I have some friends collecting movie & music data for the month of August - what are some innovative/interesting things I can do with the results?

One friend is a music writer, he gets a couple of albums every day to review. The other just watches a patently absurd amount of movies. Because I just freaking love data compilation, I've given them both charts to keep track of the albums/movies, with categories both normal (title, length, etc) and silly (weirdest instrument used, connect someone in them movie to kevin bacon, etc). At the end of the month I want to present each of them with some sort of visual display of how they spent the month. Do you have any ideas on how best to accomplish this?
Also it's still early enough in August to add categories, if you have any suggestions.
