uptempo music + headphones = progress (we hope)

Dearest nerdiverse, through problems not of my own making* I am wearing headphones for about eight hours straight every day, and will likely be doing so every workday for the rest of this month.  As a result, I have a serious, dire, and immediate need to rock out.

See http://www.last.fm/user/domesticat for everything I've listened to since 2004, or better yet see this subpage for what I've listened to in the past year.

Suggestions welcomed, in that wet and sloppy kiss kind of way.



Addendum the first:

* By this I mean we're without a HVAC system at work until the new one is installed, so to keep the production servers cool we're running multiple fans, two window-sized A/C units, and one ancient whole-room system within a few feet of my desk. The resulting ambient noise is at about 100dB and everyone in the department is wearing headphones constantly so they can think over the ThunderDome roar.**

Addendum the second:

** I would also advise not trying to call me at work. I can barely hear the phone.

Addendum the third:

I recommend my newest source of beats: FoundationKL.org :) Lots of long mixes that I've had a fair bit of success coding to. 

I highly approve of panic at the disco, though my tastes have been (out of character) somewhat sloewr in the past few months, so I don't have a lot to suggest and nothing to offer except sympothies
