Driving through Poughkeepsie, NY this weekend, I spied this amazing billboard lurking at the back of a parking lot off Route 9. I think it was quite recently uncovered and, from a quick look at the wood frame, looks like an actual old ad. What year is it from?
When listing music labels, what do the numbers mean? For example Decca 29418, Decca 32230, etc.
Can anyone explain this sign that I've seen in at least one DC Metro station? [more inside]
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.
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]
Part of my commute goes along Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood. There are a ton of billboards. Now I'm curious about billboards. Could you answer some questions about billboards for me? [more inside]
You know those amazing billboards with moving parts and 3D effects and breaking the 4th wall and so on? Where the hell are they? [more inside]
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?
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 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]
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.
I want a picture or image file of the UK billboards for Lost Season 1. [more inside]
Please help me find this Parker ad billboard poster type thing. [more inside]
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?
