Sci Fi to SyFy Logo
The Sci Fi Channel is altering its logo from Sci Fi to SyFy soon. Have you ever seen anything so stupid? What exactly is the point? Sci Fi stands for Science Fiction, not SyFy. Do we have to always be so cute and clever or hip and cool? What is wrong with the existing logo? What happened to standards? Quite frankly, Sci Fi Wire used to offer outstanding science fiction news and information and then it was decided that too should go the route of trying to be cool and trendy. It's now the gossip wire and it's loaded with stupid stories and not-so-clever or even accurate science fiction commentaries or analysis. If you are going to be the voice of science fiction you have got to have standards and get things right. It must be substance over style. Change is good sometimes, but change for the sake of change isn't necessarily good. I haven't liked what I've seen so far and I've given it time to digest. When it comes to change, be careful what you wish for. I prefer Sci Fi over SyFy and I won't be changing this blog to Musings Of A SyFy Fanatic. You see, that is just too darn stupid. It's just a bad idea.
