If I don't say it enough, then let me say that Gaiman can write a damn fine story. The thing is this wasn't a Batman story, this was a story about Batman. Better yet this was a story about the Batman you know as a kid. The protector of Gotham, not the paranoid asshole that reading plenty of comics makes him out to be. Yes, it's been done before though this felt different. It was an ice cold glass of water on sweltering hot day, something you've had before though because of the timing it just feels all that much greater.
Not to say it wouldn't be just as great another time but it was certainly something I needed at the moment.
Item 1: Batman vs. Darkseid in Final Crisis(spoilers, spoilers, blah, blah, blah)
Item 2: Batman vs. Darkseid in the DCAU.
In conclusion, DCAU >>>>>>>>>> DCU. Thank you and goodnight.
ETA: I claim no responsibility for the possible 'altering' any 'facts' presented in this case.
6 hr. and 15 minutes to go!!!!!
Not sure if it's the caffine, wearing my Harley shirt(which always makes me act hyper), or just months of excitement reaching towards critical mass... but I can't sit still. The movie is going to be epic.
*is off to watch episodes of B:TAS and do face painting*
Gargoylekitty: *picks up phone cautiously* Yes?
Ma mere: You should go to K-Mart, they have a lot of Batman stuff on sale.
Gargoylekitty: Okay! *hangs up and goes*
Now, I wasn't expecting much though I certainly wasn't expecting this...
Movie Masters Joker! <3<3<3
The same figure that's been sold out everywere since it came out over a month ago and K-Mart had 3! I bought 2(one for me and one for sale or opening, haven't decided yet). Between that, getting Flinch #11, and watching Batman: Unmasked on the history channel last night, my day was made.
In other news... 18 hours until TDK!!!! *dies of glee*
No one thought they'd do it. It was all about selling tickets so why would they ever do it. Yet... they did. They not only gave away free tickets to IMAX showings of TDK but free tickets to IMAX showings scheduled 3 days before the release date. Alas, I live no closer than 8 hr from the nearest one. *le sigh*
((oh, and fyi: they're 'sold out' by this point))
To top off the bad luck category there was also a viral call today, apparently you hear the bank heist and the Joker laugh, and I missed it on account of having my teeth drilled. Oi vey. Oh well, I'll still be seeing it at midnight on the 18th. *goes off to pick out outfit to go with the face paint*
10 DAYS UNTIL
THE DARK KNIGHT!!!!1111
Oh and the Gotham Knight DVD is coming out today along with today being the day of the Citizens for Batman event at 10PM in Chicago & NY: http://citizensforbatman.org/
In other viral/TDK news there's another countdown going on with the Joker side of things:
That time however is set to go off at 10PM on the 10th. Alas I have work that day. *sigh*
The site's updated with a checklist including all the events thus far.
To the side of the list is another list with all the websites found in the viral and all around the check list are clickable items that lead to Gotham City Police reports about each of the events.
With only three items left on the checklist and 18 days left until the movie comes out I have a feeling things are really going to speed up now.
