Premium Content Ideas

Thought I would open this up as a Suggestion Box for what Drabblecast Bsides Premium Content subscribers would like to see made available beyond stories. We've got ideas for an App, DC ringtones, DC desktop and mobile themes, a text-based In Search of the Mongolian Deathworm video game, a possible w...

TGIF Lyrics

It's a rare condition, this day and age to read any good news on the newspaper page Love and tradition of the grand design some people say it's even harder to find Well then there must be some kind of magic clue, inside these tearful walls Cause all that I see is a tower of dreams, with real love bu...

Yep, Tom's right. Canceling your subscription and starting a new one is the easiest for all. Thanks for your support Thomas!

Re: B-Sides 26 - The Beast in the Cave

Yah, it blows me away that lil Howie wrote like this when he was 14. If anything, his prose got less purple as he matured. This is what happens when someone gives you "Baby's First Thesaurus" at your baby shower. But if you think kids were weirder back then strawman, just watch Myley Cyrus dance aro...

Re: Dragoncon 2013

Sadly I'll be missing Dcon this year for Worldcon in San Antonio that same weekend. I encourage Drabble-folk to powwow and convene all the same! Wish I could be there. On the other hand, if any DC fans are planning on going to Worldcon/LonestarCon memorial day weekend, the Drabblecast is throwing a ...

Re: Cryptozoology Coloring Book

Awesome!

I agree that a small preview would really bump sales though. Have forwarded to multiple people and most have replied "Wait, I can't see any of it first?"

But I'm glad a picked it up, definitely good times.

Creeper Guy vs. The Mongolian Deathworm

Fun writeup by a fan trying to listen to Drabblecast Bsides #9

Two tips for faster jogging: 1. hot girl in front of you 2. creepy dude behind you. Also, if you're behind a 1. you're probably her 2.

Re: Drabblecast 278 – The End of the World as We Know It

Looking at the cover art, it finally dawns on me that I'm looking at a flowchart. Chose your post-apocalyptic tropes and make yourself an end-of-the-world story/movie. Ya, I LOVE the artwork for this episode too. Made it my desktop wallpaper for the week (replacing a sweet high-res photo of pteroda...

Re: Drabblecast 045 - The Fine Point

I've been re- listening to some of these early ones myself.

Re: 2012 People's Choice : Best Story : Vote!

Tom, I usually agree with ya bud, but Jimmy's Roadside to me was one of the most uplifting stories of the last year-- not depressing! The selflessness and kindness of Jimmy was all the more moving to me when set against the grim fizzling out of the world around him, IMO.

Re: Post apocalyptic audio drama podcast

Almost done with Season 1 and gotta say I'm loving it. Extraordinarily well produced.
Not at all for the faint of heart but of course, neither is the post-apocalypse.
But ya.
This is easily the best produced "Audio Drama" series I've heard on the web or anywhere else. Completely engaging.
