Re: Post your Twitfic Twabbles Here! (General Content)

You're familiar with the million monkeys with a million typewriters eventually coming up with Shakespeare. What's the over/under on a hundred monkeys producing a twabble?

Hey, keep it down, back there!

*Do you have any idea how noisy a hundred monkeys are?*

Unread posts, difficult to spot?

I've got a little nit to pick, maybe ASID can help. Recent designs for Drabbleclassics in the forums have made it difficult to spot unread posts. Instead of coming up yellow highlighted until read, I have to check out the dates and times to find out why the 'Read' thread is still yellow after I have...

Re: Life's little pleasures

My take is less nefarious, and simpler. It is that charity is its own reward. I wondered, because of the "eccentric, some would say weird" line, and the fact that this is, face it, the Drabblecast in the month of October, in which everything is always nefarious. But why would pondspider walk away fr...

Re: Drabblecast 338 - The Crevasse

I like audio drama. Back before DC, I listened to the story station on XM, "where the pictures are in your head". I think I would have done this one a little different. First, it's true about timing. I don't care for the narrator reading "the dogs barked" and suddenly hearing the clip of dogs barkin...

Re: Hitomi Can See You [Category: Halloween]

I just tossed the article link in to note the expression is more commonly "cut and dried".
I wondered where that came from, and found it interesting that it was a reference to herbs... which, when cut and dried, are complete and ready for sale.

Re: Classics 01 (EP 115) - Clown Eggs

Clown stories are the best. Jay Lake was a personal favorite, (rest his soul). Last Great Clown Hunt also quite worthy piece of Coulrophobia.

Asterix and Obelix were my favorites in French class. Almost made up for the fact they think Jerry Lewis is a comic genius.

Re: self-searching

I can only imagine the thrill that comes with actually getting a story (as opposed to a drabble or twabble) accepted for the august halls of The Drabblecast. August is Lovecraft, for whom the thrill is gone. But the September halls are available. Seriously, if I'd known how awesome episode 340 was ...

Okay. But part of that problem is his Notorious Forum Hoggedness. He probably remembers which ones were used, so he can find the post date and check the show for that period. Reading all 4000+ of your own post...good times.

Re: Something to Prove

Americans have an expression: "Busier than a one-legged man in an ass- licking competition." Typo? Or just common usage? It's funny. I read that and saw no error... " ass-licking " seems a natural progression from plain " licking ", to beat someone in a contest of some kind. You're right, it just s...

Re: Drabblecast 340 - On a Clear Day You Can See All the Way

What a cool idea, nicely executed. Dave Robison should actually have a talk show... And then he should just sit back one day and play this.
WotW caused panic back in the days when people trusted the government. Now that no one trusts the government, Dave might conceivably be arrested as a terrorist.
