Media diary

Here’s a record of everything I read, watch, and listen to. I got the idea from Steven Soderbergh, who’s been doing it for who knows how long. He’s much more organized and meticulous than I am. I don’t always keep track of the music I listen to, for example. Music usually only appears if I listen to an entire album straight through. When I read a short story solum ipsum, I usually put the title in “quotation marks.” TV is ALL CAPS. If you want to know what I think about any of these things, search the blog for the title or author.
