    I'd vote for both more reviews and the music forum for starters. Of course, I'm a music nut, so this could be one reason. :D

    In general, it all sounds pretty sweet to me.

    --Do you skip the game news bits in Rue Morgue too Dwatts? Seems very odd that a gaming feature would make it on a horror site like this BEFORE a music feature....just saying. It's looooong overdue.--

    Sure do. I buy Rue Morgue for its coverage of horror movies and horror dvds. Not for music and games. I have other specialized sites for those. I am sure Dave will do whatever he sees fit, so my opinion doesn't count for anything. Just a view. I have zero interest in a music forum - I wasn't aware there was a games one, or are you tlaking about the "Arcade"? If so, that's a very different thing, you get to PLAY the games - not discuss them. I love music, but I seriously doubt anyone here is into the same types of things. I suspect it will be full of heavy metal and classic rock - things I don't find that interesting these days (the heavy metal angle is pretty funny actually, as it supports a stereotype that doesn't apply to me).

    Just my view. :) Rue Morgue is great, but yeah, some of the sections are incredibly lame, imo.

    Yeah I was referring to the Arcade section.

    As far as a music section goes, I don't think it would be full of heavy metal and R'n'R cuz there are people here who don't like that stuff but do like others like R&B, gangster rap, industrial, goth, movie scores, country, and pop music. So it would be a more specialized section apart from the other off topic threads and movie related sections. As far as playing games being something different, the whole idea of an official HorrorDVDs web radio link would be to allow forum users a direct link to hear horror movie themed music as they scrolled the many posts and reviews that would be forthcoming.

    I have no feelings about a radio link - I seriously doubt I would use that either. I have all the Internet radio I need, thank you. But if you want it, you can vote for it :)

    --others like R&B, gangster rap, industrial, goth, movie scores, country, and pop music--

    Okay okay - I like SOME music scores. As for the rest, I think I'd prefer Heavy metal :D Really, seems a few want a music forum, so maybe Dave will add one. It's just not something that I feel would improve the site. it would all muddy the forum list with yet another off-topic forum. Maybe Dave could then group the non-horrorDVD topics?

    If I were Dave, I'd be thinking of ways of making it the best horror movie site on the net - which wouldn't include diversifying it. There are too many other sites that do these things better. More reviews, more reviewers with different points of view, more articles on movies would vastly improve the core compentency of the site, imo. To me, this is a horror DVD site (hence the URL). So it should concentrate in those areas. Just my opinion is all. I hope you all get what you want.

    Thrash that internet radio thing sounds interesting. Would you have to have music rights or anything to play them on a station? I have no idea, so sorry if it is a stupid question. Also how hard would it be to set it up and keep it running?

    It would be far better, I would think, to simply link to streamed radio. I listen to it every single day, but it's not the type of thing anyone here would likely be interested in (I like news, drama etc). They're usually streamed from the web sites of the radio station, so I expect there is a license issue.

    I listen to Vince Garcia's Super 70s internet radio station too but I would be interested in a horror movie themed station. I would definately listen to it.

    Well I'm sure someone here may already have something like this set up where they would let Dave use their station link here on the site. If not, Dave could always get on to Yahoo Launchcast or Live365 where they allow the user to modify what the station plays by the way of the user voting the selections to be played. Then after finally getting the radio station streamlined for specific content he could add the link to the top of HorrorDVDs forum bar where other members could check out the station themselves. Maybe offer up suggestions to the radio station to further better it and better round out songs that may have been forgotten or not weeded out enough.

    Look at my homepage for reference.

    Naw, mine is a Launchcast radio site tailored to what I like heavy metal and other stuff.

    More reviews, more reviewers, and horror articles. Stick with what brought people here in the first place.

    Well in that case they should post more pics of Rhett in his underwear. Come on people you know that is the biggest reason you joined. :)

    For me, I'd enjoy reviews, especially on Shriek Show titles. They have so many titles I'm curious of but haven't been able to track down a decent review.
