Alot of favoritism here, huh?

Also, please excuse the poorly drawn youtuber, as it’s me first time doodling him.

Adam West Saved Batman. And Me.
NPR's resident Bat-scholar Glen Weldon offers a personal remembrance of the late Adam West, explains how the actor rescued the character of Batman from oblivion, and explores his enduring legacy.

“Why is a welder like a woman in love?”

I’m 7 years old, standing between the two dogwood trees in my backyard. It’s autumn; there’s a crispness in the golden, late afternoon air. I’ve taken the hood of my parka and thrown it over my head, but my arms are not in the sleeves. The coat falls over my narrow, bird-boned shoulders and down my back.

Like a cape, you see.

I’m cold, sure, but the important thing is that I’ve achieved the necessary look.

My next door neighbor/best friend Eric is here too. He’s done the same thing, coat-wise, because we both need capes. Because I’m Batman. He’s Robin.

That’s not technically correct: I’m Adam West. He’s Burt Ward.

He pretends to read from an imaginary computer punch card, with a bit more oomph this time: “Why is a welder like a woman in love?”

“Because,” I say. Intone, really, letting my thin voice undulate through the words as I speak them. “They both … carry a torch.”

We then leap into action. The specifics of said action elude me, today, but I’m reasonably certain it involved a lot of punching the air. Whiffed jabs and haymakers in the gathering suburban dusk, each one punctuated by a shout: “Biff!” “Bam!” “Pow!”

To be clear: neither Eric nor I understood what we were saying. Didn’t know what welders were, and certainly didn’t have any idea what “carry a torch” meant as a figurative expression. We were simply aping a scene we’d just witnessed on television, from a mid-afternoon rerun of a show that had enjoyed a cultural moment a decade before. Batman, it was called.

3 Doors Down - The Better Life

This wasn’t just a story about Peggy getting a boyfriend; it was a story about Peggy getting free of trying to emotionally connect with Don Draper, which she’s been trying to do since the pilot. It was a story about Peggy stepping away from a relationship from which she gets nothing to make room for a relationship from which she gets something. Stan started out as a jerk, but Don stayed a jerk. Learning to stop throwing good emotional money after bad is one of the most important elements of adulthood; despite its cinematic-swoon elements, this was more than met the eye: it wasn’t just a story about getting what you’ve always dreamed of. It was just as much a story about when to give up.

I swear the older I get, the more I value bad examples over good ones. It’s a good thing too, because most people are egotistical, neurotic, self-absorbed peons, insistent on wearing near-sighted glasses in a far-sighted world. And it’s this exact sort of myopic ignorance that has led to my groundbreaking new theory. I call it Mim’s Theorem of Monkey See Monkey Don’t, and what it boils down to is this: it is my belief that there are some people whose sole purpose of existence is to show the rest of how not to act.
Soooooo, yeah.

I need to write this because I mean, 6th place.

Yes, I am Italian.
Yes, I am pissed all we had was the 6th place after everything Gabbani did.
No, I don’t care about your opinion if all you have to say is “shut up your song was crap”.

Let me tell you something about Occidentali’s Karma.
If you just think it is funny to see a monkey on the stage but you think our song was trash, let me stop you right there.
It actually HAS a meaning and I know it’s not that easy to get it (some Italian people couldn’t, so). BUT. It is a critic about society made in a funny and catchy way and I see nothing wrong about it.
Francesco Gabbani put a lot of efforts in his song and in this contest and he kept updating us every day while he was in Kiev.
He was so hopeful and so was I.
So were we.

I don’t care about winning the Eurovision, honestly.
What I care about is that Italy is always seen as the Clown. Maybe sometimes we are, but this time we were not and I WON’T except critics about OUR song this time.

With that said, NAMASTÉ ALÉ, ce se rivede l'anno prossimo.

I will do whatever you want, on video, but here’s the rub: you must post or send me a video of you doing the same thing first. Tag all vids with my username, and if you send them to me, let me know if they are safe for posting. Have fun, people, and remember: I’m not really very good at anything. Yay!

One Last Celebration

“Where we goin’ Mama?” You asked your mother, Amber, while swinging your feet up and down in the backseat of the car as you watched the road pass by out the window.

“We’re going to see your daddy.” She told you in a tone your three your old brain couldn’t process. She seemed sad but was using a happy tone with you.

“Daddy!” You shouted in an excited voice, your father worked a lot and you didn’t get the chance to see him often. He worked constantly with your uncle and was always driving around fighting the bad guys. There were only a few times a year when you got to see him; your birthday, father’s day, Christmas, and two or three weekends out of the year; so whenever you got to see him it was a big deal.

“I’m so excited to see Daddy, Mama!” You told her as you continued to swing your feet even faster as you grew more eager. “When we gonna get there”

“We’ll be there in about an hour, we’re going to Mr. Bobby’s house. Daddy and Uncle Dean are there.” She said with a smile.

Fifty minutes later your mom pulled up to Singer’s Auto Salvage and you were bounding up and down your car seat. “Dad, dad, dad, dad, dad.” You repeated happily over and over as you waited for your mother to open the backseat door so you could get out.

As she opened the door you looked up to the house and saw your father walking out with a confused look on his face, “Daddy!” You shouted as you ran towards him with your arms open in a ‘pick me up’ motion.
