My Current Media Diet - January 2019

In the vein of the wonderful and prolific Jason Kottke, I’d like to start sharing my current media diet on my blog. I’m not going to keep track of everything I read, watch, or listen to, but I do think a general review of what I’m consuming would be interesting to others and myself in the future.

Spider-Man Into the Spider-verse

Movies

I’m slow on movie intake these days, but we did take the whole family to “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” and I throughly enjoyed it. Very funny, the art direction was amazing, and loved the focus on Miles. I can’t wait for the many sequels. I think Sony as finally done something interesting with their Spider-Man license. (To be fair, 2004’s Spider-Man 2 was pretty good, but that whole trilogy has been hopelessly tainted by the atrocious Spider-Man 3)

TV

Outside of “The Office” reruns, I have watched half of the third season of “Daredevil” on Netflix but stalled out over the holidays and then watched the entirety of “Bodyguard” which was really awesome. Best show I’ve watched in a while.

YouTube

As of this moment, I’m tracking some YouTube creator drama, checking out the world of mechanical keyboards and watching people fix old Hot Wheels.

Books

I’ve stalled a bit on my Audible queue in favor of Podcasts, but I’ve started “Countdown to Zero Day” (interesting but pretty dry) and “The Coming Storm” (same).

Games

I beat Far Cry 4 in early December and moved in to Spider-Man on the PS4. On mobile, I’m playing a lot of Alto’s Odyssey while waiting in line or while watching TV.
