Audio solution for apartment: iPod + TV

I live in an apartment and I'd like some sort of speaker/sound system to plug my iPod/iPhone into for playing music. Additionally, if possible, I'd like this solution to allow me to plug my TV into it and get better sound out of that. I know next to nothing about speakers or what I'd want (soundbar? Normal speakers?) so any general information would be welcome. I'm not looking for a multiple-speaker setup but just something that would enhance both my music and TV sound. Thanks for the help.

And remember: external forces are never to blame.

I've always thought King Missile's Failure was a pretty good depiction of the kind of intrusive, self-defeating thoughts that characterize depression. The recent FPP'd game Depression Quest does something similar. What are some other works that are reminiscent of the experience of having depression or another mental illness (as opposed to depicting characters with the illness?)

Identify a TV documentary (1990s) about life in the jungle (audio clip)

My father and I watched a documentary on TV in the 90s (likely TVO in Canada, possibly a National Geographic production?). It was about a boy named Ali who lived in the jungle with his father. It showed their daily life, how they hunted for food, etc. One scene I clearly remember is the father teaching the son how to create poison darts using toads. I believe the title was "Ali's Jungle", but I can't find any references to it on the internet. My dad and I really enjoyed the theme song, which was hummed by the father as he played a thumb piano. Here is a recording my father made at the time: Theme Song Any help identifying this show would be appreciated!

80s nature show theme?

I have fond childhood memories of the theme song from a 1980s nature show, but have been unable to find it anywhere on the internet. The main melody was played by a sort of synthesized oboe, with an odd synthesized rhythm of pops and clicks in the background, and the accompanying visuals were trippy, red-and-orange footage of various animals. I've recreated (badly) the main melody from the title sequence here. Can anyone tell me what show this is from, and point me to a recording of the original tune? Thanks!

TV commercial music filter: US television ad from a few years back (3-5 maybe) for a line of kitchen appliances (can't recall the brand - great ad, I suppose - so not sure about googling) that featured a montage of images showing food producers (farmers, fishermen, etc.) going about their work then smiling at the camera and holding the results (fresh vegetables, eggs, fish, etc.).

What a strange movie...

Weird movie memory filter: I feel like it was a Disney Channel movie. The premise was a 14ish year old girl wanting to be in a boy's band, so she ended up dressing like a boy and they let her in the band. She was also in an all girl band and it happened that they had to perform on the same day. Chaos ensues, and she is found out in the end... Any help is great.

Where can I find this documentary about the voice?

I'm trying to find a DVD/watchable online version of a documentary I saw probably saw about five years or so ago about the history of the voice in popular music. I think it might have been simply called The Voice, and was probably shown on the BBC or Channel 4 (although I think it was American-made). One episode featured harmony groups like the Four Freshmen and the Beach Boys. With such a generic name, Google is failing to help me find any details on this one. Does anybody know what it was actually called, and where I can see this again?

What is this TV show that licensed my music?

I just received a check from Pump Audio. I submitted my music to them a while back and, apparently, one of my tracks was used in a TV show. Woo-hoo! However, I can't find any information on the show it was used in. The information on the statement is as follows: Usage Description: Yearbook Episode 1998 Air Date: 6/11/2006 Ntwk/Pro: ABC I've Googled, to no avail. I can't even find any reference to a show of that name. Anyone have information or a suggestion of how where to look? Or, super-extra bonus points if you know how I can get a copy of it!
