    Music!

    Hey everyone! I've decided to start annotating my blog with a song of the day sort of thing. Maybe I'll post a couple songs that I'm currently feeling, or at least a couple of artists that I'm really feeling. Anyway! My question is this, or correction, my questions are these?

    1. Do you listen to music while you play/listen to music to keep composure?

    2. If question 1 is a yes, then what music do you listen to? If its a no, then I only had one question and my entire post is askew. :O

    Cheers,

    Gerard.

Not an expert on the genre, but it seems to be rather aggressive and I think it pumps me up before I arrive at the casino. Poker is a battle so might as well listen to some war music before you buy-in and sit down with the enemy.
    I dont listen to Dubstep either but Skrillex is making names for himself. I've been enjoying some of his remixes lately.

    First couple years of playing online poker I listened to music the entire time I played and it was almost always just one band, 311. They go really great together for some reason. A couple of their songs even seem poker themed, although I never really payed attention to the lyrics enough to know for sure.

    A couple years ago there was a 2 month period where I would 6-table the micro 2NL cash tables while drinking and listening to the band Saosin (man those were the good old days, 2NL was so bad you could show a profit while not even seeing straight). They don't make the best music in the world, but something about their overly tuned vocals felt good while grinding the tables lol.

    Funny about the music thread popping up.
    There are lots of composers I admire, but two in particular.
    One was born on Dec. 21st, exactly 50 years before my son was, and it's his quote in my post above.

    The other was born on Feb. 29th, and he lived up to it

    Dec. 21st is quite a date as well, you know.

    Good to see you back Dan.
    Here's quote for you:

    Information is not knowledge.
    Knowledge is not wisdom.
    Wisdom is not truth.
    Truth is not beauty.
    Beauty is not love.
    Love is not music.
    Music is the best.

    I try not to listen to anything new or unfamiliar because that would draw attention away from the game. So classic rock, some heavy, some prog, gets the most time from me...something I know well enough to know the mood it's going to put me in.
    For a lot of listings by the gang, check out this thread.

    I usually don't listen to music while I play, but when I do I listen to a playlist of things like Cannibal Corpse, Behemoth, Marduk, Nile, Amon Amarth, Dark Tranquillity, At The Gates, or maybe even some Draconian or Swallow the Sun. Makes you want to kill your opponents with a hammer. ....

    Thrash metal like Metallica's first 4 albums would probably be great for Turbos as well. Any really fast,really aggressive music like that would seem to be the mindset you want to be feeding more than any other in those games. There was a thrash punk band here in the States in the early '80's called The Minutemen (their songs were usually well less than 2 minutes long...RIP D.Boon) who would be great for this as well.

    Except for the .02 990 Hyper-turbo drooler fests...for those I would put on Alvin and the Chipmunks and listen to it on Fast Forward.

    i listen to just about any music,my ipod holds 10k songs so i turn it on and let it go.interesting when i was in high school we had a geography teacher who claimed studies showed classical music had something to do with improving how the hemispheres of the brain work together(or somethin like that)and he played during our half yearly tests.over half the class failed his exam. lmfao . after much complaints the whole class was made sit a new exam,not much to do with poker i know,but take from it what you will

    Im listening to Cat Stevens today. I like listening to music. I'm a modern guy myself. I can understand the shortness changing tempo of play and such. Like when you listen to music while running or walking, and your pace changes to the music.

    I like easy listening/soft rock- Bruce Sprinsteen/Cat Stevens today for instance.
