I'm trying to find a poster of Ludwig van Beethoven for my wall at home.
I would love to have a poster with an image of Beethoven, perhaps some notes or sheet music, and some of the text (the original German, not a translation) of the Choral movement of the 9th. Obviously, I want something very specific. I've looked at allposters.com and several other online poster sites and I haven't found quite what I'm looking for. Does such a thing exist?

Song name problem. I remember an upbeat and poppy tune from a CMJ issue from the late 90's. The lyrics I can recall are "Take a bubble bath baby. There's a towel on the towel rack" and "Got a pimple, keep it simple".
I've tried searching lyrics sites via google and had no luck.
Is there a name for the type of vocal 'whoop'ing that sometimes happens at some dance parties or raves or somesuch, where the audience will all yell out 'whoop' or 'whoop whoop' in time with the music? Bonus cool points for recommending songs that actually have samples of said whooping in them.

Fox's House MD features a theme tune by Massive Attack in the US, but in Europe it has a different theme called "House" due to licensing problems.

I'm looking for good online CD shops.
My band have been offered a contract from by a record company and want to get it checked out before we sign it.
Basically I'm looking for personal recommendations of entertainment lawyers in the UK. I don't just want to pick one out of the yellow pages if I can avoid it.
I'm taking a holiday from around the 25th of July for 5 weeks to the UK, France and Germany. As well as doing plenty of sightseeing, I'd love to see some great live music by some bands/DJs that might not make it to Australia for a few years. Being in Melbourne, and having never been to the UK before, I have no idea about what source to go to, to find out what festivals or gigs by bands/DJs are coming up. Melburnians know to check their local street press, where do the Brits go to find out all their music news?
Please recommend some great websites for news, reviews and schedules. Anything with an RSS feed would be awesome, but I'm not worried if it doesn't have one.
A poke around in google found www.virtualfestivals.com
which seems to be good for festivals, but not much for gigs. Not like the usual street press that I'm used to reading.
I had the thought to go to Reading/Leeds Festivals or Creamfields, but I think they might already be sold out. I also have no idea where to buy tickets from. Are there major ticket agencies to head to? Is ebay a good option?
Also, any thoughts, recommendations or live music experiences for festivals, gigs or venues are more than welcome!

So, I really think that a combination of bluegrass and ska would be really hella cool. Anyone doing anything like that? I can almost hear it in my head (all fiddles and guitars and mandolins, and horns, in a ska rhythm). I'd love to listen to any band doing that kind of hybrid-fusion.
