In a little over 2 months, it will be the 2 yr anniversary since I started using Google Analytics to track my websites stats. Unfortunately, some pretty big traffic days were not recorded prior to the addition of that service from the Twilight days...but, that aside...heres a look at what has been popular in making my site semi-popular for some reason.

Last week I met Freddy Kreuger in Vancouver (and no, I am not talking about Human Target star Jackie Earle Haley...whom I also met in the past week oddly enough) while he was in town to film a guest star role on Supernatural.
Robert Englund was in Vancouver to play a doctor that ... errr.. ok, you really dont want to know, right??
So anyways, Mr Englund talked candidly about several things, including what I caught on short video blurb. This was primarily about who he DID work with, and who his wife has a crush on.
He also talked at length with us about the type of pens & markers he prefered for specific items, radio interviews he did, and even why he felt he had to get to the security line up early. Unfortunately, I didnt know Robert would be such an interesting soundbite machine, or I woulda taped our whole conversation..
But, here is a small tidbit of what the star of the A Nightmare On Elm Street franchise had to say.
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
