      Hey, I'm a huge baseball fan, and I rarely watch it on TV. I believe
      they have a "20 second rule" that awards that will automatically call
      a Ball if the pitcher doesn't throw the pitch, but umps never enforce it

      That's okay. Hop on board!

      Magma is a decent choice, and I listened to them a lot last year after
      I crashed on my bike and was on crutches for a week (yes, it was my
      knee that was injured). They're a bit too intense though. I'm looking
      for some nice, mellow stuff.

      TD and Fripp's Soundscapes never really did anything for me. "In a
      Silent Way" is a good choice though. I plan on adding some Pat Metheny
      to the playlist - especially "As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita
      Falls." Great album.

      I'm thinking Do Make Say Think would be a good band to cue up. I can
      think of quite a few Italian bands that would work nicely as well -
      maybe I'll even come up with a whole Italian playlist - Osanna, MdC,
      PFM, DFA, Balletto di Bronzo, a little Banco, Finisterre.
