2021: Entertainment

Well, 2021! You would think everything was back to normal. A bit, but still not quite. And just like 2020, entertainment helped so much to pass the time, and sometimes it reminded us that things were kinda normal.

I recounted the most impactful entertainment pieces for me in 2014. Then I did it again for 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020.

Movies I Saw

Well, we still have yet to go to a theater, except that one moment that we saw Everybody’s Talking About Jamie at Oracle Park. But it reminded me how hard it was hear when there’s PEOPLE. I enjoy HBO Max and Disney+.

  • Nobody
  • In the Heights
  • Godzilla vs. Kong
  • South Park: Post Covid
  • The Mitchells vs the Machines

TV Shows I Watched

  • Industry
  • Succession
  • Hacks
  • Wandavision
  • Loki

Books I Read

  • The Loneliest Americans
  • Earthlings
  • A Visit from the Goon Squad (yes, I know that I was several years later)
  • The Midnight Library (for the concept mostly)
  • Crying in Hmart (less on the representation, but just some resonant scenes)

Ways to Pass the Time

  • Baking bread
  • Watching. So. Much. TV.
  • Trying to write something, but end up not being happy with it, so it just sits on my computer
  • Telling Chris to clean up
  • Work on yet another personal project, usually something related to the wedding (yes, even now)

Technology

  • Spotify (for some reason, after nearly a year, I didn’t realize that I could listen to music without disturbing other people because nobody is around!)
  • Google Home (and now if it actually listen to my voice)
  • Pixel 6 (if it actually SHIPPED)
  • Would have been Clubhouse, but the craze died quickly, I am sad
  • Discord, but it only works if you have the right community
