Batman Recommends: How to Keep Busy Until Dark Knight Rises
10. Look Like Batman
Wanna look like Batman? Ha! Good luck trying. My brooding look can only be achieved by having no respect for authority, a serious death wish only a psychotic clown could understand, abs that can crunch a two-faced coin, a black cape…and really expensive latex only billionaires can afford. However, there is a free app called TDKR: Gotham City’s Most Wanted that will take your average face and put a 3D rendered Batman, Bane, or Catwoman mask on it. You can then take a photo of your newly created monstrosity and post it on the Internet for everyone to laugh at and say “you don’t look like Batman; where’s your cape?”
9. Laugh with Batman
Sometimes you have to look at yourselves in the mirror and laugh. No, that wasn’t a typo. That’s why I like to follow the adventures of an Instagram comic posted by @legobatman. For those of you living in a cave (highly recommended BTW), Instagram is a photo sharing community app for Apple and Android devices that was recently acquired by a tiny company called Facebook. You can follow your friends or find complete strangers through hashtagging and then see the world through their eyes. In this case, @legobatman has used this new social platform to publish daily satirical comics that revolve around my LEGO counterpart. I like to read these while perched on top of Wayne Tower and then see if I laugh so hard I fall off the building. It’s a great survival tactic for a guy like me. He also runs occasional contest for fans.
