Many years ago the answering machine at my parents house received a mysterious phonecall which was two male voices. The first said clearly in a fairly loud tone of voice "Well you should be happy for me..." and the other replied "...I am... but..." The message then cut off. Is this from something, or a reference to something? [more inside]

I have some screenshots from a television show, and I would like to post them somewhere so that someone could identify the specific filming location for me (they weren't shot on a set, but on location; the Angeles National Forest area in So. California specifically). I've tried doing this in some Flickr groups but it's been fruitless. Any suggestions of some sites or online communities that could help me out? Thanks in advance!

I lost my last form of picture ID, and I don't think I have enough secondary forms to earn points for a new one because I'm paid under the table. Can I ask one of the companies for whom I once freelanced to send me an old W-2 form? Can they also send me old pay stubs? [more inside]

Hi, I need some help identifying a song. It was a slow Korean R&B song by a male solo artist. I don't remember much about it, I think there was a sole electric keyboard at the start playing a simple accompaniment. (not sure though) I know it is vague, but if you post some songs, I will try to lead you into a more specific direction.

Can you help me find this surreal novel? Years ago, I saw an excerpt from it. All I remember is a scene where there was a worm in a cage, and its droppings would fall onto some kind of musical instrument, creating strange music. I think this story was written in Eastern Europe, in the beginning of the 20th century. Thanks!

For those who are awesome at identifying songs from next-to-nothing - why does the guitar part from this song ("Aaron and Maria" by the American Analog Set) sound so naggingly familiar? I know I've heard it before, but for the life of me I can't place it. [more inside]

About two years back, I was traveling and picked up a huge book of short stories in a hostel. They were all by the same author, and for the most part, they were Roald Dahl-esque, intricately plotted, fast moving, usually violent or crimeish short stories with an elaborate twist at the end. However, one of the stories was a lovely departure from the others, and I'd like help identifying it. [more inside]

When I was a kid, I went to a summer camp in North Georgia for several summers. There was this one tree near the main parking lot that, for some reason, we all used to pull leaves off of and chew on them. They had a really pleasant sour taste. Anyone know what kind of tree it might have been? [more inside]
I have two big Muppet Show figures: Kermit in a director's chair (~2 feet tall) and Animal playing the drums (~1.5 feet tall). Photos here and here. I would like to find out what the official term is for this kind of thing (e.g. figure, "Pre-Pro Sample", mock-up), so I can figure out whether selling them is more of an eBay/Craigslist/freecycle/trash transaction. [more inside]
Anyone know what kind of shoes these are?
