What is it with Andre the Giant?
That little icon at the bottom of this blog lets me see roughly how many people end up at this site. From time to time, it also reveals what Google searches end up here. A few months ago I thought it might've been a temporary oddity, but looking back, it appears to be a solid thing. People seem to come here in hopes of learning about:
- Those ubiquitous Andre the Giant has a Posse stickers
- The contemporary artist Dan Flavin
- The kid who did wild breakdancing at some talent show years ago
- The poet Elizabeth Bishop
