You are given six hours notice before you permanently go deaf. How do you cope?
spend five hours learning the basics of sign language and getting used to silence, i guess probably by wearing earplugs for five hours or sth
in the remaining hour, listen to pic related
then go to sleep and wake up deaf
Soundtracks For The Blind - 2 hr 20 minutes
The Black Saint And The Sinner Lady - 40 minutes
Yeti - 70 minutes
Altars Of Madness - 40 minutes
Symphony No 9 - 1 hour
The last bit of time will be spent listening to Det Som Engang Var on Buruzm's Hvis Lysett Tar Oss and then walk to my death as the songs top tier outro plays.
>listening to your favorite albums before you go deaf
That's just gonna make you sadder when you know you can never hear them again. I'd probably just listen to Brokencyde for 6 hours. Then deafness would become a blessing.
Talk to friends, family, complete strangers. Fuck music, it's just a pleasant distraction.
The truth is, I thought it mattered - I thought that music mattered. But does it? Bollocks! Not compared to how people matter.
2 hours calling my family and close friends
2 hours recording all of my ideas so someone else can finish them
final 2 hours:
listen to ITAOTS
listen to Kid A
listen to my own demo album
afterwards I would enter severe depression and probably have to drop out of school ...although I guess I would've dropped the classes anyway.
I like visual art so I'd probably learn to paint and use that to replace music.
holy mother of god
who in their right mind would prefer this over being dead
Nah dude. If you have a pretty good musical system (like the awesome surround sound system at my parents' place that I hope they would let me use if such a situation happened) it's all good.
I have implants and can confirm it sounds nothing like this. Ive also spoken to people who got cochlear implants after suddenly going deaf late into their lives and they dont notice much difference
