Carol asks…

How do I remove step marks from a dried stained hardwood floor?

I applied a stain to my oak hardwood floor and it’s pretty much dry and discovered some little steps from my cat on the wood (don’t know who let her in the room…)I still didn’tapplied the poly finish. How do I remove/cover/hide those steps? Thank you in advance for your help!

New Niche Finder answers:

Since I love my cat, I would leave them as added character to the floor but that’s just me. Having spent many years building and repairing kitchen cabinets, I have found it better to put a coat of finish on something like this, let it dry and then touch up the spots with a artist brush or a cloth sometimes using the stain pigment solids that are in the bottom of the can before you shake it. To get to the solids shake the unopened can then let it sit for several hours upside down. When you turn the can over and remove the lid, the stain solids will be on the inside of the lid. After the touched up areas are dry apply finish over them to seal them. If you have any flooring material left over, apply stain to a scrap piece and duplicate the foot prints with your finger or even use the cat to leave prints on the board, let it dry then experiment with touching it up. Do enough test spots to give you the opportunity to try different techniques. Many times if you try to touch up the bare stain, you will remove the original stain instead, leaving a larger bare spot rather than a suitable touch up. Blending colors of stain between coats of finish is a normal practice in the cabinet biz when a piece of wood on a door won’t take color because of density or tight grain or the door has finger prints left when it was picked up while the stain was wet which is similar to Kitty’s foot prints. I understand a floor isn’t the same as a cabinet door but it’s still the same type of problem and I would address it in the same manner.

Mark asks…

Who in your opinion is the hottest musician of all time?

give me a band name if they belong to one as well.

BQ: Is it possible to like music more if the artist is more attractive?
BQ2: Can you ever like music less if you discover the artist to be very unattractive?

New Niche Finder answers:

Uhhmm… Alex Turner or Andrew Vanwyngarden.

BQ: For me? Not really. I really don’t care as long as I like their music. I’m gonna be hearing their music- not looking at a picture of them.
BQ2: For me? Not really..

Jenny asks…

Are you more likelyto download a FREE song from a new artist?

I’m an unknown singer/songwriter. I am wondering if you are a lot more likely to download a song on your ipod or computer/whatever if it is free, even if you never heard that artist or that song before? Feel free to elaborate or give suggestions?

New Niche Finder answers:

Definitely. I hate those fools who couldn’t impress a dead frog making millions through their songs. Got a song? Go to Jamendo, you’ll find lots of friends,reviews, and if you’re good,fans. You’ll also find collaborators. I (and millions like me) discover most of my music through Jamendo. There are some great artists, and best of all, its all free! On Jamendo, all you’ll need is some friends(to give you initial reviews), a good song and a good title. I can help with the last. If you ever upload a song, tell me, I’ll sure listen it. :)
