    Anyway, I was wondering the diffrent ways people enjoy music.

    I myself usually am lying down on my sofa or floor when I listen to music, sometimes I pace back and forth through my room if I'm in a hurry and want to listen to one more song.

    So your turn now. Are you one of those freaky metal people that headbangs alot or do listen to music while you do something else (homework/work), maybe you dance? :blink

    I pretty much listen to music as much as I can.. On the bikeride to school ( thank you iPod! ) at home when I'm behind the comp, or, when I'm feeling lazy/not so good, I just lay on my bed and let the songs shuffle.

    i usually listen to music all the time lying somewhere, ground, sofa, bed, stairs (somewhere in the streets...)
    but i like too when it is dark, there i have the feeling that the music fills the entire room, and that it "speaks" to me.
    do a lot of headbanging too.... sometimes....

    Man you're exacly like me, I usually hear when somone is coming down the stairs and I quickly turn on the light (I live in the basment floor of the house).

    Anyway I listen to all kinds of music, I try to stay as openminded as possible. But I do have three favorite bands that could tell what kind of music I enjoy.
    They are, A Silver Mt. Zion, Radiohead and Nirvana. But I listen to many more bands/artists, thesa are just the ones that are most important to me at the moment.

    So are you gonna answer your own question? What do you listen to?

    I listen to music pretty much non-stop, except at work when I'm cooking on line.

    Anyhoo, at the computer, walking around, sleeping, reading, it doesn't matter, I like to have music surrounding me at all times.

    I am a big fan though, of a dark room, an 'altered mind', headphones and the window open to let a breeze in..

    My headphones never leave my ears. So any surronding is okay for me. though , while listening to post rock,folk rock or chillout/lounge, I usually enjoy lazying on the couch and reading a book.

    How the hell are you able to read a book and listen to music. I've tried, but it always ends with me missing three chapters of a book, or something.

    I love books+music, it just adds to the flavour of the book.

    Infact certain series/books are permanently associated with certain albums for me because of that.

    It depends what type of music it is. If it's all everything apart from Soca/dancehall, I sit on my chair, sofa or lie on ym bed. When dancehall/soca come on, the best way to enjoy it is to get up and dance! :D *wynding* ;)

    I myself can't focus on the book if there is music in the background. Mostly because I start focusing on the music and how it sounds.

    BTW moe.
    Are the ASMZ working alright, have you listened thru them?

    Don't get me wrong I like listening to music when I'm going to school and taking walks, I especially like to listen to Radiohead while taking a walk in an urban enviorment, it's just magic. But I can't read shit if there is any kind of music nearby.


    moe: Yes weekends. Best time to listen to music. Tho I have a problem. I can't go to sleep until I've listened to some Sliver Mt. Zion, or Godspeed.

    Well, shush, that's my line! Still a sweet thread, soo..

    Contrary to Davey's wishful thinking I don't enjoy my music naked in front of my webcam, but also not in some detached state of my mind.
    It usually just plays in the background, while I'm working on something. And just like moe the only situation in which I'm able to multitask is book + music.

    I also read to music occasionally, though when I do so it's often classical, jazz or post-rock. Mingus is a requirement when I cook by the way, and Lekman when I bake.

    Mostly though, just when I'm in the train, at the PC and sometimes in bed when I'm getting to sleep. I get pretty introspective in the time inbetween getting into bed and falling asleep
