Directed by Richard Franklin (Psycho II, F/X2) from a screenplay by Everett De Roche (Razorback), 1981’s Road Games is anxiety in motion. An amalgam of Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window and Steven Spielberg’s Duel, the Australian horror-thriller is now available on Blu-ray from Scream Factory.
Here’s an awesome little a capella summary of string theory sung in many, many parts to the tune of Queen‘s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” It was compiled at McGill University by Canadian physics student Timothy Blaise, who recently completed his Master’s Degree.
If Queen’s Brian May (Ph.D, Astrophysics, Imperial College London, 2007) does not approve of this, there is something physically wrong with the Universe.
Metal Hammer in the UK reported today that the rock group Queen is going to have a special performance commemorating the tenth anniversary of the musical We Will Rock You, which is based on the quartet, and as an added “bonus”, will have a holographic image of their late singer Freddie Mercury, accompanying them.
Guitarist and co-founder of the group Brian May confirmed the news to BBC Television in England, telling them that “It’s a little unfortunate that they did that thing with Tupac as we’ve been trying to make Freddie appear on the stage for quite a while.” May was referring to the guest “appearance” made by a Tupac Shakur hologram at the Coachella Festival, held here in America last month. May also went on to state that the Mercury hologram would not sport the same technology used to bring Tupac to eerie life on stage, but Mercury’s effect would be achieved as an “optical illusion of sorts.”
