On This Day in History...

The Great-Grandaddy of Rock & Roll was born on this day way the hell back in 1770...I've always enjoyed listening to classical music, but have never gone out of my way to do it - knowwhatimean? Last Saturday, though, I got a backstage look at the Charleston Symphony Orchestra's performance of Handel's Messiah. It was pretty cool! I think one of my (many) New Year's Resolutions will be to do something cultured like that once a month.

I don't think it would hurt to check out one of the many museums here on a Saturday instead of lounging on my couch ordering Papa John's and watching Aqua Teen Hunger Force DVDs (which I will still do from time to time - in addition to playing poker, running the best damn kickball league in the US of A, and hitting the occasional open mic and/or karaoke night)...

What are your resolutions? For you slackers that haven't thought about it yet, here are some ideas (read: my resolutions). If yours isn't on here, post it here - that way, it's in print forever, and you HAVE to see it through then!

New Year Resolutions

What is/are your New Year Resolution(s)?

Get in Shape
Pay off Debts
Learn to Work on My Car
Spend More Time with Family
Travel More
Get Some Friggin' Culture
Read More, Watch Less
Do at Least One Insane Thing (Skydive, bungee jump, etc)
Follow That Really Cool Idea I Had All the Way Through
Learn How to Say "No" a Little Better

Search The Internet


I love Handel's Messiah -- and it just isn't Christmas until I hear it at least once the whole way through.

I am so jealous that you got backstage passes. (Revealing my true dorkiness now, but I used to be quite the accomplished flute player and really, really miss playing with an orchestra.)

You left off my favorite resolution: drink more and have as much sex as possible. I guess maybe that is two resolutions but they always seem to end up combined in my world...

My "Backstage Look" was actually me put to work for the CSO! I helped unload the truck full of gear, help set the stage, then break everything down and load the truck after it was all over...
It was really cool!

Give me Meatwad over Mozart any day of the week. If I want to go home before intermission, it's probably not worth forcing on myself. So back home to MC P Pants on TV it is!
Strangely enough, my first resolution is: Learn how to say "Yes" a little better. My second: Spend less time with family.

And I'll take Master Shake over Mahler most any day, too! "Drizzle here."

I've GOT to get season 3 on DVD...

but a little string quartert or a good fugue never hurts from time to time...

OK, obviously I'm a drip. Thanks for making it so painfully obvious. Dammit.

Don't feel bad, Aleigh. I do aspire to be as culturally enlightened as you are, I just can't seem to get there!
