Media Overload

OK lets see here. On my bookshelf there are probably over 20 unread books I want to read. On my video game shelf I have another 20 games I still haven’t defeated. My DVD’s are stacked with unopened and unwatched DVD’s.

This is what I call Media Overload. I love reading. I love playing video games. I love watching movies. The problems is that there is TOO MANY good books, video games and movies to consume.

Keep in mind there are also other pastimes I enjoy: eating, hanging out with friends, updating my website, reading feeds, sleeping, working out periodically, vacationing, and hanging with Tepper, Gizmo, and Che to keep the list short.

Everybody I believe has queues of entertainment they don’t have the time to do because of there are already a million things everybody needs to do and wants to do and sadly everybody has to work sometime.

Personally I don’t view this as a problem but more of a discussion point. It’s a good thing in our day of age that we have so much entertainment available. Do others find Media Overload a issue? I’d like to hear some feedback mostly because I think about it a lot.

    My whole life seems to revolve around media. My job, my personal life, my action movie Sunday, my hobbies, and my home life. There are thousands upon thousands of items of media that I would like to consume or enjoy. Buy alas, I’m like you Vanlandw. I just don’t have the time. I think if I get some aspects of my life in order and simplify my existence, I can find more time in my life to enjoy a good book, good movie, good walk, or a good photo.

    Before I became a librarian, I read like crazy and fast. Now that I have books in my face all day long and see all the news books that come out and see what other readers recommend, I’ve become a terrible reader. I start about six books a month without finishing because there are SO MANY BOOKS TO READ. It’s a vicious cycle. Also, all that media is time consuming. It takes me three days to watch a movie at home. I’m feeling you on this topic.
