Thank you, Billy Zabka

Blogging host WordPress just crunched my 2010 numbers:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 110,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 5 days for that many people to see it.

That’s good to hear, though I’m sure those Louvre visitors came away underwhelmed.

Your busiest day of the year was January 5th with 966 views. The most popular post that day was Cap du jour, 80s pin-up edition.

The subject of that post? Quintessential 80s mean girl Billy Zabka, who, surprisingly enough, played a character named Chas only once. His first film role was in “Valley Girl” as “Boy helping with prom decorations.”

the best of the malcontent

today on the malcontent

Busier than usual: Legitimate concerns over the new breast cancer guidelines; Sarah Palin makes me feel “Grimey”; A prayer vigil at a strip club; Clint Eastwood blasts America; Australia assails Scientology; Better tardy than silent: Newsweek addresses the perpetuation of queer stereotypes; Palin courts Beck, makes my head explode; On Communism and cuckoos.

“hee haw” alum LuLu reads the malcontent, and so should you

My first celebrity endorsement:

hey, I am LuLu Roman’s manager and we are just curious. We came across your site and saw your mention of LuLu. What does the “neither of ‘em could hold LuLu Roman’s girdle”comment mean?

She thinks it is terribly funny, but we’d like to know.

By the way, congrats on the weight loss, LuLu. Looking good!

UPDATE: Here’s the clip I referenced in my comment about LuLu’s girdle:
