    For some reason i cant do anything properly without music, and its become a big part of my coding. What are yalls favorite jams to code to?

    Currently i’m listening to: August Burns Red ;)

    I used to watch movies constantly while I worked. Mostly movies I had seen as a child.

    If it’s something that I can sing along to, my productivity decreases…

    @joshuanhibbert : haha, that’s what i’m talking about!

    @chrisburton, Well lets get an idea of your age with a couple movie examples?

    I’ll be 25 tomorrow.

    Problem Child (1 & 2), Children of the Corn (series), St. Elmo’s Fire, Breakfast Club, Wall Street and so on. Perfect time to watch Home Alone, though.

    Usually anything chill, lounge and ambient. Jon Hopkins, Fragile State, Massive Attack, Solar Fields, compilation albums (Chill Out Lounge, Cafe Del Mar, Supperclub) and sometimes just some radio stations in iTunes.

    Though every once in a while, I need some serious rock like Warrior Soul, Killing Joke or The Sisters Of Mercy.

    Dang! Yall prefer chill music? I think its just my crazy brain, i need something loopy and crazy.
    @chrisburton, 25 tomorrow? Well happy early birthday man, and i for some reason thought you were older? Problem child was an amazing movie when i was younger, wasn’t there something in there about Kramer and if he saw something like a twinkie he got really mad or something? lol…

    If yall want a spark of crazy loud music, check out Lamb of God, Pinkly Smooth, King for a Day(feat. Kellin Quinn).

    Maybe i need to tone back my music and i might be able to be more creative?

    Yes, Home Alone is a classic (first one)! Once you watch the movie Party Monster, well, you want ever want to see him in anything else again.

    Anything that doesn’t have lyrics. Could be electronic music– but more often than not it is a nice genre station on Pandora or other online radio sites like:

    Classical Music
    Ambient
    Minimalist Techno

    @joshuanhibbert : That’s so true! Normally my habits lead me to sit down to start coding and then i look up and realize i haven’t ate anything in 12 hours and its dark out. Yeah, i do that too much!

    @ben_boomer : I’ll totally check that out, i need to switch things up for sure.

    It depends on the project and how well its going. I tend to lean towards hard rock when I’m on a hot streak, classic rock or country when I first start or am on a nice casual/steady roll. When I get stuck on something, I tend to switch over to classical music or listen to a podcast.

    I definitely have a tendency to hit the pause button when I’m close to solving an issue I’ve run into, and forget to hit play during the coding frenzy that usually follows.
