Re: The Decision

Great opening paragraph!

I don't get the ending, though. Is there a reference to some pop culture thing I missed?

Welcome aboard, Wanderingmarmot!

Nah. The first version's better, IMO, more disturbing.
Nothing wrong with making us readers think for our squick. Makes the groans that much louder. ;)

Re: Start Up

Here's a link: gimletmedia.com/show/startup/

I'm holding out for a service that filters out bad episodes and reruns (NPR podcasts quite frequently rerun a show and don't even bother to indicate that it's a repeat!) from my existing feeds.

Metamorphosis

The first line of Metamorphosis (by some old dead dude called "Kafka") makes a pretty good twabble:

“As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a monstrous vermin.”

Coincidence? Surely not.

Re: Post your Twitfic Twabbles Here! (General Content)

After years in zero gravity when legs became less important to move from here to there everyone started farting around. :P So they became ass-tronauts? When they entered a room they were said to "butt in"? Collisions happened when someone was "boweled over"? "It's a gas, man!" And, of course, "Flam...

Re: Drabblecast 359 - Trifecta: Unnatural Growth

These were 3 damn good short stories, harkening back to what I first loved about Drabblecast years ago. These days, when I can't predict where a short story is going to go and I'm still satisfied when it gets there, that's a major win. One sound effect seemed out of place (or maybe that was just tra...

Lot's of sites do and most phpBB installations too.
Good to know you consider me a foe, though. :| :wink:

Note that the friend/foe functionality is almost useless... You can't see what your enemies are saying about you and your friends have no indication that you have actually friended them.

Put the "Art" in fart

If it's a good thought
don't spoil it
