Hey TQC, long time no see!
When I sit down to do assignments, I have a whole array of bands that I like to listen to that get me in that assignment mood (The Fall of Troy, Paramore, Fall Out Boy, Disturbed, The Gazette, Nicki Minaj, to name a few). They tend to be similar to the ones that get me in the mood for creative writing.
So, I decided to find something to listen to that I'd only use for assignment-specific writing, and found the Original Sound Tracks to the Death Note anime (if you haven't heard of it, Death Note is a ten-year-old manga series about notebooks that kill people, and one student's goal to use it to rid the world of evil. It's been described as the Japanese cross between Dr Faust, Sherlock Holmes and Richard III, with an abundance of sociopaths. It has a 37 episode anime, and three live action films (with a stage musical and another live action to follow, apparently)). It seems to get me into a productive thinking mood, so I feel like I'm turning a corner here. I hope that, if I'm lucky, watching the anime itself will make me want to focus on work.
What have you recently discovered in the world of music? What have you discovered in the world of attempting to study (If you're a student)? What have you discovered in general?
