Trip hop song with male vocalist stuck in my head

Downtempo/Trip Hop/Chillout song stuck in my head in a huge way. It's something I've heard dozens of times before but now, of course, I can't identify it. It's got a male vocalist, possibly British-sounding. The song is somewhat popular - it may be on a bunch of compilations and chillout/downtempo internet radio stations. [more inside]

Name That Song

Identify this song please! I'm making a mixtape of songs with distinctive vocal flourishes and there's a snippet going through my head that I just can't place. This song's building to a crescendo and the singer yells "Whoo!" followed by three piano chords that sound almost like percussion (bum! bum! bum!) before continuing on. [more inside]

What Bird Did I See?

Need help identifying a bird I saw today. I was driving along Jordan Lake, near Chapel Hill, NC. A large bird flying over the lake folded its wings in slightly, and glided down, in a slight partial spiral, to the lake surface and grabbed a fish. I'd guess I was about 200 feet away. I've seen eagles and osprey at the lake. This bird was that size, with a very large wingspan. Coloring: Appeared black; may have been dark brown. Markings: White on the trailing underside of the wings, at least one-half the width of the wing, beginning at the body and continuing approx. 80 percent of the way to the wing tip. I didn't notice any other markings.

What is that delicious wallpaper paste?

This morning I had this really nice Israeli spread - and I hesitate to use that word because it's quite liquidy - which I would like to know more about. What's in it? Can I buy it anywhere else? What is it called? The name is comething like "chrinach," it's considered a student food (cheap, easy to make), and it has a salty, maybe malty or yeasty taste. Making it is easy: start with a concentrated paste, add water little by little; add salt, garlic. Has the color and texture of wallpaper paste, but tastes awesome. Goes great with bread, vegetables. What is it!?

Can you ID this book?

Help me identify a book I read in the mid-90's! All I remember about it is that it was a crime novel, about a guy on death row, and the big surprise at the end of the book is that he and his lawyer (an ostensibly straight married man) wind up having some kind of sexual encounter before the client is executed. At least I think that is what happened - I could be making up some of the details. But hopefully this is enough to go on - thanks, book sleuths!
