Regrets

Places I could have visited and food I might have tasted.
The times I could have kissed a girl. Sadly it's all been wasted.

Time passes

Another year closer to oblivion. A happy thought, indeed.
I think about the books I've bought but shall never ever read.

As an obsessive backlog buster, I can only say you don't know what you're missing. :wink:

Cranial reverberations

The tick, tick, ticking. And the dong-cuckoos! A cranially implanted cuckoo clock seemed such a great idea at the time.

Re: Citrine

This one has me puzzled (not an uncommon event). First, there's the name "Citrine" . Before reading the Drabble I looked it up. Apparently , "The gemstone Citrine is the official birthstone for the month of November as adopted by the American National Association of Jewelers in 1912. It is also the ...

Re: Drabblecast 341- The Litany of Earth

...but the ending was unsatisfying... As for the story arc, it simply goes nowhere (or was I missing something?). I felt the ending was in keeping with what came before. Given the history alluded to in the story, there's not much to say but that life goes on, we make of it what we can. Earth-bound ...

Re: Our Community

Just as a goldfish is said (wrongly, probably) to have poor short-term memory and so never gets bored in its bowl of water, the same would apply to a sim in SpareInch's scenario... Just drive out of town heading north. If the next place you come to is the same town, approached from the south, you're...

Re: Drabblecast 343 - Captain Confederation

I still reckon a key motivator for super heroes/villains is the excuse to strike nonchalant poses in a body-hugging spandex outfit. ;)

I rather liked the idea that while Super-Villains are only in it for money and power, Superheroes, being more altruistic people, are in it for the cool secret identities, the health insurance, the retirement plan... AND the wealth and power.... And let's not forget the excuse to pose provocativ...

Re: Drabblecast 343 - Captain Confederation

Seems reasonable. I guess we have to make allowances for the strangest of weirdos ;)

An afterthought... This rule ought to be documented somewhere, e.g. in a pinned thread.

Re: Drabblecast 341- The Litany of Earth

I wonder how many DC listeners, strange as we are, are familiar with the past events mentioned in this story resulting in the injustice and maltreatment of the former population of Innsmouth. Confession: six weeks ago I wouldn't have known. With this in mind, I've started a thread, " HP Lovecraft es...

HP Lovecraft essentials

Before I became a regular listener to the Drabblecast my knowledge of the work of HP Lovecraft was pretty non-existent. I'd heard of Lovecraft and the name was often mentioned in other podcasts, e.g. Geeks' Guide to the Galaxy, but it had always been a genre I steered clear of in my reading habits w...

Re: Drabblecast 343 - Captain Confederation

Concerning spoilers... Isn't it up to each forum member not to open the thread for a story until they've listened to it? A. Spoilers cease to be an issue. B. Only then can they comment meaningfully on the story. I have heard the story, btw, :) and I don't regard the computer hack as predictive of th...
