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.

Somewhere, there's a suit with a perfectly reasonable reason why this is the best idea ever.

When the idea backfires, the suit will have a perfectly reasonable explanation for that which will sound like he isn't contradicting his earlier statement.

It is the way of such things. ;)

As always, you've got it. I would love to be part of these meetings. It would be a hoot.

Glad you could breakaway from the midnight feedings to offer some Havremunken wisdom.

Actually, I've got the kindest baby ever, I think. She's one month old tomorrow, and I haven't lost a single night's sleep because of her yet - only crawled out of bed a few times to put the pacifier back in.

But of course I've kept busy.. still following your blog tho, looking forward to the later half of S5 where things start swingin' again. :)

Nice, a little angel. That's great to hear! Kiss her little toes for that!

I remember literally doing feedings and sitting there holding the babies in a near catatonic state after awhile. Everything was getting done, but it was like sleep walking.
