I Polled the Fam On Their Music & Movie Preferences…

I had week and a half here over Christmas break to spend some good quality time hanging with my family. We’re viscous gamers and competition levels have been high from the pool table to Scattegories. But – we do share many similar interests when it comes to movies and music (for the most part), so I’m sure we will see some overlap in here somewhere or another. I decided to ask a few common questions we review on our blog often for the hell of it. This is the result. Probably will add a bit over time.

Honestly, this isn’t really exciting content to be honest. I mean it’s really just opinions of people you don’t know. But whatever it’s my blog so who cares. It’s something right? And I like putting up content. So this is what you get today.

I’m more interested in your own takes than these, so SEND EM ALONG!
