Noise to enjoy?

So I want to be battered with noise and I could use some recommendations. I have Metal Machine Music and like it, but would be all for something more...melodic? I'm pretty sure I need some John Zorn and Mike Patton in the collection, but which albums? [more inside]

Is it appropriate to get a letter of recommendation from people on the search committee?

I am currently a visiting professor at a liberal arts college. Our department is conducting a search for a tenure track position which I intend to apply for. I need letters of recommendation which address my teaching abilities. The people most qualified to write these letters are my colleagues that are on the search committee. Is it appropriate or inappropriate to ask them to write letters of recommendation for this position?

Where can I find real roast turkey in Princeton, NJ?

An older family member coming to stay with us in the Princeton NJ area eats a turkey sandwich for lunch EVERY day. Seeking recommendations for deli or grocery store that has actual fresh roasted turkey for sale (as opposed to deli-type pre-cooked turkey breast). Will go pretty much anywhere in the Mercer County area if necessary. Thank you for any direction!

You'll love this question...

Does anyone know of a research paper that states recommendations for a product/service/company are liked more? For example, if I recommend a book to a friend, they will end up liking it more. It seems to make sense to me, but I was hoping there was some research that confirmed this.

Recommendations for beaches in the Florida panhandle region over Christmas break

We've made a last minute decision to head to Florida over Christmas break. We'd like to stay somewhere in the panhandle region since it would be a fairly short drive for us (currently living in Alabama). Any recommendations for a particular beach/city? We'd like a place that's laid back, family oriented, and has nice clean sandy beaches to walk on and pick up shells. None of us cares for night life or shopping, but a good running/bike trail would be a plus.

Seeking recommendations for international shipping/moving companies.

Reading old letters of recommendation

I recently sent out several job applications that required letters of recommendation from a professor. The professor's secretary sent me a box of letters that were sealed, mail-merged, and addressed to each recipient, with the intention that I drop the letter inside the application package. (This is standard operating procedure, as far as I know.) I ended up not sending a few applications for which I received letters because the recipients later indicated that no positions were available. The application period is now over and I was not offered a position. I will not reuse these letters in the future. May I ethically open the remaining sealed envelopes and read the letter?
