Play that funky music

Anyone tried making playlists for a 3.5 hour road trip where everyone has different taste in music? It's no easy feat, that's for sure.

Which is why I'm awake at 11:42pm worrying about what to play in the car to suit the different times of the day, different energy levels, weather, etc etc. It doesn't seem like a big deal. Just get some sleep, and don't worry about it, surely you can do fine without music for only 3 hours, right? I usually find that if it's there, it's not a major "wow you have music!" type of thing, but when there is no music and you start fiddling with the radio trying to find music and not getting any reception because you're in the middle of nowhere, the "I KNEW I should have made those CDs" feeling hits.

I can't find any more Samoan songs, and the ones I've found are named Unknown [x] by Artist [abc def]. This will be interesting. Hopefully, more of the "aww, interesting!" type and not the "umm...yea...INteresting" type.

Late night OTL babbling FTL!

The worst thing is that isn't "background music"; it's the main silence-killer when it's in the car. Ah well, I'm sure you did fine :D

This reminds me of Jesse, he does the same thing. Very courteous I say.

For the record, that was one of the traits he copied from me :P
