The rise in traffic with the war crimes debate (and a bit from the Kingfisher calendar)
Three years after, Sri Lanka is still defined by the war. To a lesser extend, so is this blog. As much as I try to write about penguins and India and swimsuit calendars, it’s still war that gets people engaged.
Whatever I do, this blog’s traffic always spikes with war or elections, or natural disasters. Artificial and natural disasters you could say. With comments it’s even more clear. Any post about the war gets over 20 comments easily, whereas penguins gets like four.
I actually love Sri Lanka for the not war stuff, but there’s still a big media demand for it, even if it’s just the yearly acid reflux we get around this time. So, here’s some reading.
- My review of the new Killing Fields Part 2 video
- A piece on Prabhakaran’s Play from beyond the grave
- On the seeming execution of Prabhakaran’s kid
And, if you’re interested, here’s a piece that really interested me. It’s on Postmodern GIFs.
