    I never listen to just music. It's always supplementary to another activity.

    I listen to music

    • while working
    • while sleeping
    • while playing Mafia
    • while browsing the internet
    • while talking to people (online)
    • while reading
    • while cooking
    • while showering
    • while walking


    I do not listen to music while playing video games (beyond the game's soundtrack, that is) or going to the washroom.

    But yeah, I almost always have some kind of audio playing. Sometimes it's more ASMR than music, but the past couple months it's been predominantly music.

    I listen to music:
    • In the shower
    • When I'm looking up submissions for walrus
    • When I'm driving
    • The hour before I go to the gym to get pumped up
    • When I host social events
    • When I attend social events
    • The Metropolitan Opera when it's in season
    • When I want to look at this graph

    i think i'm actually a massive outlier in this case. usually when i listen to music, it's... the only thing i'm doing. i don't usually listen to music for the purpose of it being in the background; usually i listen to music specifically the hone into what i'm listening to, whether it be something i've already heard a million times or if it's something i'm listening to the first time. generally i'm bad at multitasking anyways so this doesn't surprise me that much.

    sometimes while listening to music i'll check twitter or read something casually but i can't focus on music and something else at the same time. that's just not really how i personally consume music.

    i'm sorta like this as well to some extent, though not always. i do sometimes put on background music while multitasking (either familiar favorites or some kind of instrumental/postrock/chillhop/"focus" music), and sometimes i'll listen to new stuff while doing something else but i generally like to focus on it a bit more

    Well I always have some sort of audio input. Sometimes it's sports or sports radio, but otherwise there's going to be music playing 90% of the time regardless of where I am.

    Play mafia and stuff. It really depends on what I am doing to judge if I listen to music or not. If I'm at my computer and not playing a video game or in my van driving, I'm listening to music.

    I like metal.


    I play the same way every time. I used to care about reading people. Read about that here. Now I just use a streamlined system. This makes my strategy for playing very easy. I'd love to share the details of my system with you, but then I would have to kill you. It's easy to do and it is not complicated, but it took me a few years to figure out how to develop something like this. I'll be giving updates throughout the game.

    i have background music rolling whenever i'm not in a call basically

    helps me focus/clears my head, quiets some kind of low-level restlessness from no input

    This is pretty rad. Feels like Marduk but more black 'n rolly.

    Maybe I'll check out the album after I'm finished listening to another 100 walrus submissions lol

    There's only 3 possibilities:
    1. I'm driving, and the music that I'm listening to is the radio.
    2. It's some sort of study or lofi music that I run to improve or prolong my concentration. Especially the latter.
    3. I listen to music for listening to music sake and do nothing else but pay attention to the music. Admittedly, I can't just fully listen to it as I'm lost in my own thoughts sooner or later. But it's the intention. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


    Additionally, work and workout are more enjoyable with music. But I'm lazy so..

  18. ISO #18
    most any time i'm doing something where neither of the following cases is true:

    a) my mind is clear enough that i can focus fully on something
    b) my mind is fuzzy enough that music means i can't focus on something at all

    so not if i want to think super deeply, and not if my brain is barely hanging onto its last two shards of sanity, but i can enjoy it most of the time in between

    that said, my favorite way of consuming music is just me, a dark room with space to move around in, and the music

    but i don't go out of my way to do this as much as i could
