What Did I Watch in Jan ’18?

CollateralHere’s a simple exercise: display the media I consumed every month.

Bear in mind, this won’t be *super* extensive. If I posted every song or youtube clip I came across, we’d be here forever and although I’m likely to read a veritable fuck-tonne of poems over the next few months due to a University course, I don’t know that they really qualify.

In short, this is focused on Films, TV, Video Games and books. Maybe the occasional album if I listen to anything current.

Without further ado:

05/01-Collateral, 2004 (still amazing/seen previously)

07/01-Annihilation/Jeff VanderMeer, 2014 (N) (dark)
21/01-A Horse Walks Into A Bar/David Grossman, 2014/16 (T)(N) (an uncompromising collision of the blisteringly funny and relentlessly sad)
28/01-The White Book/Han Kang, 2017 (T)(N) (unbearably sad, Han Kang is easily my favourite author writing today)

Tv-watched throughout the month
Star Trek Discovery S1 pt2 (still good)
Black Mirror S4 (strongest season, weakest individual episodes)

Black Lightning, S1 (surprisingly good)
Last Week Tonight, random clips (<3 JohnnyO)
My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, S1 (always got time for Barack)

Assassin’s Creed Origins, 2017 (still not feeling it. Need another 100 hours or so)
