Re: Drabblecast 289 – The Cold Equations

Haha! When I saw there was a comment from Abby Hilton on this story, I almost deleted it. Why? because it would have been interesting to see if I could write my own Abby Hilton comment on this story, then see how close I came to her's. So I did that the lazy man's way, in my head. I've got to say, ...

Re: Drabblecast 289 – The Cold Equations

When I saw this story in my podcatcher, I almost deleted it. I've heard it before, and I hate it. But...it's a Bryan Lincoln and Norm Sherman production, so...I listened. And I still hate it, although it was very well-produced. It is an effective story (as well as affective), and it does make profou...

Re: Drabblecast 246 – The Kidney

Oy, wrong hepatitis! You can get Hep A from practically anything - poorly washed dishes at a restaurant, putting your hands in your mouth after touching dirty stuff (like money or a railing or a doorknob...). You don't usually know where you got it. It's mostly a 3rd world disease, and it's not an S...

Re: Drabblecast 232 – Valentine’s Day With The Gods

I know, I know, this is a "weird stories" podcast and we were just talking about atheist mantises, but really? I'm not even sure I can get into the full wtf-ness of this statement. *snerk* Because stuff Norm says on Drabblecast is always meant to be taken literally and seriously. Best lin...

Actually, shelts come in 3 flavors (yeah, I said "flavors," ASID; try not to get overexcited) - fauns (shelts with hooves), panauns (shelts with paws), and nauns (shelts with neither hooves nor paws). Mermaids would be a type of naun. Given his choice, I believe Norm would be a selkie - a ...

Norm Interview!

I did an interview with Norm for Cowry Catchers podcast, where he's a major voice actor. If you're a fan of Norm, you'll probably enjoy the interview. We talked a lot about Drabblecast, as well as the new CD. Content warning for extreme silliness :wink: Interview Part 1 - http://bit.ly/u8McpX Interv...

Re: Drabblecast 219 - The Big Splash

Aw, the Charlotte's Web reference was perfect, Norm! Both after the spider story and the main feature. You excel at weird, but fitting juxtaposition. Any child who loved to torture themselves with that movie will get it instantly.

I once owned a black plastic rat named Templeton.

Re: Parsec Award... again...

Yep, Norm has a set of matching book-ends (or he will when I hand it over...if I hand it over. 8) .

Of course, he needed a set! One book-end? Lame.

Re: Drabblecast 214 - The Wish of the Demon Achtromagk

Adorable! I love Eugie's stories, and she hit this one out of the park.

I'm imagining Ellie years later with her husband or boyfriend - "Honey, do we really have to sleep with your teddy bear?"

Ellie: "Yes, it's important that Bear feels loved. You have no idea how important."

This. Now I understand.

You need short descriptions, AKA a synopsis, of each episode. This will be searchable by Google. That wasn't so hard, was it? :D

I listened to Norm deliver this speech and said, "Huh?" Now I've read it in text, gone to Bo's site and seen him talk about it, and I still have no idea what you're asking people to do. I suspect I'm not the only one who's confused. Exactly what task are you delegating here? What are peopl...

Re: Gigantic wombat on steroids

The best part of this article is the casual toss-off in the last paragraph. It is home to an array of prehistoric treasures, including the remains of a tree-dwelling crocodile, a carnivorous rat kangaroo and a marsupial lion. Dude! Tree-dwelling crocodiles? Carnivorous rat kangaroo? I have to go loo...

Conner vs the airline staff - *win* :D Although I'm still hoping for Conner vs the TSA.

Re: Drabblecast 202 / 203 - Boojum

Love this. I've read stories about sentient ships before, but the idea of a pirate ship that literally devours other ships is genius. Science fiction usually focuses on human invention, but I really love the occasional story that plays more with alien biology than human tech. Also, I love that the p...

The only way we keep him going is by saying "Just one more episode, then you're done. Just one more!" each week. We give him a day or two to forget about how hard it is, then coax another episode out of him. Aw, you're probably right. At least 201, Norm. You can do it! ...Or I'll start fo...
