Say, Norm, what's your day job? My wife wants to know. Do you do the music full-time or is that a second moonlight enterprise? I work for a newspaper, an organ of the evil mainstream press, spurner of the profound and purveyor of the lowest common denominator. I make ads, but most of the products a...

I have thought of other possible final lines that would have worked for this story- not just about the end being a joke. There are endings that might have said more about what the author was presenting on guilt. What if Brian just dropped the monkey in a trash can on his way out- like Luke said? Wou...

Hehe thanks. This one distracted me a bit too much from the necessary tediums of life and I'm still trying to catch up.
Glad people enjoyed though.

I especially liked the Drabble- What's the title Kevin, is that a figure of speech I've never heard?

Whoa, I just checked out EP after Tweedy's comment (thanks for the heads up!) That's exciting- Steve's a swell guy for doing that. As far as posting in here, you guys do your thing! It might get more structured later but hell, this is drabblecast- it's more than 10 minute stories- start a thread abo...

I dunno, when I was first reading this story I figured out pretty soon that the fat guy was getting powers from the suit- I hadn't considered that the title gave anything away, it seemed like the suspense was seeing what would happen to him. The suit was wearing the fat guy- things are bound to go b...

I'm a big fan of Lovecraft- this story very much fits that old form. Narrator runs into a strange circumstance or person, becomes obsessed with trying to figure things out and when he does he gets himself in trouble. They are usually set up like this, as if being interviewed. It's a great formula (a...
