Mystery Solved


Yesterday morning, I looked at my sitemeter and discovered that by late morning, I already had more hits on my blog than I normally get in a day. I wondered what was going on. I looked on Sitemeter and discovered that all the hits were coming from http://www.greendayauthority.com/, a Green Day fan site. The Foxboro Hot Tubs are a side project by a couple of Green Day members. They recorded the song "Ruby Room," about a great punk bar in East Oakland that I've been known to frequent with my good friend Viktor Zeitgeist.

They had a link to a post about me and my friend Viktor Zeitgeist almost getting thrown out of the Ruby Room. Apparently they liked my description of the Ruby Room as "a great establishment, full of punk rockers, bikers and other assorted riff-raff."

We include ourselves, of course, in the "riff-raff" category.

Cool! I love seeing where all the weird hits are coming from all of a sudden, although I generally always suspect I was inadvertently talking porn in Serbian or something.

Isn't that fun?! The Chicagoist linked to one of my posts and I ended up with hundreds of hits. I think I might have even gotten a couple of new readers.

Riff-raff authority dot com has a certain riff-raffy goodness to it. Cool.

I am a first time viewer of your blog as well...though I was not directed here by a green day site. LOL
