Well, my article yesterday about inappropriate Star Wars items hit WordPress’ news page as well as Neatorama’s page. I’m getting lots of positive reaction to it. Glad everyone liked it.  I’ll tell you what, I haven’t seen this much traffic since I was linked by Time muthaf’n magazine almost a year ago.  That’s right, I said TIME MUTHAF’N MAGAZINE.

Wow, now that I look at it, I was linked by Time Magazine a year ago tomorrow. Spooky.  Click the earlier links or my Time Magazine cover to see how I was linked by Time muthaf’n Magazine.

Anyway, it’s funny because the Star Wars article yesterday was just supposed to be a filler article this week to get me through to the beginning of AWESOME-tober-fest next week.  Now it’s all blowin’ up and stuff.  It’s pretty awesome to get this kinda reaction to something I wrote.  So thank you guys.

Oh, for those just joining us, AWESOME-tober-fest is my Halloween celebration and it’s happening the entire month of October.  So you’ve picked a good time to join us here at the Cavalcade.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.  AWESOME-tober-fest starts next week.

Okay, I noticed a serious jump in my blog stats the other day and I took a look to see what the hell just happened.  Looking at my page views I see this:

A huge amount of traffic was being sent by an outside link to my article about failed McDonald’s sandwiches: The Golden Archives.  This article usually gets some hits but it was blowin’ up, yo, sur-iously.  So I clicked in to find the sites that link to it and I noticed this.

The most hits were coming from time.com. I was like, “Time.com? WTF? Not THE Time.com?” Yes, THE Time.com. I clicked the link and was greeted with an article on Time.com listing the top 50 Authentic American Experiences. Surprisingly, my blog is NOT one of the 50 Authentic American experiences.   I don’t know why.  How much more AMERICAN, or more of an EXPERIENCE, can this blog be?  And by American, I obviously mean AWESOME.  Here’s the page in question.

Within this article they are discussing the Big Mac Museum, which I would agree is an authentic American experience. In the very first sentence Time friggin’ Magazine (I say again…WHAT. UP.) sees fit to link to my blog.

Check out the Hula Burger link. That goes to my Golden Archives article here. How about that, sixth grade English teacher who said I wrote like a blind second grader? HOW YOU LIKE ME NOW?! Actually, my sixth grade English teacher didn’t say that, but she did throw a shoe across the room at a classmate. That is true. But she didn’t say I wrote like a blind second grader…I think she said epileptic first grader. But that’s beside the point because I can now bill myself as if I won an Academy Award. Like Academy Award Winner Sir Anthony Hopkins. I can now call myself Time Magazine referenced Sir Paxton Holley. Well, I added the Sir, but I have no problems going to jolly Olde England for the knighting ceremony. I’ll even pay for my own flight. You hear me Queen Mother? Hello?
