Here is a list of things I think should persevere into 2005, and a few that should cease to be--


  • The TV show "Lost" on ABC
  • Cartoon Network's Samurai Jack--we need new episodes
  • Pitch Black Mountain Dew--savory
  • The bands Modest Mouse and Franz Ferdinand
  • The four or five programmers worldwide who are still writing programs for the Sega Dreamcast--The Dreamcast Lives!
  • Classic videogame emulators for PC
  • Pixar Studios--keep surprising and delighting audiences
  • Ame Agaru and The Blog That Goes Ping!
  • Superior sequels such as Spider-Man 2 and Shrek 2
  • Good news
  • The Truth


  • "Reality" TV shows
  • Hybrid soft drinks--except for Pitch Black Mountain Dew
  • The use of the phrase "ATM machine"
  • The use of the suffixes "-gate" and "-aholic"
  • Knee-jerk reactions
  • Influx of spam on the Net
  • Rising gas prices
  • Throwing away ice cubes into trash cans
  • The release of four or five versions of the same movie on DVD
  • Road construction in Michigan
  • Bad news
  • Misinformation
