Monaco relies on the people you're playing it with, or even having people to play with. Not everyone will get a lucky break there.

Top 4 in order

"Innocence Is Kinky" by Jenny Hval - No one is writing music anything like Hval's.
"DRKLNG" by Zebra Katz - A mixtape that puts all that unreal Caligulan luridness back into club music.
"The Terror" by Flaming Lips - The Flaming Lips losing hope sounds like how I felt when I left religion, and it resembles all of the intense fear and awe from that part of my life.
"Silence Yourself" by Savages - Exposing how weak dudes have let rock music become and working to reshape the relevance it has in the modern world. Also, loud as hell.

I'm a musician. I've released two albums and one demo this year, all written and performed entirely by myself.

To offer the counterpoint to all of the more positive and neutral examples given of the creative spark, it's just some other secretion for me. It's about as romantic as pus and coagulating blood. All of the other alternatives of getting this sort of thing out of my system are quite harmful, to myself and others. I write and record so those thoughts and feelings don't have a chance to hurt. However, by containing all of that part of me in this one activity I'm able to function in a healthy and empathetic way.

I guess the shorter answer is something like "to keep my even strain."

Bummer that I can't skip ahead and that changing video quality causes the file to restart, but I couldn't change the video quality mid-video at all before, so that's a step up. Also, haven't had any issues with buffering yet, so that's a marked improvement. So it's fine, because great to me implies being wowed and my reaction was more "oh, okay, neat."
