Can't remember the name of a female vocalist, mid-1980's, ethereal quality to her voice, jazz - torch song kinda style. I think she had a one-word name and sharp, almost Egyptian features, light chocolate skin. Beautiful intonation but I can remember no words.

Help me find this magazine article. Sometime in the last couple of years there was a critical review of contemporary female jazz singers in which some of the more successful singers (e.g., Diana Krall I think) were unfavorably compared to lesser known singers. Article might have been in the New Yorker or the Atlantic, but I'm not sure.

There was a single released in mid 2004 by a young white pop-act rapper, who we were told was going to be the next new female eminem. She may have sung about being a serial killer, but that didn't suit here, more like MC Britney S, then she disappeared without trace. Who was she?

I recently watched a home movie of this girlie being all naked and stuff but i was utterly perplexed by the number "36" written in large letters across her ass. I assumed it was just some personal kinky/weirdness till i happened upon a vintage BDSM photo of a young girl with 36 'spanked' onto her ass. Can any one explain the significance of '36'?

How did we evolve separate genders? I assume it happened pretty early on, since most animals have a male and female, but wouldn't it have had to happen to lots of things at once for it to actually work?

Why are sexually promiscuous men "studs" and sexually promiscuous women "sluts"? And on that note, is it studly or slutty to hook up with one person on a Monday and go out with a different person on a Tuesday? Just asking.
