I'm trying to find a song. Maybe you can help. Won't that be exciting?
Hello, darlings! How are we all today? Growing tall and strong? Good, good. That's what I like to hear. I must now commandeer your brains and I will give them back when I'm done. Years ago, I was out for a drive, and listening to the radio late at night. This would have been at the lower, collegey end of the FM dial. I want to say I was somewhere in Connecticut at the time. Total ballpark here, but I'd guess it was maybe something like 2006. I heard a song that I remember as being fun to listen to, and I wanted to find it again, and I have not been able to do so. Details are within. [more inside]

Advice for a friend in the original ATL music scene?
I have a friend who's trying to make waves in the local Atlanta music scene. She does acoustic singer/songwriter stuff and is trying to book more shows. Any advice or good places for her to contact that you would recommend? I've been gone from the city for awhile but mentioned Eddie's Attic as a good option. Thanks!

Modern Life is Magic
Help me find books that convey a jolly feeling of appreciation for the wonders of modern life. Ideally these would be books that have a sci-fi or fantasy feel, but in which nothing overtly magical or fantastic happens. The best recent examples I can think of are Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, which has all the elements of a fantasy novel but is set squarely in our world, and William Gibson's most recent novels, all of which feel fantastic to me but are grounded in real life.

Name that style of music
Trying to put together an upbeat playlist for running and really enjoying Pharrell Williams's Happy and Janelle Monae's Tightrope. To me they have a very similar sound/style, which also sounds like some oldies (though right now I can't think of any). Is there a name for that style? [more inside]

Is there such a thing as a PG-13 version of Rocky Horror?
Your stage experience has mostly been variations on the Vagina Monologues, political spoken word, or absurdly sexual burlesque. You secretly want to be Joan Jett. You're auditioning for something that asks for a monologue or song that is PG-13 at the most - what do you pick? [more inside]

Where do I find a freelance graphic designer for a quick turnaround?
Hi all, I have a quick ask for a graphic designer. Need to mock up a landing page - does not need to be final design, and with about 24 hour turnaround. Don't want to spend a ton of money - up to $100. Are there any places I can go to ask / designers willing to help out? I would ask designers at my job, but this landing page is for a personal project and they are extremely busy already.
