- TV audiences accept that if we ever do catch footage of a ghost, UFO or bigfoot on video (which we won't because, well...), it is not going to show up at 11:43 PM on a Saturday on Animal Planet.
- The TV audience realizes that the people who are pursuing these things have decided to divorce themselves from reality for reasons that probably have to do with a lack of hugs in their formative years, because they played a lot of Dungeons & Dragons as kids, and/ or they might just not be very bright
- Except for Mothman, which is totally real
- Indie creators look at the marketplace and quit making the same five indie comic books over and over (you are only allowed to do zombies, vampires or were-beasts if your last name is Roberson and/ or you are going to do something entirely new with the concept).
- On the flipside, I'd like to see DC and Marvel just make solid comics about their major characters (like Waid's Daredevil).
- Someone, somewhere in comics makes a first issue that does half a good a job as your average TV show at setting up new characters, a setting and a conflict instead of just seemingly throwing genre bits on the page. This may mean your first issue is more than 20 pages. I'm sorry.
- Comic readers will realize that Dragon Ball Z and Pro-Wrestling are not the be-all/ end-all of storytelling, and we hit at least YA-levels of narrative in more comics.
- The stuff inside comics will be half as interesting as the stuff happening outside the comics
- Creators will realize they have the power to take things into their own hands if they can work out new models of vertical integration and a few step up to act like business people (Image for 2012)
- Publishers like IDW will realize their real job is to reach an audience outside of the direct market, including pricing models that work for folks on the street
- I have nothing to offer Marvel and DC. You're both offering me small selections of books I'll pick up, but its clear its time for major changes at both companies. I am waiting for your corporate bosses to clue in to this fact.
- You would sell more comics if they were 25 pages for $2. I'm just saying.
- My cable service will realize that offering me 200 channels is not something that's cost effective for either of us. I watch shows, not networks. If one cent of my money is going towards baking shows, bridal shows, home-shopping shows, pregnant teen shows, etc... then cable may have quit making any sense for me. (I really just need local news and TCM, HBO and ESPN at this point. I believe everything else winds up on Hulu.)
- Someone will come up with a News Network that actually shows me the news and not Nancy Grace and that horrid Jane Velez-Mitchell being
- Another season of Louis would be great. As would the continuation of Venture Bros.
On the Election Cycle:
- For me not to want to gouge my own eyes out by June and wish for the replacement of our voting system with a monarchy
- For the unbelievable distortions and fantasy/ paranoid fabrications to be covered as such by mainstream news media instead of being looked at as if the complete distortions have a grain of truth
- For voters to actually think about what a candidate is really saying and weigh that against whether or not that's something a @#$%ing lunatic might say
