SEEN/READ 2017

Admittedly second-degree stole this idea from Mr. Steven Soderbergh, whose infinitely more impressive list(s) can be found here. My list will start a month prior to 2017. That’s right. Behold, a running list of all the things I’m seeing and reading…

2017

I don’t count the publications or individual articles I’ve read. Mostly because I’m bad at keeping track. Nor do I include single episodes of TV Shows, unless its something monumental (i.e. Twin Peaks). I may have forgotten to include all the films I’ve re-watched.
