Irish song filter. Asked this a couple years back ... hoping it may ring a new bell. Looking for a sad song heard in Boston, 94-95. Two boys growing up together, their fathers missing, build a snowman. Anybody?

I vaguely remember a scene from a Bruce Lee or Sonny Chiba movie in which a grieving (or shamed?) mother tries to kill herself and children. She ties them all together and to a weight and then in water they go... What was that movie?

Would you happen to know of any articles originally written Mandarin about Bolaño's popularity in China? Or Latin American literature's popularity in China in general?

I have the chance to interview somebody higher up at the European division of a major record label starting with "S", for my blog. Which would be great, except I'm not very knowledgable about the whole market (because REASONS). What should I be asking this person that people who are knowledgable (and somewhat critical) might be interested in?

I recently received a Arirang AR-36K karaoke machine. I have hooked it up to my TV and receiver, which has ports only for stereo sound from this input. It has two ports on the front for microphones, which I've plugged in; however, the sound input from the mics isn't mixed into the sound output. I know that the input is actually happening
, because the on-screen display reacts to my (terrible) singing, but it just doesn't get mixed -- and the menu option to turn up the microphone volume simply doesn't work (it gives the "command not allowed" icon whenever I press any
button on the requisite screen). The hardware microphone volume knobs seem to have no effect, either. Any ideas?

I'm looking for a good, introductory level book on choreography. I've taken several dance classes informally but have never formally studied dance or any performance art at the post secondary level so something aimed at a popular audience or 100-level textbook would be ideal. Any recommendations, hivemind?

Why would our Reverb Nation ranking drop a very lot in a very short amount of time? How does it work in general? What can I use to ensure our ranking best reflects our fan count or fan base on other sites - That's sort of the purpose of the band equity, I think, which - could someone explain it to me? What does it value? [more inside]

A friend asked me to help her find a book she enjoyed about 10 years ago. This what she remembers: man flies home to southern US to visit family; his father picks him up at airport; they get into a bad car accident; they wake up in a house where a woman takes care of them; she has a dog; she and dog turn out to be ghosts or spirits or something.

I've had recurring severe pain in my upper back and neck for the last four years. I don't know what to do next. Several years ago my brother saw a physiotherapist-type dude (other side of the country sadly or I'd be beating his door down) who cured his crippling shoulder pain. Do you know of someone in North London who can do this for me? [more inside]

In March we are going to be driving between Tamarindo and Manuel Antonio via 34 along the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Google Maps says it's a four hour drive. We would like to break up the drive by stopping for a night somewhere enroute. We are renting houses on the beach at either end so seashore is not a priority. Ideally we'd like some kind of jungle/bamboo/eco hotel. Lots of flora and fauna. [more inside]
