Re: Juzt Mizundrstood

Your sticks and stones may break my bones And your flamethrowers may burn me But only direct headshots Ultimately concern me Gotta be the best phrase in the song. Norm, you worked in so many bad puns and turns of phrases into that song, you deserve to be shot or praised, I'm not sure which. The son...

Bbardle = Awesome Story = Eh? Guy who my or may not be crazy makes and obsesses over sculptures that may or may not be alive. Guy's friend, concerned for Guy's health, burns sculptures. The end. The end? However, the story is quite fun if taken as non-fiction about the real Norm Sherman and Steve E...

So Norm, are we going to start seeing intros about how your three testicles affected your life, and lives of people around you? How it's driven some people away, and brought some closer? :D

Tom

P.S. I just realized how ironic that your name is Norm. Like, short for Normal.

I guess I'm kinda surprised by all this talk about the zombies. Isn't the tension of this story based upon not being able to ignore a kid's desires? I mean, that's the only way adults survive children, being able to say "no" and/or have some ability to control the undeveloped mind. While the child-l...

Podcasting, like many, many things in life, can be a truly thankless job. I have gotten a lot of enjoyment from EP, and his stories have brought many a smile to my face. But he's gone in one direction, I've gone in another. Easy 'nuff. The more this medium grows, the more chance there is to find com...

Well, since we're now off-topic (anyone feel free to get back ON). I think a big difference between Norm intros and Steve intros is that Norm is the host of the Drabblecast while Steve is Escape Pod's editor . Norm's humor and performance are a huge part of what makes DC DC. We listen to hear Norm ...

Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is a hell of a story comment. Tweedy's right up there with the best of the Steve Eley intro's. I have to joke about Giant Water Bugs to fill time because I'll never come up with insights like that. *Off subject!!!!* Unfortunately, I've gotten really tired of Mr. Eley...

Haaa haa ha! Now that is a Drabblecast! Well written, clever, and kept twisting on me every time I thought I knew what was next.

And the communal reaction is almost as good as the story itself!

Who found/choose this story?

New CD?

First off- Congratulations Norm for pronouncing "Steradian" correctly! Not many people can do that. Next business I start will be called "Tom Industries" or somesuch. While it seemed awfully clever at the time to name the company based upon a unit of measure used in optics... But on to the main note...

Story later- Wow Norm, you amaze me. Pulling that song together in under a week? Best line - Build another Burger King, Have it Your Way Too funny! Awesome song. I really like the Bardle.

I came away from the story feeling that if I was from the same background as the author, with the same education and upbringing, the story would be profound.

I suspect that I'm one of the pigs, and therefore, being the butt of the story, don't get it.

Abject depression does not a good story make. If I was meant to emotionally connect with these characters, then I needed a lot more information. If this was meant to be a story about the struggles of the human condition, I'll pass. Life is hard enough without listening to a fictional unresolvable si...

After having a really bad day, I saw this new drabblecast and had a listen. What a joy!

I'm not sure why, but somehow it restored my faith in humanity, and brought a smile to my face.

Thanks for bringing a little more perspective to this world.
