So Awesome Mix Vol. 1 turns out to be a perfect album to drown out the sound of rain while I'm reading before bed. What other commercial mixes or soundtracks are similar (not too bouncy and without large changes in volume) and might also serve in this capacity. [more inside]
Hey Internet. I'm a recent grad, and I loved the media-based extracurriculars I had in college (radio, newspaper, etc.). Do you know of any small media outfits (zines, indie newspapers, indie radio stations, off-beat special interest websites, etc.) that typically need volunteers in New York, New Jersey, or Philadelphia? I already know about WFMU. Thanks!
Hi guys! Okay, so I have a background is advanced art direction & design and I am looking into how to make superawesome interactive digital magazines and booklets that will kick ass and people will love. Do you have experience with this kinda platform stuff? Awesome. I don't. And most people I talk to don't, so I need your feedback and advice pretty please. And if you don't know anything about that, can you give me names of interactive books/magazines you think kick ass (and tell me why you like them) so I can check them out and be dazzled and inspired? Thanks oh, so much. :) [more inside]
So my nephew is turning 7 in a few weeks. We live at quite a distance from each other, but have good contact via FaceTime, etc. im flying up to be at his birthday and want to get Hume THE BEST PRESENT EVER!

I own a Kawasaki ZX-6 that I have done some moderate cosmetic customization to, including removing most of the fairings, reshaping the remaining fairings, removing the windshield, replacing the coolant tank and passenger pegs, and stickering the gas tank. The result is a street-fightery look that I'm quite proud of. Now I'm looking to get some custom vinyl printed and use it to recover the seats. I need help choosing a pattern. [more inside]
While settling a disagreement over whether Total Eclipse of the Heart was a duet, I just saw the music video and it blew my mind. I grew up without cable, and am pretty much ignorant of everything but the "classic" music videos from the 80's; please let me know what I'm missing. [more inside]

Early in his career, Conan O'Brien had Don Ho as his guest. Don Ho did a cover version of the Beastie Boys' single "Sabotage". This was the greatest piece of television history I have ever experienced. Is it available anywhere?

It’s my boyfriend’s birthday next week. Yay! Along with presents and activities lined up, I really really want to make him a series of date envelopes. So, he’ll get 12 envelopes, each one to be opened on the first of the month, for the next year. And in each envelope will be a piece of paper with a super fun thing for us to do together. The sticking point is, um, the super fun things. Kind, funny, romantics AskMe, will you hope me plan 12 months of super fun? Yes? Let's go! [more inside]
Where are some awesome jazz bars in London? I am looking for somewhere that has a resident live band... the kind of thing you'd imagine Brad Pitt and George Clooney planning a casino heist in with both of them wearing suit and shirt with no tie. Whilst drinking Scotch. Bonus points if it's a place that has an entrance fee to discourage the riff-raff.

I am currently writing short form fiction rooted in the horror genre. I am interested in playing with the traditional archetypes of monsters in super natural horror. What hybrid-monster combinations (preferably three or more, I especially like zombies, vampires, werewolves, ninjas, and mummies) would create a compelling but tragically sympathetic main character?
My fellow thespian seagull and I are considering a day trip to Greenland from Iceland in early July. We are seeing mixed reviews online with a few of the Air Iceland destinations.

My husband and I are throwing our very *first annual* Christmas party. We just bought a house, and I've been dying to entertain in it. The thing is, though, I don't want it to be too "grown up" - ya know, a boring adult party. Our number one requirement for our wedding was that the reception be fantastically fun - where everyone dances all night and no one sits around awkwardly, being bored. This is the kind of party I want. I don't want it to be boring BUT I do not want it to be because people are drunk out of their minds (I cannot stand ridiculously drunk behavior). [more inside]
