So I decided to take the plunge and begin studying the chinese characters (before now I was still studying chinese, but only focusing on pinyin and speaking). My chinese teacher is elated! And I'm deflated. What are some good tools for study? [more inside]
I'm preparing to video record an interview or interviews with my friend who is 95 years old.

This coming week begins the revisiting of my intro to rock music course syllabus. I will need your help. One key topic is considering transgender issues in rock music, from~1940s to present.

Are there any good, entertaining, well-written single-volume histories of Canada? After years of promising myself to do it, I want to learn more about Canadian history.

I saw this necklace at the National Gallery museum store. Didn't buy it when I had the opportunity, now the museum store neither has it in stock nor knows anything about it so I can track it down. To me it looks like a lightweight opera-length geometric necklace or cube chain, but google searches have not turned up anything. It was just over $100. Can you help me find this, or something like this?

I'm looking for recommended movie versions of operas -- an example that comes to mind of the sort of thing I'm talking about is Ingmar Bergman's Magic Flute. I am NOT looking for filmed stage productions (like the Metropolitan Opera Live productions) or movies where only parts of operas are featured (like Amadeus) or movies based on operas where significant changes have been made from the libretto (like Carmen Jones), but whole operas filmed as movies. It's okay if they didn't get a normal cinematic release.
