One of the joys of adding Google Analytics to your site is seeing all the strange ways people find your site through search engines. As I reviewed the list of search terms used to find the site over the past year, I realized I had an opportunity to be service-y and answer a few of the questions and queries posed by those who search for my site.
One of the most commonly searched for items that lead people to my site are Little House on the Prairie inquiries, many of which I am more than happy to answer:
“Did Adam get his sight back before or after Mary had the baby on Little House?”
After. See? Service-y!
“Mrs Garvey broke the window with Mary’s baby”
Yes, yes she did. Fucked up isn’t it?
There is also a contingent of people obsessed with Michael Landon. Would you believe one of the most searched for queries on my site is:
“Did Michael Landon get a perm?”
To answer this question, I turned to pre-Little House pics of him on Bonanza. After careful photographic analysis, I think it’s fair to say that no, Michael Landon did not have a perm. He had naturally curly hair, and just kind of let it go wild for the Little House series. He was also quite the looker in his Bonanza days.
People really want to know about the deep, dark world of Michael Landon, if that even exists:
“Michael Landon hated”
Are you looking for things he hated, or that he was hated? I don’t know much about him, but Melissa Gilbert was quite fond of him, and Johnny Carson adored him. And clearly, he hated Mary Ingalls.
“Michael Landon’s secret life”
“Michael Landon pedofil”
Yeah, no. And really, spelling?
“Michael Landon and kittens”
Of course, not all queries are sad and negative. Maybe part of that “secret life” was a signature move I was unaware of:
“Landon fuck move”
I have heard rumors that Landon was quite the Cassanova back in the day. I suspect the Landon Fuck Move does not involve Little House On the Prairie, but upon reading it, I get a very disturbing image in my mind’s eye of Pa’s apple-cheeked quiverface getting down and I do not appreciate that. Especially since he’s still wearing suspenders. Damn you, Asshole Brain.
It could be that there is an entire world of Little House slashfiction that I’m unaware of [Oh.My.God. It exists. And I’m not linking to it because it’s just wrong…*shivers* WHYGODWHY and Albert and Sylvia fanfic? Really?]. I think that’s what someone was getting at when they wanted to find:
“Mary and Adam Kendall Wedding Night”
Okay, Mary was super pretty and Adam Kendall was dreamy, if not a little dorky. The episodes where they fell in love were hands-down my favorite episodes of the series. I feel you, Little House On the Pervy, I do, but there are certain things you need to leave be. This is one of them. Might I interest you in Albert and Sylvia Mime Porn?
Note: The videos below do not contain Mime Porn. But season four does introduce dreamy Adam Kendall.
