Looking for the name of a double CD from the early 90s.

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 style. It’s haunting me that I can’t remember.

More like Miyazaki.

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.

Do you remember this three person acting troupe in the Bay Area, c 2006?

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]

a clip from a talk show of a punk guy talking about religion? post rock

I remember it was a talk show from the 90s, probably. And this guy, maybe famous, was talking/rambling about religion and the universe. I think I came across it because of a clip in a Godspeed You! Black Emperor song, or maybe A Silver Mt. Zion. [more inside]

The only catch is, I'm still learning a lot and I don't know how to describe what I want my focus to be in my statement of purpose application essay. Help me not sound like a crazy fan girl begging UCLA to let me in. Please? Details inside. [more inside]

I want to read books and watch movies about Alternate Histories.

With The Man in the High Castle hitting Amazon Prime today, it got me thinking about other alternate histories that I have yet to read about or watch. Obviously this lends itself to dystopian lit, but I was wondering if there's more obscure things out there besides the mainstream/popular things like Inglorious Basterds. My favorites are sci-fi and horror, but I'm open to just about anything and will pretty much give everything a shot if it's highly recommended. Hope me, MeFites!

Short film or TV episode with a winter horror theme

A campus horror movie group I attend has asked me to pick something short to open their December screening. We're after something with a wintry plot. Christmas horror suggestions are welcome too. A friend is screening a 90 minute movie after me, so the longest I could get away with is a 44 minute TV episode. [more inside]
