Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Under the influence of a good friend, I've decided that when I want to do something, I'll actually do it. It would be a shame to say, "Oh, I wish I had ...X" when you're old.

So, trusty forumites, what do you want to do before you die, and when do you plan to do it?

My own top ten:
1. Learn American history (already starting, with Eric Foner and so on.)
2. Learn Latin (I’ll start when I get my first acceptance letter of some kind and the stress eases.)
3. Learn Talmud (Starts Monday!!!)
4. Camp outside (how the hell will this EVER happen?)
5. Spend time volunteering for real (possibly this summer.)
6. Learn to shoot a gun. (Gotta wait till I meet a gunny person or make money.)
7. Climb a mountain. (see #4.)
8. Go to Gettysburg or Lexington & Concord. (see #4.)
9. Become a good amateur powerlifter. (Will take a couple years but I’m doing the right things.)
10. Go to Burning Man. (I really don’t know what I could contribute since I’m not an artist; this is the dreamiest of the dreams.)

    a partial list of mine

    1) see the aurora borealis
    2) meet the president or a former president, have an indepth discussion about something
    3) deliver a baby in an emergency situation, like stuck in an elevator or something, be a hero
    4) punch a bad boss in the face
    5) see the giant big heads in the easter islands
    6) hang out with penguins in antarctica
    7) get a masters in library science
    8) be anthony bourdain's sidekick for one of his travel trips
    9) learn to speak chinese
    10) pilot a plane

    a lot of these involve travel, which money and lazyness is preventing me from doing in the near future. maybe when i get older, hopefully.

    I am determined to see the Aurora before I die.

    I truly hope that I will be able to walk on mars and celebrate 500th birthday

    i can't set an eta on killing somebody, gotta do that in the moment

    as for the punching someone to cheers, there's a human resources chick that's gonna meet the business end of my jerkin' hand

    everything else'll come after i get a job. once i get money i stick to something, despite the horrible consequences, as many of my former roommates can attest

    yes

    makes a bunch of sense when you think about it

    "night vision" equipment is most accurately described as "light amplification"

    there are lots and lots and lots of stars in the sky that are too dull to see with the naked eye.

    Being far out and away from city lights, best on a night near a new moon, the sky will already seem to be packed full of stars

    put on night vision

    the amount of stars triples at least, plus you'll see the swirls and splotches of neighboring galaxies

    it's amazing

    first night doing field work in Korea

    started to wake up on my own, wondering "Why does it feel like I'm moving?"

    opened my eyes, shook my head a bit to finish snapping myself awake

    sleeping bag was sliding down the side of the hill

    Here's my little list

    1. Have my art displayed in a gallery
    2. Visit Germany, Russia, Italy, Spain and Canada
    3. Learn to play the guitar and hopefully play in a band
    4. Publish one piece of writing
    5. Build a snowman
    6. Get married and have kids when I meet that special someone
    7. Maybe teach
    8. Learn Chinese

    So far it seems #3 and 8 will happen first while at the moment I've started entering more art competitions to make #1 come true.

    fuck those competitions.

    here's how to get your art displayed in a gallery

    step 1: come up with an idea for an exhibition. It's best if it follows a theme.

    step 2: find a few independant art spaces in your capital city. Look in the yellow pages or online, there should be maybe a dozen or more.

    step 3: call a few of them, tell them you want to exhibit, explain the theme, discuss their comission

    step 4: Book a time for the show, call all your friends, buy a bunch of beer and wine and fancy snacks and have a bitchin opening night

    EASY.
    You don't have to be some amazing artist to book an exhibition, you just have to book it.
