A supermassive spelling error.


My friends know I have two really big weaknesses: baseball players and rock stars. During baseball season, you can often find me at various ballparks, screaming my face off at hot ballplayers like Cole Hamels, Jeff Francoeur, and Ryan Church, among others. During the offseason, though, I tend to develop random music-related crushes, the latest of which is the gorgeous and talented Matthew Bellamy from Muse (OK, I have more of a crush on his lyrics than on him personally, but the man's got spiky-ish hair, a hot accent, and blue eyes, which, in my semi-warped opinion, makes him totally crush-worthy). Which is why I am not at all pleased (OK, perhaps I'm mildly amused) that some moron misspelled the name of one of my favorite Muse songs. It's not "Suppermassive Black Hole", dammit. It's "Supermassive Black Hole". Matthew Bellamy is too damn fabulous to have silly spelling errors in the titles of his band's songs. Grrr. I mean, I get that supermassive is a made-up word, but how hard is it to spell, really?

Maybe he was hungry, and just had supper on the mind.

Very possible. But to misspell it TWICE in that same way? He must have been truly ravenous!

The best part is, he spelled it right the third time. Also note the 110% guarantee on the side. B-e-a-utiful.

Good observation, Michael... So not only can he not spell, he also can't do math! I'm willing to bet he's also not a member of MENSA. Just a hunch. ;)

Just to warn you, Matt Bellamy is surprisingly short.

Yeah, I've noticed that (from watching the HAARP DVD). But when somebody's that freakin' cool, the shortness doesn't bother me. :)
