My latest TV obsession is Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. It’s an Australian Broadcasting Company show that’s how streaming on Netflix.
There’s a lot to like, especially the costumes: the show takes place in 1920s Melbourne. It’s fun and formulaic, too: someone dies, Miss Fisher’s called in, she battles with the local detective, maybe someone else dies, and then the mystery is solved. It’s like Law & Order with much better costumes and music.
I watch this a lot when I’m working on tedious stories (they can’t all be exciting folks). I usually have something in the background while I’m working, so here’s a post about what I listen to when:
Normal workday: iTunes on shuffle, Your Favorite Coffee House, Mood Booster or Smart is the New Sexy channels on Spotify.
Tedious work: Right now, Miss Fisher, but I’m also partial to really bad sex comedies of the 1960s. Netflix has too many.
Science or construction articles: When something’s really technical, I switch to classical music, either WRTI or the Whispering Solo Piano station on iTunes.
Revising articles when the edits make sense: Tron: Legacy soundtrack or the Club Dubstep channel on Spotify.
Revising articles when the editor has lost his/her mind: Death metal.
