Since there’s an incredible variety of media available to us these days it’s easy to miss great stuff. And since there’s also an incredible variety of people on the internet it’s a given that we’ll all have different experiences.
So what media are you consuming? Would you recommend it? How did you discover it? Anything else we should all be aware of???
Kicking things off…
I’m currently watching the final season of The Shield. I loved The Wire and was hunting for another cop drama that would be as good, and The Shield seemed like a good option. To start with it seemed very different and I was unsure that I’d like it, but after a bit of adjustment following the adventures of a team of semi-corrupt cops and their problems as things invariably go pear shaped has become very addictive.
I’m reading Blood, Sweat and Pixels by Jason Schreier. It documents the creation process, warts and all, of several very well known games. I’m about halfway through and the Stardew Valley chapter and Diablo 3 chapter have been very interesting. (I actually ended up starting this after reading the Mass Effect books by Drew Karpyshyn, which I thought would be rubbish but were actually pretty good accompaniments to the first three games…in a pulpy kind of way).
I’m listening to…well, I recently watched the Black Metal documentary Dying of the Light, so I’m currently enjoying some old classics. Currently going through the Dark Throne discography.
