the greatest black cherry soda?

I love obscure sodas from small companies. Black cherry soda was a special treat in my family.
Recently, I did a study to find the best black cherry soda. To qualify, it had to be from a small company, bottled in glass, contain real cherry, and taste good.

I also gave special preference to local companies. You see the winner above, Boylan's black cherry soda, with one of its buddies, Boylan's seltzer. Boylan's is bottled in New Jersey.

Mika - Love Today - live at Coachella 2007 (okeastron)

I discovered Mika by listening to the London Times Sounds podcast, which may be a good way to learn about new music--though it isn't interesting at all if you already know the artist. Pete Pahides is a terrible interviewer. I suspect that's the point, though-- the Times Sounds Podcast is really a sort of postmodern, Colbert Report style joke on fatuous interviewers...

Anyway, I love this song by Mika.

Well, I'm officially obsessed.

I promised myself I wouldn't check his poll numbers this weekend.

But I failed.
