    Speaking of Kobayashi, I signed up for a free trial of Amazon Prime, and I was supposed to be able to watch the movie Hungry, featuring Kobi, Dave Goldstein, and Brad Sciullo, for free. But it’s not available in the Prime Video selection. Also couldn’t find The Story of Furious Pete.

    Thanks for looking 8:28. I did actually find that earlier, but you have to rent or buy it to watch it. I have Amazon Prime video, which lets you watch some videos they have for free, but not all. Hungry is one I can’t watch for free. It used to be a few years ago, supposedly, you could watch it for free with Amazon Prime. Dave Goldstein was the one who kept on telling everyone on facebook to sign up for the free trail of Amazon Prime to watch it free. I guess they removed Hungry from that list.
