This year, Toby and I combined a few of our New Year’s resolutions. I think this has to do with sharing one, very huge future goal. Anyway, here are a few of mine with at least one goal in mind:
- 1). Pay off ALL of my debt. (We almost had this completed until we moved across the country twice.)
- 2). Figure out what I want to do with my life.
- 3). Lose 25 pounds.
- 4). Take up a new hobby. (I’m looking for suggestions. And if it makes me money, I’ll give you 10 percent of whatever I make).
- 5). Become a better long-distant friend. (I am STILL sitting on a gift I purchased for Nico in July.)
- 6). Use, less, commas, while writing.
- 7). Pay more attention to new music.
I wasn’t really up on the latest and greatest this year. Actually, I haven’t been up on the latest and greatest IN years. There was a time when are all I cared about were movies and music. I’ve become lazy at 30. I’m going to give this a shot anyway, knowing full-well I’ll remember something or hear something in a year from now that came out this year and regret some of my choices.
Top 5 Albums of 2004:
- 5). TV On the Radio: Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes
- 4). PJ Harvey: Uh Huh Her
- 3). Interpol: Antics
- 2). Modest Mouse: Good News for People Who Like Bad News
- 1). The Postal Service: Give Up
I had The Shins: Chutes Too Narrow on there as well as an M Ward: Transfiguration of Vincent. And wouldn’t you know, but both of these CDs came out in 2003. I’m always a year behind. This is why I don’t play this game too often. M Ward does, however, have a new CD coming out in February. Yay.
Anyway, The Postal Service is my top favorite album of 2004. My goodness, is it wonderful. I have a feeling, had I been exposed to it sooner, I would have really enjoyed Arcade Fire: Funeral. But I only just heard about them recently.
I would do movies, but I think my head might explode should I try.
