    Default 2015 Media Log

    The idea of this thread is to post what things you are reading/playing/watching for each month of 2015. Ideally you should have one post and come back and edit it each month. Of course, you can post more if you want to comment on what other people are doing. You can also give ratings to the various media.

    For this year, let's also set goals for the year as to how much we will consume. Particularly with books, I think it is a good to set a reading goal for yourself since reading enriches the mind and all that jazz.

    My Goals
    Books to read: 15 (15/15) GOAL REACHED!
    Games to complete: 15 (16/15) GOAL REACHED!
    Movies to watch: 15 (14/15)

    15 for '15!

    At the end of the year we'll have something to look back on and see what we did and if we met our goals!

    My Ratings

    May

    Books

    I've meant to do this for the last two years but only remember it halfway through the year and then think "what's the point".

    I have been so slack on catching up on my backlog of film, and I've been equally as terrible of not seeing theater features at the actual cinema, which I think is a key part of the viewing experience for some big-budget films. Last year I made a goal to watch more film starting from the early 1910's in order to study the progression of the art throughout the decades and I didn't keep up with it, so I'm super stoked to try again.

    I am! Series, though, not single issues.

    My goal was 30 last year and I was somewhat close. 22 books with single-issue comics not included, as well as a ~five month-ish break in reading. I think I can do it.

    I read 67 books last year, but I'm in school now so that's not a reasonable goal this time around.

    I have yet to determine my goal - 300 short stories? 35 books?

    I'M GONNA DO IT THIS YEAR. I REALLY AM because one of my resolutions for 2015 is following through on more things I want to do and I like and I care about and YEAH.

    My reading goal for the year is 24 new books. Any re-reads don't count towards the goal, if I should do a re-read. I also have a goal of getting the kids one new (to them) book each month a piece.

    I actually do have a movie/film goal. For a year or more I've been talking with a few friends about doing a movie night once a month where we pick a theme and then individually get movies based on that theme. Just gotta organize it! I want to do a different theme each month and actually spend time with my friends while doing something we all enjoy. And I think we might even rent a projector and do garage viewing this summer!

    January

    Books
    * The World Made Straight by Ron Rash - In Progress
    * Wild by Cheryl Strayed - soon to start. Both of these books were recommended by co-workers.

    Movies
    *Guardians of the Galaxy
    *The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies

    Television (I watch a lot of syndicated tv and Netflix)
    *Good Eats
    *Cutthroat Kitchen
    *Law and Order: SVU



    Signature by rubah. I think.

    I tried this last year and got a fair ways in. The realization that I could have missed something and had an "incomplete" list bugged me to the point where I dropped it.

    So this year I'll just say with 100% certainty that I'm going to watch the new season of The Walking Dead and there's my list.

    At this point, one per day seems reasonable given my constraints; I certainly cannot replicate my volume of reading from last year. These Alexie stories are really short - most are two or three pages, some are twenty to thirty. It seems like the standard short story is about ten to fifteen pages.
