Every Friday, Stuff We Missed (formerly Off The Record, which is now the name of our print-only Colectivo publication) looks to other Milwaukee publications (and beyond) for, well, stuff we missed throughout the week.

• Earlier this week, while the rest of us were sitting in chairs and staring at screens, crews from C.D. Smith Construction successfully moved a brick wall that clocked in at 1.2 million pounds, 86 feet tall, and 100 feet long in downtown Milwaukee. Why? It was part of the $89 million transformation of the old Grand Warner Theatre into the new home for the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. In order to accommodate a larger stage for the MSO, the wall (built in 1931) was slowly moved approximately 35 feet to the east.

The whole process took about six hours, but you can watch it in 30 seconds. Twitch your finger, click, and enjoy. [Urban Milwaukee]
