I love Paul Simon's Graceland album. How can I find more authentic african music in the vein of Crazy Love, Part II ? Particularly the happy, celebratory, guitar lines. I am aware of Samba Ngo, and Ladysmith BM, who I love. I want to dive into this happy sound. Help!
I'm in this class with some people. For unrelated reasons - but the idea of a tattoo field trip is funny! - we would like to go as a small group to get some tattoo touch-up work and some simple piercings. No one has had work done in the Twin Cities recently and we're not sure where to go. [more inside]
I'm looking for the title of a children`s picture book which had a boy named Paul and a man with a crystal ball named Solamand (sp?) . Many of the pages had shiny silver spots on them such as a silver rain puddle. I thought it had ``Apprentice`in the title, but maybe not. I don`t know when it was published but my children read it in the `80s. Paul somehow travels from his home to were Solamand is. Does anyone remember it?
Ron Paul crossed over to very strongly appeal to people who weren't previously politically active and who wouldn't normally have identified as Republican. Is there indication whether or not his son Rand is attracting similar support and excitement among that same crowd? [more inside]

OK, so I discovered the CBC radio show "The Great Eastern" via MeFi. They had a great site that archived show scripts, full MP3s, offshoot fan projects and many other bits of content that helped create an alternate universe. My question? The site (http://www.schooner.ce.mun.ca:8080/great/) is no longer available and I feel like I've lost a goofball interweb friend. Anyone know what happened? Related: Anyone know what Paul Moth is up to?
Xian Theology: most of the teachings of my wife's Church that really irritate me are either old testament, or from Paul. Given that Paul was not one of the 12 apostles (did he even meet J.C.?) and also that the Bible was put together at Nicea in the 4th century, is it possible to be a Xian and reject all Paul and Leviticus' homophobia? Any speculation as to what Xian teaching would've been like if Paul hadn't sent so many damn letters?
