Media Bites – February 2019

This month was decent for TV, but very lacking for new music which is usually my favorite part of these posts. Here’s my wrap up of some of the movies, television shows, music, and other media that I’ve consumed and thought was worth sharing for the month of February 2019.

Best of 2018

2018 felt like the longest year every while also speeding past us. On New Year’s Eve we played a little game, 2018: Bummer, or Not a Bummer? Personally 2018 was not a bummer for us. We saw a bunch of awesome concerts, spent quality time with family and all the kids, moved to Austin and began renovating our new house. The continued shit show that is the President and what he’s doing to our country? Definitely a bummer, but the midterm elections

We’re starting to get into regular viewings of TV and movies, but the holidays will definitely put a stop to that. Here’s my wrap up of some of the movies, television shows, music, and other media that I’ve consumed and thought was worth sharing for the month of November 2018.

Another light month for movies and TV shows, but here’s my wrap up of some of the movies, television shows, music, and other media that I’ve consumed and thought was worth sharing for the month of October 2018.

Marvel Cinematic Universe Rewatch Preview

Earlier this summer Marvel did what was once unimaginable. They released Avengers: Infinity War – their 19th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) which was built upon all of the movies that came before it.
