In preparation for the party which is now less than a fortnight away, and running out of free weekends before the first, my wife and I redoubled our efforts and really packed a punch these past two days (including staining both sides of the fence today - I'm so thankful I only work three days this week, cause that was not easy). Saturday we completely emptied the garage and moved everything we could into two sections of the attic: Long term, and short term storage. This was an all-day event that started after our meeting up with the Tribal Council to paint a widows room that morning, and ending with drax0r and I celebrating the completion of the first phase of the "galinda822 in Texas" event, aka Party of the Decade with drinks in hand.

You see, as my wife and I were filling the attic, (and because she didn't want to maneuver my heavy trunk and footlocker up the steps as was later disclosed to me) she suggested I set up some music across from the buffet table in the garage. Plans started formulating right then and there. I set up my two Infinity RS625 speakers in each corner, but by the time drax0r brought over the amp he was going to loan me for the party, I'd already decided my 2000 CD's were going to be inadequate for the event.

So I attached my iTunes volume to that PowerMac G4, hooked up an old Sun monitor, dug out a yellowing two-button Microsoft scroll mouse, ran a 100-foot Cat-5 cable out to the garage, and hooked the computer up to the amp. The results are quite impressive I don't mind admitting. It sounds fantastic! I wish after the party I could set that amp and those speakers in my office! It took drax0r and I several hours to get everything perfect, but we were in no hurry, as there was bourbon to drink, and cigars to smoke. This is going to be one nice setup. And only in Texas can you have an outdoor garage party in December ;)

The keg of Shiner Bock did arrive, I was told by different people throughout the day who happened by Anna Fine Wines & Spirits this weekend - they're keeping it iced for me until just hours before the party begins. But not everyone wants to hear endless scores at a kegger. So I need your help.

What do you want to listen to?

I have a lot of CD's in a wide variety of genre's, and there will undoubtedly be a lot of impromptu song-changing, but I thought it would be nice to have a pre-defined playlist to encompass something for everyone during the time the console is unmanned. So if you're coming, what would you like to listen to? And please, be specific.
