2010 is the year that everyone who wears button up sweaters and chucks will replace their heads with rear view mirrors and handle bars. Thanks Vespa-sponsored street art!
Hey guys! Its been an interesting year of playing Scrabble and filming concerts here at Baeble (mostly concerts), but 2010 promises to be all kinds of exciting! Like stopping the playing of Scrabble! Maybe we'll play our Star Wars Monopoly. Or tons of exciting concert prospects! I don't want to be a gossip, so I'll just say our latest concert proposals have to do with blood, kind of probably.
If you can garner anything from that, you deserve to know. Don't quote me. There will be blood. We are going to do some serious milkshake drinking!
Anyway, 2010 is a big year for the world, because many consider it the end of the decade. Year end lists and decade retrospectives have flooded our faces during December, and despite Christmas cheer and Hanukkah chutzpah (official Jewmenology), we've been totally overwhelmed with talking about the past ten years! I know its valuable to take a step back and observe the awesome things and the terrible things, and file them into top ten lists of worsts and bests, no I get it. But please stop.
Also has anyone noticed that the past ten years has been full of really great developments in technology (iPods, Facebook, Bootypop [[JOKE]]), but not so much in making superstar celebrities? We actually hate most of the people we spend tons of time talking about, like Smitney Beers and J. Lohan and Jon and Kate. Whats up with that? What? Yeah its probably nothing. More Champagne!
So I'll leave Baeble of 2009 with some potent quotables about new begginings. Lets hope you can glean some wisdom off the wisdom of others, because nobody beats the Wiz. Except that the Wiz went out of business this decade! And we were all pretty stupid.
"New Year's is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls and humbug resolutions."
"Youth is when you're allowed to stay up late on New Year's Eve. Middle age is when you're forced to."
P. J. O'Rourke:
"The proper behavior all through the holiday season is to be drunk. This drunkenness culminates on New Year's Eve, when you get so drunk you kiss the person you're married to."
"An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves."
"New Year's Day now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual."
"Many people look forward to the New Year for a new start on old habits."
"May all your troubles last as long as your New Year's resolutions!"
Ha! I loved the Adams Family! Now onto a message from your boss, probably.
Happy New Year, everybody! See you on Monday! -joe puglisi
