You love me, you really love me

Or maybe not.

I came home from Tuesday night's screening of LORDS OF DOGTOWN, and in between monitoring my fantasy baseball team and going through e-mail, I checked my site traffic report. My eyes nearly popped out of my skull when I saw that the number of visitors and pageloads had passed my previous daily record by a substantial margin. Was I the unknowing beneficiary of a link on a prominent site? Had word made its way around that this blog was worth reading?

Or maybe my list of reviews, which includes Mira Nair's VANITY FAIR and the 70s porn film documentary INSIDE DEEP THROAT, made for a fortuitous combination of words for those using search engines to locate news about a glossy periodical's reveal of a certain Watergate informant.

A hit is a hit is a hit, and I'm glad to have them all. (It's even netted ad clickthroughs amounting to nineteen cents in my Google AdSense account. Ch-ching!) So, if you're new to the Reel Times blog, please feel free to look around. If you're a regular visitor, thanks for stopping by. I'll try to write something more meaningful next time.


  1. Yeah, I'm sure all the traffic my site gets ventured on over to your blog via the link I put up. You can thank me later for both of them. Just kidding.

  2. I've had at least one hit from your site, no joke. It's much appreciated.

    What's weird is that this blog is the first result for a search for "vanity fair deep throat" yet it doesn't show up at all when I Google those terms. (One of my brothers did it and sent me screen capture evidence to prove it.)
