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.

OscoNoxhitting some switchez with my bitchez

There is a cliché in West Coast RAP out of the Old School, when rapper’s 64 Impalas are kitted up on hydraulic suspensions, they Hit tha switches.
The reason why I would like to complete this is I think I would be a real ass thing to do. Me, coming from a history of freestyle rapping with a bunch of amateurs. We are all rhyming off the top of the head. The depth of the thought process of these cats comes out after they get all of their compositions out of the way. Then they start to reach for some bull shit like hitting the switchez with their bitchez. And in my mind I’m all like, “you can’t rap about something you have never done.” But I can’t pass my standards off on a another man, so I just make a mental note to myself to never rap about some experiences I haven’t lived.
Rolling a six four on switches is pimp. Man, that is the ideal image of an early 90’s West Coast G. The chapter we O.G.’z aspire to be like. If you own a Chevy on Daytons and Vogues, you hot. You already know.
How could I not rap about that? I’ll bet a dub it would be the realist rapping in the spot. And if there were bitchez involved? Well then I guess I just got back from hitting the switches with my bitches. 3 years ago
