Here it is, the extended version of the hello-world comment I was about to write this time last year.

Things take time, sometimes more than expected, but then they might turn out to be brilliant. I know what you are thinking: ‘who is this guy?’, ‘why is he back?’, ‘is this the real Batman?’, ‘who is this for?’ and ‘what is this blog?’

I’m going to answer all these questions, but before we get started let’s ignite the flame with reminding us what we are and I hope you get as much a kick out of it as I do:

So if you watched this video, you get a rough idea of what excites me and there will be reoccurring fire references, because the blog name needs justification…

  • who is this guy? 

I’m Batman. I actually will be, so if there is a zombie apocalypse and the dead roam the earth I am prepared to be Batman. Still lack the billionaire part and gadgets but baby steps, right?

In addition I am the guy in the picture and as you can tell I have a preference for ‘aggressive’ music, I was born and raised in the woods (a tiny little village on the Czech border in Germany that is) and I wear a halo, because I can.

Currently I am living in Shanghai. Shanghai has a lot of this and then more of this and there is also this (the last one is a little shout out to my DJ friend that never plays Burial, but I’ll keep requesting it).

Shanghai is actually great and kind of hard to describe but I’ll try to put it into words, but this is about me – so I am writing, yeah, haven’t done that in a while. I also bike (with a fixed gear bike that is) and I love Martial Arts. I’ll elaborate on all of this while this blog grows.

  • why is he back?

Because of the Lego Movie and Batman, nah, not really, but I really dig that movie and I was able to decide within 10 minutes that this filme entered my Top 10.

I had a blog before and it was 95% in German and I was basically covering life, music, concert and CD reviews and a lot of random stuff that excites me. It ran roughly 2.5 years and had a small but loyal readership and I want all of that back. I closed it because there was a weird German law about to pass that basically opened the doors wide to getting sued and self censoring and whatnot.  The law never passed but it was nuts. If you happen to read German, then this forum describes the situation.

So yeah, shortly after I finished my studies and started a ‘real job’ and thought that law comes in handy, a good reasons to give this hobby up that only costs money and gives very little in return. Boy was I wrong! I missed it and I miss the joy and routine of daily writing. So here I am back. Totally selfish and getting back into a habit and I just hope you as reader get something back – a tiny smirk, a smile, an idea or an insight and if that happens, let me know or not and let your friends know.

I am back in 2010 and just start this blogging thing again and take you on a ride through my world…

  • is this the real Batman?

Yeah, of course I am Batman. My girlfriend somehow was able to get me the awesome Batfleck shirt shipped from the US. It’s this one and since you might want to ask me if Ben will make a good Batman, here is my short answer: yes.

The longer one is: he grew as an actor (also in size and in the best way possible). What I like most after seeing the first picture of him in costume is that if I imagine seeing somebody this size in that costume in front of me would make me want to run away scared. Michael Keaton was a great fit in the Tim Burton fantasy world and yes, my favorite Batman movie is still Batman Returns. The good old Roger Ebert didn’t really get that one and I don’t expect you to get it either. But I love the weird Tim Burton world and Batman fits perfectly in there, it has the heart and the fantastic that I was missing in the Nolan movies, that I like too, but not as much as Batman Returns. I believe Michelle Pfeiffer is a vampire (look she doesn’t age), she is to this day incredibly hot and the rocks the best Catwoman costume on screen.

But back to topic, I am Batman, or maybe the closest thing. If the zombie apocalypse is coming and I am going to be a small screen version or reboot of all Batmans combined in my head. Yeah, that actually nails me as a character. You just picture that and you have me. A bit campy Adam West, a bit underrated Micheal Keaton, a bit angry Christian Bale when I shout at people in traffic here in Shanghai and a bit Ben Affleck, because I have his shirt.

  • who is this for?

Everyone. Yeah, there I said it. I read that if you want to make money with a blog or something, find a niche. I did, this blog is for everyone, my friends, for myself (I mentioned the writing habit earlier) and Batman fans and honestly, who doesn’t like Batman?

There is a new show that I have high hopes for and I want it to be a darker and better version of Smallville, which I never really followed, it looked to campy and I want it to be a bit like the 2nd season of Arrow, that means awesome. The show is called ‘Gotham’ and I liked the premiere A LOT. Here is a short discussion from my favorite movie news website that nails it.

  • what is this blog?

A throwback to my old blog, a way for me to archive what I was thinking and doing and hopefully something that people enjoy. I was about to draw a diagram that shows it is one third reviews, one third China and one third music, but then I was out of thirds, so it is more and I hope it will automatically find a structure while I build this.

So I hope you are excited, because I am and this took way longer than expected. There is more seemingly random stuff to come but in time this will make sense if you tick a bit like me.

Have a good golden week, if you are in China, they have forced discounts everywhere and if you are somewhere else, then have a great week. Being miserable alone won’t really help.
