As just about everyone involved with the recording has made clear time and time again, Dark Side of the Moon was never intended to sync up with the 1939 musical The Wizard of Oz—and 1973 studio technology would have made syncing the two nearly impossible to pull off even if Pink Floyd had wanted to. Because Dark Side of the Moon is filled with so many open-ended lyrics and fleeting sounds, it’s easy to see why fans have volunteered the album as the film’s unofficial second soundtrack, but the truth is you can run the album during just about any film—or TV show, sports game, political debate; anything, really—and it’s bound to seemingly sync up at some point. Tonight at dusk, Discovery World offers a free outside screening of The Wizard of Oz with its stoner-approved soundtrack, following a 6 p.m. fish fry. The promoters have made the following trailer for the event:


The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
