Padding The Stats: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Go to a Phish Show

I’ll admit it.  I love stats.  One of my favorite things about this whole blog thing is that I get to see how many people visit my page each day.  Not only that, but it shows me where most of the clicks come from.  After only a few short weeks of life, my page is now searchable on the Interwebs.  I received my first Search Engine hit the other day.  Someone in Singapore entered in his Yahoo! search bar – “I feel feeling.”  I have no idea what the hell they could have been searching for, but it directed them to my first ever post.   

I started thinking about a way to get the most readers with the least amount of work.  That’s kind of how I roll – I like to work smarter, not harder.  And honestly, I’m not very smart.  But today I am a genius.  To steal a line from my other blog inspiration, “that’s right kids”  JUSTIN BIEBER AND SELENA GOMEZ went to a Phish concert last week in Long Beach, California.  And he like, totally Tweeted about it on the Twitter.


I can’t wait to see how many hits those two names get me in the next couple of days and weeks.  A bunch of Tweens are going to be searching for more info on their favorite heartthrob, but instead they will get directed here to my blog.  Ha – the joke is on you 13 year old girl from the midwest!  No Justin Bieber content here. 

Alright, maybe just one picture from backstage.


OMG – Biebs (That should get me at least 6 clicks from Google) and Selena!!  Also known as Jelena (worst Hollywood couple nickname ever).  According to Hollywood insiders – and a bunch of dirty hippies at the Phish show, they were throwing glowticks during the second set.  Glowsticks wars have been a normal scene at Phish shows for the past 15 years.  When Justin Bieber was only 3 years old, I was at the Great Went listening to Phish play “Harry Hood” in complete darkness while thousands of glowsticks were launched into the air for the first time.  A Glowstick War was born!  It was spontaneous, it was beautiful, it was painful at times – but it was a moment I will never forget.

Thank you Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez for helping me remember my first Phish glowstick war – and more importantly, for padding my stats.

I Feel the Feeling I Forgot

The first thing that you need to know about me is that I don’t have a very good memory.  A lifetime of playing contact sports and sustaining multiple concussions has forced me to use specific calendar dates to remember where I was, what I was doing and who I was with for the past 20 years of my life. 

Luckily for me, but unfortunately for my Wife – I am a fan of a band called Phish.  Phish’s fans are the most passionate fans you can ever imagine.  And by passionate, I mean completely obsessed.  Every concert the band has performed has been meticulously documented and every Date, Venue, and Song is available online in researchable form.  On top of that, there is a Fan Site available for you to select every show that you have attended, and you can view your own personal stats.  My personal stats contain 96 concerts worth of useless information.

Thanks to this website  – I remember stuff.   It is a strange phenomenon how I use these concerts to relate to my real life.  In an attempt to remember what I have already forgotten I will be using this blog as my new tool to create an online diary of memories, present-day endeavors and impending adventures.
