    Since there are people from all over the world here with lots of different cultures, can as many people as possible put in a post what sorts of media they've participated in over the past week.

    If you put your gender, age and nationality that'd be cool too...

    say for example

    Country: New Zealand
    Gender: Male
    Age: 16

    then write any movies you've seen, any TV, Radio, Paper, anything you feel like;

    Webcast Appple Keynote as an example

    please try and include for TV and radio the channel.

    Hope this gets interesting.

    Thanks

    I don't listen to the radio because I hate 99% of what's being played on it, I don't watch too much TV anymore for whatever reason, only a few shows, Farscape, Malcom in the Middle, Enterprise, South Park, more that I watch occasionally but I can't remember at the moment.....

    I luv movies however and wish I had the money (or the bandwith to watch some online) to go out and see more but ah well.

    Sites I frequent are Macrumors, Funmac.com (mod there), Macosx.com, /., Lindows.com forums, bunches of other Mac and media stuff sites.

    Don't read much but plan to in the future but I need a job really bad first.

    I haven't really done a lot over the last week,

    watched Minority Report in the weekend, no shows of interest.

    Macrumors, CNN, iPoding, Powerbook Reviews, 5 minutes of the paper on NASA stuff.

    No Radio - with vniow, completely agree.

    So far looks reasonably interesting, I'm the only person so far not from the US... oh well,

    thanks so far...

    Yes, it's new, the Series Premiere was Sunday 2/4 @ 10pm EST. "The Silver Slayer," it was based on a copy cat of the Hillside Stangler. I think its a great show, worth your time to catch it next Sunday. ;) I missed the line "Just the facts mam."
