LiveJournal's question of the day is:

Which comic book character would you like to see on the silver screen? Who would you cast to play the role?

Honestly? Renee Montoya. Even if she's just a side character in a Nolan movie, I'll squeal with happiness.
xandri: (Torchwood - the kids)
So I had a dream about Batman last night that was vaguely reminiscent of Arkham Asylum. You know how the Joker kidnaps Commissioner Gordon, and Batman has to run around Arkham trying to rescue him? Well, in my dream, the Joker had kidnapped Gordon and actually locked him in a rickety old tower somewhere.

I woke up thinking, "Oh god, Jim Gordon really is the princess in the castle."

Don't even pretend you don't want to laugh.

I'm totally working on my NaNo. Totally.

I forgot to mention it earlier, but I was reading this today, and what do I spy in the background of two panels?

A blue police box. :D
xandri: (roxxinatin Usoppu!!!!!!)
So, A Death in the Family is on it's way to the store from the warehouse, and I'm hoping it'll be there by Monday or Tuesday. I bought the novelization of No Man's Land tonight, and do you know how much I paid for it? $1.78, bitches! Merry Christmas to me. Gail, if this book sucks, I'm blaming you. So between that and The Killing Joke, I am all set for DragonCon! Woohoo!

Also, Talia has made the most delicious grits I've ever eaten in my life. OM NOM NOM.
xandri: (Radek and Ronon - camping disaster!)
So I'm trying to figure out what to bring with me to DragonCon, because clearly I am going to get a lot of reading done sitting in line at 6am waiting for four hours to see William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy fuck yes bitches. I'm bringing Talia's copy of The Killing Joke, and I was thinking about bringing the first volume of Batman Showcase, but as funny as the old Detective comics are, I don't think I can read them for hours straight. I really wanted to bring A Death in the Family, but our store sold our only copy (the DAY after I saw it on the shelf and considered getting it). I also wanted to bring Gotham Underground, but our only copy has gone missing. We haven't sold it or returned it, but it's not on the shelf, it's not in the back, and I have looked all over the store and cannot find it. I told the inventory supervisor that it's missing, and cried, "What if someone stole it?!" To which he shrugged and said, "Just keep an eye out for it." He doesn't seem to understand that this is an emergency. I need that comic.

I also really, really, really want to read No Man's Land, but the graphic novel format isn't out yet.... which is bizarre, because the novelization is and we have it in the store. I don't think I can read it, because I read some scans of the comic online, and the transition between formats is a little disconcerting.

My only other options are Knightfall, which looks kinda iffy, and The Dark Knight Returns, which is by Frank Miller. Frank Miller and I are not on speaking terms right now. I read his Year One, which was really good, but then I read All-Star Batman and Robin, and it was godawful. The whole "I'm the goddamn Batman" joke was funny the first time, but after the fifth or sixth time, it gets old. Not to mention his Batman is bizarrely chatty. It felt extremely out-of-character. (I loved Robin, though. "Why is there a giant robot dinosaur in the batcave?")

Actually, I have one other option, which is RIP Batman, and I'm definitely not ready for that yet.

AAAAAAAAUGH WHAT AM I GOING TO READ?

Last night, I had a dream that Jason Momoa got arrested for claiming to be Batman.

Alfred called Bruce to inform him.

Bruce said, "What? But we're not even the same complexion!"

Alfred said that, nevertheless, he had hospitalized several of Gotham's finest.

Bruce just groaned.

After that, I had a dream that Toshiko Sato wasn't dead.
xandri: (John - what? ¬_¬)


Yeah, that's what I said.
xandri: (John - what? ¬_¬)
Yeah, idk. )

Edit: So I just realised that I never posted about the FIRST weird Batman dream I had, which was about a year or so ago.

Under the cut. )

Uhm.

Latest embarassing moment: Batman-related Freudian slip. >_>

I think I've been reading too much Batman lately, because I had this dream last night. )

So [livejournal.com profile] ket_makura is watching Batman Begins for the first time.

[00:38] KetMakura: This must have been quite fucked up for Rachel when she's drugged out of her mind
[00:39] trueXandri: I KNOW
[00:39] trueXandri: I hate her so bad, but I love the scene where her eyes are rolling around like WTFFFFFFFFFF
[00:39] KetMakura: I would have shat in the Batmible
[00:39] trueXandri: SRSLY
[00:39] trueXandri: I would have barfed.
[00:39] trueXandri: and then felt incredibly guilty later.
[00:39] KetMakura: Just spew and poop flying all over the place. "Uhm...sorry, Batman"
[00:40] trueXandri: HOW EMBARASSING
[00:40] trueXandri: I WOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO LOOK HIM IN THE FACE AGAIN
[00:40] KetMakura: It's gotta have leather seats, right? Easy to clean
[00:40] trueXandri: yes, but
[00:40] trueXandri: that's not pretty
[00:40] trueXandri: you know what's worse?
[00:40] KetMakura: What?
[00:40] trueXandri: you know who's cleaning it, right?
[00:40] trueXandri: POOR ALFRED.
[00:40] KetMakura: Poor Alfred!
[00:41] trueXandri: ;_;
[00:41] trueXandri: I would just DIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
[00:41] KetMakura: "Yeah, Rachel, uhm...had an accident"
