Robo-Geisha is one crazy movie +

Bit NSFW. Well, I’ve never been one to shy away from crazy Japanese cult movies. As a matter of fact, I didn’t think I would find one that topped Tokyo Gore Police. Silly me. Leave it to the minds that created Machine Girl and Tokyo Gore Police to team up and create this over the […]

A 3 foot horror story +

The bathroom in many homes is a very lonely room. You only visit it when you need something, and not for the pleasant atmosphere the room provides. So is it really hard to believe that the lonely bathrooms around the world holds a deep seated grudge for the humans that use it? I think not. […]

A real Hello Kitty +

If you are reading this website right now, I would find it very hard for you to not know what Hello Kitty is. One could argue that it is one of the most well known Japanese brands right up there with Honda and Sony. This video has nothing to do with Hello Kitty other than […]

Kids vs Zombies +

So, Andrea subliminally tricked me into purchasing Left 4 Dead on Steam, and I have been enjoying playing it for the past few days now. Funnily enough, I have to play Louis everytime I play online because well… my real name is Louis and I’m African-American. You may be wondering what zombies have to do […]

Ichi the Killer Bento +

Gore movies are one of my many favorites from Japan. The last one I watched was Tokyo Gore Police a few months ago. What can I say about that besides it was unbelievably gory… As for the actual story, I think I could of written something better as weekend homework in the 4th grade. But […]

Naoto Fukasawa’s Fruit Juice +

They say that the way food or drinks look plays a major influence on how well we like it. I would have to agree. These are some awesome fruit juice packaging from Industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa. Looking at the strawberry box, it looks as if the packaging may even feel like the specific fruit it […]

Mini Nikon SLR in Japanese candy +

Gilco is one of Japan’s oldest candy companies, and is home to the popular Glico caramel candy as well as the legendary Pocky. For about 80 years now, inside the Glico caramel candy boxes there is a small toy called “Omake of Glico” (Small gift of Glico). It started off as little toys kids would […]

Space Invaders Bank +

Tomy has done it again. If you are old enough to remember space invaders, this functioning bank will trigger your├é┬ánostalgia├é┬áreflex. Personally I remember the game, but I’m too young to remember the actual table. We did have a functioning Atari when I was a child though. Ah. Memories.

May 2008 stats for +

May seems to have flown by this year. It was a busy month for me offline. I went to visit my family in St. Thomas at the beginning of the month for a week. And I have been hard at work on my new website that’s going to detail some of my traffic and SEO techniques for building blogs into popular and successful sites. With those two things taken up most of my time, I haven’t had the time to changes a few things here on However I am prioritizing and I am finishing up a few things here before I begin to dive back into my other projects.

May 2008 Stats: WordPress Stats

With that said, I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that May was the first month I didn’t double my traffic. 200,000 pageviews was my goal for May. However I knew from the beginning that it was an unrealistic goal. Still, the good news is that I had my best month so far!

May saw a total of 125,827 pageviews, with around 98,743 unique visitors (uniques from AWStats, pageviews from WordPress Stats) My Alexa rating has dropped dramatically’s from last month’s 132,538. My current Alexa traffic rank is 68,586. And from the below stats, I can expect to drop even more by the next update. My Feedburner readers have also increased. Last month I was at 190 readers. As I write this now, I am at 259.

Thanks to all of my new and faithful readers for making May the best month yet on! I don’t expect as many interruptions in June as I had in May, so I know I will be closer to hitting that 200,000 pageview goal.

One new stats program that has totally replaced the usefulness of Google Analytics is Woopra. That’s my daily stats program that I have running 24/7 in my system tray. If you have never heard of Woopra, prepared to be amazed when you check out their website. I can’t even begin to know where to start with what Woopra offers. So here’s a video that explains it pretty well. It’s still in beta, and they are inviting people regularly. Sign up for an account, and add your site. You should be in the beta in no time.

    Stumble is tough in that you can’t post too many of your own articles.

    wow, congrats! wonder when will I get that much traffic ? >_< btw, I’m surprised that your biggest traffic is from StumbleUpon since I rarely get traffic from there. Hmm, maybe because I rarely post something interesting ? ^^;

    Thanks! While this month really doesn’t show it, because I was out of town / busy for most of it, is always a big traffic source for me. Submit all your interesting posts to the Anime category, or Japan (depending on what it is). Otaku.FM also has been steadily climbing my referrer list. 2 great sources for anime/otaku type sites.

    Congratulations! Maybe someday I’ll be able to claim such high traffic, but as someone just starting out with a new blog I’m happy if I get up to 30 a day lol ^o^
