What gets the goalie going? (+ FAIL?)

360 Magazine did a little featurette called "Kari Lehtonen's MP3 Playlist," listing the top 10 songs in his iTunes. The one page is shown below (with the text typed in case you can't read it). Caveat: I've never heard of 360, nor could I find ONE specific magazine with that title to attribute this to (there's about 6 out there and hard to determine to which this belongs). However, I'm not sure the right magazine would want credit, considering the EPIC FAIL* (in amongst the other, albeit less-epic fails) contained within...


Text:
Since Mid-January, Kari Lehtonen has been a steadying force for the Thrashers, holding down the fort and flat out stealing games when needed as he flirts with a new career-high save percentage. The quiet Finn is more grounded than your average goalie and spends a lot of free time listening to music and taking in concerts at Philips Arena.
Kari's method for finding new music is straightforward, and keeps him up to speed on the hottest tunes.
"I'm really hooked into iTunes. Once a week I go on and look at the Top 100 songs and preview anything I haven't heard before. I usually find three or four songs each time that I haven't heard before that I like and then a week later I do it again."
Lately the netminder has been listening to heavy doses of one of the most popular bands in the world.
"I really got into Coldplay after going to see the concert at Philips Arena, so I've downloaded a lot of Coldplay lately. They've always been one of my favorite bands and seeing them in concert took it to the next level."
Don't try to pigeon-hole Lehtonen's musical tastes though. They run the gamut from rock to country to hip-hop, as his recent Top 10 playlist shows:
  • Coldplay: "Yellow"
  • Kanye West: "Homecoming"
  • Metallica: "The Day That Never Comes"
  • U2: "One"
  • Adam Gregory: "Crazy Days"
  • Greenday: "King for a Day"
  • The Killers: "Human"
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers: "Zephyr"
  • Beck: "Lost Cause"
  • Akon: "I'm So Paid"
I was going to tear into the writer for their horrible writing skills, but I'll let that slide for now, and instead, share with my 4 darling loyal readers my top 10 songs on iTunes right now. I'm going in terms of, 10 Most Played, dig? You should comment and share yours. Which, in reality, is my subtle way of asking for some new music rec's!

Maali's Top 10 songs on iTunes:
  • LL Cool J - Around the Way Girl
  • n.e.r.d. - She Wants to Move (Native Tongue Remix)
  • Buckcherry - Lawless and Lulu
  • Reid Genauer - Dance
  • O.A.R. - That Was a Crazy Game of Poker
  • moe. - New York City
  • Dropkick Murphys - The Gauntlet
  • The Rasmus - First Day of My Life
  • Weezer - Troublemaker
  • Notorious B.I.G. - Real Niggaz
FAIL correction: Celestrina sent me a link of the full page from which the above was taken, so mild apologies for calling out the goalie fail. But since it's still funny, I'm not taking it down.

Apparently it's a Thrashers publication that gets sent to ticket holders and other people on their mailing list. That really makes the goalie identification fail that much worse.

Firstly, I'm offended I don't get this. Am I not a person of interest?!

Secondly, do you have an email address? I'd like to apply for a job as copy editor...

The picture of Moose comes from another article on the same page.

Thanks! :)

OK I can see how that's valid. But that's just a bad use of space / pre-press.

They are really looking forward for the feedback, ideas, articles, and e.t.c. You should write them.

This issue was available at every ice rink in Atlanta.

I feel like I've seen another misidentification of Moose as Kari or Kari as Moose before. I did see one of Kozlov where they said he was Bryan Little, lol. They were off by about 15 years on that one.

Never have heard any of those songs.

Maali said...

Anon I'm composing my thoughts. :) Newsprint paper, or glossy?

TR How wholly unsurprising. However, if it's part of an article on the facing page, then it's just bad editing. I'm pretty sure I've seen... at least half the team mis-identified.

WAYNE! WHAT UP!

None of his, none of mine, or none of either? Handily, I provided links to 3! FREE! Download and enjoy! It's like a 'holy crap August is boring, when does camp start?!' pick-me-up.

Here is the original page of 360. The magazine is designed by the Thrashers' staff. Those people know their hockey players.

Maali said...

Mea culpa, I retract the goalie ID fail. But I'm still keeping it up cause it's funny, and there are still the not-so-epic publishing fails, but eventually I will email the staff.

Thank you.
