Ramblings from the Batcave...6th January 2008Posted by: Inkblot
Isn't that Bizzaro so darn cute? I've decided to make him not
do that backwards speaking thing that he's supposed to do (this is me explaining in an attempt to pre-empt potential flak from purist fanboys... :P). Personally, I found that way of talking rather confusing (and lots of times it detracted from my understanding and enjoyment of the story coz I didn't understand what he was saying... -_-').
Thus, my version of Bizzaro has the personality and mentality of a small child. I'm rather partial to this interpretation as I've always seen Bizzaro as a victim of circumstance rather than an outright supervillain; and as you will see as the story progresses, this interpretation will be a key point in both the development of the plot and the character.
Anyhoo, the (most possibly) final semester of my academic life will begin tomorrow! Woohoo! Can't wait to graduate, I tells ya.
See you guys next week!

I had to do this unprecedented update just to pimp bro Naguib's ambigram blog (go see the comments
section for the reason). For those of you familiar with Dan Brown's Angels & Demons
(which is where I first learnt about ambigrams) you know that an ambigram is a nifty way of designing the typography of a word so that it is readable both right side up and upside down. I'll show you an example.
The following animation shows an ambigram I did of my name :
Well you should really check out bro Naguib's ambigram blog at nagfa.blogspot.com
to see some designs that will totally BLOW your mind. Oh, did I mention that John Langdon knows him and holds him in high esteem?
Yes kiddies, THAT John Langdon.
So watcha waiting for? Scoot over to his site
