Re: Drabblecast 321 – The Goat Cutter

I will miss him immensely as well. I tried to get him for an interview on Bsides awhile back but his increasing health problems made it impossible. Goat Cutter was Jay's last professional sale and it is surely a less exciting world now for us all without his powerful talent and unique voice and pers...

Help Wanted: Editor, Drabblecast Classic

So, we've been toying for awhile with the idea of starting a new podcast feed called "Drabblecast Classic" which features reruns of old shows from throughout the past 7 years. There's a big 'ol backlog of archived episodes at this point and while Tom's set up handy 25 episode downloadable ...

High Elf on Acid Attacks Woman's BMW

For you Portlanders out there (lookin' at you ROU) In an interview with Vocativ, Bass explained that he mistook the car for a shapeshifting demon. "I wasn't in my right mind. I was still rocking my new pair of elf ears." http://gawker.com/high-elf-high-on-acid-attacks-womans-bmw-with-a-swo...

Re: Bsides 45 – Buried Talents

Not sure I got this one. What happened at the end? It's a little vague and it took a minute to hit me too the first time I read it, but the key sentence at the end is "He took the steak knives." Remember, the tall man in black rejected all the prizes up to that point, so it stands out a l...

"Life is UNFAIR"

Batman crouches on the rooftop, pondering current U.S. race-relations. Unable to recall ever battling or incarcerating a single non-Caucasian villain, he's convinced the problem is somehow endemic within society; a system constantly failing our white-upper-middle-class-young-people-raised-by-brillia...

A Purpose Yet Unknown

The halfling arrived with troubling news. The Mist-Walkers had taken Dunwinter Keep and were amassing for some nefarious purpose yet unknown. He'd been sent to unite the 7 elven-tribes of K'blar, for only then would each take up arms. One final tribe remained... He found their tree blackened by fire...

My Grandfather

I like to think of my grandfather as someone with both hands on the steering wheel, even in the worst of times. I like to think of my grandfather as someone who grew tomatoes and stopped to help strangers. I like to think of my grandfather as someone who came back from World War II just as goofy and...

The Room

Richard awakes in the room. The air is clammy and Melina's pale, flabby thighs stick out from the rolled up blankets. Richard squints to make out the blurry digits on his clock. It is 6:30 AM. It is his 40th birthday. At the bathroom sink Richard rubs his eyes and habitually fumbles for his shaving ...

First Date

"I've built a time machine," the time-traveling man told Clara, on their first date. She never called him again. Well then screw her, the time-traveling man thought to himself. She may have been beautiful, but if she couldn't appreciate his brilliance, good riddance! Still, as the months p...

Re: Body Snatchers (bump* Glass Half Full Prompt)

Just demonstrating how easy it is to bump people's old Drabbles forward to qualify for current prompts. Too bad you can't edit the subject line of other people's Drabbles with Bump for "XX" Prompt or something.

Re: DC 322 – The Carnival Was Eaten, All Except the Clown

Sorry bout that, don't know how I missed. It all should be fixed by Saturday now though, the m4a kept uploading as the old file for some reason, had to rename the file to make it stick.

The Walrus Next Door

A man, his girlfriend, and a wounded walrus just moved into the condo next door. How do I know the walrus is wounded, you ask? Because no normal functioning walrus would ever sound like that, trust me. Each night I listen through the walls to the creature's relentless bellowing; the frenzied huffing...

Re: Drabblecast 319 – Trifecta XXVII

Hah, in the unedited footage you would have heard me ask how many people knew what a podcast was/listened to podcasts and about five people in the crowd of about 30-40 raised their hands. There was also some lengthy banter between a drunk clueless guy in the audience who kept raising his hand to ask...
