Birthday Music #10: Teri

Name: Teri

Girls Rock Camp Donation Tally: $60

Relationship: Teri and I worked together for a very brief period and are Facebook friends, but we've never hung out. Unless I've terrified her with a post I may or may not have made to her Facebook page suggesting we get a drink, that may change soon.

How Did We Meet: Teri was a super star media planner/buyer at OMD before she left to become a super star media planner/buyer at Merlino Bauer Media. In other words, we were both corporate slaves (my take, not necessarily hers) — sharing office space in downtown Seattle — until we decided to strike out on our own. She did it first, one of the folks on the list of those I followed who made me think I could do it too.

Something about Teri: She has pretty red hair and her kids do too. And, judging by her Facebook page, she spends an inordinate amount of time attending their sporting events.

Teri's Playlist: Teri described it as a collection of songs that make her happy: jazz, boys with guitars, girls with louder guitars, hip hop, R&B, smoldering ladies and my very first SpongeBob song.

Delivery: Teri mailed her CD to Oliver's Twist. This is Robert opening it. We were anxious. Well, I was; I think Robert just wanted to cut something.

Favorite (Nostalgic) Tracks: "Tell Me Something Good," Chaka Khan and Rufus, and "Monkey Man," Rolling Stones (Why does this song make me think of David Duchovny?)

Favorite (New to Me) Tracks: "A Change is Gonna Come," Leela James and "Shit List," L7

Time's running out, but here's the address if you want to send me music too:

Alison's Birthday Music
c/o Oliver's Twist
6822 Greenwood Avenue
Seattle WA 98103

Remember, for every playlist I receive this month, I am making a $5 donation to Girls Rock Camp.

More Birthday Music posts to come…

where are the more birthday posts to come? I think my CD to you was lost in the mail. It's always a bummer when you throw a chunk of your heart into a mailbox and it gets lost.
