The blog of a person....yeah that sounds good.

Close to my soul, and yet so far away. I'm going to go back there someday.

I just learned that "Bert and Ernie" are going to have a sesame street spinoff series. And it's going to be stop-motion animation. Which is really great. Jim Henson Studios (now owned by Disney) have always been experts at making things entertaining for all ages.
I miss the muppets. Other than those recent Pizza Hut commercials, I haven't seen them in anything since.....Muppets from Space? Muppets tonight? Can't recall.
I need to dig out my book of Jeff Moss poems I bought right after his death. The Other Side of the Door. Pretty much the only happy thing that occurred to me that entire school year was receiving that book. Jeff Moss and Shel Silverstein were the only two modern poets, whom I think reached the esteemed level of Dr.Deuss (if not surpassing it).

But they are all gone now. I used to write poetry. I should probably give it a shot again. Sometimes when I am driving home from work, I'll improvise little songs on the spot to stop myself from going insane from boredom. Let's see if I can apply that knowledge to writing.

Anyway, Batman fanart. What can I say? I'm a batman fan. When I first started making this piece it was going to be of the whole gang: Batman, Nightwing, Batgirl, Huntress, Robin, Black Canary, Zatanna, Riddler, Gordon, Terry, and all the other "Bat Folk"

But I didn't. So all you get is a stylized batman painting. Lawl.


WTF is up with this website:
It's like....the coolest interactive site I've seen in a long time. Such lovely isometric and vector art. I must find out who made this website.

Him Hopkin Green.

Those buttons on Batman's suit make him look like he came out of an alternate universe where he's some kind of dictator.

Also, congratulations on winning that art contest on Newgrounds.

ZSL: Did you ever see the TV movies "A Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie" (2002) and "The Muppets' Wizard of Oz" (2005)? Not as good as the old stuff, but still Muppety.

Also, you may be interested to know there's a Muppet Wiki:

Also also, that's a very dashing Batman.
