Re: The Problem with Time Travel

(Seriously: have you ever read a time-travel story that takes into account the fact that the Earth turns and moves around the sun? Go one hour either way, and earth is 66,600 miles away....) Why, yes. A stunningly brilliant twabble :D , on this very theme, was posted here . Also, the whole solar sy...

The Problem with Time Travel

Drifting, Alan realized where all the probes had gone. He had traveled in time. Meanwhile, Earth had traveled in space.

I liked this one, and not just because it fit the ancient Near Eastern theme so well. The quantum machine vs. ancient demon battle was a bit of a stretch for me, but I deeply enjoyed the alternate explanation behind Babel, even if I kept waiting to see how new languages would be introduced, as in th...

Babylon Battle of the Bands - Lyrics

Back in the day, a long time ago Before Alex the Great made himself CEO And bought up the world and all of it's rock and roll And then watered it down, pre-packaged and sold it Homogenized, monopolized, commercially controlled it— I remember a time when rock and roll wasn't always So plebian, so pac...

It's an interesting idea, although I think that you're going to find it more useful to have people in the same room. An ENORMOUS part of acting is reacting, even if it's just voices.

Wow. Even as an evangelical, I find that a bit much.

Drabble News Into Sound

I love the Drabblecast. But I wince whenever Drabble News is announced — not because of the news content itself, but because of the loud CH-CH-CH-CHEK DIS. It's just such an out-of-place grating sound that I actually take my headphones off when I hear it coming. On the other hand, I love the little ...

OK, tongue-biters aside... yikes...

This one worked for me. It's one of those plot concepts where you really do want to ask the author, "Where do you get your ideas?" It's a combination I'd have never come up with, and that alone tickled me. Deceptively simple, comic, and creative.

The first story was a bit too dramatic for my tastes; the second made me smile, probably because I've faced that blank sheet of paper and a deadline so many times, but lacked the imagination and confidence to produce something quite so wonderfully awful. Bravo.

Question: I'm messing with mics and EQ a little- did anyone think "too loud or too soft" in regards to the music or narration? Did S's sizzle a bit too much in the narration? Depending on if your in a car, with ipod/headphones, at laptop or at a desktop there can be a big difference in the balance ...

Beautiful, haunting, fascinating. All though both met the same end, one wonders at the aims and purposes of each character—whether the ship's self-sacrifice on the altar of knowledge, or the man's determination to dictate the last of his days on his own terms—made any difference in the light of eter...
