Any good, detailed articles on sound design in movies?

I really enjoyed this NYT article on sound design in No Country For Old Men. Does anyone have any links/references to any similar articles about sound design in other films, past or present? Ideally they'd be a little longer and more detailed than the NYT piece, but I'd rather not read a book on this (unless it's brilliant!)

and while we're at it, can you help me run the Talking Moose?

When we were in college, the lovely Mrs. Haddock professed her love in several sweet sound files that I'd like to be able to hear again. Please help bridge the gap between a PowerBook 520 and a Quadra 650 running System 7 and a MacBook running Leopard. [more inside]

Why won't my Remote Desktop server forward sound?

I recently reinstalled Windows XP Professional on a "headless" machine—that is, one that I access only via Remote Desktop. Each time I've previously set this machine up, Remote Desktop has properly forwarded sound to the client computer; this time, however, sound doesn't work with Remote Desktop sessions. The hardware's the same as it's always been, and I'm using the same drivers and software. What's wrong? [more inside]

I'm looking for an MP3 player that you can treat like a USB drive. With recording capabilites.

I'm looking for an MP3 player that you can treat like a USB drive. In other words, I want to load MP3s onto it by just plugging the device into my machine and the copying files over. I do not want to use a specialized program like Itunes, and I want to use a standard USB or Firewire cable to plug the device into my computer. [more inside]

Deep in-the-ear earbuds that don't leak sound.

I'm looking for cheap, deep-in-the-ear earbuds for listening to audiobooks. The sound quality doesn't have to be great, because I won't use them to listen to music. I want cheap ones, because I inevitably break headphones, and I don't want to have to spend $100 every month. On the other hand, I'm willing to spend $20 a month if I have to. In-the-ear, because I don't want to keep my wife awake with "leaking" sound. [more inside]

Longest Sound File?

What is the duration of the longest digital (or digitized) sound recording? What is it of? And where can it be listened to? I'm not interested in midi, only natural recorded sound. Is there a theoretical limit to a digital sound recording? Tape can go on forever, but filesystems and drive space would have to eventually limit the size of the file (or do I have that wrong?). Just curious. I'll take my answer off the air.

Why isn't there a sound equivalent of the one-way mirror?

I know that one-way mirrors aren't really one-way, but why isn't there an equivalent to this general concept when dealing with sound?
Why is it that you can't have a box which lets sound come out, but blocks it from going in?
I await your elucidation.
