Rorshach Has A Journal Online

Solace in Cinema points out that the Watchmen's Rorschach has a journal up, with the old highlighted encoded message trick:

As nerdy as it is, I love things like this, tiny little pieces of what’s to come. The site isn’t even providing any news to do with the film, but it’s enough to get the fanboys talking, and I guess that’s the beginning of what marketing people call ‘ground swell’

The current message when directly translated reads:


A partial quote from the book followed by what has been revealed to be google map co-ordinates:

from geekanerd:

these numbers are in fact co-ordinates that lead to a location on 7th Ave ad 40th street, NYC. Although I originally speculated they were pointing to Midtown Comics, Geekanerd’s super-secret contact at Midtown (who also happens to be a shadowy figure behind Pop Culture Shock) said that the co-ordinates are more likely referring to the location of The Gunga Diner, a restaurant Rorschach visits in Chapter 5, page 11. On that page, Rorschach’s narration reads: “On fortieth and seventh, saw Dreiberg and Juspeczyk leaving diner. They didn’t know me. An affair perhaps?”
