Inspired by the excellent work done at Neato Coolville, I've started dabbling in Windows desktop wallpaper creation. My first offering was inspired by my recent trip to see the excellent The Dark Knight Rises, and is an inconic image from Batman's distant past -- the cover of Batman #20, dated Dec 1943/Jan 1944. It features Robin and an early version of the Batmobile, and was illustrated by Dick Sprang. The original image is 1920x1080, and clicking on the smaller one below will take you to my Flick page. There you can choose from other sizes to meet your needs! If you have any requests for future images, let me know in the comments.

After a brief recap of "The Electrical Brain," chapter two of Batman picks up with the Caped Crusader capturing one of Dr. Daka's flunkies and bringing him to the Batcave for interrogation. Hmm, maybe not the greatest idea. Elsewhere,the Dynamic Duo make time to torment Alfred, Robin proves to be completely useless at surveillance, and Batman verrry sloooowly rescues Linda Page from captivity. ...

I don't have time to go to the movies much any more. So instead I'm going to just review some new and upcoming films based solely on their trailers. Because let's face it, most movies only have about two or three minutes' worth of good material anyway. Arthur Ah Hollywood, always perfectly tuned into the needs and feelings of American moviegoers. I can imagine that with unemployment still rampant and people scraping by just to keep from getting kicked out of their homes in record numbers, there's nothing people want to see more than a feel-good comedy about a spoiled -- and possibly mentally challenged -- man-child (Russell Brand) flaunt his wealth for a few hours. Oh, but he's really a good guy so I guess it's OK. Whatever. I never got around to seeing the original Arthur wit...
