I’m really late with this one, but here we go. You Are The Way You Are (instrumental) – Marvin Gaye Master Teacher – Erykah Badu (the 2nd half is like a warm spring after a hard winter.) Buttercup – Jackson 5 Under The Cherry Moon Scene? – Prince? (I really don’t know how to label [...]

Saw Chris Rock’s Good Hair over the weekend, along with some critiques of it at the beginning of the week.
