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]
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]
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?
Which episode of House of Cards featured the democrats hiding in their offices so Republicans would leave and they could quickly appear and win a vote? [more inside]
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]
I'd like to add a white logo/slogan to a standard nylon camping tent. What's the best way to achieve this? [more inside]
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]
Sometimes you don't get paid at the beginning, is that okay? [more inside]
Help me identify a TV comedy about a regular dude who's dating a famous woman. [more inside]
My fiancé and I like to watch television together, but our schedules are unusually busy this summer, so our usual 45 minutes shows aren't cutting it. Any recommendations for excellent 21-30 minute programs? [more inside]
I am looking for the journalists that are experts in what they write about. [more inside]
Are there any blogs or tumblrs that are a collection of the really beautiful shots that Game of Thrones does? [more inside]
Is there a Kabuki or Noh theatrical performance that features a funeral of a young person?
Future Mr. Fallbala and I are getting married in September. We started looking at wedding rings and are wondering about materials, design and durability. [more inside]
Is a depressing but good book a bad birthday present? [more inside]
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.
Found plenty of mash-ups, but not the original scene
Can anyone offer insight into the way the market works for videos games? Half-Life remains without a third sequel eight years after it's last release. Portal remains without a sequel four or five years after its release. Aren't these GUARANTEED money-makers? [more inside]
I'm trying to remember a song I listened to many times years ago - it had a great spoken word part at the beginning of a woman talking about how we use wheels and doors for their emptiness - very similar to the Tao Te Ching chapter 11: http://earlywomenmasters.net/tao/ch_11.html [more inside]
