No love for this episode?
I just listened and it was 3 nicely entertaining, and sometimes funny, stories. Well worth a play or two.

Also, one of the authors might have a bagpipe fetish...

Ummm... I'll let you know when I hear it. Now that I think of it, I've had nothing at all coming into my iTunes inbox for a couple of days. I'll have to make sure nothing's happened to the settings on my feed. :)

Oops! My mistake! Didn't read the whole thread title or date of 1st post.

Still, turns out half my iTunes feeds HAD stopped updating for no good reason, so at least some good came of it.

I'll go & refresh my memory now, and maybe dye my hair blonde. Looks like it would suit me :)

That aint no way to treat a musical instrument!

I was reminded of a piper who used to stand on Princes Street in Edinburgh, back in my Uni days, and play The Sky Boat.

OVER AND OVER AND OVER!

What wouldn't I have given for a Kraken to rise up from The Firth and smash his pipes to matchwood!

The stories all made me smile though. I wonder if there might be a market for Octopus Erotica..?

Ah, you've yet to discover the joys of tentacle manga. Bwahahahah!

Yes, I've long suspected that bagpipes are played only as an "accepted" way to greatly annoy people and traumatize wildlife. In the story, the delivery of that instrument should have been seen as an act of war. :twisted:

Good episode. But my favorite was Frank Key, of course.
You're my quasi-ichthian angel, you're my half-amphibian queen...

The Dribblecast, we don't care if you sound like an idiot.

I really enjoyed all three stories. The imagery from Earth Music will probably stay with me until my dying day.
