I want to make dioramas with a twist

I'd like to create little diorama-like scenes to play with my cool new mirrorless camera. The twist? I'd like to have little moving things in there to make it more fun for video. Any small, whimsical objects that you can recommend, especially ones that move around on their own? [more inside]

How to draw a nose on my son. And other uncanny valley questions

I'm making a book illustrated in paper cut-out style (i.e. it looks like shapes cut out of paper and glued onto the page). All is going ok except for making a recognizable picture of my son. I'm willing to do a little bit of drawing on the paper shape to make features but I don't know how. He has no nose. Please help me. Illustration and photo here. [more inside]

Looking for a Photo Blog from Long Ago

I am trying to track down a series of photos a father took of his teenaged daughter that I saw many years ago on his personal blog or maybe Flickr. All I remember is that the photos seemed too voyeuristic to be taken by the father and that the subject, a Grunge/Punk teenager smoked a lot. I know some of the photos were taken in the Baltimore area because I distinctly recall my old coffee shop hangout being in them. Ring any bells?

Wallace Shawn without his lisp?

Wallace Shawn has a lisp, but I have a definite memory of seeing him on screen speaking without a lisp, pronouncing perfectly normal esses. Unfortunately, my definite memory does not include details such as the show or movie. Does anyone else have a similar memory but with more information? [more inside]

Find This Deceased Home Blog?

This blog would have been up somewhere in the 2006-2012 range. It was a DIY home blog. The name of the blog was something involving the savagery of nature -- tooth and claw, bone and claw, red in tooth and claw, something like that (but I'm pretty sure none of those). The aesthetic of the (female) blogger was sort of gothic, colonialist, and she might have been British. Lots of fake tiger skins on the floor, dark jewel-toned hues, imposing leather chairs, and so on. I have a vivid memory of a blog post she did with incredible faux bois and faux malachite finishes on a thrifted dresser. [more inside]

Gym Playlist Suggestions Sought

After reading and really loving the Christmas music suggestion question, I thought I should come to the fine folk of MetaFilter to ask for some new gym songs. My playlist is weird, my coach is tired of it (LOL), and it needs some freshening up. The last question was a couple years ago, and there is a lot of music out there. [more inside]

Funny/horrifying tales of community implosion

This article posted on the blue today about a would-be libertarian utopia undone by the totally predictable outcomes of having that many libertarians in one place plus bears scratched a deep itch I didn’t even know I had. Please give me more media about similar groups of oddballs undone by combinations of entertainingly petty human drama and consequences that seem patently obvious to everyone but those involved.

A Movie that is more Musical than Movie?

I'm new to the musicals genre. Many of the book musicals I want to see are no longer being performed live. I just watched Mel Brook's "The Producers" movie with Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder. It preceded and was the inspiration for Mel Brooks' 2000 "The Producers" book musical. And that led to the movie, "The Producers" in the spirit of the musical. [more inside]

Can you identify this movie that involves a bully?

I saw a series of clips yesterday on a Facebook video, one of those things where they give it a click-baity title like "bully gets what he deserves" and then puts together a few scenes from a movie that is never identified. Nobody in the comments knew what it was either. Maybe you will recognize it? (Obvious spoilers below the break) [more inside]

What jazz be this?

I have an old copy of the Hal Leonard Ultimate Jazz Fake Book. Over the years I've noodled through all the songs at least a couple of times. I have at least a vague idea of where all the songs fit in jazz history... all except one. Fool That I Am, written (so far as I can tell) for the 1980 romantic comedy Coast to Coast and performed by Rita Coolidge. Chords, melody and recording style fit into none of the jazz eras or idioms that I'm familiar with. How did it end up in the fake book?
