Hey, guys. I’m currently blasting a leaked chunk of the Batman Begins score as I prepare this bad boy for you. I’ll tell ya, if the score is at all indicative of what we’re gonna get from this film (which I’m catching tonight… I know, I rule!), then we’re in a for a REAL treat. … Continue reading


(From the Vampire Cheats Death stories) This cough is getting worse and my head feels like it’ll explode with the next fit, like someone could take the tip of a pin and pop it open with the slightest prick.
