This year’s nerd year resolutions are more like a 2014 to do list. It’s just a few simple things I’d like to accomplish for this blog. Last year’s resolutions went largely accomplished and as such, I’ve decided not to try and stretch too far in coming up with this year’s resolutions, or this year’s to do list.
First off, I’d like to read more. More books, more comics, more magazines. This blog focuses on media of all kinds, but I’ve been focusing too much on the visual mediums of movies and television. Yes, I’ll still be writing about those, but I’d like to add some more posts about the written word.
Secondly, I am going to start another blog series. I just finished, or more accurately, I’ve just reached a natural stopping point in my Ralph Bakshi Rotospective, that I think I’ll let that one rest for a while. The upcoming series will be about Old School Magic: The Gathering. A focus on what I played and the cards I played with. That will start later this month with a general introduction to the series.
Third, I would like to recruit a few more agents to write “Special Reports.” I am a geek (of many geekdoms), but I fully acknowledge that there are plenty of geekdoms out there and I, as one person, can only focus on so many. By the way, I really like the word “Geekdom.”
Number four on the to do list of 2014 is to rediscover something. I don’t know what it will be, I’m not going to try and force it, but it would be nice to rediscover something I enjoyed or even loved in my past that has been relegated to the sidelines of late.
Fifth and finally, I hope to be launching a “Spy vs Spy” series. The first one, could be happening in the next few months, where Agent Zapata and I will take opposite sides on a geek topic and argue for our side. This is be extremely interesting to watch out for, as I have no idea how it will turn out.
That’s it, that’s what you can look forward to from your friendly neighborhood geek, Agent Palmer.
