Bang your head to some music instead…
I couldn’t sleep the other night, well actually I have been having problems sleeping a lot lately. I hate taking meds at the best of times so I try to avoid the ones that I don’t need to function like pain killers and sleeping tablets if I can. So on that premise I went looking for some other ways to fall asleep. I came across using white noise to fall asleep so I went hunting for some software that I could use. I came across one called Atmosphere Lite from Relaxing software . It lets you start with a base background sound like wind, rain or waves and then add random sounds of birds and other stuff over the top. It seems to be helping so Ill let you know over the next few weeks how it is working for me.
The other thing that I like to do is listen to music so I went hunting for sites where I could download free LEGAL mp3’s. I was working on the assumption that there has to be good music that appeals to me that doesn’t come from the HIgh Profile American Marketing Machines (HIPAMM) and after a few hours hunting around I found two sites that appealed to me.
The first is epitonic.com and seems pretty good and the second one is Garageband which after a bit of poking around comes out on top with its ease of use. As for the music ? Not bad, not bad at all. Some of the stuff is not to my taste, even though I am eclectic in my audio taste some things just grind me the wrong way. Especially those ones filed under the genre of “Noise.” Need I say more !
Putting those songs aside as you find them in little dark record stores the open on to dark foreboding alleys as well as online some of the stuff is really good and is opening up the range of music I listen to. Who knows maybe one day some of these artists will be mainstream and I will be able to say “Hey I was listening to them x years ago.”
Just listening to the news One million dollars is to be injected in to mental health in Australia to increase doctors and the like (about fucken time the politician got of their ass.)
