Being something of a pop culture geek and avid media consumer (seriously, I spend waaay too much time on my couch *g*), I read and watch in a wide variety of genres.

I have recently started to use this blog to post reviews for these things and try to keep to an (at least) one-post-per-week schedule.

You can find additional information as well as links to the places where I keep track of the things I read and watch on my About page.

Happy New Year!

It’s time for music!

Wow, another year past… and it was a pretty good one (on a personal, definitely not a political level – and I’m still so sad about Carrie Fisher and the other great people we lost this year), ending with the absolute highlight of 4 weeks in New Zealand. So here’s my annual mix, following the same rules as always:

1. Only songs I added to iTunes in 2016 (i.e. new to me, not new per se)
2. Only 1 song per artist
3. Not more than 25 songs
