Resolutions for 2013: Making movies, making records, cooking...and finishing projects
For our New Year's guide that was inserted in the issue of December 13, we asked thirteen of the town's cultural tastemakers several questions -- and the answers were entertaining, informative and, in many cases, enlightening. Although we posted their individual Q&As on Show and Tell last month, we're doing another round here, this time highlighting some of their resolutions for 2013.

I quit smoking and drinking this year, so I'm definitely not going to smoke cigarettes anymore. That's a big thing. I don't know; I just have more goals and stuff. I'm gonna tour behind the album a whole bunch, and I want to cook a lot more. That's a big resolution as well -- cook more. Try not to smoke weed before noon, and put out two more albums, travel behind this album, that type of nonsense. But definitely the weed and the cooking. I love to cook, and I'm good at it, dammit. You heard it here first.

Execution of ideas -- I'm great at starting projects, terrible at seeing them through. I'm excited about the opportunities that I'm being given, and I want to make sure that I'm setting myself and those involved on these projects up for success. But shhh.... (these projects) are secret.
