Re: Haircuts

Equally thanks for the drabbles of yours in recent episodes that have peaked my interest and got me on here. Mutual backslapping all round, yah? But, but... I've never had a drabble get on the podcast! :( Oh, I get it "(no) drabbles of yours ... peaked my interest". Ouch. That backslap packs quite ...

Re: Drabblecast 261 – The People of Sand and Slag

Despite being overtly brutal there were some lovely sections in this. The whole bit on the beach was oddly beautiful (not counting the dismemberment), full of a distressing spectacle. I always thought that suffering is bad! And alleviating suffering is good. Period. Yet the characters in this story ...

Re: Drabblecast 266 – Little Grace Of The House Of Death

This story belongs in with Aesop's or The Brothers Grimm's works. I will be reading or playing it for as many kids as I can get away with. ASiD (how do you abbreviate that, by the way?) is right, it chimes with Sandman (as Jason already said), and the Loki myth, and Preatchett's Discworld, Aesop, t...

Re: Drabblecast 258 - Brown Dust

Glad you liked the story, you can remember it, come time for the People's Choice Awards (usually March-ish). (Although, this particular story was not one of my favorites and I insist -- Insist I say -- that you vote for my favorites when the time comes. ;) ) I've actually gone right back to the sta...

Re: Haircuts

Interesting, if disgusting, idea. Welcome aboard, TheBigBadG! It was born of a retort I took to using in the face of unoriginal criticism at school. Thankfully my cranial cavity stopped expanding though so the barber still gets my custom in these impoverished times. It was meant to be pointed at th...

Re: Drabblecast 258 - Brown Dust

I'm pretty new to Drabblecast so apologies if I'm missing some stone-cold classic but this is the best story I've heard to date. And that's not to discredit any of the others, because there have been some real corkers. It's the flicks of imagery and metaphor that make it sing. Santos and Adeo 'stink...

Haircuts (Communication Breakdown)

'You've had a haircut,' I told him. 'No,' James replied, clearly annoyed. I laughed at his irreverence but he snapped at me: 'My head's growing faster than my hair, ok?' He's alright, James is. I smiled back at his wry joke. It was a couple of weeks later when I noticed his glasses were tight on his...
