Tuesday, July 10, 2012


For the past seven years I have been observing my own personal holiday: Batmass.

It is the one day a year where I practice Unresponsibility. Not Irresponsibility; Unresponsibility. I get all of my duties in order, and have one whole day where I watch Batman movies and eat whatever I want. I don't make plans, I drift back and forth to the theater or have friends over to play Heroclix or Vs.

Usually its held on June 15th, which is when Batman Begins was first released. Unless there is a new Batman movie in that year, then Batmass is moved to the release date of that movie. Such is the case this year.

I really hope this last Christopher Nolan/Christian Bale film is beyond fantastic. I will go in with no expectations.

So next friday, go support the franchise!

Happy Batmass everyone!

I literally bumped into James Purefoy on the main floor at Comicon 2009. Damn nice guy. Definitely my favorite actor for Medieval/Renaissance movies. While I await the release of Solomon Kane starring Jim, I was nudged by my bro Drew to buy this. Watched it.

Fuck. YES!!! I have a soft spot for Templars to begin with. Purefoy is perfect. Add Paul Giamatti, Vladimir Kulich, and Brian Cox and you have a hardass medieval bashfest. Grab your greatsword and stomp the yard!
