Happy frickin' New Years! I know I should have posted this earlier but I was busy nursing injured horses back to health using tasteful shredding solos.



Let's hear some of your resolutions.

Happy New Year!!! :-D

Vamauros said...

Happy frickin' New Years to you too!

The poor horses...it's wonderful that you were there to heal them :)

CorrosiveDreams said...

My resolution is the one everybody sets out to do and fails at 2 months in: lose weight/ go to the gym often.

BUT! I promised myself that if I lose my goal, I will go to all of your western USA shows this summer. So I hope you do another US CL tour! Or I'll just have to go on my road trip during the Bright Black Heaven tour!

Glass Spider Webs said...

The basement horse can't hold his liquor. That is why he shouldn't drink.

Can't wait for the beautiful thieves video. Have a wonderful 2010.

I've already failed my resolution to sleep like a normal person...

Happy frickin' New Years to you too.
That's what I usually do on New Years too, except I play my ukulele.

My biggest resolution is not to fail grad school.

I plan to actually take care of myself. I'm also going to save the $30 dollars I spend every month on cigarettes and donate it to something different each time instead.

Kera said...

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!! Hope you all had a great day/night/whatever you did. lol

Let's see... my only real resolutions are to be a better person and lose weight. XD Two of the most generic resolutions ever.

one who posted no more cussing said...

not to ditch people?

Hi Jade! Happy frickin' New Years to you too! I just fnished putting a caption for all 135 of my AFI pictures. Took a while! How are you? I went to Hot Topic the other day to look for some AFI stuff but they didn't have it- didn't think they would. My New Years resolution is to get my hair done similar to how yours was in 2006. I am doing the highlight thing the same way, but since I'm a girl, I'm having my hair cut to the middle of my back (It's down to my freaking waist!). Tomorrow at 11:00am. Then I have to go to a family party... great...
Got a question- Do you still like pink and if you do, what shade? I've got more questions to ask you then they ask Britney Spears! Don't want to bug you, but I look up to you and the rest of AFI. But mostly you.
Keep replying to any annoying questions you can reply to!
Your friend Emma Jewel
(Geez, I write alot!!!!!! :-D )

Hannnnah said...

Haha, wow.
Mine is basically something I want to do, sometime this new year,
See AFI, & Get to hug you. Woo!
Come to Michigan, again! ;D

VELVET BURNS said...

I resolve to see every AFI show within my reach!!!

VELVET BURNS said...

I resolve to see every AFI show within my reach, next up the Phoenix!! Happy New Year, Jade!

Jeremy said...

Pour out more majestic solos, fight more ninjas, tame some more tigers, you know, standard new year resolutions.

Lori said...

My only resolution is to make more people happy.

Kristen said...

What does that even mean, Jade?
Haha, Happy News Years to you too!

Dorakalicious said...

Lose weight
and practice guitar more.
Peace :P

Kit said...

I have resolved not to have a resolution. Which is a self-defeating statement, so I've failed already.

SALLYANDELLENLOL said...

Such a saint.
New Year's resolutions originated from farmers "starting the year off right" by returning borrowed farm equiptment. So in keeping with tradition, that's what I'm doing.

KittyKouture said...

My New Years Resolution is "No Vegan Baked Goods Until Valentine's Day!" I've got a bit of holiday weight to shed. :P
ps- Hey Jade, how was the vegan carrot cake that I gave to you guys in Ft. Lauderdale, FL (Nov. 18th)? I hope it turned out okay! Hope your birthday and holidays were great! :)

Rebecca Baxter said...

My resolution is to just make 2010 better than 2009. 2009 sucked for me, a lot (cancer, school, family, crap).

ALSO, my resolution is to go to as many shows as possible, at least two of which will be AFI in january.

goodbyes4good(DF) said...

And hopefully a happy and healthy new decade for u too!!!
Hmmm new yrs resolutions??? I'm gonna try to be better person... Just have to say love love love crash love! That shouldn't suprise u at all. Hope to see u guys back at either Starland Ballroom or Scranton Cultural center b4 this tour is done ; /

endless love and respect

Panda Pooper said...

to stay vegan! i switched from vegetarian to vegan four days ago.

Anonymous said...

(1) Run a half marathon after all this ridiculous training.
(2) Stop falling asleep in legal contracts classes.

lezah said...

My resolution: To make a resolution that I will actually keep to. As of yet, it's failing. Which is why I usually don't bother making new year's resolutions, because I suck at it.

Would going to heaps of gigs and being happy count as a resolution?

Painting Roses White said...

My resolution is to stop being such a pushover. Also I want to finally finish House of Leaves and maybe even get an A on a math test for the first time EVER. The latter is unlikely seeing as I'll actually have to study to accomplish it.

You went to college- any studying tipis/advice? What's your resolution this year?

Dustin said...

Be Vegetarian. Happy New Year.

folkedforlife said...

Hugs and high-fives for everyone.

Lauren Sekela said...

Happy New Years to you too, Jade! My new years resolution is to become a better person in general and to finally come to one of AFI's concerts! What is yours?

Emily said...

1. To replace all of my mother's towels that I ruined with hair bleach.

2. Spend less money on bleach.

3. Get a car.

LynellMarie said...

To see more AFI shows. (I'm already saving up.)

Karlye said...

Happy New Years to you too sir! I'm sure you were able to nurse many horses back to health then, right?

I'm not one to make resolutions, but I suppose I have one goal/resolution that I would like to achieve this year. After 17 years of not playing or participating in any sort of extracurricular sport (that one season of soccer as a 7 year old doesn't count, to me at least), I am going to do Track and Field. There is definitely some major intimidation there, most of the Juniors going out for Track have been doing it all throughout high school, I'm going to be the intruding Photo kid. But I'm kind of looking forward to it ya know? :)

@RockRadioDJ said...

My resolution is to do more postitive things for others. In th middle of last year, 2009, I put together a benefit show for Chi, bassist for deftones, at the Phoenix theater. I have been a part of things like that plenty of time, but never have I been the one to organize such an event. Much like AFI, deftones have been a big part in the development of my sence of community when I was growing up. I feel I'm finally in a postion to Make some things happen and hope to make this year rich with many moments like the Chi benefit, to benefit my community and for the joy of doing so:)

Liaautumn said...

My new years resolution is to keep my old primaryschool friends because I've realised how much they mean to me now that we go to different schools.

:)
Happy new years Jade.

Grocery Girl said...

my resolution is to not make any resolutions this year since i never keep them anyway. except now i don't know if i'm succeeding or if i already broke it. *ponders*

emie said...

zahid said...

happy new year too....hope 2010 will be a lucky year for you

michelle. said...

happy new year.
I don't have a resolution though.

Eryn said...

Happy New Year!

As for my resolutions- I left home a couple of months ago and since then I haven't done any writing or taken one single picture so I'd like to get back into that. I also said that I didn't want to get below 80% in any of my work at university but that's never going to happen!

But it's not fair to ask for our resolutions without telling us any of yours! Got any interesting ones?

cilliii said...

happy new year!!!

my resolution: apologizing to everyone i ever hurt.

what's yours??

Under Saturns Shadow said...

Happy New Year to you too!
My resolution this year is to be an awesome student teacher and to get an actual teaching job.

helen099 said...

HAPPY 2010, JADE!
i hope you'll float all year on a cloud of happiness and love. (i must be in a hippie mood.)

my new year's resolution is to go see this little band i heard about called blaqk audio. (this is the only resolution i think i'll be able to keep!)

did you make a resolution? if it was to Be Awesome, that should be no sweat.

♥♥

C'est Moi. said...

My resolution is to stop worrying about making everyone else happy and focus on making myself happy.

Hope your 2010 is fantastic!

namedannette said...

Happy New Years! Resolutions include increasing my wit, continuing to do my best and maybe become asian. The last one is on the fence.

Stallion Duck said...

To start up a band...that's kind of hard here:)no one likes much of the music I do...punk and country just don't go hand-in-hand.

Scene Queen said...

Man I read this at like 3am last night but I was like too lazy to post, and like no one commented yet. I didn't want to be the only Noob to do so; so I didn't but my new years resolutions are too long to fit on your blog so Ill just sum it up in a few words Better My Self any way you can click my name to read my post and read the um essay I wrote about what I plan to do in 2010 (if you want)

Dom said...

My resolution is to practice the crash love tab that my fav guitarist posts to me everyday until i own that song =)

Kira Loup (DF) said...

I almost never spam your blog with comments, but maybe if I write my resolutions here (where people can see them) I'll actually keep them.

1. Eat better (generic)
2. Exercise (generic)
3. Learn to drive
4. Kick ass in college algebra (and my other classes)
5. Create more art/music/ stories for myself and not for school
6. Finish my costumes for all my nerdy anime conventions this year (woo I'm lame)
7. Be happy

That's it. Happy New Years to Jade and any random AFI fans that read this comment! :)

Erica said...

Maintain my sobriety. I have abstained from alcohol since 01/26/09
Also continue to follow a vegetarian diet. I had a few slip-ups last year
(I discovered French Onion soup is not vegetable based, ooops!)

Anonymous said...

my resolution kinda relies on others its to see an AFI show in the UK where nobody appears ready to kill-that includes Fritch(he's scary miserable) and Smith(scary but amusing when mad), also Davey doesn't arrive damaged or get broken during the show. (Hmm think I may have spent too much time over the years watching your guys play)
Have a good year kid

Hannah Quigley said...

Jude said...

My resolution is to be as good-looking as you.

No joke.

aydas94 said...

Happy(belated)New Years, Jade! I hope you had a good one.
Well, for my new year's resolutions, I stop eating a specific food. Its been 2 years since I've soda. It's been 1 year since I've had potato chips. And this year, my new year's resolution is to not eat cookies! I know, I'm crazy haha. :)

kirstie said...

Lol. Happy New Year's to you too! I have no resolution...no one ever keeps them anyways. Sigh. Sorry :(

Happy New Year!!!
My New Year's resolution is try not to gross people out with the way I eat ketchup.

And to make sure that Russia and Sweden play against each other in the Junior Hockey championships so that they get into a huge hockey fight before anyone scores and thn they're too tired to do anything more than skate to the penalty box. This will make Russia forfeit the game and play against Canada, in which they gett their asses kicked.

Happy Frickin'(late) New Year To You Too Jade!!!!
Keep shreding those solos save basement horse! And I have yet to think of a New Years Resolution... I am ashamed... I would however like to hear yours though....

-Kylie^_^

Jordan said...

I think horses should be incorporated in the next AFI video. It's pretty much standard that all 7-11 year old girls go through either a horses or a dolphins phase. I'm sure this rings true for every member of AFI as well.

Do you care to pick? Horses v. Dolphins???

My resolution: Learn to drive a stick and perfect my finger tapping skillz. Obviously, I'll be performing both at the same time.

Pinkii said...

Resolutions??
-Gain weight! That way, failing won't be so bad. Plus, major foot surgery equals inevitable weight gain.
AND [On the subject of foot surgery]
-Color every inch of my future cast. =]

Learn to play drums and/or piano.(Guitar is much too hard!)
Learn to program.
Eat more fruits and vegetables.
Quit letting people give me guilt trips.
Read more.
And..... Meet you at a BlaqkAudio CD signing.
That's it for now. Check back next year and see how I did. :P

Lynn Aquaheart said...

I have resolved to make this year the year of "More." As in I will make more art, I will make more music, I will live more life in general. Happy new year to you too!

NoiseElectric said...

Happy friggin' New Year, Jade.

Resolutions...meh. All they really do is set us up for disappointment, so I don't really have any. At least none worth mentioning.

That said, there are a few things I absolutely MUST do this year...
1. find a new job, 2. oral surgery, 3. see Echo & The Bunnymen when they come back to the US.

Hope 2010 is bright for you, brudda.

Emme said...

My new years resolution is that I've started a journal, and I'm going to write in it every night about my day. And I'm going to keep doing this throughout highschool. I'm only a freshman currently, so I'm sure there'll be some preetttty interesting stuff by the time I'm graduating. (:

Kyra said...

Last year, I did a lot of "God dammit!" and "Jesus Christ!", and "Oh my God!", and " For the love of God!" and, "Holy Jesus!!" So I'm not going to do that anymore because it's part of the ten commandments. Or, it's one of the commandments NOT to do that.

Sorry, God.

I find new year's resolutions unrealistic and unattainable.

My goal is to get my master's degree in political science/urban planning this June, and not to recede in the grades department.

It's not a resolution but it's in the same principle.

I go to Michigan State U.,if you were wondering where I attend college.
