Terry Pratchett's "Troll Bridge" Trailer

I've waited all my life to see some of Terry Pratchett's Discworld series hit the big screen.    For those who don't know it,   Discworld is kind of a Monty Python-esque take on your typical "swords and sorcery" fantasy universe.   It has spanned dozens of books ranging from stories about wizards to stories about private detectives.

In 2011, there was a Kickstarter to put together a short film based on one of Pratchett's Discworld fables.   Recently the trailer for the film finally made it's way out.    And it looks like that signature Pratchett humor has made the transition well.

I can still hope to see a big budget version of a Discworld story one day,  but for now this is absolutely wonderful to see.

Literal Sinkhole Opens on White House Grounds

Apparently a literal sinkhole has opened up on the White House grounds and is growing.   A similar sinkhole opened near Mar-a-Lago last year.     Perhaps the universe is trying to send a message?

From Quartz:

And as of this past weekend, a sinkhole has been growing on the north lawn, Voice of America reporter Steve Herman observed, just near the press briefing room...
“It was noticeably bigger between Sunday and Monday,” Herman said. “It’s more than a foot long right now,” he said. A second sinkhole has opened up right next to it, he said.

The Imperial March in a Major Key is crazy!

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a huge music fan.   Also I am a bit of an amateur music theory nerd.    That being said,  I always tend to love artists who take super happy major key songs and turn them dark and depressing by transposing them into a minor key.

Surprisingly, I haven't seen much of the reverse.   And today I really wonder why that is,  because this is HYSTERICAL.   Laztozia on Soundcloud has transposed the ultimate villain theme "The Imperial March" from Star Wars into a major key.     This has had the effect of turning it from a foreboding march of evil into something almost.. Olympic-esque?   You just have to check it out.  Take a listen below, and please check out the rest of Laztozia's work.   It's fantastic.   I really enjoyed the X-Files one as well.
