Playlists of Basic Beats for a Beginning Drummer

I bought a set of Roland V-drums recently and I'd like to put together some playlists that focus on basic beats I should be learning as a beginner. The idea is to have each playlist focus on a specific type of beat, starting easier and building in complexity/tempo. I'm mostly into rock music, and my goal right now is to be able to keep a solid groove - nothing fancy.

Sensual Songs

Tell me about some songs that are sensual in the way that "Take Me to Church" is, but aren't overtly, explicitly sexual the way that "Do Me!" or "Let's Get It On" are. [more inside]

How Do You Find Art by Obscure Artists?

Recently we purchased a watercolor by an artist, who we discovered was originally from Wisconsin. During the 1930s he spent time in California working as an artist before returning to Madison, Wisconsin, where he spent his final years (1940s-1970s). We really like the artist's life story and artwork and would like to find more of his paintings. But, he's very obscure, help? [more inside]

Why does the font in the Transparent credits look so familiar?

My friend recently started watching Transparent on Amazon, and she mentioned that the font used for the credits looks so familiar, like from some '80s TV show, and it's really been bugging her that she can't remember what other show it looks like. She showed me a screencap and I can't figure it out either, and now it's bugging me! Anyone know what '80s (or late '70s possibly?) TV show also used this font, or one very similar to it? Thanks in advance!

Printing and binding 500 copies of a weirdly-bound book

I want to print and distribute 500 copies of a comic-art project I've been working on, but either want to do a crazy accordion fold (40 panels, each about 5 inches wide, so a little over 8 feet long if I print on both sides) or perfectly bound with some fold-out pages inside. Does anyone know how I could get that printed and bound in two and half weeks (by April 10)? I would prefer to find a printer/binder in the Boston area, but am open to working with businesses online. Thanks!

what were these two free online books?

I've been trying for years to figure out what either of these two books were that I read online, probably between 1998-2004. Unrelated sources. One was aimed at kids and found through Bonus.com (kids activities portal, mostly to flash games, where things were hosted independently) and one was original fiction, I think unfinished, about virtual reality, which may have been linked to from Ultima Online fansites. More scraps of details inside. [more inside]

Lauren Bacall Me, Maybe?

My question is two-fold: I am looking for songs from the late 90's to now that would be good candidates for reinterprating in vintage Jazz styles from the 20's to the 40's. I am also looking for a name for this group--a portamentaou that combines the name of an entertainer from the 20's, 30's, or 40's with something from the modern era. An example would be "Lauren Bacall Me, Maybe". [more inside]

What music is this?

Most of the music in this documentary about Sviatoslav Richter is labeled, but the music starting at 1:10:49 for Stalin's death isn't. What's the composer and title? Thanks!
