I enjoyed the story very much but the difference in the reverberant sound quality between the bathroom or subterranian locale where Cat did the recording jarred with the uber-quality production values that Norm has become semi-famous in the podcasting world for. (I was tickled to hear my Pie-poll-po...

The extreme intrangicence of the stances help by both factions and the logical but ludicrous arguments that resulted (particularly coming from "the sheltered") had the feel of an entry in "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" to me.

Bravo, I found it most amusing.

As long as you're willing to entertain the thought of self-replicating computer programs as being alive. They takes bites of bits and turn them into new programs. Yay! A computer program does not replicate itself . The computer on which it is running replicates it. A program is just a list of instr...

Podcasts, video games, music, movies, good-ol paper books: TV just can't compete.
With the advent of DVR and Tivo, TV has become just another Podcast portal, imo.

Can't wait til my next fix of the "Lost" podcast.

What's up with that island, anyway.

My favorite line was Norm's robotic "I never liked him..."

Ya know with the technical proficiency he shows on the guitar, I'm beginning to wonder about that guy...

What was the score on the Turing Test section of your SAT's, Norm?

Poor cake is such an underdog. She can use your support.

I think I saw this event covered on "Golem Cops" on the Automaton Channel. Is there really anything more pathetic than a neglected golem? I don't think so. Charming story. I particularly enjoyed the vocal affectations of the fawn in charge of investigating the incident. Truly a strange story and muc...

Re: thoughts

But that, in itself, would prevent her from being like the "original." Her road being pre-paved would mean her experience was nothing like that of the Angelina 1, which would make them turn out completely differently. I'm not sure how different that road would be. After all, as a child of a celebri...

That's even more ahead of the game than Ian Shelton discovering SN1987A while he was working on his graduate degree. (While he was listening to "The Wall" on his Walkman.)

I heard on the Skepticality podcast that in the state of New Mexico, Pluto has been legislated to remain a planet. Apparently Pluto was discovered by a New Mexican (New Mexicanian, New Mexacanite?, New Mexicaner?) So he's still in the big leagues there. The big question I have about Pluto is when wi...

Anyone heard what's up with Escapepod?

I know drabblecast and escapepod are a mutual admiration society. Does anyone know if Steve is ok? Long hiatus and now the web-site is unavailable for a couple days.

Worried about this pioneer in the pod-field.
