Publix Premium Hula Hula Macadamia Ice Cream

Publix Premium Hula Hula Macadamia Ice Cream

This is Hawaiian ice cream. The illustration on the carton is that of a girl dancing in a pink paradise with flowers and glitter. The taste doesn’t live up to the Hula hoopla, but it’s a sweet treat, perhaps a bit too sweet for some. The word “sugar” is on the ingredients list four times. The blend consists of brittled macadamias, which “grow in pretty boquets”, “whipped-cream clouds” and caramel from “Caramel Bay”.

audio review : Numbers ( song ) … Booka Shade

The title refers to phone numbers presumably, which, even in a world of internet-based social media, remains the most efficient way to keep in contact with a stranger you meet one night at a dance club. People generally go to have fun, of course, but, with all those warm sweaty bodies gyrating about, there’s often sexual tension in the air; perhaps even romantic allure.

“I really want you,” her or his eyes say to him or her; the concept is inclusive to both straight and gay relationships, though the chorus consists of two male voices; “Make me forget I’m just like everybody else.” That last part is ambiguous, but the song peaks with kinetic bliss; a little too early for its total length; for about twenty seconds near the two-minute mark.
