Well I have just turned in my last Grad School assignment. It is done!! All I have to do now is wait for my grade. If all goes according to plan, it will be an A and I will have straight A's for Grad School. I hope it happens, that would be super cool. It is a little weird being done now. It took so much of my life for the last two years, that I am unsure what I will now do with all of my free time. I'll say one thing, I am very much looking forward to have a consistent social life again.
I also think I will learn how to play the piano. I always wanted to. We will see. But for now I leave you with a video of Community that always makes me laugh.

We are just a month away from the release of The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan's last installment in his epic Batman series. To get ready for this movie event, I have been watching one previous Batman movie per week. (This week's film is the horrifically bad Batman & Robin.)
It's been a fun project. In fact I had forgotten how good some of them are, especially Batman Returns. Yes it is a very dark movie, however it is a pretty original story, and it has influenced many characters of the Batman universe for years to come. (Look at Penguin and Catwoman.) You can also see its impact on the classic animated series, Batman the Animated Series.
While exploring the interwebs, I found this very interesting article on Batman Returns. Many of the information in the article comes from the Batman Returns special edition DVD, yet it is still a good read.
