I want to make an elementary school music bulletin board full of (color) images of blue albums. They should be either be predominantly blue, or should have "blue" in the name. They also need to be appropriate for an elementary school (so Nirvana is out). [more inside]
Silly question about CSS3 background images that change size to "cover" shifting dimensions. If you have an image that changes size while snipping off the sides to cover an area, is there a good way to predict its "cover" behavior, so that a piece of HTML text can follow right along with it, so as to fit over a certain spot on the image?

My partner got an eyeliner tattoo today and it didn't go well. Needless to say she hates it, refuses to go out in public, and is edging pretty close to depression over this. It doesn't look that bad to me, but I'm the first to admit I'm fashion blind. Basically, the technician overdid it on one side resulting in the liner extending past the eye with a slight curl up, it's not a style that's unheard of, but it's not my partner's style at all.

Musical question: back in the 80s I heard a cover of Al Green's Rhymes. It was a snarkier, Gen Xy, punkish version. Very distinctive vocals, kind of raspy and whiny. I don't remember the music behind it much which makes me think it was minimalistic. I want to say the singer's name was Chris something? Who did this version? I have faith some mefite well versed in obscure music will come to my aid. Thanks!

Greetings, there was a cover of The Cure's Just Like Heaven on YouTube, sang by a girl. It was a slow version, beginning with a line of vocals, before the guitar swooped in. She used a Samson G-Track mic. I listened to it once before it disappeared. I do not remember her name and the video is gone. It was great. I want to hear it again. And again. Anyone remembers?
I think I'm going to get my son an iPod Touch for his tenth birthday, but we're accident-prone people, and I know he'll also need a rugged case to take his tiny abuse. Can anyone recommend something? [more inside]

What album cover featured notable musicians as the twelve apostles of funk, with Lionel Richie as Judas? This was described to me in the early nineties. I think it was the cover of a hip hop album. Perhaps it wasn't an album cover, but some other artwork. Google returns a couple of hits for Richie as "Judas of funk," but other searches led nowhere.

A while back, I came across a site that would generate artwork suitable for use in iTunes for those odd old singles you have on MP3. The artwork resembled an old 45 RPM record and I think could be customized with the track and artist name. Ring any bells? I can't find it in my bookmarks.
Can you help me find this vaguely-described song featuring/based on a cover of Britney Spear's Toxic? [more inside]
