Re: Pop!

Ha. Yeah, being Marshal myself, not Nathan, if this had been my story, it would have been a puffer fish robot. Hmmmm.....

Good story. I like trying to envision a Jersey puffer fish.

Re: Man struck by car while playing real life Frogger

That's nothing. My cousin was killed by jumping off a cliff while riding an ostridge and holding a long pole.

I heartily concur! If you don't mind me asking, where do you you get your music, Norm? I don't want to ruin the magic or anything. I'm just curious since I am starting to produce a bit myself.

Re: Drabblecast 192- Rangifer Volans by Tim Pratt Drabble- Z

Wow! Just when I thought I had my nominees for best of 2010 figured out. The Brad character reminds me of a story I wrote once where Christopher Robin had grown up and had the ability to manifest things from his imagination. However, Mr. Pratt's story far surpasses mine. Fun. Fun. Fun. With two twis...

Re: Man Changes his Name to Captain Awesome

You know, I very much enjoy the show Chuck, but c'mon, really? It's like that guy who changed his name to "Trout Fishing in America" because it wouldn't fit nicely when filling out forms.

Re: Fan Cast (Dribblecast Decision Making)

The Dribblecast backlog is no more. Thanks to swamp for the prompt. Partially self-serving I guess, but I really loved Mrs. Mica's verision of Scattercat's "Jar Nearby" story. It was supreme. The sfx were perfect, especially the pop. Also, great to have Loof up there as well. I did notice, Strawman...

Re: Drabblecast 185- Horror World 2025: Part II

I would just like to offer a loud and long applause to Norm for these episodes. Not just because he invited me along for a small part , but more becuase I honestly do "appreciate the crap-load of time and effort that went into it". It makes me proud that I donated to the podcast last month and have ...

For those of you who liked Early Riser on the Dribblecast should really go check out "The Taste of Starlight" at Lightspeed Magazine this month. It takes the concept to a whole new level.

Re: Drabblecast 184- Horror World 2025

So for me, referencing the bigger picture without completely explaining what's going on is part of the fun, but YMMV. That said, if those references weren't in there, I'd agree that it was, erm. Less than clever misdirection? Lying? Cheating? (Although who am I to say? It may have been all that any...

Re: Drabblecast 184- Horror World 2025

Finally noticed this thread. Thanks for the kudos folks! I personally felt my performance was kind of weak, so it means a lot to get compliments. :oops: I have a particular fondness for Tom's and Marshall's voices, which are just plain... the audio equivalent of 'photogenic'. Everybody did great th...

I am the worst offender. I am giving attribution, but I should be using podsafe music, or getting permission from the artist.

Re: Drabblecast 184- Horror World 2025

What fun! Norm did a fantastic job (as usual) putting all of that together. It was great to be a part of it! Screaming can be quite theraputic. Production aside, I think the story was great, too. I'd be interested to know how Kevin and Dave divided the work and how they collaborated on the plot. It ...

Did you also name him Sue? (That reference may be too dated, so if you didn't get it, go listen to some Johnny Cash.)

Re: Fan Cast (Dribblecast Decision Making)

I guess this is an appropriate place to point all of you to a naration I recently did of "The Premature Burial" by Edgar Allan Poe. I did it just for fun, and because I really enjoy Poe, especially this time of year. You can listen to it here if you like. It runs at just under 40 minutes. I started ...
