To 2013



Dogbane with pulp painting / silkscreen demo on denim (yes, photo is me, ‘ 90s)

You didn’t think I’d head into the new year without an odd search engine terms roundup, did you?  Actually, this year, though there were more searches and more terms than ever, they were largely spot-on: people came looking for me; for artist and writer friends and for places, shows, classes and events I’ve mentioned; for tools, machinery, fibers and techniques; and there were an unprecedented number of searches for specific artworks (a pleasingly wide range of titles, too).  There were less odd searches than ever before, so I’ve only chosen a mere 21. My biggest blogging surprise of 2012 came when WP added ‘views by country’ to our stats on February 25; people from 72 different countries have checked in since: wondrous!

  1. or, HOOO RAY! oh my god, i love those (i had forgotten you do this!) and am wondering about ‘bound with onions’ and the eternal question: why does my FEOT vibrate? happy new year melissa.

  2. Happy new year to you both and HOO RAY HOO! (My second favorite was Lupe Lupe Lupe Dog, because that’s exactly how I greet her).

  3. As always, the round-up is hilarious, which is why I’ve shamelessly stolen it. 🙂 My two weirdest ones last year were “7 hand snake” and “pith-a-me”: who *are* these people?
