OK, this is by far the best video of Gabe's band I've found. That is, it has the most closeups of Gabe doing a terrible Bono impression.

What on earth are you talking about here? The capitalisation is correct.
You capitalized every word. That's not correct.

And if you try to get from Wellington to Palmerston North, it actually sends you through the campus of Massey University. WTF.
that reminds me of how it says to get from here to atlanta. you have to take route 78, so that's a given. however, i would take the interstate to get to that route. it tells me to take this back way that goes by the airport, and most importantly, where i had my near-fatal car accident! i would have a panic attack if i had to drive on that street again.

Yes it is. It's a title.

Here, either way is grammatically correct. I used to capitalise all the time, as seen in that example, while nowadays I tend to find not capitalising to be more aesthetically pleasing. Though I still do it in cases where it's necessary to avoid confusion, primarily in cases of "and".

Never been to Margaritaville.
hehe, oops!

i've been to the one in vegas. it's at the flamingo. we were staying right across at caesars palace (i gotta stay loyal to my employer! i'm such a dork) so it was no big deal. i loved the way the flamingo looked inside though, it's so...pink!

anyway, the atmosphere and everything at margaritaville is fun, but we had a horrible waitress. she was nice to my dad and me because we ordered alcohol. my mom just got tea and got treated like shit. that doesn't sit well with me.

Bah, why is Ian not here?

I have something to rant about and he'll actually get what I'm on about.

Alternatively: bah, why are none of you from New Zealand?

U2 Titles:

Where the Streets Have No Name
Out of Control
No Line on the Horizon
Crumbs from Your Table
How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb
Daddy's Gonna Pay for Your Crashed Car
Bullet the Blue Sky

Etc.

I wouldn't say that.

And you can kindly stop trying to push your inferior US grammar onto me.

I agree with Axver here. I capitalize all the words in song titles to avoid confusion. Plus, it just makes the title stand out more.

Yeah. And "Crumbs from Your Table" just looks stupid - and isn't what my copy of HTDAAB says. Though trusting U2 for grammar is kind of ridiculous.

1. In America, it is literally incorrect to capitalize articles, conjunctions, and prepositions in titles.

2. I was not aware that it changed around the world, hence why my post said it was incorrect.

3. Kindly stop trying to belittle the US every chance you get. We have our faults, but calling our grammar inferior is beyond absurd.

It's a pet peeve of mine. Seeing titles with all the words capitalized when they're not supposed to be capitalized bugs me.
