In Other News – 11 April 2016

2 min read


One of my dreams, of which I have many twisted ones that formed the basis for Twin Peaks, is the ultimate room. Now, don’t call it a man-cave because that’s worse than using the word “moist” in polite conversation, but I’ve often dreamed of having that one room to fill with as much materialism as possible. Consoles as far as the eye can see. My batsuits properly displayed. A button to push that unleashes the hounds when the local mormons refuse to take a hint.

Man, if I had the money for something like that. If only. I’d have a massive TV on my wall with visuals so sharp, it’d stab your eyes apart. A shelf filled with the latest games. Another shelf dedicated slowly to a growing army of Sideshow Collectible figures. A chair so comfy, that it would claim my soul just like that piece of furniture from an episode of The Tick. What about you? What would your dream lair/den/Bat-cave contain?
