How often do the major film studios release classic movies on blu-ray?
Do any of them (Warner, 20th Century, Paramount, etc.) have a releasing schedules or even just noticeable patterns that would help know when my favorites (film noir, golden era Hollywood classics, etc.) might be available in HD?

I am looking for an online resource for the correct formatting and layout of a news release. I have found several templates, but there is enough difference between them that I'm a bit confused. I have the essential structure and content down, but what I am looking for is what would be considered to "standard" correct formatting and layout.
Can anyone direct me to a good resource?

When I shrug my shoulders or stretch my arms above my head after not moving around for a while I can feel/hear the muscles kind of schlicking apart as though the different muscles were kind of sticking together (no pain). This doesn't happen with any other muscles though. Anyone else get this? [more inside]

Yesterday, as I was bending over to plug something in, I sneezed really hard and popped about 4 vertebrae all at once right in the middle of my back. Right in the spot where I carry all my tension. It felt absolutely amazing and a little dangerous. Is it possible to safely and regularly replicate that release of tension on my own, say once a day? How?

Good Evening! I'm looking for a release liner (similar to the peel off liners that go on the back of band-aids or gift bows) that would stick to the adhesive side of a piece of 2" x 2" surgical tape. Do you have any suggestions as to what type I should use, and if so, where I might purchase it? Thanks much!

In the U.S.: Do you use a press release distribution service that you would recommend? This is for a small business (with a relatively small budget) that at the moment mainly needs coverage in a metropolitan area, but which may soon expand to online sales so it would be good to establish as much visibility as possible. More details inside... [more inside]

Where The New Comics At?
: In addition to my many other hats I may be getting a job reviewing new erotica/sexuality/explicit etc comics in the future. I'd get my pick of any comic/graphic novel to review as long as it includes some element or discussion of sex or sexuality or whatever. The problem is that I have no idea what the new releases are and I can't seem to find a centralized list of upcoming titles with enough description. [more inside]

Anyone know of a source for prints (or a schedule for their release) of the very cool Tim Sale pieces from NBC's 'Heroes?' I'd love to have a few in my office, but have sadly only found references to the charity auction that was run last year
, and a sketchy UK front for mass oil reproductions from Chinese artists. Any insiders on the MeFi?

Are there any Release Management Engineers out there? I would like to find out about your daily routine. Besides the responsibilities mentioned in typical job descriptions, what is it like being a release management engineer? Is it stressful? Is there room for creativity? What sort of career path is there? Lastly, how does the pay compare with other software engineering roles?

What time are albums actually released on iTunes? The new Spoon comes out tomorrow, and I want to get it the second it's available. Is there a set time, like 12:01 am PST? Or does it just show up whenever they happen to update the store? (Yes, I realize there are, ahem, other ways to get the album, but call me old-fashioned.)

I'm doing some consulting as a release manager on a webapp. I recently got the programmers to start using subversion (by turning off their access to their old development areas...) and their own sandboxes, and releases go more smoothly than ever. But I'm getting configuration files that have to be individualized for environments leaking into the trunk, and I want to get my release process down to "type command. hit enter." What to do?

Press release distribution services! About six years ago, I coordinated the development and delivery of weekly press releases for my then-employer. I recall looking at and evaluating a variety of online distribution services before eventually settling on a service that was either free or very inexpensive. [+] [more inside]

Is it ok to release a non-native spider into the ecosystem? Specifically, a red backed jumping spider (Phidippus johnsoni), which is native to the U.S. west coast into suburban Massachusetts. The spider made its journey as a stowaway in a bag of grapes. I should also mention that it is a female, so conceivably could be carrying fertilized eggs.
