Disney x Star Wars = Star Wars Land?


On Christmas morning, Disney shared a behind-the-scenes update on Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the massive 14-acre new Star Wars-themed land opening in Disney’s Hollywood Studios next year. But if you were too busy to sit through the entire show for your sneak peek, Disney has now shared the video online.

The video features brief commentary from some key figures responsible for bringing Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to life. “It will be jaw-dropping and incredibly emotional to walk into the land for the first time,” promises Carrie Beck, VP of Lucasfilm Story Group. “To actually be standing there amongst the buildings, amongst the ships, and have this feeling that it is all real. That it has been brought to life. And it is right there in front of you – it’s overwhelming.”

The behind-the-scenes video also features more details and updated footage from Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, the two attractions that will be featured in Galaxy’s Edge. While we’ve known for a while now that Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run will put guests in the cockpit of the fastest ship in the galaxy, the Rise of the Resistance ride has been a little more mysterious. The video finally sheds light on what park guests can expect from “the most epic attraction” Disney has ever built.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald (Official Trailer).


With Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald set to focus on the rivalry between Albus Dumbledore and the villainous magician the sequel is named after, we don’t really know what role Eddie Redmayne’s magizoologist will end up playing in the J.K. Rowling penned release. However, this trailer changes that by making it clear he’ll actually be working as a proxy of sorts for his teacher.  There’s not a huge amount of Johnny Depp in the teaser (probably because a lot of fans have campaigned for him to be removed from the project after claims made by his ex-wife Amber Heard) but we do get a glimpse of his villain and a better idea of what he has planned for the Wizarding World.

Everybody sees the world in a different way, some people can find the beauty in anything and anywhere. With only having one good eye people must have thought that he had a disadvantage. Little did they know that his view of the world would be spectacular to follow.

I grew up blind in one eye and this might have changed the way I view the world. I don’t know. It’s hard to be objective about the way one’s brain was wired. My background is in computer science and math, so I bring an algorithm-like process to capturing the scene in such a way that it evokes memories in a palpable manner. Whatever that means. My promise to you: One New Photo Every Day. Probably.

Park And Slide :300 Foot Long Slip-N-Slide


Park-and-Slide

Creating a 300-foot water slide down the middle of a public road sounds like a very American thing to do, but nope. Park and Slide is a crowdfunding project created by artist Luke Jerram that will turn Park Street in Bristol, England, into the coolest city in the world. That’s the goal at least; to shut down the street for a day, build the slide out of plastic sheeting and hay-bales, and open it up to the public—for free. The hills in this southwest England town are plentiful (they’ve been used for soapbox derbies before), so there should be no problem generating speed.

The world faces critical food shortages in the near future as demand for meet is expected to increase by more than two-thirds, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Cultured Beef represents the crucial first step in finding a sustainable alternative to meat production. This technology has been pioneered by Dr. Mark Post of Maastricht University. The world’s first cultured beef burger was cooked and tasted in London as proof of concept that this revolution in food science is possible.
