“The Dark Knight”‘s Joker is truly alarming. Add that to my building dread for Harvey Dent, and the whole movie was incredibly unsettling. In a good way.

It turns out that the kids in “The Wackness” are exactly my age at the time of the setting (they graduate from high school in 1994). Somehow, my all girls Catholic high school experience was nothing like theirs, but the (historical?) details are still highly amusing. Also, Ben Kingsley is my new hero.

So Liberace was the special guest villain on Friday’s episode of Batman. Dude, LIBERACE. He played a pair of evil twins. This marks one of the only times that the villain somehow managed to be more flamboyantly foppish than Batman and Robin. Then Our Heroes managed to escape a giant piano-music-roll-perforating machine by singing REALLY BADLY.

I failed to catch Saturday’s episodes of Batman. I was so looking forward to seeing Vincent Price as Egghead. That’s okay. I have procured a copy of Adam West’s Back to the Batcave autobiography through Amazon. Meanwhile, here is my Ode to Alfred the butler…

“The Butler Did It (Alfred Has a Plan)”

I know! I have a master plan

I’ll be the greatest villain

This town has ever seen

I don’t run like a girl

I don’t wear periwinkle tights

I have dignity and prowess,

And I know karate!


Tae Kwon-do!

All I need’s a mask!

In very basic black!

These exploding hors d’oeuvres should do the trick!

(Deviled eggs!)

That jalapeño kick!


Will never have to clean my room again!

Will never have to clean my room again!

Will never have to clean my room again!

How will they know

It was me?
