I don’t really do new years resolutions, for obvious reasons, but I do read books and watch movies every year, so I thought I’d come up with goals for those.
I got carried away and included some more statistics from last year alas I didn’t include any theater, dance/ballet, or art expositions.
One of my goals for 2016 was to see 104 movies I hadn’t seen previously (that’s two per week), I made it to 126.
My idea was to see more Korean, Asian, and French movies, I was also interested to see more Film Noir. I do think I succeeded even though I saw a lot of crap, Blackhat and J.S.A.: Joint Security Area, I’m looking at you among others.
In no particular order:
Animated movies by DC Comics
Nymphomaniac (Vol. 1 & 2)
Atlantis: The Lost Empire
The Jungle Book
No Tears For The Dead
I can’t really explain the amount of animated movies in there.
Aside from those I read a ton of articles from Hacker News.
I’d like this list to be longer but the truth is I frequent more techno parties than anything else.
Moderat, Forest National, B
Although I prefer their older work this was really an amazing gig, mostly because of the lightshow. Afterwards I went to R&S Label Night, Kompass club, B. Excellent night!
Sunn O))), Vooruit, B
This is by far the loudest show I’ve ever seen, even with ear plugs. I couldn’t grasp why other people weren’t bothered by the volume. The crowd was rather shoegazing or in trance/zombie mode. Compelling show, worth seeing!
That night’s opener:
Gorilla Biscuits, Trix, B
Fun, just regular, old fun! Lawnmowers, picking-up-the-change, windmills, you name it! I don’t recall the other bands but I’m sure Modern Life Is War was there as well.
What did I listen to the most?
My iTunes reads 62 plays for this three hour mix, I quite enjoy listening to it while I’m working.
