What work of art (film, book, record, whatever) changed your life?
Submitted by bodhibound.

There are so many, and at different points in my life, so I’ll just run down a few the favorites.

Film
1. Star Wars
2. Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure/Weird Science (I wish it were not so, but it is.)

Book
1. Dragonlance Chronicles
2. The Sandman

Records
1. Yello “One Second”  
    It was a record that blew my mind. Prior to this album I don’t think I fully understood the
mind boggling possibilities of  what one musician could do with electronics, synth sampling and
multi-track sequencing.

2. Nine Inch Nails “The Downward Spiral”
 It brought together all of my favorite genres in one album. Classical structures, conceptuality, story, electronics, computers, guitars, death, destruction and despair. Its all in there.
