Okay, so it’s no secret to anyone who reads my personal LJ that I draw a ton of inspiration from music. I have to have it playing while I’m writing or I just can’t concentrate. It makes it really hard to write when I’m away from home, though, so I always make sure to take my bulging CD binder with me.
Anyway, I’m equally inspired by movies with good music and music videos (nearly the same thing, right?). When I get stuck on my novels, I frequently imagine them as movies and work out what the scenes and pacing would look like on that front. And ever since I was a tiny maggot, I’ve loved music videos with great music and vaguely speculative fiction plots. Great training for writing short stories! So I’m going to share (hopefully, if html doesn’t hate me today) a few of my favorite vaguely genre music videos and pretty, pretty, pretty please, if you have any other videos that you love that pair great music with cool speculative videos, post them in the comments!)
