What's In a Name?

With all the commentary floating around today about SciFi.com's announcement to rebrand itself SyFy, I thought I would try it on for size. Hmm what do you think - SyFyGy.ca anyone?

  1. Um, where's the Scifi? All I see is urban fantasy?

  2. UrbanFantasyFella.ca just doesn't have the same ring to it!

  3. Hey Jim sorry you may not have seen the write-ups elsewhere on the name change. Check out John Scalzi's blog here - http://whatever.scalzi.com/2009/03/17/the-venereal-disease-channel-imaginatizes-greatastically// LOL this is my attempt at a little sarcasm re: the issue. Yep mostly review urban fantasy these days but I am still a SciFiGuy.

    Actually Mark that's not bad :)

  6. Ok, thanks for enlightening me on the urban fantasy/sci-fi content explanation. I’ve nothing against urban fantasy, in fact I have some of it on my book shelves right now.

    As for John Scalzi even don’t get me started.

    BTW, .ca.... is SciFiguy right here in Canada?

  7. Bella Lee SF, SciFi, science fiction they are all cool with me, but SyFy, sheesh.

    Thanks Scott.

    Hagelrat it really seems to have gotten almost universal disdain out there. A good controversy is always fun :)

    Jim yessirree SciFiGuy.ca is indeed in Canada down Ontari-ari-ario way.

  11. Hi Rowena - you are absolutely right! The Sci Fi Channel folks are out of their gourds.
