Watch this child’s life change as he sees Superman fly for the very first time

Seeing Superman fly for the very first time was something that inspired me to fantasize and daydream about the impossible, to imagine and conceptualize possibilities that were otherwise beyond my comprehension. Through the confused and often-frightened mind of a young preschooler, Superman made me feel like I could become a great person.

I know that I’m not alone. I know there are thousands of others out there like me- maybe it wasn’t Superman. Maybe it was Wonder Woman or Peter Pan. Or perhaps it was Sailor Moon or Goku. A child’s exposure to fictional super-powered figure that stands for justice and cares for the people of the world is a special moment, one that peels back the roof of a child’s limitation. A single, seemingly insignificant moment that has the potential to snowball into anything from becoming a teacher, an artist or just providing emotional support to those who are in need.

In this video, you’re watching that very moment happen for the first time. We are seeing this child’s world change before him. Notice his mystified eyes, watch him pump his fists up in the air. It’s an amazing thing to see.

Maybe I’m just a geek with a big imagination but I really believe that every child wants to become a Superman.

Some of them eventually will.

Chino’s Crosses will Depeche your Mode


After many months of enthusiastic peer pressure,  I have finally taken the plunge into Crosses (usually shown as †††).  As a Deftones fan, and trust me I’ll be doing a piece on them too, I really should know better than to pass up any project that involves legendary frontman Chino Moreno.

Crosses is a band that Chino started up with childhood friend Shaun Lopez (Far) and Chuck Doom. The project had been split between two EPs over the past couple of years before Chino’s self-proclaimed “witch house” project was finally compiled into a full album with all new songs and released earlier this month.

The overall feel can best be described as a dark-yet-bubbly ode to dream pop and 80’s new-wave.  One of the more prevalent tracks on the album, “The Epilogue”, tempts the listener with a promising Robert Smith-esque build up before plunging into a punchy hook that made me yearn for the earlier days of Head Automatica.  A later, newer track “Bitches Brew”, crawls and climbs up a mountain of angst before soaring off into a crooning electrical storm of a chorus that sounds like it should be on the soundtrack for a new Spawn movie.

Finally, we have my personal favorite track, “Telepathy”.  I won’t even bother to analyze it. Plug in those headphones and tell me you aren’t overcome by a warm rush of Depeche Mode nostalgia when those horn synths pour in.
