Friends have invited me to go see the Pet Shop Boys in Boston on November 9 at the Orpheum. I would love to go, but I am old and I have an early flight the next morning. The show begins at 7:30 and I can't find anything about an opening act. I haven't been to a show in maybe a decade - my memories are of everything starting late and ending later (enshrouded in cigarette smoke), but they're getting old, too, right? Has anyone seen them play lately? How likely am I to get home before midnight?
Can you identify for me, if it even exists, a cartoon (perhaps Bugs Bunny or other Hanna-Barbera) where some character averts disaster by dismanting and rebuilding the train track in front of a moving train? Perhaps a villain had previously done the same in order to move the train for some reason.
Is the full archive of the Wiretap podcast available to download anywhere besides through iTunes? I want to be able to download/listen with Android phone, but all of my basic Googling points to iTunes. Can this be right? thank you.
Please recommend me your favourite recent-ish metal albums in the following categories: (1) stoner doom; (2) psychedelic black metal; (3) psychedelic doom/sludge/desert rock. Examples inside. [more inside]
Please give me the words with which to speak with a screen printer in order to get what I'm looking for. [more inside]
There was an online series of short videos from VH1 parodying home shopping TV from around 2006-2007 called "Home Purchasing Club". Does anyone know if there is any way to view or purchase these, or are they lost to the sands of time and the vagaries of digital culture? [more inside]
I'm trying to get a music project started in a city I haven't lived in that long, where I don't have a huge network. How do I draw an audience in the early stages? [more inside]
I would like to know more Celtic myths - what are the best books to start with? I'm looking both for accurate retellings that might be more accessible to a newbie and good translations of primary sources. Thank you!
Taking a wild swing: I'm trying to locate a book I had as a kid, likely published in the US somewhere between 1977 - 1984 or so, that featured instructions on how to mount & hide a 110 camera in a hardcover book. [more inside]
Looking for help with the optics in my from-scratch overhead projector! [more inside]
I'm looking for podcasts that will either a) teach me stuff that feels essential, or b) exercise my brain. Most "educational" podcasts feel more like entertainment than education to me - Radiolab and TED talks, for example, feel like they lack that essential element. Any recommendations?
I'm trying to find a mashup I downloaded years ago. It included "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz and "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, as well as several other songs, but it did not include "Don't Worry Be Happy" by Bobby McFerrin, or at least I don't think it did. (I found a mashup of those three songs, and it's not what I remember.) I recall reading that the DJ who created it wanted to make a pleasant, happy mashup that his grandmother would enjoy. Can you help?
I was recently, late at night, in a hotel watching random TV in a language I couldn't understand. Can you id the show for me? [more inside]
Read in the early 80s: Some number of children are visiting (living in?) a place (on the coast?) and look for pirate treasure. There is a place (cave?) with lots of little mud balls. At the end of the book, they realize that the pirates have hidden their gems (emeralds?) by encasing each one in a little ball of mud. That's all I can remember. Help, please? Thanks!
Whenever I listen to songs referencing relationships and attraction, either the lyrics are always referring to a generic "you" ("I love you, you're so sexy...") or they are explicitly hetero ("Girl, I want to be your man..."). I was wondering if you could recommend me songs that are hella gay. I don't mean the musician is queer (though obviously they probably will be), I mean the lyrics specifically have some non-hetero references. [more inside]
Help me ID a song from E04 of HBO's high maintenance (link to mp3 below) https://soundcloud.com/user-389686736/high-maintenance-clip-s04-1908m Shazam isn't helping and it's not listed on any of the websites that normally document this stuff.
Want to identify a book I loved as a kid in the 50's. I think it involved 2 kids, a boy and a girl, who spent some time on ranches in Montana and New Mexico. There were lots of illustrations of horse tack and cowboy gear. I think it may have been about 9"x12". That is really all I can remember. If you can think of anything even close, I will happily explore all suggestions,
I'm trying to find a picture book that I read as a child (1980's; I'm not sure how old the book was at that time). All I remember is that it was about a girl named, I think, Arabella, who ventured into a huge Victorian mansion with convoluted passageways and got lost. Can anyone help me figure out what this book was?
My sister and I were desperately trying to remember the name and author of a book we read as children in the 60s. I don't have many details, and of course my memories of the book may be distorted by time. [more inside]
I'm obsessed with this Icelandic Hymn being played in a train station. Help me find more music like this. [more inside]
