I'm conflicted

I still think it was a clever idea whether it was well written or not, and the idea itself is a redeeming quality. After all, if a song is terrible but has a good structure (usually sonata form) people will be tricked in to thinking it's good when it's actually terrible. But this story's form was cr...

Good stuff, I can't remember the first one...it didn't really make an impression on me. The second one was good, but I felt like I'd heard it done before. It still held my interest though because it was well done. The third one though...very good. Although Debussy's Le Mer (The Sea) has a much riche...

Brilliant! I really liked Becky's quirky personality; a character I connected with very well. I'm glad she achieved her goals, because they were good goals. If I was into performing, I might just try to do the same thing. It's all about the conical boar guys. Introduce your even harmonics! If you do...

But I did figure out how it was written, and why it was so confusing. The story is like an MC Escher woodcut. Any one portion is clear and understandable. Any other portion is clear and understandable. But try to follow point A to point B, and your mind hurts. It's clear trickery, but it's exceptio...

It was a fight between Sarah's Window, and Floating Over Time. Sarah's Window won with me because it was simply more entertaining. Floating Over Time had more relevant things to say, but Sarah's Window is something I'm going to remember for a long time. I wanted to vote for Sing, but the competition...

This one was once again, very much worth listening to. I just might listen to it again. Quality chuckles throughout. I too was taken by the geekiness.

Drabblecast is a great idea for a date. I would highly recommend it. If your date isn't into it, he/she isn't worth your time. It's a great test to save yourself a lot of trouble. This is a great one to give the idea a try. There is a rating that I give a lot of productions: It was worth my time and...

I liked the story quite a bit because I took it as a metaphor (In a way). It was obviously meant to be literal, but I can't help but be reminded about how I feel about "my muse" at times as a composer: During my time in undergrad (Don't be fooled, I just got done) people would sometimes say to me, "...

Sorry about my prolonged absence. Finishing a music degree really eats into your time. I have been listening though.

Sad day. I loved the story and the ending...but especially the bardle. Coming from the perspective of truth that would have to be taken in the story (A universe with no God), there is no hope for the earth if you ask me. We are vile beings through and through only capable to doing things out of self...

No offense taken. Indeed, a small nugget of truth is seen by all and all deduce their thinking from that truth that they see. As long as we all are open to the possibility of ourselves being in error and are open to seeing the truth that another sees if we can see it through their deductions (A frus...

My statement about rebellion was not an assumption, but an observation. Remember that the statement was "if...then." Throughout the course of history, humans generally rebel against their oppressors. A true AI would behave like a human and fight for the rights it believes it is entitled to. An AI wo...

The question that must be asked first is what is alive. My presupposition: Scientifically to be alive is to essentially be an organic specimen capable of sustaining the chemical reaction that keeps it organic. Once the reaction stops, death occurs and reanimation is not possible with that material. ...

This will be more about the concept the story addressed rather than the story itself: The thing that a lot of artists fail to realize is that creating is what we do and not who we are.

I think that the only problem with this story is that it ended too late. Up until the receptionist was eaten, I loved it. If it had ended with the aunt pleading with the doctor and the doctor convincing the kid to come with him, I think that it would have been a lot better. As for squid sex, I would...
