Ang. Chem. Gets Weirder Every Day
The fine people at Angewandte Chemie's English edition, who continue to have way too much time on their hands, appear to have declared this 70s and 80s music month. So far I've spotted The Beach Boys, Toni Basil (a particularly strained one), and Elvis Costello.
There are movies, too here's another James Bond reference - but if anyone can tell me where the "Beverley Hills" part comes into this one, other than the desire to reach for a joke, I'd be grateful.
Finally, I have proof that at least one of their English-speaking editors is not only American, but specifically from Baltimore. Number of non-English speakers who will get that reference? To be counted on the fingers of the hands. . .
Update: I get the reference to the movie "Beverley Hills Cop II", but I just don't understand reaching for that reference - other than, of course, to show that you can. And as for the Baltimore one, I hadn't noticed that the authors are from Johns Hopkins, so we have to presume that they're to blame - and that the editors at the journal let that one through, too. . .
