This week's links. Enjoy.
The highly anticipated premiere issue of Rue magazine is out! And it was well worth the wait — I for one am still swooning over Victoria of sfgirlbybay's gorgeous home. Make yourself some tea and prepare to be happy.

Sweet Paul Magazine
And more reading goodness! The fall issue of the always delicious Sweet Paul magazine is out — follow the link for a great preview of what's in store in the print version. Lots of great recipes and crafts — and gorgeous photography and styling as always.
Soda Pop Stop
Check out this great short documentary about a grocery store in Los Angeles that only carries soda pop — over 500 kinds, no less, and most without high fructose corn syrup. The variety is dazzling — and it's an education to find out how many types there are out there. I for one would love to try the delicately pink-coloured rose soda, made with real rose leaves. Sounds amazing. Via kottke.
Fall Music Preview
NPR has a great roundup of some of this fall's most anticipated albums — and tracks for you to listen to as well. Looking forward myself to new Brian Eno and Tricky.
