You're Welcome

Nearly every morning, I make Kindra a mug of coffee to take on the drive to work. The other day, she told me that I'd made her the best cup of coffee she'd ever had.

It was the Starbucks she'd brought home the night before.

Thanks, Sweetie.

How'd They Do That?

Ever wonder how they draw that yellow line across the football field marking the first down? This is why productions are such costly processes:

Think about it. That’s a lot of machines and people needed to slap that yellow line down. And on top of that, a bunch of engineers had to sit around for what I’m sure was quite some time to figure out how to merge all the available technology together to paint a line on the television screen telling you how far your team has to go to get the first down. That’s nuts.

Turning Japanese

The Watchmen Japanese trailer:

I’m thinking they showed more big-picture scenes as opposed to the straight action of the American trailers because a) the Japanese audience is more about story than spectacle and b) not as many Japanese know what Watchmen is about.

I’m hoping that there isn’t a delay in the March 9 release date because of the rights issues between Warner Bros. and Fox.
