I wrote the following paragraph as part of a post:

An example of this is the song Trying To Get The Feeling Again by the Carpenters. The song was considered for inclusion in their album Horizon but was rejected. Decades later, a work lead (essentially a vocal draft of the song) featuring Karen Carpenter's vocals for the song was found. Production of the song was completed and included in the compilation album Interpretations. The Carpenters' version of the song features the original lyrics of the song (which were significant changed in Barry Manilow's hit version of the song). To me, this is an example of a song that likely would never had been heard, but is a song that has become one of my favorite songs.

Thanks -- I just went and ordered this CD.
Information on the album: Interpretations in a 25th anniversary collection of songs recorded by the Carpenters that were written by others, and includes both hits and album tracks. This includes the following songs:
  • Rainy Days And Mondays (written by Roger Nichols And Paul Williams)
  • Calling Occupants Of Interplanetary Craft (written by KLATUU)
  • Superstar (written by Leon Russell And Bonnie Bramlett)
  • I Believe You (written by Don & Dick Addrisi)

Now, to take this post off topic:

I wonder how people discovered which items, when combined, became edible food stuffs that are better than the individual components? For example, how did people determine that combining wheat and water would result in bread? Were there several failed attempts before discovering a successful combination? As an example, did they try chopped leaves and water first?

Though I found most of the 2014 Godzilla movie to be rather dull, I found myself cheering at the start of this scene:


Honestly, given how modern American adaptations prefer to make things seem more "realistic"... Regardless of how unrealistic the subject matter is to begin with... I was worried that the G-man wouldn't be allowed to use his trademark atomic breath in this movie.

I'm glad that a major manufacturer has realized that OLEDs do NOT make good watch faces.

Explain, please? That looks like a cool watch. (was that a positive or a negative example?)

It's Sony's new Smartband Talk. Definitely a positive example.

Meandering through life, simply meandering,
Tinkering with this and that--technology.
It's simple you see--technology speaks to me,
In a wordless way, what it truly needs--
Love.

Everything needs love and attending to--
Everything--including technology.
I spoke to my brother about it the other day.
He understood; he's an inventor and programmer,
And I suspect... he speaks to technology too.

"It's a rare gift," he says.
Hardly anyone understands, though...

A female tinkerer.

Would it be on topic or off topic to ask what the main topic of the thread is supposed to be, and if it's on topic does that mean that I would be on topic when I'm supposed to be off topic or off topic when I'm supposed to be on topic and therefore actually on topic which means I'm off topic...

With all of the remakes of movies that we've recently seen, could we see a wave of remakes of the worst movies in history? Imagine Plan Nine From Outer Space remade in an edgy manner for a modern audience. Santa Claus Conquers The Martians remade with a militaristic Santa Claus so the movie accurately reflects its name. Can't Stop The Music (which originally starred The Village People) as a sci-fi movie featuring aliens who attack Earth with a never-ending playlist of the worst music ever recorded.
