    or work on them etc?

    I just listened to Stevie Wonder's Original Musiquarium I and am now listening to Willie Nelson's Teatro. Sometimes it's Marley, Robin Trower or newer heavy alternative, seems listening to good tunes is part of the process for me...

    Usually i listen to the fan whirling around and my wife saying, 'i can smell that stuff in the house!'

    Which means i have to move further away.

    Mostly I have some sort of movie playing on the computer (I only have one desk, and it has my computer on it. The guns, of course, are also cleaned on this desk, and I C-clamp my reloading press there too...). Rarely do I have just music playing.

    Last time it was the Best of Motorhead. Needless to say, I was alone while this was happening. Usually, I have the TV on.

    I watch the X-files. The aliens and other really weird ones remind me what I keep the guns clean.

    Usually I'm watching a John Wayne movie, but if not that it's usually Rush, or something in the blues area SRV, Howling Wolf, or any of the Kings. Also like some of the young white boys, Lang, Sheppard and the like.

    Depends on the mood. When I can get over the cliche: old Metallica, older Pantera, Strapping Young Lad, Dropkick Murphys. When I'm feeling kinda funny: The Avalanches, Boards of Canada, Portishead, Morcheeba. When I'm feeling up: Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald, BB King, Muddy Waters. When I'm feeling down: Robert Johnson (a must have for any man that may ever have to clean a gun).

    That about covers it.

    Usually, the voices in my head. I think they come from the satellite. :p

    Nothing. I clean guns outdoors in the sunshine and listen to the birds chirp.

    Ususlly listen to my SW when cleaning or working on weapons.
    If I need music, something with ENERGY. Music without energy puts me to sleep.

    I usually put a movie on the computer while cleaning guns. I prefer wonderfully bad movies, like "Hackers", "Soldier", "Tron", or "The Chronicles of Riddick". Good movies like "The Incredibles" or "Ronin" just distract me.

    Since I started using my basement workshop it can be Warren Zevon, Toby Keith, Shania Twain, or Rush, Sean and Mark Lavine on AM.

    I usually have a good movie in my DVD player...like "Heat" or "Blackhawk Down" ..... something that will inspire me to clean!

    p.s. speaking of Rush, a few years ago i was working part time for a radio station and i got into their sound check at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in San Antonio.....

    Personally, I listen to classic rock radio stations, or one of my 50+ CDs. Seems appropriate--old music to listen to while cleaning old guns :) . The repetoire of what I won't listen to is a bit larger--rap, modern stuff, etc. just my few pennies worth.

    I'm boring.

    I always listen to/watch what play in my home 90% of the time. The Trance stream from http://www.digitallyimported.com/. Watch 'cause' I pipe the WinAmp visualization out to the TV, while the audio goes to the household sound system.
