Yes - I love this topic - I'm the culprit for the 2006 and 2007 versions of this thread...
really glad you fired up a new one!
Once and for all - I'm buying a new soundcard and recording again. Recording again has been my plan for about 4 years now (if you could still see the old threads, you'd laugh...)... This is the year!
Heidi and I have already talked about getting a new soundcard since my Aardvark is tied to Win98 - and I don't feel like trying to get it to work in XP. I might still use the old computer for a drum machine - we'll see. I have a goal of writing a few songs this year and maybe, just maybe, getting a release ready to send out as a demo.
We've already moved a large chair out of my studio and half of my bass amp is in next to my synths for the first time in 5 years (the other half of the amp is at my mother-in-laws - we had a great jam session on New Years Eve...
it's coming home soon...). I'm toying with getting a new effects box as a present to myself, and Heidi thinks I should buy a decent guitar. I'm definitely getting the sound card - we'll see about the rest.
Beyond music my goal is to continue getting healthier and losing weight. It was quite the weird year for my health last year. I think I'm on the right track now with regular exercise, eating right, vitamins, and regular doctor visits.
My wife and I have these sort of running resolutions to be...
* physically fit
* financially fit
* mentally fit
I've been working on those three for about 5 months now and things are looking a little better in the world.
Heidi and I plan to hike more - that's the biggie for us. I'm not an outdoor person, never have been. We went hiking once last fall and I loved it. We also bought bikes and I can't wait for the weather to clear up a bit to get out and ride! I'm riding indoors this winter to hopefully have the muscles built up to actually be able to go a decent distance next year.
