I just discovered you guys while searching for something to listen to while I drive. Unfortunately I don’t know much about you yet, but someone said something that really resonated: that the summer of 1989 changed my life!! I totally got Bat-fever and it’s never gone away. I too bought (rather, my very generous parents bought) everything I saw with a Bat-symbol on it… Comics, Keaton-style mask for my 1st Batman Halloween costume, cups, necklaces, pictures, posters, toys… Everything.

I really liked the psychology of that. Here’s hoping…
