an early resolution

My new year's resolution for 2007 is that I will continue my shoe sobriety for the whole year. Yup, no shoes from now until January of 2008...

I had you going there for a minute, didn't I? Did you really think I could go a whole year without buying shoes? Oh, hell no! I'm not ever half way through the 90 days and I'm wondering how I'm going to make it. So far, I've only had one pair of shoes I've seriously thought about breaking down and buying, but I somehow managed to walk away. But, that's all beside the point.

My early new year's resolution is to record and make comments about every book I read, album I buy, and movie I see next year. Sound silly and like I'm going to be making very boring blog posts for the next year? Yeah, maybe a bit of both, but the point is that when 2007 ends I'll be able to accurately create a best of list (best movies I saw, books I read, etc).

Right now I can't tell you what the best movie I saw this year was, simply because I can't remember half the movies I saw. And don't get me started on music. I buy more music than I should, it's as simple as that.

I don't plan on overloading my blog with all of this information on a daily basis, maybe I'll have a side page with the most recent comments and stuff. I haven't really worked out the specifics yet.

Anyway, stayed tuned for that.

  1. So what's the deal with music? I heard someone on NPR today talk about the best music of the year. I thought, there was new music this year? I don't listen to the radio except for NPR because it's excrutiating, so I just don't have a way of discovering new music. Apparently there are even new genres of music I haven't heard of, like "emo," I think. I guess I'm just too lame. Or maybe there just isn't any good music anymore. When does "Chinese Democracy" come out again?
