Is there a music search service that showcases artists and genres, with links to all the places you can download their music (including individual labels and/or artists) and for how much -- like Kayak.com, but for music instead of travel? I'm no programmer, but somebody needs to be doing this. Does anybody know of anything like this, either current or in development? What does it take to get something like this started? Like so many others, I am missing Amie Street. Emusic, itunes and Amazon do not provide the same level of music discovery and bargain hunting. There is a gap that needs to be filled here.
I'm looking for thin sheets of rigid material that have a regular pattern of holes in them. So, a sheet of opaque plastic with ben-day dots drilled out of it for use in a fluorescent light fixture would be great. Any ideas? Search terms? The material the sheets are made of is unimportant, as is the size and placement of the dots.

Buying Boots and a parka in Northern Alberta (Canada.) Where to look? The post title says it all. I'm buying boots and a parka in Northern Alberta (Canada.) I'm only a couple hours north of Edmonton and can go there if necessary, but ordering online is also something I'd consider. I plan to be spending a decent amount of time outside and want to get gear that will keep me warm, and last for years to come. What are the quality names? Where is a good place to look?
I need to make a vessel that will hold half gallon of water, and will not leak for at least 1 hour. The catch? I can only use 1 newspaper, 1 pound flour, 1 tablespoon of salt. It has to be ready for tomorrow. I can use my oven to bake it or dry it, so it has to fit in my oven. These are the "only" limitations. Any ideas?

I want to make this short and excuse my uneasy temperment. I'm in Korea teaching English. Teaching for almost a month to be exact. No background in teaching nor attending a seminar for ESL teaching. It's very hard since I'm doing this in the middle of the last school semester. I don't know what to do to be honest. I speak Korean and this is a menace. They have huge expectations about me as I can speak both languages. I need to improve my teaching skills overall ASAP. But what to do?
I just caught the documentary Dig! and though I'm pretty familiar with the Dandy Warhols, I've never really gotten into the Brian Jonestown Massacre. So, what's a good introduction to BJM that will keep me coming back for more?

Are there any rules hacks we should introduce?

Yesterday I received a text message from an excited stranger asking me whether I was ready for some sort of meet-up (possibly a first date) tomorrow (today). I duly yet tongue-in-cheekly informed her that she had the wrong number. Now I'm wondering, on a scale from stalker/freak/weirdo to fun/random/friendly, how inappropriate would it be for me to follow up tomorrow, asking if it went as well as she hoped? (Obviously in a humorous and "I'm aware of how random this is" kinda way) [more inside]

The BF and I are planning a 1 or 2 night trip from Philly to Rehoboth Beach in December or January as a holiday getaway (and to visit the Dogfish Head Brewery). We're looking for somewhere to stay that would be both affordable and cozy for a winter weekend, and preferably something within walking distance of the boardwalk. We like inns and B&Bs over hotel/motel chains, and have searched google but would love some more personal recommendations. Anyone have advice for somewhere nice, with character, for under $150 per night? Also, any suggestions for other activities to do in the area? Will the boardwalk still be active that time of year?
