2008? Weren’t we just down in our bunkers waiting for the world to end when it hit 2000?

I’m not going to be so high-and-mighty as to say that I don’t make New Year’s resolutions. It’s just natural. We see the coming year as a clean slate, and we look back on all the crap we didn’t (or did) do last year and decide to clean up our act. I’m going back on my diet. I’m going to be a better chairman of the Education Committee at church. I’m going to clean up the back bedroom. Blah. Blah. Blah. These are all things I should have been doing all along, but here’s a chance to change my lazywicked ways. I’m not saying that I’ll do any better in 2008 that I did in 2007, but why not give it a try?

The new year is also a good time to start new projects. One thing that I’d like to give a go is something similar to the Thing A Week that Jonathan Coulton did where he wrote, recorded and published a song each week for a year. Mine’s totally different, because A) I’m going to post mine on Saturday night instead of Friday and B) I’m not Jonathan Coulton.

I’m already in the hole for this year, as the first Saturday is only a couple of days away, and I have’nt written a thing. (HINT: Song subject suggestions are always welcome.)

So, will I accomplish all my goals? Will 2008 turn out to be a banner year?

What am I? Psychic?

    I tried to watch that whole Sylvia Brown clip, but she pisses me off too much to tolerate.

    She is the prime example of if you throw enough crap up against the wall, some of it might eventually stick.

    People that buy into that stuff scare me.

    No resolutions for “me”, as I know me too well, and “me” won’t follow through. Although I did decide late last year that I was going to make a concerted effort to get some more exercise after Christmas, so that might count, I suppose. I am really tired of being a lump. Not expecting six-pack abs over here, but I’d like to reduce it from the whole damn keg!

    You know I’m already ass-deep in resolutions.

    Bring on the songs!!! Hmmm… song subject matter…

    Re: song subject matter

    There’s always plagiarism/copyright infringement. In other words, be a cover band!

    Solly already knows if he goes the “cover” route I’ll probly bury him with “ideas”…heh.

    Though it’s not a bad idea to maybe cover some obscure cool stuff. Put your own spin on it. Just to get back in the swing of things. Now I have to think of something, dammit! 🙂
