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.

Saw "Edge of Tomorrow"

Edge of Tomorrow: An officer finds himself caught in a time loop in a war with an alien race. His skills increase as he faces the same brutal combat scenarios, and his union with a Special Forces warrior gets him closer and closer to defeating the enemy.

with Tom Cruise & Emily Blunt. Not too bad, not too great either—but a decent bit of scifi mind candy if you are willing to lower your expectations.



Watched "The Grand Budapest Hotel"

The Grand Budapest Hotel: The adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend.

A surprisingly fun and deep romp, with a huge array of celebrities in the case; it was not what I was expecting and I enjoyed it.



Watched 2008's "Doomsday"

Doomsday: A futuristic action thriller where a team of people work to prevent a disaster threatening the future of the human race.



Watched the 2014 version of "Robocop"

Robocop: In 2028 Detroit, when Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) – a loving husband, father and good cop – is critically injured in the line of duty, the multinational conglomerate OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer.



Watched "Official Denial"

Official Denial: A man who claims to have been abducted by aliens is also abducted by a top secret government agency, the Majestic Group, who want him to attempt to communicate with the only surviving alien from a UFO shot down by the Air Force. Telepathically, the alien tells him it must be returned to its ship, where it will reveal a secret vital to the future of the planet.

Kinda hokey, very scifi-tv-movie of the week kind of feel to it.



Watched "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit"

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit:

Jack Ryan, as a young covert CIA analyst, uncovers a Russian plot to crash the U.S. economy with a terrorist attack.

Starring Chris Pine as Jack Ryan and Keira Knightly as his fiancée. A bit better than I was expecting; not a bad way to spend the evening.



Watched "Mindhunters"

Mindhunters: Trainees in the FBI’s psychological profiling program must put their training into practice when they discover a killer in their midst.



Watched "Scooby Doo"

Scooby-Doo: After an acrimonious break up, the Mystery Inc. gang are individually brought to an island resort to investigate strange goings on.

What a waste of time. I guess I really don’t enjoy slapstick style comedy. I didn’t enjoy the Scooby gang much as a child, still don’t enjoy it. Oh well.



Watched "White House Down"

White House Down: A Secret Service agent is tasked with saving the life of the U.S. President after the White House is overtaken by a paramilitary group.

Hella bunch of explosions, as to be expected for an Emmerich film. I found that if I suspended my belief quite a bit, parts of it were fairly enjoyable, more so than I expected.



Watched "Divergent"

Divergent: In a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris learns she’s Divergent and won’t fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four must find out what makes Divergents dangerous before it’s too late.

Watched this based on the recommendation of a good friend. Not too bad, not that great, but worth a watch.
