The Evolutionist said Sinclair begat Amstrad which begat Microsoft, strangely enough the Creationist said the same.

Re: Drabble Reviews Blog

Any body seen The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnasus? I saw it a couple of months ago, and while (like most Gilliam stuff) it isn't perfect it has some moments of genius, casting Tom Waites being one of them. It looks gorgeous and the reworking with Depp, Law and Farrell picking up after Ledgers death ...

Re: Drabblecast 154 - Family Values by Sara Genge

Great drabble, great story. The feature story is really solid. Sex and politics is a winning combination. It did seem ruder than when I heard it on EscapePod, is that a function of Tracy's reading?

Irritated, the mouse bit the God's head off.
