Would there be sufficient interest to add a board dedicated to discussion of VSF media (books, music, movies, computer and vido games)?

Coyotepunc and Hatshepsuut30 Jul 2015 12:06 p.m. PST

I am always in favor of MOAR BOARDS!!!1!!! but in this case I don't really think there is enough VSF media out there to go on this suggested board.

You are forgetting all the "steampunk" books on the market. It's a genre I rather like, before anyone says anything. That said, I probably wouldn't contribute much -- I don't really contribute to the other media boards as is.

Dear Mr Editor in Chief

I believe the usual way these things are done here is that the aspirant board creator (in this case, yourself) is advised to start a "poll".

Sure, why not?
Just totally exclude anything with "punk" in the title.

And this is the Poll Suggestions board. grin

I am in!

Cyrus the Great30 Jul 2015 4:14 p.m. PST

I think there'll be more contribution to this board in the future, especially in crowd funded movies as well as the usual literature. Count me in!

StarfuryXL530 Jul 2015 8:52 p.m. PST

Of course we should.

And we should also have a -Punk Board, for any and all -punk genres. Who's in? Winston? evil grin

Winston Smith30 Jul 2015 10:26 p.m. PST

I will turn that off.
Corsets and rivets. …..

might we afterwards move ALL media boards to the plus side?

I have a pretty decent VSF book collection, both original (the old "scientific fantasy") and modern interpretations, so I'd be in to discuss what's good and what's not (both the old stuff and the new stuff can be hit and miss).

I have no idea what VSF music would be, but I'd be down for an education in that too.

tsofian Sponsoring Member of TMP31 Jul 2015 6:24 p.m. PST

VSF music includes Eli August, Professor Elemental, Steam Powered Giraffe, Water Street Bridge, The Gentlemen That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing and a whole lot more

I have no idea what VSF music would be…

One does, even with Terry's suggestions, risk running afoul of folk who'll yell 'Down with PUNK!' You'll excuse me if I offer a couple with proper trepidation.

Abbey Park is a group that's been made into figures of 'air pirates' by RAFM. For a good bit of fun, as well, try You Tube with a search for 'pikedevant.'

I have a secret crush on Cherie Priest. Even though her zombies are unscientific.

Up with punk!
