"I Wish All the Scum of the Earth Had One Throat..."

With Watchmen being released in just a few days, we are being inundated by all things Watchmen. And I love it!

The latest "sah-WEET" promotion for the movie is an interactive web site called 6 Minutes to Midnight.

You type in your name and Rorschach leads through a through a series of... well... Rorschach inkblot tests.

Enter the right answer and you open up a series of clips and images from the film. The wrong answer and Rorschach chastises you. He just said to me...

"Your mind is like a refrigerator.
Door closed. Little light off."


It was like Christian Bale asking me, "What don't you fucking understand?!?" It felt so good!

P.S. If anyone hasn't read Watchmen and is afraid they might be lost when watching the movie, io9 has created a really great spoiler-free overview with everything you need to know. Check it out.

I'm not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing..but I grew up when comics were really the big thing..more than they are now..and I may have been the only kid in the school that didn't read them..I thought they were totally stupid..My daddy asked me once if I wanted a comic book and I said no..I want a real book..and he bought me little women...my dad rocked..

For once, I know the answer, Prospero. The symbol on Dr. Manhattan's forehead is the alchemical symbol for the sun, or Sol.

Cannot WAIT for this movie.
Collected all the comics, one by one, as a kid in Wyoming back in 1986. Changed my life.

Actually Green Lantern, it's supposed to be a hydrogen atom: one electron revolving around one nucleus. Dr. Manhattan draws it on his own forehead at one point in the book.

And I too, along with all the others, can't wait to see it. I've a group lined up for Friday evenin!

WHOO-HOO!

HUGS...
