Groovy (or is that too 1970s?)

Someone found my blog by googling 'The Flying Dutchmen', but I suspect it had nothing to do with me. I then followed up by googling it myself and number uno on the Google page was a cannabis supplier in Amsterdam.

My Flying Dutchmen (which appears in the latest issue of Space & Time) takes the ghost ship from legend, throws it above the skies of Liverpool, adds a handful of aliens and dead people (there always seem to be dead people), and possibly reads as if I'd smoked the above before writing.

I shudder to think what I'd write if I did or how many revolutions I'd do in my chair before spinning into the bookcase.

This is a silly post, but then...

...all my posts are silly. And if you're in the mood for something mega silly, check out the below movie. Funniest thing I've seen in forever...

Heh. I still get the most hits from my "number 5 cake" tutorial from two and half years ago. Speaking of Space & Time...I should receive my subscription soon. Yay!

Yeah...and the majority of my hits are from people searching "Tie Dye Shirts," and "word count tracker."

Although I do have "I hate Netflix" high on the list too.

The movie looks good. I'll have to add it to the ol' queue.

Looking forward to your Flying Dutchman. :-)

I missed that movie when it was released in the theater. It did look funny; I'll have to check out the video.

Congrats on your Flying Dutchman!

Er...I assume ghost ships levitating over Liverpool are infrequent?

"I love you, Metroman!"
"I love you, too, random citizen!"

Too funny!

Congrats on Space and Time; that's a print mag, right? I'll have to try them again once they reopen for submissions. Megamind is on our Netflix queue!

Double yay, Aaron.

Strangely, the 2011 graphic I posted to welcome in the new year is my most popular post, Anthony. or maybe that should be... sadly ;)

You'll love it, Kate. I don't know how I'd not heard of it.

Gosh, no. We get them all the time, Alan. Come visit.

Bobbie, Natalie - you're both making me want to watch it again (and again).

It is print, Milo.

I wonder how many regular readers one picks up from people "stumbling" upon a blog for completely different reasons.

Katey said...

I think most of my hits come from the naked picture of Ana de la Reguera I posted once and the blog post titled "John the Baptist and the Insolently Sexy Sheep". I'll just stop right there.

Sounds like a wonderful story--I'll have to hit it up.

And Megamind was awesome :D

Cate Gardner said...

I suspect none when they stumble here, Danielle ;)

More proof that everyone but me knew about Megamind. It makes me want to be particularly evil. *Insert Evil Laugh here* :D

For me, a fair bit of traffic has been coming from people searching for Hitchhiker's Guide Banned. I wrote a review of that book a year and a half ago for banned books week. Go figure.
