I'm looking for a reputable source for high-quality posters. Is there a "best source" online for these types of things? [more inside]
It looks kind of like a human body, but wrong. Any description of what it is and/or how it was made would be welcome. Thanks!
There are two focused book collections that I’d like to sell, preferably as lots. I’d like one to go to an academic institution. I’m indifferent to the destination of the other. I’ve never brokered deals like these before. How do I proceed? Many details and my current ideas inside. [more inside]
Friends are getting married and have asked me to select a reading for the wedding. What are some good readings for weddings? (This will not be a religious wedding.) [more inside]
7 months ago I bought a Sony A7II DLSR camera. Though I knew there was a steep learning curve going in, I still haven't mastered the thing. I need some resources (hopefully a class) that will allow me to learn how to take non-grainy pics with this camera. [more inside]
I am looking for some great looking rocket posters for a child's bedroom. Fictional, real, whatever. Lots of little rockets, one big rocket, whatever you think looks great.
Can I view an English language version of Ant-Man at a theatre in Tokyo this week? Japanese subtitles not a problem of course.
I am looking for journalistic organizations that, (1) provide statistical number crunching and (2) legal interpretation to help to reporters working on complex stories. Whenever I've had an ethical question, I sought the help of Poynter, but on this current project, I need more specific help. Are there non profit journalistic entities whose mission is to help freelance reporters and/or their organizations with their legal and quantitative research?
Doing a design project for a record store and am looking for iconic album covers that only feature text? For instance, Live at Leeds, Masters of Reality, or Ornette! would all be good examples. Looking for ones where if someone were to substitute other words, what was being referenced would be obvious. Thanks!
Can anyone recognise a particular statue that's part of the background of a Eurovision performance? [more inside]
I stumbled upon a photographer's website a few years ago who did amazing work. I don't remember who he is anymore. Help me find him. [more inside]
I recently received birthday cash, and I would like a sturdy drafting table. I have researched drafting tables, and companies like Studio Designs, Alvin, and Mayline pop up. Despite the many options present on sites like Amazon, I haven't found information reliable enough to whittle down to the best table for the space. Would anyone be willing to recommend a table that fits the specifications below, based on experience? Are there any tables too good to not recommend, regardless of space or cost? [more inside]
I am looking for classical music that is fast moving and upbeat. The type that is really great for study, in that kinda wakes you up and is mood lifting. I like violin and cello. I like this, but fast paced, Henry Purcell: The Golden Sonata; Voices of Music
What books hold up so well to re-reading that it makes you suspect they were engineered that way? Are there examples of books that seem to be MUCH better on second reading? What kind of things did the author do to achieve that?
Asking for a friend: Any leads on what this book might be? "Two girls become friends. Girl #1 realizes she's gay and gets a girlfriend, through which girl #2 realizes she's in love with girl #1. They lose touch until years later, when they are both grown. One plays the flute and rides horses, one is a famous sculptor. They fall in love and start living together. At some point, aliens are introduced and give folks on earth pills that allow them to achieve immortality for as long as they are taken."
I loved artpoints.net/calendar, but apparently they've shut down as of June 14th. Is there another impartial aggregator of art exhibition calls? I can search callforentry.org or other commercial sites but they only list opportunities run through their own service. I liked that artpoints.net/calendar was a one-stop shop that listed regionally, by date, with call restrictions and details.
I am obsessed with extreme nature - tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes, harsh environments (think Mt. Everest or deep oceans), extreme weather - basically anything about how big and scary and unpredictable the earth is. I want to get my hands on more articles, books, and documentaries (preferably available online) to quench my appetite for more. [more inside]
I am reasonably certain that at some point in the last 10-15 years, I saw a very short clip of someone talking about the Blondie disco song Rapture making rap safe for America: something something about all it took was a white girl from Jersey. [more inside]
I've read that the art of film making was developed with white skin in mind. Are there articles or books that describe this bias in more detail? I remember reading somewhere that The Wire, having to film many scenes featuring only black people, developed techniques to film black skin more effectively. Is that true? Thank you.
