Here we are. Another month is about to fade into the ether of time. Before it does, however, let us have one last glimpse into the face of April 2012.
- Introduced you to Jill Burgess of Everything Just So
- Reintroduced you to Kristin, one-half of BonBon Rose Girls
- Shone the spotlight upon Louisville’s newest food truck
- Said our farewells to Jim Marshall and Dick Clark
- Hoped we would also not need to bid farewell to Robin Gibb
- Celebrated the long career of Killing Joke
- Took a few more steps toward establishing my own business
- Became a contributing writer for The Truth About Cars
- Scored an internship with Louisville Public Media
- Interviewed by a Chicago university paper regarding a bit of fiction I wrote in 1998
- And finally, went outside the box for an interview with Tabitha St. Germain, whose voice gives life to many an animated character, including the one who is my blog’s (and soon, my boutique’s) unofficial mascot
That last item is very important to me for a number of reasons:
First, the interview brought new eyes to 33 avenue Miquelon.
Second, because of that interview — more than anything I’ve written to date — this blog will see nearly 12,500 monthly visitors by the time 1st May rolls around. This will be the first time ever that I’ve ever seen over 10,000 visitors in one month.
And finally, this interview brought my blog back to what it’s supposed to be about: Fashion, through my eyes. If you recall in December, I came out as the creator of a fictional posthuman/alien genetic mutation that had, in the last decade, took on a life of its own. I came out in order for this idiocy to die, even if it meant dashing the hopes and dreams of many a young teenage girl (most of whom discovered and embraced my monster via Tumblr) against the jagged rocks of reality to do so.
Alas, the most popular post since coming out has been that very one. Interviewing the voice behind my mascot Rarity — a unicorn who designs fashions for the Canterlot elite and her friends — was the only way to bring it back home, as it were.
TL;DR: Bronies > Children of the Violet Eye Brigade. Always.
Until next month, I leave you with a live performance of Foster the People’s “Pumped Up Kicks” from their 2011 appearance on Letterman.
