Music Lives!

Resolute This

Have you got your list of New Year’s resolutions? I’m generally not a big believer in resolutions, but I’ll make some up special, just for you. All I really want to do is make sure you listen to good music while reading my blog. Here are a few songs to motivate you through the delicate starting stages of your resolutions.

Make ‘Em Scream & Shout

First thing I need to do this year is get more focused. Music Lives seem to have a great umbrella effect taking place. We’re listen to the community we’re serving and trying to adapt. How can we better facilitate musicians, bands and promoters. How can we help get more people to more shows, allowing promoters to throw even BIGGER shows? Being able to bounce ideas off of bands like Wakeless & Among Millions, and promoters, like GAIN Music & Fortnight, has been of huge value. Thanks for having the patience with answering all my questions about the biz! I think a great goal for 2012 is to make Guelph a non-stop tourist attraction, just based on our thriving music scene.

He’s Ordinary

Maybe I’ll be more brave this year. I think I’m too scared in a lot of situations. In the past I think that I’ve associated quick thinking and reacting in the moment with increased odds of making mistakes. I’m starting to think that sometimes mistakes can be fun. How am I going to learn anything if I’m afraid to commit to new things? I’m pretty sure I’ve missed out on more opportunities because of my approach then I’ve actually taken advantage of. This year I’ll put more of myself out there and stop over thinking. Like¬†RUSH¬†said, “If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.” I do this all the time. No more!

Like A Tiger Defying The Laws Of Gravity

So my last fake (but real) New Year’s resolution is to be more awesome. Less dark, more fun. I will turn down the suck knob and turn up the good. I hate negative people, which I’m not. I rarely ever complain aloud. I keep all my negativity all pushed down deep inside me to fester. This year I’ll try to live exactly like this Queen song. The lyrics are amazing!

Same In The End
So it turns out I do have so real resolutions. What started as a joke, as always, managed to become thoughtful and reflective. For me at least. Thanks readers! You’ve helped me out once again. Have any great resolutions you want to share on the internet for all the world to see? Have any ideas to make mine easier to accomplish? Share away! Let’s have a great 2012 and go out with a BANG!

    Great list.
    I don’t usually make resolutions either, ’cause I rarely keep them. However, I have started this year off trying to take better care of myself.
    Musically…I dont know. My birthday is in early Feb, so maybe that is my birthday goal…to set some music goals. Does that work?

    By the way, love that Rush quote. I really so think it is very profound.

    And one last ‘by the way’. I really, REALLY miss Calvin and Hobbes.
