A Minor Oopsie

It's just my Minor Mistake
The Internet is an amazing thing.

I first heard of Minor Threat when I was 16. I was in a Specs music store. My girlfriend, Kathy said "Hey, look! They are straight edge!" as she handed me their tape. I wasn't sure what straight edge was but it was exactly what I was.

They were no longer a band but I did get to see the vocalist (Ian MacKaye) new band Fugazi. At the Edge in Ft. Laud.(1993).

Fast forward many many many years and I'm watching an interview on YouTube with Ian MacKaye... And he introduces himself Ian MacKaye and I rewind the video and say out loud 'MacWHAT?!? I've been pronouncing this guys name wrong my whole life!?!'
I've always pronounced his name Ian MacKaye like how the word 'Okay' sounds. Ian 'Mackay'
But it's actually pronounced  like how the K sounds in the word Kayak and the Y in the word eye. Ian Mac-K-EYE!!! 
Someday I'll look back and laugh... HA HA HA!
