You might recognize the name SupraDarky if you browse YouTube for videos of videogame music. Does "Best VGM" ring any bells? It should! On NeoGAF, he's got a thread about a new playlist that's been tried and tested for studying and/or relaxing:
"A couple months ago, I completed my Master and decided to upload the playlist that helped me go through most of my studies. I've been getting tons of great feedback with a lot of people saying it's helping them as well. It's still growing (about 4 hours of music right now). You end up associating the tracks with studying, which allows you to immediately turn your concentration on when needed in a pleasant way. I still use this playlist to surf the web sometimes as well."
I'm unsure what the schedules for midterms and finals are like elsewhere, but my ears will surely appreciate the work that went into this project as I complete my descent into madness once and for all over the next two weekends.
