    I've been burning cds so I can finally bring my boom box up to my sewing room. Sometimes when I'm listening to music, I'll sing along and do my work or crafts at the same time. Other times I'm so absorbed in what I'm doing, I almost forget that I've got music on until my cd ends, or something else needs my attention, like one of the kids.

    I work at home, and so I go through a LOT of DVDs - particularly the commentary - as it keeps me from having to look at the screen.

    I also listen to a lot of audiobooks or podcasts.

    I like instrumental music when I study -I can't take absolute quiet, but music with words distracts me too much.

    For crafting, I usually watch DVDs, especially TV shows on DVD (Buffy, Angel, Gilmore Girls, etc.), but if I listen to music, I like musicals (Rent, Wicked, Moulin Rouge, etc.) or kind of fast, driving music (Green Day, the Clash, the New Pornographers, etc.), which makes me craft faster ;).

    during sex?

    What do you listen to during intercourse? obviously, it depends on the partner, as well. personally, i like the contrast between the romantic moment and fast punk music (like Mano Negra's patchanka or the Pixies).

But sometimes it just feels nice to listen to something mindless and catchy.

    Do we have any hip-hop fans on here? I wonder. Or did I miss that...
    i like some older "non-bling" hip hop/rap. used to really be into it, until it got far too all about conspicuous consumption.... like tribe called quest, de la soul, digable planets (yay - they'll be recording next month - the first time in 11 years....) pharcyde, public enemy, ice cube.... the only new artist i've liked is mos def. like what i've heard *about* kanye west, but have yet to hear anything.

    as far as top 40, i guess i just like the alternative stuff that has sorta gone that way like gwen stefani - hollaback girl - way mindless and catchy! .... also really like black eyed peas and LOVE prince (but he's not top 40 anymore.) i don't listen to the radio much because i don't like to hear the same thing over and over. and i definitely can't stand modern r&b "i miss my boyfriend" crap.....

    Now that it's Mozart's birthday year (Happy 250th to you dear Wolfgang!) I'm listening to much more classical, while on the computer and in the car.

    I don't see the top 40 stuff as being all that creatively inspiring.

    I like some top 40- but most of it sounds like music I've heard before, in the 80s.
    Still, It has it's place. I happen to love the song 'Toxic' by Britney Spears. It's soooo bad that it's good. It makes me feel like I'm in high school.
    I feel blessed in that for most of my life I've never had to worry about what other people thought vis-a-vis my listening tastes, although in high school I had to pretend to like Jethro Tull.

    I do the DVD with commentary thing also- sort of like learning two things at once.

    At work: listen to CBC Radio One, which is generally left-of-centre talk radio.

    While studying: absolute silenece required (I HEART my earplugs)

    While cooking/cleaning: sometimes CBC radio, sometimes TV on, sometimes music; depends.

    while crafting: if knitting or embroidery, usually put a DVD on. If stuff on the sewing machine, usually radio or music or Massey Lectures or something. (FYI massey lectures are availale for free over the interent and were amazing this year - Steven Lewis is my idol)

    While driving: upbeat music from my ipod - could be anything from Janis Joplin to Joni Mitchell to Les Cowboys Fringants to Great Big Sea to Phish to .... yeah.

    During sex: None of your damn business. :P

    TV TV TV I am a junkie. I turn it on first thing in the morning and fall asleep to it on timer at night. But I listen to Harry Connick Jr. or talk radio while I get ready to go out.
