Tickets please...movie tickets, that is.

When I was in Japan about ten years ago, I recall seeing a movie on the VHS rental racks about a guy working at a remote train station, possibly in the north of Japan? I seem to recall that the cover/poster had the station agent standing in a snowfall, and I think he was played by a much-loved actor, but I can't recall the title or the actor. I believe it's a dramatic film from the mid-to-late 1990s. Does this description ring any bells? I'd like to finally see it.

How to deal with someone unhinged who has threatened our reputation?

Need some advice on dealing with a mentally ill person over whom I have no control. Several months ago, I along with other people that I know, agreed to help someone put on a show. We run our own community theater company, and we have a lot of contacts – volunteers of all stripes, a couple of professional people, etc. Without detailing everything to the point of giving myself away, there were points along the way where we really thought we should quit, but this person was a friend, and we thought it would work itself out. Long story short, it has not. [more inside]

Deposit for old rental I don't live at.

I moved into a house with some friends in Los Angeles California, we all split the deposit (shared was $700 each), things got weird and I moved out with the person moving into my room agreeing to pay my share of the deposit. That was a year ago and promises of "in the fall" have now gone silent. What do I do now? [more inside]

Am I the dick in this situation?

A friend of mine is currently pretty pissed at me because I'm about to hang out with a girl that's friends with his ex's sister. In his mind it's only a matter of time before I'm hanging out with his ex too. Is he being an irrational dick, or will continuing to hang out with this girl only result in me getting a taste of my own dick medicine? [more inside]

Make a sword safer?

Stage Combat Question. Is it possible to take a bladed weapon and render it safe for use on-stage (without damaging the weapon itself)? I seem to recall from my days as a DragonCon volunteer that cosplayer's swords had to be taped* and/or bated (or else the sword had to be peace-tied so as to prevent its leaving a scabbard), but I can't find a description of the safety-making process.

Playing with fire? No, plays about fire!

Sort of a two-part question, though answering the first part will help me answer the second. First, does anyone know of a (preferably online) way to search for plays by topic or subject matter? Searching for title keywords is sometimes useful but not ideal, and I haven't been able to make the search functions at the major playhouses' websites play nicely either. Second, in particular, I'm looking for plays about, referencing, or otherwise related to fire, smoke, etc. Any thoughts on either? [more inside]

Looking for movies with stock comic characters!

I'm directing a farce with a bunch of high-schoolers, and would love to give them some movie suggestions to look at for characters. They are pretty classic comic archetypes, but my brain is reeling a bit trying to think of all of them, and though I'd put it out to the hive mind. The only catch is that I can't really suggest any R-Rated movies, because most of them aren't old enough to watch them... [more inside]
