But if one day we meet together while I'm drunk, I promise you to draw a big group sex picture including a lot of forumites. :D

Well not to sound too cliche, but MaSu definitely inspires me. It takes me out of a bad mood if I'm in one, or raises my already jolly disposition. :D *insert santa laugh here*

Rhapsody and Ayreon make me want to play guitar. I can't actually write music yet, but its technically inspiration.
Also, I find that metal (usually viking/Nordic, etc.) helps me make crazy dancing robots.

For some reason, music in another language - primarily japanese - seems to help me work better than that with lyrics I understand. Maybe because I'm not focusing on them, and they become another part of the song, instead of the focus. Anyone else noticed this, or am I just crazy? >.<

yes. understandable words in songs are not good for focusing. songs in spanish or without lyrics are much nicer. UNfortunately, I've ound that i read best with absolute silence, though i'd very much like to be listening to music. When I'm working on stuff though, music is good, especially (for some reason) the Levellers.

Yeah. I have these numerous ideas I'll probably never get to draw, as they'd be straight out of some piece of a certain lyric or song title. Copyright infringements...

I'm a writer, and different music inspires me to write different things.

At the minute, I'm writing a novella in which the protagonist has been severely fucked over by his ex-girlfriend. Joey (the protagonist) is no emo kid however, and his pessimistic yet flippant attitude to his situation is best summed up by the music of Therapy? In particular songs such as:
Straight Life
Don't Expect Roses
Watch You Go
Femtex

I think if it wasn't for Therapy? Joey would be a much more depressing character and nowhere near as fun to read as (I hope) he is.

Metal helps me focus.
In fact, i can't concentrate AT ALL while i'm listening to metal/rock or anything more dominant than ambience, haha.

In my work ?

Yeah of course music affects your work, i'd say it does to all of us.

You're not crazy, I tend to agree. That's why I listen to a lot of dance/techno music with no lyrics at all, mainly to have some background noise but no lyrics to try to keep up with and concentrate on.
Although if you listen to music with lyrics relating to the work you're doing or has a meaning that relates to work you are doing then I also find that it helps a lot.

Its because since you don't understand them your brain isn't in the background trying to analyze and understand the lyrics.
