I often eat..and music playing is a must. '70 & '80's rock, preferably.
Games don't make people violent, lag does.

I have Firefox, Thunderbird and Skype running or open while playing. When I die I will look at a new email or something in Firefox. :P

IRC in the background, and music playing (from my Zen into my line-in, so it doesn't use any resources and I can adjust it without alt-tabbing out).

i listen to all sorts of stuff (including all of the aforementioned), because my music taste isn't as narrow minded as you guys. i do like the sound of Muse at the moment.

i wasn't referring to you directly, i am not starting a flame war. I was just refferring to the fact that it's ammazing how many people will simply dimiss music because it's not by thier favourite artist.
