Media Tracker

Media Tracker

For some reason, it’s important for me to track the pop culture that I consume. I have done so for the majority of my adult life, and it gives me an unreasonable amount of joy and a sense of control over my reality. I use various tools and services to organize all of the data, all of which are linked below.

🎬 Film

All-Time Top 100

My favorite films ranked and ordered. Compiled in 2017.

Film Diary

List of every film I’ve ever seen, with the most recent at the top. Films listed under SEP 2008 were seen before I tracked watch dates.

All-Time Stats

Summary of my film-watching career, including total number of films seen, time spent watching, and my progress towards completing various lists (like Sight and Sound’s Greatest Films).

Films by Ratings

Filtered by the stars I gave to a film: 5, 4.5, 4, 3.5, 3, 2.5, 2, 1.5, 1.

Film Lists

Various other lists of films I’ve created to organize and group the films I’ve seen.

Watchlist

A running list of films that I want to see.

📕 Books

Book Diary

List of every book I’ve ever read, with the most recent at the top. Books listed as being read on Sep 04, 2008 were finished before I kept track of precise completion dates.

🎵 Music

Recent Tracks

Most Listened To Artists

Most Listened to Songs

The songs I’ve listened-to the most (since 2006).

Favorite Songs

A personally curated and manually tagged list of my all-time favorite songs.

Year's Best Albums

Each year I create a playlist of the albums I’ve discovered that year that I love the most (the albums need not to be released that year, just discovered by me that year). Years playlists: 2023, 2022, 2021, 2020, 2015-2020.

Curated Playlists

Every so often I’ll create a playlist of exactly 10 songs, all of which match some type of mood or feeling that I’m in and that I feel go well together. I name each one. Playlists:

📺 TV Shows

I’m a little less aggressive about tracking my TV show consumption, as I only maintain a list of my favorite all-time shows (versus a holistic list of everything I’ve ever watched). Listed below is such a list (provided in no particular order). The Absolutley Adored classification identifies a show that, for me, is as good as it gets — these are most beloved shows. Shows tagged as Really Liked were those I still very much enjoyed, and will probably watch many times over, but for whatever reason we’re quite as loved as my highest classification.
