boxed wine.

i'm not talking franzia, though i'm not dissing it either, i'm talking about good wine that just happens to come in a box. well, actually it's called tetrapak, and it's not only 100% recyclable, but it also stores wine in the same optimal conditions as glass bottles and costs less. many brands are offering lines 'bottled' in tetrapak, one worthy of mention is 'french rabbit,' and may i reccommend the pinot noir. behold the power of innovation.

a cappella pop songs.

the purity of a cappella music is intriguing to me. there's no chance of being over-produced, and the feeling of the lyrics and music really come through with a cappella tunes. to hear pop versions of great songs like 'such great heights' by the postal service, performed here by green envy from tulane university, is refreshing.

bud light lime.

bud light is seriously low on my list of 'favorite beers.' as a matter of fact, it's in my bottom three, along with schlitz and st. ides. ab made a ballsy move trying to out-do the not-so-successful miller chill. this feat should not be difficult being that miller chill tastes like the sweaty bathwater of yokozuna. their ballsy move paid off. bud light with lime is uber-refreshing and delicious. summer 2008 beverage of the season, checkmate.
