Apparently Channel 49 KPDX is going to change from "MyTV" to "Fox 12 +" on Feb. 12. I think all it is is a name change since MyTV didn't really have any shows of its own, did it? A question: Do they still have "The Edge" in the Oregonian life section? Or am I old for remembering it?

They're following the lead of Fox TV Stations-- they've recently rebranded some of their MyTV stations as "Fox (number) Plus/Xtra/More", including Washington DC, Minneapolis and San Francisco/Oakland (though the station there, KICU, was actually an indie; KRON, the former NBC station, is MyNet there).

They're calling Channel 49 "12 Plus" now? Makes no sense, numerically. Sad to see it completely lose its identity, but the sad truth is, it hasn't had one in a while.

I haven't looked at an Oregonian in months; I have no idea if The Edge is still there.

There's a new subchannel on 8 called "Quest." WHEN are we getting Heroes & Icons? We seem to be getting everything BUT that channel.

I would like to update my list of over-the-air TV stations webpage, but I can't because I can only get a select few stations. I found something interesting on 17.2: It has a clock up top and says "Future channel for weather of the mid-valley KWVT 17.2" and the KWVT logo. I thought it was cool, so I taped 5 minutes' worth. Apparently I can record over-the-air stuff on an ancient VCR. Ha ha, FCC. Anyway, if someone can take a look at my site and tell me what needs to be updated, it'd be much appreciated. TV stations in Salem (and Portland) page.

I promised in the most recent BANG issue that some Tonya Harding material from 1994 would be on the site. It still isn't on the site -- all the tapes are digitized now, but I haven't had enough time to index them all so I know where those clips are.

Will Vinton, however -- I have at least 20 news stories on him and I know exactly where they all are. 'Tis the season.

I did some channel surfing with my antenna. I can't get channels 6 and 32 for some reason. But I did notice channel 2.4 is new. It's called "Stadium." It was showing some football game. Don't know which one, though, the scores were off screen. 49.4 is a Western movie station called "Grit." Excuse me if this is old news, but it's new to me.

Opinion changed from The 7D. I didn't like it, because it's often more bland despite the animation and the writing as well. It's kinda more like Teen Titans Go! I don't even blame on Parry Gripp's music.
Has anyone seen the new Sonic the Hedgehog movie yet? I just did and I LOVED IT! It was such a fun and heartwarming movie and I can't wait to see more of Sonic in the sequel (if it gets made)!
You think the 2016 reboot is the worst entry in the Powerpuff Girls franchise? That honor actually goes to "Powerpuff Girls Z". How about that?
I'm one of those people that's more familiar with Sonic's arch-enemy being called "Dr. Ivo Robotnik" rather than "Eggman".

As I mentioned, Melanie Minichino should definitely sing more.
