoretical physicist specializing in string field theory, and a futurist. He is a popularizer of science, host of two radio programs and a best-selling author.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRx3ZLefZPY" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRx3ZLefZPY</a>


This episode features Sherry Turkle. She is Abby Rockefeller Mauze Professor of the Social Studies of Science and Technology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a clinical psychologist. Born in New York City in 1948, she has focused her research on psychoanalysis and culture and on the psychology of people's relationship with technology, especially computer technology and computer addiction.

The Prince of Pennsylvania - the story of John Dupont's wresting team, and the tragic faith that it held for the Schultz family as Dupont slipped into madness.

Chasing Tyson - The story of Evander Holyfield and his time in boxing, which was largely and sadly overshadowed by Mike Tyson. As told mainly by Holyfield and Mike -

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqB6nQAbg1g" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqB6nQAbg1g</a>.

Both are a bit on the small side, so play with the screen options, best you can do sometimes with new shows on Youtube sometimes.

Frontline - Death of a Porn Queen. I mentioned this a few months back, it's blocked on youtube, but someone just put it up on the above link. Strong documentary about a young porn star, her suspicious death, and the general seediness of the 70's - 80's porn scene. Good viewing, watch it quick though, because it's usually a hard video to find, and keep online.
