What's in a Blog Name?

I received an e-mail today asking me about the name of my blog. "Uncorrected Proofs" is the name of a song by the Winnipeg-based band, The Weakerthans. I have been a big fan ever since I saw them play on the eve of the Kingston Day of Action back in in June 1998. This blog's by-line: "Read it to yourself again. The stories always end the same" is a lyric from the song. The song itself was never released as a single. Naming my blog after "Uncorrected Proofs" was simply a way of giving a nod to one of my favourite bands.
