I have a bunch of undeletable podcasts on my iphone 4s that I would like to get rid off but can't.

I have a bunch of undeletable podcasts on my iphone 4s that I would like to get rid off but can't. this is what it looks like: http://imgur.com/oiNKY this happened because the downloads failed (blame the craptastic chinese mobile connections). I cannot redownload these episodes, I cannot play them, I cannot swipe-to-delete them, I cannot see them in itunes. a restore was no help because my last backup already had these "ghost files" on them. I don't want to wipe the iphone because maps in ios6 is even worse in china. do you know how I can still get rid of these unusable files?

Happy birthday to me, I'm a hundred and three....

My son, a first-grader, sings a song to the tune of "Happy Birthday" that goes: "Happy Birthday to me / I'm a hundred and three / I still go to preschool / and I miss my mommy / my mommy's at work / she fired a jerk / she hired a monkey to do my homework." Most kid-culture folk songs my son brings home are well-known to me from my childhood, but not this one. What is the origin of this song, if it has an origin? How old is it? [more inside]

with my double barrel shotgun and a whole box of shells we'll celebrate the fourth of july

Please suggest songs (mostly but not exclusively blues and americana) for a soundtrack to a story about two very bad people on a cross-country Bonnie & Clyde-style crime spree. Ideally the lyrics would be at least a little bit relevant, but that's less important than the tone. The best example I have so far is Holly Golightly's Devil Do. [more inside]

I've wondered where home is. It's when I was in Indianapolis when I was nine years old. Had a dog, a cat, a brother, a sister.

Inspired by this thread, from which I got Dan Mangan's Basket, and Chocolate Genius' My Mom. I'm composing a playlist as a mediation on my parents, and I wondered what other songs others thought of when they thought of Mom and Dad.
