TV series, podcasts, music, films. That's quite broad, but for example I watched all of Lost a couple of years ago while painting nids, listened to every Ricky Gervais radio show/podcast, Breaking Bad... I'm struggling to remember now because I haven't been able to paint for a while. I like 40k podcasts too.

Generally stuff that takes hours and hours to work through so I'm not spending time thinking of what to watch next and can instantly jump from one episode to the next and not waste time when I could be painting

aswell as painting and modelling up a joondalup cos its a larger, more inviting store than the carillion, but the guys in the city are great too.

I either listen to music (usually either metal og dubstep, depending on mood - Although I'm a metal musician, i find that dubstep is easier to paint to, as I don't sing a long ) or to Miniwargamings "Sit and talks" with Matt.

I cannot watch a show or a movie while I'm painting, as I'm concentrating more on whats in front of me, than I ever would on a show. I would miss 80% of the thing i watched.

Occasionally I'll put on a Frontline Gaming batrep (I used to watch MWG back in the day when they knew what they were about), but I'll usually just stick on the D'Oyly Carte recordings of the Savoy Operas. At some point, maybe when I finally get around to painting my Knight, I'll try and get all the way through Der Freischutz (you could paint a Warhound in that time!).

Sometimes I bang the radio on, or in the case of my current Japanese project I've had a lot of stuff like The Pacific, Letters from Iwo Jima, Pacific Battleship Yamato or Battle of the Pacific.


Stuff that's relevant to the moments current project basically

When I was studying Korean I sometimes just played the textbook accompanying CDs from start to finish and absorbed it all. It doesn't make much sense listening to that kind of CD from start to finish but since painting was the main activity it didn't have to be an efficient kind of study, just listening was enough to bring stuff back and internalise thing I'd already studied

I have a work bench in my garage that I model and paint my minis at, and I usually throw on some Metal (Usually the harder upbeat stuff like system of a down, slipknot or rage against the machine) because the loudness and upbeat tempo help with boredom. I don't really enjoy the act of painting but I like to have good looking models when I game and I enjoy listening to music so I still enjoy my painting time.
