Get the Facts Straight

"I am Charlotte Simmons" by Tom WolfeI’ve been reading I am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolfe for the past week or two.

So far, it’s been decent, despite the level of criticism it has received from the press. As I was reading it last night though, I was astounded by one of those tiny little misplaced details. He mentioned that a bunch of basketball players were playing their Playstation 3. Now, I understand that a lot of people wouldn’t think twice about this. But I’m a gamer. I know that the Playstation 3 hasn’t even been released yet. In fact, they haven’t even announced a release date for it yet, other than a fuzzy November 2006. What makes it worse is that the book has a copyright of 2004.

I can’t believe nobody caught this before it went to print. Kind of a glaring mistake (especially since Tom Wolfe supposedly did so much research on the college lifestyle). Video games are a very important part of youth culture. This is a pretty big mistake in my opinion. Almost made me want to quit reading the stupid book.

I usually hate those Coke commercials that give you that warm and fuzzy feeling of happiness and the joy of life…then leave you feeling bamboozled into liking a cheap advertising trick by an uber-rich corporation. This one’s good though:
