Blues n' Soul has this as their tagline:


bluesNsoul wrote:
Come and be apart of the Revolution.
Come be apart of a new breed of Exchange.



Which cracks me up.

Not becuase the westie/lindy/eastCoast/blues/tango/justDance fusion has already been done, and
Not because they want to be so bold as to promote new creation for creations sake rather than just *do* it and let it be what it is (ala SwingNSoul), but
Because the word "apart" means separate, isolated, distinct, excluded.

So I read it as ... Come and be separate from our revolution/exchange.

The fact that this typo cracks me up must mean that I'm a grammar junkie. at least a little bit. then again, they did it twice.

Dear Fellow Graduate of Independent School District 535:

I'll leave judgement regarding anyone's grammar-junkie-ness to higher powers, but I AM certain that Ms. Millburn and Mr. Radke would beam with pride were either of them to see your post.
