I really like the Friendly Fires right now. Sort of heavy and funky, really good for coding to

I listen obsessively to a small number of anime openings/closers.

I don't really drink anything until My throat feels dry - then I'll chug a glass of water.

Lots of water, good for the brain! Aside from that I drink too much Relentless.. but that's only 'cause I got loads from work when the business went under.
I try to listen to more chilled stuff while working - I find heavy distracts me sometimes! A lot of Duran Duran, Tears for Fears and other 80s stuff seems to be on rotation more when I'm working at the mo for some reason!

Lately its been alot of eminem and incubus, oh and I drink at least 2 or 3 monster or rockstar energy juices.
also if im more open to distraction that day, rewatching scott pilgrim vs the world, ppg's, or my little pony in a small window off to the right of my screen usually does the trick. Can only do it with things I've seen 18billions times

Also, irc on 24/7 to break off to, and talk about what im working on is usually a nice procrastinatory gesture

Primer's soundtrack and gallons of water, the only downside is that I have to go to pee every 1/2 hour or so. :P

EDIT: Some other music I listen while working -
Black Swan(A Scanner Darkly)
Elephant Woman(Hard Candy)
Monster's Theme (Jon Hopkins)
Where's my mind(Fight Club)abhilash28632011-09-26 16:24:13

Tonight is an all-nighter night for me and I will try to avoid this forum in fear I shall be sucked into its vortex and may never get out to do work that pays for my bills at this time.

Coffee pot and tunes are just starting up. Good night everyone.

Nothing. It's distracting.

Some times I find no music is best as the noise stops me from thinking but other times I like a bit of rock/pop-rock to get the keys flowing.
