How to make a living... Only $399

Ok Norm, I just have to ask- How the heck do you make a living? You obviously don't make money from DC, and it takes up a bunch of your time. You're an awesome musician, but it's easier to make money from a Nigerian scam. So what's the deal? You an investment banker or something? :-)

I would also like to throw in a vote for the vicious LEMMING! Can you imagine a pack of little suicide bomber lemmings?


Ha ha! That's awesome! Is it too late to change my vote to Lemmings?

Drabblecast Archive

A while back Norm asked if anyone wanted to put up a fan archive page, to help with redundancy, etc. I've started one at m My thought is to have a podcastable feeds for sets of 10 episodes, to make it easy for new listeners to get caught up. I have the first set up (haven't done iTunes yet, you need...

Let's get some feedback, to make sure I'm not the only one who thinks this idea is awesome.

it either makes the main character either: A. A jerk who bites the hand that feeds him, making me unsympathetic to his situation, or B. Clearly a hallucination or a dream, which makes the story loose some of it's charm. Only these choices? No, simply that those were the two choices that my mind jum...

tbaker – I’d like to hear why you think the main character was hostile, as I pictured him just incredulous or impatient. This is, of course, simply my humble view of life and death situations. If the man was in good health, his reactions were warranted. If _I_ were shipwrecked with little chance of...

Well, I admit that I'm torn. The main story is good enough if you just listen, and don't try to read too much into it. But as shown in the postings, it borders heavily on "This story has no preset meaning. Insert your own personal meaning here." If that's the case, I am utterly befuddled o...

Well, unless anyone has an objection, why don't we agree to let Norm go with the style he tinks will work best. And with at least one splat sound effect for Chiverybean. I'd like the episodes to be referenced in order 1,2, 3, and so on. Its the Greman in me. And what do you guys think about capping...

Well, as one of the 88 donors, my 2¢ is that it's all good. I don't want to saddle Norm with too stringent of criteria. I would like all the verses to somehow flow together and relate to each other, but beyond that I'm not particular. Whatever y'all decide is good. I didn't know paypal would do 2 c...

I could do Dylan without singing in Dylan style. I agree that that might distracting. Necessary gratuitousness is my middle name- any splats/face eating/cat dissolving will be done ever so tastefully. That'd be good. But of course, you're just trying to get out of reggae. Wierd Al's "BoB"...

Thanks for yet again another great drabblecast. Norm, I wonder sometimes how you have the creativity to do things like the vampire catfish, every week. Top notch. The story was very solid! I liked it a lot. If the DC can average out to a story of this level, I'm happy. So when is someone going to wr...

Dylan would be good except then we couldn't understand what he's saying. :-)

Hmm.. Reggae?

I'll dip my oar in. I love WNYC's Radio Lab. They do a clever production of in depth science topics. Hooting Yard on the Air is whacky. I canna say if I recommend it or not, but Frank Key writes some truly gripping prose on truly inane subjects. And my favorite podcast to go to sleep to is Discovery...

Most of you probably know by now that my brain is filled with information about giant squid- not web publishing.
