    I'm a weirdo who needs silence to read. I cannot handle distractions.

    I need complete silence to read a novel, but with comics, a good soundtrack makes it seem more cinematic. I have a few thousand movie scores that I rotate through while I read, and it really enhances the experience for me.

    Really depends on what I am reading. Sometimes I need silence and sometimes music ads to the read.

    TerryE,

    Try Shovels And Rope and American Aquarium.
    "Hold Her Down" is a great Toad tune and totally misunderstood.

    Toad is so good. I’m glad I got to finally see them a few years ago.

    Last weekend I “won” free tickets to see Jewel and Rachel Platten. I’d had seen Jewel years ago in the little coffee shop in San Diego she got “discovered” in (even though she was already famous by this point) and Rachel Platten’s Fight Song really got me through some bad shit a couple of years ago, so I was well aware of both artists and excited to see them live. Plus free tickets!

    The first opener was an independent songwriter who won a music contest for this show and are was was really good - Annie Bethancourt. The second opener was Josie Dunne who I had zero idea of who or what she was about. She was amazing! An amazing voice and performer and not someone I would have ever been interested in if I hadn't seen her live.

    Normally I’m not one for popular music - I firmly live in the hard rock non-Cookie Monster metal world, but this concert was SOOOO good.
