I would say if it's severe separation anxiety like Beric had, the treats aren't going to be enough. We give our other two dogs those treats before car rides and it seems to help them.

As for the other things we tried before the Fluoxetine: We tried music, we left the TV on, we gave him very long walks before we left (and still do), and we got him a Kong and filled it with peanut butter, froze it, and gave it to him before we left. We even tried one of those Thundershirts. Unfortunately, none of that seemed to be enough (he started to have really bad stomach problems from the anxiety) so our vet recommended Fluoxetine and that has seemed to have the greatest effect.

In a couple of months, we're planning on weening him off the Fluoxetine and finding some combination of the above to work.

The Digital Domain: A Demonstration. Used copies on Amazon seem pretty cheap.

u/dbx99 · 7 pointsr/videos

as I understand it, Deep Note shows up in a 1983 demo CD released in called The Digital Domain.

It was generated by a C program written by Dr. James A. Moorer when he was working for Lucasfilm. Its first use was before "Return of the Jedi" as far as I know. IIRC, it was semi-random, and they recorded quite a few versions as it ran through the algorithm until they got one they liked.

If you like this, you have to see Heima.

I'll have to give it a shot, I usually don't like sorting by genre though. Also, quickly found this, which quickly lead to this. Go figure one is twice the price.

u/manatee1010 · 3 pointsr/Dogtraining

I have a Marpac Dohm white noise machine and use it in the highest setting. The most important thing is putting it between your dog and where they're hearing noises.

If you want soothing music in addition, it certainly wouldn't hurt to try. The Through A Dog's Ear collections (like this one) are supposed to have been clinically demonstrated to help reduce anxiety. :)

Ps. Don't be averse to medication. I have a dog with separation anxiety. We work with a veterinary behaviorist and medication had a huge role in improving his quality of life! I don't regret it for a second... it's really hard on a dog to be experiencing intense anxiety every moment they're alone.

u/hpliferaft · 2 pointsr/tipofmytongue

That's not an uncommon trope in rap. I can't think of any specific outros like that, but maybe it's from Deltron 3030? Or Liquid Swords.

Or ELE by Busta Rhymes:_The_Final_World_Front). Or Method Man's Tical 2000.

u/RadOwl · 2 pointsr/Dreams

Perhaps what would help most right now is a good night of sleep. 5mg of melatonin might do the trick. It can help you stay asleep. If you are willing to try relaxation music, I suggest playing this or this. I have used the music in the second link -- have the CD in my library. It's classical music with a subliminal track added. It's fucking peaceful man. It helped someone I know who had terrible sleep issues.

Lack of REM sleep can play all sorts of havoc on your mind and body. It creates huge mood swings, clouds your thinking, causes weird physical sensations. Light in the room where you sleep can mess with you big time, especially blue LED light. My modem and router both have bright blue LED lights, and both devices are in my bedroom, so I use an eye mask. I also have a loud fan to create white noise. Otherwise, I'm fucking worthless without enough good sleep.

I know some breathing techniques and can link you to some resources if you're willing to give them a try. You gotta want to help yourself though. The dream you had shows some serious inner conflict. The dream characters that shoot you and Josh are representations of parts of yourself. They are your anger, your pain, your defiance, your bitterness. Dying in a dream is a way of saying you are dying inside, or that something about yourself needs to recede so that you can mature. Or both. I see in the dream that you are trying to help yourself -- at least on some level you're trying -- but I also have the sense that you are attached to your pain and anger and disappointment. They have become part of who you are and how you present yourself to the world. They are ingrained into your belief system. They protect you. What would you do without them? Who would you be without them? What if that's what's keeping you alive?

I can't sit here and pretend to know you well enough to offer good advice, or tell you that life is worth living, or that there really is love in this world. But I can say that I hear you, and I know a lot about pain and anger and disappointment and stress and bitterness and addiction. I can say that from my experience I know that if you really want shit to get better, it can. I can point you toward some resources that help me.

I began with "Breathing: The Master Key" by Andrew Weil. It starts with simply breathing deeply and slowly, using your diaphragm to fully open and close your lungs, then teaches some other breathing exercises. Now that I know the trick of breathing with my stomach and fully opening my lungs I do it all the time. But I used to be really tight in my chest and rarely breathed fully. Insufficient O2 creates a constant feeling of panic because your cells are screaming for what they need. It a huge relief when you breathe correctly. You can find Weil's techniques on Youtube.

Good luck. Get some sleep. Take care of yourself. And maybe ttyl.

u/ZoeTheFrenchie · 2 pointsr/Dogtraining

We haven't tried a white noise machine, but Through A Dog's Ear has a marked affect on both of our dogs (one frenchie and one rescue mix of GSD/BC/Beagle/Etc.). Full disclosure: it makes humans sleepy too.


Food puzzles are great (snuffle mats, puzzles, Squirrel Dudes, Kongs, etc.). If your dog has absence anorexia, then do the puzzles before you go so at least his brain got some exercise. :)


If it is separation anxiety, you'll need to desensitize him since it is a panic disorder. Long road - best wishes!


Edit: yelling at someone in the middle of a panic attack is counter productive so I wouldn't recommend recording any 'angry' voice anything. Please don't punish the dog for something out of their control. :( And I wouldn't up the anty with adding food to your return = the good noms happen when mom/dad returns but not when they aren't there. Again, seems counter productive.

Spiderland is really cheap right now on Amazon by the way.

u/shiny_brine · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

Check out "If I Were a Carpenter". It's an album of recent bands covering songs of The Carpenters.

Cracker's cover of Rainy Days and Mondays is pretty nice.

u/geekgirlpartier · 2 pointsr/AskReddit
u/Leeloo_Sebat-Dallas · 2 pointsr/IAmA

Well this sucks... I lost my hard drive a few months ago, and only had a back-up from a few years ago. I thought it would be on there but it looks like it wasn't. I'm super bummed. Sorry to over-sell! Although this is a great excuse to watch it all over again...

*edit - Okay so this album is an excellent start. I'm also going to go through here to see if anything pops out at me that I can remember.

u/_xyzzy_ · 2 pointsr/tolkienfans

The Time Life Classical Thunder CDs are great for a lot of books. Though you can find playlists on YouTube that will do the same job for less monies.

u/PirateKilt · 2 pointsr/Military

You could always just check Amazon

There is a vendor on discogs from the UK although it looks overpriced. It also looks like amazon UK has it.

u/lethia01 · 1 pointr/dogs
"Through a Dog's Ear" music will put my dog to sleep within 4 minutes of playing it. I usually have it going in my car when we go for a longish car ride.

You can also find it on Spotify.

u/blindlikeacloud · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Almost anything by Sigur Ros. Their DVD, Heima, is a must-buy.

u/csexton · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Scrubs Never seems to get old, at least for me.

u/labs · 1 pointr/listentothis

I would suggest everybody buy this record.

u/thoradam · 1 pointr/IAmA

I would agree, check out their tour of Iceland in the documentary Heima, awesome landscape and rural footage coupled with their live performances. I think their sound is very fitting to the country.

u/Nerdlinger · 1 pointr/Fitness

This, natch.

Also, back when I used to run, I would start literally every run with the first three tracks of Spiritualized's Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space.

u/fatangaboo · 1 pointr/AskElectronics

Play some death metal music and connect your headphone output jack to the "noise waveform input" that drives the base of the Darlington pass transistor. Or play This music CD. Red Alert might be a good choice.

u/DryBurningMan · 1 pointr/VinylDeals

Well, thanks for sharing!

Incidentally, the top reviewer on this Amazon page wrote the following about the jet engine sound you mentioned:

> To hear the water trickle, you have to turn the volume up quite a bit and when that jet flys by, the whole room started shaking and the windows rattled and I thought for a moment, a real Jet had just flown over my house! ... They should have put a warning label on it!

Some of these old demo CDs are damned impressive. I might have a go and order this one. :)

Grosse Pointe Blank

All great songs, assembled in one place.

u/JackEsq · 1 pointr/classicalmusic

When I first started listening to Classical music I had very similar tastes to you. There was an album collection that I particularly enjoyed and will help you find more pieces.

Classical Thunder

You don't have to buy the album but the track listing will be very helpful. Notice that the majority of the pieces you mention are already there. One in particular you may like:

Respighi - St. Michael the Archangel

Also, it's Baba Yaga, but Baby Yaga made me chuckle.

u/forgotpassword69 · 1 pointr/startrek

al TOS sounds
Photon torpedoes for messenger "mostly family and immediate attention".
communicator chirp for email.
bosun whistle for Signal "friends usually sending silly stuff".

I ripped them from this many moons ago

u/funderbunk · 1 pointr/AskReddit

"The Digital Domain: A Demonstration", released in 1983 to show off the features of this new fangled CD format. Bought in when it came out, a week before I dropped hundreds on my first CD player, a Sony CDP101.

Beach Blvd. is an awesome compilation of California punk.

Worth it for I Have a Date alone.
