Richard Marx New Years Resolutions

10. Offer a cash reward to make Donald Trump produce proof of his actual hairline.

9. Pull major bank heist. Let Mark Ruffalo take the fall.

8. Sing the hook of Sara Bareilles’ “King of Anything” at the top of my lungs into the face of a random cashier at Burger King.

7. Schedule plenty of cuddle time with Matt Nathanson.

6. Finally learn the words to “Copacabana.” Like… ALL the words, yo.

5. Humanitarian act: Re-categorize people who confuse “your” and “you’re” from “utterly” useless to “somewhat” useless.

4. Get through at least another year without having seen a single second of “Downton Abbey.”

3. Start using the phrase “Well, back in my day” constantly.

2. Form a metal band called Baba Ganoush.

1. Up my showering to a two-a-week… minimum.

    Can I be a Baba Ganoush roadie? I know all the words to Copacabana and own Matt’s back catalogue after seeing him perform live with Train :)

    Having a job would make my new year but would settle for seeing you guys live again. That’s the about easily pleased people – everythings simple ;)

    Being from the UK I’m not sure who all the people that you mention are, but I do know Downton Abbey and I have never and will never watch it!! With you all the way with ‘your’ and ‘you’re’ also add another good one, ‘definite’ very definitely NOT ‘definate’!!

    I love your sense of humour (the English way, is just as funny as the American way!!) Lol. Hope you’ll be coming to the UK sometime in 2013.

  11. December 31, 2012

    Hilarious, Richard! Best resolutions ever.

    Lol. I agree great sense of humor. Thanks for such a wonderful year of music, posts, tweets and touching Christmas music. I can’t get Christmas Spirit out of my head, find myself humming it throughout the day. Certainly will me a Christmas “must” for me from now on. God’s blessings to you, Cynthia and the Marx-brothers in the coming year..

    Your sense of humor has not changed! However, I will still categorize people in #5 as utterly useless. I hope to hear more of your music in 2013. (& more for those talented boys!) Happy New Year.

    Love your humor and maybe we should expect Donald Trump to show us HIS TAX RETURNS & his BIRTH CERTIFICATE along with a DNA match of his hair to see if he left it with one of his unsuspecting flings!!!! OMG “DID I SAY THAT?????? Thanks and if you do that song at a Burger King I sure as heck think it will be the funniest ever!!!! I would also love to see it on Video TOO!!! LOL
