but mostly fun

I launched ClockTowerTenants on July 18th, 2010. 

That’s five years, seven months and seven days ago and we just hit the 3000 post milestone yesterday.

Google offers a great suite of analytics, so I can see who comes to read this thing and why.

It looks different on a desktop compared to mobile.

Chrome is the dominant browser.

Things took off in the past 18 months.

And folks come in from all over the world now. 
Most French readership goes right to the recipes.

In the 2048 days since we launched, 3000 posts averages about 1 and 1/2 posts every day.

And I’ve posted 21,888 photos...

the vast majority of pics I’ve taken myself.

This is fun. This is work. 

But with the page views growing daily, 
it appears to be time well invested.

Hey, SOMEBODY must be reading!

playing with fire begins at about 1:30

let's move before they raise the fuckin' rent

“She said, "Look, what's your game?
Are you tryin' to put me in shame?”

In 1970, ”All Right Now" was a #1 hit in over 20 countries.
Turn it UP.

"Baby", I said, "Slow, slow, don't go so fast
Don't you think that love can last?”


She said, "Love, lord above, now you're gonna trick me in love!”
All right now baby, it's all right now.”

just krushin’ it

When I was a car-loving kid in the 1950’s, 
the name George Barris was synonymous with cool.

Son of a Greek immigrant, he began “kustomising” kars in Kalifornia very early, and soon Hollywood kame kalling.

The “K” in “Barris Kustom” became a signature.

Too young to drive, I hand-built his kustom models instead.

He was soon to be very famous.

With just three weeks notice, he turned a Lincoln Futura into the first Batmobile for ABC TV.

The Barris-built Batmobile sold at auction on January 19, 2013 for $4,620,000, and George Barris lived to see it.

My childhood hero of kustom kars passed away November 5, 2015
 at the kool old age of 89.

He was killer with a k.
