My 2008 New Year's Resolutions

Well, this is a little late, it is true, but I really wanted to think about what I wanted to commit to doing this year, and that took an extra 24 hours.

Naturally, these are just my resolutions for my pop culture interactions and blogging work.


I pledge to post 250 entries this year, or roughly 5 times a week.

I plan to bring back Culture Kills Comics.

I want to get something once again published in the legitimate press.

I want to create a piece of electronic music. I made an attempt a few years ago, but I think I can do better now.

I want to play/own the following games:
Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan Wars
Resident Evil 4
Destroy All Humans
Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories
Grand Theft Auto Vice City Stories
God of War 2
Freedom Fighters
Time Splitters
Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition
Beyond Good and Evil
Star Wars: Battlefront II
Gun Griffon Blaze

I want to see the following movies:
No Country for Old Men
The Sting
Once Upon a Time in America
Harold and Maude
El Topo
The Seven Samurai

I want to read these books:
Choke by Chuck Palahniuk
Hey Nostradamus! by Douglas Coupland
Blood's a Rover by James Ellroy
The Plot to Save Socrates by Paul Levinson

I want to run at least 3 interviews.


Let's see how much of this I can accomplish this year.

Five times a week! I commend your ambition. I can also get behind Chinatown and anything by Coupland. But the "legitimate" media? You give it too much power.

Becca said...

Hooray! Comics are coming back!!

MC said...

Jeremy: There was a point when I was posting 10 times a week, so 5 is a much more modest goal for my single, childless ass than it might seem ;) And I merely meant that I went through the rigors of the submission process and had my work weighed and measured and not found wanting.

Becca: Yeah, hopefully I will actually have something funny to say by then.

So ehm... if you plan to play all those games, will you have time for all the other stuff?

Happy New Year, Babe!

Maven said...

I saw No Country For Old Men. Grizzly and suspenseful, with no concise ending.

Happy new year, MC!

MC said...

Dutchy: There is always time for other things...

MC said...

Maven: I've heard that about the movie... I was watching Richard Roeper and A.O. Scott discuss just that over the weekend.

You've never seen The Sting? Ooh boy are you in for a treat!!!!

MC said...

Well, I do love a good cinematic heist/scam.
