Tentacle Man: Bardle-like

My son, a freshman at MSU, posted this yesterday. Given our collective appreciation for all things tentacled, I thought some on the DC might enjoy it.

Re: Drabblecast 158- Dr. Diablo Goes Through the Motions

I was blown away by the creativity of the Drabble News. How many Norms are there? One guy can't do all that. Oh, and by the way, I am going to get Norm or Sue for the nose picking reference. But hey, I'm an infectious disease doctor--you gotta drum up business somehow.

Temporal Displacement sounded like a killer app. Ironical, I mused, throwing my worthless iPhone in the raptor’s maw.

Re: Drabblecast 109 - Babel Probe by David Levine

This is one of the coolest time travel stories I've read recently. I kept waiting for it to get hokey, and instead I got totally drawn in to the perspective of a hyperintelligent mote of dust. Babylon Battle of the Bands was the thing that finally dragged me to this website. I just had to get the m...

Moishe Yeshevitz promoted to Head Mohel position at Hebrew National Weiner Dog Division; transferred from Briskets.
Weiner Dogs are always funny, even in horror. Would it be possible to write a horror story with Weiner Dogs?

I love the sub-genre idea!

Re: Drabblecast 131- Storm Comes A' Callin’ by Jeremiah Tolbert

This is one of my favorite Drabblecasts so far. The story was good, but the songs and the production took it over the top. "That old Ohio River. . ."

Re: Announcing the Weekly Tw(itter)-(Dr)abble Contest!

A common ancestor? Darwin, you poor fool. This ancestor was beautifully complex, and the downward spiral inevitable. That's actually what I think happened... It's, like, Biblical. Also reminds me of the story "Devolution" by Edmond Hamilton. Wise, powerful single-celled beings come to Earth to chec...

We are all doomed. The zombies are going to win unless we get really good at rapid decapitation. Maybe all those days swinging a scythe on the farm were not a waste after all.

Phenomenal episode, perhaps my favorite. Norm, the song was out of the park.
