Christmas comes from within

The difference between stringing cat intestine from the roof vs decorating for the holidays is but a matter of opinion.

Re: Casualwear

I support any drabble that makes me chuckle >:D Does anyone else get "snatched" by words like "chuckle", where the more you think about the word, the weirder it gets? Makes me want to start a list. FYI: chuckle (v.) 1590s, frequentative of M.E. chukken "make a clucking noise" (late 14c.), of echoic...

Mark your calendars

The silence stretched out an eternity as Earth strained to catch the first cry of the new year's baby that never arrived.

Re: Drabblecast 265 - Pop Quiz

Wow. You just knew that the test was complete b.s. and there was going to be a twist at the end, but the resolution was just humorous enough and so completely believable that it gave me chills. Bravo, too, that the title positively screamed the ending. Couple that with the perfect atmosphere and you...

Re: Drabblecast 263 – Betty Flesh And The Meat Man

I think I need another listen to wrap my head around this one.

Another note:
I checked again this morning and determined I was indeed made out of meat.

Re: Drabblecast 259 - The Last of the O-Forms

This was one of my favorite stories this year. When people are strange, normal is stranger. Their faces aren't lumpy; yours is too flat. Strange and the twisted make you feel wanted Dollar a head to see you pet a fake cat You're O-Form Deviant from the new norm You're O-Form They come to see you in...

Re: Drabblecast 261 – The People of Sand and Slag

Quite frankly, this one disturbed the hell outta me. Whether it was their blatant disregard for non-modified life or slicing up a dying dog to see what happens or just the vision of lording over a dead planet, this was the scariest story on any podcast this month. The limbless exercise in vulnerabil...

"Come inside the show's about to start. Guaranteed to blow your head apart"

This story depressed me in a most delightful way.

Loved the creepy carnival theme so close to Halloween. Loved the twist ending.

Re: Drabblecast 257 - Judgement Passed

First The Hand of God on PodCastle and now this. I'm loving these stories concerning the nature of God. Or rather how humans act based on their perceptions of the nature of God. What is the point of life anyway? Some people, like the characters in the story see this world as only a way station until...

Diagnostic subroutines had been running, but it also had been monitoring the trajectory of an object with respect to simple principles of physics. And based on variable data provided by an outside...

Re: Aversion Therapy

The advertising copy had been persuasive. "Harness the brain's natural powers! Use empathy to control those cravings away!" And really, the procedure had worked. It hadn't hurt. A brief humming, a bit of dizziness, and it was done. "Please," cried the cupcakes. "We've lost so many of our sisters." ...

Flecks of blood made crimson arcs on the nursery wall as Timmy thrashed
his head wildly about.

Naptime rarely went well.
