I have a hazy memory of a comedy sketch that focused on the thoughts of a backing singer as he supports a female singer through a song. In my poor and pock-marked memory, it's Gladys Knight and the Pips singing Midnight Train to Georgia but that might only be because that track prompted this memory and I think I can picture the backing singer making that train whistle pull on the whoo-whoo!

I co-run a trivia night and had the idea for a category when I realized that Bob Denver played both Gilligan in Gilligan's Island and Dobie Gillis in The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis.

Ditto Scott Baio as both [Joanie loves] Chachi and Charles [in Charge.] What are some others?

A friend's new workspace has no windows. I'd like to get her a beautiful print depicting a window. Budget $50, so a small poster or something like that. But everything I find online is cheesy, like a generic tropical vista with a window frame around it. That's not her taste at all. I'm hoping for something that stands on its own as beautiful or interesting art, but happens to depict a window. Artistic hivemind, can you help?
