How about a Barsoom website ?
- Hi guys, as we've all noticed, the chat line has been a little quite lately.
Not that I've sent in anything either have I ?.
I'm the guy with the Moon Maid site and as a big ERB fan. I've been lurking
on a few ERB chat sites. At the moment most of the chat is Tarzan, Tarzan,
Tarzan, Jane, Disney, Tarzan.... Tantor, Tarzan.... Personally I really
liked the Disney Tarzan, but I want to talk about Barsoom. I love Barsoom. I
was obsessed with it as a teen, to me ERB is Barsoom.
Anyways, have you guys thought of doing a Barsoom website and linking it to
this list ? You could advertise all over the other ERB sites to try and
increase membership and maybe run monthly or bi-monthly articles or
something (submited by your membership of course )as a bit of a draw. The
whole point would be to contact,and keep in contact with others with similar
On a somewhat differant topic, I know that a Disney Barsoom movie tends
tofloat around as a favorite topic. It's one of mine. I noticed on Deja.com
(appropriatly named huh ?) they have been discussing it, as to whether
Disney is the right studio and all. They don't really seem aware of all of
the smaller branches of Disney like Hollywood pictures, that they produce
the film under. This would allow a non-Disney treatment. Hey, Disney had
it's finger in Starship Troopers. That should suggest they are capable of
just about anything (take that as you will ).I'm enthused about a Barsoom
movie, I mean this year we've seen Tarzan, a new Star Wars and there is
Dune, The Dragon Riders of Pern, Lord of the Rings all in production. Why
not Barsoom ?
