When might this Pet Shop Boys show end?

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?

Cartoon where train track is moving while train is oncoming?

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.

Home Purchasing Club

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]

Where do I begin reading Celtic Mythology?

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!

Podcasts That Make You Feel Smarter

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?

Looking for an old mashup

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?

It's another episode of "Help me remember this childhood book!"

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!

Songs with queer lyrics?

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]

Childhood book from the 50's

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,

Another half-remembered children's book!

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?

Trying to remember a beloved book from childhood
