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.

Phillip RetutaUntitled

I’ve been listening to a lot of indie/indie dance/electro punk music: Hot Chip, The Rapture, MGMT, Of Montreal, LCD Soundsystem, !!!, Junior Boys, Justice, Crystal Castles, Girl Talk, The Go! Team, etc (throw in a select track or remix by Radiohead, The Clash, or Broken Social Scene). I want to be the guy wearing the big-ass headphones at some small house/apartment party, spinning vinyl, and playing otherwise unfamiliar music (at least “unfamiliar” in the sense of your typical club/bar deep in the city) to indie kids who’ll say, “Hey! You’re playing Blur’s ‘Boys and Girls!’ RAD!”

In essence, I want to DJ a party or venue and have someone appreciate a few of my favorite songs. 6 years ago


DJStrokyFirst (mainly) hip hop djing

One of my good friends asked me to DJ and also managed to convince me that I should play mostly hip hop songs. Now I don’t usually listen to hip hop because I like techno. But, he checked out a bunch of stuff from the library and I burned two cds of some really popular songs I vaguely remember hearing on the radio and at other parties.

I began playing some D12 which actually offended a lot of the guests because of the language in the song and the fact that almost all, no entirely all, of the party guests were Christians. Well anyways, I kept playing hip hop for about 2 or 3 hours straight and by then nobody really was listening to the lyrics except on the songs everyone knows.

But good golly, where can I find a popular hip hop song that isn’t explicit in terms of the general message of the song? Seriously. This is another reason I like techno so much is that I don’t have to take in all the crap that is discussed in nearly all hip hop songs. 6 years ago
