Top Five

This old blog is coming up on two years in the blogosphere – that’s eight years in Internet time according to my e-marketing friends.

In these most recent 24 months, several blog posts have risen to the top as “most popular or frequented,” at the Land of 10,000 Perspectives. While they aren’t necessarily my favorites, I’m proud of the page views they’ve generated.

The Top Five Frequented Posts include:

1. Friday Philosophy – Shivering (11,195 page views). Here I lament about the sub-zero temperatures Minneapolis dips into each January. But really it’s the picture of frostbitten fingers that most visitors are after.  Can you say purple and black?

2. Crazy for Madonna – Or Just Crazy Madonna (7,572 page views). In the post about the Material Girl, I compare her early good looks to her witchy 50-year-old smile. I’ve received a lot of hate e-mails about this post from Madonna lovers. I just can’t get over the fact that she looks haggy. Guess all that material wealth hasn’t helped in the looks department.

3. Cities 97 Sampler Volume 20 (3,025 page views). For 20 years, local FM radio volume-20station, Cities 97, has produced a CD of indie, rock and alt songs. The CD sells out in the Twin Cities in a matter of hours. Its popularity has a cult following and I’ve seen the entire set of CDs sell for more than $350 at charity auctions. By the way, proceeds from the CD go to charities in Minnesota.  Nice goin’ Cities 97!

4. “Skinny Love” – Bon Iver (2,771 page views). Wisconsin native Justin Vernon issued his “Forever For Emma,” CD eons ago, it seems, to much critical acclaim. This post gets hits because I’ve posted the lyrics to the song, which I am want to do with most of the tunes I post on the site.

5. Cities 97 Sampler Volume 19 (2,650 page views). See previous graph about Volume 20. By the way, my favorite Sampler CD of all time is Volume 14. You can check out all the Samplers and their song lists here.

There you have it. The Top-Five all time greatest posts on my blog.  More to come, so bookmark the page and stay tuned.

Apparently the rumors are false. Madonna and Guy are not getting a divorce.

People Magazine just reported, “Madonna’s husband Guy arrived in New York last night to be with his wife and family (not in a last ditch attempt to save his marriage which does not need saving),” Liz Rosenberg, Madonna’s spokeswoman, said. “There are no plans for Madonna and Guy to divorce.”

Rosenberg also denied a published report of a relationship between the singer and New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez.

I’m not so sure. It kinda’ looks like Madonna is winkin’ at A-Rod.

Nonetheless, let’s just be glad we can all sleep in peace tonight since this celebrity wedding is secure!

Three months ago, back in early December, I posted then and now photos of Madonna reflecting on how crazy she looks these days. The post drew no comments, initially.

But in the past month, since Madonna was named an inductee to the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame, that same post has received 70-plus page views every day.

Meanwhile, no one really cares who the next president of the United States will be unless they’re on the extreme – either right or left. Oh, I shouldn’t say they “don’t care.” I just get the feeling that a vast majority of Americans are still waking up from a drunken stupor laid on them by the Clinton Administration, circa 1992 – 2000. We’re only now realizing that our bank accounts are nearly empty thanks to the current administration. Egads!

Perhaps, if this were a simple popularity contest, Madonna could be president.
