Re: Drabblecast 394 - Christmas Special "Dirty Santa"

I don't think Norm gets enough credit for his episode intros. This one was fantastic. Truly inspired. Even though I listened to the episode in February it made me feel all Christmassy inside. And the story was a nice blast from Drabblecast past. Loved the skull Xmas sweater. They're one of the reas...

Re: Drabblecast 396 - Trifecta: Losses & Sacrifices

Holy carp! These were 3 sharp tales. The body horror in... the tale of the phantom elevator victim was gloriously cringe-worthy... and in a GOOD way. :shock: :shock: +1 for my Drabblecast, eh. Edit... Um, I just scrolled up to see the art for this episode. Holy s##t! :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: ...

Re: Drabblecast 397 - Fruit and Words

Whoah boy. This episode sailed right over my head. Fruits? Nuts? Nope. I couldn't get into the tale. I struggled with it... and gave up a third of the way in. Pity. :(

Drabble Classics 28 - Happy Old Year.

Drabble Classics 28 - Happy Old Year.

I just listened to our January 14th instalment. What did listeners think of it? Did you sympathise with the protagonist?
Spoiler:
I had a really hard time sympathising with the protagonist. I would have pushed the guy off the ledge. :shock:

Re: Drabblecast 394 - Christmas Special "Dirty Santa"

That was a fantastic story. The last line... "it was the thought that counts"... was a brutal kick in the head. The protagonist sure as hell deserved the gift... and to have it stolen. What... The... F##k.

It was pure Drabblecast. Me gusta. :-)

Re: Cuddle Zombies?

That was one of the oddest episode to listen to. The artwork didn't do it justice. A wiggling mass.... guhahhhhh! Nice.

Re: Drabblecast 389 - Night of the Living POTUS

This was a fantastic episode! The commentary after the story... AND THAT SONG. OH, LORDY... THAT SONG. I didn't know it has lyrics. It was an oddly hopeful story... Each president had to process the accomplishments and failures of his predecessors. It was a hell of a perspective-generator for the du...

This is a good sign of things to come...

I'm pleased to see Drabblecast revive itself. From ~2015 to the Spring of 2018, I was getting VERY disappointed. Yes, I thought I was being taken for a ride (money coming out of PayPal by ??? for ???). Norm, when you left Escape Artists, I got frustrated, decided to cut my losses, and cancelled my m...

You get my money again!

I'm back in the fold! Drabblecast #1 ...gritty reboot... July 24, 2018. Pre-launch Relaunch: Bases Covered . I listened to that and hustled over to PayPal. I can't wait for some new-fangled crowd-funded nor kick-starter option. 10 US bucks a month (~$13-14 CDN) is what you get . Effective immediatel...

Nope. It’s resting.

I fear silence and infrequent delivery to subscribers (DC-b sides) may cause individuals to make their own conclusions. I loathe to add grist to the rumour mill. I hope the admin release a meta cast to update what's going on.

Re: Still alive?

Sweet FSM... when my iTunes account machine when 'bing... new drabblecast episode', I did a double-take. This is indeed good news. I was a $10/month donor in 2014... and am considering reactivating it.

I sincerely want this weekly audio-magazine to resurface.
