I just watched Watchmen (in screwy-vision, courtesyof my busticated puter) which was ok-ish but boring-ish and ultimately unfulfilling. However, the single scene where the big groovy twirling thing on Mars is behind the blue man reminded me of my Future of Virtual Reality machinima. It's funny how certain things seem to echo - no, I'd never seen any trailers or anything. The machinima future man (my alt Oz) is only blue because I had a (partial) skin I'd been playing around with and made blue - I used it on him as it was kicking around when I wanted something odd-looking.
A billion years ago I missed a chance to see Satyagraha in Seattle, and it remains an opera I've never seen.
