We’ve all seen in movies and TV shows that when people sing a high pitch and glass or glasses break. Do you know how or why that happens though? In short, it’s not about hitting a high frequency but hitting the correct frequency for a long enough period of time. The Physics Girl YouTube channel explored how this happens and some explanations behind it using science. I love that there are awesome YouTube channels that explain things with science! One of the nice things about Physics Girl is that she uses simple analogies and explanations for most people to understand. Have you ever broken anything with your voice?
Are you excited for Avengers: Infinity War? Of course, you are, who isn’t? Well, then you know Thanos is going to be the big bad guy and has been teased since The Avengers came out in 2012. But who is Thanos? If you don’t know, or just want to brush up on your Thanos knowledge, Screen Rant has you covered. They recently published a video that explores the history of the character including how he came to be, how he was “inspired by” DC’s Darkseid, and how he’s changed over time. It’s a little over 5 minutes, so it’s not too long and gets you caught up on who the big bad will be in Infinity War. I’m sure they’ll once again change a few things to better match the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but you’ll get the gist of his history.
Do you have some fancy parties and galas to go to this year? Are you a big Harry Potter fan? Show off your pride in whichever Hogwarts house you belong to with these stylish clutches over at ThinkGeek. The clutches are styled to look like the uniforms of a Hogwarts student from each of the four houses. I love the tagline for this clutch: “For keeping your cash safe when it’s not at Gringotts.” It’s not just good for carrying money though. You can use it for your phone, eReader, makeup, and more. It comes with a 13 Inch chain drop to make carrying it a little easier and is made out of faux leather with a polyester liner. To make things better, this is an officially licensed product. It is available for Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, Gryffindor, and Slytherin, so all houses have equal representation.
Gwyneth Paltrow was recently on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Stephen Colbert dragged out a small spoiler from her in regard to Avengers: Infinity War. If you don't care about anything besides the stuff for Infinity War, that starts at the 8:43 mark. First, I was a little surprised when I first heard that she’d actually be in the film. Her character, Pepper Potts, has not been in either of the previous Avengers movies so this is a first! Some people may not have been surprised at this, but I was. Second, Paltrow was talking about how secretive everything is regarding Infinity War when Colbert does a little digging and asks if she has any powers in the film. This is due to the bigger role Pepper played in Iron Man 3 with temporary fire powers. She starts to waffle a bit but then is asked if she ever extended her hand towards anyone in a suit covered in blue ping pong balls. She answers in the affirmative which leads Colbert and many of us nerds to conclude that she does have powers of some nature in the film.
This creates a new question though, what kind of powers? At the end of Iron Man 3, Pepper undergoes the procedure to undo all of the horrible fire stuff that was done to her. Did any of that stay? I think many of us will agree that the prevailing theory is that she will don a suit similar to Iron Man’s in this upcoming fight of all fights. This wouldn’t be crazy since in the comics she does use the Rescue Armor. So, has Pepper become Rescue between films, which has been rumored due to a photo she posted on social media, or will we see the birth of Rescue during the film?
If you’re a fan of The Seven Deadly Sins, you may have noticed my lovely post talking about the release of the second season. In it, the reports said that we should’ve seen the second season earlier this month. If you’ve checked Netflix at all, you’ll notice that season 2 is not there. Apparently, the release date was for Netflix Japan which airs episodes at the same time as the local Japanese networks. So, if you are in Japan, you’ve been treated to an episode or two by now. Unfortunately, it looks like those of us in the United States will have to wait a while. ComicBook even reports that we may not see season 2 until next February based on how long it took for season one to get here. That’s in a year. Inquisitr explains the situation here:
I don’t know if I can wait too much longer for the second season. This is killing me! I hope that we don’t have to wait another year to see the continuation of the story that’s been 3 years in the making. Here’s the Japanese trailer for season 2 to keep you excited.
We recently shared a photo of Maisie Williams aka Arya Stark dressed up as Coraline. Well, it looks like the incredible Coraline decided to return the favor and dress up as Arya Stark. Laika, the studio behind the Coraline film, drew up these fun pictures of Coraline dressed as Arya Stark, but with a little Coraline flare such as the yellow coat and boots. She even has Nymeria who surprisingly has button eyes. In addition, they sent this great piece of art to Williams! I think that would be a fun crossover, Game of Coraline! An added bonus piece of art features Coraline chilling on the Iron Throne. What’s your favorite Laika movie?
YouTuber devinsupertramp is incredibly talented. I would highly recommend his videos if you want to watch parkour videos or videos of people doing crazy things. It is he after all that gave us the amazing Parkour T-Rex. This new video takes his parkour style videos and puts it in Medieval Europe. Some templar knights are trying to reclaim the Holy Grail from the evil knights and it’s pretty cool. Every time I see one of these videos it reminds me of Assassin’s Creed and that’s not a bad thing. What’s your favorite outfit for parkour? Are you a T-Rex person, a knight, or do you wear something else?

We found out about a year ago that Disney Junior was bringing the 1980’s cartoon Muppet Babies back. Well, in a recent tweet from Disney Junior, they revealed a new muppet for the show named Summer Penguin and she’s adorable.
Summer looks fantastic and fun. In a short video with EW, Tom Warburton (the Executive Producer) talks a bit about who Summer is. He outlines her as more of an outgoing creative type who likes art:
We had previously heard that the show was going to use actual puppets, but now it looks like they’ve decided to go with a 3D, cartoony animation style similar to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
Muppet Babies is set to air in March 2018.
In a recent interview with Jimmy Fallon, Jason Momoa reveals that after playing Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones, it was really hard for him to get work. He talks about how being Khal Drogo really pigeonholed him and who would want Khal Drogo in a comedy or anything like that. I personally would love to see a buddy cop film starring Momoa and Dwayne Johnson. I would also love to see Momoa in a romantic comedy. I think that would be fantastic.
Why did he have a hard time getting jobs though? Momoa says: “not a lot of people thought I spoke English.” What do people think Momoa speaks!? Dothraki?! Either way, Momoa credits Zack Snyder for casting him as Aquaman because that helped break him out of his Khal Drogo shaped pigeonhole. You can watch the entire interview below and learn that Momoa didn’t know he was going to be cast as Aquaman when Snyder called him in for the audition.
Everyone knows the iconic roar of a Wookiee. It’s a great sound that many try to imitate on a regular basis. What if you replaced the iconic roar with Pee-Wee Herman sounds? It gets hilarious! Alamo Drafthouse edited some scenes from various Star Wars movies including the Holiday Special to make the replacements. I think the best one is when they show the dinner scene from Empire Strikes Back and he’s just screaming, “AH” in a Pee-Wee Herman voice. What’s your favorite sound that Wookiees make?
