The Power of White Noise

I have a lot of writing to do. When I need to buckle down and focus, the music is shut off, and I switch over to white noise/ ambient sounds. Which means I am using top-of-the-line noise-cancelling headphones to listen to background noise. Isn’t the 21st Century wonderful?

The video above is one of my favorites. It’s part of the Relax Sleep ASMR channel.

.This is another favorite, from someone who seems to share my taste in movies and SciFi based on their Youtube username.

I just found this one tonight, and I may give it a try.


Tears In The Rain

Is that real?

The arrival of Blade Runner in 1982 was a seminal moment for me. Harrison Ford, fresh from Raiders of the Lost Ark and still frozen in carbonite in The Empire Strikes Back was starring in a movie based on a story from one of my favorite authors, Philip K. Dick.

There are some critical differences between the book Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep and the movie Blade Runner but this still is, and will always be, one of the best adaptations from book to film ever made. If there is an author whose work should be made into a film noir, it’s Dick, and if there is an actor that can play a beautiful, frustrating, flawed, Dick character, he’s Harrison Ford.

So I am nervous about the upcoming sequel and may just skip it.

This fan-made prequel, on the other hand, could not be more dead-on. Enjoy.
