I’m eating a veggie burger and watching Hot Tub Time Machine because I’ve been reading Sherlock Holmes since I got off. I’m really trying to get through it so I can move on to the next! I want to steam roll this project like it aint no thang!
Anyway, I was working in the music department at the store today, and this always gives me food for thought and a great profusion new artists to listen to. I know a lot of people need quiet to be able to read, but I am absolutely the opposite. I need sound to engage my subconscious while my conscious roams the pages of a good book. But at the same time, you won’t find me listening to Nickleback or Metallica while I’m trying to power through Doyle’s masterful works. So here’s my current Reading(or writing) playlist.
There’s probably a lot more I could list, but it’s mostly been a rotation of the above mentioned albums. I won’t give reviews for each of the albums, yet, although they are all really fantastic pieces of art and they are all easy to listen to while reading, in a bubble bath, drinking a glass of pinot, or even washing dishes. I will say if you click on the link for Bobby Long and order his CD you get a free T-Shirt, and the CD is great anyway soo. Mumford and Sons is playing in Asheville in June, just in case anyone wants to go with me! And Marco Mahler is a friend, a great musician and artist, and also a really cool guy. I recently won a giveaway he was doing and got a really beautiful mobile, or kinetic sculpture, that he created. If you visit his site you can see some of his work, listen to his music and visit his etsy store!
So what do you listen to when you read? Or write? BTW Hot Tub Time Machine is bueno!
