I should be a writer

Who knew you had to do any research before printing something?

The Atlanta-Journal Constitution’s Access Atlanta cd reviewer Nick Marino printed his latest critique of the White Stripes’ new album Get Behind Me Satan:

“Get Behind Me Satan” is experimental by White Stripes’ standards รณ loosey-goosey, less guitar-driven than their debut album “Elephant.”

That’s all fine and dandy, but Elephant was actually their fourth album, not their debut. I wonder how many rabid White Stripes fans picked up on that one?

    Almost as bad as NYT saying Coldplay inspired one words bands like Travis, when Travis had 2 cd’s out before Coldplay hit the big time with Yellow

    Anyhoo, it’s an interesting CD by Jack and Meg… Needs more maracas (or cowbell) though.

    It might be an editing error rather than a “writer doesn’t know what he’s saying” error. After all, last time the White Stripes put out a CD, a headline on AJC.com referred to the group as “The White Strips.”

    A similar error, though not nearly as funny, popped up today. Access Atlanta’s main page referred to the Coldplay as “Cold Play.” I’m gonna go ahead and guess that spell check operating by someone unfamiliar with the group is to blame for that one.

    I was hoping it was something along the lines of a mistaken “commercial radio debut” or something like that. Hoping.

    And you’re right… spellcheck can be a fickle fiend. I use Typepad, and, interestingly enough, “blogger” isn’t in its dictionary.
