When I was in high school my Dad totally put Napster on our computer, I still have mix CDs from then. Some of them could be titled "I'm so Angsty I Wear Black Lipstick" or "Nobody Understands Me So I Shaved Half My Head" or "My Life Is Actually Pretty Privileged But Since I'm a Teenager I Act Like It's Terrible."
Not the catchiest titles but you get the idea.
And then of course as you know Justin Timberlake got sued and then danced a lot to Trent Reznor's score and got drunk with David Fincher. Or something like that.
And then Lars Ulrich, who doesn't have enough money, started suing little old ladys for downloading Enter Sandman. So Napster imploded.
But now we have a new option. Spotify. Spotify is a streaming music service that works with the artists so you can't get in trouble. You can share music and playlists. You can even take it with you on your mobile. But sadly as of right now it is invitation only. You know, so they can make it seem fancy and elite.
And who do you know more fancy and more elite then me? Its a rhetorical question okay!! Rude.
I've got five. Five invitations for you. So if you haven't already been invited and want some free music, drop me a comment. Then we can trade playlists. For example "I Am An Old Lady Mom Who Likes to Pretend I'm a Hipster." or "Music That I Listen to While Pretending to Work But Actually I'm Blogging."
What are you going to name your first playlist?
