Life's A Soundtrack
NP - Porcupine Tree - Trains
It's funny when you're walking around campus, or anywhere, with headphones in your ears. Nobody can hear what you're listening to, and you can't hear what anyone else is saying. You can't hear people's footsteps, snatches of conversation, laughs, coughs, everything you normally catch when you're connected. No, the world is silent, and you're the one who's in charge of all sound. The cool part is that you can mould the atmosphere to what you want.
Just try it, really. Its beyond weird...it's hard to describe. Its like if you're listening to happy music, everyone is happy. The world is joyful, the birds are singing (even though you can't see them), etc. And if you're listening to sad music...everyones worried about exams, thinking about ex-girlfriends (this IS the UK - ''What? No girlfriend?...are you...you know, gay?'' *sighs*), etc.
I exaggerate, but its still an interesting effect.
