Well, last night I was bored, so I experimented with new software, and made my first totally electronic piece... I'm going to see what happens if I use my own samples from world instruments next time, instead of the classic electronic ones that came with the thing. This is fun!

Oh, and I made two skins for winamp, not that I actually use winamp, but I was bored. :)

You've been busy, right? See there.

I haven't been bored in 30 years. I agree with Mmario -- I feel sort of wistful sometimes, wishing I could remember what it feels like to be bored. There's a difference between loafing and boredom, however, and I'm a strong proponent of taking a day or two for some intensive loafing now and then. Loafing is best (in warm weather) if you have a large porch. Wintertime loafing is best accomplished in front of a fire ...

When I get bored I play a guitar.

When I get bored with playing that guitar I play another guitar.

When I get bored with all the guitars I own I go out and buy a new guitar.

When I go out and buy a new guitar the wife gets upset because she thinks I already have too many guitars and we have a big row.

It is impossible to be bored while having a big row.

Hell's bells - not yet two decades of tedium under your belt and you're bored?!
The poety's a good palliative - but what you really need is passion (and I don't necessarily mean the sweaty sort - though that's a good way to purge boredom).
What makes you angry? What makes you think: "No way - that's unjust, unfair and unreasonable"?
Channel that anger and angst into passion - put it into your poetry or go out there and do something about it. People who want to make a difference may be a pain in the arse to others, but they tend not to get bored.
With me it's been politics, music and being an incurable romantic that has kept boredom at bay for more than four decades now (and I've probably made myself a roight royal pain in the arse to many with all three).
I'm not saying you won't get into hot water or sometimes say to yourself: "Sodding hell, why am I doing this?", but you won't be bored. Having kids relieves boredom, too (in inverse proportion to increasing angst) - but I wouldn't recommend that just yet!

Anyway, I should say that I am very impressed with your masterful construction of boredom. Here are hundreds of posts offering all these solutions and you have managed to slip them all, except the cat jokes!! Good work -- one of the most persuasive presentations of boredom I have ever seen.

Maybe you should try something life threatening!!

Time to learn something...a new chord, a new instrument, a new language. I've been blessed with the knowledge of how truly fleeting this life experience is, and consequently don't have time for boredom. Boredom is a variation on a self-pity wallow.

Boredom is just the desire for variety. Just be aware of what is happening NOW and stop wanting something different. It will come along anyway. Do anything at all but do it wholeheartedly and boredom will cease immediately. Course, you might enjoy being bored in which case, fine. It can be interesting observing boredom too.

Just to say that I've found another way to combat boredom. Write really cheesy poems about it! Quite like this one actually!

Boredom

Boredom is a three hour long maths lesson It's waiting for a bus when it just isn't coming It's dealing with a person who just won't listen It's working at a computer that's persistantly humming

Boredom is a person who's completely self centred It's listening to a lecture on a subject that you hate It's watching a raffle being drawn that you've not entered It's going to a meeting but you know that you'll be late

Boredom is a soap opera that's always on when you get home It's a silent conversation with the person that you love It's listening to a life story of one you've never known It's staring out of the window at the grey sky up above

Boredom is watching the news each and every night It's working with a person who just has to be the best It's watching to rough strangers getting in a fight It's lying in your bed when you honestly can't rest!

How do you combat boredom? I really do not know For me to combat boredom I stare out at the snow.

The easiest way to avoid boredom is to become a schizophrenic like us. We always have someone to talk to and go for walks with. He likes cola and he likes orange drink so we never drink the last one. This saves many an argument.
Best of all, there's someone to agree with us when Skeptic starts HIS bushwah.
And if all else fails, we get out our candles and our ball of string and go exploring the caverns of our mind.

I cannot help as I have never suffered from the condition except in the company of bores when my solution is to depart in haste. Otherwise there are not enough hours in the day. Try visiting a Hospice for terminally-ill children. It might put your churlish ingratitude into perspective. Boredom comes from within and life, my friend, is all too short to waste on a condition arising from spiritual, intellectual and cultural laziness.

Chill, 'Cat. Boredom is a self-imposed confession. Beat the rap, dude, check your attitude and get over the stall of your own imagination and responsibility. Given that you are a person of infinite talent, potential and creativity, the first step is to notice who it is that is creating the condition. Then you can do something about it.

If this seems insurmountable, get out and walk backwards around the block. You'll be amazed how much more possible things seems when you get back.

Nun-spitting:

When performed on the streets of Manchester ~30 years ago was done thusly.

Stand around on the street until a pair of nuns appear.
As they approach you walk between them.

If you haven't got the nerve for this work up to it by practising on pairs of policemen, (they're easier to split).

The good news is that your brave enough to admit that you are bored!

I think most divorces, job changes, geographical moves, bathroom remodels, affairs and corvette purchases are merely symptoms of boredom denied.

I'll go along with Rick...corny, but whenever I am doing for someone else, it works. I keep the HD out at all times, and can play whenever there is a five minute interval, in addition to practice time. Or that stray half hour that you made an example of, is a perfect time for meditation. Trust me, boredom is something you definitely outgrow. It will be gone from your life very shortly.

Boredom? Ooooh...that's a toughie. It's horrible being bored. I think it's a symptom of having lost the sense of what your life is really about. A lot of boredom is a form of depression, usually.

Many people try to cure it through short term distraction, and many methods of doing that have been suggested above, but they're all just a quick fix, I think.

There's masturbation, too, but it only gets you just so far...

And then, maybe you're bored again. Plus tired out in certain parts...

Yeeesh! Life's a drag sometimes, ain't it?

To find an urgent sense of real purpose would totally clear up boredom.

This may be one big reason why all of Europe went to war in 1914, and massacred each other for 5 years. My grandmother was living in Vienna at the time, and she said there was absolute celebration in the streets when the war was declared. People were deliriously happy about it, throwing flowers from the balconies on the marching soldiers in the streets, heading off to glory.

That's the "precipitating a crisis" cure to boredom.

Three years later they were surviving on rats and potatoe peelings, the economy was in a shambles, and their sons were missing or dead.

Yup, boredom is a tough one.

Here's an idea. Try making someone else feel good...that can have surprising results sometimes. It doesn't have to be anything big.
