Drabblecast Director’s cut

Post by Mr.Shadowbxre » Mon Jul 16, 2018 1:54 am

Thank you the triumphant return of the Drabblecast Norm! We are eager to feast upon your offerings to the devoted fans. It was fun and interesting to hear the commentary in these director episodes. I’ve always enjoyed some good banter and insight on how something comes to be. Bravo sir.

Oh, hey there. I've been wondering when someone else would come back to the forum! I was also really delighted to hear the 'making of' (finally).

Oh, and Morris and Penny are codependent.

They both need marriage counseling or a divorce and counseling for their separate issues that prevent both from moving forward with their lives, together or separately.

The directors cut was good. Good to know maxi pads can cushion the old sack from a 300 pound man jumping off a ladder.

In the discussion about Charlie the Purple Giraffe, the composer Carl Stalling is mentioned. I suspect that many people have never heard of him. To most people his name is obscure but his work is anything but.

As it turns out I recently watched a YouTube video that discusses Stalling.

Here's a link to it.

That is the soundtrack of my youth (and my own internal soundtrack for life)!!! I'm considering creating a Pandora Station for Carl Stalling, just for those days in heavy traffic! It may make the drive into work more amusing!

On Jelly Park:

Listening to the director's cut episode of Jelly Park and Norm's and Aliyah's conversation about it, I think neither one realized they not only had different life experiences but were also speaking a different language. :-)

Jelly (US): Jam, probably without seeds/rind/bits.

Jelly (UK): Either of (1) same as US, but definitely without seeds/rind/bits or (2) flavoured gelatin dessert. #2 is called Gell-O in the US. #2 is what the story was referring to.

Furthering the confusion, in the US Gell-O is bought in packets of powder which you mix with hot water, where's jelly in Ireland and the UK on in hyper concentrated gelatinous form. You get it in a thin cardboard package, possibly with a cellophane wrapper inside, that is a bit like a waffle of hyper-jelly. You cut/tear it into cubes and melt it down to make the jelly you are meant to way, but you can (and everyone who grew up in Ireland (like me) or the UK has) eat it as is. It's really chewy, because it's much more concentrated gelatin, and the flavour and sweetness are accordingly dialed up to 11.

I don't think Norm realized Aliyah *wasn't* talking about something jam-like, and I don't think Aliyah realized that Norm didn't realize. :-)

P.S. Unless I'm mistaken and Aliyah intended a double entendre, the neighbour's "pot plant" is not actually a reference to growing marijuana. In IE/UK, "pot plant" means genetically "potted plant" in US English. I think Norm may have thought there was a drug angle that wasn't there. :)
