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
I have been looking for some time online to try and find children's books in Russian that are "progressive" with no luck. [more inside]
I am looking for book suggestions for my partner. He enjoys the historical and comical nature of Rabelais and Casanova's memoir. He also enjoys the style/ambition of Vladimir Nabokov. [more inside]
When I was very young I would check a picture book out from the library; very vivid memory and can't for the life of me find it! Probably published in the '70s, it was at my public library in California in the mid-'80s. Details inside... [more inside]

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 alt.country style. It’s haunting me that I can’t remember.
On TV's Hannibal, how would you characterize the exterior of Hannibal's house? Architecture-wise, but also history-wise? A UK friend would like to describe/discuss it in her fanfic, but is unfamiliar with US architecture/history. Images inside!: [more inside]
I'm looking for songs where the singer vocalizes part of the instruments in the song. [more inside]
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.
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]
I was in San Francisco in 1995 or 1996 (?) and saw two parts of a three-night performance by a woman who, with her voice alone, performed as more than a hundred different characters. She had written this trilogy, as well. [more inside]
I want watch how people in professional kitchens clean, prep, and execute a service. I've already seen lots TV-chefs and youtube-wannabe-tv-chefs making single dishes, but I want to see cooking at scale. Any youtube channel/film suggestions?
I'd like to watch more music videos showing dancers performing on stark, monochromatic, ultra-clean sets like those in Taylor Swift's Shake It Off so I can see what the dancers are doing. [more inside]
