Goodbye 2016


I used to write these New Year’s Speeches every year, and I really enjoyed doing so. I sort of stopped doing it last year, but I’ve tried to find a way to comment on all of the things that happened this year. I came up with this post, in which I want to talk about the entire year briefly. Film, television, and politics. Good and bad. Hope and dread. So if you don’t want anything political with your movie news, speculation, or discussion, then this isn’t the post for you. Continue reading “Goodbye 2016”

New Year’s Speech: “Goodbye 2014”


Once I used to take great pride in my New Year’s Speeches, especially those that I uploaded to my Blogspot-I’m Jeffrey Rex blog. When that blog was drowned by the internet dust, I gave up on uploading these speeches – and therefore I did not give you one at the end of 2013. Now, however, I’ve decided to return to the comfortable world of speech writing. With that having been said, I haven’t done this in a long time – so beware.

The two speeches that I was able to upload to the archive on this blog both had specific dedications. I dedicated 2011 to democracy, and 2012 to the victims of mass shootings. Seeing as I never wrote this type of speech in 2013, I never got to dedicate that year to anything – but retroactively I’d probably dedicate it to the freedom fighters that chose to stand up against their own nation, their own government – the ones that do what is best for the many civilians. I’m talking about Snowden, of course, and people like him. Some things should be kept secret, but the information leaked did also aid us in understanding the governmental injustices of a Goliath in the western world.

But enough of that, let’s get to 2014. A year that is full of disappointment for me, loss, a depressed state, but also a year in which I finally got to do what I really wanted.

A Status Update

Welcome to 2014 – MMXIV in Roman numerals – a year where things will change and I will probably only be posting few updates, sadly.

“I’m going through changes”:

  • 31st of December 2013 marked the first time in a long time that I did not post a New Year’s Speech.
  • Moving on I expect little or no mentioning of the Tour de France. I simply feel like it would be stupid for me to dedicate a lot of time on the blog to that subject, seeing as it is only my Fifth favorite sport.
  • Expect a prediction for the 2014/2015 NFL season to feature this year, I love the NFL, and hopefully I’ll be better than I was at predicting this year. I mean… I predicted that the Ravens would go to the Super Bowl in the 2012/2013 season…
  • Expect more posts simply about my Chicago Bears.
  • My New Years Resolution for 2014 is to watch 365 movies in 365 days, expect posts about the movies I’ve seen this year.
  • My Game of the Year for 2013 was The Last of Us, best game I have ever played.

So that was that. My second semester at the University of Copenhagen begins this february, if you were wondering.

Don’t we all… Don’t we all…

Catch you later!
