Why I love Sy Fy and Other Links

It’s been a while since I shared some links, so here they are. Not many, but enough to stave off boredom for at least 3 minutes.
  • The Science Fiction Channel (SciFi) is now the Sy Fy channel. There is way too much discussion to even try to link – but to some it up: everyone hates the new name. While the title of this post is indeed a blatant attempt to have people click on this post, I agree with the masses on this one. This has to be one of the stupidest moves I’ve seen in a while. In other news, their new slogan “Imagine Greater” is only slightly better than their new name. (Edit: I just heard that Syfy is the plural of a really nasty curse word in Polish that is originally derived from syphillis. How appropriate.)

  • Oh, and this blog is fabulous - thanks to Blood of the Muse for the nod. This is meme I'll not take up directly, so if you feel that you are fabulous, consider yourself tagged.

It just makes me wonder if they're dumbing down the SciFi channel.

I'm off the grid as far as TV goes--antenna only--but I once liked the SciFi channel. I wonder what else they're going to do with it.

I imagine that they won't change much at all - just the name. They want copyright rights and a different image.

Of course, for me, it will always be the 'Siffy' network with venerial disease immediately coming to mind.
