another short year

There. It's over. 2004 is history, one way or another. 2005 is (from this perspective) as yet unrealized history. I don't have a whole lot of hope on this end, but I'll wish it to you, all the same. It never hurts. Well, it hardly ever hurts. In this coming year, I wish you hope and freedom from fear and persecution. I wish you insight, into yourselves and whichever incarnation of reality you prefer. I wish you courage, above all other things.

I think I might be in the mood for one of those BestOf things, if only because I did one last year. But a caveat: I consciously reduced my consumerism this year. I saw many fewer movies. Bought even fewer CDs. Etc. So, this is anything but comprehensive. In fact, this year I sort of think I should only do film. We bought so few CDs that my list would just be silly. Maybe I should call it "Movies I Liked Best in 2004":

The Aviator
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
The Village
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Lemony Snickett's A Series of Unfortunate Events
Dawn of the Dead (2004)
Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
Blueberry (aka, Renegade)
Kill Bill Vol. 2
Shrek 2
Garden State

Worst Film (hands down):
The Day After Tomorrow

Opinions really are like assholes...

The phorum has been up and down (and mostly down, for all intents MIA) for several days now. I have no idea why. I have made inquiries that have yet to be answered. But I did want to let everyone know that, despite the views I expressed in a recent thread, I didn't kill it. Presumably, it will return. In the meantime, I would suggest that discussion move to the Species of One LJ community.

I was going to write something else, but I don't think I'm in the mood for it. 2005. It's a more forceful-looking number than 2004. Harder. Ah, well.
