Language is originally art, THE art of Magik... to SPELL. ~comment by Jeremy H. from Magik of the Monkey King
I've been thinking (again) about words and language as a form of magic spell and I always go back to the crazy fact that the Millenium Hilton Hotel (standing in for the Monolith/Monomyth) misspells Millennium. 911 is variously called a mega ritual or stargate, perhaps intended to inaugurate the Aeon Of Horus (Millennium Falcon) and yet, "they" didn't get the fucking spell right.
On June 1, I get this "Corrected Previous Message - Spell Checked" from The Watchman Report and I sort of thought that was hilarious, especially because he misspells "mispelled"!
Going back to the Trident for sale, best offer business, I see that the distressed owner (the former Captain Nemo) misspelled "Masariti". It's like - maybe he was fired for bad spelling?
I don't want to be too nuts here but you see how he draws the TT in "Quattroportte" twice, and while the first double T is correct, the second is not. The proper spelling is Quattroporte, and we see that the trident goes directly through the incorrect part. The demonic spell checker.
Whenever we talk about spells and spelling I can't help but think of Tori Spelling (Alan Green and I have been geeking on this for a while), because:
A torii (鳥居・鳥栖・鶏栖?, lit. bird perch, /ˈtɔəri.iː/) is a traditional Japanese gate most commonly found at the entrance of or within a Shinto shrine, where it symbolically marks the transition from the profane to the sacred. ~wikiI had lunch at Taco del Mar today, and I noticed the water cup they gave me has Carlos the fish, who can't spell at all.
I have no idea what any of the above means.
Update: 2012 Spelling champ: "Snigdha Nandipati is the fifth Indian-American in a row to win the Scripps National Spelling Bee. The 14-year old spelled 'guetapens,' which means ambush or trap."
It's a trap.
