why I wear a 'watchmen' pin

Post  thanatos on Mon May 10, 2010 11:23 pm

somebody asked me why I wore a 'Watchmen' pin on my outift.

first- to me it's the comedian pin. Watchmen pins are the doomsday clock if I'm not mistaken. mine is a replica of the one from the comic and the movie worn by the comedian.

the comedian was a parody on the society he saw around him. he saw the parody of life and became what he was.
I know that I am not death himself. (herself?) if anything I am the opposite of death by dispencing life when I can. unlike the secretive figure of death, and even though I wear a mask, I am not hidden and unseen in much of what I do.
so, like the comedian being the parody of life, I am the parody of death.

I know some of you will get this.
for those of you who don't,

yeah, I'm a fanboy. Smile

All of us who actually understand the material and heard of it before the movie consider it the comedian pin, but it has almost became a logo for watchmen now. I blame the movie. If you type watchmen pin in on google the clock is no where to be seen. (I stopped after 3 pages).

Completely understand where your coming from though..

I mentioned on Heroes Network that I watched Watchmen for the first time the other day, I forgot to mention something though, something I found strange, see in the sex scene with Lori and Nite Owl, they had the song Hallelujah playing in the background, since when does a song like that get played in a sex scene lol, though it was a good film, a bit weird that the comedian turned out top be Lori's dad

That scene was meant to be taken as kind of a joke. I swear I heard that in an interview or special feature someplace.

He writes poetry? I have some of his music, but wasn't aware of that.
