PKD's music playlist

October's over (actually, it's October 23rd as I write this, just to give you an indication of how I sometimes write stuff in advance... Present Me, your Past Me, is twenty minutes away from the release of Civilization: Beyond Earth and he's super excited). So it's back to the usual here at The Goug' Blog: mostly science fiction.

Like free music? Chorus of headbangers fist the air and scream: "Yeaaaaah!"

PKD, proving all writers should have beards

Open Culture has compiled a playlist of the music Philip K. Dick may have listened to while writing. From their page:

What did Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and A Scanner Darkly author Philip K. Dick, that visionary of our not-too-distant dystopian future, listen to while he crafted his descriptions of grim, psychologically (and sometimes psychedelically) harrowing times ahead? Mozart. Beethoven. Mahler. Wagner.
Go straight to the Spotify page here.

So how's the future, future folk? More of the same? No alien invasions yet? Good, good. It's not even November yet in my timeline, but I can already tell it's going to be a busy month.
