Deplete Me, a new music album written and recorded by the Petroleum Pop Princess Baroness Mistress, Kristen Baumliér, was released on July 4, 2010, and features 9 songs that focus on the past, present and future of energy. Baumliér currently lives in Cleveland, OH, in Cuyahoga County, which is currently ranked fourth among the U.S. counties with the highest concentration of carbon dioxide pollution.
Deplete Me is comprised of 9 original songs written and performed by Kristen Baumliér that explore topics such as our dependence on petroleum, oil history, energy supply and demand, and global warming. The songs are humorous, with sexual innuendos about petroleum and catchy phrases sprinkled throughout the songs. In Conservation, Baumliér sings, “Conservation!! It’s gotta hurt a little bit, but I learn to like it.” In Deplete Me she sings in a sultry voice, “ I want to take a sip, petroleum unzip. The tank is full tonight, my shoes untied.”

In cuts like "Sea Plants and Animals Die and Sink Man (Or How Oil Is Made)" and "Oil Embargo," Baumlier sings about the evils of oil production and complains about "thirsty SUVs."
