Now that I’ve updated my Facebook cover image, computer desktop, and phone lock screen, I can tell you: There’s a teaser trailer out for the final movie in the new Star Wars trilogy, released today at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago. Aside from the teaser, we also got the title: The Rise Of Skywalker. It’s a teaser as opposed to a “full” trailer, so there isn’t a lot to it plotwise. We get some shots of characters, some shots of locations, and not a lick of context. I’ve only watched it about 20 times though, maybe in another viewing or two I’ll pick up something I wasn’t seeing before.
In Las Vegas, the fountain in front of Bellagio has been a landmark since the hotel opened in 1998. Through the years there have been various “shows” with the water set to music, from Andrea Bocelli to Lady Gaga. In honor of the final season of Game of Thrones, there’s a new presentation which includes music from the show, some images projected on the water, and for the first time, fire. If you like the video below, you can check out the Behind the Scenes videos posted by MGM Resorts on their YouTube channel. So far they have posted part one and part two out of four.

We aren’t posting any April Fool’s Day stories, but I had to highlight one of the more amusing attempts made, as it was near my native land. As of this morning, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office has announced a new division, the Hot Air High Altitude Team, which includes a new hot air balloon. There’s a whole press release to read which hits all the right notes and makes it very clear at the end that they are in fact joking. (When you live in Portland, hot air balloon police don’t sound all that odd, so it’s good they were very clear about the announcement.)

It’s hard to imagine Game of Thrones without Daenerys Targaryen, specifically as portrayed by actress Emilia Clarke. Only now are we finding out how close that came to being reality. Ms. Clarke sat down with The New Yorker for a Personal History article about how she had not one, but two aneurysms and had to have surgery for each one. She also shares a bit of how she officially became involved with this indie little HBO program and the charity she helped found to assist others in the same situation. It’s a fascinating read for the peek into her head, literally and figuratively.
