I'm Not a Superhero



this is the kind of hero gotham always needed

This scene always stayed with me because of the humanity, the pacing and weight of it all. It showed that you can’t always save everyone, but you better damn well try.

I miss writing like this in cartoons.

Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called "The Pledge." The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course… it probably isn’t. The second act is called "The Turn." The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you’re looking for the secret… but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn’t clap yet. Because making something disappear isn’t enough; you have to bring it back. That’s why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call "The Prestige."

A Little Love Note.


The way some of us Catholics are raking Pope Francis over the coals these days makes me think that, had our beloved Bishop Myriel (of Les Miserables) been a real priest, a real bishop, a man that we could have had access to, we would have disavowed him too. It’s easy to love a character on paper,…

New favorite song.

I am here for a God who shows up even if I don’t have the right word today or any day. I am here for a God who works wonders even through people who don’t satisfy the gatekeepers of the Church. I am here for the ones who have been silenced by those who checked a call from God against Scripture and came up with a no.

(And the Spirit, I believe, is here for those things, too.)
