From banned to boring.

What are some songs that were shocking or sensational when they first came out - even got banned from radio play - which are now considered so humdrum that they're played on "easy listening" or "soft rock" or perhaps even "family safe" stations?

Can a 46 year old female survive a move to the left coast?

Culture shock, loneliness or a whole new adventure? I am considering a move from Central New Jersey to Thousand Oaks , California for a great job opportunity. I am a divorced 46 year old female. My mother and one brother live within 2 hours of the new location. My boyfriend and I broke up 2 months ago, I have lived in NJ for decades, I have long time friends here, prefer intellectual versus athletic pursuits, like witty sarcasm, and worry that it is difficult to make friends at this age/stage. Wondering if that is a deal breaker (I am quite shy). Any advice, thoughts on the culture out there?

Newscasters mimicking bearded dragons?

It seems like all local TV news anchors have that goofy habit of bobbing their head up and down, to and fro, while they're talking, as if to punctuate the text they're reading. Is this something they are taught in broadcast journalism school, or just an unspoken convention?

Dadaist Organic Urban Idealism?

I'm having trouble tracking down information about a movement in Dada-ist Art I heard about a few years ago. From what I remember Dadaist idealism inspired a group of artists to contemplate the organic development of urban environments. Art, using the defined structure of the city, to reflect the chaotic order which arises from nature. Did this century old movement exist or has my brain made it up?

Culture and begging in America - is there a connection?

More American urban sociology: I live in a city with a diverse mix of ethnicities and cultures. How come the only people I ever see begging for spare change are either white or black? Why do I never see asians or hispanics begging? Is this a real cultural phenomenon, or am I just making false conclusions based on a too-small sample size? [more inside]

Does American popular culture have a negative attitude towards apartments?

Nazi: Still a four-letter word?

Does the re-purposing of the word "Nazi" in U.S. culture in recent years to mean generic-overzealous-rule-enforcement instead of Homicidal-Socialist-German-Workers-Party detract from the horror of the Holocaust and the other crimes perpetrated by actual Nazis? Is the "Soup Nazi"-type usage of the word "Nazi" taking away the power of the word? If so, is that the right thing to do? Is it causing greater estrangement in cultural relationships between the U.S. and Europeans? How is the word "Nazi" used in your community/workplace/social circles? [more inside]

How to entertain an international audience at a wedding?

I am to be the best man at a wedding of a German and Italian (the bride). I have been asked by the couple to speak in English on the day. Most people attending should be able to understand some English but unfortunately there will still be a number who will not understand. Any clever ideas on how to bridge the language barrier? German humour and Italian humour - what are they? Are they compatible? How could I work them together? As I am British, I don't know the different customs and practices at Italian weddings and German weddings. What are the things I should really make a point of doing and not doing? Are there some finer touches that would really go down well? [more inside]

What can I learn about women's changing roles in the world?

In the U.S., we get all caught up in the decisions that adult women make and the consequences of those decisions. (To have children, not to have children, to work, to stay home with the children, not to work, to marry, to have children without marrying, etc.) Are there similar convulsions about these cultural issues in other countries, especially non-English speaking ones? How can I learn about them? I'm curious both about how women's roles in in their societies are changing and about how those societies are reacting to the changes.
