If you can see this, you’ve survived the Mayan apocalypse. 2013 is here!  I took a brief survey of some of According2g.com’s All-Stars in the fields of art, music and publishing to find out what their 2013 New Year’s Resolutions are.  For those, like me that don’t make resolutions anymore, I asked them to tell us what they are looking forward to in 2013. Click on their name to be directed to their websites to learn more about these great minds.  Thanks to everyone that participated and I hope 2013 exceeds your dreams, goals and visions!

“I’m looking forward to a continuing Obama Presidency and an improving global economy due to less wasteful, more intelligent and focused behavior. I’m also looking forward to spring weather.” – Mark Kostabi, Artist.

“My resolution is to let go of old grudges and start developing some new ones. For the new year, I’m looking forward to human rights, cultural enchantment, and social bliss, but I’m not looking forward to any action film sequels.” – Michael Musto, Writer

“1. I am looking forward to the rest of the country realizing that all people have the right to love who they want and to celebrate that relationship in marriage.
2. I am looking forward to the rest of the country realizing that Muslims are not to be feared and in fact they are just like us.
3. I am looking forward to alternative forms of health care that utilize what is already here on earth. We are cutting down the rain forests and yet there are a lot of plants that can benefit mankind.
4. I am looking forward to humans embracing nature in everything we do. I want advertisements (ie., car commercials where the car dominates nature) to embrace nature not destroy it. We need this planet more than it needs us and if we don’t embrace it and take care of it, it will get rid of us for it’s own survival.

As far as new years resolutions… those are hard because most people who make them don’t keep them and then they feel guilty. My New Year’s resolution is to be nice to nature and humans and to lead by example. My job is to make new things and to not copy others. I want people to celebrate the hand made and to value it over technology. I want people to start talking to each other again instead of texting. Let’s return to the real next year.” - Don Porcella, Artist, Musician, Coffee Maker

“I’m looking forward to continuing health no matter what happens in 2013.  If you’re not healthy and feeling good you can’t enjoy the good times or battle the bad.  I’m having a show in late April of new sculptures and paintings at Paul Kasmin Gallery (in New York).   Also I’m involved in a futures show at the Museum of Art in Mobile, Alabama, which will include murals, installations and paintings, and  a large outdoor mural in Santa Monica, California, as well as other fun and big stuff (more work) that I don’t want to announce just yet.   Most of all, I hope the world makes the huge changes (wean off petroleum, for example) that need to take place in order for the children to inherit a better place!” – Kenny Scharf, Artist

“I am finalizing on designs for a t-shirt, cell phone cases, sticker sheets and the Summer 2013 Graphic Sunglasses! I’ll also be honing in on a location to paint my first public mural as well as my first public art show on my own in Manhattan. Some important first steps for the burgeoning artist – ALL of which G will be present and covering…i hope.” – TY, Artist

“I’m looking forward to making more stuff, being in New York more, traveling a little less and meeting more people – friends, neighbours, peers and pizzeria owners.  My Visa will expire in 2013 so I need to make the most of being in America before I’m shipped off back to the UK.  Cheers + happy holidays” – Jon Burgerman, Artist

“2012 was an amazing, special year. I wish 2013 will be a year of correction -  we have to discover new things and understand that many things we like or want are not necessary any more. We have to wake up from some dreams and create a new one better and powerful one. I want to be surrounded with great people in a beautiful places that will bring me inspiration and magic always to touch other people’s hearts and minds.  I want the summer to be longer and time to be slower.” – Nir Hod, Artist

“My Resolution for 2013 is to surpass my creative limits and to learn to speak fluent Spanish! Also, to have my project at the Bronx Museum (fall 2013) blow people’s minds! Hope to see lots more of you this coming year too!” – Scooter LaForge, Artist

“My resolution for the New Year is less porn and more painting or is that backwards damn it!?!
Happy New Year’s, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa!” – Eric ‘Eyeball’ Richardson, Artist

“Violet Blue” (Acoustic) by Jill Jones and Jeremy Gloff

Video by Jeremy Gloff.

Jill Jones fans – take a seat because the video you are about to see is going to give you chills!  A few weeks ago, the wonderfully talented singer Jeremy Gloff was in New York on tour promoting his newest record “21st Century Love Songs,” and he announced he’d be accompanied on stage by the one and only Jill Jones!  Due to an unfortunate scheduling issue, Jill was unable to make the show.  Jill did not want to disappoint her fans, so her and Jeremy got together and recorded an acoustic version of her classic song “Violet Blue.”  Jeremy sent me the video this morning and I can’t stop watching it.  I spoke with Jill and she’s on the verge of announcing some pretty exciting news, so stay tuned for that!  And now, Jeremy Gloff and Jill Jones singing an acoustic version of “Violet Blue.”

Jill Jones News!

Attention fans of delicious pop music!  The multi-talented singer/songwriter Jeremy Gloff has announced the release date for his next album, “21st Century Love Songs.”  The album drops on November 14, 2009 and is preceeded by the first single “Oh Sweet Boy.”  The video is already up on Youtube and on Jeremy’s official site.  The video for “Oh Sweet Boy” was directed by Aubrey Bramble.

“21st Century Love Songs” features a cover of The Grand Royals (Jill Jones and Ian Ginsberg) classic “So Much In Love.”  I had the pleasure of seeing Jeremy and Jill perform this song live last year, and the performance was so hot, the audience was left begging for more.
