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.

17. 101 Dalmatians

I’m really making some progress here with these reviews.

I enjoyed this movie, mostly because of its cuteness. All those puppies! I remember I asked for this movie on VCR when I was about 10 and it must’ve been my favourite present that year, although I didn’t watch it that frequently after that. I think I wasn’t as drawn in as other movies because there isn’t a strong soundtrack, but I do enjoy the characters. I liked in the beginning scene when Pongo is browsing for a mate for Roger and all of the women and their dog look alike. And also how the animals refer to their owners as “pets”. Classic.

The sketching style of the movie is well done and I was reading today that the dogs’ spots are done by Xeroxing so that was interesting. I also read that after the flop of “Sleeping Beauty” this movie was on a tight budget and it revived Disney’s animation department after its release. I definitely think this had a far stronger storyline and enjoyment factor than “Sleeping Beauty”.

And OMG! Is Cruella de Vill the evilest Disney villain or what?! Imagine skinning puppies to make a coat! What a bitch!

I’m going to give “101 Dalmatians” 3 out of 5 Mickey Ears.

16. Sleeping Beauty

This was the first time I’d seen “Sleeping Beauty” and ironically, I ended up falling asleep towards the end. I wasn’t overly impressed with this movie. I thought Maleficent’s reaction to not being invited to a party was a bit unjustified. There was really only one strong song in the movie, which was the duet between Aurora and Phillip. It was catchy but not as impressive as soundtracks for other Disney movies.

The fairies were cute and more or less entertaining.

I just dunno, it wasn’t a standout for me. I give it 2 out of 5 Mickey Ears.

53. Frozen

OMG. Is this movie amazing or what? I’d seen heaps of stuff online about “Frozen” but hadn’t really thought much about watching it. My friend then recommended I see it and I’m so glad I took the time to watch it. I loved it! Especially the soundtrack. I thought “Let it go” was so empowering and positive. And I love “Do you want to build a snowman?” and how it showed the progression of time.

Obviously, being one of the newest releases by Disney, the graphics were excellent and I was particularly impressed with how real the ice looked in the opening scene.

The story was impressive too, because it wasn’t the standard Disney princess finding Prince Charming. It was about a bond between sisters. And also about finding out who you are, which was also a theme in “The Lion King”. Apparently “Frozen” is the highest grossing Disney movie of all time! I can understand why.

No surprises, based on my raving review, “Frozen” gets 5 out of 5 Mickey Ears.
