Who I Am

Its been quite a while since I've blogged. Writer's block? அதுக்கு மொதல்ல writer ah இருக்கணும் ல? Anyway, this is an attempt at resuming the blog, keeping it going, for this is by far the thing(read hobby ) that has lasted more than one year and I would like to keep it that way. This is going to be more like a rant (Oh dear, already started hasn't it?) but I'll try to keep it as short as possible.

The source of this post came from a face-walling epiphany that I had just a few days back when I was clearing up space on my computer by deleting movies that I had at more than 1 location. I ended up having 2 copies of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Askaban and was watching both to decide which was the better quality, to keep and delete the other.

In came, Sirius Black. I have always loved JK Rowling's characters and their corresponding casting in the movies ( though I hate the movies a lot for their plot deviations, inconsistencies with the books ). I hadn't paid much detail into who played Sirius Black because I was in 9th if I recall correctly when I saw Prisoner of Askaban for the first time and I hadn't seen Nolan's Batman until when I was in 12th.

The epiphany came, when I realized that Commissioner Gordon in Nolan's Batman franchise was Sirius Black here in the HP universe. Quite trivial for someone who'd watched both BB and HP-PoA at around the same time, but I face-walled at my ignorance till now. Then I realized how much difference one pair of spectacles make. Gary Oldman __/\__

Spectacles, have occupied a very important part in fiction, largely due to Superman.

Man + Spectacles = Clark Kent.
Clark Kent - Spectacles (+ hidden costume make overs) = Superman.

Then another epiphany (Double, yeah, tough to handle). The technical probability of my being Superman, was much better than me being Batman.

I'm Superman B-) (because being Batman and Ironman are too mainstream.)

P.S.: The author is a fan of Batman and worships Nolan. Those who are in a trolling mood are strictly advised to study for their semester exams. Thank you.
