Media 2018

I was inspired by a number of folks (like Steven Soderbergh and Barack Obama) who share year-end lists, so I tried (once again) to record all my media consumption in 2018. I did a pretty good job. I’m sure I missed a few. I know for sure that many dates are incorrect, as I retroactively added a lot of entries. But all in all, the Movies, TV, and Books are fairly accurate.

I’m not ranking anything. My personal rating system appears that everything is basically a 7 out of 10. So there’s that.

Music I’m pulling from Spotify – which I only use about 1/3 of the time – so consider it incomplete.

I didn’t track any podcasts (until Downcast adds a capture setting).


Books 16

Movies 35

TV Shows 28

TV Episodes 297

Music Minutes 32,681*

*Spotify only


Books and movies are generally in order by the date I read or watched them. The TV shows are ordered alphabetically by series.  If it is listed twice, I watched it twice.

If you want to dig in, click below.  Use the filters at the top (though you should probably always select LAST YEAR as date range). Also on each graph you can click and DRILL DOWN for more info per category.

I had all the data, so I plugged it into Zoho Analytics for fast data visualization (Google sheets Explorations are pretty helpful and fun too). The embedded visualizations on the next page don’t display well on mobile devices. Also, these are very focused on minutes because that is what the program picked up on and  I did not do a lot of customizations.

Yes, the kids hijacked my feed on a few. But overall a good solid shoegazing year.
