    I wasn't sure how to answer this at first.

    Then I realised the context of the creation, books, movies, paintings, statues, poems...need not matter. Probably a cop out answer to some. But to me it's those...little beauties that are aflame for just one moment, one single moment of sincerity and then it blows out like a candle to the wind.

    This has more to do with an individual's reaction to such stimulus than the stimulus itself usually. You can try to hold onto that brilliant moment of course, but in truth it can never really be held again, it's there and gone, even though the original object that excited such a reaction is viewed over and over again.

    Because it was never the object to begin with it, it was the person's imagination, the singular most perfect gift any creature of nature could receive.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.
    - A.A. Milne.

    I'd add music to the list. I like music al ot. For me, it can alter my mood, express things in a way that it's difficult to do in just words.

    Visual art can do that too, but music seems to have more of an impact on me. I do like good art though.

    Also yes to books. Fuel for the mind and imagination.

    I prefer books and music as a consumer, with movies in third place. Books leave more to the imagination than movies, and since they do not occur in time, I can control the pacing, rereading passages as often as I like, or stopping to do something else. As a creator, I like to make music because it is enjoyable and satisfying on many levels. I feel it allows me to use aspects of myself that I don't get to use otherwise. This is part of the enjoyment of listening as well. I enjoy creating practical items, like clothing and things for my house. Here it is a combination of meeting a real need in a way that is both effective and creative, functional and aesthetically pleasing. I also enjoy creating in areas that are not artistic, but that sounds like another topic.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Anime/manga. I didn't intentionally set out to like Japanese comics & cartoons but it just kind of ended up that way.

    Err, music first, if that counts, though.
