Happy New Year 2015!
Another year is gone and I am staggering into the new year, not with a hangover, mind you (I have developed an allergic reaction to alcohol, sigh), but with a crippling cold that makes my head feel twice as big.
Anyway, I wish everybody a happy new year and good luck with all your endeavors.
I do not yet have a tally on the number of actual reviews I made in 2014, the picture is muddled by non-review posts, special Danish entries and escapades further down the list, but on the last day of the year I reached the 250 movie mark, though it depends a bit on how you count them. That is a nice round number and the objective I was aiming for so I am happy with that.
Right now I am deep into 1951 and despite a slump in quality of late I am thoroughly pleased with the movies I am watching. There are lots of interesting stuff coming up and knowing the editors by now there will also be some nice surprises. If all goes well I aim for the 300 mark by the end of 2015 and maybe even a bit further.
For Christmas I got two new books: “1001 Restaurants You Must Experience Before You Die” and “1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die”.
The restaurant book I think is best suited as a travel guide. Going through that one would soon become very expensive and while I do travel for food, this I feel would be taking it a bit too far. Also the restaurant business is fickle. A few years down the road the scene may have changed substantially and I would only be limited by a list.
The book list however has lasting value and although my reading speed prohibits me from ever completing such a list it is very tempting to give it a shot. So, my plan for 2015 is to branch out with a second blog. How exactly that works with two blogs in tandem I have yet to figure out, but the New Year is a time for bloated promises and intensions and this will be mine. Do not hold your breath though. It may take months before I start it and the blog rate will be very slow.
Take care and all the best from here.
