Need to Clear Your Head? Check Out the Quiet Place Project

Posted By on Fri, Mar 22, 2013 at 4:29 PM

No matter how you spin it, staring at a computer for most of your day can be pretty rough. Sometimes, you just need to clear your head, particularly if you've been going through some hard times — say, if your NCAA bracket got busted because who the bloody hell actually expected Harvard, of all teams, to make past New Mexico?!

If you need to sit back, relax, and think a spell, take a look at the Thoughts Room, from the Quiet Place Project, one of a few different "quiet places" that Amitay Tweeto designed to give people a place to breathe on the internet:

one day, i woke up and told myself, "it can't go on like this."
there was too much noise coming from all the social media, the loud city, work, home, etc.
so i created the quiet place, just for me and my friends. i published the link to my 400 friends on facebook and twitter and then...

...it exploded.

But as cool as the Quiet Place is, the Thought Room is where it's at — it's the place for free association, typing out stress, and watching as your words fall away into space. Literally.

WHY NO I DONT HAVE ANYTHING I NEED TO TALK ABOUT

Seriously, it's kinda cool. And layering the soothing background music of the Thoughts Room with Rainy Mood (which we covered on the Range two years ago, strangely enough) is almost enough to help you forget about all the money you lost when you were expecting New F—king Mexico to Cinderella their way through the tournament.

Ahh, peace.
