August 2012 Media Thread

This is the monthly thread for post­ing me­dia of var­i­ous types that you’ve found that you en­joy. I find that ex­po­sure to LW ideas makes me less likely to en­joy some en­ter­tain­ment me­dia that is oth­er­wise quite pop­u­lar, and find­ing me­dia recom­mended by LWers is a good way to miti­gate this. Post what you’re read­ing, listen­ing to, watch­ing, and your opinion of it. Post recom­men­da­tions to blogs. Post what­ever me­dia you feel like dis­cussing! To see pre­vi­ous recom­men­da­tions, check out the older threads.


  • Please avoid down­vot­ing recom­men­da­tions just be­cause you don’t per­son­ally like the recom­mended ma­te­rial; re­mem­ber that lik­ing is a two-place word. If you can point out a spe­cific flaw in a per­son’s recom­men­da­tion, con­sider post­ing a com­ment to that effect.

  • If you want to post some­thing that (you know) has been recom­mended be­fore, but have an­other recom­men­da­tion to add, please link to the origi­nal, so that the reader has both recom­men­da­tions.

  • Please use the com­ment trees for gen­res. There is a meta thread for com­ments about fu­ture threads.

  • If you have a thread to add, such as a video game thread or an An­ime thread, please post it to the Other Me­dia thread for now, and add a poll to the Meta thread ask­ing if it should be a thread ev­ery month.
