Tag: <span>Top Ten</span>

Thank you for your kind comments to the previous post (‘for’ the previous post? Hmmm what is the correct term?)

Thankfully, this blog isn’t a chore, I wouldn’t give it up for the world. I think I’ve just been spending a little too much time receiving radiation from a computer screen over the past few weeks.

However that’ll change as tonight (fanfare please!) the third season of 24 starts on Sky One!!! Woo, and most definitely, yay!

Of course I’ve seen the first five episodes already… and as it’s no longer on the BBC I’m guessing the followup show won’t be “Pure 24” but “American’s Worst Dressed Celebrity Police Crashes” (hosted by Kirsty Gallacher – hey I’ve not mentioned her in a while… yup, just checked, she’s still in my Top Ten referrers from Google right in front of David Gallagher… not helping her am I… now what as I saying?). Ohhh yes, Pure 24, the post 24 … errr… chat show? A couple of Y-list celebrities discuss, along with a knowledgeable studio audience, the latest episode. A constant source of “ohh I didn’t think of that” type revelations that made watching the next episode all the more interesting.

Anyway, having seen the first few episodes I can thoroughly recommend that you watch/record this one. Yes it can be far-fetched, but wait until the twists start, and the ‘looks’ (sorry, you need to be a fan to know what that means). Episode 4 or 5 I think is the first “OOOHHHHHH” moment. Well worth it too.

And that’s got me thinking. I’m aware that I should’ve watched Six Feet Under, and West Wing. I don’t like Buffy or Angel. Smallville and Charmed are my wife’s reason to live (and I enjoy Smallville too… ohh ok and Charmed is babe-lific), but what else should we be watching?

Doesn’t have to be American, or even fictitious, we both enjoy Grand Designs for example (did you see it last night, mad they are, mad!!).

So, I’m an alien, just arrived on Earth, I’ve been monitoring a few TV signals and I’m wondering what the best bits are?

Also: Trackbacks enabled. Give em a whirl.
AND: I’ve now got “Calling occupants of interplanetary craft” in my head. Could be worse I guess.

OK not really, I’m just being a link whore I guess, but I’m guessing that everyone who has referrer logs looks at them more than once a week. Right? And you look at how many times a certain site has sent someone your way.. right?
OK, so maybe it’s just me.

Either way I thought it might be interesting to list my Top Ten referrers (direct sites only, not Google or GBlogs recently updated list). So without further ado, or further waffling by me to make myself feel better..

The Top 10 Referrers to SomeTHiNG…
1. Pinky
2. Jennie
3. Gert
4. David
5. Jenny
6. Vaughan
7. Jenny
8. Lynn
9. Stuart
10. Brian

Lurking on the fringes of the top 10: Dan, Mike, Owen, Jo, Ames, Richard, and Stuart.

Now obviously there are mitigating circumstances for these rankings, and I hope no-one gets peeved. I’m just chuffed that over 10 people actually link to my little site!

Top Ten Signs Your Weblog Might Suck.

Sex loses net appeal (via Hydragenic) “Some analysts believe that searching for porn has decreased simply because there is no need to look for it these days.” Alternatively because everyone now knows the good site and has a list of bookmarks as long as their arm. Obviously I’m guessing here…

It is true though, I’ll happily plead guilty to “jump[ing] on and off the web search engines in little spurts, many times on the same topic”. I’ve commented here about the effect the Internet has on shortening attention spans. But if those little spurts mean I absorb information better then surely it’s a god thing. We’ve all seen the graph that shows how attention drops after the first 15-20mins of a training course.

Note to self: where is the new logo?

Mainstream interest in blogs. Interesting take on the recent upsurge of interest in blogging. Thing is I’m never sure how large a piece of salt to take with Neale…
