Your Morning Rock – April 16th, 2009 Thursday, April 16, 2009

Some time in the middle of the night, we hit a milestone here at DeadOn – we cracked the one million mark on page views. It’s an arbitrary celebration, but it feels big to me. Mostly I’m proud of the way we’ve reached 1,000,000 – we’ve never been link whores, we don’t beg other bloggers to link to us, we’ve just kinda fallen into it. If you build it, they will come. Our MTV recaps (especially The Hills…) have been the big traffic driver over the past year, but on occasion our other features have brought in some eyes. So, thanks to the nearly thirty people who have contributed a post or two over the past two plus years and a big thanks to the 1,000,000 plus computer screens that have been tortured with the task of loading our little internets home.

So, uh, here’s one of the most underrated songs of the 90s in celebration.

Well done, all – including those who have since gone on to other things. I’m glad the “I Spent Money on This?” posts could contribute approximately ten of those 1,000,000 eyeballs.

And how many people would be shocked Semisonic had a song besides “Closing Time?” I mean, probably not many that read this, but in general?

Thanks to everyone that comes by. I love all of you.

Congratulations gang!

JB, they are one of the many fine bands that were pigeonholed by having that ONE BIG SONG. All three Semisonic albums are solid the whole way through. At least Dan Wilson is getting some due as a songwriter for hire these day and the drummer wrote a pretty great book about their rise and fall to fame.

I’m proud of you guys! I still have a post from 2 years ago that *needs* to see the light of day. I’m resolving to finish it and it will be a celebratory piece :)
