It seems like this file has been corupted or specto has been updated and cant understand its own file anymore

/home/dreamsofubuntu/.specto/watches.list

I dont know how specto works but if you make a backup and add new watches to specto it should work.

try this
mv /home/dreamsofubuntu/.specto/watches.list /home/dreamsofubuntu/.specto/watches.list.backup

and if it fails and nothing works anymore you can put everything back like this

mv /home/dreamsofubuntu/.specto/watches.list.backup /home/dreamsofubuntu/.specto/watches.list

Your problem was that u use brackets in your watch name.
This is not supported in version 0.2.2 (but it will be in 0.3)
