In My Heart Of Hearts

"I was told when I grew up I could be anything I wanted: a fireman, a policeman, a doctor - even President, it seemed. And for the first time in the history of mankind, something new, called an astronaut. But like so many kids brought up on a steady diet of Westerns, I always wanted to be the avenging cowboy hero—that lone voice in the wilderness, fighting corruption and evil wherever I found it, and standing for freedom, truth and justice. And in my heart of hearts I still track the remnants of that dream wherever I go, in my endless ride into the setting sun.” --Bill Hicks

Bruce Wayne's Net Worth

I love stuff like this.  Bruce Wayne holds the #7 spot on Forbes List of The 15 Wealthiest Fictional Characters : Police were ready to declare Gotham's most eligible bachelor dead after he disappeared from the social scene in 2009. But when the billionaire playboy suddenly reappeared last fall -literally crashing the gates of rapper Sean Combs's annual "White Party" in a Ferrari Enzo-- commissioner James Gordon admitted rumors of Wayne's death were "batty." Shares of Wayne Enterprises stock are up significantly year over year, thanks to the leadership of CEO Lucius Fox, and a new project to franchise security outfits around the globe. Wayne says he's planning to celebrate the company's success with an extensive remodeling of his "man cave" in stately Wayne Manor.

House of Cards Thoughts

Believe it or not, I only recently watched House of Cards . That’s got to be surprising for some because I do tend to speak about politics a lot and I’m a big Kevin Spacey fan. Here are some thoughts I had after finishing all four seasons: It's well-written, superbly acted, and beautifully shot. First two seasons are the best. Season Three lost something big with the Frank versus Claire turn. The two of them working together is part of what makes the show work. In season Four, I think the show jumped the shark with the Underwood/Underwood ticket. I don’t think that would ever fly in real life. I’ve seen people ask about why they made Frank Underwood a Democrat. Well, making him a Republican would be too obvious and you’d have a lot of people accusing the show of “liberal media bias.” Secondly, if you’ve paid any attention to the current election, you’ve hopefully woken up to the fact the DNC is crooked and shady as hell. So, yeah… Not surprised the show  is popular

Brief Thoughts on Daredevil's Second Season

I think enough people have watched the second season of Daredevil by now that I can offer a couple of thoughts about it. This season was really a toss-up for me—in some ways it was better, in other ways, it was worse—especially coming on the heels of Jessica Jones which was so goddamned perfect. The Good: Season Two Is A Natural Occurrence Of The Events of Season One: If you’ve watched that first season then you get more out of your investment, but I think it’s structured so you could easily come in with the second season and not be lost. You’d think this would be a no-brainer but it’s not. I’ve seen a lot of shows have a great first season, then feel like they either have to change everything for the second or that they literally have to do the exact same thing over and over. Fisk: I had no idea that he was going to show up at all, but his role this season was perfect. Perfect. I mean, what a great way to make sure you know Fisk’s not done while still giving Daredevil
