Launch into the summer heat with classic cuts of soul and funk courtesy of Waxpoetics. The new issue features tracks from the Cinematic Orchestra, Lee Fields (my personal fave), Spoonie Gee, Pete Rock and more delicious do-right beats. Indulge in one-minute samples before you get your soundtrack to summer.

Yes, we had an earthquake in Southern California yesterday. Yes, buildings shook. Yes, there were several aftershocks. Yes, this quake registered a 5.4 on the Richter scale.

Remember how you felt the first time you saw that shopping bag flying around in American Beauty?

Lay off the double mocha for a hot minute and enjoy the finer things in life, like blowing up balloons.
