neonvincent: For posts about food and cooking (All your bouillabaisse are belong to us)

Over at my main blog, I wished my readers a...

Happy National Liqueur Day! I could have also wished my readers a Happy National Dictionary Day or a Happy National Department Store Day when I wanted to take a break from recapping the News and Documentary Emmy winners, but I decided to do something easy and familiar. If my readers wish to celebrate those other days instead, they can go right ahead.

I'll wish my readers here a Happy National Dictionary Day and a Happy Happy National Department Store Day anyway.

Unfortunately, I didn't really know what I was doing, so I gave it the wrong name.  It's [syndicated profile] neonvincent_feed  instead of Crazy Eddie's Motie News.  Sigh.  I tried to change the name by entering the URL again and it just sent me back to the already existing feed instead of letting me set up a new one.  Live and learn.  At least it exists and any of you can subscribe to it.

National Fossil Day

Today is National Fossil Day, exactly the kind of holiday I'd celebrate at Crazy Eddie's Motie News except that I'm in the middle of featuring the News and Documentary Emmy winners in science, space, and medicine. Maybe next year. So, I'm observing it here by sharing a video I'll get around to posting at the main blog eventually, An Asteroid Didn’t Kill the Dinosaurs, Here’s a New Theory About What Did from Seeker.


Actually, the asteroid did kill the dinosaurs, just much more indirectly than originally thought.

Four years ago, I wrote Finally, a Ringworld movie!
That's the one in which I repeated my twenty-year-old grousing about how I wrote an adventure for Chaosium's Ringworld table-top RPG, but lost all that effort because the movie rights to the book were sold and the movie production company asserted that they had the game rights, too. To add insult to injury, there was no movie. Apparently, that will change, as SyFy announced that they will develop the book into a four-hour miniseries.
The good news was that it became one of the two most read posts of that year. The bad news is that no "Ringworld" movie or miniseries came of it.

Not all is lost, as io9 reported this week Amazon Is Developing a Bonanza of Genre Titles: Ringworld, Snow Crash, and Lazarus.
Amazon just announced a virtual land grab of genre titles that it’s putting into development: Larry Niven’s scifi classic Ringworld; Neal Stephenson’s cult classic Snow Crash; and Greg Rucka’s acclaimed comic Lazarus. In a perfect world, we could be seeing all three made into drama series.

As Deadline reports, the announcement comes as the streaming network is hoping to land a “big-scope genre drama series in the mold of Game Of Thrones and The Walking Dead.” There aren’t too many details yet, but the standout points include: the Ringworld project will likely draw not just from Niven’s 1970 original, but other books in the series; Rucka will be adapting Lazarus himself from page to screen; and Snow Crash will be co-produced by Joe Cornish, who at one time had the project on his own feature-directing slate.
I'm a lot more confident in Amazon pulling off "Ringworld" than I was about SyFy, so I'm looking forward to it. The other project I want to see is "Snow Crash." It may not be the best of Stephenson's novels, but it is the best-known and it's a lot of fun. Here's to both of them reaching the small screen before the decade is out!

I've been following ICP's travails with the FBI declaring their fans a gang since 2012 with updates here and here.  Normally, I'd post this at Crazy Eddie's Motie News, but I posted Goodbye, Cassini! today instead.  I might follow up with the results of the march here or at my main blog later.

Now, I'm done with saving comments -- at least until I fix the laptop.

I was talking about Trump and the election more than tww years ago! )

I've been missing from blogging because I've been hospitalized for diabetes and Grave's disease.  I'm home now, but I'm sharing the above photo from the hospital, a courtyard with fake (but beautiful and very convincing) maple trees until I have more to write about my experience.  In the meantime, have a music video.


An instrumental cover of this song is also on the "Westworld" soundtrack, which I might share later as well.

Happy Labor Day and Happy National Wildlife Day! Click on the link in the salutation for my thoughts on both holidays. Instead of writing about the day here, I'll post something a little more meta. I included three title sequences along with the theme songs at Crazy Eddie's Motie News in 'Westworld' leads drama series with 22 Emmy nominations, followed by 'Stranger Things' with 19 and 'The Handmaid's Tale' with 13 and "House of Cards" leads contemporary American political dramas with six nominations. I'll share them behind the cut. First, here's Opening Credits: How TV's Title Sequences Grew Up | WIRED.

The return of the bot traffic, which began on July 17th, ended on August 17th. That was enough to push my page views to 78,000+ over the 30-day period. The blog also passed 1,200,000 page views during the month. It's also the second month to pass 60,000 page views per month, the other being April 2017. It ended up setting a new record of 61,841 page views. However, there were only 27 comments.

Most read, liked, saved, and retweeted for last month behind the cut. )

I said I'd post some saved links today. Are they from November 2015? Hardly. They are from this month.

I'm posting about National Presidential Joke Day both here and at Crazy Eddie's Motie News. There, the post was SNL mocks Trump for Presidential Joke Day. Here, it's Colbert saying Stephen Doesn't Want The Earth To Blow Up.


As a homeowner and inhabitant of the planet, Stephen is really hoping Earth continues to be.
Doomer though I am, I'm with Colbert. I may repost this at Crazy Eddie's Motie News on Tuesday, after I post the worksheet for "Treasures of the Earth: Power" that I promised to post three weeks ago, the winners for Dramatic Presentation at the Hugo Awards, and the winners of the Teen Choice Awards.

Normally, I'd post something else today and post the saved comments tomorrow. However, National Day Calendar says tomorrow is National Presidential Joke Day, so I moved tomorrow's planned post to today to clear out tomorrow. Good lord, how meta!

Four comments from Kunstler's blog, all mentioning the election. )

Harry Potter's birthday


Since I posted July's saved comments yesterday, I have today free to do something not related to my blogging and commenting life elsewhere. WXYZ provided me that something yesterday with On Harry Potter's birthday, a reminder: Daniel Radcliffe is a Red Wings fan.


After 28 years of living here, I've learned that Detroit media will celebrate any connection with Detroit.

For some reason, I wanted to write comments on zombies this month.

Yesterday, I wrote that I was done with posting the raw statistics from past months at Crazy Eddie's Motie News. That's not yet the case with the saved comments. I plan on posting those through next month with the saved comments from this month interrupting the sequence on or shortly after August 1st. I have up to 15 still to go.

By the way, if one of the comments below looks familiar, it's because I recycled most of it into The Archdruid and I talk drum corps.

Six comments from Greer's and Kunstler's blogs with Kustler's mostly about the election. )

This is the last post I will make sharing the raw data about the top posts of past months, as I have posted summaries of all the rest at Crazy Eddie's Motie News, ending with Best August so far and other monthly meta. I will continue to post the monthly summaries of future months here, which means the July summary should appear here on or after August 2nd. I plan on resuming my monthly summary posts at Crazy Eddie's Motie News in October, where they will be a by-product of a strategy to increase page views that I suspended last October but will probably need to revive in the fall.

Enough meta. Here are the introduction, which got to the first draft stage, and the data.

September 2016 saw 18,069 page views and 66 comments for 30 posts over 30 days. Those stats translate into 602.3 page views per day and per post and 2.2 comments per post and per day. The total, per day, and per post page view numbers were all records for September, as were the comments per post. In addition, the blog passed 700,000 page views early in the month. Since the blog passed 500,000 page views during September of last year, it's on pace for 200,000 page views per year.
