Girls of xkcd (and guys if you are fashioned inclined) I need some fashion advice. Where should I shop for new clothes? I am past the teenage trendy stage, but I don't want to dress like a 40 year old either. I have to dress semi professional for work and I don't have a ton of money to spend on clo...

It depends. Are you well versed in music theory? If not, you should find someone to teach it to you. Having a firm knowledge base will help a whole lot in the composition process. Try meditating exercises. Like a Karmic grounding meditation. It seems a little strange to some, but it helps me to sett...

Confession: I have done well my entire life up to this point without trying. Now I'm reaching a point in my life where I have to and I'm worried. I never learned how to study, I just absorbed things. Also, I have very little determination or dedication. I have big dreams with nothing to back them up...

Question: What constitutes proper funeral attire? I have a memorial for my friend's mother to attend tomorrow and I can't figure out what is "okay" to wear. I have black pants, so that's covered, but the only black shirts I have are tank tops that I feel weird about wearing. So...what are ...

How to Read Egyptian Hieroglyphs by Mark Collier and Bill Manley. It has a nice coverage of vocabulary and grammar. It's a revised edition, which is rare for any ancient-subject base scholarly text. A Concise Grammar of Middle Egyptian by Boyo G. Ockinga is pretty intense, but is a full coverage of...

I write sappy poetry and I can read funerary texts from Egypt's middle kingdom with fair proficiency. Self-taught? Partially. Most of it was taught by Dr. Herb Hauffman. He's an awesome old guy.

Hey all, Sat here. I'm a student in a small town. I write sappy poetry and I can read funerary texts from Egypt's middle kingdom with fair proficiency. I play the oboe, trombone, and I am starting guitar. I fence foil too. I grew up in a fairly religious home. My dad was a pastor, but the Nazarene c...

Being female doesn't cause problems in it Eh, even with the plastic plates (I forget what they called them), most of the female fencers I know aren't that pleased when they get hit in the chest.

Best Album Openers?

Personally Black Dog on Led Zeppelin IV and Custard Pie on Physical Graffiti by Led Zeppelin are really powerful openers. Black Dog is such a classic with enough musical variation (albeit slight) to keep me interested for all 4 minutes and 58 seconds. And Custard Pie is dirty. Period. Both make you ...

I started at age 4. I was inundated with Bible stories and Egyptian mythology. And Amelia Bedelia over breakfast. ^^

I distinctly remember sobbing in Kindergarten when our time at the library was up and I had not yet picked out a book out to check out.

My friend Jen made a Tromboon. She's a trombonist and a bassonist, so it was pretty easy. It sounded like a lawnmower. >.<

It's in his Out of the Silent Planet series, which is wonderful, but I can never get far enough into the final book to get interested in it.

Haha, I'm an oboeist, for about seven years now. I play trombone for marching and jazz band and am learning guitar. I used to play piano and I dabble in the fife. ^^
