Con - FU - sed about Jetset

Today Bill Cammack posted in the Yahoo videobloggers group that http://jetsetshow.com is now http://epicfu.com/. I was really shocked about this and I'm not sure why I'm shocked and I'm not sure why the shows creators Zadi Diaz and Steve Woolf would change the name of Jet Set to EPIC-FU.

At first I thought it was a legal decision and that they must have had a run in with Next New Networks. But after watching the first episode I saw that they were still with Fred, Herb and Tim so it wasn't that.

I thought about calling Steve and Zadi but they work all night and are likely sleeping so I visited their site and found:

"Wasn't this show called JETSET?

Yes, it surely was. From June 2006 until October 2007 JETSET was born, grew up, and thrived. But it wasn't unique, and we reached a point where the name was no longer right for what we were doing and where we wanted to go.

With EPIC-FU we have something unique that we can fully own. And it's just cooler, to be honest. :)"

Okay, I'm starting to get my head around it. I just hope Zadi doesn't dye her hair blond next just to be "cooler."

Thanks for the blog post, Tim. Here's one from me to help explain why we did it: http://blog.smashface.com/2007/10/from_jetset_into_epicfu_why_we.html

Thanks for the post Tim.

Ha! No, don't think I'll be coloring my hair blonde any time soon. ;)
