The Silence is Deafening


I don't know about anyone else but I can't create without some sort of sound in the room. Rather it's music, TV or a movie I need something to watch or listen to while working.
I have been this way since I was a kid. I could never do homework in a quiet room. It keeps my mind busy but focused which probably sounds weird when I say it. Yet, it make sense to me.
Sometimes the music of the show that I am watching reflects what I am working on and sometimes not at all but rather reflects my mood. Lately, I have been creating new things while watching season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer on dvd. It's been really fun and making the time move by at a much more enjoyable pace. I think i would go bonkers if I didn't have that distraction right now.
What do you find inspiring to create to? What do you like to use as a distraction while creating your art to make the more monotonous tasks go by quicker? Feel free to share because I am always look for new ideas.

oh, i love to listen to pandora when i do homework. i'm a lot like you.
i need my mind active, so that i can focus.

when i'm making my crafty-bits, i tend to watch tv shows on hulu.
doesn't matter what, or how BAD the show is. (if it's terrible, i mystie the show while i watch.)

I absolutely have to listen to music while I'm creating. Can't watch TV, because I need to focus on my illustration... but music is completely necessary!

audio books. I can get completely absorbed in the story without having to take my eyes off of what I'm doing. I'm totally hooked on them.
