I don't even have the December Genii yet, so I haven't seen the title change. As a language lover myself, I have nothing against unusual and apt words, though I must say that "On the slant" is nicer as a name for a column; "Flibbertygibberty" was fine too, but sounds a bit made up.
As a side note, I was interested to discover the correct pronunciation of "Racherbaumer". I don't have a lot of contact with magicians (even less since I left England six years ago), so I have to make up my own pronunciations of American magicians' names. Having studied German, I always pronounced "Racherbaumer" in the German way, all the while thinking that in America it would probably be something like "rakker-bow-mer". Not sure how you get "rocker-bomber", but I'll bear it in mind for the future.
Other names I always mispronounced and was corrected on when I visited America (capital letters indicate stress):
Bruce Cervon (should be "serVON", not "SERvon")
Michael Ammar ("AYmar", not "AMMar")
Ken Krenzel ("krenZEL", not "KRENzel")
Sorry if this is a bit off-topic, and I hope Mr Racherbaumer and the others don't mind me discussing their names like this.
