I just like background noise. My TV is located in the living room behind me so I like to turn that on but I can't actually watch anything, lol.

Music. Music is an auditory experience, first and foremost, and "editing" would be the process by which I tried to attach visuals to that experience. Music creates emotions and ideas which are totally unique in my head, and that is what I enjoy most about making AMVs: taking what's in my head and trying to duplicate and share that with others. Consequently, it's extremely easy for me to hear a song that conjures really strong ideas and in the next nanosecond be thinking "How can I make an AMV out of this? What anime can I use?" I guess you also could argue that, in most cases, the music in AMVs remains the most true to the source material. The anime we bend and twist to all sorts of purposes and shovel on all kinds of effects, but the music is usually left in its original state.

I haven't ever really watched an anime series and then thought "How can I make an AMV out of this? What song can I use?" Anime doesn't inspire the same kneejerk reaction to think about editing, perhaps because it's too visual. It's hard for me to take someone else's "editing" and ideas, process it and come up with a new idea that will create new visuals or attempt to capture the essence of the original. Kind of feels like when I need to do math, my brain just kind of goes "derp." Wipe the slate clean with music, though, switch to the other side of my brain, and I have no problems whatsoever. :D

While I have several anime that I'd like to make videos for, without a song for them I can't even start think of editing.

I feel like both of anime and music kind of work together for me. If they run across each other and suddenly just match, my head explodes, and I want to start editing. :D Although, usually I don't get the idea explosion until I listen to the music (after having watched the anime), so I guess music plays the bigger part.

When I've already chosen a concept, which takes the longest time ever >.>, I visualize most of the editing process by sitting in the car or taking a shower... Or at 5 in the morning while I'm asleep, I get this "EDIT-OR-DIE" feeling, and somehow that feeling wakes me up and I have to get started. :roll:

Whenever I hear a song that isn't foreign, I always say to myself, "Hmmm, what anime would go good with this?" Then I star visioning scenes from the show as I hear the lyrics.

Listening to music and rewatching anime. Not that I intend to listen and rewatch for editing purposes, but sometimes an anime or song would pop up in my head when listening to music or rewatching a series. I find it funny, though, that when I do listen to music or rewatch a series for editing purposes, it more often than not shatters the idea I'd get otherwise. I suppose that's for a whole another thread, though.

For me, it'd be music that makes me think of it most. Watching anime is second.

Well music is the main deal for me, unless the anime I am watching hits me like "You better fucking edit this source right now" or something, but mainly music that gets me going.
