This Is The Greatest Medley Of Batman Music That You’ll Ever Hear. Ever.

Holy hemiola, Batman!

This is what happens when you take a pianist, a cellist, and 50 years of Batman music and film and put them together. And when you throw in every single Batmobile? It gets even better.

The Piano Guys have always loved super heroes movies, both for their dramatic scores and the vivid stories. What’s why they made possibly the world’s greatest homage to Batman.

You’re going to love this.

Those first few notes will never stop being associated with Batman.

17 Reasons Bruce Wayne Is A Straight Up Boss

Happy birthday, definitely-not-Batman!

1. The life of a sad billionaire orphan isn’t easy, but Bruce Wayne handles it with impeccable style.

2. Remember that time he handled the tragic death of his parents like a man? I do.

3. And when some little punk tried to get in his face about being an orphan or whatever, Bruce had absolutely none of it.

FOX / Via grantland.com

4. He cracked that sucker’s face open with his father’s watch because Bruce Wayne doesn’t have ~time~ for bullies.

And Alfred let him do it. Never forget that.

5. While other kids his age are collecting Pokémon cards, Bruce collects evidence of corruption in the city he calls home.

6. (He also often falls asleep on the evidence of corruption in the city he calls home but that’s OK Bruce, it beats doing homework.)

7. But seriously, Bruce Wayne is a genius boy detective and every single cop in Gotham wishes they had his skills.

Even these two. Especially these two.

8. Bruce Wayne once fell down a hill and probably sprained his ankle. Do you think that stopped him?

9. IT DIDN’T. He army-crawled right back up that hill and arrived in time to drink tea and watch the sunrise.

WHY DO WE FALL?

10. The young ladies of Gotham have also noticed that Bruce is a total BAMF.

11. Selina Kyle might even like him, and she doesn’t like anyone.

12. Bruce is the de facto head of a multibillion dollar company. In case you didn’t know.

FOX

13. His Board of Directors thinks he’s just a little boy but that is the last mistake any of them will EVER MAKE.

FOX

14. Because Bruce Wayne isn’t even close to messing around when it comes to his parents’ legacy.

15. That’s just the kind of guy Bruce is! Brave, stalwart, true, and also a total badass-in-the-making.

16. So until everything falls to shit and he decides to dress up like a bat and wreck criminals in his spare time, Gotham’s going to have to answer to Bruce Wayne.

17. It’s Bruce’s world and we’re all just living in it.

As it turns out, today is both the birthdays of Bruce Wayne the character AND David Mazouz, the actor who plays Bruce Wayne on Gotham. How’s that for a coincidence?

Happy Birthday to both!

What This Company Did With Its Employees Is Beyond Awesome. Can I Do This Too?

Nexen is a Canadian energy company based in Calgary. If that sounds to you like the most boring place in the entire world to work, you’d be wrong. How is that possible?

Well, would a boring company have the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of people dressed as Batman? I didn’t think so. Not only did the Nexen company break one of the coolest World Records, they doubled it. With their 542 employees, they made a gathering of 250 people dressed as Batman seem like child’s play. Take a look at this crowning achievement in Canadian energy history!  

A Guinness World Record official tallies the employees.

That’s a lot of people dressed as Batman.

Why so interested in ruining your company’s chances at getting a world record?

Looks like that one Joker was no match for 542 people dressed as Batman.

Congratulations, Nexen!

(via Elite Daily)

Talk about a great day at the office. They may not be the heroes the Guinness Book of World Records deserves, but they’re the ones they needed. Keep on having fun at work, Nexen, and please keep providing the people of Canada with energy.

Reality Television 2008 Top Ten in Entertainment

1. Celtics winning 2008 NBA Finals

The Celtics pulled it together after a disastrous 2007 by winning their 17th NBA Title!  Most key in this is that their last title was in 1986, 22 long years ago!  The disaster of the prior season also sweetened the victory after the Celtics had an 18 game losing streak and posted a horrific record of 24 wins and 58 losses in their prior season.

phelps2. Michael Phelps and the 2008 Beijing Olympics

Michael Phelps won 8 Gold Medals in the Olympics and now has to world record for most Gold Medals.  Usain Bolt destroyed all comers!  And despite obvious cheating by the Chinese women’s gymnastics team, the American Team including Shawn Johnson and Nastia Liukin took the most medals.  A disastrous pair of miscues by Alicia Sacramone led to a loss in the overall, but this team was possibly the best in US history.

3. Tina Fey!

We hope Tina sent Sarah Palin a huge Thank You card for providing her the perfect role to play on Saturday Night Live.  Tina didn’t even have to write the script, she pretty much used Sarah’s dialogue verbatim and had people in hysterics.

4. Batman, The Dark Knight

heathledger_joker

There have been many attempts to market the Batman story, but this latest series has the world captivated.  The difference a realistic feel to the characters and an actual fear of the villains.  Heath Ledger death accentuated his role as the Joker, which demonstrated that even in a comic book role, Heath was a blockbuster star.

5. Iron Man

While we did not want to have two movies in the top 10, we could not find any way to eliminate this gargantuan effort by Marvel.  Robert Downey Junior emerged in this movie to remind us of his diversity and wit despite a somewhat questionable past.  In fact, Robert’s bad boy antics enhanced his appeal in this leading role.

6. Barack Obama Victory Speech (Yes We Can!)

Obama won in grand style and gave an inspiring speech to America.  Almost every American heard this speech and even those that did not vote for Obama were moved.

7. David Cook Wins American Idol

Despite the judges insinuations to the contrary the week before, David Cook won American Idol easily with his unique approach to Rock.  This performance demonstrates an amazing ability to resurrect a performance of old and make it new and fresh.

8. Leona Lewis Bleeding Love Top Selling Hit of 2008

Leona was selected Billboard’s top new artist of 2008. She topped off 2008 with the number one selling single, Bleeding Love.

9. Mercy (Katee and Twitch)

We had to include this performance because it is the most striking dance performance we have seen.  The hypnotic music of Duffy, singing the classic “Mercy”  with a dance choreographed by Emmy Award Winner Mia Michaels places this solidly in the top 10 entertainment moments of 2008 and put Twitch on the map.

wii10. Wii

The Wii was available in 2007, but it took hold in 2008 to become the leading gaming system.  As people slowly forgot about the XBOX and Sony Playstation, they were getting in line to pay retail for this gaming wonder that demonstrated Nintendo is no pushover.
