Three lists. Two look backward, one points to the future (I love melodrama).

I know we're a day into it, but I'd like to see these 10 things happen in 2013:
- I hope to see more tan lines in the Tumblr-based nudes I come across.
- It'd be great to get my head out of my ass at some point in the year.
- I'd like more attribution to take place on Tumblr, so I won't have to get on my fucking soapbox for the umpteenth time.
- A cash windfall. Hey, it could happen!
- A visit to Minneapolis. It's been two years, and five since I visited Grumpy's.
- I need to meet the man who does these signs for Public Meat. It'd be nice to get one of those joints, too.
- Mik Baro will post his more recent work on gigposters.com. That'd be killer. What's currently there is a far cry from the badass shit that he's doing right now.
- Maybe Michel Casarramona will update his site? Add a blog or something? Fingers crossed.
- iTunes. I have serious iTunes problems. It'd be great to take care of those.
- Disney...seriously. Stop being dicks about the Ward Kimball book. Like, where do you fuckers get off?
