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.

TygrlandStep Up 3D

My sisters and I went to see Step Up 3D a couple of weeks ago.

Whilst it wasn’t a ‘great’ movie, we certainly had a great time watching it.

The dance routines are simply amazing. A couple of times my sisters and I looked across at each other and said, man I wish I could rewind that!

We are thinking about going to see it again. If we can find the time before it finishes.

I thought the 3D effects were interesting enough, but I am not sure that it really adds that much to the experience. Also, occasionally it made the dancers arms look freakishly long (not sure what that was about).

Anyway, we loved. 4 years ago

Tygrland80's movie night...

My sister T and I had an 80’s movie night this weekend. We watched:

The Gremlins – much funnier than I remembered.
The Goonies
Footloose – awesome!

Not great movies – but loads of fun! 4 years ago

TygrlandTWO: Meet Me in St Louis (Vincente Minnelli) 1944

What a charming movie! I didn’t expect to enjoy this movie as much as I did as I am not really a fan of musicals. So, St Louis came as a bit of a surprise. The movie has a fantastic score and the songs blend seamlessly with the story, weaving from one season to the next. Autumn is a highlight. Perfection! 4 years ago

TygrlandThe Matrix (Wachowski) 1999

I watched the Matrix again last night. As action/sci-fi movies go, this is a pretty good one. The film poses an interesting question – would you choose the truth, even if you knew it was going to be painful, or would you choose to remain in blissful ingnorance?

I’d take the red pill.

TygrlandMadea's Family Reunion (dir: Tyler Perry 2006)

This is not a great movie, but it sure is a lot of fun and has heaps of heart.

I really enjoyed it. 4 years ago

TygrlandMarathon Man (dir: John Schlesinger 1976)

I was on the edge of my seat watching this movie and in one paticular scene, sat watching the screen through my fingers.

I find the look and feel of many seventies movies appealing. I love the fashion, the cars and the muted, often dark colours. The sets and the actors feel real – I like the lack of gloss and polish. 4 years ago

TygrlandThe Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill.

Such a lovely little movie. 4 years ago

TygrlandONE: Avatar (dir: James Cameron 2009)

I saw James Cameron’s Avatar over the weekend and loved it! Such a great cast and story and the 3d creation of Pandora is truly beautiful. Sam Worthington is just fantastic in the lead role. 4 years ago

TygrlandSweeny Todd

My sisters and I went to see Sweeny Todd a couple of weekends ago. I really enjoyed the movie, I enjoyed hanging out with my sisters even more. The movie was visually striking, loved the dark, gloomy sets (i wouldn’t expect anything less from Tim Burton). That said, for me, it isn’t a great movie.

I read somewhere the other day that Tim Burton will be directing ‘The Fantastic Mr Fox’ in 2009. So excited! Mr Fox is my favourite childhood book and Tim Burton is a fantastic director. One to look forward to.
