    Default Comfort media

    Is there a movie/book/show or whatever else that you watch not because "it's been a while" or even because "it's an old favorite", but because it reminds you of a time in your life or a person you knew and it's comfortable to be there?

    There's a phrase like "I visit places we used to go together, not because there's anything for me there now, but because it's the closest I'll ever be to spending time with you again".

    Is there media that brings that out of you?

    Duck Tales or the old Spiderman and X-Men cartoons. What a time to be a kid!

    I'm one of those weirdos that watches Red Letter Media's Best of the Worst episodes on a nightly basis before bed because I always laugh and usually need it.

    I find myself watching a lot of older anime just to appreciate the artistry involved. They're often really nicely done.

    Other than that, I have my nerdy sci-fi shows like Star Trek and Star Gate that I often rewatch.

    there's a couple older songs and albums that reminds me of an old girlfriend. i dont listen to them for the express reason of being reminded of our relationship, though. on the whole i don't indulge in media for that kind of comfort (aside from the whole world being a hellpit and therefore all media is comfort media element)
    Primary factor of concern: legal. As for older people, they just have to be happy, spritely, and have a pretty tight physique. Younger can always tone up and lose weight, but older people have to constantly work at it. I can't love someone who I have to physically take care of on the daily. Resentment is a strong emotion that runs deep in my family.

    My comfort book is probably Fellowship of the Ring. My comfort shows are Sonic SatAM, Super Mario Bros Super Show, and Avatar: The Last Airbender. My comfort movies are Balto, Flight of Dragons, and the animated Hobbit movie.

    Watching just about any anime that was featured on adult swim in the 00s brings me to that time of teen angst when I felt ways about things, and I enjoy re-watching them for that reason.

    The contemplative commercials were as memorable to me as any of the shows.

    Lo-fi before lo-fi was cool.

    oooohhhh i forgot about those. yeah those were cool. I also have a lot of the music they would play during the bumps. Idk if its still a thing, but you could download it for free off the adult swim website. My favorite was the Ghostly Swim album. That led me to a lot of cool things like Tycho, Com Truise, and a bunch of free demos from the Ghostly Records website that bop.
