"But Gotham fell into that abyss, didn’t it? Becoming an insane asylum, filled with monsters, madmen, cults and killers. Our city needs more than Batman."

Through the Window Fondly Looking, 1882, Gabriel Schachinger
I just got off the phone with my mother
Me: Yeah, I think she’s doing fine with the wedding stuff, it doesn’t seem like she’s lost it.
Her: Oh good. I wish we could throw her a big party.
Me: Yeah, with strippers, that would—
Her: Let’s go to Denver and throw her a party with mailmen!
Me: ……..mailmen? This is the stripper fantasy from your erotic imagination?
Her: IT JUST CAME OUT.
I definitely intend to create my own work in the future so that we don’t have to keep saying we don’t have work for black women. But right now I don’t know what’s next. I hope that there are more opportunities to come my way." ~Lupita Nyong'o
I DID meet a fake geek girl once. Turned out she was in fact an assortment of squirrels in a trenchcoat.
Those squirrels sure did know a lot about Batman, though.
