(Asking for a friend): I am a Chicago Cubs fan living in NC, which means that I don't fall within the blackout restrictions put in place by mlb.tv. The league blacks out games that fall in the "home area" of a team; for NC, those are Atlanta, Cincinnati, Baltimore, and Washington. ATL and CIN are not a problem, because those games are shown on local cable; however, the other 2 are not. Anyone know of a way around this? I have Preferred TV cable package w/Time Warner (only choice in my area). Would rather not have cable at all. Thanks.
I'm curious to know if there are any works of novels, poetry, and non-fiction that parallel with the work of Walden? From an individualist, naturalist, and stream of consciousness point of view. Particularly works similar to Thoreau's eloquent writing style. [more inside]
I set up a Twitter account and I am only following people in alternative medicine like Dr. Andrew Weil. Let's call it User: "Health News" Now I would like to share all these tweets with a friend who likes alternative medicine but she will not be able to see them unless she logs into that account. Is that right? Or is there some way I can let anyone see all the tweets that user Health News sees? [more inside]
I want to stream music from my turntable to a Sonos. Is it possible to stream from a phono preamp's RCA line out to a Sonos device? Bluetooth transmitters allow me to treat RCA line out as a Bluetooth source, and I believe I can receive this as an audio source on my Android phone, but is it possible to then send this signal on to a Sonos? Or, and this begins to look like an unstable kludge, do I need a Bluetooth transmitter from the phono preamp's line out, and then a Bluetooth receiver at the Sonos device's RCA line in?
I just bought a Lenovo T440s laptop, and the audio is skipping when streaming it to my bluetooth speakers, no matter what distance I sit away. I had previously been using my iPhone 5s for this, and it was wonderful. Is this par for laptops, is it fixable, or am I doing something wrong? [more inside]
Long story short - diagnosed with ADHD, went on Adderall, changed my life, and I've found that I'm particularly productive if listening to non-lyrical, somewhat unpredictable/atonal music in my headphones. My go-to web streams are Soma.FM's Space Station Soma and Deep Space One, but both of these stations often feature music with vocal interludes or samples. These distract me a bit, as well as making me laugh, because the interludes are often quite hilariously stereotypical (reminiscent of Strong Bad's electronic classic "The System Is Down"). So basically, I'm looking for web streams of spacey music without vocals. Any ideas?

I ran across a travelogue a while back of two young women going on a long bicycle tour in the Eastern U.S. in the 1930s or 1940s. I think they started from Pennsylvania or another nearby state and originally intended to go west, but ended up going south. On the return trip, I think they took a boat up the Mississippi or another major river. Does this ring a bell? [more inside]

I'm not sure if it was ever linked on Metafilter, but I remember running across a web site where bands could set up online streaming and downloading of their music, with multiple audio formats and multiple pricing options. There were also various visualizers built into the music players. Hive mind, who can help me track down the URL I've lost? It was a relatively recent find in my travels on the internets—possibly late 2008.
