Happy Belated Birthday to Us!
Yeah, I’m shit. But hey, better late than never.
We officially passed our five year anniversary on October the 8th! So Happy Birthday to us.
Just to run through some bare statistics for a quick moment. In the last 5 years:
We’ve published 1095 different pieces of (generally) film related nonsense- clocking in at over 200 per year, which is fairly prolific by the standards of a wee film blog on the internet. I was going to put links to the most popular ones, but I generally don’t think they’re our best work. So I’m not.
We’ve had a whopping 740,000 visitors, according to WordPress’ dubious stats, and have received over 143,000 comments on various bits and bobs.
We’ve been searched out on a wide range of different terms (a worrying amount of which seem to be calling me a cunt), the most popular of which is, strangely, Clouds, but it’s nice to see that over 1000 sticky fingered internet perverts found us through googling “Alien Rape”.
We’ve had arguments with film directors, and an epic protracted smack down with Hollywood producer Don Murphy. But what’s really most impressive is that we’re still here and going after this amount of time given that most blogs of this sort seem to become idle in about 2 years.
In the real world, some of us have had kids, some have changed jobs, Droid even returned back to Convictland. I’d like to say that we’ve grown as people, but that’s flagrantly untrue given that I spent this morning watching C.H.U.D.
Anyway, so a quick moment of thanks to everyone that has contributed, read, visited or commented on our various bits and bobbins, and made our little corner of the internet the irreverent and amusing place that it is. Instead of listing you all, I’m merely going to say…
Thank you one and all,
