Great Media

This page contains a list of my favorite movies, music, and shows. It’s not just stuff I consider “good, I enjoyed it.” It’s stuff I consider astoundingly, insanely great. “I wish to experience this again and again and again, and each subsequent experience is better than the previous.” All of these have had an effect on the way I see the world, on my writing, and on my life. That’s what’s on this list. In no particular order.
