Anything without vocalizations (though choir-type non-English singing can be okay). Love orchestral and heavy electronica.

Two Steps From Hell compose awesome orchestral tracks primarily for trailers and commercials for movies, tv shows and video games. Invincible is probably my favorite album.

Glitch Mob has an incredible electronic sound, and I also love Daft Punk and Deadmau5.

Yes, I like Two Steps From Hell for writing, and I have Invincible on the machine on which I'm typing this. Hans Zimmer's younger brother (in my imagination). Good for writing turning-points and climaxes. And thanks, vic, for the memories!

Four-and-a-half hours and enough for a couple of thousand words - thanks, vic-k.

That's a nice video, and neat that it has links to the track locations in the comments. Of course, I actually have all of those albums on my computer. Not that I'm obsessed with them or anything. Although Bergerson could really do with some new drapes in his living room.

Vic-k, I think you've evolved faster than any of us have in terms of getting crazy shit* off the net. It's a sixth sense, and I think you've got it...maybe you'll develop telekinetic powers being at the next stage of human evolution!

I think this song was written about Vic-K, and "Dexter" is just a weak cover.

Well, yosi baby, Dev's just exposed a flaw in your rationale .. methinks :twisted:
However, I must admit to finding https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8BWBn26bX0 almost as relaxing as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtFPdBUl7XQ ahhhh, I could just nod off without too much troub ....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Image

Y can say anything you want, yosi baby. as long as it's enshrouded within its qualifying context. Non-Contextualised profanities and expletives and verbosity, will get you banished to the Scriv for Linux Forum :shock: Once there, you'll have to wear 1970's flared trousers, mix with leprechaun-n-gnomes, and learn to speak Penguin!

Being ahead of evolution, and being bonkers can very much be the same thing. Some of the greatest minds were greater because they were absolutely nuts!

So feel proud. And stay crazy. It's good for the soul.

Bats, rats, cats they yearn,
To tell you life is crazy so learn
To live it more thoroughly, you can,
Damn everyone else to hell,
Can't you tell?
The world ain't that enough,
It's bent, rude, it's rough,
But you gotta keep on going,
Keep to the rhythm, feel the flowing,
Live like you gotta tail,
Railing 'gainst all that fails,
Bats, rats, cats they yearn,
To tell you the life you gotta burn...
