Note: This was originally posted on an internal work blog. Then I remembered that my co-workers aren’t the only people with digital music libraries.
Tomorrow morning I will get into a 16′ rental truck with a broken radio and begin a drive that will be a minimum of 17 hours over 2 days (with my mother driving in her car behind me). Not having anticipated this, I have the wrong laptop with me — no music on it — and my iphone only has a playlist on it from my last drive with Morgan (in other words, mostly Glee soundtrack, ouch).
If anyone is bored today and wants to throw together some music and put it on dropbox or some such for me so I could download it tonight and make a tiny dent in the driving monotony tomorrow and Monday, that would be awesome, and I’d owe you one. I’ll love just about anything except contemporary country, Christian rock**, death metal, or obnoxious top 40 like Ke$ha.*** Bonus if anyone does a playlist that encourages singalongs (it’s a good way to stay alert on the road).
Once I get today’s packing/loading done I will be on an expedition to find a place within 60 miles to buy a decent portable speaker (oh, x-mini, why did I leave you in my car at home?) and an ipod I can use for the trip (so my phone won’t die out, will need it for internet and phone), so I will have gigs and gigs (well, probably 16) of room to fill.
If you want to send me music, you can email a link to your dropbox file to me at jane at wordpress.org. Or, if you have music to share but no dropbox space left, I could give you access to my folder.
* In exchange for road trip tunes I will continue to do my part to keep WordPress pretty and useful.
** Though actual gospel music is okay — did you know that once upon a time I sang tenor in a gospel choir?
*** G6, my a$$.
