Refacing Government Tender
Refacing Government Tender is an awesome photoset by Joe D on Flickr. He takes US cash and turns the images of dead presidents in to funny portraits. My favorites are the comic book characters. These are a few of my favorites. Check out the rest on Joe D’s Flickr Photo Stream.
The Dark Knight on Blu-Ray
I bought a brand new Blu-Ray player and The Dark Knight a couple days ago. I’m slightly disappointed. There are very few special features. The IMAX scenes look amazing, but they just make the standard HD scenes much more obvious that they aren’t filling up my 16:9 aspect ratio television. The constant shifting between aspect […]
All-Star Batman and Robin #10… now with F-Words!
I’m late to the party with this news, but All-Star Batman and Robin #10 has some crazy swears in it. Apparently it was a mistake and DC is recalling all issues to correct the problem… by burning the tainted issues. Thankfully I have one of the problem issues. I’ll post pics when I actually get […]
Johnny Depp as the Riddler? No Thanks
I have the utmost faith in Christopher Nolan’s abilities. When I first saw the trailer for Batman Begins, I had no desire to head to the theatre. In fact, I waited for the DVD and was completely blown away. I kicked myself a few times for missing it’s theatrical release and hoped for a sequel. […]
Major Dark Knight Spoiler
My inside information was confirmed today. The “cop funeral” scene is currently being shot. I was incorrect about the location. There are about 100+ cops on LaSalle, including police on horses and several people in swat uniforms. There is also an ambulance. I found out there will be a funeral procession / parade taking place […]
Gordon to Become Commissioner in The Dark Knight?
I just received information about a new scene for The Dark Knight movie (sequel to Batman Begins). The scene is being filmed here in Chicago and involves a “Cop Funeral”. One can only assume we will see the death of the current commissioner, which means Gordon will most likely be rising to that position. Very […]
Batman #667 The Island of Mister Mayhew
I am a fan of Grant Morrison, Especially when it comes to All-Star Superman. However I haven’t been all that impressed with his run on Batman. I’m not saying it’s bad (aside from issue #663 which was absolutely horrible), it just is not what I was expecting… until issue #667. The story starts with a […]
Dark Knight Set Photos: Gotham PD Car and Burned out Helicopter
I took a stroll over to the set of the upcoming Batman Begins sequel, the Dark Knight again today. A while back I managed to take some pictures of parked Gotham City police cars, swat vehicles and bomb squad trucks. Today I was able to get a high quality photo of the Gotham Police Department […]
Batmobile (Tumbler) Reaction
Apparently I took the only decent photos of the Tumbler in Chicago because I’ve gotten quite a reaction. I made it to the home page of digg early Tuesday afternoon, my site went down for a while and of course, the thieves came out to play. Left and right people started snatching my pictures and […]
The Pod (The Dark Knight)
Speaking of Batman’s ride, it seems that he’ll be cruising on what they’re calling the Pod (I will be calling it the bPod), which is just a unique motorcycle. I’m really undecided on this thing… it looks pretty cool, but seeing Christian Bale’s stunt man zipping down the street with his cape flapping in the […]
