Not a great year for movies, I thought Guardians 2 was awful (I've had enough of the Marvel films to be honest), but I enjoyed Baby Driver, It, Dunkirk and The Last Jedi.

Plenty of good TV - Last Man on Earth, Mindhunter, Detectorists, Professor T, Line of Duty, Last Week Tonight, The Good Place, Black Mirror, The Vietnam War, The Handmaid's Tale, Catastrophe, Unforgotten and Inside No 9 for starters.

According to Spotify my most played albums were:
Pond - The Weather
The Moonlandingz - Interplanetary Class Classics
Ron Gallo - Heavy Meta
Steven Wilson - To the Bone
The War on Drugs - A Deeper Understanding

Favourite tracks:
Sufjan Stevens - Wallowa Lake Monster
Pond - Sweep Me Off My Feet
Kevin Morby - Parade
British Sea Power - International Space Station
Slowdive - Star Roving
The Moonlandingz - This Cities Undone
Steven Wilson - Nowhere Now
Mark Lanegan - Beehive
Granddaddy - A Lost Machine
Tears for Fears - I Love You but I'm Lost
Jane Weaver - The Architect

I also enjoyed a few podcasts this year, including The Bugle, Athletico Mince (worth a listen for the Peter Beardsley monologues alone!), SMERSHPOD, Under the Skin and Unfiltered.
