My husband is traveling to Senlis (seems like a small town north of Paris) at the end of August for 2 weeks on business. He does a ton of domestic travel in the US but this is his first international trip. He does not speak any French, and his top preference would probably be to exist in an isolation pod stocked with protein bars and free weights during the time he is not at the client site. Any tips for making this trip as bearable as possible for him? [more inside]

I'm arriving at CDG from Seattle around 8 am tomorrow morning and have a subsequent flight out of Orly around 5 pm. I've never been to Paris before. Ordinarily, I'd head into the city with this long of a layover, but I'll be back in Paris later next week and for sappy romantic reasons would like that to be my first time actually in the city. Where should I go for my long layover? Possibly relevant: American, non-francophone, willing to shell out for cabs, and into books/art/music/food/just about everything.

I would like to display Karaoke lyrics over a live webcam feed. This means I might need a skype (or equivalent) plugin that plays the music & lyrics, or find some karaoke software with the ability to display lyrics over a transparent background. (That is, to have windowless karaoke display, and run the webcam feed behind it. ) All the software (I can find) to play .CDG (karaoke lyric standard) files forces them to be played with an image background, or over a video file.

How do I take a song off a regular cd, add viewable lyrics (and whatever else is necessary) and turn it into a karaoke disc that I can hand to the kj at a karaoke joint? I already have evil lyrics and some other audio software, but I can only find reference to working with songs that are already on a cdg ... no references in my audio programs to exactly how to make one myself.

Karaoke Query. This should be simple enough, as I'm sure we've a mobile DJ or something similar in the group. Let's say I needed pre-recorded music (without vocals) for a popular song to be played at a wedding. Then let's say that I found said song on a Karaoke CDG. Would I be able to stick said CDG into a standard issue CD player and expect to hear the wordless tune?
