Who On Earth Is Searching for "Hipster John Denver"?

Here at Houston Press HQ, Rocks Off has a program where we can see every search someone types into that window with the magnifying glass in the top right-hand corner of our home page and any of the four Houston Press blogs.

That's right, we're watching you. Be careful.

It's fascinating, the things people look to the Houston Press for answers about, and of course a little gratifying the. Sometimes, usually when we should be doing something else, we catch ourselves staring at this program just to see the crazy things people will input.

So Rocks Off just happened to be watching this program Monday afternoon (we'd tell you the name, but it's kind of a state secret) and saw someone search "hipster John Denver." Our next thought was, "Who would even put those three words together?"
