Finial Thoughts

Wow, that is so strange. What is that, root beer? Yes, definitely, it is root beer of all things. Who would do that, I mean why. And root beer of all things. I could see a mild sweet flavor to help it go down but root beer. Jeez, this is so stupid; I have one minute left in this life I am spending i...

Mike never tired of the old we're going to crash joke. Look in what's left of the cockpit and see the smile on his dead face.

It's not the crash landing, violent natives, or even the slow suffocation of the alien atmosphere I mind. It's just you.

Irreplacable

I am Captain of this ship. All manual operations of this spaceship are under my control. They say spaceships are all computer controlled, but computers can’t do everything. They still need me here at the controls. No robot, computer, or AI can work this machine; no it takes the skilled hand of a hum...

Her last scream rang out like the lid of the silver platter she'd been placed upon silenced by the monster's single gulp.

Re: Drabblecast 146- Teddy Bears and Tea Parties

Did anybody else find the teddy bears the easiest characters to relate with in this strange tale?

Woo-Hoo! I win 5 bucks. Whoever is paying up can just donate it to the Drabblecast to ensure we get more fecal matter and anal probing stories in the future. Maybe if we get enough pay outs for this bet Norm will write us a Bardle to celebrate. The story was different in a good way. The end was a li...

This is why I love this podcast, I never would have guessed Drabble would be running a floktale. It was a bit cookie cutter, which I guess is a requirement for a folktale, but it was a good story. As much as Drabblecast keeps you guessing, I will still bet 5 bucks that the next story has some kind o...

I think the story was just that forgetable. Not bad enough to warrant a flaming, not good enough to earn praise and admiration. To me it was like the salad before a steak, but the steak never arrived. No really meat to it.

Story was OK, not my cup of tea, but well written. But the Drabble News was great. Kind of like Drabblecast does a ripped from the headlines version of House! :D

There are a lot of deaths in these 100 word drabbles!

The main story did nothing for me, just pasted the time. The production and voice acting were good. I think this is another example a of diolage driven story that fails the show don't tell rule.

That is so like people, who will tell themselves any lie to maintain a sense of normalcy.
Is this a paraphrase of or an expansion upon The Wizards First Rule?

Thanks to all for the comments on the drabble. Norm made this a much better story then the writing did, great work as always Norm. I really did see a Grim Reaper walk out of the bowling alley one day and head next door to the skating rink. It was probably for some party and the bowling alley has a b...

I liked the EP story better. The twist was just as obvious, in fact in the EP story the main character even ponders that it is his bone, but the author did a great job of twisting the twist around. The DC story just gave you the twist you saw coming from jump street.

nomination suggestion

I would like to nominate Drabblecast 15- Roanax by some A-hole, no no just kidding :D , Mr. Norm Sherman. Modesty (ha) or s"ome employees not eligable" clause may keep Norm from winning, but it is my favorite story thus far.

Noirm x infinity

The song at the end reminded me of the Pirates of the Caribbean 3 where there are hundreds of Jacks on the boat. But it was hundred of Norms singing the Jelly song. It was a truly scary thought. This was the best podcast I ever heard. Great original music, lyrics, story, and voice work. If there was...

Thanks

I just wanted to thank the author and Norm for the great story and production, both this one and The One that Got Away. I love the unusual styles both of these had. I also like to hear from the authors in the comments on these podcast sites. Thanks again.
