Re-watching, Re-reading, Re-playing
In this episode:
- This week we explore when and why we
choose to re-experience pieces of media. We may actually do this
differently than a lot of people, so we wanted to talk about it and
see what makes something worth going back to.
- For Void, he has a problem with
wanting to experience new things. He's an introvert, so going out
and roaming isn't necessarily his thing, but with games, movies,
tv, and books, he can really get a feel for so many things that
aren't available around him.
- Beej feels close to the same, but
comes at it from a more existential place: he can't get through
everything he wants to before he dies, so he wants to get as much
in as he possibly can before then.
- We talk about the different ways we
approach retreads as well. Void will use media to specifically
direct his mood so that he can sit in a particular mindset, while
Beej uses them cathartically and instead of sitting it in them like
Void and becoming contemplative about them, he comes out the other
side feeling refreshed and relaxed.
- There are a lot of reasons to really
go back to different pieces of media, and these mentioned in the
notes are only scratching the surface of the discussion. Let us
know what makes something worth revisiting for you, too!
