Alyssa Milano and Dana Plato. Each time I read the AM thread I say, "Wait, isn't she dead? Why are they talking about her as if she's alive?" Then I go "OK, who am I thinking of?"

Saskatchewan and Saskatoon.

I have only just realised (from the remixes thread) that Carl Craig is not Carl Cox.

(That said, I did think that Calvin Harris was Calvin Johnson for about a year, and really wondered what on earth had happened to Dub Narcotic Sound System.)

I can be really dumb sometimes.

Daniel Johnson / Calvin Johnson.

Safe to say, no relation....

the Avalanches
the Arctic Monkeys

Mistook the former for the latter until the "Your favorite album of the 00's - PICK ONLY ONE " thread.

Roger Clemens / Roberto Clemente / Bob Clemens. Which is sort of ridiculous apart from all being baseball players. Also, the third played for like one season almost a hundred years ago and I don't know how I know who he is.

I used to mix up Roger Clemens and Wade Boggs!

Haha. Maybe just try to remember that Wade Boggs did those hair loss commercials.

(Oh, I see the first two were already posted. I don't really get the sci-fi writer William Gibson confused with anyone else, but it's confusing that there's a playwright also named William Gibson, along with writers Goldman and Golding.)

for some reason

actors marshall bell (kuato!)

and geoffrey lewis (known best maybe for playing the outlaw leader in high plains drifter)

they're not even really of the same era, i guess they just always showed up in various interesting roles and kinda looked slightly similar.

Americans have heard of Rikky Rooksby?

(I know he's written a couple of books but they're in a pretty over-crowded field and I know the name mostly for him writing for many years for a magazine that was handed out free in music equipment shops across the UK)

(PS seems a good guy and have probably learnt a few things from him, so this is not intended as an insult)
(PPS Kompakt act The Field's real name is Axel Willner, if you want to add anyone else to the confusion whirlpool)
