why I heart my media

My all time favourite film is Kill Bill Vol. 1.

I mean I love it because it is a great film with an amazing plot and there’s just so much attention to detail as well as the music, which just fits every single time. But I love it because I used to watch it with my dad. We used to watch it together on rainy Sunday afternoons in the fall, we used to watch it on a nice July evening on a projector in our garden and we used to watch it basically every single time we got the chance to do so.

Media connects people. It creates lasting memories. When I watch Kill Bill now I still think about the perfect choice of music, the attention to detail, the over-the-top violence but what I think about most is the feeling of a rainy afternoon, a nice warm summer evening and the look on my fathers face when Uma Thurman finally gets her revenge. And I can recall that feeling wherever I am.

And that is why I heart my media, because even though I just wrote about one example there are about 600 more in which I cherished a moment with my friends, my family, an ex girlfriend or some random guy at sports bar, all because we consumed some time of film, series, music, Formula 1 GP or the World Championship together.

Media connects everybody
