If you'd like to pretend it's raining outside so you have an excuse to stay inside and on reddit.
EDIT: Thanks for the gold. And people are saying to play [link] in another tab. Or use mynoises.net or another site that gives you more options.
Please, open these links in different tabs and then watch the GIF, to understand what I really mean.
Please, open these links in different tabs and then watch the GIF, to get the full effect.
This is a modified version of a submission I did for r/treecomics, but I like how it came out and I wanted to share it with you as well.
TO THE PEOPLE OF THE FUTURE: you have a looooong way ahead of you.
So get classy: sit back, relax and open the following 3 tabs:
Now click, and start your adventure.
There are easier ways to get laid than forcing yourself to watch Twilight. Here is one that's guaranteed to work at least once.
Open these two links in tabs (1 and 2) and put this one on full screen. You can get it to work more than once if you throw in a back rub, dinner, or some kind of favourite item of the intended sexual partner.
There. I just saved you two long, boring, boobless hours.
Time to get classy, Reddit
(from a post ~ 1 year ago)
For added class, save to your desktop a shortcut to open all three.
Copy and paste the following:
>start "" [link]
Save as Classy.Bat
EDIT: This is for Windows only btw
God damn, can you imagine Undertaker walking to the ring to "Ain't No Grave" while it rained? Holy shit.
edit: Open this and this; proceed to shit pants.
This is my favorite combination:
1. open this link in first tab.
2. open this one in another.
3. and, finaly, open this and stay on it
Just gonna tac on to your comment because i feel it is necessary. This is my favorite way to relax: open 3 tabs, each for the rain, fire, and jazz. Enjoy, my friends. I sleep like a baby to this
Also, try turning off the fire. You'll get colder.
Several reasons. Plus a bonus to play in the background while reading my post: [link]
At least in summer, usually when it's raining there's more dampness and coolness in the air, and that makes for a more comfortable sleeping experience, much like surf at a sea or lake shore.
The rain itself generates a very soothing white noise which can help us sleep as well. The pitter-patter and quiet rustling sound of gently falling raindrops hitting the surfaces around us is very relaxing to us.
And it gives us an excuse to nap. I can't go outside and do stuff without getting all wet, so I'll stay here and snooze. Yeah... that sounds great. I think I'll just close my eyes and not worry ab-zzzzzzzzzzzzz......
I spend at least 2-3 hours in bathrobe per day. By bathrobe I mean only bathrobe, nothing under it. Also there is always some music when I'm home mixed with rain and accompanied by hot tea. It always feels classy. I'm a guy..
Rainymood.com has improved since then, and you can now combine it with Youtube videos - like this http://www.rainymood.com/watch?v=HMnrl0tmd3k
That'll save you an entire tab :D
Meh, the creative process is different for different people, some may work better with music and some may work better without. I'm not a designer myself, but when I write/code/have a big project I'm working on I feel much more motivated and productive with Rainymood and the Skyrim OST.
It could very well be a product of acclimatisation (I worked well in the past with music playing, so it puts me in "productive work mode"). In fact, I'm sure it has more to do with that than background noise suddenly giving me brilliant writing powers!
I really appreciate the minor flaws, the fiat implied in her simplicity.
Her tonality is something you'd never hear, but always hope for in a monotonous, tone deaf modern musical scene. She's not a perfect singer, doesn't have the "perfect" body.
She is undeniably, inescapably <em>Real</em>, and that is so much better.
Until someone shares a good audio book I got you covered:
Some of that Shire music
A little bit of rain (click on it's little speaker to soften it)
(/hatwithit) It was dark and stormy night in Canterlot... the only thing wetter that than the faded gray sidewalk outside was my whisky glass but even that would run dry soon. Then she entered... He red dress was a shade shy of her lipstick but just as radiant...
I spent some time last night adding rain to this amazing photo: [link]
I highly commend checking out the rest of their work: [link]
And of course, [link] in the background can't hurt.
The (imho) best combination was proposed to me under a RedditNoir post:
RainyMood + Midnight Walker by Bohren & Der Club of Gore
Then read one of the top comments aloud.
Batman looking over Gotham from the ledge of a building, small murmurs are heard coming from batman as the camera slowly spins around while zooming in slowly, camera stops and you all you see is Batman's eyes really serious look then (que [link]) lightning flashes with the sound of rolling thunder and it begins to rain on the dark nights face water slowly dripping off the nose of his mask...then the murmurs turn into words and he belts out loud into the heavens!!!!
Batman: I can be your hero baby!!! I can kiss away the pain!!!
hears sound and wakes up groggily
looks out the window
"The fu-....OH FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK!"
looks out the window
"What the fuck?! How is this even po-"
beam impacts nearby
"What the fuck!? What the...."
remembers about Joker in ME2
"What the shit? What the shit?!"
grabs his zombie survival kit
Btw, try the above link together with [link]
I've had The fragrance of dark coffee and Rainy Mood bookmarked in my toolbar for a long time (play them together), but I love that yours in condensed into one site (less tabs open!)
I enjoy both versions, but maybe for different moods. Does your site have different music playing each time? I've only had it open for a few minutes. Yours is definitely more relaxed/pensive! I bookmarked it. Thanks for sharing :-)
I use that and two other endless loops as background study noise. I submit them for your enjoyment (yes, open 3 tabs and listen to them all at the same time).
Wait...they removed Rain from WoW?
There was nothing that quite compared to that feeling you get in Ungoro crater when the rain stops, that eerie silence...then you realise you were listening to torrential and oddly calm rain...and you miss it.
For anyone who misses the rains of Africa... [link] (As a South African in Norway, this helps with my homesickness)
Vielleicht für die nächsten Sonntage noch die Anleitung für alle:
Neue Tabs öffnen mit:
zurücklehnen und den Thread genießen!
If you dig around with Chrome after pressing F12, you can even find the .m4a and extract it for non-web-based listening. The storm was made using a variety of creative commons licensed sounds, if I recall correctly.
Staples, like you said: facebook, gmail, youtube, reddit, twitter (3-7 tabs)
Transients: articles from reddit, quick lookups on topics you want to know more about, things to buy on amazon, etc. (0-20 tabs x2 if you are researching/programming)
All the transient tabs you forget about: (20-600 tabs)
So, most people run around 10 active tabs nowadays (if they use a few blog/news sites or reddit). Heavy users and forgetful users can jump up to 30-40 tabs pretty easily.
Look for cool things to have open like [link]
Favorite: rain hitting anything. I love [link] but the real thing is so satisfying.
Least favorite: My old alarm clock. Just that horrifying MEHR MEHR MEHR MEHR sound. I know it's more of the associating it with waking up but it's such a grating noise. I don't even like the calm xylophone sound my iphone makes now because of the association but at least it's not... that.
On the train, at work in the office, at night (our upstair neighbour has some problem with a noisy fridge and he refuses to turn it down)
If I dont have ear plugs handy I just use [link]
for all the newcomers, follow the simple tadallagashsteps before you begin your travels:
>Good evening gentleman/ladies.
>1. Get out your drink of choice.
>2. open 3 tabs on your favorite browser.
>3. On the first tab
>4. On another tab
>5. On the last
This GIF Sound goes best with Rainy Mood.
I've always thought of Parsee's story to be very sad, imagine how many people she seen come and go, and imagine how much she wished to go with them, just to have a glimpse beyond her reality. The pain she carries intensifies with each and every traveller until anger and jealousy finally consumes her. Her past, present, and future will be forever spent in deep jealousy of others. And after you defeat her, she's just thrown aside, hurt and injured, more angry and jealous then before. That just kills me inside.
Artist is awkwardkuroki.
I wish there were more people to post videos, sounds, photos, anything of rain. It's so beautiful, the smell is incredible, the feeling of walking throuh a storm envigorating, witnessing lightning followed by thunder is amazing, or just knowing that it's calm out as the rain washes pollution out of the sky, the streets are empty and there are only fellow rain-lovers out with you. Summer, winter, indoors studying, reading, watching netflix, going for a walk in the city, forest, any place. Rain is incredible. I'd love to see more of it on that sub.
I constantly have this open on my browser.
You probably know this if you love the soundtrack but if you haven't listen to Comptine d'Un Autre Été with Rainy mood at the same time. Gives me an eargasm.
I was listening to this and this, I was just sitting paying no attention to time at all. I was also doing homework so, yeah.
Absolutely beautiful. This game represents some of my fondest memories as a child.
Here's a treat: Open this and this in separate tabs, obtain a beverage of your choice, relax on a comfy chair, and stay classy.
I enjoy sitting quietly with my mind as blank as possible, sometimes with chill instrumental music (or rainymood.com) going in the background, for short lengths of time.
However, I do not ascribe to the beliefs in chakra, chi, or whatnot.
I simply enjoy a quiet, peaceful moment.
Indeed. I actually use this to go to sleep at least two or three nights a week: [link]
This is what rain sounds like. I don't think I've ever heard it rain here, the drops are so tiny they don't make a sound when they hit the ground.
Somebody once shared some really awesome music that went well with this gif.
Open this in one tab. Then open this in another.
Try listening to A, B and C together.
A - Lowest level
B - Maximum level
C - Mid/Maximum level
There was a briliant combination there:
I read the whole thing aloud. That was briliant.
Also can anyone tell me what movie the images were.
Here's the fireplace
And here's the jazz
Annnd here's the rain
Open up all three at the same time and BAM you are now 10 times classier.
Playing the game makes you appreciate the music more, but if you've never played, try this:
Dim or turn off the lights / close your eyes
Halo 3: ODST
Lose yourself in the dark, neon-dotted streets of New Mombasa
Designed by /u/maroslaw. You can find the source on github here. There are alternative backgrounds and rain-types.
Enjoy, with something like Rainymood on an alternate tab.
Cuddling on the couch with a smallish girl at night during a thunderstorm, so I can cover her whole body and make her feel safe. All quiet and peaceful-like. I'm usually stressed out and this is the most relaxing situation I can think of.
I also have career related fantasies about being a successful scientist who still has time and energy to do crazy stuff on the side all the time. On my way to work today I was thinking about how hilarious it would be if a headline read "Nobel Prize winning chemist spills beer on research notes during rager, scientific progress set back 30 years". Of course in this world I'm good enough to still have my job after that.
Hello all. At this point...is it even worth creating a match thread? Each passing day is more and more frustrating. Once again, here is a brief synopsis on the status of this test match.
Please try this out! I generally don't have too much trouble falling asleep these days, but I used to - and sometimes I get bad migraines which make it near impossible to relax enough to sleep. These help so much - I prefer rainymood but a lot of people like the ones with more sound options. Play it from your phone/laptop when trying to sleep.
This gif really sums up me, I think. Which sucks, considering I no longer live in a place where rainfall is plentiful and clean. It's when I sadly remember that that I put on Rainy Mood in the background and let it play all day ♥
My mother can read with the TV turned up and the dogs barking and id still have to call her name 3 or 4 times to get her attention. I never understood it. I have to have silence. But I love rainy mood when i read
The vast majority of the time my headphones are on there's nothing playing, or I'm using rainymood and/or simplynoise (brown noise + occillation sounds like an ocean).
Noise cancelling, over the ear, headphones are key.
Hi! I finally have an idea and have improved my writing skills enough to make a game that I think I actually want to publish (probably as a single-page web app that's free to use with minimal advertising akin to patatap or rainymood).
And now I have several questions, such as:
P.S. If these questions are too basic (answered elsewhere in layman's terms) feel free to tell me to google harder. The answers I've found so far just have entirely too much legalese for me to wrap my head around the basic ideas (I know I'll have to dig much deeper for exact answers and deal with that legalese at some point though).
If you like the sound of rain as well, here's a combo you might like, full of nostalgia: Skyrim Full Original Soundtrack.
It's nice to have playing in the background while you do other stuff.
(/flutterblush) Thanks Luna. Really, thank you, that means a lot.
(/sp) (/wahaha) And look who's talking Mr. Talkedtomeconsitentlysincetacolefttohelpmecope.
(/rdsmile) I hope you'll be good soon.
And now you've all gone and got me into a rain mood.
Now just open these links in different tabs:
(From some old reddit comment I can't find anymore, probably from askreddit)
Lightning Bug is quite good, although I prefer to listen to the James Dueck Rain Storm mp3 featured on RainyMood.
That's one of the songs linked by the "stay classy gentleman" list if I remember correctly - you're supposed to open it up with this trickling across your senses and this bad boy crackling on your screen in 720p.
Yea thought the same thing... but that's because you didn't mention it was you... and the way it's written it seems that way. :) You look like a cool guy :) also upvoted for loving the rain...
A lot of things actually.
Sometimes I use rainforest sounds, like those from This site.
Mostly I just put on whatever I'm watching and doze off. Scrubs, Scooby Doo, anything that can keep playing while I sleep.
On the regular site they put some new recordings in there where the mic doesn't record the sound range properly. The original 30 minute loop is what my wife an I fall asleep to every night/
Get in sleep wherever you can. Doesn't matter if it's 3 PM or 3 AM. Don't worry about messing up your sleep cycle, it's already boned anyway.
Try to get in at least 90 minutes per nap, but you won't shoot yourself in the foot if it's a shorter power nap.
Avoid caffeine today if you can, otherwise it'll be hard to fall asleep despite how tired you feel. It's pretty frustrating, and the frustration + stress doesn't make things easier. Pound as much caffeine as you want for the final stretch, though!
I used RainyMood to chill me out and block out any distracting noises.
Good call with the fruit and carbs. Keep those levels up!
Take a walk around the block every once in a while. It'll clear your head, which probably feels all dull and staticy right now.
Trance! Yes... often. :]
edit:bricks and mortar
more edit: Pink sunsets do that to me, and deserts, too...
even more edit: if you haven't seen the RainyMood before give it a go!
I hope the tea helps. Also, I suggest Rainy Mood and a relaxing instrumental piece from youtube. You can just add the last half of the youtube video URL to the end of the rainymood link, and they'll play in the same tab. It's wonderful for helping with bad moods.
I usually find a fan (like plug in your wall outlet standard run of the mill fan) and turn it on facing my body. Then since it's cold, I snuggle under the blankets and fall asleep quicker. I like the cold. It helps me sleep.
edit: I just remember this website, it's a constant loop of the sound of rain. super relaxing c:
One of the youtube comments said to play this and this in other tabs while watching. It was surreal.
I have no direct experience, but I can tell you that there is no, nadda, zero, zip clinical evidence showing that any herbal remedy or other "alternative medicine" would have any effect on tinnitus. My mother practices acupuncture and hasn't ever suggested it as a treatment for my tinnitus--based on the academic literature, acupuncture might have a mild effect on certain types of pain, but outside of that it's relatively pointless (pun only partially intended). Treatment options are unfortunately fairly limited, but consult with your local ENT doc to get a better idea of what options might be available for your tinnitus (causes of tinnitus vary widely, and as a result so do available treatment options). Outside of what your doctor can recommend, your main options for "treatment" are your pick of white/pink noise or just some kind of background sounds.
And while the other 2 are playing...
Maxence Cyrin's piano cover of <em>Where is my mind</em> by the Pixies.
Add a bit of Rainy Mood and you've got yourself a killer combo.
Bob Acri's Sleep Away
Fragrance of Dark Coffee
Seems like Jazz is the best that go with rainymood.
Go watch kitten videos. Nothing better than kitten videos to stop anxiety (or at least, I find it good for stopping panic attacks). Also, rain sounds.
Oh, da hatte ich dich auch falsch verstanden. Aber gut, kommt Zeit, kommt Fahrrad. :)

The sweet, sweet sound of a thunderstorm, makes me sleep like a baby. Perhaps because I grew up on the savanna's of southern Africa, where we had daily thunderstorms in the afternoon, which was a good time to catch a nap.
Yeah, because for those who benefit the most from white noise, sometimes music itself is either distracting or not enough to reduce distractions.
This is also a good tool: [link]
Ocean noise works too. But I can't pretend I'm on the beach, and sometimes I need a change from the rain noise. Being in front of a computer screen with the noises listed above, I might actually believe I'm at warp speed. Perhaps I'm trapped at warp speed and feverishly programming the solution from scratch that will bring us back out and save everyone.
Oh, you know.
I meant the direct links, not the link to the site you said had all of them I assumed you already had them, but I guess not. Here:
When I looked at the title of your post, it was funny because I was like:
"Oh my goodness I actually have a TOMT right in my bookmark bar
I'm watching this with Rainy Mood, and right as the damn bear comes romping out of the woods, thunder rumbles through my bass-heavy headphones. Needless to say, perfect soundtrack.
yup, there's something oddly satisfying and cozy about sitting on your couch, a warm cup of coffee, watching a quiet tv show, while listening to the rain pattering against the windows.
Every now and again I'll sit at working listening to this just for that cozy warm feeling at work.
This with this and this playing in the background.
Edit: I wish I were lying next to her right now.
Hold up, I remembered that I have updated links bookmarked.
Yes, this is how it was, originally.
My comment from /r/Cinemagraphs
> I spent some time last night adding rain to this amazing photo: [link]
I highly commend checking out the rest of their work: [link]
And of course, [link] in the background can't hurt.
I love the intro to Space Lion...but you gotta give the piano some credit where it's due: [link]
For added effect, open this in another tab and click the speaker icon to turn the volume down a bit: [link]
It looks like we'll have [some] play today! The question is - how much? To repeat myself from yesterday - Can Vijay reach his hundred? Will Dhawan get a double? Or can Bangladesh pull things back?
If you're unable to be in Fatullah this week and feel like you're missing out, let me help you.
Music only gets me distracted. I don't understand why music could make someone concentrate better, but it works for some people. Something that could work for me is something like [link] but I live in a small village so I can usually just open the windows.
I guess it can drown out distractions caused by things around you. If there are two people talking to eachother next to you which annoys you, I guess playing some music will work because you are less or not annoyed by the music and you can't hear the two people talking anymore. So my guess is it's really dependent on your situation, but it just seems illogical to me that adding noise allows you to concentrate more on something else.
Headphones. Good ones. Not noise-cancelling (those don't work for office noises, for the most part), just really nice closed, circumaural headphones or well-fitting IEMs. People really like the ATH-M50x. I use Denon D600s. Stream music if you can handle it, else stream something less visceral like Rainy Mood or white noise.
Try to stack things or orient your monitors to make more of a barrier to visual distractions. If you have conference rooms or "huddle" rooms and a laptop, see if you can go in their to focus for a couple of hours.
See if it's possible to work from home more? That's what I do. These days, I practically work from home one day a week, give or take. Or work odd hours. These days, I also tend to work from like 10am or 11am until 7pm, and the hours between 4pm and 6pm tend to be very quiet and lonely.
(/derpyhappy)Wait about thirty seconds.
Also, for a second I thought Yuna's Ballad was going to be this.
I listen to different types of music depending on how high I am. I try not to listen to the same music all the time, although Modest Mouse is an exception. Something else I like to listen to while high is this album while I simultaneously have this website opened in another tab.
Mainly, when you're tripping on anything, it's best to stick to what you know you already like and maybe branch outward slightly. If you like it sober you'll love it and appreciate it even more while tripping.
If you're listening to new stuff you haven't explored even while sober it helps to be able to quickly default back to an album/playlist etc. that you KNOW you like so you can put yourself into a better mindspace.
That said, I always recommend Tiamat's Teonanacatl (Flesh of the gods -- refers directly to psilocybin mushrooms so the song is about magic mushrooms) on shrooms to people as it's mellow, dreamy, melodic, and still has some rock to it. It's got all that and it's a relaxing tune. It's about tripping on shrooms anyway. :)
If you just want something natural and melodic, well, there's this site!
[link] --- A recording of a rain/thunder storm. :)
Lyrics: [link] --- :
Not far from where I live
They glance in morning breeze
As dividing tiny rays
A morning tries to seize
Greet me my proud little soldiers
Of brown, purple and grey
Carry us on your shoulders
Carry us far away
If you begin to fall
Please have some more
You could stay at my place if you want
I'll sleep on the floor
In shades of purple cloth
They guide us to the light
With irresistable pride
To the feast they us invite
(For long and faithful service)

Alright, that's a solid answer. Whenever you're next able, see about getting some shut eye. If you have trouble here are a couple sites dedicated to "sleep noise" that may help:
This might not be much, but it's a start and being well rested in itself may provide some form of comfort. Baby steps.
Are you ready, darling? I've poured you both a glass of wine and some hot chocolate; take your pick. Get all cozy with your laptop, snuggled up under a blanket on the couch. I've dimmed the lights to heighten the mood, because I've prepared a special experience for you, dear. Open each of these in a new tab, and keep the third tab on your screen. The whole experience is completed with a neck and shoulder massage.
Tab Three (Make full screen and leave on the monitor.)
You're a treasure, and you deserve this.
> My favorite soundtrack to reading is the sound of a thunderstorm. Since I don't have powers over the elements yet, I can arrange for a reasonable substitute by setting my white noise generator to "rainstorm".
Okay, in that case, I would also like to post this. Not technically music. Unless.. unless if you think rain is nature's music (so cheesy! Sorry, I just studied water so much in grad school that I can't help it... I wake up to this every morning that it doesn't rain).
Thanks for the feedback! It is nice to read that people like it. :) For those who are wondering, here are the sources I've used:
The Artwork (1920*1080)
Soundcloud of Ashley Johnson
Was about to post that... God damnit, I didn't come here asking for feels. ;_;
(Open this over the song if you're feeling brave.)
I'm fine with sunny days, but as long as it's below 70° F (since I get light-sensitive migraines very often and I hate the heat).
While I like the rain, pre-storm time is my absolute favorite. Have you heard of Rainy Mood? I love the sound of rain—it's my favorite type of white noise.
Time for a little bit of Reddit history:
For the classiest experience this side of the galaxy, open all three of these tabs at once and mix the volumes till they feel right:
Right there with you, I have to be up at 5:30 to get my nephews fed and ready for school... it's currently 1:45.... my problem is I took a late nap... bad decision.....
Try this site, it may help lull you to sleep: [link]
I think I actually lifted this from the last time this song was posted on r/music, but anyway here's the RainyMood website to play in the background while you play Aqueous Transmission.
Rain and light thunder
Constantly on loop. The jazz might get old as the night goes on, but I can't find anything as good as this.
The YT comments said to load up [link] in the background while listening to this. I tried and it's sooo perfect. Saria's Song sounds amazing with the sound of soft rain in the background...
edit: stupid typo...
Oh dude, classical songs are the best. Coming from an atheist, love the shit out of "Sweet Silver Bells" among quite a few others. The cultural and historical aspects of our heritage as a whole just fascinates the shit out of me.
Allow me to share the good wealth of some linkage!
And for added awesome, to be played alongside that.
I know it isn't related to the music question, but would you have any idea how ambient noise relates to information uptake?
I usually use RainyMood with headphones while studying or working and find that it really improves my concentration levels.
