Gooning around!

I've just started testing my latest (well, when I say latest, I mean thus far only) anti-tilt theory: Comedy! Going to be playing comedy through my headphones to hopefully keep me calm, rational and fast recovering from bad hands.

It's so obvious and someones (probably) thought of it already, I know, but I tested it in one of today's (saturday) PSO games. Lost a hand, went down from 3K chipstack down to 500 and something. Within a few hands, I was calm again, a few hands after that i had forgotten the bad hand and before long, I was on my way to finishing 53rd and ITM.

For the test, I've started on with a great classic of British comedy: The Goon Show! Created for BBC radio by the legendary Spike Milligan and broadcast in the 1950's, the Goon Show is pure surreal comedy which I would personaly  reccomend, me and a friend from work are constantly leting loose lines from various episodes whilst trudging away working on deliveries at work. So far I've listened to "the Dreaded Batter Pudding Hurler" and "the Histories of Pliny The Elder", and am Busily thinking of what episode to listen to next.
