A Better System

I need a better system.

Whenever I hear a band I like, or a book I want to read, a movie or a personality I want to check out, I usually jot it down on my calendar in my phone with the intent to look it up later, when my phone reminds me to do so at 9:00 in the evening.

This appears to be a good idea. However, I rarely follow through. I'm always doing... something... at 9:00 and can't seem to take the reminder and run with it. Instead, I ignore it, or forget it, and it becomes lost. Sometimes I think I can just scroll through my calendar and find these hidden gems. But I don't do that. It's too hard.

So. I need a better system. Any ideas?

I've never had a personality I wanted to check out, and actually, I don't even know what that means, so I can't help you there.

Man, that's a toughy. You can carry a little pad of paper in your bag to jot these things down on. I always just write it on my arm. Then I can't forget about it, especially if I end up getting poisoned by the arm-writing.
