i like the older kid, he looks like he’s going “ugh” the whole time like his deep dark secret is that he doesn’t really give a shit about Batman. maybe his secret favorite is Green Lantern.
my other favorite part is when the guy is talking about the Adam West car photo, the way he goes “it even has an Adam West signature” and he turns away from the camera too fast or something. the guy says they go into the Batcave theater to watch Batman movies and shows, but can you ONLY watch Batman stuff there? maybe for everything else they have to watch it on the regular TV upstairs.
…wanted to bump Mark’s The Strap! post in honor of the dearly departed Ebert; but sadly, the original video is unavailable. Unfortunately, this recap “Worst Movies of 1987″ [Part 2] [Part 3 MIA] failed to immortalize “the strap!”, but does highlight their review of ‘Over The Top’.
I wonder if there are people who are really expert at using a microwave to cook stuff. Like, I don’t know about you, but I usually just look at the suggested time (and apply my first rule of cooking in the case of a suggested range of times: round down from the average value of the range in units of 10^(floor(log10(max time)))). I have no sense of any of the power settings and just pray that it’ll default to something.
So, I was just curious who has pushed the envelope here. Is there a community out there who can do the things with a microwave that a chef wouldn’t dream of doing with a stove? Like, have people written really complicated recipes that include sequences of power adjustments and rest phases? Likewise, do they take offense when the appliance maker adds in a bunch of pre-set buttons, ‘baked potato? what is that?’ or ‘the defrost on this model is a joke.’?
