So wrong, for now

Corrections

BECAUSE this website is all about telling the truth, I feel compelled to come clean. Since I started this blog one month ago, it has come to my attention that I have made many mistakes. So, in the spirit of full disclosure, I present this list of things I got wrong:

I called My Morning Jacket overrated, but I’m really digging their new CD.

Despite what I wrote, I love spending as much time as possible with all of my friends’ beautiful children (except for Alexa and Mitchell).

I mistakenly advised that blueberries can be used to remove grass stains. It’s the other way around.

The DVD pictured at right is not gay porn, as indicated in my review. In fact, the “F” stands for “fighting.”

There was a typo in the recipe for my Spice-Tastic Eleven-Layer Party Dip. The recipe actually calls for two cups of sour cream, not caulking compound.

Apparently the Vince Vaughn classic “Psycho” was a remake of an older movie that a bunch of people have told me is even better. I’d watch it if it weren’t in black and white.

I should have used a “spoiler alert” before revealing how and when the world will end.

Indiana Jones was alive in the latest movie, and not a relic unearthed by that “Boy Meets World” kid. I have updated my review.

And finally, I was wrong to ask readers to write my blog for me. I was kinda busy last week, so I figured a reader contest would give me a break. But only one person entered (and by default he wins the prize). I have since acquired five Chinese child slav—- er, interns, who will provide content for me when I’ve got better things to do.

I’ve made countless other mistakes since starting this blog, but I’ll stop right here. You know what they say — if your correction lasts longer than four hours…

    Maybe someone will colorize Psycho for you, and you’ll be able to compare it to VV’s version. Too bad Ted Turner’s pretty much given up on that…

    enjoying your blog, adam!

  2. Corrections?!? Adam, sounds like you need a good copy editor. I can’t believe you’ve been spouting falsehoods and lying to us all this time.
    Just when I was really starting to dig all this stuff. . .wow, this blog really DOES hurt.

    Errors?!? You?!? If you need a qualified copy editor, there will probably be several available in a few weeks.

    My Morning Jacket not overrated? Wow. I read a review of the new CD in the Courant and it was so filled with pretty adjectives that I considered buying it. File this fucking thing under “Critic Wants To Appear Cool.” A couple of days later I borrowed a copy and put it on my iPod, and you know what? … It sucks. Really sucks. The Courant reviewer had me expecting something raw and cranking, kind of like the Drive-By Truckers. Wrong-O! I was reminded of Glen Campell, the Pina Colada Song and some other ’70s soft-rock horseshit. And why is that fucking singer imitating Prince?

  5. It’s like Dorothy Parker once said, “I hate to write, but love having written.” Any contest involving work is not a good idea. Love reading your blog though. We should be paying you!

  6. I dunno – I tried the spice dip WITH the caulking compound – kinda chewy, but I no longer have a hernia…
