What TV or cable series do you watch/listen to while painting up your armies?

14Bore18 Nov 2023 6:49 a.m. PST

YouTube videos or podcasts, hard to watch and paint, but history videos you can follow along looking up when needed.

Nothing, most of the time. Sometimes I'll put something on for background noise. Whatever looks interesting at the time.

GildasFacit Sponsoring Member of TMP18 Nov 2023 7:16 a.m. PST

Nothing, far too distracting. Do sometimes have music on in the background but not often. I like quiet.

Deucey Supporting Member of TMP18 Nov 2023 7:40 a.m. PST

Mostly whatever my wife happens to be watching.

Personal logo miniMo Supporting Member of TMP18 Nov 2023 7:45 a.m. PST

Whatever DVD set goes well with the current project.

I listen to music while painting.

Skyrim series on YouTube. There are several variations that provide beautiful scenery and virtual tours of Skyrim, and enjoyable even though some themes loop.

I mostly just listen to it in the background. Using surround sound enhances the experience while painting. The bonus is I get terrain and painting inspiration from the Skyrim series.

It's varied over the years. Mostly Audible and YouTube nowadays.

Greg G118 Nov 2023 8:50 a.m. PST

None, but BBC6 music.

DisasterWargamer Supporting Member of TMP18 Nov 2023 8:55 a.m. PST

None – music if anything

Darrell B D Day18 Nov 2023 9:19 a.m. PST

Recordings (audio only) of old Test Match ball-by-ball commentary. I'm currently on Pakistan v England, 2015.

Watch? Nothing. My eyes are already busy.

Grattan54 Supporting Member of TMP18 Nov 2023 10:17 a.m. PST

Nothing, I paint in my basement.

rmaker18 Nov 2023 10:25 a.m. PST

Nothing. Sometimes listen to (more or less) period music.

rustymusket18 Nov 2023 11:22 a.m. PST

Either nothing (mostly) or listen to music.

Personal logo Herkybird Supporting Member of TMP18 Nov 2023 11:32 a.m. PST

I, too, listen to music while painting!

14Bore18 Nov 2023 12:36 p.m. PST

I paint in my basement, wi-fi goes there

Personal logo PzGeneral Supporting Member of TMP18 Nov 2023 1:11 p.m. PST

Mystery Science Theater 3000 or Riff Trax on Pluto TV streaming on my phone or tablet…

Personal logo ColCampbell Supporting Member of TMP18 Nov 2023 2:14 p.m. PST

Just music – country, military, bagpipes.


robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP18 Nov 2023 3:08 p.m. PST

I play radio drama or music. Why would I watch something while trying to paint?

machinehead Supporting Member of TMP18 Nov 2023 3:14 p.m. PST

I listen to MSNBC.

JMcCarroll18 Nov 2023 3:33 p.m. PST

Music or listen to whatever my wife is watching.

myxemail18 Nov 2023 3:48 p.m. PST

Nothing. I do not watch the TV or movies while painting. I might listen to music, but usually quiet peaceful time while I paint

ZULUPAUL Supporting Member of TMP18 Nov 2023 3:51 p.m. PST

I don't watch TV while painting. I listen to music or just enjoy silence.

ecaminis Supporting Member of TMP18 Nov 2023 5:44 p.m. PST

I watch historical documentaries I have dvr'd. Mostly just listen and then complain in my mind how they got it wrong.

Bunkermeister Supporting Member of TMP18 Nov 2023 6:22 p.m. PST

Audio books streaming on line.
On line news and documentary videos.
The Avengers, The New Avengers, and other random spy, police, military, historic, sci fi movies that interest me in the moment.

Shows that I can follow just by listening most of the time. House, Criminal Minds, Law and Order SVU. Or shows and movies ive watched so often I don't need to see. Stargate franchise. John Wayne movies.

Mad Anthony Jones18 Nov 2023 9:58 p.m. PST

Country Family Reunion. I can listen to old timers doing classic country music without having to watch. They're OLD!
Or Larry's Country Diner. Same band, same vibe.

HansPeterB18 Nov 2023 10:23 p.m. PST

Mostly, I listen to music, but during the appropriate season I'll listen to baseball.

microgeorge Supporting Member of TMP19 Nov 2023 8:48 a.m. PST

Either football or Joe Rogan podcasts.

pmwalt19 Nov 2023 4:01 p.m. PST

I normally will listen to Classical music while painting.

Martin Rapier20 Nov 2023 8:17 a.m. PST

I sometimes listen to music while painting, but rarely watch TV. The only exception was the second season of Good Omens.

I had it on, but as it wasn't very good, it just meant I could tick it off as watched, while just paying attention to the rare funny bits.

Personal logo Wolfshanza Supporting Member of TMP20 Nov 2023 10:13 p.m. PST

Radio (smooth jazz) music in the background. White noise :)
