Consumed September 2016 – 30. September, 2016

September, you sucked giant donkey d**ks.

Yet somehow I was able to consume a metric ton of entertainment (probably because my computer died). This is what I shoved into my media gullet.

Television
Rick & Morty – Season two was pretty good but couldn’t compare to season one. It’s near impossible to top the scenes that used DMX and Mazzy Star. Those moments made that season and won me over.

Casual – The further one gets from the pilot, the better the show gets… except for that season one closer. They ran over a huge, emotional decision and I’m not sure if I’ll jump back in for season two.

Doctor Who – [SPOILER WARNING] – I felt nothing when Clara died. Bring back Rose.

Fleabag – DEARSWEETJESUSYOUMUSTSTARTWATCHINGTHISSHOWNOW!!!

The IT Crowd – Caught the final episode. It was a nice bookend but I would have been happy without it.

Blindspot
Gotham – So I got to that part where the Original Poison Ivy jumps into the sewer and Busty, F**kable Poison Ivy emerges. I turned off the TV. Not sure I can go back to the series. Maybe if they squeeze her into a Power Girl suit.

Lucifer РLooking forward to more fun with these devils.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine – If they don’t get Jake and the Captain back to Brooklyn, I fear they have jumped the shark.

Flaked – Curious about white privilege? Catch some of this show.

The Jim Gaffigan Show – Lord help me but I’d go back to being Catholic for Ashley Williams’ smile.

Continuum – Am I going to finish the series because I once had a massive crush on Rachel Nichols?

Son of Zorn – Two episodes in and it’s fun. Favorite bit is each episode’s title card.

The Good Place – Heaven help me but I lurv Kristen Bell.

Bob’s Burgers

Justified – Approaching the end of season two and lordy this show is awesome.

Designated Survivor – Cool concept but I don’t know if I’ll stick around for the whole season.

Movies
The Hateful Eight – So it’s a Western Reservoir Dogs? Okay, not bad.

hateful_eight

Creed – Exactly what I expected, exactly what I wanted. Bravo.

creed_echo-rocky

Amy – Did she always have a camera on her? Is this how it’s going to be for everyone going forward?

Hell or High Water – Maybe the best American film (about America) of the year.

hell-or-high-water

La La Land – Yeah, I saw it. I can’t tell you about it but I saw it.

lala-land

Books
Reamde by Neal Stephenson – I now understand why someone told me this was “like 14 Die Hards” rolled into one book. Holy s**t, this was AWESOME!

Reamde

Commonwealth by Ann Patchett – Maybe the best book I’ve read this year (but probably my second favorite).

commonwealth_ann-patchett

NOS4A2 by Joe Hill – If you loved Locke & Key (and I did), then you’ll love this book.

nos4a2_joe-hill

Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff – savoring every word.

Pilots
Midnight, Texas – Still reading my way through the pilot script.

Comics
Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Five
DC Comic’s Bombshells

Video Games
Doom – My mission: to brutally murder all monsters. Where do I sign up?

Here’s hoping October sucks less.

Over and out.

Consumed October 2015 – 31. October, 2015

Hello once again from the Austin Film Festival. Despite all my festival goings, it is the last day of the month so that means it’s time to reflect on all that I’ve consumed over the past 31 days. Let’s go!

Television
Gotham
Turn – Enjoyable, not perfect, but damn if Captain Simcoe isn’t an awesome villain.

simcoe-yell

Blindspot
The Player – I really enjoy this action show so I’m bummed that their order just got cut.

The Player - Season Pilot

Portlandia
Seinfeld
The Jim Gaffigan Show – Really fun but now I have a crazy crush on Ashley Williams.

Ashley-Williams

The Awesomes
Minority Report
iZombie
Bob’s Burgers
Sleep Hollow – I’m not a fan of the new co-stars but it feels like the show is getting back on track.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine
The Last Man on Earth – Goddamn I wish I had created this show.

Last-Man-On-Earth_Phil-Balls

Arrow
The Flash
Black Mirror – Have only seen the first episode. Yeah, THAT episode.

Black-Mirror_Saliva

Drunk History
Narcos

Movie
The Martian – Really good. A solid adventure flick.

The-Martian_Sitting

Music
Every Open Eye by CHVRCHES – This sophomore album is a goddamn winner.

1989 by Ryan Adams – Don’t judge!

Books
Gold Fame Citrus by Claire Vaye Watkins – Want one good reason to hate this book? A character says the title of the book as a line of dialog not once, not twice but three f**king times! Ugh. Every page made me wish I was buried in a better piece of apocalypse fiction, like Fallout 4.

Comics
Tomb Raider – A great comic, and proof that sometimes reboots are the right thing to do.

Tomb-Raider_i05_p03

The Bunker
Batman: Arkham Knight
Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Four
DC Comics: Bombshells
The Life After – Not quite the suicide comic I was looking for… but I can’t stop reading.

The-Life-After_i02_p02

Lost at Sea
Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman
Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life – I knew these comics were good but I had no idea I’d fall head over heels for them. They’re the absolute perfect blend of indie rock, young adult and tournament fighting.

Scott-Pilgrim_Precious_Little_Life

Zero
Lazarus
Immortal Weapons
Dungeons & Dragons: The Legend of Baldur’s Gate
G.I. Joe: Cobra – I know what you’re thinking but trust me on this one. The stories centered around second and third tier characters are among the best action/espionage comics you’ll read.

GI-Joe-Cobra_i13_p03

Scott Pilgrim vs the World
G.I. Joe Cobra Special

Games
Star Wars Battlefront (beta) – This is the game you want to play. The beta was awesome and this commercial gets me every damn time.

Want more ? How about awesome aerial combat where you get to pilot… just take a look.

Want more than that? How about a battle on Hoth.

And that’s a wrap. Happy Halloween!

(miss ya Wes)
