audio review : I’ll Call U Back ( song ) … Erykah Badu

At just under two minutes long, this may be more of an album (mixtape) interlude than an actual song. Either way it serves as one of Erykah Badu’s best. I’ll Call U Back, the busy party prepper says to someone on the phone over a lush soundscape produced by Zach Witness. If there’s a flaw, it’s that the beeps go on a bit too long at the end.

audio review : But You Caint Use My Phone ( mixtape ) ... Erykah Badu

Hot Wheels

Hot Wheels

The fact that this cereal doesn’t come with an actual Hot Wheels car, as a throwback to the days of getting free prizes inside the box, is a missed opportunity if not a damn shame. Still it’s fun enough to eat. The taste of the tires is akin to lemon Trix, but of course the marshmallows, which are also skimped on, are the best part.
