Media saturation

Deadlines are coming in for everything today — Oklahoma Film Critics’ Circle voting, top 10 movies for the Oklahoman, top 10 comics and videogames for my weekly columns in the Oklahoman.   It’s enjoyable in some ways, but it does make me wish that Hollywood and the video game industry spaced out their releases a little better. Video games will go weeks with no major releases, then slam everything out near the end of the year.  And Hollywood tends to cluster potential award-winners in December.

Fortunately, comics don’t cluster their potential award-winners as badly. That said, Friday will be a madhouse of a release day, as everyone tries to push out inventory before the end of the year.
