It seems the phenomenon that is 'Cal Week' is real. Not something cooked up by a corporate Madison Avenue PR Firm. For some reason beyond reason the hits just keep on coming.
I haven't brought up my 'numbers' in a long time because I have come to believe that Google Analytics is how 'the man' keeps a brother 'down'.
You can go crazy when you lose one follower and have no idea how they left or why. Rarely do you ever find out and when you do you really don't want to know the reason as much as you think you might.
It is always something petty like you being a Nazi war criminal or you highlight the achievements of Nazi war criminals or you highlight boobs or you show Nazi war criminals with boobs. It's insane. That would have made me minus 25 years old when I first joined the Hitler Youth or the girl's division of the Hitler Youth. It's not logical.
I have long suspected that the reason for the lose was alien abduction not through space but through TIME. Let that rattle around in your melon for a bit. How DID Velociraptor get a taste for human anyways? They were never on the Ark. Anyways, my number have been consistently between 600 to 700 visits a day for the past two months. Who cares? I can't figure out the voodoo they use to cook the numbers anyway. You might as well have my hard drive dispense a jelly pellet everytime a person visits and I can save those in a jar and enjoy them at the end of the day. That I can understand.
Now yesterday the numbers jumped from 649 to 994 visits and I am six people from follower 200.
The legend that is 'Cal Week' continues it's unstoppable march to Sunday when I expect to be eaten by a time travelling Nazi Velociraptor that may or may not have boobs. You won't forgive yourself if you miss it.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
