I used to always mix up Woodward and Bernstein. Never knew who was who.

I have no idea why, but Schopenhauer and Scriabin.

Taxi and Taxi Driver. Not too much, though. "Time to stick on Taxi Driver and have a few laughs before bed."

Merdeyeux, Sunday, 2 March 2008 21:41 (6 years ago) Permalink

Quentin Crip/Crispin Glover/Crispian Mills. I'm not even sure totally sure who these people are, but I still mix them up.

Tuomas, Sunday, 2 March 2008 21:45 (6 years ago) Permalink

Just the names, I mean. I'm quite sure the actual people are very different.

Tuomas, Sunday, 2 March 2008 21:46 (6 years ago) Permalink

1 month passes...

I just realized I've always mixed up Steely Dan and Steeleye Span. Then again, I don't know much about either except that they were 70s rock bands.

Tuomas, Thursday, 3 April 2008 11:24 (6 years ago) Permalink

Steeleye Span was a folkish band whereas Steely Dan was R&B and jazz inflected. To help you out.

Sasha Frere-Jones and Sasha Baron-Cohen.

kingkongvsgodzilla, Thursday, 3 April 2008 11:53 (6 years ago) Permalink

John Updike }{ John Irving

Nothing to do with their names, but I'm always stumbling and getting Cheever in my Updike. And vice versa.

Alvin Stardust and Ziggy Stardust.

Tuomas, Tuesday, 18 November 2008 10:20 (5 years ago) Permalink

I mean, what's the point of having two glam rock singers named "Stardust"? Which one of them came first?

Tuomas, Tuesday, 18 November 2008 10:25 (5 years ago) Permalink

The legendary Stardust Cowboy.

(ten points to me)

Dennis Quaid and Jeff Bridges

redmond, Thursday, 11 December 2008 18:18 (5 years ago) Permalink

I don't get them confused, per se, but I always seem to forget that Jeff Bridges' name isn't "Jeff Daniels". It takes me a second before I think, "Oh, wait. Jeff Daniels is that other guy."
