Re: Drabblecast 183- Angel of the Ordinary by Tim Pratt

I LOVED this story. Maybe my favorite Tim Pratt story so far. And I agree that the reading phenomenal.

Re: Drabblecast 185- Horror World 2025: Part II

I thought this was great! The conclusion more than satisfied the great build up of part one. I've never seen West World but I loved the obvious tongue in cheek pandering to classic sci-fi movies and others in this story. So over the top it had to be written with drabblecast in mind. Selena/Kyle is c...

Re: Drabblecast 181- Funeral Song for a Ventriloquist

Another great non-Norm reading. Also, funny drabble. The musical production, great reading and amazing story really came together in a way that I see this one making top 5 at the end of the year. Love the last line.

Re: Drabblecast 179- The Red Bride by Samantha Henderson

I really really really loved this one. I loved the fairytale style narrative and the world building, the gradual well-paced way that the story revealed the horrific ending through alien analogies. Henderson's stories have always been a treat on Drabblecast. Also, I have to say that I think this is t...

Re: Drabblecast 176- Cinderlands by Tim Pratt

Very creepy, well written, produced and read. The whole police brutality thing seemed a little tacked on and out of place to me, and the next door neighbor reminded me of Wilson off of Home Improvement, but other than that I really enjoyed it. Actually, now that I think about it, visualizing Tim All...

Re: Drabblecast 177- Floaters by David D. Levine

An interesting, fresh concept delivered well, with the usual DC values. Loved the Behind Blue Eyes music before hand, nice subtle intro. Also the "I can tell that we are gonna be friends" by the White Stripes playing during the Arizona immigration laws bit cracked me up. And you caught &q...

Re: Drabblecast 173- Go Beep by Aliya Whiteley

Can I just say that this week's episode music/soundtrack was brilliant! Hearing Nirvana's music stretched and molded in such a unique setting actually made me appreciate ole Kurt Cobain's genius a bit more. It really fit perfectly in a way I never would have thought it could. So my only complaint wi...

Re: Drabblecast 172- Trifecta XIII

Maybe there is something, but the only thing I caught, and it seems to be the most overt connection of all, is the mentioning of scarring in both. I guess also that both are using their imaginations in ways that come back to bite them.

Re: Drabblecast 172- Trifecta XIII

The 6 Six Drabbles was my favorite, although I also really liked the other two, specifically the tone of Moose Fork and the read and general concept of Waiting for Grim. I've listened to the 6 Drabbles of Separation a few times now and here's my take. Working with the Six Degrees of Separation premi...

Re: DC 170 & 171- Mongoose by Sarah Monette and Elizabeth Bear

I think a big faceoff with a bandersnatch at the end would have been too corny Hollywood. Finding out Mongoose was a domesticated baby BS, along with the subtle analogy with Irizarry being domesticated by Sanderson (or vice versa) was a nice ending. Loved the production, the whole thing was fantastic.

Re: Drabblecast 168- Route Nine by Samantha Henderson

I'm certain you meant to type that you listened to it twice because you wanted to hear Norm's grizzled voice. 'Cause the delivery is what makes this my favorite podcast. I agree, Norm's readings are unparalleled. But what really makes me agree is that even when Norm isn't reading, he consistently f...

Re: Drabblecast 166- Jubilee by Tim Pratt

I liked it. I thought the portrayal of grief was genuine and moving. I take it that those who thought it was meh do so because either this area fell flat for them or there just wasn't as much action as they are used to in a DC story? I agree with veganvamire that some of the inner narrative from the...

Oh God, the rap about Utah in the outro was priceless. Even beat his "Electoral Collage" rap back in the intro of that last Saki story. Screw eminem, having Norm pull this stuff out every week for the, I dunno, couple thousand at most that listen to this show, is like having our own person...

Re: Drabblecast 163- Once a Month on a Sunday by Ian McHugh

This is one of my favorites in a while. Maybe not best of 2010 so far but a wonderful story. I really appreciated and enjoyed McHugh's attention to detail like the tin bucket bumping against the little girls calf as she ran down to the creek, dried-up berries like little brown owls, the dark spot fl...

Ha ha, that was excellent - echoes of JG Ballard anyone? . YES! I totally thought High Rise meets Monty Python. High five Phenopath. Come to think of it, Ballard has some great short stories that would be awesome to hear on Drabblecast. Too bad they won't be in public domain for quite some time and...

Re: Drabblecast 158- Dr. Diablo Goes Through the Motions

Oh God, that Drabblenews had me in tears. Brilliant. Even before the Little Shop of Stemcells music started, the whole artsy hipster vs. redneck vs. snobby elitist vs. porn star, with accompanying combative music mixing together into one eventual chaotic mess was just great.

Re: Drabblecast 157- Brief Candle by Ruthanna Emrys

This was a thoughtful, melancholy and provocative story. I enjoyed the tale of the protagonist who was so obsessed with her scientific agenda that she was oblivious of the patently obvious consequences. I guess that this culture had no concept of old people's homes; much better to swim off and make...
