Ranking My Popularity

So blogger has this whole new interface, including the way in which I post and view my behind-the-scenes portions of my blog.  One of the new tools allows me to see the number of page views that I get per post.  Here are the top ten posts since I started blogging in 2005:

10. Stupid Sexy Flanders
I think that I was just looking for an excuse to post that picture.  And I think that people were just googling "stupid sexy flanders" in order to find this picture.

9. The Young Victoria
Oh, how I loved this film. I know that Hollywood is running out of ideas (see: every superhero/comic book movie made in the past five years), so it's just refreshing when a well-acted movie with a good script comes along. And the pretty costumes!

8. Diet Pop Can Suck It
Wow, this was an embarrassingly shitty post.

7. Listen to the Song of Life
Another post where I probably should have just gone to bed.

6. It Was Like a Gory, Nasty, Super Bad Horror Movie, But Grosser
It doesn't matter how many words I devoted to that post, because that experience will never be accurately described.  It was a true example of "You had to be there."  And trust me - you did NOT want to be there.

5. Masters of the Universe
I love Netflix, I do.  Netflix allows me to watch obscure tv shows and documentaries, but Netflix also made it possible for Mike to get this movie.  And then I had to watch it (in retaliation for making him watch Atonement).

I just reread my post.  God, I crack myself up.

"But sneaky Gwildor returns them to Earth the morning BEFORE Julie's parents die in a fiery plane crash, and everything is all hunky-dory and Julie doesn't have to move to New Jersey after all, which would probably be worse than having dead parents anyway."

4. Zombieland
A fun movie that should help you prepare for the inevitable zombie apocalypse!  Great acting.

3. A Walking Tour of L'Enfant Promenade
Awwww, I miss Shooze. Not so much L'Enfant Promenade, though.

2. Traffic Circles. If You're Scared of Them, Then GO A DIFFERENT WAY OH MY GOD
"Do you want to know who is good at traffic circles? ME. Do you want to know who is not good at traffic circles? EVERYONE ELSE."


And number one? It really surprised me.  I don't know what I thought that it would be, but this one post has 1,686 page views to date (!!!).  So other people love bad movies, too.  Apparently.

1. Judge Dredd: A Real Time Recap
"Oh sweet Christ, it's Rob Schneider. Okay, clearly they want me to hate this movie. He's just been released from prison for doing... something. He's wearing cargo shorts. It doesn't seem like that would be too smart in the third fucking millennium with the scorched, cursed earth, but what do I know?"
