In the early months of 2017 I did a series of monthly posts that focussed on small speaking parts, minor characters who had major affects on narrative and character actors who became famous in their own right. I have long been meaning go back and expand on the idea of these posts which mostly collated information from IMDB, my own reflections and quick searches throughout the internet. Hopefully 2019 will see some movement in this regard. In the meantime I am encouraged by the fact that these post continue to get more views than any of my other ones for the most part. Most popular of these is the post about John B. Destry’s appearance in the 1990s Adam Sandler comedy hit Happy Gilmore.
A few stats for those who love stats, yes this post hit 2,5000 views this month having been originally published 18JUN2017.
A few stats just cause stats, the post published 18JUN2017 had 28 views in the month of June and had accumulated 112 views by the end of that year. A year after publication in the month of June 2018 it garnered 74 views, about the monthly average at that point. The next month the post peaked with 703 views and an average per day of 22 views. While there has been a decline since the post is still getting a monthly amount of views in the triple digits. I don’t know if I’ll keep doing posts like these, it seems fairly redundant and self-congratulatory. It is nice though to think people are out there enjoying my posts and such milestones don’t happen often.
Thank you once again to all my readers far and wide and to John B. Destry for living the dream and giving such a memorable performance in Happy Gilmore.
