Saturday, June 1st, 2013
It was quite by accident I discovered this incredible invasion of Earth by lifeforms from another planet. As yet, I haven’t done anything about it; I can’t think of anything to do. I wrote to the Government, and they sent back a pamphlet on the repair and maintenance of frame houses. Anyhow, the whole thing is known; I’m not the first to discover it. Maybe it’s even under control…

Ha! This story aligns so perfectly with Norm's sense of humor, it's hard to believe that he didn't write it. I enjoyed it, and I'm glad to have the b-sides to play pure fluff like this and not get tons of criticism.

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

I can appreciate an extended riff on muddied anatomical metaphors... My ears and typing-fingers burned. ;)

I had trouble listening to this, though. Fell asleep twice while hearing it and didn't dare play it and drive. I think Norm's "Acting" voice was more pronounced. It was all deep tones and steady, measured cadence. I know Norm can do a more natural voice and a more "preacher-like" delivery.

Still, it's fun to hear/read a jag by like-minded farceurs, and I don't remember reading this Dick story before.



Fun idea: Bedtime audio recordings for children -- about unholy, non-Euclidean nightmares... But told in soothing, steady tones.
