This Will Have to Hold You Over

As the late hour of this post may indicate to you, free-time has been hard to come by. This beautiful picture by Eiko Chan will have to hold you over until I can share with you some of the interesting things I've been learning about computers lately.

Boxing Batmen, Batman

I forgot to tell you how boxing went on Friday: It couldn't have gone better. Unlike Jiu Jitsu it is a really organized program. They have a system and they follow it.
It goes as follows:
1) Stretches
2) For 45 min do a circuit consisting of
-speed bag
-heavy bag
-heavy bag
-speed bag
-shadow boxing
-heavy bag
-heavy bag
And repeat. You spend 2min at each before moving to the next.
Before finishing, we did something the coach called a punch-out. He broke us into small groups and had go hard on the bags (still focusing on stance but not stepping in and out just continual strikes).

It made for a tough workout.

And In This Corner... the Batman

Batman NinjasI just got back from my last Jiu Jitsu session of the season. The community dojo that I attend shuts down over most of the summer. All and all, I'd say it was a great experience. I attended a handful of competitions, went to classes weekly and was awarded my orange belt. Although the goal of this blog is to introduce me to (and not master) all the skills and abilities that Bruce Wayne would need before becoming the Batman, I think that I will continue with Jiu Jitsu next fall.

In the mean time, starting next Friday I will be attending a local gym for a training course in boxing. I hear that it's pretty intense and I hope to get alot out of it.

Iron Man I: How It Should Have Ended

I guess I'm on a little bit of a video kick: HowItShouldHaveEnded recently did an Iron Man Spoof:

If you haven't seen these then you should watch the Superman one and the Spider-man one to get the running gag of Superman and Batman in a diner.


SMBC Theater vs Batman

Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal is a humor I really enjoy and they do videos and sometimes the videos make fun of Batman:

and they do Superman in the same schtick:
