I want a museum.

Where can I get a museum quality reproduction? Say I'm willing to spend a few hundred to a few thousand. The piece I'm currently lusting over is The Siren or The Green Abyss by Santorio. (You can see a picture of it here, may be NSFW). The painting is much more striking in person than the photograph shows. There are plenty of other paintings I would potentially be interested in getting reproductions of. [more inside]

Who are the Louis Armstrong's of guitar playing?

I'm looking for examples of clever guitar solos/improv that lean towards note selection rather than technical flash. More Louis Armstrong, less Joe Bonamassa. Preferably rock/indie/pop, thinking outside the pentatonic box. Who should I be listening to? [more inside]

Identify this statue with anal hornets

This statue of a naked man with some sort of hunting bird on his wrist floated by my Twitter timeline recently. It is perhaps most remarkable because the picture purports to show a hornets' nest built in, shall we say, the gluteal area. It looks like the statue is in a park, but where? And what is the subject?

TVFilter: ISO "family viewing" series

We have watched (it was a long winter) the entirety of Anne of Green Gables, Road to Avonlea, Wind at My Back, and Emily of New Moon. We (two adults, one almost 8 yr old) need a new, mildly addictive, not scary series, hopefully with a similar sort of flavour? [more inside]

O, to be in England...

I recall having seen something on TV maybe a decade or two ago in which a female character (or a male with a very high-pitched voice) was reciting the line, "O to be in England now that April's there[...]" several times with a very exaggerated/attempted British accent ("Eauuuugh to be in EEEEEEEEEEngland..."). I don't remember much more, and all my Google searches turn up is the actual poem that the line is from. I'd like to find this again; does it ring a bell to anyone? [more inside]

What's the song in this Humans trailer?

What is the song in this trailer? I usually try not to ask these questions because only a few people benefit from it but this has been stuck in my head for days. There are a few other people asking the same question by the looks of the YouTube comments.
