Yeah, it’s the last day of the year, so I guess it’s about time to sum it up. I wrote about 200 entries last year, not that much considering the fact that the year had a lot more than 200 days, but I like to pretend I do have a live outside of the internet. I’ve gone through the archives and it looks like 2004 was the year I (in no particular order)

  • Started the 52 Albums or Burn-project, inspired by Jason Kottke’s 52 magazines or bust-project. Unfortunately, I gave up after 3 albums. Let’s hope Jason had more luck with his magazine reading.
  • Bought a lot of computer books I didn’t read.
  • Started collecting South Park, The Simpsons and Futurama episodes.
  • Discovered yet another favourite band; Chronic Future.
  • Re-discovered Porcupine Tree.
  • Got dumped by Stine.
  • Dated some girls without much success.
  • Had to take an IQ-test on a job interview, but didn’t get the job.
  • Got kicked out of my apartment.
  • Moved into a new apartment with five - but surprisingly sane - people.
  • Got a lot of hits from people looking for Janet Jackson’s nipple.
  • Listened to radio.wazee a lot.
  • Started my own firm with Ola and Espen.
  • Finally got myself an Xbox.
  • Cried three times.
  • Spent a lot of time in Trondheim.
  • Moved the site to Segment Publishing because my other host sucked monkey balls.
  • Worked a lot.
  • Went to London three times. Or maybe it was more, I really can’t remember.
  • Bought a new mobile phone.
  • Strained my left ankle really, really bad.
  • Got a lot of hits from people searching for “hot chicks” on Yahoo! image search.
  • Starting playing RISK - the board game, that is.
  • Bought a Canon EOS 300D.
  • Ate a lot of pizza.
  • Tried to subscribe to Wired, but didn’t succeed.
  • Had my first real lap dance. But I wasn’t the one paying for it. It wasn’t exactly that much fun.
  • Had sex just to have sex. That wasn’t exactly that much fun, either.
  • Bought a new bike because my old one got messed up real bad. Also got a bicycle helmet that I actually use.
  • Started jogging and exercising semi-regularly again.
  • Made a few mix tapes for people who really didn’t like them. Kids today…
  • Got a picture published in a magazine.
  • Had a severe hard drive crash and lost all my data, more or less.
  • Went less to the movies than I really wanted.
  • Thought I was going to die.

All in all, I guess the year wasn’t that bad, I don’t live in Baghdad, for instance. Although I don’t feel I really achieved anything noteworthy. I’m looking forward to 2005 with the hope that it’ll be even better.

A happy new year to you, too!
