Predictions for 2011

* There will be NFL games in September
* Dubstep will become even more widely known, more of a joke
* The tenth anniversary of 9/11 will be marked by divisive, inflammatory rhetoric in the media (bold prediction, I know)
* My favorite album of the year will be by a hardcore band
* In June, many sports journalists will write articles discussing a possible sea change in the NBA due to the Lakers not making the Finals
* The economy will begin to turnaround in earnest, but not until the fall
* I will continue giving zero fucks about the following: James Blake, professional hockey, Pirates of the Caribbean 4, those Stieg Larsson books everyone seems to be reading, any political blog
* Abe Vigoda will be partying with the rest of the world on New Year's Eve
