 I think we're doomed when it comes to our language. I envision a future not too far away where most of the English spoken/written now in the present will look to the future generations like the original version of Beowulf does to us. They won't be able to imagine us actually saying "Oh My God" outloud instead of "OMG", or spelling "Boys" with a 's' instead of a 'z'.

It wouldn't hurt to actually simplify the English language, you know. The spelling and grammar rules we have? AWFUL.

I think it's definitely getting old. 
It's not that bad when the music is actually good - i.e Gorillaz - but one hit wonders like "Soulja Boi" or whatever - it's ju lame.

The cat macros of the music world.  God forbid we find a pop band called "i can haz cheezburger" in the not-too-distant future.

I normally don't have a problem with how band names are spelled.  Hell, I adore the Beatles and think the Monkees are kicking, so it'd be stupid of me to say, "No, no, you can't do that!"  But when it starts affecting how you spell the word in real life, then it gets a little stupid.  I fear that the spelling of ludicrous is forever lost, thanks to the rapper of the same name.

Ironically, I have the same problems with Santa Claus for the exact same reason.

I'm afraid we, as a society, are not too far from the day when a man's epitaph reads "Im in ur graveyard, decaying in2 ur soil."

I think misspelling the names gives them copyright opportunities and now more than ever if your name is the only one spelled a particular way search engines can more easily find you.  Just a thought.

Hah, I kind of like those.  Personally, I want mine to read "Excuse me, but I can't stand up," but that's just because when I die, I want everybody to remember me as the snooty cretin who judged people simply because they've never seen a Marx Brothers film in their lives.*

*Okay, not really.  Hell, I can't even judge, since I haven't seen all of 'em, anyway.  I just wanted to be smug and drop a Groucho Marx quote in one of my posts.  Is that so wrong?*

*Yes.  Yes, it is.

See I want to be buried beneath an apple tree no grave marker needed. 

Because one day people will forget that there's somebody down there and they'll eat the apples and from beyond I'll have pulled off a masterful prank. >:D
