D. Party hardy
E. Cry
F. Driving

By that I mean jam out like a fool with headphones on, not go to clubs or anything. I think I get adrenaline rushes from how excited music can make me get.

Either that or I'm very sad and looking to be pushed to the point of crying so I can just release.

I always have something playing while driving. Keeps me calm and focused.

So I guess if I had to pick your given options, B?

A and B
In the bathroom, on my way to work, while doing homework, sometimes while I read, while cleaning, etc..

A because I need to chill my head sometimes and Yirumas piano music releases my stress.

I try to stay away from music at it usually ends up in me wasting my time. If I'm doing a long assignment or programming I'll usually chuck on some tunes though.

I'd say multi tasking i guess. Sometimes i will listen to music for hours while drinking and web surfing. Often looking at pictures of girls or something. But i dont do that anywhere near like i used to. Pretty rare these days but i used to be able to do that all night.
I used to listen to music when i would draw but i haven't done a drawing for probably 10-15 years.
I listen to music when i drive, unless its a really short drive.
I used to write lyrics and rap so i would often listen to music while i wrote. I made beats on my computer as well.
Love listening to music whilst playing pool but i hardly play these days, used to play often.
Used to listen to music all the time hanging with friends when i was younger. Back in the day we would all make mixed tapes and we all collected cds and we always listened to music getting stoned or drunk or what not. These days we sometimes have nights where we all get drunk and take turns playing music on you tube, often watching music videos.
Just before, earlier today i put some music on while i was cooking dinner.

I do like to listen to music while i relax. Sometimes i will just lay on the couch with music on. Also i use music to bloke out annoying things like loud neighbours and power tools, lawn mowers, constant dog barking, etc. So i use it to block shit out or get revenge even lol.

Music used to be a massive part of my life. It still kind of is but not like it was. I guess most music sucks now a days compared to back in the day but also i dont hang or go out or party much anymore.

When I'm listening to music, I'm either doing more of creating work for my graphic design classes, drawing for fun, or running on my treadmill.

A and B for me as well. I used to be able to do C when I was younger, but I can't anymore.

A , B, and C sometimes eventually. D when I'm bored and isn't covered by A, B, or C.

I want something that lights the PASSION!!! in me.

:( I need something that gets me motivated otherwise I just can't get myself into a working mode.


Also I have to have music on when I'm driving. If I'm talking to someone, it's super distracting for me. If I'm not listening to anything, I'm super nervous and jumpy. Japanese music is really great for this because it's so familiar to me, but I also don't understand the lyrics and can't dwell on it. Songs in english tend to send me to philosopher mode, and the break up ones just depress me. I feel a lot calmer when there's music playing and I think I do a better job of identifying what I need to pay attention to and what needs to fade away in order to not overwhelm me.

More often than not, I listen to music when I'm riding by myself on the bus to places like work and stuff.

Usually I'm cleaning the house or hitting the booze hard when I listen to music nowadays.

I usually listen to music when I'm reading or writing. I listened to pretty much the entire discography of Pink Floyd while reading Ready Player One (Pink Floyd>>>>>>>>>>>>>RPO) and a ton of Bill Evans records while reading Haruki Murakami books. Just started reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and listening to the discography of Godspeed! You Black Emperor.

Other than that, I always have music on while driving so I can sing at the top of my lungs.


Godspeed is great. Most post-rock I've heard is actually. Look up Mogwai and 65daysofstatic!

To answer the question though, yes. I've been listening and playing music almost my whole life. Pretty much every time I get the chance I'm listening to something. I go through genre phases often. Not too long ago it was jazz and orchestral. Lately I've been listening to a lot of synthwave.

I usually multitask when I'm listening to music. For example, I'll listen to music and usually be studying or surfing the internet for information.

Relax or sleep.

I need to take "eye breaks" as I call them.
