I’ve had a lot of listeners say that they like to listen to The Animation Podcast while they animate. I think animating is hard enough as it is, so, personally, I can’t do it. Even listening to music takes some of the pep out of my animating muscles, so normally I work in silence. ¬°Qu?© l?°stima!
If you’re the type who is fueled by syncopated rhythms or a driving baseline (uh, yeah, I sound cool), then you’ve GOT to check out Pandora. It’s a free website that asks you for a song or artist you like and then it makes a surprisingly accurate playlist to keep you tapping your toes for hours. It plays through your browser and it really is amazing. You’re allowed up to 100 playlists so chances are good that you may discover new bands that you never knew existed.
For the last hour I’ve been coasting (that’s KOSTing in So. Cal.) along to a sweet blend of mellow seventies pop based on my search for the dearly dissolved band, Bread. Somehow that stuff doesn’t take much brain power.
I’m always on the lookout for some audio entertainment for you guys in between shows. Of course you’ll have to turn it off when my next show comes out, but you knew that. So what’s your playlist based upon?
