    Sometimes you want to share a tune you are listening to with other people but there aren't other people nearby you can pester. So post it here and pester us.

    Dan Patlansky - Got a bad, bad feeling.

    I'm listening to the FFIX sound track. I forgot how beautiful it is.

    I don't play videogames much so didn't know how awesome some of the soundtracks can be. Mouse played some for me this past week and I was stunned at how beautiful the FF tunes are. He played some that were done by full orchestras - they are not simple 1 minute midi files like I expected :)

    Oh man I am a big Nobou Uematsu(FF composer) fan. When I was younger, people would ask me what kind of music I listened to, and I responded "video game music". It was pretty much all I listened to. It is gorgeous, even some of the old stuff with the limited technology. When he started remaking his songs with orchestras, it was just... 8D. I love that stuff. Mind you, I'm a bit of an oldie=goodie, so I admit I'm a fan of a lot of his older work and not as familiar with his new stuff.

    I don't know if there's anyone else around who likes screamy aggressive music, but I'm listening to this awesome cover of "Wrecking Ball" by August Burns Red, and it's so much better as an angry punk song.

    rax raxolotls gonna rax a lot

    Which Wrecking Ball? (I always think of Mother Mother, and an angry punk cover of that would be AWESOME.)

    Personally I've been fixated on All Hands by Doomtree for... a while. :P

    Sadly, the Miley Cyrus one, because after listening to Mother Mother, I totally want a punk cover too.



    I've been pretty heavily fixated on aggressive metal/industrial/punk lately so uh, I'm having trouble finding people IRL who actually like my music.

    This Doomtree music is pretty neat, though! :D

    NPR is BEST sperg. I haven't listened to Serial yet, but This American Life and Fresh Air are awesome. I got hooked on podcasts while doing secretarial summer job, haven't hopped off.

    i used to listen to fresh air when my local station, WBUR, would run it in the 9 o clock slot but then they switched to Q, and switched to a local program called open source when Jian got caught up in those allegations of abuse.
    what are your thoughts on wait wait don't tell me + and the diane rheme show?
    i know, two different things.
    specifically with diane rheme, do you find her irritating? because i've gotten used to her voice over time.
    also, my local runs BBC late at night, so when i can't sleep i listen to that.

    Jeez, I didn't even hear about those abuse allegations.

    My local station actually doesn't carry The Diane Rheme Show, so I'm not very familiar with it. I hate to say it, but Wait Wait Don't Tell Me is a little too silly for me; I'm annoyingly data-focused, I want my talk radio full of facts and news, not humor! >:E

    (This emote is a joke, it's just not my thing. XD)

    I do enjoy our local news programs, which involve a lot of gardening and stuff in addition to actual current events. I used to listen to Talk of the Nation back when it was airing, and BBC Newshour when I have enough brain to parse it. Otherwise, lots of random podcasts - BBC has some good documentary podcasts, and I'm addicted to history and science fiction podcasts.

    fair enough for wwdtm.
    open source, the replacement where i am, is fascinating.
    have you listened to any invisibilia?
    they did one on fear that was amazing.

    Dude. DUDE. Have I mentioned that my primary sperg is human cognition? Why have I not heard of this, I need to marathon it now. o_o

    We might want to split off into a radio thread though; I'm going to make a splinter thread. Just so we don't clutter things too much. :)

    Orchestra version of You're Not Alone gets me crying from time to time.

    I'm listening to the Parade song from Paprika right now.

    Melodies of Life gets be every time. But I have a lot of emotional stuff connected with FFIX in general.

    Edgar Allan Poe stories in music.
    Carries me back to when I was little (okay, so the same size but with less life experience) sitting in a tree reading the stories.

    Adore these albums for art marathons. The Barbarian has some of my favorite verses, and try to belt them out is fun. :D
