“Tomorrow will be more hopeful than this awful
piece of time we call today.”
~ Suzanne Collins (The Hunger Games)
Midway through MOVIE MAY MADNESS things have been overall disappointing. Godzilla was fun in a niche way (unfortunately not really my niche), but Neighbors and AMS 2 tanked. I’m hoping a strong finish with X-Men and Maleficent will get the year at the movies going. Right now: it’s The LEGO Movie and Cap 2 and then a ginormous chasm between them and the rest of the field. The fall is particularly weak too, so I’m already looking ahead to next year and Episode VII, myself (though I am looking forward to Guardians and The Hobbit and a few others).
Killing Time milestones this week: The site roared passed 83,000 hits and is on track to be our biggest month ever. Thank you to everyone who has stopped by and even more so for those that comment and take part in the discussion. I really appreciate you guys more than you can know. Combining all the different ways you can follow KT, we passed 1,000 followers this week and that just blows my mind. Thank you for coming along for the ride. Truly.
We did get another new country this week (number #170 for those scoring at home)! French Polynesia pwned Greenland and joined the Killing Time Family of Nations (not a thing) and as is tradition, let’s slap a flag up on the screen for them!
The most viewed post of the week was ….sigh….The Despicable Me 2 Review. Again. Seriously. Why? Why? Why does this one article have double the hits of the second highest scoring article in the history of the site? WHAT DID I DO SO RIGHT THAT ONCE!?!
