The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters, Fransico Goya


The ‘Joker’ is a tortured soul?

This is REALLY bad.

He looks really afraid and bewildered — no doubt heavily medicated — to me? There’s something in his ‘ness’? He doesn’t know what’s going on anymore than the rest of us? He’s broken?

The ‘monster’ show isn’t materialising for me, yet again. Vilifying this young man will not serve us well. No. Not at all. He needs help. We need help. This is a monstrous scenario. Our society — all of us — are implicated here. We’d best step-up.

Maybe there are few real ‘monsters’, only monstrous scenarios? What if they’re all just sad, pathetic, broken people? Broken beyond reason, comprehension?

Who broke them so badly? Who? What? Where? When? Why? How?


The help being offered many is no help at at all, Batman? Someone should have seen this coming? It would seem those who did stood idly by?


They chose to do nothing. Then said, “Oh, we knew something was wrong.” They let him down. They let us down. They let everyone die. Don’t make he same choice they made. If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice. Don’t be indifferent. It doesn’t look good on you, baby…

And… Everyone is destroyed. Just. Like. That.

The victims. The kid. The psychiatrist. Their communities… The Batman. It’s ripples reverberate ever outward. All because no one acted to help the boy. Maybe they even helped push him over the edge? I dunno? I think someone, something did.

The sleep of reason produces monsters. Let us try to understand this boy, this tragedy as best we can. Try to heal it and each other. Lest we become the monsters we fear so ourselves.

We can do better than this. We must.

Sleepers just stop sleepin’

We’re burning daylight.

Hey, Batman. I know you’re blue. We all are, too. No worries. It’s not your fault. Chin up. You’ve taken worse than this. C’mon. Everyone still ❤s you. Everyone.

Even the Rogues, baby.💋

Hey, here’s the Dark Horse with You…

I Love You, Batman

Truly, all of him

Every incarnation, each one

Still makes my heart swim


I Can’t Explain

This intimate hold

Have just wanted to marry Batman

Since I was four years old


The Who can explain…Then again, maybe they can’t…

Much ❤❤❤❤❤ all.

Here Comes The Knight

In Batman, Geek, Music, Streetheart, The Dark Knight, Tributes on July 22, 2012 at 4:35 pm

Woeful welcome to Hell Week? Crushed by the Chaos at Midnight, Batman? What to make of a joker’s cinema, smoke-screening slaughterhouse? A terrifying testament to the hold the Dark Knight has on our souls, our psyches? Dark times? Dark night? Troubling, indeed…


Hey, Streetheart, Here Comes the Night*, … The long, lonely Knight…

* This is a cover of the Moondance man’s song by the awesome Canadian band Streetheart. I couldn’t resist… the name, the chorus… The Batman’s a lonely guy, too, hey…? Unlucky in 💜… Unlucky today…
