Today has been officially declared as Batman Day! I'm not sure who the officials are that can declare such a thing, but they did, and so it is. Let the celebration of a fictitious man who dresses like a flying rodent commence!
This is in reference to a scene from the 1966 film, Batman: The Movie. In the film, Batman stumbles onto the bad guys' hideout in the back room of some disreputable seaside drinking joint. When he arrives, he notices that the hideout has been abandoned with a cartoonish bomb set to explode. Batman tries to get rid of the bomb, but... well... you get it.
Here's the scene.
I wish this clip played out just a minute or two longer. When Robin asks Batman why he would risk his life to save a bar full of "riffraff," Batman replies (in an Adam West fashion that this blog can not do justice), "They may be drinkers, Robin, but they're also human beings... and may be... salvaged. I HAD TO DO IT!"
Here's my second installment of Disney Park Meet and Greet characters, this time with the ever popular Queen Elsa!
Elsa is supposedly, as Mugato would say, "So HOT right now!" People just can't seem to get enough of her! At Walt Disney World, they had to move her and Anna from the appropriately themed Norway Pavilion in Epcot to a larger venue in Magic Kingdom. And even there, people will wait in line for HOURS to meet her!
And the merchandise! Oh my goodness, the merchandise! Good luck finding any of that stuff! I remember walking into toy stores right before Frozen hit theaters. There was Elsa and Anna memorabilia everywhere you looked! Not any more. Just a big empty space on the shelves where the coveted items probably only sat for about twenty minutes after being stocked.
Anyways, if you're like so many out there and have the blues from a lack of Elsa in your life, I might suggest getting a job... OR download my Elsa Park Pal above! After all, a random guy's fan art is an incredibly close second to a small plastic ice castle!
