white_tiger: Tigerzord! (A Hero Deep In Thought...)
When I was younger and first watched Batman Beyond: Return of The Joker, after finding out what happened to Tim Drake I always wondered what happened to Dick Grayson in the DCAU world. It's common knowledge what tragedy befell Tim - captured and tortured by The Joker for a few weeks until he eventually revealed all of Batman's secrets, changed into a twisted kid version of the Clown Prince himself - known to most as Joker Jr. - who ends up being loyal to Bruce in the end and is the one who kills the Joker; he spent a year with Leslie Thompkins until he was back to himself, fired from his Robin role by Bruce as he blamed himself for what happened causing Tim to strike out on his own...and ultimately being taken over by The Joker, the microchip embedded on his neck which led to a fantastic showdown with Terry McGinnis, etc.

Until now, no one exactly knew what tragedy befell Dick Grayson. And it wasn't until the recent 6-issue mini-series - which will become an ongoing in the next few months, not surprisingly - that we find out exactly what happened to Batman's first partner...

It's been quite some time since I went this route, but after the day I had yesterday, I felt it was time to, as the above subject states, get back to the basics on what I used the journal for.

This would've been up hours ago had the computer decided against cutting off the internet connection sometime last night.

The year in general has had it's share of ups and downs for me, but I'm determined to not let the bad things depress me during this month-like, a friend of mine moving away a couple weeks ago for example. Time, and being out of the house for quite a while has kept me from updating this journal, but I've kept as up-to-date on my RPing journals as best I can.

On the matter of the holiday season, I will be spending it with my immediate family-mother, grandfather, aunt and cousins, etc.-something that we haven't done since the year before my grandmother passed away. I still miss her a lot, especially during this time of the year. I'm not entirely sure about being out on the road, especially since Christmas marks the 4th anniversary since my mother and I hit a dog while coming home from visiting my grandparents back in December 25, 2002.

On the plus side, I will no doubt be looking after my little cousin this upcoming week since she will be staying with us. And, I have finally gotten around to changing my wallpaper to one I enjoy just as much; also changed the monthly quote since I was able to pick up this month's Batman: Detective Comics that features Robin-Tim Drake-finally facing off against the Joker.

It wasn't that difficult to not imagine hearing Mark Hamill's voice while reading the Jokeresque parts in the issue. The quote for this evening/morning comes from the aforementioned issue.


"It does my heart good to know that today's mindless youth has not forgotten the classics." -The Joker

"Don't make jokes. Just go 'Batman' on his ass." -Robin, Batman: Detective Comics #826

The day so far, save for finding out something concerning my friends that upset me, has gone rather well-and since I've picked up two new issues of Supergirl and Teen Titans, I'm stunned and amazed over what's taken place.

I hung out with my friends yesterday afternoon near my home, but still within the complex. One of them was nice enough to bring sodas for us. However, it was afterward that caused my evening-and part of this morning-to sour. One of my other friends, after the former had left and I had to head back, left our empty cans littered on the ground and assumed that I would be back and put them in the recycling bins! I had been informed about this last night, and that got me irked.

This morning, upon my return from the comic book store, I knew that I would have no alternative but to do just that-otherwise, the office would be alerted to the incident and my mother would get in trouble-hence, I would be in trouble. I don't plan to hang out with my friends during the remainder of this week, and perhaps not next week either. My mother told me that my friends were high-maintenance; I'd have to agree wholeheartedly with her.

A new month begins, and with it came my grandmother's birthday-which was on the first of this month. She would've been 79 years old officially this past Saturday.

A new quote of the month is up, and my weekend ended up going pretty well; I was able to see Superman Returns on Friday, and in a later update I plan to review my thoughts on that, as well as The Amazing Spider-Man #533 and Batman #654. The quote below is from my recently purchased Angelic Days manga.

The day had it's shares of ups and downs. As the week draws to a close, and the eventual end of the month, I find myself plaqued with familiar feelings. A friend's grandmother passed on last night, and another friend was affected by it; they were close, from what I was told. I was reminded of my grandmother and how, within the next few weeks, I may have her on my mind quite a bit.

While at Heroes, I skimmed through a few comic books and read Solo #10, a series that only comes out on even-numbered months; the next one will come out in June. I was intrigued that Stephanie was Robin in one of the stories, and how Tim was Batman in the last story and is apparently an item with Cassie, who is still Batgirl-no mention on whether it's Cassandra Cain or not, since her hair is colored differently, though one would assume she is. Didn't pick it up, but will eventually do so next week. My mother bought a comic book as well:Serenity-Those Left Behind. Once she's finished reading it, I will take a crack at it myself. (She's finished reading it, so I get to take a crack at reading it sometime this week.)

I also looked at The Battle for Bludhaven #2 and was intrigued to see the Titans at the beginning; I was even more intrigued to see Wonder Girl among the team members. Perhaps a bit of foreshadowing as to if she'll eventually rejoin the team come Teen Titans #35? Only a guess, but it's a possibility.

I was supposed to hang out with my friend today after I got off work, yet I never met with him at my work, as we had planned. That left me slightly incensed, and strangely enough, I ran into his brother while on the bus. He smelled of alcohol, which wasn't cool at all, but I ignored his breath until after he got off, then quickly changed seats.

The weekend went by rather quickly, and during the weekend, I was able to pick up the Batman Begins soundtrack, which in my opinion is very good. A reliable source mentioned that it's very atmospheric and reflective of the movie itself; I'd have to agree on that matter. Today while I went to the mall in another city entirely, I picked up Neon Genesis Evangelion Volume II, which I got at a low price-$13.79. Next week, or perhaps later on this week, if I'm able to, I'll see if I can go back to the mall and get the CD prior to this one.

Also got some pizza for lunch, but had to wait until I got home from my final class this evening to eat it! Long story short, I had to wait for a number of buses in order to get back home to begin with, and when I did get home, the damn soda I'd bought with the pizza went flat. Ick. Later on this week, I know for a certainty that I'll be picking up Nightwing #119, which features Dick Grayson v.s. Jason Todd for the mantle of Nightwing! Just as exciting as Tim Drake v.s. Jason Todd back in Teen Titans #29.

Even if it's still only around 1:30 PM, my day has gone very well, despite the fact that my emotions are mixed. Perhaps it's due to the comic books I got earlier after getting off work, or maybe some other reason.

Once I finish my lunch, even if it's been over an hour since noon, I'll see to getting my emotions on a more positive scale than what they're like now.

The remnant of the week went pretty well. I survived not having the computer for a total of five days-Sunday through Thursday-and was able to pick up four issues on Wednesday-three DC; one Marvel. At the moment, I'm alone in the house-my mother went on a trip with some people that she knows, and from today until sometime on Sunday, I have the place entirely to myself.

Currently hanging out with a friend of mine at the college, my day has gone somewhat decently. I got another haircut, but this one was free of charge-meaning I didn't have to pay, which was a good thing. The computer at home is currently having some problems, which isn't good. Hopefully this will be remedied soon, but I have my doubts.

Tomorrow, I get to go back to the clinic to get the left side of my teeth cleaned; afterward, I won't need to go in any longer. Despite the fact that I've enjoyed making these rounds, having to leave at 7:00 AM isn't something I enjoy these days. Within the next few days, I'll be picking up the latest Batman & Robin issues, as well as Supergirl and The Legion of Superheroes and The Amazing Spider-Man. I'm especially looking forward to this upcoming weekend.

Today is known as the first day of Spring; haven't seen much of the sun, since it's been blocked by a ton of clouds. Technically, the 21st should be the first day, but that's a discussion I'd rather not get into.

Save for the fact that I must embark on cleaning the bathroom from top to bottom-once more-my day was decent. The sun's out, no sign of rain whatsoever, I went to work, did what I needed to do there and went by the comic book store.

As predicted, they'd run out of Batman Annual, but they had Detective Comics #817 there, especially since it was late by two days and I hadn't bothered to check last Friday for its arrival. I picked up a current issue, an issue pushed back by a month, and a back issue that hadn't been released since October 1999.

So far, the weekend has gotten off to a good start. Not great, but good. I had to go with my mother to her work this morning, but enjoyed it as she normally lets me do what I want while I'm there. Afterward, we went grocery shopping before making our way home.

In about an hour or so from now, we're going to go to my mother's friend's house. I hope that the experience will be something I can actually enjoy. (Normally, I wouldn't go, but I kind of do need to get out every now and then.)

While surfing the 'Net, I came across three amazing pictures of three famous DC heroes. The artwork is truly magnificient, and I believe they could become eventual covers to future books.

Upon heading to work, I did what I needed to do-taking out trash, setting up tables, etc-, and was able to get out early, much to my surprise. I walked down a street from there and was barely able to catch the bus heading to another street in time. In doing so, I was able to get to Heroes early, and was a bit upset at not seeing a few issues released. On the plus side, I was able to pick up Batman #645, as well as the Supergirl #2 issue that features Kara Zor-El surrounded by the Titans.

After that, I caught two buses and went to the 2nd Dimension, where I was able to pick up JSA: Classified #3, much to my amazement. After hanging out there for the remainder of the day, I got home and had dinner with my mother-pizza, since she was nice enough to pay for it. (Though, I was the one who ordered it.)
