Senran Kagura Peach Ball (Switch) this week for me.

I'd be on board with Builders if it were more like Minecraft and didn't ALSO feel the need to add stupid crop farming like Harvest Moon/Animal Crossing. Too much of a mish mash!

Builders is for people who love the Dragon Quest franchise and want a Minecraft-lite with a detailed story. No one else need apply.

Isn't it spelled "cemetery" though?

I'll be watching Crawl this weekend. Part hurricane film, part murderous alligator film, and hopefully more that they haven't shown in trailers. I've mentioned it before but I'm a big fan (a word I don't use lightly) of director Alexander Aja.

The only thing correcting the spelling accomplishes is broadcasting the fact you've never read the book or seen either version of the movie.

It's spelled "Sematary" because of a hand-made sign planted outside of said pet cemetery. The sign was made by children.

Yep, it's all true never read or seen any of the movies. Thanks for explaining in case anyone asks me I can be a pompous asshole too!

People commenting on the spelling of the title is one of the oldest "criticisms" of this particular book, so if pointing out that the spelling was completely intentional makes me a pompous ass...then, so be it.

Could I have used a bit more tact with my explanation? Sure, probably. It's still a tired, old question, though. Most (not all) people who ask it typically (but not always) think they're being clever (or something). Considering the fact the title has been spelled that way for 36 years...it's safe to assume it was likely intentional, especially if you're not familiar with the material.

Anecdotal evidence to the contrary: I've only learned the (in)correct spelling of the book's title over the last months myself, despite having been familiar with the book/old film before. The simple reason: The book's title is spelled entirely correctly in German ("Friedhof der Kuscheltiere"), which may be the case in other languages as well. I was genuinely confused when the remake showed up on EvAv, because I didn't recognize the word. For a second, I thought this was going to be a parody or something like that...

Itís Stephen King, he makes more money than us, thus he gets to spell things any darn way he chooses. The rich really are better than the rest of us.
