Welp, 2015 is here and I’m still fat and broke. Guess my resolutions for 2014 didn’t pan out…again! I did a little bit better with my pop culture resolutions last year, some of which actually came true. So I thought I’d go ahead and make this a new, annual tradition!
Plus this is definitely the year I get in shape and get rich!
There’s a lot in store for us in 2015, one of the biggest pop culture years in a long time. Not only is Avengers 2 hitting the big screen in the spring, but the year’s going to end with the Star Wars relaunch. How cool is that? We’ve got great TV shows, great video games, great comics, and great everything else. But how great can they be? What do I hope to see in 2015? Join me after the jump to find out!
Hey readers, is anybody having any kind of virus or malware problem when they visit my site? One of my readers told me that he visited the blog and suddenly Spanish music started playing from his speakers. Has this happened to anybody else? I’m trying to get to the bottom of it, and any further information would be appreciated, thanks. Let me know in the comments, or e-mail me at Hench4Hire@gmail.com.
One of the most unfortunate tropes in movies is the introduction of a character that you can immediately label.

The nerd in film is just there, for the most part, to help the leading man or woman work through the plot of the story and disappear (possibly into a locker).

My New Year’s Resolution for 2012 was to stop drinking soda. I lasted about two or three weeks before accidentally forgetting while at a basketball game and having a bottle of sweet, sweet Mountain Dew. It was all downhill from there…until I had a checkup in the hospital in September and found I had high blood pressure. After that, I managed to kick the soda and I haven’t had a drop since! So it took a few months, but I managed to fulfill my New Year’s Resolution!
So what about this year?
I know that 2013 is going to be a very good year. I think, if we all put our minds to it, we can totally make it so! And what better way to celebrate 2013 than ensuring that my resolutions succeed! Here are my 6 New Year’s Resolutions for 2013!
