... kay so my curiosity is getting the better of me. on average, how much time do you spend listening to music a day? constrained to time spent awake. please boost cuz i'm curious.
@lindsays before i listened to podcasts at work like 10 hours? now maybe 1.5 or 2 hours on average.
@haveheart yeah, that's super valid. podcasts are certainly a good from of "entertainment" for lack of better terms
@lindsays great passive entertainment! definitely makes my day go by quicker. but i listen to music when i walk places or get ready for my day and at the gym
Now if you count the music in my head... 85-90%
@HiRezCanDo honestly like... isn't that music though?
Yeah, I guess so. I guess as long as you hear it you're listening to it. If you happen to be able to tweak it in detail to suit your mood that's just better!
@Nocta That's better. :)
@lindsays it used to be like, 75% of the day, but since i write, i can't usually have music playing anymore. its restricted to cleaning or cooking times now.
@lindsays i also include music in my head, for which i typically have no fewer than three songs running concurrently at any given waking moment
@sungo @lindsays That's probably a lot more common than we think. I know plenty of people who always have something running. tbh I'm surprised this doesn't come up often on dating sites and such, seems a huge compatibility issue.
I keep thinking I'd really enjoy noise-cancellation stuff, and meant to borrow and try a pair, then forgot. ooooops
@lindsays Does it count when it's playing only in my head..?
@lindsays I can't live without music, stops me feeling so horribly alone
@lindsays if Endel.io counts as music, then lots.
@lindsays I have headphones on 90% of the day but most of the time I'm listening to essays or documentaries or other informative long form stuff - I listen to music 100% of my time outside though~
@lindsays From the time I get home until bed, so about six hours? It’s usually the radio though, so I’m not always really paying attention too closely. That and maybe 1-3 hours at work depending on what I’m doing
@lindsays sadly my average time is way down lately, unless you count podcasts. I can only listen to music at work on certain days due to the constraints of my job, but when I can, it's usually as close to 8h as possible. I've been playing more videogames and such lately, too, and not listening to as much music proper.
@lindsays oh gosh. it varies but i'd put myself at 3-4 hours a day on average?? i'll usually listen while walking/riding the bus and sometimes while working or writing too
@lindsays I put 50-75% but that dips down a lot if I am on an audiobook kick.
@lindsays sometimes none, sometimes probably like ten hours
@lindsays i voted 26%–50% but itʼd be higher if i remembered to put on a new album after the old one finished instead of walking around with my headphones on and nothing playing like a doofus
I switched to podcasts and I'm either in my car or in my work truck for about 14 hrs a day... All podcasts except in rare circumstances when I want to listen to music
@lindsays 2.5 hours of music per day, including the zero music days.
@lindsays at least 50-75%, but some days much more. The right music helps me think. The right music helps me not think.
@lindsays Almost always classical or jazz. The less voice the better, and nearly always classical these days.
I'd prefer more meditative (e.g., plainchant -- where voices *don't* interfere) or other early music, though I have less access to that than I'd like.
Virtually anything in the pop genres (rock & c.) interferes with thinking.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
