The best drugs are musical

According
To the below article the best drugs are the ones I internally create myself by giving myself an EARgasm :)

As i have said Before and I’ll say it again Music really is the drug inside us

ARTICLE
When we are moved by music our brains behave as if reacting to tasty food, psychoactive drugs or money, research shows.
The pleasure experience is driven by the ‘reward’ chemical dopamine, which has been linked to addiction.
It produces physical effects known as ‘chills’ that cause changes in electrical skin conductance, heart rate, breathing and temperature.
Valorie Salimoor, from McGill University in Montreal, Canada, tested volunteers who were given MRI brain scans while listening to music. During ‘peak emotional arousal’ regions of the brain linked to pleasure and reward released dopamine – the ‘feel good’ neurotransmitter that helps nerve cells send signals to each other.
At the same time, the effect of the music was reflected in body ‘chills’.
Dopamine release was greatest when listeners had a strong emotional response to music, revealed the research published in the journal Nature Neuroscience.
‘If music-induced emotional states can lead to dopamine release, as our findings indicate, it may begin to explain why musical experiences are so valued,’ the researchers added.

Sennheiser Iphone headphones

My old headphones were literally doing my head in; 1) the
last ‘temporary’ set were so shit everytime I moved my head they
crackled 2) if too much bass was playing the headphones would
distort and muffle the sound like my head was squashed between a
fat lady’s thighs 3) if i played the music too loud the headphones
would distort like rubbing my ears against a cheese grater. Enter
the sennheiser MM70i http://www.sennheiser.co.uk/uk/home_en.nsf/root/private_headsets_mobile_music_504161
These headphones were £70. But god are they sexy. Full volume on
iPhone, no worries, no distortion and crystal clear sound! Inline
stop/play buttons and volume control and a frequency response of
20hz up To 22000Khz. If u need a new set of headphones – these
rock! Musically yours James
