I got many, many hits on the site yesterday, and have no explanation as to why. Maybe Benzino did something newsworthy.
Also, once again, check out new arts & culture 'zine The High Hat. It's filled with some mighty fine writing, not all of which is mine. I especially recommend Scott von Doviak's look at movies of the "future sports" genre, Chris Lanier's look at the cartoonist Magritte, and William Ham's Lester Bangs article.
