LOVE - Sam's Town

While studying for mid terms and what not, I usually rely on shuffle to dust off some tracks in the library that haven't been played in a while. I happened to come across the Killer's album Sam's Town and was once again reminded how great an album it really is, front to back. Panned by critics, the album seemed to be written off as a classic sophomore effort from the band. All I know is that it was the soundtrack of nearly every lunchtime excursion back in grade twelve, I've heard "When You Were Young" about a million times in Rock Band, and its all still awesome. This entire post was inspired by the alternate Sam's Town version off of the bands third album Sawdust, which after many listens this week is slowly creeping into "one of the best songs in my library" status. Heres that song, and some of the classics

HATE - Lack of Water Fountains

I was in line at Tim Horton's today on campus, browsing through the Gazette, and happened upon an article raising concern over the lack of water fountains these days, and I have to say I agree. If there were a better designed fountain though, more of a tap. I understand there are sinks on campus, but the stigma attached to "tap water" is probably too much for most people to deal with. If it were all metal and sanitary looking, like most water fountains are, and were able to fill re-usable containers quickly, I'm thinking it would be a pretty solid call. I'm just so damn thirsty.
