THAT WAS 3 WEEKS AGO, MR PEAR.
sententiola liked your audio post: Martin Phipps - Essex, sung by Mediæval Bæbes….
Aren’t you supposed to be preparing for worky type things or have you finished or are you procrastinating on your breaktime?
So a lot of the time when I’m reading Tumblr I can’t listen then and there to the music people have posted — maybe because I’m half-watching television or listening to other music or because I’m in the sitting room and my flatmates are watching television or talking or whatever, or sometimes because I have so many windows open on my computer that audio won’t stream smoothly. So I have a method.
I open the music post in a separate window or tab, bookmark it in a folder that exists specifically for this porpoise, close it, and carry on scrolling. Then when I’m able to listen to stuff, for example now while I’m doing paper-based work, I go through what I’ve got bookmarked in that folder and listen to it.
I use the same system for videos, but it’s rarer that I get chances to watch those because then I have to be able to spare my eyes and my ears rather than just having music on in the background while I do other stuff.
So that, followees (leaders?), is why you get me Liking your music posts a long time after everyone else has moved on, and your videos sometimes even later.
As for work, no, I haven’t finished, but as I said above I can have music on while I’m working, as long as it isn’t too thought-intensive work. And I’m taking occasional breaks like this one here. So there we are.
