XM Gore? I resemble that remark.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

XM Gore? I'd love to see that channel's logo. Was Igor busy packing the forclosed castle or crypt?

Egads a quarter? I'm broke.....stone cold broke

Cinemagic has the best Halloween themed programming. If you enjoy the season, you should definitely check it out. It will be what I'll miss the most about XM if Sirius axes Cinemagic. If XM is going out, this is a very cool send off.

Perhaps the logo should be an XM pink slip signed my Melvin Alan Karmazin.

Before we had Igor, now we have sound effects.

I'm not happy.

I do, however like the picture.

FYI - XM Gore and Sirius Scream will be playing the exact same content.

I've got a perfect idea for one of the XM channels for Halloween (although they probably won't do it), air the audio of old Scooby Doo TV episodes and movies. I say this because up until a few years ago Cartoon Network and Boomerang aired marathons of Scooby Doo episodes pretty much every week in October, as a long time Scooby fan I thought that was pretty cool, I guess this year since Cartoon Network or Boomerang won't be doing any marathons i'll have to settle for watching my Scooby DVD's. Anyway back to XM's Halloween programming, I wish one of the XM channels would do what I mentioned although they probably won't do it.
