New Year's Resolutions 2018

2016 was pretty terrible. I'm not prepared to say 2017 was worse. I mean, a lot less famous people I admired died, I lost another friend but I'm getting older so I'm getting used to the idea that's going to happen more often. And I at least had the benefit of knowing that Trump was President instead of being blindsided in November.

But... this was a rough, rough year. I had one of the worst weeks of my life this year. The political situation was horrifying and exhausting. Expect the worst became the norm.

Silver linings? Yeah. A couple are mine, private things. But I made several really close new friendships and a lot more extended friendships. We expanded my store into a new location in June, which was exhausting and scary and resulted in some debt I'm still a little worried about but overall has been really rewarding. And this was my second year cancer-free.

Time for 2018 resolutions, and time to check in on last year.

Last year's resolutions:

1. Cook More - I tried out several new recipes, although I didn't have many that stuck.

2. Exercise - Nope. Failed again.

3. No Cancer - This one I got.

By The Numbers:

1. I read almost 600 single-issue comics this year, as compared to about 700 the year before, and 52 graphic novels, which is less than the year before.

2. I ate at 93 different restaurants this year. On average, I ate out about 27 times a month, which is more than last year.

3. I played 35 new boardgames.

This Year's Food Plans:

Places I Need to Try:
Freedmen's BBQ
Leroy & Lewis BBQ
Rolling Rooster Chicken & Waffles

Opening in January:
H-Mart at Lakeline

Early 2018:
Tumble 22 Brick and Mortar
Anthem on Rainey Street

Sometime in 2018:
Loro (Asian Smokehouse from Uchi/Aaron Franklin)
24 Diner (Rock Rose)
Easy Tiger (The Linc)

This Year's Resolutions & Goals:

1. Cook More - I need to add some new recipes in. Specifically, I need to learn to use the Instant Pot. I'm going to try to make at least one new Instant Pot recipe a week until that inevitably falls off and I scale back to once a month.

2. Read More - I utterly failed at reading books and graphic novels this year. So my goal is an achievable 48 graphic novels and novels combined. One a week.

3. First Game Con. This one's easy, I already have tickets to BGG Con in May.

4. Boardgames. My plan this year is to play 25 new boardgames. I've exceeded that the past two years.

5. Write More. I have a notebook with 300 Writing Prompts. It's meant as a kind of journal, but I'm going to write it from the POV of fictional characters. If I skip 65 days in there, I'll still fill the notebook. The plan is to aim for every day. The looser plan is to slowly build up a universe in which to tell stories, and if that works, I might do Nanowrimo in that universe. Probably next year. Maybe this year. Depends how ambitious I'm feeling.

            Best of 2017 - Movies

            Or, more accurately, a list of all the movies I saw in 2017. Because I can't claim best, my movie taste is pretty basic and I only see a handful of movies every year.

            New Movies I Saw This Year:

            1. The Big Sick
            2. Get Out
            3. Coco

            1. Moana
            2. Arrival

            19. X-Men Apocalypse

            Best of 2017 - Comic Miniseries and One-Shots

            Last year, I had four Marvel series, and Civil War II and its spinoffs narrowly missed the cut. This year, Secret Empire made the cut, there were two other Marvel miniseries (although one was an ongoing series that was canceled and the other a series of one shots), and an IDW and an IDW/DC crossover both based on licensed properties. So the real miniseries winner this year was Image, with five original miniseries, only one based on an extant story (even that a Greek myth) and three of which were by new (or relatively new) writers. Plus Greg Rucka is on there twice, because Greg Rucka is pretty awesome. 

            Best Miniseries:
            1. Star Trek TNG Mirror Broken #1-5 (IDW)
            2. God Country #1-6 (Image)
            3. Generations (Marvel)
            4. Unstoppable Wasp #1-8 (Marvel)
            5. Shirtless Bear-Fighter #1-6 (Image)
            6. Secret Empire #0-10 (Marvel)
            7. Sherlock Frankenstein & The Legion of Evil #1-3 (Dark Horse)
            8. Batman TMNT Adventures #3-6 (DC/IDW)
            9. Lazarus X+66 #1-5 (Image)
            10. Old Guard #1-6 (Image)
            Also in the running: Kingpin #1-5 and Bullseye #1-5 (Marvel), Britannia We Who Are About to Die #1-4 and Savage #3-4 (Valiant), Disney Pirates of the Caribbean #3-5, Reborn #4-6 (Image), Kill the Minotaur #1-5 (Image), and Serenity No Power in the Verse #4-6 (Dark Horse).

            Last year I read about 100 first issues and one shots, this year it was closer to 40-50, but I still found a lot to like. In some cases, I dropped off a series or miniseries but still had warm feelings toward the first issue.

            Best First Issues:*
            1. X-Men Prime #1 (Marvel)
            2. Sherlock Frankenstein & Legion of Evil #1 (Dark Horse)
            3. TMNT Usagi Yojimbo #1 (Dark Horse)
            4. Justice League Power Rangers #1 (DC/Boom!)
            5. Ninja-K #1 (Valiant)
            6. Batman Creature of the Night #1 (DC)
            7. Punisher The Platoon #1 (Marvel)
            8. Punisher #218 (Marvel)
            9. Doomsday Clock #1 (DC)
            10. Elsewhere #1 (Image)
            *Caveat: I didn't include any of the first issues from my Top 10 new series. So you can consider this really the bottom of a Top 20 list if you want.

            Those that almost but didn't quite make the top 10 include: Calexit #1 (Black Mask), Clue #1 (IDW), The Dregs #1 (Black Mask), Fence #1 (Boom), Gotham City Garage #1 (DC), Harley and Ivy Meet Betty and Veronica #1 (DC/Archie), Mass Effect Discovery #1 (Dark Horse), Slots #1 (Image), Spirits of Vengeance #1 (Marvel) and Nightwing The New Order #1 (DC).

            Best One-Shots:
            1. Batman Elmer Fudd #1
            2. Star Trek Deviations
            3. Marvel Legacy #1
            4. Secret Empire Uprising #1
            5. Klaus and the Crisis in X-Masville

            Best of 2017 - Top 10 New Comics

            Best New Series:
            Marvel has two of my top 10 (down from five last year), Image has five (up from two), DC has two.

            Four of them are superhero books, down from eight last year, although you could argue for Mage The Hero Denied as well. Rat Queens is humor/fantasy, the others are all harder to quantify. And while none of the books in my top 10 published 12 issues last year, this year X-Men Gold and Injustice 2 managed more than that.
            1. Runaways #1-4
            2. X-Men Gold #1-18
            3. Injustice 2 #1-16
            4. Rat Queens #1-Orc Dave Special
            5. Royal City #1-8
            6. Redneck #1-8
            7. Mage The Hero Denied #0-4
            8. Wild Storm #1-10
            9. Curse Words #1-9
            10. Crosswind #1-5

            New Series That Are Too New To Judge:
            These series are not quite far enough for me to judge them Best New Series yet, but I really like them all, and I can see any of them making my Best Continuing Series next year. Because I don't think it's fair to compare a single issue or a two- or three-issue run to the more extended runs above, I'm ranking these separately. Last year, none of these wound up on my list and there were about 12 of them. This year there were only 3 on the list. I hope 2018 has more to offer.
            1. Captain America #695-696
            2. Daredevil #595-596
            3. Ninja-k #1-2
            4. Doomsday Clock #1-2

              Best of 2017 - Top 10 Ongoing Comics

              In terms of ongoing favorites, there wasn't a lot of change this year. Half of them were on last year's favorites, the other half were on last year's favorite new series. There will be more change next year, as four of my favorite Marvel series (Amazing Spider-Man, Hawkeye, Sam Wilson, and Moon Knight) are either over, ending, or changing creative teams. These lists are my favorites, based on a reading almost 600 single issues for the year (last year it was closer to 500), and access to more than that.

              Last year, Image had 2 of my top 10, and Marvel had the other 8. This year, Marvel has 7, Image still has 2, and Dark Horse has 1. So for all the griping I see online about Marvel, I remain a fan of what they're doing, and I expect the changes under CB Cebulski to be good ones. 

              Last year, Amazing Spider-Man had 17 issues, but most of them didn't hit 12. This year, All-New Wolverine hit 12, Amazing Spider-Man hit more than that (with renumbering thrown in), and Hawkeye hit 11.
              1. Ms. Marvel #14-25 (Last Year: #1 on my Best Ongoing Series)
              2. Kill or Be Killed #5-14 (Last Year: #3 on my Best New Series)
              3. Champions #4-15 (Last Year: #4 on my Best New Series)
              4. All-New Wolverine #16-28 (Last Year: #5 on my Best Ongoing Series)
              5. Amazing Spider-Man #23-793 (Last Year: #4 on my Best Ongoing Series)
              6. Black Hammer Annual #1, #7-13 (Last Year: #7 on my Best New Series)
              7. Hawkeye #2-13
              8. Saga #42-48 (Last Year: #7 on my Best Ongoing Series)
              9. Captain America Sam Wilson #17-24 (Last Year: #2 on my Best Ongoing Series)
              10. Moon Knight #10-14 (Last Year: #5 on my Best New Series)
              Of the series in my Top 10, five of them (Ms. Marvel, All-New Wolverine, Amazing Spider-Man, Saga, Captain America Sam Wilson) were also in 2016's Best Ongoing Series (and Saga, Ms. Marvel, and Amazing Spider-Man were on my 2016 Ongoing Series too), and four of them (Kill or Be Killed, Champions, Black Hammer, Moon Knight) were in my Best New Series of 2016. Only one of them (Hawkeye) was too new to judge, with only one issue out last year.

              Also in the running: Captain America Steve Rogers #9-19, New Super Man #7-18, Thanos #3-12, Daredevil #15-27, Descender #18-24, Doctor Strange #16-24, and Motor Girl #3-6.

                                                                                Last year I ate out about 300 times. This year it was a little over 300.

                                                                                I'm not qualified to be a food critic, but I did eat a lot of food and I do have opinions. So here are my top 10 favorites, the ones that are accessible, affordable *and* delicious enough that I went there numerous times during the year. My list of favorites is mostly down to how many times I went there, with a little fudging.

                                                                                Favorites:

It's not just quality of food, here, but also closeness to work, where I'm usually eating lunch.

This list is purely down to my favorites, where I'd eat if location and price were no object.

I need to fix that. This year I didn't go to Salt & Time, Fogo de Chao, or Terry Black's BBQ even though they were on the list for last year.

                                                                                                                                                                                      Best of 2017 - Television

                                                                                                                                                                                      In general, this list is the "If I had to cut back to a certain number of shows, based on money, time, etc., this is the list of shows I'd cut first (starting with #56) to shows I'd cut last (starting with #1). Last year this list was 50 shows, and there are 24 shows from last year's list that weren't on here (either they ended, didn't have a new season, or I stopped watching them), so I added 30 new shows this year.
