I'm setting six New Year's resolutions that celebrate help, hope and humor. We can all use a little more of these qualities for 2013.
Bite-sized goals are easier to digest. Climbing stairs instead of taking elevators or choosing a "bad" parking space to take a brisk walk might not please your aerobics trainer, but the health benefits will be substantial.
Does enlightenment sound too ambitious for a New Year's resolution? Really, it's not. You don't have to become something new. It's like coming out of a tiny one-person tent after a long, long sleep and realizing it was set up in the grand ballroom of your palace.
Southern tradition holds that the more beans and greens you eat on New Year's Day, the more luck and money you will have in the coming year. Beans represent coins, and collards kale, and other greens represent folding money.
Letting a concert's location determine a travel itinerary is not typical-- unless you follow jam bands, of course. But participating in London's holiday revelry was an unexpected benefit to attending the Rolling Stones' 50th anniversary show.
Rather than offer any grand resolutions that won't clear or share my ignorant perspective on life on the Fiscal Cliff, here's an eclectic playlist for this New Year's Eve.
There are plenty of other cities ringing in 2013 in a truly memorable fashion. We've scoured the globe for hot spots where you won't just be another face in a televised crowd, but where you can really kick off an exciting new year in style.
As we sing Auld Lang Syne and sway back and forth with champagne in hand and loved ones in arm, I'd like to propose a toast to the year that was and the year that will be. Here's to New York.
After some great domestic parties ringing in the new year and a number of adventurous international countdowns, I'm now in search of new opportunities to raise the bar and feed the continuing addiction to amazing blowout New Year's Eve celebrations.
Starting a fresh year with a list of things you don't like about yourself and want to change is negative. Shift your focus to all of your positive achievements in the last year and you may find yourself naturally building momentum and wanting to keep it up.
In preparation for a New Year's Eve show, Moby talked exclusively with The Huffington Post about his choice to leave New York for L.A., what you play as David Lynch's wedding DJ and the two sound effects that he feels sum up the policies of the Republican Party.
With so much devastation around us, we can only hope that 2013 will be brighter. Our New Year's Resolutions -- instead of being narrow and selfish -- can truly help to make things better.
What if we had a second date? Would that require another round of intensive prep... was this my new normal? I was conflicted: struggling to find the fine line between contrived and authentic while maintaining my confidence.
New Years Eve 2013 is fast creeping up on us. One of the gifts of growing older is that you don't have to celebrate the New Year. All you have to do is tolerate it. If you can't do that, just endure it.
Well, since the world never ended and we're all still here, it's about time we started thinking about how to bring in the New Year. Some of you have had an elaborately planned night out on the books for months now, some of you are pulling the last minute scramble to rally your friends and find something relatively cost-effective (and far, far away from Times Square), and some of you are planning on completely winging it that night. Regardless of how far along our plans are, we will all end up doing the same things -- drinking, dancing, and listening to music as the world celebrates its only universal holiday.
We believe that if the next generation can see people living in poverty as a part of the solution --rather than as objects of a solution -- we can make significant progress. For truly ending the cycle of poverty requires engagement on the part of the affected populations themselves.
