I'm always stuck when it comes to New Year's resolutions. I've already got a great job, a beautiful lady & a weekly soap-box to rave about my favorite theaters. But there's always room for improvement. For instance, I'm not as curmudgeonly as I'd like. Luckily, the Aero has my late lifecoach, W.C. Fields, and two of his finest films to help me on my way. I'd also like to increase my martini consumption. New Year's Eve is a lovely opportunity to brush up, but if I'm resolving to do this, I should enroll in the Egyptian Theatre's weekend seminar, led by inspirational drinker James Bond.

Maybe 2010 will be the year I get my finances together. At the Art Theatre, they teach that if I pay for Nine, I can get 8 1/2 back, for free! The savings should be enough to pay for school for something practical, like information technologies. Then I can do practical things, like vet VGA vixens! The New Bev is leading the way, through its world-renowned Weird Science program. Early birds get choice seats in the front, plus a complimentary Breakfast! Full-time studies not fitting your schedule? The Bev also offers (mid)night classes in eclectic engineering, courtesy of Empire Pictures' TerrorVision. You can even minor in gold-digging!

Full list appears below. See you at the movies!
