Default Inspiration from odd places (stay drunk on drumming)

Has your drumming ever been inspired by something non-musical, or not related to music?
I've been reading "Zen in the Art of Writing" by Ray Bradbury. It's a fantastic book about forgetting about the rules or what anybody thinks, and just expressing yourself. Here is a passage. Other than my writing, it allowed me to have more fun and be more creative in my next jam session.

"Every morning I jump out of bed and step on a land mine. The land mine is me. After the explosion, I spend the rest of the day putting the pieces back together. Now, it's your turn. Jump!"

another: "You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you" (or stay drunk on drumming so repetition cannot destroy you).

How about non-drumming books, movies, artists or people that did the same for you?
