2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

Madison Square Garden can seat 20,000 people for a concert. This blog was viewed about 64,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Madison Square Garden, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

    Oh my! Looks like I win the Blabber Mouth of the Year Award… AGAIN! And by a wide margin over Derekthered, aka HT The Heretick, at that! And Phlogger? Where have you gone my Phlogger?

    Where do I even begin to thank all those who have contributed to my sometimes (often, actually) drunken loquaciousness? Let me see now, there was Barack Obama, otherwise known as Bush III (or should that be Cheney II?), and his complete and hopefully FINAL discrediting of the liberal “brand” in American politics; there was Wall St, K Street, and Pennsylvania Avenue (with a tip of the hat to 1st St SE), aka the unholy triumvirate, from where ObamaCare, the continuing escalation of the “War on(of) Terror”, Bailouts for Bankers, and QE Infinity et al were first spawned; there was of course the Pentagon and the “national defense” community it so dysfunctionally represents, selling its soldiers to all interests foreign or domestic, one man/woman at a time; there were AGW deniers in full throat all around, unified in their commitment to squandering any chance out of what is already pretty much a hopeless situation; and SO MUCH more!

    But seriously folks. Sandy’s done a great service to us all by hosting this blog, although not necessarily to YOU all by letting me post so much of my extemporaneous bullshit. My apologies for that, but hey, WTF! It’s a new year, and SO MUCH dysfunction out there remains to be commented on. And NSA/CIA/FBI/ATF/KKK/WTF or not, they haven’t shut us down yet, so why not give it another go for 2014? I’m down if you all are.

    I remain as ever,

    OK, Kulturcritics, here’s something GENUINELY NEW (ok, it’s borrowed, but isn’t everything?)!

    Jackson Browne’s Lives in the Balance performed by Woodstock’s (among others) Richie Havens. True as it ever was. A SPIRITED PERFORMANCE!!! Check it out:
