The post in which I make my 1,365th Watchmen reference since OctoberThis is a kind of neat article about some insanely complicated master control room equipment for monitoring video feeds and stuff. I say "kind of neat" because I don't understand about every fifth word, so I'm erring on the side of caution. Anyway, it appears that the MLB Network has bought one of these bad boys:
Among the most recent customers of the NV8576/Kaleido-X integrated system was Major League Baseball, which installed it for its new MLB Network, slated to debut Jan. 1. The network is broadcasting out of the former MSNBC studios in Secaucus, N.J., which was undergoing a massive retrofitting at press time.
Of course, if the MLB Network hired the right kind of employee, they wouldn't need so many people to monitor all those screens.
It's OK if you don't get the reference. It's a pretty pathetic reference.

There’s no such thing as a pathetic Watchmen reference.

Nothing pathetic at all. pretty rad is more like it. though if they did hire that kind of employee i’d be pretty hesitant about joining him for a happy hour. plus whats the work place pet policy for bringing in a that albino hybrid tiger thing to work?

It doesn’t look like I’m alone in appreciating your Watchmen references, be it the 1st, the 300th, or the 1,365th such reference.

Oh Mr. Veidt.
It’s too bad it looks like the movie’s going to be unsatisfying, but I guess that’ll just make the original better?

I think you just have to accept that the movie will never be as good on screen as in your mind.
After all, should we complain that Batman in the Dark Knight doesn’t have huge hands and feet?
