"...the same thing we do every night, Pink: TRY TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD!"

yes, that's Pink, not Pinky.

Pink descending from the heavens on her Cyborg-O-Rotic Sexbot Princess Throne (probably)

what do i mean by this? i mean:

my statcounter now collects up to 10,000 entries at a time. and, at any given moment, approximately 20-30% of my hits and about 70-80% of my keyword hits apparently came here by looking for these magic words:

(oo, she going to said it again! Jehovah! Je--)

"I'm not here for your entertainment."

Consistently. For, like, months now. And just about all of them from Somewheres Else.

Hungary. Egypt. Malaysia. Morocco. Iceland. Brazil. Aruba. Jamaica (oo, I--shut up). seriously, everyone in the damn world, apparently, really really digs that song.

they must do, because how do you explain that many people ending up at -my- place for it? I don't even think the youtube link to wherever that post is works anymore. (on edit: o all right, i put in a damn hyperlink for this post, how can i not, really, now i'm REALLY Central Station for it i suppose)

so, whatever else that says (yea yea yea, it probably could've been any popular song title) (but for -this long?-), I am thinking:

does this mean that the Message of the song, which after all is rather, shall we say, on the feministic side, has been permeating to hearts and minds all over the globe? are millions of chastened young men and newly assertive young women redefining the nightlife experience? is Pink, in fact, helping to Take Back The Night around the world?

or are people mostly just boppin' their head and lookin' at the eye candy?

in any case, it's a rather welcome relief from endless bizarro/disturbing/banal pr0n-related search strings. which, I do get--who doesn't--but not so many as you might think, all things considered.

Envy. My random search term of 75% of my traffic is "fix your hair up" which i catch from quoting some song lyrics...

it's originally a song by the Boss, and covered by The Band...so it contains very few practical tips on doing one's hair "pretty" but it does apparently cast many a youth seeking beauty headlong into a post-modern discussion of race, sexuality, and identity.

Hmm.

How random!! Oddly enough, the majority of the people who arrive at my site randomly usually get there by googling some variation of: "should men wear thongs?". Who woulda thunk it?

Hmmmm, 10,000 hits per day? Looks like somebody's really popular!!! :)

sulz said...

my country's been mentioned, how can i not comment? =) pink's songs received good airplay here, but she isn't someone we go crazy over musically.

belledame222 said...

hey, welcome sulz.

fbc: o no, not 10,000 visits a -day,- that's how many it keeps on record at a time. i get somewhere between 700-1000 hits a day, these days, on average.

sorry i missed Friday, p.s. hope you guys had fun...

belledame222 said...

sulz: which one is your country?

nexy said...

i get some winner key words, like "gay men using tampons", "britney's head", and "boys are crossdressers". of course, now that i've repeated them here, you'll get them too :)

I usually get searches on "rape porn," which constitute 10-15% of my traffic (300/day, even though my blog closed its doors almost two months ago).

I didn't think anybody except overeducated intellectuals even listened to the words of any song.

Guess I was overly impressed by that research in the late 70s that determined teenage fans of Led Zeppelin thought Stairway to Heaven was about - yes - a stairway to heaven.

belledame222 said...

well, again, they're pretty much all from -outside- the U.S.

...whatever that tells you.

Alon Levy said...

Well, this is a place for overeducated intellectuals. I got a notice a few days ago telling me I got an M.A., which makes me officially a multi-degreed asswipe (now if only I get around to doing that homework set due three weeks ago...). It's my understanding that Belledame's an M.F.A., which makes her an MDA as well.

belledame222 said...

um, congratulations?...wait, seriously, an M.A.?

anyway, yeah, M.F.A., and also forthcoming probably a I forget the acronym, Masters' in Mental Health Counseling, although it's looking like i will not be starting that process this year, after all. hopefully next year.

belledame222 said...

but you know, if one is going to be an asswipe with degrees, it really is best to have many: more degrees=more wipes=better hygiene is what i say.

For some reason, Columbia awards every Ph.D. student an M.A. after a year and an M.Phil. after another two. So if I were more shameless than I am, I could put "I have a non-terminal M.A. from Columbia" on every query letter, with no need to say what subject it was in...

Deoridhe said...

I love that song for the lyrics (yes, I listen to lyrics, though I'll admit I was one of the millions who thought "Born in the USA" was a compliment until I actually heard what he was saying some many years later) but I have mixed feelings about the video.

Le sigh.

The other day someone found my blog by searching for the terms "cons of feminism and women's rights".

Gotta say, that was a weird one.

belledame222 said...

do you think they meant "cons," like "pros and cons," or "cons" like "scams," or "cons" like "convicts?"

in increasing order of "that would be interesting"

You know, I'm not sure, but I agree that all possibilities lead down a path that causes one to wonder.
