Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

The Man With The Iron Fist

Not exactly an old Kung Fu movie, but very much inspired by old Kung Fu movies, The Man With The Iron Fist is a love letter to all of the old Kung Fu movies. It features the directing of RZA and a stand out performance by Russell Crowe. Cung Le and Lucy Liu do a great job as well. Nice movie, especially if you like Quentin Tarantino style films.



Heroes Of The East 中華丈夫

Heroes Of The East starring Gordon Liu and was directed by Lau Kar-Leung, is an amazing film for many reasons. One, it was one of the first films to pit Kung Fu vs Karate with dignity, without making the Japanese out to be mindless monsters. Second, it featured many Chinese weapons vs Japanese weapons, showcasing each of their beauty and strengths. One of my favorite Kung Fu movies of all time!



Yes, Madam 皇家師姐 AKA: Police Assassins

A classic east meets west cop duo team up, except the two cops happen to be female. Starring the amazing Michelle Yeoh and Cynthia Rothrock, this movie is well worth the watch. One of my favorite Rothrock early films, and its available on Youtube for free!



Films of Fury

Awesome Kung Fu documentary directed by Andrew Corvey and Andrew W. Robinson. Very funny and informative, it goes back to the early days of Kung Fu Cinema and brings you up to the present. As a Kung Fu geek it was great to see the classics I knew and was surprised to find out a lot of new information as well. Can’t recommend it enough, and its free on Netflix Streaming! Noah
