You guys like to have something while you listen?

I like to have a drink. It does not have to be alcoholic, NTTIAWWT, but I like to have a drink with me when I sit down to listen. I also like to have my wife or daughter with me to listen and share the experience, but that is off topic!

I don't like having a magazine, though I will read the album artwork while I listen. A cigar would be great, but not even I like the house smelling like cigars.

What about you blokes?

depends on what time of day and what I'm listening too

Late night and Beethoven's 6th? Glass of red wine.
Early morning and Bill Monroe? Coffee.
Late afternoon and Pink Floydd? Tea.
A bit later than that, and Springstein? Beer.

listening indulgement preference

It has a name, but for the sake of legality, let's call it Green tea!

Being green

...I like a Sol mexican beer, twist of lemon, Twang beer salt on the rim and some choice 'herbal' supplements when the opportunity arises :)

It depends..........

Mainly it's the time of day. For reasons both traditional and personal, I rarely drink anything alcoholic before 5PM. But if it's a night time listening session, alone or with friends: wine, single-malt scotch, maybe something mixed with vodka. During th day it'll be coffee or nothing. Depending on the genre I often like to read while listening, though favorite songs or sections get full attention.

my listening accompaniment...

a great beer can go a long way. when you're listening and enjoying, you can enjoy it slowly and really let that buzz steep. i also really like wearing sweatpants when seriously digging some music -- comfort is key.

comfort

Comfort is a good addition for sure. A good listening perch, comfortable clothes, dim the lights, nothing too distracting. But then there are times when I get home and the house is quiet and I just plop down and put something on. I guess it depends on how badly I need it!
