Ok, I've found the scene with Ridicully and Granny Weatherwax. I like "The Trousers of Time" as a concept.

Here are some titles I'm mulling:
  • The Trousers of Time (this one is winning)
  • What if? is a stupid game.
  • I wonder what the other leg is like?
  • Trousers Have Many Legs
  • ...

Other suggestions welcome.

:D I am very pleased that michelanCello has recorded the cello part for this.

I'm just putting it together at the moment.....

Look forward to hearing the final result. Had another couple listens to it today - it's melodic, evocative, and the arrangement flows very naturally.

first impressions. sounds vaguely nautical to me. definitely sounds like a theme to a place. docks of AM possibly. though after reading some comments was picturing the scenes of Brutha traveling on the ship.

trousers of time or LnL ingeneral never occurred to me.
