What is this strange sea creature?

Can anyone identify this mysterious sea creature? My sister saw four of them swimming at the surface in Boca Raton, FL. They were undulating like squids; when contracted they look like black slugs, when stretched they look like that fellow in the photo. An entire crowd formed to watch, as they were so very weird.

What is this bag? What is this logo?

The other day I spotted a very handsome shoulder bag of brown leather with a red stripe. I want to own one just like it. I wasn't able to ask the owner where he got it, but I was able to spot the manufacturer's logo. It looks like a heart, split down the middle into two lobes, and lying on its side. I've drawn a very crude version of it here. It looks faintly familiar to me -- does anyone recognize it? And in general, is there a good resource somewhere for looking up logos?

What was this CD we listened to?

My Husband and I previewed a CD on display at Ear X-tacy in Louisville this weekend, vowed to remember the name of the artist, then promptly forgot it! We're from out of town. Here's what we (possibly inaccurately) remember: "-landia" was in the CD title. The CD cover was grey / B&W with a graphic design on the front, the music was electronica / orchestral / melodic. I remember thinking the artist might be icelandic / scandinavian from a quick glance at the artist's name, etc.

What the BUG?!

The cold weather seems to have caused horrible, alien looking bugs to invade our basement. They are fairly slow moving (unless startled) and look like spiders and grasshoppers mated to produce alien children. They are brown in color, have enormous, Daddy-long-legs type legs (but only six of them), and get pretty far off the ground when they jump. Can anyone tell me exactly what is sneaking up on me when I'm working at my desk at night? [more inside]

Commercial with the creepy old guy who said "Yah, yah, yah"?

What was the commercial around 10 years ago that had a creepy old guy talk about packing off his family someplace, with the vague insinuation that they might have come to a bad end? I think it was for computer printers or something, and he had taped pictures of the family up around the house and was reveling in being alone. The dialog went something like "Sent the grandkids off camping with their aunt Carrie. Yah, yah, yaaaaaaaah." The "Yah, yah, yaaaaaah" was said in sort of a satisfied sigh and was highly imitable.

In college my friend had a bunch of those random skate videos that mixed found footage, some skating and Big Brother style pranks and crap. This one was called "Darth Vedda" or something like that. And it contained a clip from a movie that I became obsessed with. The clips is of this dude getting into a hot-tub with two girls and he propositions them by saying "Jacuzzaruski?" I don't think it's from a porn, it has more of a Andy Sidaris kind of feel. I'd really love to watch this movie...anyone recognize it? Thanks!

What are these creepy yellow buggies?

What are these creepy little bugs on my flowering plants? They don't appear to be causing much damage, but they're gross and are creeping me out. They steer clear of the herbs and veggies, and only seem to swarm on a couple of flowering plants, mostly on the leaves and stems.

Another Stand-up Comedian Post...

Based on the current influx of questions about stand-up comedians, I've been reminded of a question that has been plaguing me for a while. But unfortunately, I don't have much information. - Male. 40+ yrs old. Dressed plainly. - Opened for Lewis Black at the Univ. of Connecticut in the Fall/Winter of 2006 or 2007 - Shtick was borderline psychotic. Like he was extremely angry and ready to snap. Genuinely scared me a little at the beginning. He never really left this personality. - Worked the crowd a little and even left the stage to walk through the crowd. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
