News Roundup

Gawker Media: With the bankruptcy that stemed from the Hulk Hogan sex tape. Univision is buying Gawker and all their blogs in a diversifying move. Univision, best known as the place for Spanish-language television also owns The Root, an African-American culture e-mag as well as has a stake in The Onion and A/V Club. It’s great that the Gawker sites will be around a bit longer and perhaps have a bit more money to do thing in case they get sued again.

Disney: It seems like Disney is now just going around and making live action adaptations of their classic movie musicals. With The Little Mermaid being just the latest in line, this time around Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alan Menken will be working on it. Apparently they will be mixing some of the classic songs from the movie and perhaps stage show with new songs. It will be adapted from The Little Mermaid by Hans Christen Anderson and hopefully we will get the actual story this time around and not just a live-action adaptation of the 1989 Disney film.

World War II: Since the end of the war there have been rumors of a hidden train full of Nazi gold. Well in Poland treasure hunters have started to dig into the tunnels and look for this hidden train. According to local legend an armored train carrying gold from what is now the Polish city of Wroclaw as the Soviet army closed in was hidden in the tunnels of a secret military complex which was never completed. It would be cool if they find something.
