    I just listen to nice movie soundtracks (Han Zimmer!), rain and thunder sounds, nature sounds (birds, water), camp fire sound.
    Actual songs are a bit distraction to me so, just listen to plain music.

    • Where do you find actual nature tracks? The best ones I could find are on the national parks website but there aren't many. The ones I found on spotify sound too artificial to me.

      Care to share a playlist link or something?

      Just YouTube. Many good tracks are there. A quality headset helps a lot.

      Testament/machinehead/pantera if I already settled on a plan and I just need to grind code. For slowing down mind to think and design see the post above.

    • Never heard of psytrance before. I guess there is quite a bit I need to learn about electronic genres. Thanks.

  • I make people listen to me singing at work. Joke on you. I work from home.

    • Haha :)

      Do you like working from home? I considered it a couple of times but I think I'd go crazy after like 2 weeks.
      Jul 6
    • I work from home most of the time, often 5 days a week. I only go to office if there’s a 1-1 with manager/PM or an onsite interview to do.

    • Nice. Unfortunately a lot of things depend on me being at my desk. I need to start working on turning that around.

    I don't like to work with music on. But there fucking open office with all its nose and distractions makes it necessary for me to have something else blasting into my ears.
