TracyDMcGrath I’m assuming you made this one because you saw mine at the beginning of my post? There’s a fair amount of these in there! I agree with all of your choices, very good taste thank you.
antillese It pains me to admit I’m the kind of asshole that uses gmail drafts and docs (as seen on my post) AND super vintage old school regular plain txt to keep notes on the PC. Gonna give OneNote a try to see if I like it, and I since liked The City & The City quite a lot I’m guessing I’m gonna lose my pants over Perdido and The Scar when I get to them!
captain I do this too, mostly with games but also with movies. In fact I shared my list of the games I played through 2020 in another thread, but might as well paste it here too! (some of them are replays, mind you)

I have too experienced that score overdose fever with movies and my advice would be: don’t put the scores when you add the movies. Do just the name and add the scores later, when you have a bunch of them pending or just when you feel like it really, it’ll help you relax and stop thinking on the damn number while you are watching the film. Also don’t take the score too seriously, and allow yourself to change it later if you feel like a reassestment is needed.
It’s strange because I guess this should have happened to me with videogames too also but I think games tend to be longer and allow more space to let your mind wander without focusing or demanding for your atention as wholly as a book or a movie does. Not that bad to reflect how are you liking the thing while farming experience or in the middle of a race in a circuit you have already memorized.
Kez It’s okay to be utilitarian with them! Lists are after all very useful, my message was more about trying to encourage people to consider the possibility of thinking outside the box but sometimes you do want to use lists that way!
bodydouble Hey this is cool. As I said, I’m a monster who uses email drafts as portable notes because until now I hadn’t bothered to use specialized apps. I also have these kind of freeflow miscelaneous notes, here’s an example, I even dare to throw pictures in there sometimes.
I saved that image because it’s hilarious to me, the text box translates as: “JORGE: wants to be hardcore and his mom doesn’t let him”. My real name is also Jorge and that’s the reason why I saved it.
