What modern-day movie/tv composers can you identify after hearing only one or two notes of their music?

For example, I just turned on the TV, heard a note and a half of music, and thought "What John Williams movie has a boat like this?"  Turns out, it was Jurassic Park 3, and I couldn't change the channel fast enough.

What movie do you think should just NOT have had sequels?

Have you ever watched Style By Jury? It's this show where they set people up in front of a "jury" who judges them... then they get a super awesome makeover with their teeth done and everything.

I wanna do it!


A friend of mine wants to get a tattoo up the side of her neck and behind her ear. I have nothing against tattoos, but I told her that's a stupid goddamn thing to do because tattoos still aren't entirely accepted and a lot of people associate neck tattoos with prison/gangs/low-class people. She does not think anyone is going to take it in a bad way because she's getting music notes.

If she doesn't get that she wants stuff on her wrist and arm. I don't think that's a good idea either (at this stage in her life anyway...she's only 18 and not even out of high school yet let alone established professionally) because some people really don't want you showing tattoos at work. She might have to wear long sleeves every day depending on where she works and that won't be fun times during our ridiculously hot summers.

What do you think? Am I just living in the past and people really don't give a shit about tats like they did Back in the Day?

EDIT: I know it's her choice and her body. I'm not trying to prevent her from getting it (if she does end up getting I'll be going with her). I just want to know if you think visible tattoos can still affect one's career.

Tomorrow I am losing the internet until I hopefully move next weekend. What will I do with an entire week without internet??? I mean, sure, I could pack up all my stuff and start cleaning but I don't want to do that! I want to play on here!

Also, my mommy moved out today. I am sad. How do I get over missing my mommy and entering adult land? She cooks me delicious dinners and I have the culinary skills of a snail!

How stupid is it that HUD keeps pushing back my closing date? It was supposed to be September 30th and now it's the 16th. My lease is up the 21st. Will HUD push back my closing date again and make me homeless?

Today, my husband had to give the auto shop $750 to repair our entire braking system on the car. Are they crooks? They stripped the lugnuts when they put the tires back on and the wheels almost came off while we were driving tonight. Are they trying to kill my family? Can I sue them?

How many cans of spray paint would I need to paint a 5' tall 5 drawer dresser? What about an iron twin head board?

Anything else I can ask so I have lots of things to read next Sunday when my internet comes back?

Why do I feel awkward about it? What can you say to make me feel not awkward about it?

My sister is due the day after American Thanksgiving... my dad wants to take a week off and fly out east to be there for the holiday just in case she has the baby on time. Should I go with him? Do first-time parents really want company immediately after they've had a baby? Other things to consider are the money and time off work, but mostly I'm just curious if new parents really want a bunch of company right away.

I quit my low-paying full-time job a couple weeks ago so that I could focus on school. After quitting, I applied for a few part-time jobs on CraigsList as well as advertised my babysitting services part-time. I interviewed for and accepted a babysitting job rather quickly (although the first two weeks are on a trial basis). Two days later, I received an email from one organization I applied to work at (American Association of Law Schools or something) asking me to come in for an interview on Tuesday. Babysitting is definitely more fun and pays more per hour, but there's the opportunity for more hours with AALS and it looks better on my resume. TQC, what should I do?

Edited to insert my answers. I didn't change the questions except to bold them.

Do you play video games?
Online, platform, handheld (Tamagotchi counts!), arcade, PC? (does PC count as a platform?)
Online: WoW (thinking of WarHammer), NeoPets, New Grounds (too many to list), Dominion, Armor Games, Endless Forest, Orisinal and Motherload
PC: Zoo Tycoon, Big Fish (like Virtual Villagers)
Platform: N64-Legend of Zelda (Ocarina & Mask), Space Station Silicon Valley, Harvest Moon
GC-Legend of Zelda (WW & TP), Harvest Moon, Pokemon
Xbox 360-Viva Pinata, Beautiful Katamari
What style video games do you like best?
RPG, Accumulation, Time management, Puzzles
What game titles do you like?
Legend of Zelda is my all time fave.
Do you consider yourself a gamer?
Not particularly since I don't feel competitive or at all serious about it. Games I play must be a) pretty or cute, b) contain plenty of puzzles and c) not too much realistic violence. Also I think "gamers" like to complete things in time limits and such. I have no problem feeling my way through a game and going out of my way to do things that will take longer but look interesting.
What do you think of gamers? (whether you play or not yourself)
I think they're way more serious about gaming than I could ever be. For me it is strictly playtime. Too much intensity and I'm out. Real life has enough of that thanks.
Do you play board, card or table games?
Yes. We play tradtional games like Sorry, Monopoly, Scrabble, Chess, Uno, Spades and such. I've been interested in table games like D&D or Caton but haven't had the time or others to play.

Do any of you own rats? What are some fun activities you can do with them? I'm just now starting to bond with Goose, the rat I inherited from a neighbor, and I find he's very sociable and curious, but I'm not sure what kinds of things I should do with him.

Have you ever known someone to be a generally good, sweet person, and then something happens and they change? Did you confront them?

I knew a girl that was really nice, just a sweet girl. Then she got elected Sweetheart of my friends' fraternity and all the attention has made her into a total bitch. She now claims she's 'half single' because she's not happy with her (long distance) boyfriend so she's leading on as many guys as possible and says when she finds the right one she'll just dump her bf and be with that guy.

UGH I WANT TO PUNCH HER IN THE MOUTH. But I will probably never confront her about it unless the circumstance presents itself.

I used to get horrible ear infections a lot when I was a little girl. Like, awful. Hospitalizations and everything. So as a general rule, I am no stranger to ear pain. But I just got out of the shower about a half hour ago, and I think I may have gotten water in my ear or something because it hurts soo bad. It feels clogged and is buzzing (which is nothing abnormal because i have tinnitus) but the pain is bad and I'm not sure how to get rid of it, or if there is a way to. My other ear is fine. Now a little pain is starting in my other ear. Does anyone have any suggestions/comments?

So this guy I know, basically a friend of a friend, just had his cat pass away. :( This guy's really awesome and I want to do...something to help take his mind off things for 10 minutes or so. So, I was thinking of cupcakes, because I really like making filled cupcakes. But, like I said -- I don't know this guy well, so I don't know what his likes and dislikes are.

As such, I'm trying to think of a combination that would appeal to most anyone.

I've done chocolate with chocolate/mint filling, chocolate with peanut butter filling, chocolate with orange filling, chocolate with raspberry filling...but I could totally do a white cake with some filling.

What combination of cupcake and filling do you think would hold a lot of universal appeal and be super tasty?

So about a year ago, I got my sister's cat dumped on me. I was supposed to watch him for a few days while my dad's landlord came to visit, and then they were going to take him back..

Well...they never did.

I was going to find him a new home, but my sister begged me to keep him for her until she could convince her girlfriend to let her keep him in their house (which has never happened).

She still calls him her cat.

So...if she considers him to be her cat, should she chip in on cat food and litter more often? I think in the last year, I've gotten 1 large bag of cat food, 1 small bag, and 1 bag of litter.

I have cats of my own, so I don't expect her to give me food and litter every single time I run out, but every 1 out of 3 times...especially since her cat eats twice as much as my girls.

I feel she is totally taking advantage of me and the fact that my son is attached to her cat.

So, I have 3 loads of laundry to do. I go to the 3rd floor laundry room to, you know, commence in the doing of my laundry. I go in and hidden around the corner where the shelf to fold laundry is is some girl. Sitting there, being a creeper with a textbook in her lap that she's not actually looking at. It's not easily visible from the door, so when I see her, I jump. She just glares at me like I'm a freak of nature. We have 2 washers, one is in use and the other has 0 minutes, meaning it's done but nobody's opened the door since it finished.

I look at her. She stares at me.

I ask her if she knows how long that washer's been done. She stares at me. I open the door, remove the laundry, lob it in an empty dryer, and put my stuff in the washer. She stares at me.

I swipe my card, add soap, and look over my shoulder. She's still sitting there, being a creeper. 

To my knowledge, none of the laundry in that room was hers. TQC, does this girl have some sort of hidden ulterior motive that I should be warned about? Why is she being a laundry room creeper? Halp.

  • AT&T (off-contract)
  • I like it a lot (significantly more than all phones I've previously owned, except possibly my T-Mo Dash, but it had problems), but I'd rather have a newer Nokia at this point because Nokia skimped on RAM in this model. Though I REALLY love the camera, web browser, and the "back up EVERYTHING" function.

I was at the grocery store today & as I was checking out the clerk noticed that I was buying a box of sugar cubes.
She proceeded to tell me when she was back in school the teacher would hand out sugar cubes to the class right before a test. At first I assumed she meant the way they used to give out the polio vaccine, on a sugar cube, but she said no it was always just before a test. The principal would bring them in and the teacher would hand them out. She seemed very sincere about it.

Am I the only one who's never heard of this? Did they do this at your school?

After I've used the oil a few times, the scent of the essential oils is gone, and I think I'm just left with castor and olive oil.

How can I combine theh oils to make them evenly consistent throughout?


Fun with cartoons

1. Who likes the new icon (points if you can guess the show--even more points if you can remember the episode!)?

2...And are those rubber nipples?

3. Is the fact that I'm getting mushy over 80's music--specifically Heart, circa 1985--qualify me as a dork, minus the big hair?

If you have straight hair, how do you curl it?

My hair is BONE STRAIGHT, people always ask me if I flat iron it. I want to do some big sexy curls for Halloween but I have a feeling it's totally fruitless.

Internet lawyers, I need your helps.

So I went to Church's Chicken tonight, and while in the drive through I noticed they had a huge sign detailing rules of things they wouldn't accept.

Most of these were normal: no loitering, uhm...I can't think of any other examples of normal ones, but that doesn't matter.

Others weren't so normal: no picketing, no distributing literature, no weapons

Okay, all normal and dandy things for a private business to choose to enforce of patrons of their business.

Except there was just one problem.

These rules didn't just extend to the business itself, and the parking lot, but it explicitly stated it covered the sidewalks as well.

WTF - how?

Have you ever had something in real life end up in one of your dreams?

OK, for whatever reason, my oven makes weird noises at night, like a rat is running around in it or something (it's really creepy, I know), and I can hear it from my bedroom. Last night, I had this weird dream that I was escaping from this floating city in a beat up old blimp, and the engine was clinking around, which was a sign that it was going to break any moment. But then I woke up and realized it was my oven being creepy again.

Was there a TV show that you weren't allowed to watch as a child? What was it? Why weren't you allowed to watch it?

As a child my parents never restricted me from watching anything, but I did know a number of children who weren't allowed to watch Rugrats, and I never knew why.

My ex-girlfriend and I broke up almost three months ago, but still maintain contact and talk often on the phone. We have AMAZING conversations, laugh and just act silly like we used to. I love this and that is the problem. I'm finding myself falling for her and as much as I hate to say that I hate that; I do. What do I do?!

tqc, I had a job interview last week and my interviewer was obviously hitting on me. I haven't been called back and I think it's because I didn't flirt back at all, and he looked like he was hoping for it.

Does this mean I can never get the job? (For the future) Do you recommend flirting back to flirty interviewers? (I chose not to in case he was my boss; I didn't want to establish a relationship where I'd have to keep flirting.)

Mediot lulz

1) Why does Fox News still call themselves "Fair & Balanced"? Does anyone actually believe that they're either?

2) Why is Nancy Grace still latched onto the Caylee Anthony disappearance, and why does her producer still call Casey "TOT MOM" in the show's graphics?

Is it wrong to take the EOB from my dad's insurance when it gets mailed home?

Will he need it for taxes or something?

I'm thinking of going to a psychiatrist for meds, and using his insurance (I'm a dependent), but he's against it.

Sorry if I keep on talking about this. It's just something that I really need to do for my health.
