“Hey Bob, have you seen our new media room?”

Batcave Home Theater

Batcave Home Theater

In the words of the infamous Mark Douglass, “we all make choices.” And let me disclaim, I am not perfect: I wrestle with my own greed and consumption-driven self just as anyone else. But a batcave media room? Come on. You could feed an entire village for the price of this room. 

This morning Kristen and I went to the gym, and while overcoming some relentless “hill” on the elliptical, I watched “My Sweet 16” on MTV. That’s right. I was the near 30 year old watching these former-Brittney-Spears wannabes and wealthy American teeny-bopper-offspring celebrate their 16th birthday with easily 10-15 times the budget of my wedding. Today, the girl got a brand new Range Rover. I’m speechless.
