What Did I Watch in Feb ’18?

Image result for chloe kim winter olympics 2018Here’s a simple exercise: display the media I consumed every month.

With that in mind, I’ll tell ya upfront that I watched an absolute shitload of the Winter Olympics. Apparently I really like watching people play Curling. Who woulda thunk it? Seriously, though, the highlight of the games came very early on when Chloe Kim tore the half-pipe up and then proceeded to open her post-win interview with the words “SOMEONE JUST GAVE ME SOME ICE CREAM SO I’M DOWN WITH THAT.”

This girl is majestic and I hope she never changes.

Otherwise, it was an odd month. Netflix pumped out two movies that were both tremendous disappointments (I liked one, hated the other but by all accounts both should have been great) which I might write about after Annihilation is released in March and I saw Black Panther which I really liked but recognise I’m not the core audience for. And that’s way cool. There should probably be a lot less movies tailored solely to the 18-35 year old straight white middle class male market if not only to diversify the breadth of art as well as provide direly needed representation on screen.

Oh and I spent a lot of time learning Japanese. Expect that to continue.

Without further ado:
