Your Comments, ohhhhhh Fucking Brother(ooooppps) yeah man I feel U! I feel U! Indeed, and this is not what i was exactly gettting at, but it raises a subsidary point(i.e. the many ways in which it is used).............. Yes, H20mice(ha ha no disrespect just being silly) U R correct, many times if not to be distracted or preoccupied, than to draw attention.......... Ambient music is unique in that fashion, it can relax u, and we just love performing Tai-Chi to it! Indeed, Ambient music(and others), but quite ambient allows one to concentrate on what one wants to concentrate on(whether its studying for a test, reading, painting, cleaning, or just contemplation it self)............ Hella comment! Hella........
