Everyone here at Big Dave and Company sincerely hopes that everyone had a safe and enjoyable celebration of the New Year, and we wish everyone nothing but health, happiness, and success in the New Year. Now that all that stuff is out of the way, let's make some resolutions for 2011.
1.) Be nicer to the Unpaid Interns. Okay, that is not going to happen, really. I mean, they are unpaid college interns, I am not supposed to be that nice to them. They haven't earned anything yet, they are here to get me coffee, cart around my dry cleaning, be used as an emergency ottoman when my feets get tired, do mind-numbing amounts of research, and write my posts for me. I am not going to be nice to them. I do think that I am going to get them all beds though - bunkbeds - and maybe some blankets too because OSHA and the Ninth District Court said I can't use those old rusty metal cages anymore.
2.) Write More Posts. Yeah, I have gotten into a nasty habit of missing and/or skipping days and not bringing you anything, which is unacceptable, even though you probably prefer it when you don't have to read the dribble that I have been spitting out. Anyway, I want to clean up those days I have been missing to make sure that we come closer to the 365 mark at the end of the year. That being said, even the most dedicated of us need a day off here and there so don't expect something every single day.
3.) Write Better Posts. Yeah, we are all our worst critic, and I can tell you that I haven't always been thrilled with the quality of the stuff I have been posting as of late. Part of that is because quality is sometimes sacrificed in the name of quantity (see Number 2 above) but there really is no excuse. That means less regurgitated news and less of me being like a lame college freshman on the Quad playing my guitar and getting in touch with my feelings to get chicks. Nope, less reflection and more rage. Or at least more wit. You deserve that at least, Company.
4.) Better Tie Ins Across the Media Empire. Bottom line, we need to talk about the Blog on the Podcast more, and we need to talk about the Podcast more on the Blog. How about weekly writeups of what went down on the podcast? I think that's a good idea too. And that is just the start of things. And yes, I did throw it out there that we have a media empire.
6.) More pictures. They really spice things up, and to be quite frank I am not sure you can read anyway, Company. So pictures will be used more to compliment what is going on around here. Plus, pictures are hilarious and so are their captions, and isn't that what life and Big Dave and Company is all about, the hilarity? I always thought so.
7.) Bail Officer Butt Hanson Out of Jail. As you may have notices, there are a lot fewer Safety Tips of the Week from Officer Butt Hanson lately. They have actually been more like Safety Tips of the Month. That is because our hero of public service was put in jail for not taking a bribe on the streets. Actually, he was put in jail for not wearing pants while not taking a bribe in public, but let's not split hairs. He is still in there and he only gets a limited amount of contact with the outside world, and most of that is with Firefighter Dik Manchorp, so we haven't had a lot of safety tips. Once we get him out they will start up again.
8.) Get Back to the Themes and Special Promotions. Something to break up the monotony. Remember the Alphabetic posts? Those were cool. We need more cool stuff. Please send you suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
