judgement Posted 2004-10-15 05:16:33 by Jim Crawford
I've been debilitatingly ill for a few days now. On top of what I'm guessing are standard flu symptoms, all day in bed yesterday I had a recurring dream in which I was Dr. Manhattan and the ant-like beings surrounding me were making requests that I knew wouldn't work out, but I kept following them anyways. Alternating between that and a high fever and intense pain when swallowing; hellish.

I was probably thinking of Dr. Manhattan because I'd reread Watchmen recently, and even more recently I've been reading about 10 random pages a day. It is so good. It's what you'd expect from someone who grew up reading simplistic superhero comics once his tastes evolved past the good/evil dichotomy. And was living in the middle of the cold war nightmare, in which the nuclear apocalypse was imminent and inevitable... which really isn't very surprising, because that's pretty much the description of the guy who wrote it.

Apparently there will be a Watchmen movie in 2005. The screenwriter, David Hayter, has a spotty track record, having written both X-Men and The Scorpion King. Hard to know what to make of that. I'm hopeful.
