This is it! The end of the first year of Digibro’s Media Journal, and the effective end of the current format of the series. Above is a brief podcast with my thoughts on the yearlong project, and below is the final ordered list of all media that I took in this year.
The June stuff is in bold. Note that a great number of the ratings have been changed since the items were originally listed.
I’ve either hit an all-time low of media consumption, or I seriously need to change my definition of what counts as media. I spent a stupidly huge amount of this month watching MLP videos, which is why I really need to make that it’s own thing as I’ve been promising—it’s just hard to keep track of all of it. In the meantime, I didn’t touch any anime, game controllers, or comics/books this month, so I’m pretty dead to the world. It’s mostly gonna be music, which I’m absurdly current on thanks to Anthony Fantano. At least it’s a month of almost completely positive reactions!
SPOILERS FOR ALL THE POTTER MOVIES. In this cast, my brother Victor and I discuss the Harry Potter movies, after having just finished them.
At one point, we talk about some funny pictures, and I tell you to click a link in the description. This is that link: http://memj0123.tumblr.com/post/51168489654/h-u-m-o-u-r-leahtardis
(Warning: most of this was written while drunk.) January got off to an unparalleled start in terms of media—I was handing three-plus scores out the wazoo. This more or less came to an abrupt stop when I started dedicating every waking hour to pony videos (not necessarily on purpose, it just sorta overtook my brain). I keep feeling like I’ve left something off the list, because it felt like I took in more media at the end of the month than I have listed, but it’s likely that I was just so busy with ponies and working on my upcoming Top 100 songs list and watching Game Grumps and shit that I just didn’t see that much new stuff.
Pretty much all about comics this time, with a couple’a Tadanobu Asano flicks at the end.
