Soderbergh List 2017

Steven Soderbergh catalogued all his pop culture experiences as “Seen, Read 2015” on his blog for the entire year. It was simple and quaint review, an exercise in memory and taste exploration. I figured since it wasn’t too far into the year to give it a try. I want to know the things I experienced for a whole year.

A link to my 2015 list and my 2016 list.

I had to adjust the legend to suit my needs.

All caps, bold: MOVIE
All caps: TV SERIES OR ANIME (NUMBER DENOTES EPISODES WATCHED)
All italics: Book or Comic*
Quotation marks: “Live Performance, Event, Convention”

*For books and comics, the day it appears is the day I finished said book or comic.

As a rule, if I watch more than half or 2/3 of a movie or tv show to the end I count it as watched. I only count books/comics/manga if I read it to the end on that day. I mark cons on the day of. Any day not counted in the list is a day I didn’t do any activity related to the above mentioned.

Proceeds the year that was 2017:

Inktober 2017 Part 2

Since 2011, I have been partaking in Inktober. If you are not familiar with the month long drawing challenged, it is when you draw everyday for the month of October with ink. Originally, there were rules but since the first Inktober they have all been broken. Now, most people add challenges daily such as topics to draw or the alternative Drawlloween in which each day is a Halloween themed topic.

The original rules were draw straight to ink, sketch for 20 mins. Post no matter what you drew. Nowadays, I tend to just do an ink drawing with or without a pencil sketch underneath. It really helps jog the drawing muscle and keeps you active until the end of the year. Even if you’re not an artist, it’s a good idea to get into a daily challenge to just get the creative juices flowing.

Some times I am on top of the drawings, some days I am not. I do my best and figure it out from there.

I fucked up, I got tired and too busy to finish so I didn’t make it to 31. Here is 16-25 of my Inktober. Click through and enjoy.

M2M: June Film Challenge List

I posted about my Goals for 2017 last month and I thought I would outline a more simpler post per month.

I’m calling it the Month to Month post. Here, I will outline what I am doing for each month as a goal.

June’s goal is watching a movie a day for the next 30 days.

The following one line reviews will be as spoiler free as possible. I can’t say for certainty that they will be 100% spoiler free and I will not take responsibility for it.

RULES

  • 50/50 Comedies and Dramas, no documentaries, no shorts. Animated is fine.
  • At least 5 foreign language films.
  • Minimum of 3 should be watched in theatres.
  • At least 5 films made by Canadian production companies/creators.
  • At least 5 films by a female director.
  • No rewatching movies that you’ve already seen.

Ho boy…
