Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015

Another year draws to a close. 2014 was a chaotic year in many respects, and will probably not go down in the history books as a great one in general. Here’s hoping that things look up in 2015!

Honestly, I can’t complain too much. 2014 brought me two wonderful, healthy sons who will be celebrating their first birthday as you read this. (Yeah, technically they arrived in 2013, but barely for half a day.) Fortunately, that managed to overshadow everything else going on in the world, from Ebola to ISIS to race riots and other horrors. I try not to think about those things too much.

This will be our last post for 2014 and for the week. It’s a slow news week on the home theater front and I have a birthday party to deal with. We’ll be back on Monday with a new Blu-ray roundup and other posts.

For anyone interested in stats, this marks our 4,612th post since the Bonus View blog’s inception in 2010. Of those, I wrote 2,057 (about 45%). Our next most prolific contributor is Luke Hickman with 621. We published 794 posts in 2014, which averages to about 66 a month. I try to maintain a schedule of at least three new posts per workday, but that’s harder to achieve on some days than others. I’ve given up on this week. We’ll see what next week brings us.

In the meantime, everyone at High-Def Digest wishes a happy and prosperous new year to all of our readers! We’ll see you in 2015.

      I am really looking forward to being able to generate 1.21 gigawatts of electricity from trash in my appartment! Not only do I get free electricity, but that will be enough left over to feed back into the electrical system! 2015 is looking like a great money-making year for me generating cheap electricity!

    2014 was great for me. 2013 ended with a fire (December 30, 2013) at my apartmenent, and I lost everything. However, that also brought a huge insurance check and tax return, as I was able to claim it on 2013 taxes, so this meant that I paid off all credit cards and stuff in collections (Medical bills – why don’t doctors ever call you to tell you that insurance didn’t pay, and just turn it straight over to collections, and you don’t even know its in collections until you check your credit report?). This also allowed me to design my home theater from the ground up, and allowed me to take a trip to Europe back in September. As my credit is now decent, I am working right now on on the possibility of buying a house around April or May. So 2013 ended badly, but 2014 has been great! (Admittedly, January 2014 was rough, as I litterally had nothing and had to rebuy everything).
