yossarian? He’s good stuff. Also the hurting. Especially his two part long winded yet fully formed and eerily concise in light of all the pertinent information provided essay on why he hates batman. (scroll down or match up the dates, a la the calculator, one of batman’s most fearsome foes ever.)
So, in other news, yes, there is a whole lot of zero plus infinity squared going on in the quadrant. Except that, yes, I’m typing shit on a screen again and putting it in this here space, yes, for good or ill. Mainly somewhere in between, I’m guessing, with the meter edging fractionally toward the side of justice.
Me? I like batman. Nay, love. Not in the like gay sex fashion, but he’s been a nice bit of entertainment through my life. I especially liked Tim’s (the hurting) observation about the Mike Keaton batman, how he had that little sense of that he was enjoying it, batman, er, bruce wayne, not keaton. How there was this joy in being batman, despite the raw hand he’d been dealt in ref: his parents’ deaths. I always liked that about keaton’s bats too, despite the fact he didn’t fit the role ideally physically, he did nail the attitude, at least a version of the attitude. Serially, read the article. Sigh, I should prolly find the permalinks. Ok, that wasn’t too hard. Here’s part 1 & part 2. of why he hates batman. just in case you're reading this in the year 2023.
Warning: don’t click the above links and attempt to read the above referenced articles unless you are a comic dork of the degree 853 astromedallions, or unless you are really interested in every possible angle of the batman mythos, both of which categories I nestle quite comfortably into.
Alrighty then. What else is up? Oh yeah, I watched Pee Wee’s Big Adventure this weekend. If you ain’t seen it in more than 5 years, I highly recommend hitting up wherever you get videos and getting a copy and viewing it. Shit holds up phenomenally well, still hilarious. I don’t care how many theatres he jerked off in, Pee Wee was the man. Yup, and officer bird is in full agreement. Therefore it is totally & completely legitimized. Congrats on now understanding that.
