What do you listen/watch to when you're working?

All night gigs and working late is common for me. Sometimes very late in the evening/morning as projects just grow larger and more complex. During my work, I need some tunes to keep me going or just enough distraction to keep my attention to what I'm doing.

Lately, I've been listening to movies in the background while I do my work and find that for some movies, I get a better sense of the story.

My main drink is coffee with a few tea breaks here and there.

Ofcourse, this forum is always great. I can chime in anytime and be assured there is someone here rummaging around the forums like me trying to find something interesting or helping someone out :D

What's your movie or tune?
What drink keeps you going?

I tend to listen to internet radio stations. Depending on the mood, dubstep, trance, hardstyle/breakcore, metal.

After a while, music is merely but a background noise. Some type of musics keeps me pumping at some high-rate and keep going on in/at work.

For drinks, water (with syrup) and coke (coca-cola) it is.

EDIT: I forgot also that sometimes, when my head's full or whatever, classical radio station do it very well. There's still energy pumping, but les intensivly, which is good too at times.Kyatric2011-09-30 23:36:19

I drink Red Bull when I need to hyperspace a project out the door...lol...

Kyatric, I know what you mean, I need that background noise. I once worked at a gig and it was sooooooo quiet all you could hear were people lightly tapping on their keyboards and the occasional cough or yawn. No music or headphones were allowed. It drove me insane.

btw, cool alerts at the top next to my avatar, that function is handy. That's new right?

Minecraft music and the like :) It's very calming and doesn't distract me while I work. Also, coffee. Redbull makes me work so fast I don't even know what the hell I'm doing.
