The Vatican and I Agree….

… on something. Seriously. While they didn’t check with me first, this article tells it all. It sort of relates to my infamous Led Zeppelin post by failing to mention Led Zeppelin at all. The actual article can be found on the Vatican’s website in L’Osservatore Romano, the Vatican’s official newspaper. If I’m going to […]

Today’s Update Of Random Stuff

I am in pain. Excruciating pain. My whiplash (or maybe something related) came back in full force this morning, though I had warning signs yesterday. I had no neck rotation to the left more than an inch or so. Totally crippled due to pain. My chiropractor saw me and made it a bit better, however […]

All Sorts of Tidbits II

Ah, yes, the compendium type post. Sure to be of interest to no-one, except, guess what? You’re here reading it. So it must interest someone at least little on some level. That or your RSS reader has let you down in a spectacular fashion. First, the blog is approaching 200,000 posts and I expect we’ll […]

Why Led Zeppelin Sucks, Part II

(This post was edited on 27 October to include additional chart data) On 5 March 2005, I made the obvious and ludicrously titled post “Why Led Zeppelin Sucks” which has generated tens of thousands of hits on this blog. Two-and-a-half years later, it’s still generating traffic every single day as well as random hate-mail to […]

My website is actually getting popular

It’s thanks to the blog naturally. As of June 2005 there were 68 million web pages and that number has, quite obviously grown. A site called alexa.com ranks them all based on traffic analysis. If you’re in the top 100,000 you get all sorts of coolness factors. I’m not there — not even close. However, […]

One Hundred Thousand Hits

In the next few days, this blog will record its 100,000th hit since it went live 17 October 2004 — who could have imagined? That’s huge. Traffic has died off over the past year, but that’s still an impressive number. It’s also terribly misleading. Most of our traffic is currently driven by the world famous […]

RIP: Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd

Legendary original Pink Floyd member Syd Barrett has died. The troubled Pink Floyd co-founder spent his last years in reclusive anonymity. A spokeswoman for the band said Barrett died several days ago, but did not disclose the cause of death. The surviving members of Pink Floyd – David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Roger Waters, and Richard […]

Crazy Frog, Led Zeppelin, and Masturbating

I originally made a post called Crazy Frog or Coldplay back on June 3rd, 2005. Pretty innocuous, eh? Well, it’s interesting because over 25% of the people who find their way to my blog are looking for that post. Another 20% are looking for my post from March 5th, 2005 called Why Led Zeppelin Sucks […]

Why Led Zeppelin Sucks

OK, that’s not true but it certainly got your attention. You’re here reading, aren’t you? Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” definitely is a classic work that sits atop the pantheon of rock songs that will last forever. Nobody would deny it is a singular work of art. I love that song. However, I was realizing […]
