2005 vs. 2006

posted by on December 5 at 1:00 AM

I’m high… and listening to Puccini’s Tosca.

Yesterday, I reminded the Slog about Yahoo’s 2005 Top Ten Searches list.

Well, I get home tonight to find that the 2006 list was released today.

Compare and contrast. And discuss! And… who is Chris Brown?


1. Britney Spears
2. World Wrestling Entertainment
3. Shakira
4. Jessica Simpson
5. Paris Hilton
6. American Idol
7. Beyonce Knowles
8. Chris Brown
9. Pamela Anderson
10. Lindsay Lohan


1. Britney Spears
2. 50 Cent
3. Cartoon Network
4. Mariah Carey
5. Green Day
6. Jessica Simpson
7. Paris Hilton
8. Eminem
9. Ciara
10. Lindsay Lohan

Footnote on Yahoo’s poll:

Yahoo! included blogs and bloggers as a category for the first time, and was tops. The self-proclaimed “Hollywood’s most-hated Web site” is all about celebrity gossip, rumor and innuendo.

Other blogs in the Top 10 include Huffington Post,, Daily Kos, Little Green Footballs and Gawker.

The Drudge Report would have beaten them all, Early said, except that “our editors consider Drudge to be too mainstream to be a blogger.”

Considering what most people searched for in the year before, you could guess "Shitty Musician" without knowing anything and most likely be right.

CHZA, i think you meant "shitty singer" (who sings geniusly evil pop song writers' music). slutty singers don't really qualify as musicians. they're actresses.

Oh, man, Josh. We need to hang out. There is so much classical music (and opera, specifically) that is great while high. But if you really want to Go There, you've gotta try Bach motets. And then try them on psychedelics. Your mind will be blown. Not that you need it. ;)
