if you are such a fan, enough to devote webspace to the Conchords then at least be able to spell their names correctly
Seeing Jemaine, clearly pronounced without an 'r' spelt 'Jermaine' and Bret spelt with 2 T's is just wrong. Yes people not familiar with the show or the Conchords might spell their names incorrectly but if you are a fan, watch the show, see the credits with their names spelt correctly, then I reckon there is really no excuse
Yes my mini rant was because of a blog thing on the Conchords HBO series. The entire thing had not one correct spelling of the name Jemaine. It was spelt Jermaine each time. Thankfully Bret was spelt correctly.
And yes, I did leave a comment correcting the error
It irks me more as I am one of those people whose name is mispelt and mispronounced more often that not. I find it annoying as I spell it out clearly each time I am asked, pronounce it also as it should be said and I still get people saying 'Thank you Ms Andrews' or using some other surname like Andreas. Hello there is a 'de' there first. And I told you that. And then said 'SPACE NEW WORD' and spelt out and said the rest of my surname. I do so and then you repeat it back to me totally incorrectly and I am annoyed. You have this job, dealing with the public so I expect a basic grasp of the English language. Enough to spell my name when given to you. Even if it is of Spanish origin. I've still told you exactly how it should be
So yes I am a name demon. And also on behalf of others, especially the Conchords. Get it right. There is no excuse.
