I heart spelling it out
I'm excited to see the new movie "I Heart Huckabees."
... And to bring this on topic: There's been some debate about how to style this movie name. The logo has a heart instead of the word "heart." But does that mean "heart" or "love"? Well, it means "heart." I know this only because that's how I've heard it pronounced in trailers and that's how I've seen it spelled.
But a columnist at Newsday is bucking the trend, going with "I Love Huckabees" instead. Why?
Russell obviously meant for the title, with its graphic twist, to say "I Love Huckabees" and if we can't scare up a heart logo, we should say so, too. "Heart" is not a verb. It is a human organ - one of the top three, as Woody Allen might say. I'm going to go with "Love" until somebody somewhere stops me.Somebody somewhere stop him.
And store this in your brain as another reason we should never, ever use logos to render a name in a newspaper. Ridiculous.
But, just in case you need to make the heart for a logo of your own, here are directions, via Low Culture.
