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?

There's a book I read about 8 years ago I'm trying to identify. I can't remember the title. It was a thick paperback, a blue cover with possibly a butterfly on it. But here's the weird thing
about this book, which is why I am hoping someone can help me - it was written by two people, and they were only identified by their first names on the cover.
I had never seen that before. On the cover, it was like, "Edward & Judy" or something like that. Weird, huh? [more inside]

Please help me identify this old song. There are no vocals, but lots of trumpets. It's a smoky standard that they often play in the movies when there is stripping, like on a stage. [more inside]

Does anyone know the theme music for the Canadian Fashion TV show ? (you know , with Jeannie Becker). It was used thru the 90's, I'm sure it was taken from an exisitng tune. They didnt reply to my email about it.

Can you help me remember this barely remembered cartoon from my childhood? A community of alien looking people live on a floating island and go out in flying boats to catch flying whales. Every so often one of them would turn blue and die, and they would throw him down a well. The well was actually a hole passing through the island and as the body fell it would turn into a new sky whale. Any ideas?

Can anybody help me identify a comic I read around 30 years ago (yes, I know, but it was really good, hence this request).
It was one of those American “fantastic tales/stories” (don’t remember the actual title) and as I remember the stories were from the 1950’s -1960’s. The strongest story was about a somewhat put upon geeky chap, a genius scientist whose life is dominated by an alpha male type. This man steals his ideas and become successful on the back of the scientists groundbreaking theories. Anyway, for some reason, the alpha male is not able to care for his newborn son, and our scientist offers to care for the boy. The twist is that the scientist uses the infant as a guinea pig to test his theories on nature/nurture, and the infant ends up looking exactly like the geeky scientist and not our obnoxious alpha male. Ok, ok, this may not sound that great a story but it had a big impact on me as a kid, and would love to find the comic if I can. Any ideas?

On BBC Radio 6 a few days ago, probably sometime late at night or early in the morning in British time (I was listening in the afternoon in the US) they were playing a concert recording of an artist who’s volcal style resembled a less coherent Amy Winehouse. One of the songs used part of tchaichovskys Romeo and Juliet for a hook, and it was all mostly soul/R&B type music. Any ideas what it was?

Can you identify this face
? It's part of a clue in a treasure hunt. There are numerous hints that the man might be French, and/or a composer or organist. Or a philosopher. Anyway, see if this photo rings a bell. Thanks!
