The United States of Whatevs

ReturntoSuckassNumber one Search term on Google for the past 2 hours, “Return to Halloweentown”  it’s after 7pm all over the US right now.  It is literally past the bedtimes of the majority of the people using Google to search now.  Nice.  Also, how is it that saltpeter became so popular?  Did someone on TV suddenly discover how to make their teenage son stop masturbating at dinner?

Return to Halloweentown is a kids movie about a family of witches and their ongoing relationship with an alternate universe with rubbersuit monsters as the primary residents.  Said Halloweentown residents sometimes cross over and have adventures in the “real” world.  I know this because I have a sub-teen in my house and she watches these movies as if they are entertainment.  I know that if it isn’t Ernest Saves Hallowe’en it isn’t a good kids Hallowe’en movie.

Wot I Think of ‘Harry

Wot I Think of Harry

Number one Son.  Number one! Not Really, the post isn’t linked only my blog itself, too bad.

I really don’t have the Google Juice for anything beyond the most trenchant of topics (*cough* Drinking Games *cough*) but while I’ve been testing out Piwik as an open-source replacement for google analytics (that we can more tightly control and use for free internally) I’ve been amused by what search terms constantly show up (horsecock being number one for AGES)

So; thank-you to everyone who saw “Harry Potter is a Dick” on my blog and clicked on it, knowing that indeed Harry IS a dick and why do we keep paying for Harry Potter stuff anyway?  Oh yeah, because it is entertaining.

Cuil: Totally useless

I read about cuil this morning while looking through the posts on my iGoogle page.  Interested in new things and not willing to simply discount it out of hand, I fired up the ethernets and typed my name and interests into it’s waiting inputs.

And didn’t find the website you are reading this on.

Not at all.

Not even if I searched for things I knew were on this page.

So, yeah. Cuil sucks.

Sorry guys, you have a long way to go if someone can’t ego surf their own website from your engine.
