Media Diary (January 2020)

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

Parasite (Movie): Fantastic

The Outsider (TV): Super creepy, and I’m anxious to see where it goes

WeCrashed: The Rise and Fall of WeWork (Podcast): Surreal to listen to as I walk into WeWork in the morning

The Lighthouse (Movie): Just as balls-out insane as I needed it to be

Star Trek: Picard (TV): So far, so good, and respect for naming his dog “Number One”

Chasing Cosby (Podcast): Man, what a disgusting creep

The Squid and The Whale (Movie): Had never seen this, and loved it

Doctor Who (TV): This season is really kicking it up a notch

The Topical (Podcast): Great new satirical news podcast from The Onion

Nightcrawler (Movie): Didn’t have any expectations, and was pretty riveted

Curb Your Enthusiasm (TV): All hail King David

The A24 Podcast (Uh, Podcast): I’m all about these conversations between filmmakers

Frances Ha (Movie): Part of my mini-Noah Baumbach fest (pretty good)

Dracula (TV): Super over-the-top in a good way

Eyes Wide Shut (Movie): Hadn’t watched it in years, still amazing #fidelio

Sex, Explained (TV): Interesting brief overviews across a number of reproductive topics

What Did Jack Do? (Short Movie): David Lynch is an American treasure

Shrill (TV): Enjoyed the first season, just starting the second

Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez (TV): Such a sad story

I also dabbled in a few episodes of The Circle (entertainingly terrible) and The Goop Lab (fewer things shoved up vaginas than I expected 🤷)
