I've found a new temporary favorite writing band: the Prodigy. Their music is British electronica - they did a few songs on the Kick-Ass soundtrack, and this morning I bought "Invaders Must Die", one of their albums, off iTunes. Fantastic music for writing. Current favorites are "Invaders Must Die", the title track, "Omen", which was in Kick-Ass, "Warrior's Dance", "Run With The Wolves", "Piranha", and "Stand Up" (also in Kick-Ass). Some of it is a bit rough or repetitive, but all the tracks have excellent beats and really get me typing. Highly recommended. If you want to hear the songs, click the song titles; I've linked single-use players (Mom, you won't like them).
Very helpful. I'm plowing through this short story for my fiction-writing seminar. Of course, I'm also sipping a glass of Johnny Walker Black Label, my favorite weekend writing beverage - though it's only useful to a point, and then I fall asleep.
