My Blog’s July 2015 Stats

IMG_1543

I’ve decided to do a little monthly blog stats review on the first Sunday of each month (at 2:00 pm as, apparently, this is the time & day when I get the most views). Really?! Huh. Weekends are always so dead on the blogs. Well, hello to all you Sunday blog readers! πŸ™‚

Here are my July 2015 Blog Stats:

July gave me the highest number of views so far this year, which was surprising as summer on the blogs is always very quiet (in my two & a half years of experience at this blogging thing, anyway). I suppose I ended up posting quite a few things as I’ve been trying to manage my time better (but I’ve been too busy this week so have nothing prepared for this coming week yet!! Damn – I like to be at least a week ahead on scheduling posts!).

Anyway, here are My Top Posts for July:

It looks like my review of Minions is the winner this month. I knew it! Everyone loves those crazy minions! πŸ™‚ I’m also happy to see that my nerdy Star Wars trip into London to see Secret Cinema’s The Empire Strikes Back got the second highest amount of views. As always, my post of My Top Ten Shower & Bath Scenes In Movies is still going strong. Seriously, I posted that in April of 2013 – that post is never going to die! Thank you, pervy Googlers. I’m also happy that my two posts of “mini-reviews” did well & got some great comments from you guys (the last one I did had reviews of Drugstore Cowboy, At Close Range & Slacker). I’m doing those to catch up as I’m way behind on reviewing what I’ve watched, but if I do it too often I’ll run out of movies to post about. πŸ˜‰ I like how quick & easy they are and the good response they get, though, so I’ll try to do a couple each month.

My Top Search Terms for July:

It never ceases to amaze me to see that the majority of my top search terms are pervy. ALWAYS. I know that’s the same for everyone with a blog, though. The biggest ones here are the usual ones who get searched for on my blog every month: Alice Eve, Lucy Deakins, the girl (Addison Timlin) in the revealing panties in Odd Thomas, and Anna Kendrick in the shower in Pitch Perfect. I’m surprised at just how many people come here searching for Lucy Deakins. She wasn’t in many films but I think a lot of boys going through puberty really liked her in The Great Outdoors & I talked about her in my review of that movie (HERE). I also included a pervy gif – Sorry, Lucy Deakins. I absolutely loved her movie The Boy Who Could Fly but you young people reading this blog would hate it so don’t watch it! Here’s Lucy Deakins again for my Googlers:

I was very intrigued by the search term “Judie Aronson Feet” as I didn’t even know who the hell that was. Oh – that’s Hilly from Weird Science! I’m pretty sure I didn’t mention her feet in my review, though….

Finally, “They Live Movie Quotes” popped up on the 31st, I’m assuming right after the sad news of Roddy Piper’s death. They Live is a favorite movie of mine (and my very favorite John Carpenter movie). I haven’t yet reviewed it but did of course once post the bubblegum quote as it’s one of the all-time greatest movie quotes.

R.I.P. ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper

My Top Commenters & New Followers:

Thanks again to everyone who takes the time to comment on my posts. That’s the whole reason why I blog! I love discussing movies with you guys. πŸ™‚ I think I’ve been a little better at visiting all your blogs this month too (that whole better time management thing) but I did have a hectic time this week so didn’t manage it… Sorry! I’ll be back soon! I totally don’t get the top commenters statistics, though. The numbers never really seem to change and you can’t look at them by month, year, etc. So I don’t know what the hell those numbers up above even mean but I believe those are the people I’ve seen the most lately. Hi, guys! *Hugs* lol

And hello to my new followers this month. I don’t always catch the new follower notifications so I’m sorry if I’ve missed following any of you back. (I’d hug you too but we don’t know each other well enough yet) πŸ˜‰

That’s it! See you again next month with August’s stats. August?! Where has this year gone? Where has my LIFE gone?! When did I get so old?!?!?! Ugh.

Happy August, everyone. πŸ™‚

My Top Ten John Carpenter Movies

Happy Birthday to John Carpenter, who turns 67 today! πŸ™‚

I announced in my 2 Year Blogiversary post that I’d be working on a John Carpenter Project throughout this year where I’ll do my best to review all the films he’s directed (that’s back when I was all positive & full of great ideas before the Winter Blues kicked in). πŸ˜‰ Well, I’ll get to reviewing his movies at some point but for now here’s a Top Ten (So Far) list.

These are My Top Ten Favorite John Carpenter Movies counting down from ten to my number one favorite, Ghosts Of Mars. (Ha! Just checking if anyone is reading this – I swear no one reads my intros).

10. Ghosts Of Mars

2015/01/img_8381.jpg

Before anyone freaks out at me over this, I should point out that I’ve only SEEN ten John Carpenter movies. Wait a second… is that horrible looking picture really from this movie?!?! I’m now wondering if I HAVE seen this. Screw it – I’ve already called this a top “ten”.

9. Village Of The Damned

2015/01/img_8382.jpg

I’ve definitely seen this & it was definitely shit. But Meredith Salenger was in it, so that’s cool…

8. Christine

2015/01/img_8383.jpg

I barely remember this.

7. The Ward

2015/01/img_8384.jpg

This sucked but Amber Heard is hot. Maybe this would actually be below Christine. See comment on Christine…

6. Big Trouble In Little China

2015/01/img_8385.jpg

Man, I barely remember this either but I used to have a crush on Kurt Russell, so…

5. Dark Star

2015/01/img_8386.jpg

I remember this since I just watched it last Autumn. Woohoo!

4. The Fog

2015/01/img_8387.jpg

Hmm. I really need to refresh my memory on this one as well. Is it becoming obvious why I need to do a John Carpenter Project? πŸ˜‰

3. Halloween

2015/01/img_8388.jpg

Here we are! The top three! The three John Carpenter movies I really know & love. How could he go from stuff like this to Ghosts Of Mars?! Anyway, this is an all-time slasher classic.

2. The Thing

2015/01/img_8389.jpg

CLASSIC! Who doesn’t like this movie? If you don’t like this, you’re weird. I accept differences of opinion here but, seriously – all normal people like this movie.

1. They Live

2015/01/img_8390.jpg

That’s right, I have this above The Thing. Is this a better film than The Thing or Halloween? Nope! But it’s my favorite.

So, anyway – the plan is to update this Top Ten once I’ve seen the rest of John Carpenter’s films. I’m pretty sure Ghosts Of Mars won’t make the final cut based on that picture…

And totally unrelated to this post but is The Lego Movie seriously not up for Best Animated Feature Oscar?!?!
