National Junk Food Day
 
 

Just like Emoji Day, National Junk Food Day is a holiday I deem unworthy of mention at Crazy Eddie's Motie News, especially when it's in competition with National Moon Day, which is.  That might change next year, so long as the U.S. has a president who likes junk food.  Stay tuned and Happy National Junk Food Day!

I'm skipping the saved comments post for December 2016, as I used the entire saved comment from Greer's blog in For Winter Solstice 2016, the Archdruid and I discuss Discordianism and fake holidays. No need to post it here.

The blog passed 800,000 page views about 8 AM on 12/7/16. It published its 3000th post on 12/8/16. The month ended with 37 comments and 36,117 page views, the second most of any month behind only October 2016.

Most read, shared, and liked posts of December 2016 behind the cut. )

For two days, I've been teasing that I'd post what I was writing about at Crazy Eddie's Motie News instead of World Emoji Day. It was about the Teen Choice Award nominees for Movies and TV.

Here are the links to three posts and the blurbs I used to promote them on social media. )

Voting ends tonight.  Surf here to vote.

Patrick Stewart as the voice of poop emoji
I wrote yesterday that "I'll be back tomorrow with the entries I actually posted at my main blog." That's not happening today. Maybe tomorrow. Instead, I've found two clips of actors in "The Emoji Movie" promoting the film on late night talk shows. The first is Sir Patrick Stewart's Next Distinguished Role: Poop Emoji on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert when he was ostensibly there to promote "Logan."


The second is Maya Rudolph Struggled Getting into Character as Cartoon Emoji from Late Night with Seth Meyers, which was taped on World Emoji Day. She even mentions that in the video.


As I wrote in the subject line, first-rate voice talent for a second-rate movie. Maybe it will be better than I fear.

World Emoji Day from National Day Calendar

There are some holidays I don't plan on blogging at Crazy Eddie's Motie News. World Emoji Day is one of them. Here's what National Day Calendar says about the holiday.

Wombat holiday post card

I've celebrated Wester online since 2007, most recently on Dreamwidth in 2012. I also celebrated Norther, a parody holiday created by John Michael Greer, who journals here as [personal profile] ecosophia, at Crazy Eddie's Motie News in January. Today, I'm celebrating Wombats and ice cream for the first Souther! Here's the blurb about the holiday I wrote for social media promotion of the post.

Today is the first Souther, the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Summer Solstice, a holiday created by John Michael Greer the Archdruid.  Its mascot is the wombat.  It's also National Ice Cream Day, so I'm celebrating with ice cream drink recipes from Tipsy Bartender and a video that's supposed to be a wombat eating ice cream.  It's actually a woodchuck, but who cares?

Come over for the booze and ice cream recipes!

Santa Clara Vanguard 2013 Les Miserables

Happy Bastille Day! Over at Crazy Eddie's Motie News, I wished my readers a drum corps Bastille Day, just as I did last year. However, I have more material saved up than I used this year at the main blog. As I have written multiple times, most recently in Tipsy Bartender recipes for National Mojito Day, "I'm an environmentalist; not only do I recycle, I conserve my resources." In the meantime, Vive La France!

Boston Crusaders 2011.

From the DCI World Championship the 2011 Boston Crusaders opener. They placed 8th overall.

The blog passed its 900,000th page view on February 23, 2017. It earned a record number of page views per day, per post (both 1742.64), and per month (48,822). After last month's record, it "only" received 63 comments this month, which makes this a good month for comments, too, at 2.25 comments per day and per entry. However, 36 of them were in response to last month's persistent spammer. Yes, cleanup took that long.
