The Watchmen

The dude who made 300 is making the screen adaptation of the famous graphic novel The Watchmen.
The preview looks to be an exact page-for-page translation of the graphic novel. As a huge fan of Alan Moore's masterpiece, I can't tell you how excited I am to see this movie. Especially if they stay true to his vision, which it looks like they have.
Take a look at the preview.

R.I.P. Otis

R.I.P. Otis, originally uploaded by Joe_13.

Otis passed away yesterday.
We picked him up 14 years ago at the Santa Clara Humane Society. A spry 2-year-old, he was filled with energy and mischief.
He was spoiled rotten by the ATO brothers at SJSU, where he was house dog from 1994-95. He got to know students as well as faculty on his frequent visits to campus and was famous for not listening to anyone but me. He had an appetite. Boy he had an appetite. He'd eat just about anything. But his favorite food was bacon and strangely, oranges.
Otis was as rambuctious as dogs get. He maintained that energy even in his later years.
In the end, it was his body that failed him, never his spirit.

Otis. My Best Friend. I'll never forget you and the good times we've together.
