    I was going to post a witty comment, but I just couldn't find…

      here, i'll do it for you: did anyone notice the name "Jim Curry"?

  • @Phiresuite

    This was pretty much me last week, only when I found the best music I could find to listen to, the next hurdle was to find the perfect volume.
    Too loud and it's a distraction, too quiet and it makes you just want to turn it up more so you can listen to it.

    How can one webcomic understand me so well.

  • Bobby McBob

    This comic is music to my ears! HAHAHA do you guys get my pun?

    • @Phiresuite

      Just some sound advice: audio puns don't quite strike a chord as much as other puns do.

    I usually listen to ThePianoGuys while working, and skip any vocal tracks. I find listening to instrumental music helps me concentrate, and vocals disrupt that. Also, ThePianoGuys are just incredible, and so they make great background music.

    I actually listen to a variety of music to motivate me to do work. For homework, I pump up techno/rave. For programming, I put on metal/rock. For laundry, I play Ravel's Bolero (the full version, and I try to finish putting clothes away before the song finishes). For drawing comics, I play Yes or Jethro Tull.

    Sadly, I haven't yet found any good music to listen to while working on music composition.

    Jim Curry? Is that the student's name or the teacher's name?

    Just curious, how often do you (Justin Boyd) look at the chat zone?

    • Justin Boyd

      I read every comment and reply to as many as I can! I've been really busy the past two weeks with my new job, but I'll be finding a work-comic groove soon!

      I subscribe to the RSS for the comments on this site, so I even see comments on old comics too!

    there's a website called that stimulates the background noises of a coffee shop. it's pretty cool for people who can't work with complete silence.

    I use Rainymood and then get confused when I go outside and it's sunny.

    Most of the time I just put my entire ipod or spotify library on shuffle unless I'm in the mood for something specific. It usually works out and I just reshuffle or skip if I don't want to listen to whatever came on.
