Satan & Adam – Documentary on Netflix
In 1986, harmonica player Adam Gussow asked if he could jam with one-man band Sterling “Mister Satan” Magee. Amidst the racial tension in New York City, the Jewish Ivy League graduate and black Mississippi blues man made an unlikely pair, but their musical stylings perfectly aligned.

Frank Marshall, Ryan Suffern, and Jeff Pollack have announced their most recent music documentary, Satan & Adam, is now available on Netflix. The critically acclaimed film follows unlikely musical duo Sterling “Mister Satan” Magee and Adam Gussow during their time on Harlem’s sidewalks in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
After a chance encounter with members of U2 and a celebrated debut record, the duo rose to international acclaim from their Harlem street corner. But as quickly as they were discovered, their meteoric rise was cut short when Mister Satan mysteriously disappeared. The result is an odyssey 23 years in the making that captures a miraculous journey of friendship, heartbreak and the transformative power of music.
New York Times writes that “the filmmakers don’t shy away from more complex issues — racial tensions, gentrification, art and anger. Like the blues, there’s real pain here, mixed with real beauty”.
The documentary is available on Netflix here.

After a shadowy figure brought down the Repulsor Tower, the Apex Games were forced to shut down for a brief period. During that time, the lack of the Repulsor Tower allowed beasts once again to take their natural place in Kings Canyon, and brought with them a level of destruction that left certain areas of the map unrecognisable. Crews set up base camps and worked around the clock to repair the map, also taking this time to add new features to the arena, while the lack of Legends have allowed certain areas of Kings Canyon to stabilise and grow.
Battle Charge also sees the debut of the Apex Games newest Legend, Natalie “Wattson” Paquette. Daughter of the Games’ lead electrical engineer, Wattson fights in the arena she helped build, destroying incoming missiles, recharging shields, creating fences, and using her pylon to silence fights that get too loud. Nobody knows the arena better than Wattson, and anyone who underestimates her is in for a shock.
Season 2 also introduces Apex Legends Ranked Leagues, where competitive players can test their skills while gaining recognition and rewards along the way. During Season 2, players have the ability to climb six competitive tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, and Apex Predator. As players ascend the ranks, they unlock exclusive cosmetics and rewards while also being able to see how they stack up against other Apex Legends players from around the world.
With the introduction of fun Daily and Weekly Challenges designed to accelerate Battle Pass XP gains, three new content types include exclusive Legend emotes, more Legendary skins, and the ability to earn enough crafting metals to unlock an additional Legendary item. With more than 100 levels of content to unlock, players can now purchase the Season 2 Battle Pass for 950 Apex Coins. Those looking to get a jump on their Battle Pass progression can instantly unlock 25 levels by purchasing the Battle Pass bundle for 2800 Apex Coins.
Also, new this season is the L Star (Lastimosa Armory Assault Rifle), a rare and powerful LMG that fires large, high-damage plasma projectiles at shockingly fast rate, new hop-up’s, weapon attachments, and more ways for players to build the ultimate load out.
