January 2016 Media Thread

This is the monthly thread for post­ing me­dia of var­i­ous types that you’ve found that you en­joy. 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.

Rules:

  • 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 post only un­der one of the already cre­ated sub­threads, and never di­rectly un­der the par­ent me­dia thread.

  • Use the “Other Me­dia” thread if you be­lieve the piece of me­dia you want to dis­cuss doesn’t fit un­der any of the es­tab­lished cat­e­gories.

  • Use the “Meta” thread if you want to dis­cuss about the monthly me­dia thread it­self (e.g. to pro­pose adding/​re­mov­ing/​split­ting/​merg­ing sub­threads, or to dis­cuss the type of con­tent prop­erly be­long­ing to each sub­thread) or for any other ques­tion or is­sue you may have about the thread or the rules.
