Mu On Mo #36 – The Dark Hound Rises

September 3, 2012



With a certain chance of us all dying a horrible death some time during this apocalyptic year, it’s better to focus elsewhere.

& to soothe the soul, what’s better than a few tunes ?

Here’s some Music On Monday…



Why so serious ?

Let’s put a smile on that face !

There’s an intense scene in “The Dark Knight” where The Joker says those 2 lines.



Well, after last week’s confession of sadness, I figured the opposite was needed.

Something fun !

This in the form of today’s song which got the following comment on YouTube…





“This video is great. I laugh everytime I watch it”






Indeed, so have I.

Major thanks to “AP” for linking me to it.

Why so serious indeed…













From the nonsensical I-net, that was… uh… “Dog” with Batman Theme originally composed by Neal Hefti.

See you another time for more Music On Monday ?

same bat-time, same bat-channel !


Mu On Mo #30 – Summer Remembrance… Of The Dead

July 23, 2012



In light of recent events, a changed entry for this week.

But to soothe the soul, still a tune.

Music On Monday…



It was fun.

Not sure how or why exactly.

But it must’ve been because I’d been chatting for some hours.



It was past midnight, July 20th had started.

Not that I noticed at the time.

Someone suddenly mentioned “Batman madness”.



It had been building for some time.

Anticipation for Christopher Nolan’s 3rd and final chapter of his Batman movie trilogy was high.

Everyone in the chat seemed to agree.



Then one of the people there linked to a breaking news story over at MSNBC.

A link to another kind of madness, an incomprehensible one.

The hours & days since have barely diminished my feelings about this… event & while I currently don’t even know anyone in Aurora, I still wanted to post a song, like the one that got the following comment on YouTube…





“This is just one of those songs that never gets old or forgotten because everyone has at least one memory they can relate to with this song. I love this song! ❤ :')"






The thing is, I’d never heard it before today.

It just came up when I searched for “remembrance songs”.

I liked it, hope you do too…













That was Green Day – Wake Me Up When September Ends.

In remembrance of the victims of the Aurora cinema shooting.

RIP


…& So It Ends (Again) ?

August 31, 2011



With this end of August comes another ending.

Because as of today DC Comics has ceased to be.

Oh sure, the publishing of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, etc will continue but starting September 1st, the status quo is no more.



Over the past decades, DC has done this several times in very a similar fashion where some sort of major crisis alters reality for the characters.

So, while hardly new… it still pretty much sucks if you wanted to keep on reading stories set in the current version of its (increasingly complicated) continuity.

DC itself means “Detective Comics” but in this instance I think I’ll go with “Don’t Cry”.






Arthur Sad, Batman !



DC Aquaman, DC…


Well, I’m No Picasso But Do You Like It ?

That was the question the Joker asked Vicky Vale back in the 1989 Batman movie & it applies to this next pic too.



President Obama As The Joker On Posters In LA



Now, this manip is SO devilishly clever that it works on several levels. Yes, it actually raises those hard to answer questions throughout society.



For example…

Stupid folk will wonder: “Barack will replace Heath in Batman 3 ???”

Fanboys will wonder: “Why isn’t the Jokama’s hair greener ???”

Rich people will wonder: “Does this mean Batman’s a capitalist ???”

KKK members will wonder: “Is whiteface make-up racist ???”

Now that’s clever !



As for me ?

Well, in the wake of the manip I’m left wondering about art & its place in our lives. Perhaps you’ll join me ?

Gentlemen ! Let’s broaden our minds…



Iranian President Ahmadinejad With A Pancake On His Head



Pancakism ? Oh, Dan Lacey, you genius you !



Well, that’s it for this entry folks ! Y’all come back now, ya hear ?

…wait a second.

…WTF DOES THE JOKER HAVE TO WITH SOCIALISM ?!?!?


Batman Vs… Himself ???

November 12, 2008

Move over Joker ! Move over Penguin !

You too Ra’s al Ghul because the next opponent for The Caped Crusader is none other than…

(wait for it)

Bat-Maaan !!! [Cue certain 60’s TV series theme]

Wait what ?” I hear you say.

No, this is not some sort of cliched plot for an upcoming issue of the comic but real… sort of.

It’s not really Batman-Batman who’s going mano-a-mano with The Dark Knight but the Turkish city.

Wait What ?” I hear you sequelize.

Yes, there is a city called “Batman” but it’s nowhere near Gotham or even Metropolis for that matter.

The mayor, Hüseyin Kalkan, of “Batman” (don’t laugh now !) is suing for mucho dinero.

It seems he’s blaming deaths by suicide & murder in his city on the movie “The Dark Knight”.

WAIT WHAT ???” I hear you say & thereby finishing this trilogy of astonishment.

The mayor said: “There is only one Batman in the world. The American producers used the name of our city without informing us.

In his quest for vengeance he’s targeting film director Christopher Nolan & Warner, the rightholders of Batman-Batman.

The reply (sofar) ?

We are only aware of this claim via press reports and have not seen any actual legal action,” said a Warner Brothers representative.

& there you have it folks.

A bizarre drama like no Hallmark movie could ever live up to…

There’s Some Really Sick People In This Town #2

January 25, 2008

Ok, I have no idea how I’m going to explain this new installment of “Sick Peeps”.

However, I aims to please me legion of fans so I’ll give it a go.

Imagine if you will, a short fan-fic about…

The Batman !

Cool right ?

[Lex Luthor]WRONG !!![/Lex Luthor]

From the get-go this (virtually) penned atrocity comes with a twist so improbable even my good pal M. Night Shyamalan would puke after reading it.

It’s called “Batman: Nemesis Fight” & it’s quite likely unlike any other story you have read before or will ever read from this moment on.

Oh, I hear your naïve thoughts: “How bad could it possibly be ?

Just try to think of an example & you’ll simply fail. Yes, for no one in their right mind could’ve written this.

As a matter of fact, it’s SO bad it’s good but again not like you’re expecting.

So go ahead & try it out. You’ve got nothing to lose & only something to gain here.

Like, for example, the story you’ll be able to tell your adopted grandkids right before you’re hauled off to wherever it is ol’ folks end up.

Here’s the link that once again will proveth the horrid truth…
