Songs about California falling into the ocean.

Sat, 06 Aug 2011 15:27:51 -0800

Looking for songs about or featuring California falling into the ocean. Examples:


It seems to be a motif I run across often, but can't remember songs other than these. Any more?



Suggestions for a lite RPG?

Fri, 25 Jun 2010 11:27:50 -0800

What's a good lite P'n'P RPG? I have a group of friends (3-4 inc. me) who usually come by monthly for beer and board games, the favorites being Arkham Horror, Dominion and Battlestar Gallactica. I was thinking of trying to get an RPG session going and picked up recent editions of Pathfinder and Call of Cthulhu. When I presented them to the group it was clear that the kind of work that goes into a full scale RPG wasn't something they were interested in. None of us has touched an RPG for more than 20 years.

I'm looking for suggestions for a lite RPG that can be played in a couple of hours. It also needs to support a GM and 2 players minimum. I'd also be a first time GM, having always been a player, so something with easy prep work would be nice. I'm looking for something that we can play through that will either get them more interested in a full-fledged RPG or let me know that this group is better off sticking to our usual board games.



Opera for kids.

Thu, 19 Nov 2009 10:00:43 -0800

Opera suggestions for children. I have a four-year-old boy who recently heard opera-styled vocals and was immediately mesmerized by it. He was also entranced by YouTube videos I found by just searching for opera.

I know next to nothing about opera and I need suggestions for pieces that would interest a kid. I'd prefer bouncier, lighter pieces and let him save the darker, more dramatic selections for when he's an emo teen.

YouTube examples are welcome, but what I'm really looking for is audio, either single mp3s or full performances.



How does HuffPo append URLs to copied text?

Fri, 25 Sep 2009 10:05:39 -0800

I noticed today that text copied from articles on The Huffington Post appends the article URL when pasted and I'm wondering how it's done. Here's an example of copying and pasting text from the current front page story of the G20 meeting:

The three leaders, in their dramatic joint statement that overshadowed the G-20 economic summit here, hoped the disclosure would increase pressure on the global community to impose new sanctions on Iran if it refuses to stop its nuclear program.

The "Read more at:..." portion never appeared on the page.

Repro steps:

1) Copy any random paragraph from a HuffPo story.
2) Paste elsewhere.

I'm using FireFox 3.5.3 on Windows 7. I don't see this behavior when copying from other sites.



How can I get one of these eyeball webcams without reading Japanese?

Tue, 09 Dec 2003 18:08:11 -0800

For obvious reasons, I want this. The problem is that I don't read Japanese. I've tried Google, but searching "eyeball webcam" doesn't really narrow down results.

Is there a caring, Japan residing MeFite that can help me accomplish this goal?
