My 2017's Lists and Numbers

Published on .

At the end of the year, I like putting lists together and reviewing numbers for the things I managed to keep track of during the year. This is a fun way for me to look back at 2017 through the things I enjoy the most — music, films, concerts, traveling, and games!

Traveling #

In 2017 I visited to 10 cities in 7 contries. To get to these cities and back, I traveled twice by train, 6 times by car, and 7 times by plane.

  1. Brussels, Belgium
  2. Liege, Belgium
  3. Luxembourg, Luxembourg
  4. Cologne, Germany
  5. Dubrovnik, Croatia
  6. New York City, USA
  7. Chicago, USA
  8. Iowa City, USA
  9. Paris, France
  10. Bogotá, Colombia

This year I finally visited New York City, which is, next to Tokyo, among the cities I've always wanted to visit the most. It was definitely the traveling highlight of the year for me.

Concerts #

I attended 10 live shows, for 9 different artists, across 5 different cities in 3 countries.

  1. Dream Theater — Tilburg
  2. Between The Buried And Me — Amsterdam
  3. Devin Townsend — Amsterdam
  4. Haken — Amsterdam
  5. Fatboy Slim — Amsterdam
  6. Snarky Puppy — Eindhoven
  7. The Shattered Fortress — Tilburg
  8. La Yegros — Luxembourg
  9. LCD Soundsystem — Amsterdam
  10. Dream Theater — New York City

Dream Theater were the first and last live shows I attended during the year. Neat!

Music #

I used Spotify almost exclusively to listen to music during 2017.

I listened for a total of 29699 minutes of music during the whole year, which is the same as 495 hours, or 20.6 days. I honestly feel surprised it was this little.

The artist I listened to the most was The Dear Hunter.

The song I listened to the most was People Who Eat Darkness by Steven Wilson.

Overall, my favourite album of the year was To The Bone by Steven Wilson, followed by Arcade Fire's Everything Now.

Films #

According to my Film Diary in Letterboxd, which I tried to keep accurate through the whole year, I watched 57 films in 2017.

Out of those, 32 of them I watched at home, 15 on the cinema, and 9 while travelling (of which 4 were while on a plane).

Out of those, Blade Runner 2049 was my favourite film of the year, with Coco being a close second.

23 of these films I watched on Netflix.

I feel like I didn't watch as many films as I would have liked, so that's something I'll try to improve on next year. This year I also signed-up for Amazon Prime Video, so I hope it makes for more films to watch during next year.

Games #

This year I played 31 games, and finished 13 of those.

22 of them were on PS4, 3 on Switch, 4 on Nintendo 2DS, 1 on SNES (Classic Mini), 1 on iOS, and 1 with emulation.

1 of them was a replay.
