Music or Movies?

Which do you prefer?

I'm a music person. I can enjoy a good film (and even some of the bad ones) but fundamentally I'm a music person.
I can sit down and listen to an album from start to finish in silence, enjoy it, and 'soak it in' in the same way many other people only enjoy TV and films.

Maybe some people need the visual stimuli, such as Mrs Fubar. She cannot just sit and listen to something. She either reads, or types on her laptop, or gets bored and falls asleep.

Ultimately, I'd rather sit with headphones on and listen to a play on the radio than watch a dramatization of the same story on TV. Paradoxically I find it more involving.

Music, hardly ever seen any good films.

Listen to the music, not the hifi.

Sadly, I think the likes of us are a dieing breed... can't beat a good talking book too!.

RE: Music or Movies?

Most of the time I'm busy doing other things when I listen to music but I also enjoy listening without any other distractions too.

 

What type of media do I enjoy the most?

Music first, computer games second and TV third.

Correct, but many these days seem to be dictated by computer-generated text-to-speech programs, which I seriously don't like in a major way.

Have heard of this, but thankfully not listened to any... local library has pretty good selection with excellent, usually actors for readers.

RE: Music or Movies?

That's a good question -

Movies are great, but once you've watched one and seen 'who done it' etc. I can't be bothered to sit through it all over again - but with music, I must have listened to some of the 70's albums, literally thousands of times...

RE: Music or Movies?

Music for me. I sometimes sit for hours just listening and relaxing, you can't beat it.

I love movies but only watch them here and there mostly with the other half.

RE: Music or Movies?

If I had two hours to kill and no one else is at home, I will almost always go for a movie over music.  I don't really watch much TV, so I will listen to music when I have short chunks of time up to an hour or so.
