1000 Minutes: Andy

The idea is simple – we’re both stranded with an mp3 player that never needs charging and can never be updated again.  These players hold exactly 1000 Minutes of music – bit rates and file size don’t matter.  We’re not going to be rescued, and we’re not together, so we can’t each load up different songs and share.

The question: What do each of us do with that 1000 Minutes?
