Here of late I've been listening to metal like Nightwish, Malmsteen and Blind Guardian, but for the last three nights I've listened to Ashley MacIsaac's Celtic-hard rock-metal-techno stuff. Wonderful stuff! Definitely meant to keep out the outside world. [Smile]

Malmsteen? Wow....a blast from the past.

Didn't he play for Marillion during the 'wailing-swedish-longhair-guitarist' days?

Yeah, I've been on a metal kick lately too, listening to stuff from Chronix. Plenty of good stuff including Dimmu Borgir, Megadeth, Anthrax, Disturbed, Metallica, etc. Other than that, it's been DC Talk, MC Chris, and some Weird Al on the side. Oh, and a bit of trance occasionally.

I've been listening to a good bit of Santana lately. Right now, as I prepare my anti-Ballmer spiel, I'm listening to:

Hmm...

At work.

If my co-worker controls tunes.

Disco. It's kinda like masturbation. Can take the tension away but not as much fun as the real stuff and has no real substance or meaning.

If I control the music.

Hank Williams III
Soul Asylum
Pursuit of Happiness
Black Flag


In the car between sites.

Hendrix
Stevie Ray Vaughan
L.A. Guns
Kasey Chambers ( Aussie country)

Whatever happens to be loaded in the cassette/MP3/winamp player (depending on era) at the time. Usually after about 5 minutes its tuned out, and I couldn't tell you what I had just listened to if my life depended on it.

I have been poked with sticks on several occasions after failing to respond to the query: "Are you listening to me??"

Tartan Terrors and a ramped up Celtic/rock/metal Ashley MacIsaac have been in my CD player the most at work here of late. Now that I just got my new car with a CD player, I'll be listening to them in the car too! yay!

Pearl Jam?

That's like saying that you code to the Cranberries. [shake head]

Though the first couple of albums were alright, Pearl Jam became one of those message bands. You know, you are stupid people so we have to cram our views down your throat, but unfortunately it will be a regurgitation of music that we have already done before since we are too busy fighting social injustice. Oh and the new album comes out in January. [Razz] </rantandrave>

Tom Waits is spinning this week.

Well, I don'[t code, at least not in the same sense you computer guys do, but I do like music when I'm working. When I'm plotting variants of my RNA (coding in AUCG) or designing DNA oligos (coding in ATCG [Wink] ) I like something fairly fast. For some reason, fast music, be it rock or classical, helps me focus on endless chains of A's, U's or T's, G's, and C's. Screwing up a sequence is about as cartastropic as screwing uop a line of computer code, except for me the errors are much less apparent. The last time I failed to catch my own mistakes, I'd spent two months banging my head against a wall and ended up spending the better part of two weeks repairing the mistake and banging out new RNA. :/

When I'm purifying RNA it's a bit more mindless and I like something I can sing along to. I made a friend the day one of my lab mates caught me singing along with his Bob Dylan CD.

When I'm setting up crystallization trials, Bob Marley. Helps keep my hands steady and my brain distracted from the crick developing in my neck.

NPR is also nice to have on the radio, though it can be extremely distracting, especially on Science Friday. A few weeks ago they had some really interesting feature on and everyone, the boss included, was just sitting in the back listening very intently. Lab rats. [Razz]

Around the apartment I like to listen to Bright Eyes, especially if I'm doing any kind of cooking or cleaning. Don't ask.

Of the little coding I've done, I either listen to trance, techno, or swing (any, though I most enjoy early 1920's).

When cooking: Pop and Alternative 80's, some of today's Alternative

When cleaning/doing chores: Metal*, Rock*, swing, Latin, and Disco - so I can jump and dance around the house with reason [Big Grin]

Homework: Everything mentioned (incl. hippie stuff), though those the following category impede my progress

When I just want to ponder: Floyd, some Zeppelin, The Cure, U2, Temptations, and any classical music (been listening to that more often lately). Also included is one Def Leppard song (Hysteria) and one Moody Blues song (Nights in White Satin). This is the kind of music that, when it comes on the radio, I stop whatever I'm doing and just listen... usually it makes me really sad [ohwell] . All music has feeling, but this kind of music has meaning to me.


*Metal: Megadeth, Stryper, Slaughter, Ratt, Winger, Yngwie Malmsteen, Cinderella, L.A. Guns

*Rock: Zeppelin, Blue Oyster Cult, Rush, Alice Cooper, Van Halen, Beatles

I guess that post was mostly off-topic... I don't code often, and I don't have a job. I just really love music (0.0) .

Oops, I see the pun after another look. Perl Jam! Now to think of a band name I can hack apart to sound like a coding language.

Hmmm...

Hehe, now visualising Alice Cooper coding in Python rather than having one around his neck on stage.

Actually, it's damn hard to think of band names that are connected with programming languages. If ever I invent a new programming language, I'll be sure to name it after a band to make this exercise easier in future.

Pigface and My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, mostly. Something with a good, aggro beat and relatively mindless lyrics.

If I'm getting too far into the "I AM MASCHINE" feeling after a code marathon, I throw on some Leonard Cohen and get my mope on. [Wink]

A lot of stuff, mostly whats in my itunes library which consists of
Guns N'Roses
KISS
Velvet Revolver
Quiet Riot
Weird Al Yankovich (can't be all rock...)
and somehow Maryilyn Manson and Rob Zombie got into my mix

and sadly most of these bands were not really my era...
