Yes, it’s a new year. Big, fat arbitrary deal. Well, yes, but I find it refreshing that something in our life of mostly culturally created pressures presents itself as an obviously merely cultural, arbitrary creation, as opposed to money, or romance, or politics, or your job, all of which, though largely if not wholly cultural, intrude in our lives in immediate ways that make them seem objective in some stronger way.
So, here’s my New Year’s resolution: I have a lot of recordings that need finishing, a lot of songs that I’ve never bothered to record decently, or at all, lots of recordings (video and audio) of old live shows and/or significant life events that I should digitize and put in an order such that if I die, then my relatives will be able to find things easily. I hereby resolve to fix, finish, or at least make progress on something 50 times (i.e. approximately once a week) over the course of 2010, and to prove it, I aim to post and possibly analyze to death at least some if this for the amusement of you, the kind readers of the world.
And I’m starting right now.
