Bell, yes. But Bellringer?

This is a quickie. I am working on an audio piece about Salvation Army bell ringers and I make reference to "It's a Wonderful Life." I know there is a bell at the end when Clarence the Angel gets his wings. But is there a bell ringer on the streets of Bedford Falls (or Pottersville) elsewhere in the move?

Music for cleansing, venting, and catharsis in under an hour

It’s Thanksgiving, and that means drama and tension. It also means that I don’t get much alone time to vent said drama and tension. What is some good music that I can listen to in between ten minutes (time for stage setting) and an hour (private time before sleep) that will cathartically purge all of my tension? Could be sad, could be relaxing, could be angry, but after hearing it I want to feel completely wrung out and serene. Thanks!

Help Me Help The Gits Stream Video of their reunion concert

On Friday, Dec. 4, The Gits are reuniting for a show. I go way back with their drummer, and he has pointed out to me that they really do not have anything set up by way of media, like perhaps a live stream. Who here has suggestions on how to fix this, and fast? This is really kind of a special event, if you know who the Gits were, you would perforce agree

Looking for the name of a double CD from the early 90s.

I believe the cover had an illustration of a kid on a tricycle. And it was an independent breakout, double CD, by a guy who I believe was a carpenter or machine worker. It was singer/songwriter or style. It’s haunting me that I can’t remember.

More like Miyazaki.

I'm looking for films (or books) like Miyazaki's work: full of emotion, where the world is literally wonderful and every new street or path could contain something magical, touching, and unusual. Ideally more Spirited Away than Princess Mononoke, but either mood works. I'm already a big fan of magical realism novels and have Earthsea & Moebius on my to-read list.

Do you remember this three person acting troupe in the Bay Area, c 2006?

Super vagueness coming up but would be so worth it if anyone knew the answer. About 10(?) years ago, my husband took me to see a production of Shakespeare's Richard III, in Oakland. The troupe - or possibly just the way was written? - had only 3 actors, who did all the different characters. The actor who played Richard was a black man. [more inside]
