Media Diary (July 2018)

Some things I’ve enjoyed lately, in no particular order, and not necessarily only recent stuff:

Mission: Impossible — Fallout (Movie): Really fun, and I feel like this series is somehow getting better and better over time

Who Is America? (TV): I can’t look away

Ant-Man and The Wasp (Movie): Loved it, especially as an Infinity War chaser

Sharp Objects (TV): Amy Adams rules

Dark Tourist (TV): Just started this, but it’s right up my alley

Wedlock (Podcast): New to this as well, but it has some fascinating conversations and interviews about marriage

City of Gold (TV): What a fascinating life he had

The Vietnam War (TV): Slooooowly making my way through this as it’s a big undertaking, but it’s riveting

Won’t You Be My Neighbor? (Movie): The world needs a lot more people like Fred Rogers

Believer (TV): An interesting exploration of the relationship between the Mormon church and its LGBTQ members (from the lead singer of Imagine Dragons)

A Quiet Place (Movie): Late to the game on this one, but thumbs up

Castle Rock (TV): So far, so good

The 2000s (TV): I like these CNN decade documentaries generally, but this one in particular really resonates

Bobcat Goldthwait’s Misfits & Monsters (TV): What else do you need to know?

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee (TV): I’ve been a fan since the beginning, and remain one through this new season

My Spotify playlist creation pace slowed a bit this month, but I made a few new ones:

July 2018: A New Hope

July 2018: Rogue Nation

July 2018: The Voyage Home

Life Comes At You Fast

As of today, my wife and I have been married for 18 years (!), but we’ve been together for 21. As parents of children who think nothing of conjuring any song ever made out of thin air, or casually downloading multi-GB game patches, I thought I’d walk down memory lane and share a few screenshots from some of the hottest tech properties of 1997 (you’ll find many of today’s favorites missing of course, as they didn’t yet exist).

If you need me, I’ll be slowly rocking back and forth in the fetal position and watching Murder, She Wrote.
