The Journal of Ephemeral Inspiration

The Journal of Ephemeral Inspiration promises a neverending spew of pointless minutae, brilliant yet useless ideas, troublingly cruel commentary and emphatic musings on whatever shiny object happens to catch our collective eye. Always remember, hate the game, not the playa.

Correction: We Don't Dwell On Your Mistakes.

A correction on page A3 of the June 8 Washington Times read as follows: "The Washington Times yesterday inadvertently published a photograph of DC City Administrator Robert C. Bobb (left) misidentified as the late soul singer Marvin Gaye (right)."

That got us thinking. If the fascists at the Times can admit one of their many mistakes, the noble Journal of Ephemeral Inspiration can certainly step up to plate and cop to a few of our infrequent goofs. Soak it in, readermonkeys, 'cause the moon is blue...

In our blistering exposé about his messy divorce to actress/MILF Denise Richards, we mistakenly named actor/junkie Charlie Sheen and ran a photo of father/TV President Martin Sheen.

Instead of Helen Hunt, for our article entitled "People With Hollywood Careers That Haven't Completely Tanked," we intended to use a photo of Leelee Sobieski.

Our "Bald & Eyebrowless" summer fashion forecast listed Ron Howard, but unfortunately featured a photo of Paul McCrane.

Though both men were mentioned, the photo in the sidebar feature for the article "Least Capable Magicians" should not have been David Copperfield, it should have been Jeff Goldblum.

For our music retrospective "Off The Charts For Two Decades," we were lazy and figured Al Sharpton could probably pass for a middle-aged Morris Day.

We don't have a correction for these two, we just like the idea of them together. Yeah, we said it.

Jack Lemmon, John Lennon... c'mon, it's an honest mix up.

For our ""Why We Hate The View" article we ran a photo of the Michelin Man in place of Star Jones on purpose. It just made us giggle.

How embarassing. Our Spring vegetable garden how-to should have used a picture of an onion, and we go and use George Harrison's head. Whoops!
