As of 9/1/19, here are my piles …

Movies: 114

Books: 105

Comics: 270

Podcast Episodes Remaining: 137

My goal, as I mentioned in the last post, is to turn accumulation into a zero-sum game.  So, as I read, watch, and listen, I will post quick reviews.  I may cross-post some things to my other blogs, Pop Culture Affidavit and Required Reading with Tom & Stella, but for the most part, you’ll be seeing a lot of posts with short synopses and opinions using the following rating system:

  • If I own it = keep, sell, donate, or trash
  • If it’s rented/borrowed/streamed = worth buying, worth the rental, a waste of my time

The Rules

The rules are simple, but they may change, as may my goals.  For me, this is mostly about accountability and less about a crazy gimmicky rule, so I am going to read, watch, or listen to only what I only have with three exceptions:

  • My new comics pull list, which will not be added to unless something is removed (this includes two series of trade paperbacks that I have been collecting).
  • Theatrical movies.  I don’t go to the movies that often, so I will allow myself this, especially considering I really want to see Avengers: Endgame.
  • Anything that is a required borrow/rental/purchase for work or for a podcast.
