Thanks for letting us know! As they've found on another podcast which shall remain nameless, listeners can cope with a week or two off if they know about it.

Have a good break.

Have a great vacation, DC editors!
I'll be there in 5 minutes. If not, read this again.

I'm drowning my sorrows in a sea of March Madness. The windex man, cleaning the glass, baby! Hear you next week.

Everyone sucking on the DC teat (okay, you can call it subscribing to a feed) seems to placidly assume that the DC Three are benecifent, and will return in a couple of days. But there's a librarian somewhere still waiting for Jesus to return the book on How to Make a Last Supper.
Me, I'm wondering what will become of this place if Kendall, Luke, and Norm just took off with our donations and are out there looking to party hearty with braver ducky, zZzacha, and Norma, leaving the rest of us standing on the side of the Grand Canyon like little Joe Dirts, waiting in our torn and tattered dresses, with wilted brown vegetation attached to our wrists, for our prom dates to return from the bathroom.

It would be too like them to make that picture of us a kind of existential final DC episode. The strange listeners who became a strange story by the strangest possible of nonauthorship.

Provide your own cat splat.

OMG, I just realized... now we can be copied and distributed but not sold or changed!


...or not. Apparently once they realized I was on to them, professor Harry Seldon had arranged for an apparition episode to keep the masses content. But they haven't figured on The Mule.

Gonna take that bye week this week actually folks. Norm needs a bit of R & R & QTSFH & 36. Plus I'm out of town.
But Trifecta VII coming soon, and another Bbardle, so don't get your tentacles in a wad.

I reckon Norm's got a girlfriend. Either that or he's finally getting on to that hostile takeover of Escape Pod he's dreamed about for so long.

Actually cammo, as nice as both of those things might be, I'm really just observing Holy Week.

....

....


... and, uh, I forgot to bring my microphone to South Carolina.

I refuse to read you folks a story with shanty-ass equipment.

I must admit, the last few episodes, Norm has sounded a lot less cynical and there seems to be a "bounce" in his voice. I must agree with cammo, I think Norm has a lady friend that the other editors aren't paying for.

I've noticed that, but I've also noticed he sounds a bit more tired than usual. In fact, it all coincides with the appearance of Norma Sherman on the boards.

Isn't that the age old story? Girl stalks boy, boy falls for girl, girl takes boy on trip to South Carolina where there is a mysterious accident involving boy, girl, an axe, an iguana and the cast of Criminal Minds.

Ah, young love. Good luck to all of you in your futures, regardless of how many pieces are involved.

On the mic thing Norm, you could use whatever you used on those early editions of the Drabblecast and call it DCRetro. Who knows, it might be just the thing to convince Norma to loosen those cable ties.

So, chances are there won't be a DC this week. It's no vacation, it just means we needed time for next week--when you'll be slammed with 3 NS/DC nuggets. Hope you're subscribed to Escapepod mofo's.

Aughhh! I thought bunnies were vegetarians. But I thought it with a part of my brain that has been nibbled by a bunny, so how do I know?

I think this bunneh is zombienized by DC. Blame the DC and be _very_ glad that they have no opportunity to further influence us this week! There wouldn't be any brains left, if it were up to the Drabblecast.

Ah, Life kicked my ass this week worse than Predator kicked batman's. Gotta take another bye week-- in order to get the Bbardle ready for next week's episode! Oh, and also a Bsides episode (for real this time!)
