Always been a huge music fan (of the stored terabytes variety). But I suspect my methods went out of date around 2008 (rip my CDs, rip friends' CDs, otherwise get hands on mp3s, rename everything manually on iTunes, keep everything in organized folders on large external hard drives; I still use the 160 GB iPod classic exclusively). I further suspect I speak for a good few people here. I feel that these outdated methods are holding me back from discovering good new music.

Händel, one of the two greatest baroque composers, and one of the greatest composers of all time, seems to have lived a very discreet personal life. All biographies I've read never mention anything about a love life. My curiosity grew out of a comment made by a classical music critic on the radio that "Händel never married and led a very private personal life. His closest friends, however, were known to be gay." Note: I'm not sure whether this question is on topic here. Feel free to closevote it if it isn't.

As the title says I'm searching text for the song "Mossano - Indianotech"(youtube) , I'm searching for the language, the text, and if possible translation of the text. I've found some results in the internet, but they doesn't make any logical sense. P.S. Sorry if this isn't the right place to ask this question.

Titanic is on the box, Film 4, and I've always wondered (albeit this is the first time I have followed through with a Google) why such an exchange of dialogue happens between them. Rose introduces Jack: J.J, Madeleine, this is Jack Dawson Astor: Hello Jack, are you of the Boston Dawsons? Who are the Boston Dawsons, and why is this even important? I'm figuring, initially of course (as Google, hasn't been helpful actually) that this is just a way of possibly 'getting to know someone', but what difference does it make where he is from? Jack's reply: No, the Chippewa Falls Dawsons...

You know the one I'm talking about. A cartoon character is running, and then suddenly they have to stop, so they dig their heels in, lean back, and skid to a stop, accompanied by a rapid-fire series of high-pitched staccato vrt vrt vrt vrt sounds. Does anyone know how that sound is created?

In the climax of Cast Away, Chuck (Tom Hanks) writes a note on the Fedex box which states that this package has saved his life. How exactly did that package save his life? If I am correct, he never opens that package during the course of the film. Does it mean that he wants to deliver that package, which gives him a reason to live? Or have I missed something?

The opening to Titanic shows Rose "Dawson" watching a TV news report of Brock Lovett's ship searching the Titanic wreckage. She then makes a phone call to Lovett during which a private conversation ensues. The next scene shows Rose arriving on Lovett's boat by helicopter, with pets and many personal affects. Why did Lovett invite her to come in person? Clearly Lovett believed she had valuable information about where he might find the diamond he was seeking. But why was her visit to his boat necessary to exchange such information? Given that she possessed the diamond at the time of the phone call, she must have been either very vague over the phone, or she outright lied to Lovett.

In Stranger Things, the story of each character's search for Will Byers seems to be represented thematically differently. Like Jim Hopper's search follows a conspiracy thriller approach, Joyce Byers's search follows a horror/supernatural theme, Jonathan Byers's search was more like monster horror, and Mike and gang's search represents more of a mystery theme. Was that intentionally done this way and is my interpretation right for each character's theme?

CNN Headline News used to be a channel which, as the name suggests, presented the headlines of news. Later on it changed its focus to covering crime stories, which is why it changed its name to HLN. But I'm interested in CNN Headline News in its original form. From what I remember, in the old days, the network didn't just present news headlines. Instead it alternated: for some short period of time it would show headlines presented by CNN anchors, and then for an equal period of time it would air a show called "Comcast Newsmakers", a TV show produced by the cable company Comcast which interviewed newsmakers like politicians.
