As can happen with some arrivals, I don't have a great deal to respond to directly today. I've been ruminating on a column or two regarding the current State of the Union as it applies to the realms of the Fantastic today -- what with Star Wars continuing to fail, Marvel continuing its slump, and Doctor Who falling completely into the crapper, it would seem -- but ... well, you folks know me. I'm really not one who likes to court controversy, you know? I don't always feel competent much less qualified to sound off on such matters as it gets into click-bait territory fairly quickly, and that's not what we're about at SciFiHistory.Net. I do try -- TRY -- to celebrate the good, the bad, and the ugly as many of you know; and such a position requires a reasonable amount of independence. That doesn't mean I don't have opinions on such topics because I do; it's just that I try to approach almost each and every topic as impartially as I can ... but, yeah, even I have limits.
So ... you may see a column or two in the days ahead. It honestly just depends upon whether I decide what I have to say is worthy of your attention. Like I said, I'm not one to shout from the rooftops unless I feel I have something deserving your ears, so we'll see what develops. It certainly couldn't be worse than the alternative, am I right?
Well, let's dispense with those pleasantries and get down to business, shall we?
To the person who asked about whether or not SciFiHistory.Net has a podcast?
Again: I'd love to do one.
It's a matter of time, effort, and resources.
I've always said if I had more resources, then I'd definitely do something. It probably wouldn't be the kind of thing that's done so well already on the YouTube.com, that being sounding off on the topics of the day as it pertains to the big franchises and the like. There are far too many great voices out there already doing that, and I just don't feel I'd have much to add to that mix. Sure, my opinion could be interesting -- thank you very much -- and, still, I've always tried to listen more than I've tried to speak. As a listener, I think I draw more information in, and this gives me the unique advantage to collecting facts, figures, and impressions that, ultimately, maybe I'd like to present in its own format. So ... we'll see.
The bottom line there is that if I'm going to do one then I'd want it to be something both worthy of your time and mine. What that could be? Well, I'm not sure I know just as of yet, but I continue to ponder the possibilities, as would any pundit.
So ... thanks for asking once again.
In the meantime, how about your daily dose of trivia?
As always, thanks for reading ... thanks for sharing ... thanks for being a fan ... and live long and prosper!
