It’s time once again for that never-ending saga known as The Top 20 Sites From Which Nice People Came To Look At The Monkey In The Window™
This month’s opportunity to have some fun with those who send me traffic finds me all a-twitter over the new Return of the King trailer. We saw it as it should be seen – in the theater – on Saturday night. I’m still stunned.
