Looking for songs to listen to while carefully not waiting for the phone to ring. Something that will help regain some of the chill that should already be there. Not looking for pure instrumentals; something that is just subtly supposed to be calm. Nothing romantic, but nothing break-up-themed either. Ideally something that acknowledges and captures this nervous energy and lets it dissipate. [more inside]
I want to do some computer learning/practicing/programming. I'd prefer to do so away from the distractions of home. I'd like some place with good views, minimal distractions, all in the San Diego area. A Zen garden with WIFI would be the ideal place. Starbucks is too busy, and the local library is also. Any suggestions?

Snog's "The Human Germ" has been sampled in another song that I know is in my library. Unfortunately, I can't figure out which one it is, and it's killing me. I believe a Morcheeba song might sample "The Human Germ," but, again, I've not been able to narrow down which song it is, if any. Please. Help.

My sixteen year old brother is trying to turn his bedroom into the ultimate chill room. He has a laser stars projector, multiple lava lamps, one of these Luminglass lights, and a fog machine that really works well with the laser stars projector. What other trippy, spacy, unusual, outlandish, and freaky decor (lights, art, etc.) is necessary for the ultimate chill room?
