Mikey, I know you work a very long day. Do you sit in an office quietly working or are you distracted by TV or Radio?
I listen to internet radio primarily. Right now I am listening to 1.fm. It’s a free service and has several genres of music. I listen to the Fashion TV station that is part of this network.
I’m like anyone else, when the music is great, I turn it up loud and sing along. When it’s not my favourite songs, I turn it down so it’s background noise.
The problem with most internet radios and what I do by listening to up to 14 hour days to the same channel is that their is a ‘loop’ of the music is generally the same. If you listen to the music long enough, you will find yourself listening to the same music without exploring any new music. I like change and surprises in music, so this is something that bugs me a bit.
As far as TV, Daniel and I do not subscribe to TV Services. We these services really expensive. We have no watched Real TV in about 5 years. With exception to the occasional hotel visit where we see what we are missing. We have a general rule of the house that the Apple TV isn’t turned on until after 9 pm. Generally, as artists, we feel that TV distracts us and makes it very easy for us to not explore our creativity. Watching TV at the end of the day is a way to let go of the day’s troubles and relax. That’s technically when I crochet anyways.
We do love to watch Netflix. It’s cheap and overall really good. Seeing that we haven’t watched real TV in years, what is old to others is new to us.
Do you have a general question for me? Post a reply below in questions that are not related to me finding a pattern or problem solving a pattern.
