What can I expect after an abortion?

Someone close to me will be undergoing an abortion in about a week. My role will be to support her during and afterward. We don't know yet whether it will be the medical (plan B pill) or surgical procedure. What kind of physical and emotional side effects can we expect to deal with? Can anyone who has gone through this offer advice or wisdom? The patient is 18 years old, athletic, and otherwise in good health.

Live bass guitar looping - how DID he do it?

A little while back I heard a bass guitar player with some kind of amazing live looping set-up - what on earth was it? I keep wondering what he was doing. All I could see was that he was grabbing (sampling) things he was playing, as he was playing them (ie while he was continuing to play), using foot pedals of some sort, and then incorporating those loops into the rest of the track. Amazing. But how?

Digital Sound: Variable Speeds with same pitch: How?

many programs and devices have a function that slows down or speeds up audio without changing the pitch. my rockheaded layman's theory on illustrating how this must be done is that it divides the whole audio track into something like audio pixels that are so short that they can be shortened without actually removing any of the details that you're hearing-- it's just you're hearing every small detail for less of an amount of time (likewise with slower speed, it lengthens the amount of time that you hear every of those little "audio pixels" so that it is twice as slow).

Busby Berkeley Effect?

I want to recreate, as closely as possible, the Busby Berkeley effect where the faces go all kaleidoscopic and hazy, like in 42nd street. Here is a still. Does anyone have any ideas on how to do this, via plugin, or motion paths? Also, for extra credit, how did they do this in the 1930's? I use After Effects and Premiere.

To be honest, I'd rather think that it was unintentional.

What's up with that annoying fast-motion digital effect that's been popping up in movies the past few years? I think it's supposed to make things look scary, but it really has the effect of making everything look like a bad Benny Hill comedy. Is this something that directors do to their movies on purpose, or is it a byproduct of some sort of digital processing? [more inside]

Flash masking effects

Flash masking effects: I'm trying to duplicate the flash slideshow photo transition at http://www.247consult.com/ (minus the menu). I've found a file on istockphoto that's close, but very difficult for me to customize to my own photo dimensions. I've yet to find a decent tutorial on masks much less one that creates the nifty "box" effect. Furthermore, I don't know what this type of mask is generally referred to....Ideas?
