One year 'til middle school!

Deviant since Dec 23, 2004

You can see I've been busy this year because it's the first time since I've started this yearly review that I'm doing it late... Almost one month late. 
I'm actually too busy being happy and working and happily working to take care of my online presence that much, even though deviantaART is actually still one of my homepages. 

This year I've been working on a romantic comedy featuring Roger Moore (yes, that Roger Moore), called Incompatible, and I'm now preparing my next movie, Julie, about the journey of a transgender girl. Stay tuned, it's gonna be awesome!
How have you all been? We all grow older each year (not shit Sherlock) and I'm sure many of you have taken interesting paths :) 

Anyway, here are the numbers that only I care about: 

NEOkeitaro has 7,641 pageviews total and his 147 deviations were viewed 15,646 times. He watches 114 people, while 72 people watch him.

NEOkeitaro has 15,531 pageviews total and their 222 deviations were viewed 59,951 times. Neokeitaro watches 154 people, while 114 people watch NEOkeitaro.

NEOkeitaro has 30,671 pageviews total and their 283 deviations were viewed 139,124 times. Neokeitaro watches 234 people, while 223 people watch NEOkeitaro.

NEOkeitaro has 50,857 pageviews total and their 318 deviations were viewed 374,326 times. Neokeitaro watches 300 people, while 366 people watch NEOkeitaro.

NEOkeitaro has 69,852 pageviews total and their 323 deviations were viewed 506,701 times. Neokeitaro watches 321 people, while 445 people watch NEOkeitaro.

NEOkeitaro has 87,738 pageviews total and their 358 deviations were viewed 738,609 times. Neokeitaro watches 335 people, while 611 people watch NEOkeitaro.
NEOkeitaro has 131,394 pageviews total and their 386 deviations were viewed 834,537 times. NEOkeitaro watches 343 people, while 664 people watch NEOkeitaro.

43,656 pageviews this year (9002 last year, 122 a day) Either deviantART has changed the way it calculates pageviews or something is driving a lot of traffic to my page! Quite happy about this, although the deviation views are just 100,000 more, as every year, more or less. Maybe I had more views thanks to my journals? 

28 deviation this year (34 last year) I'm actually taking TONS of pictures this year, but I only post the most finished ones on deviantART, as I always wanted to only showcase my best works of the time here. You can see a broader selection here:…

95,928 views this year (7994 a month) (136,277 in 2012, 95,631 in 2011, 132,375 in 2010, 235,202 in 2009). Less than last year, but then again I didn't get a daily deviation to boost up my numbers this year. This, such an impressive number...

I watched 8 people this year (2 in 2012, 12 in 2011, 21 in 2010, 66 the year before that), and 53 watched me back (101 in 2012, 65 in 2011, 79 in 2010, 143 the year before). I wasn't socially active on the website (much more, more than ever, in real life, but that doesn't count here for some reason :p). Still, hello to all my new followers, talk to me about yourself! :D

Overall, his deviations received 2,230 comments and were added to deviants' favourites 340 times, while he commented 4,822 times.

Overall, their deviations received 3,433 comments and were added to deviants' favourites 1,163 times, while NEOkeitaro commented 6,740 times.

Overall, their deviations received 4,778 comments and were added to deviants' favourites 3,115 times, while NEOkeitaro commented 9,287 times, making about 6.39 comments per day since NEOkeitaro joined DA.

Overall, their deviations received 5,867 comments and were added to deviants' favourites 6,612 times, while NEOkeitaro commented 11,440 times, making about 4.47 comments per day since joining deviantART. 

Overall, their deviations received 6,230 comments and were added to deviants' favourites 9,480 times, while NEOkeitaro commented 11,586 times, making about 3.96 comments per day since joining deviantART.
Overall, their deviations received 6,378 comments and were added to deviants' favourites 10,383 times, while NEOkeitaro commented 11,673 times, making about 3.52 comments per day since joining deviantART.

148 comments received this year (363 in 2012, 130 in 2011, 261 in 2010, 698 in 2009). Maaaaainly stock notices, it seems no one really comments on deviantART anymore... Or not my kind of watchers? Or only to people who are more active?
903 favorite received this year (2868 in 2012, 844 in 2011, 1058 in 2010) (75 a month, 2.5 a day) Yet again, no daily deviation to boost up the numbers. 
87 comments given this year. (146 in 2012, 196 in 2011, 548 in 2010) And all of them answers! 

At last:

In 2011:
The deviation with the most comments is The French with 277 comments, while the most favourited one is 3R Stock Steampunk Instruments, with 1,105 favourites. The most viewed deviation is Wallpaper - Pink Winter with 65,219 views.

In 2012:
The deviation with the most comments is The French with 282 comments, while the most favourited one is Sunset Skyline Wallpaper, with 1,936 favourites. The most viewed deviation is Wallpaper - Pink Winter with 69,337 views.
in 2013: 
The deviation with the most comments is The French with 288 comments, while the most favourited one is Sunset Skyline Wallpaper, with 2,096 favourites. The most viewed deviation is Wallpaper - Pink Winter with 71,809 views.

Haaaa, the time I was a polemist... On the interweb! Still quite so in real life. And I swear, Sunset Skyline is still about 30,000 views behind Pink Winter, this is terrible.

Let's finish with some music! 

Ok, these may not be latest releases but hey, they just stand the test of time.
First, listen to HTRK, Work (work, work), so you'll know it by heart when I'll write a movie about them featuring their whole discography as the soundtrack. Listen to it at least three times, it takes a while to sink in. 
Then, if you're into oriental sounds, don't miss Bei Bei & Shawn Lee's Into the Wind, because it's genuinely awesome. When you want something else, switch to Bonobo's Black Sands, which is equally awesome. 
When you're with your lover, spin Beach House, any of their songs seem to magically fit the weather you're in. 
Want some beats? Listen to Shigeto, Com Truise, Tycho, Washed Out (and watch Portlandia, if you're into that kind of humor).
Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine are, as always, prime joices for heavy atmospheric music, don't forget to check the long awaited new CD from My Bloody Valentine. 
And last of all, if you want to feel happy, listen to Toro y Moi, Kings of Convenience, or the sound of your lover's voice. Also, get up and give them an unexpected hug. Just because. 

Have all a wonderful year (Happy new year!), and as always, tell me what's happening! (You never do, like terrible, terrible children I haven't raised. And good thing I didn't, you thankless bastards!)

Paris is still a shitty place in winter. :P

I am where intended - Ciudad de Mexico, enjoying the "winter" and going through job interviews. ;-)
