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.

SammieGhost in the Shell

This was actually a rewatch – one of my absolute faves! 8 years ago

SammieMy Neighbour Totoro

As with Spirited Away, I didn’t find this one as compelling watching as the others. It was very cute and fun though. 8 years ago

SammieSpirited Away

I wasn’t as drawn to this one as I was to the other movies so far. It was enjoyable to watch, but didn’t really leap out and grab me.

Eight movies down and only two to go though. 9 years ago

SammieGrave of the Fireflies

A very touching story. It highlights the other side of war. I don’t think I have ever seen a more emotionally moving piece of animation. 9 years ago

SammiePrincess Mononoke

A really cool story, very different from the high-tech anime I usually watch.

Set during the Muromachi Period (1333-1568) of Japan, Mononoke Hime is a story about a mystic fight between the Animal Gods of the forest and humans.

On the side of the Animal Gods is San (Mononoke Hime), a human girl raised by the wolf god Moro. On the side of the humans is Lady Eboshi, building a kingdom for oppressed people by cutting down the forest for her iron-making operation.

In the middle of this fierce fighting for survival, Ashitaka, an Emishi boy, struggles to find a way for both sides to co-exist. But the fighting just becomes more and more bloody and all hope seems to be lost… ” 9 years ago

SammiePerfect Blue

Wow! This one had me all the way to the end. Loved it :) Five down, five to go – the halfway mark. 9 years ago

SammieCowboy Bebop

Wierdest thing – I entered this goal into 43 Things yesterday. This evening I came home and switched the telly on, looking for a movie for us to watch tonight. There on World Movies, starting in exactly 1 minutes time, was Cowboy Bebop. Needless to say, I dropped everything and watched the whole thing.

Four down, six to go. 9 years ago

SammieBlood: The Last Vampire

It’s a vampire theme, so of course I’ve seen this one ;-)

Great movie. I borrowed the DVD out and ended up watching it a few times in a row.

Three down, seven to go. 9 years ago

SammieNinja Scroll

Have also seen Ninja Scroll a number of times, thanks to SBS!

Two down, eight to go. 9 years ago


Have seen this film numerous times. It was the one that first ignited my interest in the whole anime genre.

One down, nine to go. 9 years ago
