It seems our little blog has its own off shoot. Please welcome "The Other Style Council" to the blogosphere. The geniuses behind the genius— Derek Thomas, Craig Gaines, and James Moreland— are copy editors here at the LA Weekly. Without them you'd know just how illiterate some of our writers are (me included, or is it myself included? now you stop laughing boys!). I can only imagine what they think of our drunken posts, they must read our slips in punctuation, spelling, modifying, and conjugating in horror. I can't get enough of their donnish humor. Check it out for yourselves...http://www.theotherstylecouncil.blogspot.com/
"So why does this blog exist? Because Derek spent a few hours Friday night creating that crackerjack illustration at the top of the page (please note that Derek spent Friday night creating a graphic whose sole purpose is to out himself and two colleagues as geeks). So now we're stuck with it. Look to this space in the future for discussions about the auditory differences in slamming shut American Heritage and Webster's New World College dictionaries, what we eat for dinner Tuesday nights, the existential implications in romanizing URLs in copy, how much I hate en dashes (oh, how I hate you, en dashes!) and the singular genius of Ray Bradbury." — posted by Craig at 9:14 PM
