The answer is not "just a pole"

One of my friends posted this picture on Flickr with the caption, "After several months, there's still no billboard on this thing. So what is it?" I have no idea so I'm turning to you.

Give me an easy way of keeping up with Chinese pop music

Is there a Chinese version of the year-end Billboard 100 charts or the Now That's What I Call Music compilations? Something where I can just buy an album every so often and have an idea of what's being played on mainstream radio in mainland China, without having to dig through music blogs? [more inside]

Truckers Delight?

Travelling on I81 in central Pennsylvania there are several large, sleazy billboards advertising places to get a "massage." From the billboard, it's hard not to get the impression that you will get more than a massage at the advertised establishment (the billboard gives an address.) What's going on here?

Figuring This Out Is Complicated

Viral Marketing Filter: I have seen several billboards locally with messages such as "My Life Is Complicated" and "Molecular Biology is Complicated". They are red with a white oval box in which the first two words are written. The "is complicated" part is written on the red background. Does anyone know what these are about? [more inside]

What did the Pearl Beer "waterfall billboard" in Dallas say in 1996?

What did the old Pearl Beer "waterfall billboard" on I-35 in Dallas say in 1996? Am I crazy in thinking that the lyrics in the chorus of the Butthole Surfers song "Pepper" made direct reference to the text of the sign? [more inside]

I'm going insane and I think it's the cheese

Do you remember those "It's the Cheese" billboards from the late 90s? They attributed various qualities of California to its cheese? Well I'm trying to find an image of one specific one, or at least remember exactly what it said. I know the term "excellent body" was part of the board, and I believe there was an image of two aging male dairy farmers. Google image and regular searches have not prooven helpful.

Buying Old Billboards

I want to purchase several years of Billboard magazines, the late 1970s and all of the 1980s. Three years ago I located a company online that was selling microfiche but an extensive search of the web with google didn't turn them up. I plan on doing enough work with the material that I don't want to make a trip to the library or pay for Billboard's online service (which last time I checked into it didn't go back far enough). Any sources for microfiche or maybe CD-ROMs?
