Original Batman artist Jerry Robinson tells his life’s story in four-color depth! (2011 Audio Interview)I was so grateful to get legendary Batman artist Jerry Robinson to come on the show in early 2011 to talk about his career both in comics and as a global human rights crusader. Wonderful human being and he's sorely missed! http://www.mrmedia.com/2011/02/original-batman-artist-jerry-robinson-tells-his-lifes-story-in-four-color-depth-interview/I was so grateful to get legendary Batman artist Jerry Robinson to come on the show in... more
Joker è stato un personaggio difficile da imitare. Antagonista, completamento di Batman, era il decadente del nuovo secolo: truccato, sfregiato, vestito malamente, ladro di classe e non per soldi.
Nel mondo del cinema fu interpretato prima da Jack Nicholson e poi da Heath Ledger in quello splendido film titolato " The dark knight " ( non traduco il titolo in italiano e conservo quello originale perchè c'è un gioco di significati che uno spettatore o un linguista cazzuti possono facilmente capire ).
Il biondo australiano consegnò al cinema un' interpretazione memorabile e durante la lavorazione di un altro film, " Parnassus- l' uomo che voleva ingannare il diavolo " morì per un' intossicazione acuta provocata da sonniferi, ansiolitici e analgesici.
Joker/ Ledger da quel tragico giorno fu maledettamente leggenda.
Di una figura tanto chiacchierata e tanto rimpianta ne è oggi usurpato il nome.
Djoker è stato soprannominato il tennista serbo Novak Djokovic.
I due sono accomunati solo dal gusto per la spettacolarizzazione.
Ledger è stato per pochi anni l' attore formidabile di una nuova generazione di attori, Djokovic è il dominatore di una nuova era tennistica, ha vinto gli Us Open e i punti di vantaggio dal secondo in classifica sono quasi cinquemila.
Atleta in continuo miglioramento, spaventa con il diritto, il rovescio bimane e per la sua resistenza fisica e mentale.
Sa come far divertire il pubblico, giocando a tennis e imitando tanti colleghi.
Il 2011 è l' anno della sua ascesa.
Imperfetto perchè la perfezione non abita tra gli esseri umani, ha perso contro l' ex principe svizzero Roger ( in quattro set nella semifinale del Roland Garros ) e contro lo scozzese Murray ( per ritiro nella finale del Master Cincinnati )
I suoi rivali si battono, si avvicinano alla vittoria ( Federer in semifinale ha avuto due match point ) e gli stringono la mano accettando la sconfitta.
Nella prossima stagione dovrà difendere una quantità abissale di punti. Ha promesso una grande festa a Milano, in caso di trionfo al Roland Garros ( unico slam mancante) e di vittoria in Champions della sua squadra del cuore: il Milan.
Interisti e Juventini confidano nel Barcellona, Federeristi e Nadaliani sono indecisi sulla scaramanzia.Joker è stato un personaggio difficile da imitare. Antagonista, completamento... more

OBAMA DRONES STRIKE FIRST LIBYAN CIVILIAN TARGETS -- While Political World Obsesses on Birther StoryOh, good.
Here I was afraid the Obama birth-certificate drama would interfere with us watching Obama and opposing the evil he is doing, including this LIBYAN CIVILIAN MASSACRE BY U.S. DRONES THAT IS GOING ON RIGHT NOW.
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, SNAP OUT OF IT, PEOPLE!
Obama's Big Reveal of his birth certificate--the equivalent of a Circus side-show Hoochie dancer's blow-off finale, where she rips off her tear-away panties in the final Big Reveal--has done its job. It has distracted us from:
OBAMA'S AUTHORIZED SLAUGHTER OF LIBYAN CIVILIANS BY DRONE ATTACKS ON HOME COMPOUNDS.
The stripper's Big-Finale Blow-Off Reveal is just like the Obama Big-Finale Birth Certificate Blow-Off Reveal we were treated to by Obama today. It's his Final Orgasmic Act of the agonizingly-years-long birth-certificate tease. Obama, with a snap of his wrist, revealed all...and the slobbering masses fell for it.
And it has done its job...It has kept political junkies focused on the crack-cocaine of political issues: a freaking BIRTH CERTIFICATE.
Was it as good for you as it was for the military-industrial complex?
Was it as good for you as it was for Robert Gates, Sec. of Defense, ex-VP and presidential-level lobbyist for two administrations for Raytheon (which has heavily invested in new-technology drones, which go for $4,500,000 each).
How about the innocent Libyan civilians, in housing compounds, already slaughtered by U.S. drones? Was it as good for you as it was for them?
WAKE UP, PEOPLE! WE ARE SLAUGHTERING LIBYAN CIVILIANS!
The birther stories are so seductive, addictive and irresistible. That's because we react, on cue, en masse, like the herd of sheeple we are, to unite behind (or against) someone we perceive is suffering from what may be a racially-motivated, but extremely stupid, attack.
We don't have to think. We know the insults and arguments to post. It's a thoughtless rush, like a hit off of a crack-pipe.
And this Ultimate Birther Story of All Birther Stories--Obama's Big Blow-Off Birth-Certificate Reveal--is more successful than any of the prior birther successes. It had to be, because it had to distract us from something truly heinous:
OBAMA'S SUCCESSFUL AUTHORIZATION OF THE DRONE MASSACRE OF LIBYAN CIVILIANS, AND THE DRASTIC ESCALATION OF OUR PARTICIPATION IN THE LIBYAN CIVIIL WAR.
Any birther story can distract and soothe the political masses, as it has since the first time it raised its ugly bipartisan head. Like an adrenaline smoothie, it wraps us in its warm, seductive embrace....and all other political issues seem to fade into the background.
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, WAKE UP, PEOPLE!
While everyone is flailing around in the birther-vs-Obama Circus Big-Top orgasmic, political-crack-addict distraction, the U.S. IS LAUNCHING DRONES AGAINST CIVILIANS IN LIBYA, with several successful "hits"--i.e., slaughtered innocent civilians--already.
Why haven't we been watching Obama like a mother elephant on steroids, protecting her babies from a pack of starving lions read to take us down to another bloody slaughter, this time in Libya?
After all, five days ago Obama AUTHORIZED THE USE OF OUR DRONES AGAINST CIVILIANS IN LIBYA.
Did you get the "U.S. DRONES SLAUGHTERING CIVILIANS IN LIBYA" part?
Honestly, do you think Obama would have done his birth-certificate Big Reveal Blow-Off finale if it wasn't for a damned good (i.e., corporate-profitable) reason? After all, he can only do it once, so it had better pay off, and pay off good.
The "birther" distraction has become Obama's greatest tool which, predictably, will do two things:
1. Distract both the left and right from whatever blood-dripping slight-of-hand Obama needs to pull.
2. Unite the ever-freaking-gullible liberal/Democrat/progressive base behind him?
As soon as I saw the "birth certificate reveal" article, I KNEW Obam had done something heinous. Obama would not have revealed his birth certificate unless it was to distract us from something REALLY, REALLY evil he didn't want our focus on...until it was too late to stop it.
The Obama Birther Distractor Tool--Obama's always-convenient and predictable way to distract both the Left and the Right by engaging the nutball birthers in dialogue about his birth certificate, while always playing the victim role--is extremely valuable. It distracts both sides at the same time into emotionally-laden, mindless, well-rehearsed-by-now diatribes each other.
The birther issue is crack to political junkies who haunt internet message boards. So intoxicating, so seductive, so mindless, so impossible to resist.
Meanwhile--what is going on that he, and the right, don't want us to focus on.
COULD IT BE THE HAMBURGER-LIKE REMAINS OF INNOCENT LIBYAN CIVILIANS SLAUGHTERED BY THE OBAMA-AUTHORIZED DRONES?
WAKE UP, PEOPLE!!!
And, guess what? Robert Gates, our Sec. of Defense and Raytheon-drone whore, is telling us we will be in Libya for YEARS now.
Obama, the Democrats and GOPers have just launched a HUGE escalation of our war efforts in Libya. Since Obama authorized the use of drones against Libyan civilians five days ago, there has been so little in the way of American protest against it.
Nope. We are far too busy with our birther crack-pipe, and letting tools like President Obama and Orily Taitz yank us around by the short-hairs over an issue as stupid as a birth certificate.
Now, one more time. Why do you think Obama released his birth certificate today? Five days after he authorized the use of drones to attack civilians in Libya, when the news of it was starting to spread, despite the birther crack-smoke-filled ethers of the internet?
Jesus fucking christ, I think I'm going to cry.
NATO forces hit civilian areas in Libya, commence drone attacks
The UN Security Council resolution purportedly authorizing U.S./NATO operations in Libya was further undermined yesterday when NATO airstrikes reportedly hit civilian targets in Tripoli and other cities.
As France 24 reports today,
NATO planes staged raids on civil and military sites in the Libyan capital Tripoli and other cities, JANA news agency said, without confirming the number of people killed and wounded. Earlier air raids conducted by the Western alliance struck near a compound in Tripoli where Kadhafi resides.
“A military source said civil and military sites were targeted by the colonialist aggressor,” said JANA, specifying that the strikes had also covered Al-Khums, Gharian, El Assa and Sirte, the birthplace of strongman Moamer Kadhafi.
Three new explosions rocked the Libyan capital in the late evening as NATO warplanes overflew Tripoli, AFP journalists said, after several earlier blasts in the city centre and outlying quarters.
The Chinese news agency Xinhau adds that civilian infrastructure was among NATO’s targets:.....
Pentagon Confirms First Predator Drone Strike in Libya
April 23, 2011
........"The real work of that will have to be done by the Libyans themselves. But we can provide them with some cover from the air. And I think the kind of training that some of the allies are going to do and some of the assistance they're providing will help them. But this is likely to take a while," Robert Gates said.

What happens if you take Gotham City’s masked vigilantes and psychotic super-villains, put them in their teens, and stuff ‘em all in high school? You get the never-released Gotham High, the show about a teen Bruce Wayne who spends his time hanging out in the cafeteria with a teenage Joker, Penguin, Killer Croc, and other adolescent villains. The concept art below was created by artists Jeffrey Thomas and Celeste Green. It’s kinda sad that the show was never realized, though I’m sure a lot of fanboys would be having a fit about the show “not following Batman canon”.

Video adaptation of *Joker* grafic novel by Brian Azzarello + interview + review + free grafic novelAzzarello weaves his tale together with a common theme. The brilliant, ambiguous ending serves to emphasise the cold truth that the Joker, this ghastly, purest of evils, will always exist in one form or another, and it is the hero’s - the Batman’s - duty to fight, rather than defeat, it. That Joker is able to close its character-driven narrative with such a strong finale is hugely impressive.

When cryptic posters portraying President Obama as the Joker from "Batman" began popping up around Los Angeles and other cities, the question many asked was, Who is behind the image?
Was it an ultra-conservative grassroots group or a disgruntled street artist going against the grain? Nope, it turns out, just a 20-year-old college student from Chicago.
Bored during his winter school break, Firas Alkhateeb, a senior history major at the University of Illinois, crafted the picture of Obama with the recognizable clown makeup using Adobe's Photoshop software.When cryptic posters portraying President Obama as the Joker from "Batman"... more
