I rented Batman: Gotham Knight yesterday. I mostly liked it. The problem with a series of vignettes is that sometimes you will get some suck next to the awesome. The Batman: Black and White series seems to be the sole exception to this rule.

minor spoilers for Gotham Knight and Dark Knight )

Kevin Conroy is the only actor from the animated series doing voices (he will always be my Batman). They got David McCallum to play Alfred, and his Alfred talks like Jeeves which I liked.
Also, Avatar Kuruk is the voice of Jim Gordon. Heh.

It's just as well my local comic book store didn't have the first volumes of "Spiderman loves Mary Jane" in stock, since I shouldn't actually give money to Marvel while they are in the middle of their aggressive hate-on for female fans.

I also forgot that one employee is useless dick.

Hey, [livejournal.com profile] braisinhussy, check out the tiny boob window!

For cosplay reasons, that might be a preferable version of Peej's costume. It looks like you could get away with wearing a regular bra under there.

I don't understand the coverage though. It's not like Peej has nipples or anything. ;p

eta: Yay, Mr. Terrific!
I also like how Hourman has a vague resemblance to Errol Flynn there.

Guy Gardner Week!

The most recent entry features Batman taking out Guy in one punch and Dinah's superawesome, totally 80s costume with bird-shaped dickey and headband.

Also, Iron Man vs Mr. Sensitive... NEKKID.
([livejournal.com profile] scans_daily had scans of the whole fight awhile back but the links are now broken. ;_;)

The DC minimates are almost here! w00t! Soon, I will have a mini-Skeets, mini-Booster, mini-Beetle, mini-Power Girl and a mini-Doctor Fate. Hee!

In knitting news, there's a meme for the Socktoberfest participants:
When did you start making socks? Did you teach yourself or were you taught by a friend or relative? or in a class?
I was inspired by all the sock knitting going on in my knitting group, so I cast on my first pair back in October 2005, using the pattern (cuff down with heel flap) from Sally Melville's The Purl Stitch *waves at B*.

What was your first pair? How have they "held up" over time?
The saga has been recorded here. I finished them a few weeks ago and they fit fine so I'm hoping they last a long while.

What would you have done differently?
Everything except the yarn.

What yarns have you particularly enjoyed?
I really like softness and the colors of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Yarn and the striping of the Regia yarns. Knitpicks colors are nice too but they're not as soft as the Shepherd Sock Yarn.

Do you like to crochet your socks? or knit them on DPNs, 2 circulars, or using the Magic Loop method?
I just knit them on 5 DPNs. I would like to know the Magic Loop method but I'm very content in my ways.

Which kind of heel do you prefer? (flap? or short-row?)

How many pairs have you made?
Four pairs so far though I am working on a pair right now.

eta: Damn you! DC Minimates will be resolicited at a later date.

"Nightwing is a solo book, meaning it's all about Dick."

I stopped reading 52 after week 7 but I've been keeping up through [livejournal.com profile] scans_daily, Wiki and [livejournal.com profile] heykidzcomix.

[livejournal.com profile] braisinhussy and I have been consoling eachother over the events of week 15.

week 15 spoilers )

If that wasn't enough, I just learned Tony Jay just died. Tony "I have the evilest voice in all existence" Jay!

[livejournal.com profile] quirkybird wrote a nice little essay about him and his role as one of my favorite Disney villains.

What Justice League Member Would You Marry? )

I'm sad Beetle and Wildcat aren't options.

Oh, shit

[livejournal.com profile] mognetcentral, I have found your perfect manga: Project X: Cup Noodle. It is a manga about the secret origin of Cup Noodles!!!!1!

It's never a good sign when you're waiting/desperately hoping for the reveal of the evil twin. *looks at Booster and Cassie*

On the other hand, Ralph looks awesome with a beard.

Having [livejournal.com profile] scans_daily, [livejournal.com profile] heykidzcomix, [livejournal.com profile] monkeycrackmary, and [livejournal.com profile] fangirls_attack on my FL has been a bad, bad influence on my comic book buying habit--as in I'm buying way more than I should.
I have so much in the queue right now.
What's in the queue? )

So regarding the poll...
As much as I love Jeeves and his ability to sneak out antique creamers by disguising them as car hood ornaments, he can't beat Alfred's ability to smack a bitch.

I was reading Wednesday's Penny Arcade news and I noticed Robin's legs are much nicer than Wonder Woman's in the Superfriends art style.

I also now realize where I picked up that particular style of drawing women (especially their feet in high heels) when I still had a soul drew.

(And it's so obvious Aquaman hates them all.)

When my sister was visiting over the weekend, she was curious about the character Deadman. I knew I had a Gotham Adventures trade with a story about him so I started to dig around and guess what I found.

Catwoman: Guardian of Gotham

Ewww. I own something drawn by Jim Balent. Ewwwww.

(It's now gone but one of my all-time favorite fanartists had a rant page devoted to Jim Balent and how he had no concept of the female form. She also literally took a red pen to Balent's Catwoman: adding missing hips and legs, straightening skewed boobs, redrawing anatomically impossible poses. It was beautiful. I'm so sad she took it down.)

I remember the plot of the first volume was interesting enough for me to put up with the atrocious art but then it all went to shit in the conclusion.

This will probably end up as white elephant gift or a gag gift (accompanied with the latest Kidz Bop CD) for poor Matt.

eta: Haha. Look at the essay the blog "When Fangirls Attack" linked to today.

I finally figured out why I love Guy Gardner so: he's the Steve Dallas of the Justice League, and Steve was my first comics love.

I am now currently waiting for a Green Lantern Corp story where Guy hits his head (again) and decides he wants a perm so he can look more like Alan Alda.

I find this funnier than I should.

The Justice League as My Little Ponies!
There's even Booster Gold and Blue Beetle ponies!

Despite my vow not to buy anything for the rest of March (because I have spent too much money so far), I broke down and bought all the available issues for the Nightwing: Year One story arc.
I blame [livejournal.com profile] monkeycrackmary and [livejournal.com profile] scans_daily for feeding my Bat family frenzy.
And I think I'm just a sucker for the Year One stories.

On a related note, when I bought Death in the Family the comics guy ringing me up, looked at the cover and said, "Jason's no Dick. *pause* I mean, Dick Grayson; I'm not trying to be vulgar or anything."

Not counting soundtracks (because I buy a lot of those), the last CD I bought was Norah Jones' "Come Away With Me." I bought that CD long after she won her Grammys but I already borrowed and liked her CD at that point.

Because of freeipods.com, I joined the BMG Music Club to get that "seven CDs for the price of one" deal.
So here's what I have received in the mail and what I will receive (not counting soundtracks):

  • Ben Folds Five, "The Unauthorized Biography Of Reinhold Messner" (still in the mail)

  • Blur, "The Best Of Blur" (still in the mail)

  • Blur, "Modern Life Is Rubbish" (still in the mail)

  • Dido, "No Angel" (still in the mail)

  • Drive-By Truckers, "Decoration Day" (for the boyfriend AND still in the mail)

  • Electric Light Orchestra, "The Essential Electric Light Orchestra" (haven't listened to it yet)

  • Franz Ferdinand, "Franz Ferdinand" (I've listened to half of it and I like it so far)

  • The Jesus and Mary Chain, "21 Singles" (haven't listened to it yet)

  • Johnny Cash, "At Folsom Prison (Remastered)" (for the boyfriend AND still in the mail)

  • Modest Mouse, "Good News for People Who Love Bad News" (there are a couple of good songs but I mostly feel meh towards it)

  • Stereolab, "Margerine Eclipse" (haven't listened to it yet)

I also picked up The Von Bondies' "Pawn Shoppe Heart" and Maria Mena's "White Turns Blue" somewhere else since BMG's site didn't carry those. They also didn't carry Bis or Apples in Stereo which was kind of irksome.

So hopefully I'll have caught up on modern music.
I picked up a couple of suggestions from John Allison's (of Scary Go Round fame) Albums of the Year list, but if any of you guys have any suggestions, send them along. I have to listen to something besides 80s pop and TV/movie/game soundtracks.
