Listening to the Same Music Every Day


When I’m developing software I like to listen to music. The only problem is I’ve been listening to the same music playlist for 4 years. But I’m not the only one, and the problem isn’t that bad honestly. I wanted to write this post in case anyone else out there is wondering if it’s strange to listen to the same music every day. I think a lot of people have a favorite playlist, but if a neighbor heard you playing the same songs every darn day then they might start you judge you. Not that we should change just because someone judges us, but I understand their perspective. It’s odd to play the same songs every day, I mean every single day!

So if you’re like me and do the same thing, this should make you feel better. I have no intention of changing my playlist any time soon and if you love your music then you shouldn’t feel pressured to change your playlist unless you want to. And we’re not the only ones, too. There are many of us, and I’ve met some of them. In my favorite Subway, a sandwich artist I’ve gotten to know works weekends only, and every time I go in there he has the same music on. He says he wouldn’t work there if he wasn’t allowed to play his own music, and his manager respects that.

Another person I know who listens to the same music everyday is a tow truck driver in Red Deer, Alberta. He’s an awesome dude, and listens to the same reggae mixtape. I always call his cell for a personal tow truck service even though he works for a legit towing Red Deer company because I know there will be good music while he services my vehicle. The same goes for my favorite corner store and the janitor in my building. We all do it, so don’t feel ashamed if you listen to the same music every day too.

My playlist pumps me up and gets me going, and other music doesn’t do that. It’s taken a life time to make my playlist and I may never change it for decades.

If you still think there’s not enough of us, here’s a list of all the other people I know who listen to the same music every day:

  1. My dentist’s secretary
  2. My old history teacher
  3. My old soccer coach
  4. This guy I did some programming with a while back
  5. A dude I met on a software forum

If you have a playlist you want to share with us, we’d love to check it out. Respect!

A Towing Video Game Idea

Have you ever played the video game Grand Theft Auto and just had fun doing all the tow truck missions? I sure did. That’s partly why I came up with an idea for a towing video game. Here’s where I’ll explain my idea.

To get started I’ll expound on who I think would do a great job at making this video game. The towing in Grand Theft Auto is already amazing, though a bit clunky. And I’m talking about GTA 5, not the older ones, although you can still do towing in the older ones. Because they did such a great job with it I think this tow truck game would be best if was made by Rockstar Games, the same people who made GTA.

Now before I describe the details of the game let me tell you why I think this game would be so fun. I don’t think it would be something tow truck drivers would want to play but all the gamers who love truck simulator games might jump all over it. And if you added humor to the game by making it a bit goofy and exciting it might be even more fun.

Towing Missions

For missions I got some good ideas. To start, the gamer will have to get good at reversing the tow truck in first person, using the rear view mirrors to line the truck up. Then, he’ll have to get out of the truck to hook it up while people are coming up and trying to fight you. Kind of like repossession. But when you get the car hooked up to the hitch, you’ll have to escape from pursuers. These are no ordinary towing missions. These are dangerous, high risk and high reward challenges in an open world. And you’re not allowed to hurt anyone so every time you crash you fail.

Later, when you’re a higher level in the game, the missions will get harder and when you accept repossession contracts from government agents you’ll have more freedom to crash and speed. I got another good idea from a friend who does towing Barrie Ontario services. He told me that the hardest part of towing is making sharp turns in tight corners, especially when you’re towing something large. So I think a good mini game for side missions would be to drift on a track while doing heavy duty towing.

This would be the perfect game to hook up a steering wheel to because, although it’s not a racing game, it’s all about your virtual driving skills. So the driving physics should be ultra realistic even though the game is goofy in nature. You could also make it more simulator-like by getting rid of the goofy aspects but then I might not play it. If someone makes this game I want it to be fun.

Any Ideas?

If you like this idea and have any opinions or ideas to make it even better, then please contact me because in the future I might be getting in touch with a developer to make it a reality. So far it’s just an idea and I’d be glad if someone else made it so I don’t have to. Consider this idea in the public domain. But I’d still like to hear any ideas you might have.

Thanks for checking this out. The video game industry is still very young and it’s up to young people to continue it into the future. So follow your dreams and let’s make it happen!
