Batman Ubiquitous

blog_Xbats700Man, what with the current Batman and Robin comic series, the awesome Christopher Nolan flicks and that whole "Return of Bruce Wayne" thing, it really is a great time to be into all things Batman. Actually now that I think about it, aside from those dark days during the Schumacher era its never been a bad time to be a fan of the caped crusader.

This week Bats hits yet another major milestone as his self titled monthly reaches the ripe old age of 700 issues and DC is pulling out all the stops. With artwork supplied by Andy Kubert, Tony Daniel and Frank Quitely (yes!), good old Grant Morrison tackles the comic with a story that's been kept tight under wraps - the synopsis is pretty simple revealing only that all 3 men to have donned the cape and cowl are featured to some extent. Bruce Wayne (past), Dick Grayson (present), and Damian Wayne (future). Whatever it turns out to be, I've already started to prepare my mind for the inevitable blowing of. Just to sweeten the deal (and lighten up the wallet), there are two covers for the book - one featuring art by David Finch (shown here) and another provided by Mike Mignola (the Hellboy dude).

Of course, there are a bunch of other comics coming out this week too but sorry fellas, you're taking the backseat to this one.

Over Hills and Plains, Riding a White Horse, Bow and Arrows in Hand

Saturday, early morning, the sun enters and radiates the light of Sagittarius. Three hours later, the Sagittarius new moon (0.07 degrees) occurs. “Let food be sought,” is the personality-building keynote. “Food” means experiences; all kinds, levels and types. It also means real food. Sag’s secret is their love of food. Many, if not musicians, are chefs. Some are both. The energies shift from Scorpio’s deep and transformative waters to the “hills and plains of Sagittarius.” Sag is the rider on a white horse, eyes focused on the mountain peaks of Capricorn (Initiation) ahead. Like Scorpio, Sagittarius is also the “disciple.” Adventure, luck, optimism, joy and the beginnings of gratitude are the hallmarks of Sagittarius. Sag is also one of the signs of silence. The battle lines were drawn in Libra and we were asked to choose where we stood. The Nine Tests were given in Scorpio and we emerged “warriors triumphant.” Now in Sag, we are to be the One-Pointed Disciple, riding over the plains on a white horse, bow and arrows in hand, eyes focused on the Path of Return ahead. Sagittarians are one-pointed (symbol of the arrow). Sag asks, “What is my life’s purpose?” This is their quest, from valleys, plains, meadows and hills, eyes aimed always at the mountaintop. Sag emerges from Scorpio’s deep waters, conflict and tests into the open air. Sag’s quest is humanity’s quest. Sag’s quest, however, is always accompanied by music and good food.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so it’s time to be thinking about the wine you’re going to serve with that special dinner, be it turkey, ham, a roast, or something vegetarian or vegan.
