Quick post for the musically minded. I recently discovered an amazing YouTube channel called Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell. They only post about one video a month because their content takes so long to put together and detail, dealing in all manner of science such as quantum mechanics, the heat death of the universe, atoms, molecules, cells, and the very nature of being. I highly encourage you check them out. Maybe because I’m secretly a super villain (or not so secretly in love with one), hearing about the eventual end of all things brings me strange comfort.
They have one video on their Our Best Stuff playlist “Are You Alone (In the Universe). I’ve watched it around ten times in three days.
The combination of existential examination and epic music is chill inducing, and they provided a link to the song in the background itself so down the rabbit I went to find Sound Cloud, make a playlist, and dub it my new editing music.
What music gets you through the day or gets you through a writing session? I have a playlist on YouTube I often use along with one of my iTunes playlist, but the Epic Mountain group will probably be my go-to for quite a long time.
