… For and Acted Upon Through Diversions might be the most singularly relaxing album I’ve listened to in quite some time. Venice Is Drowning’s Azar comes close (although it does have vocals). Both are complex and not entirely “soft” (although neither goes batshit punk-rock hard either). I’ve also been jamming out to Black Moth Super Rainbow’s Dandelion Gum. Simply stunning. Complex, but not distracting.

I’m pausing from the story I began a short while ago to mention this because I’ve actually managed to break the bit of a block I’ve had for the last couple of weeks (you know, the ones where every line just stinks, even if you convince yourself to leave it and read it the next day?). I attribute it the wonderful auralgasm pumping through my headphones.

Also, I’m colouring all of my writing with a British hue. I’ve set OpenOffice to British English and it’s spell-checking results are sometimes awkward and often fun. The extraneous ‘u’s and ‘e’s are quite aesthetic. And yeah, I actually look at writing so holisticly that if a line that sounds wonderful looks awkward or feeble or ugly on a page full of other lines, it is not good enough (I’ll try to save it and use it where it might work a little better).
