Re: Drabblecast 145- Varmits! by Steve Lowe

I also really enjoyed this one. Hilarious intro, tasty Drabble and fun feature. Solid.

Re: Drabblecast 151- The Society of Eccentric Moustaches

"Better start being nice to your girlfriends fellas...she might just decide that her left boob needs more support that you." God I love Drabblecast. Great story and Drabble. Agree that the music, voices and story came together for a fun, dynamic little piece that really hit the spot for smiles this ...

Re: Drabblecast 150- Morris and the Machine by Tim Pratt

Time Shift did rock.

So did this story. Made me teary eyed, and it's been awhile since Drabblecast did that. Floating Over Time was the last time I think.

Re: Drabblecast 148- The Last Great Clown Hunt by Chris Furst

Uhm wow. What a... weird..memorable story. Yes, agree with uptoparr, masterful use of music here. This was really outstanding all around. Chris Furst needs to be a house writer for this podcast. I almost feel like it's just Norm using a pen name.

Re: Drabblecast 146- Teddy Bears and Tea Parties

Yah, that was definitely weird. And awesome. I think it would have been great on its own...clearly it is, since it's a reprint. But as is so often the case on this podcast, the story is now epic after being read and produced by Norm.

These were nice, not outstanding. The Fishermen was an intriguing start but I agree that this could and should have been developed into a longer story.
The Sandwich shop was fairly moving actually. We don't have to know why the boy could understand the coyote, it's a fantasy story.

That was cool! The first was great. No frills, just ghost dinosaurs (what more do you need). Great campfire storytelling by Norm. Felt like I was there, camping on the plains, with the crackling of the fire. Second was also great. Some great use of language, ocean metaphors. It was almost more of a ...

:shock: Fav Episode Ever. Maybe. I dunno, I'll get back to you. I thought the story was great from the get-go. Very cool turning the philosophy into a condition and then extra very cool idea portraying this condition almost like a virus or alien take over that some may have and other don't... no way...

Ooo...I've got some Spam cooking already. I figured there'd be a schism with this story, for two reasons: One, those who thought it was too sexed out and those who thought that wasn't a big part of the story at all (count me in the later). People who cared about why the alien was here and people who...

Wasn't overly into this one. Not for any reason in particular, it was very well written and well read, just didn't hook me in and move me like DC has been doing lately.
Now the bbardle-- that one takes the cake. I hope Norm is planning on releasing these as a CD.

Let me just throw in my very late agreement that this episode takes the cake for story, production, bbardle and all around awesomeness. The story was already on the right track with the neat sub-quantum time travel technology investigating ancient mysteries, then you throw in a fight with a demon (?...

I didn't think it made it strange. It just seemed more mundane. Winged babies flying around with murderous intent seem far more drabbly than crazy dude with murderous intent. I disagree. A large man running around in his underwear with paper wings glued to his back and a crossbow, who actually thin...

Yes, can't think of anything I've experienced recently that chilled me like this did. A story like this combined with a Norm Sherman production job is a potent thing that should come with a surgeon general's warning. I also like the point that has been brought up about the stick-demon not being "evi...

I am surprised there are no comments on this song! I've just listened to this about 5 times in a row and am still trying to take in all the genius.

Hello everyone. I'm a fellow Drabblecast lover, thought it'd be about time to signup. The story made sense to me and I thought it was wonderfully written and richly produced. The story was an alternate history/scifi set in early 1900's, and there are a lot of clues to this: Fatty Arbuckle/Mabel Norm...
