Have you ever wanted to visit a specific location because it was featured in a song/movie/tv show?

I've always had a fascination with Vienna, and the Billy Joel song made me want to go there more. Even though the song isn't directly about the city. Back when I loved Gilmore Girls, I also wanted to visit Washington Depot, CT which is what Stars Hollow is based on. And every time I see a shot of Paris in a movie I just want visit it again.

Inspired by all those hardcore Twilight fans who make pilgrimages to Forks, Washington

Recommend some good internets radio please?

I used to enjoy club fm radio, but it changed years ago and I haven't liked it since. T_T

I could go for some good electronic music. Yes yes, it's just background noise, but that's what I want. Helps me focus on my work.

ETA:

Currently listening here:
http://my.1club.fm/go?/radio
to channel 111. What's currently playing on 111 is pretty much what I was looking for, wee. Also enjoyed channel 114.

Still taking suggestions, though.

1.) What are some things you do that make you think you're not a very evolved being?
Whenever i eat something that I'm holding using a paper towel or napkin, I almost always eat a little bit of the napkin. One time I ate half a napkin and the whole time thought "Damn. The texture of this apple is weird". I've done this multiple times. :(

2.) Someone cuts in front of you in line while you're turned around at a bakery and gets the last pastry you planned on getting. What do you do?
Kill them.

3.) What's a stupid human trick you can do?
Roll my tongue into a four-leaf clover shape.

4.) Are you going to eat your cornbread?

How much would you be willing to pay in order to go up in one of those commercial space shuttles (that they keep promising are coming but never seem to actually make) that takes you up into space for a hour or so then brings you back down to earth?

edit: Your guys lack of wanting to go into space saddens me. Don't you want to boldly go where very few men have gone before?!

for the record, i asked said fuck buddy multiple times for a relationship and he said he didn't want one every time.

How about vox.com? It's made by Six Apart, the guys who used to run LJ. I've already made myself an account, just in case, or rather, for when it happens. Apparently it can do everything LJ can do and you can import your LJ into it (still figuring out that part). Who's with me?

Movies and Food.

I just saw Lars and the Real Girl for the first time yesterday and I loved it. Now I'm craving some more good movies to watch. Any genre, and my answer is almost always "No" when someone asks me if I've seen a film...so I've probably not seen anything you guys might suggest. So can you guys recommend me some films that I need in my life?

OMG FINANCIAL FREAK-OUT (well, not really)

Does a credit card expire on the first or last day of the month listed on the credit card if the expiration date is just the month and year?

My credit card says it expires 08/09. Would that be August 31 or August 1?

I want to buy plane tickets through cheaptickets.com for a flight that would take place around August 20. I know sometimes the charge doesn't go through when buying airline tickets until the day of the flight or right before or something...? If my credit card were expired by then would this affect it? My bank account would still be open, but I will have no way to obtain the new credit card until the end of the month, unless my parents get it and mail it to me.

Edit to clarify because I'm an idiot: it's actually a check card/debit card, not a credit card

Paging Dr. Tee Cue See

The past few days (near a week), I have been incredibly itchy and rashy. For example, upon wiping my mouth on a napkin after lunch, my lips start burning and feeling all numb and inflamed. This is even happening when I'm talking. Also, I keep being itchy and then once I scratch it, it gets massively red and welty.

I don't have any new shampoos/detergents/fragrances, clothes, bedding, etc. The only thing I could think is that my histamine levels are up for some reason. My one guess is that since I have a dairy allergy (diff. than lactose intolerance) and I've been taking in dairy this holiday season, it has my body on high alert.

Has anyone else every had this? Does anyone have any ideas on how to deal with this?

P.s. I can't take enough Benadryl to squelch the itch without getting far too drowsy.

have you ever had a friendship/relationship where you both have been quite guarded, and never really had a deep conversation then suddenly you both just let half a tonne of feelings spew out at a completely inappropriate moment?

me and a male friend who i have known for a couple of years email each other each day for general chit chat. somehow today, while i am emailing him at work, we both just confessed some quite deep feelings. not about each other, but just things we have kept hidden from one another. its kind of worrying because theres a reason we've both kept these things secret. we have skimmed over the top of things like this before, but for some reason never 'really' talked. i can see this friendship changing. i cant quite tell if it'll be for better or worse though.

So, I started reading this blog not too long ago thinking it would be more interesting than something like Perez Hilton. Skip over who got drunk where and dive right into the hypocrisy. Thus far though about 1/2 of the posts are debatable at best and some are just idiotic, like they didn't look up the definition of "hypocrite" before calling everybody one. :( [eta: I was told it covered CEOs, politicians, and celebs but was focused on things that actually mattered. Turns out it focuses on how much money Paris Hilton spends. Lame.]

Does anyone know any good programs that can convert m4b files into mp3 or similar? I was just given some audiobooks but without iTunes, they won't play on my computer and it's driving me NUTS.

Why is TQC full of rude douchebags?
Do you ever find yourself replying to a comment in another comm with a snarky TQC style reply?

And because I haven't seen one lately, will you show me your desktop/wallpaper??<---this is the important question here!!

ETA: Why is my computer so hot?! Its a HP laptop, it hurts to touch it is so hot!

Dr. TQC,

I have been congested for going on three weeks now.  It's extremely uncomfortable and I'd like to be able to breathe normally again.  I've also started snoring because of it.  How do I fix it?

For those of you who don't care, how's your hair styled right now?

So, when boiling water, do you add hot water to the pan or cold water to start it out?
Someone once told me to always start with cold water because it comes to a boil quicker, that just does not make sense to me though.

I was driving by the cemetary and this guy was leaning out of his car to put flowers on a grave.  The weather was 56F, 10 degrees warmer than yesterday, no clouds and rain so the weather didn't hinder him from going outside for a minute.

Why do you think he stayed in his car?

On a scale of 1-10, how cool would it be to work at a cemetary or funeral home?

When you do a nice gesture for someone (a card, flowers, a sweet text message, whatever), do you do it purely to make them happy or does it bother you if they never mention it or thank you for it?

White chocolate is not actually chocolate and should be called something else. y/n?

pizza

Papa John's just delivered a pizza to my house.
Thus prompting me to ask these all important pizza questions...


1. Do you dab your pizza to de-grease?
2. Do you eat the crust?
3. Do you sprinkle anything on it? (Like garlic powder, red pepper flakes, etc.)
4. How many slices do you typically eat?
5. What is your beverage of choice to accompany your cheesey delight?
6. What is your favorite chain pizza?
7. Do you like/eat cold pizza?

I'm afraid I'm going to pass out before the premiere of Scrubs in two hours. What can I do in order to prevent this?

What did/are you going to have for dinner? Who did you eat with and where (table, couch, restaurant ..)?

Since I just got into an argument about this....

Do you have any problems with Vista?
What kind of problems do you have?
How would/did you go about fixing these problems (if they're fixable?)?

My computer since getting SP1 for Vista has not been able to 'sleep'-it just freezes midway through and I have to force shut it down to get anywhere. Also it has trouble sometimes with the keyboard. Like I'll be typing and suddenly I'm in another window. Or it will move the cursor back into different sentence or word, so I end up tying in the middle of them (quite irritating really). And there is one program that (Cyberlink Youcam--the webcam that came installed on my computer) that pops up on my desktop every time it is restarted. I've deleted it countless times and emptied the recycle bin, but it is always there the next startup. And right after these problems started I got Vista Ultimate because I was told that would fix them, but it didn't.

If you read that blob paragraph, how should I fix my computer issues?

Are there any songs that you really like, but you don't like the music video for them?

I like 1,2,3,4 by Feist, but I think the video for it is really stupid.

Collapse )

This music video is stupid and pointless y/n?

Edit: Ok, I've added a cut. Sorry if I pissed anyone off.
