Germany Exclusive Access

I only recently became a huge fan of mineral sparkling water because my cousin Sandra introduced it to me and my brother while we were in Europe this summer. And I was definitely anti-sparkling water at first. How can anything carbonated NOT be sugar infused??  Then we kind of dying of thirst in the heat of traveling around... and my brother and I got hooked. 

I bought a 12 pack of 1 L Trader Joe sparkling water at first, because it was non-committal. And bought little bottles to drink in class. Then it became a treat every now and then... and then today happened. Today marks the day I tried Gerolsteiner Sparkling Natural Mineral Water. The bubbles felt smaller, the drink more smooth and oh so satisfying. I never knew a water like this before... HOW? HOW did you do it GERMANY? And how could you deny the US of this brilliant brilliant idea:



Dispensable at your finger tips?? Please reconsider and have it available to us.

Finals = New Music Time!

Since its finals time, a lot of energy gets focused on getting the right ambient uplifting music to get through those long hours (and by long hours, I mean long hours of procrastination). At least during reading week for "lighter" studying. Here are some newer albums I've added on my playlist:

Charlotte Gainsbourg, "IRM"

Yeasayer, "Old Blood" I'm really digging "Rome" and "One"

Massive Attack, "Heligoland" ENTIRE ALBUM.

Animal Collective, "Fall Be Kind" EP (Dec, 2009)

Yo La Tengo, "Popular Songs" (kinda older I know but I have trouble keeping up)

SISU "Demon Tapes EP" ;)

Yay yay! Keeping adding more as the night goes on.  And I'm really excited for the new Gorillaz too :) Sunday Coachella... where are you single day tickets?
