Default Your Musical Resolutions For 2012.

This is something I've done for fun the last couple of years, which is set myself frivolous goals in my music listening to meet in the coming year. Last year I set myself five goals. Only failed one from last year.
Resolutions for 2011
  • Surpass 70,000 songs played on lastFM
  • Top personal record of shows per year: current record 2
  • Discover one metal album I will listen to regularly
  • Discover one hiphop album I will listen to regularly
  • Keep on top of new releases as they come out
  • Bump personal collection over 300

Resolutions for 2012:
  • Increase collection to 400.
  • Surpass 200,000 songs on lastFM.
  • Surpass 2000 artists on lastFM.
  • Surpass 3000 albums rated on RYM.
  • Surpass 100 reviews written.
  • Discover one or more metal albums I would listen to regularly.
  • Write a guide to psychedelic pop.
  • Listen to 200 new releases.
  • ...
  • Profit.

I'll add to this as I think of ways I'd like to push myself. It's always amusing to go back and see what you managed to do in the previous year.

I hereby resolve to start a music journal, and be less "inane", now Pedestrian has explained to me what it means.

1. Listen to 366 albums I've never listened to before. Open for suggestions.
2. Attend 5 concerts.
3. Get a record player that won't break on me.
4. Learn to play the sitar.
5. Hit 35,000 plays on (just reset my play count)

I will fail one of these resolutions.

1. Obtain more music (my goal is to have 200+ albums in my collection by the end of the year).
2. Listen to more recent releases (I've only heard 4 albums from this year. What the hell is wrong with me?)
3. Listen to more hip-hop and electronic.
4. Start a music journal.
5. Attend a concert (missed my chances to attend a few last year).
6. Expand my physical music collection.
7. Discover 50+ artists that I haven't heard of before.

1.) Listen to at least 50 new albums from the year 2012.
2.) Play at least five open mics.
3.) Compose or commission soundtrack music for my film.
4.) Acquire a plethora of stringed instruments...or, at least one of the following: Ukulele, Mandolin, Banjo, Violin/Fiddle, Dulcimer, Bass, or new electric guitar.
5.) Finish my Phish reviews, and 100 albums reviews. Phish are on their way to being finished, and I've got the list for the 100 albums. Just a matter of finding time to write them.
6.) See 3 or more concerts.
7.) Go to the Harvest Festival.
8.) Put ego aside and finally take a few guitar lessons.
9.) Become more well-versed in music theory.
10.) Discover at least 25 bands I've never heard of.
11.) Buy a lot more vinyl.
12.) External hard drive for music collection.
13.) Write a song that makes someone cry.
14.) Purchase a better microphone for recording.
15.) Release a polished EP.
16.) Get a new pair of headphones.

It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken
Perhaps they're better left unsung
