If you don’t read Seasons of Tumult and Discord, then you don’t know that I along with Whiskey won their Futurist of the Year award.  (I know you thought STD meant sexually transmitted disease.  Get your mind out of the gutter.)

I would like to congratulate my fellow winner and Spearhead colleague Whiskey.  He has been discussing the death of science fiction on TV in this part of the internet longer than I have, and he deserves this award too.  This award would not have been possible without the efforts of many people.  I couldn’t have done it without Brent Spiner (Star Trek The Next Generation’s Cmdr. Data) calling me an asshat or being viciously attacked by John Scalzi and Dan Savage.  I also would like to thank the crazy chick who kept getting “rage blackouts” from my post and the hundreds (or maybe it was thousands) of women who all told me that I have a small dick.

In many cases a prophet is not recognized in his own time.  I have been more fortunate as we can watch how quickly the SciFi Syfy Channel has descended into a den of wrestling shows, cooking shows, and other entertainment exclusively for women.  This is part of how TV/cable channels are trying to resist the future which means the internet taking over the television system.  Between that and the ideological bent of those who control the media industry, we will see more of this in the future where actual cable channels morph into copies of each other showing the same programming that is designed to only cater to females.  Eventually, even the Weather Channel will succumb to this.  Yes in the future the Weather Channel will change its name and stop reporting on the weather.  Remember you heard it here first.

Once again, thank you for this award, and congratulations again to my co-winner Whiskey.

  1. The weather channel won’t change its name, they’ll just do episodes of “home decor after the hurricane,” (Debbie and her husband Sal had a tree go through their living room, watch as our team of home makeover experts incorporate the tree into a new wilderness motif) “Iron Chef – disaster!” (Which chef can keep his souffle from falling during a volcanic eruption?) and “Celebrity Weather Mishaps” (Angelina Jolie planned everything, except for an earthquake).

  2. I always rejected screen based sci fi as the ‘all show no go’ inbred cousin of the ‘real’ print based genre, but a quick look in my local bookstore today has me admitting it’s over.
    In the average store fantasy and scifi are grouped together, despite the fact they could hardly be more different. The accessibility of fantasy means that the sparse and irregular releases of scifi are practically lost in the crowd. Add to that the fact that now both scifi and fantasy are being washed away in a deluge of 5c vampire novels. FFS. It’s a subgenre of horror not scifi and not fantasy. It doesn’t help that most book stores or public libraries are run by females.

  3. Accolades well deserved.

    I always find it funny how feminized shows always have an abundance of scantily clad women (I can’t even watch the news anymore without getting a boner).

    Dirk Benedict’s (Captain Starbuck) recent article sums it all up.

  4. My local bookstores tend to have acceptable scifi sections.
    Then I realise the books I always end up buying were written 10, 20, 30, 40 even 50 years ago.

    And anything written since 1990 nearly always has the scifi as the ‘background’ to a crime story, relationship story etc

  5. Yes in the future the Weather Channel will change its name and stop reporting on the weather. Remember you heard it here first.

    Meteorology is a patriarchal construct designed to oppress women. There’s no such thing as storm fronts, we have just been socialized by the media to believe that they exist They NEED to change the name goddamnit,it’s only right. Right now, it might as well be the “Rape Channel”.

    Meteorology is just one of a long train of male constructs that abuse women,like law,morals,common sense,capitalism,biology,logic,mathematics, and dildos.

    God, when are you Neanderthals ever gonna enter THIS century? You can’t keep women chained to the kitchen stove with your fancy barometers,doppler radar, or any other wacky phallic rape gizmo you knuckledraggers come up with anymore.

    ARRRRRGGGHHH! I am so fucking pissed off at men right now! I just want to castrate everything with a penis that I see! ARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGHGHGHGHG!

    Weather doesn’t skew as Male in audience as Science Fiction does, so there would be less pressure to change the programming than SyFy did.

    Of course, maybe you’re joking…
