Idea: Friend Playlist

I just use a Mac to up my hipster cred.

So I got this idea when I was washing dishes and listening to my iTunes about three minutes ago– a band came up on the playlist that a friend back home had suggested to me. I wouldn’t have normally listened to this band, but I did because it reminded me of my friend. Then I got to thinking–

I’m so far from home and miss all the friends I left behind, so wouldn’t it be a great idea if multiple friends suggested multiple songs and then my iTunes would be chock full of songs that make me smile and remember everyone? WOULDN’T IT?!?!

So, I leave it to you, friends: suggest songs, bands, books, anything in the comments section, and soon there’ll be a little piece of D.C. in L.A.

And new friends– you can do it, too 🙂
