So I wrestled with this "problem" for a short time. You see, I love the feeling I get when I publish a shiny, new post. I can't really describe it, but I think that other people who enjoy writing as much as I do may know what I'm talking about. I don't think its anything as major as a grand sense of accomplishment, but it just feels good. And I like to feel good. Much better than feeling bad. Contrary to popular belief, I am not a masochist.
As I alluded to before, the line between good writing and bad writing is subjective at best. Someone who I think is incredible, may just be "meh" to you. But I think we can all agree that writing with a purpose, even if it is only meaningful to the person writing it, will always create a better end result. So where the fuck does that leave me?
Write something just to pad my post count for the month, or allow April to slip away without a whisper. Never ever to return.
Pay no attention to the melodrama. It adds texture.
So I was mindlessly surfing random sites, while internally debating my little "problem", when I stumbled upon the coolest thing. And just like that, my problem had solved itself. I found something that I just needed to share.
It's no secret that I harbour slight nerd tendencies. One of the things I am slightly nerdy about is Batman. I don't care how cool you think you are, you have to admit that Batman is fucking awesome. You may think one iteration of Batman is far superior to others, but the case still stands that Batman is for everyone. From the campy TV show (shark repellent...Batman is ready for fucking anything) all the way to the current Christian Bale variety, there really is a style and format for anyone to enjoy. But enough defending my inner nerd, let's get to the point.
The Dark Knight opens in July and is easily my most anticipated film of the summer. I almost never go to movies on opening night, but this will be one of those rare exceptions. Don't worry though, I'm planning on leaving my Batman costume at home.
You may or may not be aware that there is a new trailer for the movie currently making the rounds on the internet. Problem is, I can't find it. It keeps getting yanked by Warner Bros. They are officially releasing it online on Sunday, and aren't too appreciative of people spoiling their debut. I can understand this, because the quality of these bootlegs is always piss poor, and Warner Bros is probably worried that a poor quality representation of the trailer will portray the film in a negative light. But that doesn't change the fact that I still want to see it RIGHT NOW. This is the year 2008, Warner Bros. I don't want to wait for my stimuli. I want it 10 minutes ago. This is the ADD generation dammit, and we need to digest this shit fast so we can move on to the next thing. Ultimately, while the viral marketing thing has been cool, just give me the damn trailer already.
In an effort to locate said trailer, I found the below video. It comes via collegehumor.com and is a side by side comparison of the trailers for the 1989 Batman film and The Dark Knight. And its fucking uncanny. I got a kick out of it, but maybe that's just me. Is anyone else a closeted Batman fan? Or just looking forward to The Dark Knight?
You know what sucks, though? I just realized that (for some reason) I cannot view this post, as I'm writing it, in "compose" mode with the video attached. It immediately shuts down my IE. So I'm going to cross my fingers, click "Publish Post" with my tongue (because my fingers are busy being crossed), and hope this works. If the formatting is all fucked up, you know why.
I hate HTML.
