  1. Randy says

    I think auctioning the Babylon five VHS tapes would be a great idea. I would be interested in bidding on them.

  2. says

    I will say I was amused by the voice mail I sent in several shows back is still bringing comment. Though I will not try and sell Lost again as i think I made my point the first time around, I will saay Evo sumed up my opinion on scifi. It is a little broader than some definitions being tossed around.

  3. says

    I’d like to reinforce the NTSC VHS compatibility issue, from the UK viewpoint: most VCRs available here in the last 10 years will play NTSC tapes. Some old TVs, however, might have problems.

    There’s a name for the general idea that you were talking about after the SoSF auction idea: it’s called “the Long Tail” (see & If one ascribes to the thought in Wikepedia–“In situations where popularity is currently determined by the lowest common denominator, a Long Tail model may lead to improvement in a society’s level of culture”–Mike just may get his wish about thirteen-year-old girls…no, wait, that’s Lolita…his hope that movies will be geared toward thinking adults.
