This is probably a stupid question for you smarties. I'm putting together an epic mp3 mix for all of my friends (tracks will be purchased from Rhapsody) and I don't know how best to deliver the goods to all of the inboxes on my list. First, how can I transfer the purchased tracks to the peeps? And can I do it so it's a package, tracks in order, so that it's easily downloadable to the various devices of my audience? I am thinking and/or hoping that this is an easy thing. I'm trying to avoid burning a stack of cds, and I just know that there is a better way to give the gift of groove to my excellent friends.

My SO heard this song on a DJ mix years ago and has been trying to find out the title/artist ever since. We’ve Googled the lyrics and tried to identify it using Shazam, but have had no luck. He’s uploaded a clip of it here. Since this was taken from a mix, it might be played back at a different pitch than it was recorded at. Can anyone identify it?
Looking for more songs like these: * Godsmack - I stand alone * Drowning Pool - Bodies * Rage Against the Machine - Bullets on Parade * Powerman 5000 - When Worlds Collide * 1000 Homo DJs - Supernaut * Ministry - Stigmata Trying to build a nice pregame gym mix and these songs get me going.

When I make instant hot chocolate, the directions always say to put the hot chocolate mix into the mug and then pour hot (not boiling) water on top. This does seem to produce better results than stirring the mix into hot water, although that might be confirmation bias. Does this actually work better? Why? [more inside]

I'm looking for songs that mix 80s and/or 90s pop with other genres.

Any other genre is fine but electronic genres are preferred. Thanks!

I'm looking for recommendations for hot chocolate mixes which don't require you to add them to milk (it's probably best if they already contain the milk, but that's not required as long as it doesn't taste thin and watery when you put it in hot water). I'm not lactose intolerant, but I don't usually have milk around, plus it's much easier & more convenient to heat up water. [more inside]

I have to make a Halloween party dessert on a tight schedule. In my cabinet I have a box of Dr. Oetker organic blondie mix and a can of organic pumpkin. According to the box directions you're supposed to add 1/4 C. melted butter and 2 eggs to the blondie mix. Can I add some of the canned pumpkin? About how much, do you think? How much of the butter or eggs would I leave out to make it still hold together with the fats, but not too gloppy with the added pumpkin?
