my buried life list (1-50)

Ricky-chan72's picture

I was inspired by a magazine article on the Buried Life, a group of 4 guys traveling around, completing a list of 100 things they want to do before they die. Now I'm too lazy to compile a list of 100 objectives in one sitting, so here's items 1 through 50 on my list. Maybe I'll inspire you guys to write your own... (beware, it's kinda long)

1. Travel to every continent on Earth.
2. Make at least 3 short films.
3. Open a gallery.
4. Study abroad in Paris.
5. Live in Tokyo for a month.

10. Visit the Grand Canyon.

Up, up, a little bit higher
Oh, my, the moon is on fire

I have heard of zines

I have heard of zines before, I think that's where I'll start and maybe if I make enough monies someday I can make an actual magazine, even if it's only like 2 issues. And sure you can join me on 36 & 39. :D

monies = plural of money. I

monies = plural of money. I thought I made this word up, but it's in the dictionary and apparently business type people use it, including my boss... it sounds so funny when business types say it, "Now, how exactly are we investing our monies in this venture?" XD
