Playing The Numbers Game
I received some shocking news in my blog overview that’s provided to me by WordPress today. If all goes well and the proverbial creek doesn’t rise (mid-Americans will get the idiom), by this time next week my humble little blog will have been seen by one quarter of a million sets of eyes.
Or perhaps it could be fewer eyes if Sandy Dennis, Sammy Davis Jr., or Mosche Dayan were representative of most of the viewing group.
And, we need to consider that some of that crowd are repeat offenders, aka people that I’ve repeatedly offended, so that might skew the numbers.
Anyway, my thanks to the (+/-) 250,000 of you, or worst case, to the one person who has made it an obsession to visit early and very, very often.
Full disclosure: My first time on a movie set (“Mr. Sycamore”) was when I visited a friend that was the production sound mixer, and I ended up flat on my belly on the roof and partially hanging over the eave to hold a microphone over two actors that were out of reach of the regular boom operator. One of the actors was Sandy Dennis.
