  • Is anybody else watching Lost all over again?

    I am getting sucked back into Lost on G4, watched the first two eps yesterday on my dvr. That show debuted in September 2004 right around the time my mom was in the hospital for a week with her broken hip, and wasn't long after that I was going through the bankruptcy stuff with my dad and then the bell's palsy, which got so bad it affected my brain. No wonder I couldn't get into it back then. So I feel like I'm getting a second chance to cycle back around through those years and pull myself back together. Me and Lost are on a journey, and this is all part of the whole me I'm going to wind up with. I've been fragmented too long. 8 years of me to patch back up. I spent my 40's plunging slowly into epic face palm starting with a death in the family at the beginning of '04, and by the middle of '07 I couldn't even walk due to back injury, '08 was months of recovery from a nasty CMV infection in my liver and wound up with total disability, '09 was a medication nightmare, and then my mom died.  I can't even talk about 2010 up through this year yet, with all the crazy new food allergies being the least of my problems.
    My 50's need to be about my rebirth, like a phoenix.  Like Lost...
    I saw the sixth season when it aired, so going back and seeing the very first season all over is like full circle, all those hints they made, it all makes sense now.  I hope life is like that.  I want it all to make sense, like the backgammon game John set up on the beach.

  • Dear Fortuna

    Thank you for the visit, comment and subscription. I always find it neat (yes, I use the word neat in "real life" too) when I find similar Xangans like myself who have been "here" for a long time and are still active (somewhat active in my case) with their blogging.

    I enjoyed my 50s possibly more than any decade previous. I'm fast approaching the big 6-0 now. I wish you the best of luck. From what I see just in this entry, you, like a lot of us, have suffered and have had your share of life problems. (I like the little "get a life app" at the top of your blog!)

    Lost is a grand series, but sort of ends badly. My favorite series to watch straight all the way through (sort of like reading a book) are Six Feet Under and Friday Night Lights. Both have a beginning, middle and end.

    I'm currently watching True Blood from the beginning again. I've been dong this since the dawn of home video. I think the first series I didn't watch as it aired, but taped the episodes, and then started from 1 and watched one right after the other was L.A. Law back in the 80s.

  • @baldmike2004 - Thanx!  I missed a lot of tv during kids and am kind of disappointed in the direction tv has gone the last few years.  That or I've changed...

web stats

My first tracker was installed in 2004 and broke several times before moving to a new server, which lost a few months of stats, and then Xanga moved to new servers and I lost more stats for more months before the page came back up, so I've lost a total of about two years' worth of stats. The second was installed 2-22-14 and is considered very conservative by business owners who use analytics, which itself is very conservative, estimates being that roughly one third to one half of hits by real live people aren't even counted, most likely due to javascript discrepancies. Actual hits on several posts here are in the thousands now, and the Lexx Index in the ten thousands. I've got pingbacks turned off, so spam isn't counted at all within the Xanga internal tracker, and most direct post hits can be correlated to my real time linking activity on twitter and other social media. When I did Google Analytics beta testing I got to see how search engine performance compares to tracking. I believe live feed linking sources to various social medias are key to a future where search engines are more about performance than cataloging, which has been confirmed to me by coders who create bot algorithms as I was beta testing paper.li. I've fought hard through redundant age-old stacks to make my way to the google front lines again, so my Lexx work shows up faster on Chrome searches now. This has been a really interesting ride. At any rate, my point is, I can still go back 6 years on my original tracker and I can still see that in 2013 just before the last big blog server move, I was getting traffic like this (and since then, the tracker may have been abandoned, we can't tell). Click the thumbnail to see full size.

My original tracker also still lets me see the latest 500 visitors on a map. I once counted over 80 countries among the total visits. You guys are not alone. Click the map to see it better.

Besides Lexx, the most common search phrases that bring new visitors here are variations on 'huge spaceship'. The most seen post from a phrase search is How Big is the Lexx? My biggest Lexx referrer is Lexx Domain. Most of page views per person count comes from the Lexx tag on Tumblr. Visitors who stay the longest come through URLOpener and are pinged through the Google translator server in Mountain View, CA.
