I found this linked from a blog on MSNBC.com today:  an explanation of the varieties of Diet Coke
I found this strangely fascinating – particularly for the fact that
Diet Coke is a pre-New Coke, artificially sweetened version of the
“New” Coke recipe.  Katastrophes & Mr. Pink Eyes, this one’s for you.

This morning I started working on my “going up” and “coming back” mixes
for the Lake ’05 trip.  I like what I’m seeing.  Mr. Pink Eyes
seems to have a more coherent theme than I do, as he shared that much
of his going-there mix is EBM/Industrial whereas mine have everything
from Kasabian to remixes of Cosmicity to Ella Fitzgerald, but hey.  I’ll post the mix-lists later tonight, hopefully. (more…)
