I thought we could maybe recommend stuff to listen to while drawing.
i'm up for pretty much anything from podcast to tv-shows
in any genre.
I listen to mostly Dungeon Synth or random death/black metal while drawing. I like EBM too, but it doesn't seem conducive to me getting anything done, I usually end up just dancing in my seat.
one of my resolutions was getting more literature in, so i've been listening to a bunch of audiobooks.
my favorites so far are The Things They Carried read by bryan cranston, Lolita read by jeremy irons, Slaughterhouse-Five read by ethan hawke, and To Kill a Mockingbird read by sissy spacek
I just watched fresh prince
They are often only on the same stage multiple times during the season so you don't really need to look to enjoy the show and the jokes still holds up.
maybe not for everyone though.
you can google a million explanations but basically when you first learn to read it includes sounding out words so that yr not a mute autist, problem is that limits your reading speed to your talking speed, also, if you've ever been reading something then thought "wait what did I just read" that's because you were just sounding out words in your head and not actually processing their meaning. Most people who have to read a lot academically or otherwise will naturally end up photoreading line by line rather than word by word and will remember more of it. You can read a book a day within a couple months if you practice and it's a valuable skill. Just don't use it for poetry.
I looked into this. The guy that came up with the idea markets it poorly, like it's some kinda of "magical thing". So I feel like a lot of people will debunk the idea. But I know from experience that there is truth to "photo reading". Maybe not in the way Paul Scheele tries to pass it off as. I think his "techniques" are mainly a way to catch peoples attention and make it look easy. To a degree, they do work, but ultimately, it's not about reading an entire book at the speed of light. It's about being able to digest a larger load of information all at once. Like you said, the whole idea of "processing the information" rather than just sounding out each word. Interesting stuff.
audiobooks (listening to blackwater currently)
neal gabler's disney biography is good
i've been thinking of using a speech-to-text program to read news & shitposts while i work, are there any good ones?

Could anyone tell me how they can listen to podcasts while drawing? Either it distracts me, or I'm too focused that I don't listen to it anyway.
I just find music to be better in every way, and probably wouldn't even listen to anything if my flat wasn't so noisy.
