The mythical Superchunk British Knights commercial

For many many years, I've heard about an early-90's commercial for British Knights sneakers featuring music written by Superchunk. It appears lost to the mists of time. UNLESS you know where I can find it or see it, or heck, even just listen to it. Anyone?

Looking for pc action-adventure game from the 90's

-PC action-adventure game, mostly action, but I do remember simple adventure things like moving blocks or unlocking doors -first person view -can't remember how health stats and weaponry were viewed -Had to rescue a woman (go figure), but not sure if she was royalty or anything, just motivation to do the journey -Started in kobold (or kobolt) caverns, there was a spider cavern section where it was tunnels burrowed by the spiders themselves, a lava cavern/mining level where you had to break down a rock borer (might have been a laser) -mid to late 90's probably because it's graphics were close to Quake 2, just not as smooth [more inside]

from whence the look of music videos from the late nineties?

Many music videos from the late nineties, six underground by the sneaker pimps being the most salient example to me, have a distinctive cinematographic feel and style to them, with very high contrast (super dark blacks and popping-out, almost oversaturated whites); a lot of murky brown/green and pops of red/blue. Does this style have a name? Is it a film effect or some kind of post-processing, or both? digital? Why was it so prevalent in the late-nineties, and, correct me if I am mistaken, mostly just for music videos? [more inside]

Looking for a book, can't recall the title or author.

I'm looking for a book I read as a pre-teen. It's been years since I read it and I can't recall the name of the writer, or the title of the work. I recall a little of the plot, but not much. As far as I recall, it was about a girl living in a small town in the east coast who falls into a pit, or cave, something like that, and is saved by a man made of earth and stone. [more inside]

What is this song from the early 90's?

What is the name of the band and song in this video from the late 80's-early 90's? I came across this old post on Yahoo! Answers and now it is driving me nuts. One of the guys in the band had on a Charlie Brown shirt and the video took place in a skate park. "California" may have been part of the band name. Ring any bells?

What TV show was this?

A boy buys an earring at an old junk shop, either he can't afford both or the guy sells it to him for a great price because there's no pair for it. Once he start wearing it though, trash becomes attracted to him. He ends up taking refuge (I think) in a phone booth and the trash falls away when he takes out the earring. My question, what show was this? [more inside]

I just need to know, okay? Don't ask why.

Sometime during the 90's, there was a proto-techno group which I just can't identify. I remember a specific music video in which a large, comically dressed rabbit broke into a laboratory for some illicit purpose. The only thing I know about this group is that the singer is a heavyset black woman, and they sound kind of like Real McCoy or ATB. What is the name of the band? [more inside]

Peace and Prosperity of the late 80's and 90's

I found myself warm and nostalgic today for the brief period between the end of the cold war and the war on terror. Do you think history will look at it as a very good time to be alive or is this just me being a nostalgic Gen x-er?
