fimoculous -- 1.16 million hits. filmoculous -- 57 hits. Statistically, I guess it ain't so bad that a small number of people spell my blog name wrong. But you'd think that Broadcasting & Cable would at least spell it right! (But thanks for the mention, Lisa.)


I can just see Lisa Waggoner in a team meeting after reading this site: "And Veronica Mars was the coolest show ever! Everyone's really upset it was cancelled. Oh, hey, has anyone heard of Mee-uh?"

I can relate -- I'm always spelling it myself.

i kind of feel like "filmoculous" fits you better. then again, i also think every child in the world should have a puppy and a kitten, so what do i know?

Other notables who spell it wrong: Panopticist, Krucoff, and Gawker. I've corrected Lockhart probably a half-dozen times now.

maybe that's just the fake version that they use on the show.

I found you via the YPulse blog, which also called you Filmoculous.

I like that has squatted you. THAT's an honor.

Totally saw that while reading the trades yesterday. Seriously thought someone might be biting your name. :)

Best line in the article: "Don't worry, I haven't heard of them either."

I guess the correct spelling depends on who you are. and a few others go with fimicolous. Come to think of it, I can't find any dictionaries that spell it your way. Sure you got it right???
