getting hyped up to grade
When faced with a stack of things to grade, I find that firing up the iPod and listening to the Sky Captain
soundtrack really gets me going. Seriously. That first 1:07 track ("The World of Tomorrow") is really inspiring. I'd share it, but I bought it via iTunes so, you know, DRM'd and all that and I don't have the tools handy to get around it.
But, the first track IS only a minute long, so if you listen to an iTunes clip or a clip at Amazon
, you can get the gist. Or not. I could be completely unique in this feeling.
