Re: Still alive?

I'm torn b/c, man, I love Uncle Norm so much so don't want to sound craggy and mean. But golly, nary a word? How long would it take to record and post a "Hey Gang, I'm off for X amount of weeks!"?? It's a serious Q, I know nothing about the inner workings of podcastdom. Norm, we miss you. Speak to us.

Re: Drabblecast 344 - Doubleheader XV

Norm has such amazing musical sense. I just spent a frantic 30 mins searching for that version of 'hey ya' and only found it b/c it was mentioned here. This forum is so great. Now the big Q is, when is Norm gonna record that puppy? Oh, I still go back and listen to him crooning about sweaters that s...

Norm + Escapepod=

I read that Norm will be partnering w/ Escapepod. Cool.

Will is be reading stories, hosting, producing? Again, cool. Should bring a nice weirdness to EP.

I've listened to this puppy about five times and it gets creepier and creepier while being consistently hilarious. Fantastic production: the music greatly enhanced the story. All those sweet sugarplums dancing while mommie turns off her kid . Great contrast. How kind of Norm to give us Xmas in August.

Confession: I stepped out during part of the story b/c I felt nothing was happening. Meh. Wonderfully produced, tho. Did I miss where the word 'husband' comes in? I listened to this whole thing as if it were two women. Wait, I didn 't listen to this whole thing so what the hell am I talking about? F...

I can well imagine how excited the guys were to read the first line of this great story. "All right!! We can finally use that cool vomit sound effect!!!" Excellent reading, as always. The story was perfect and the music was used in just the right places to put us in the mood. I felt like I was a har...

I'm gonna have to go w/ WAY over-produced lately. My Mac crashed and I lost all my downloads, beginning w/ the Ring Wasp one, so I only could listen on my iPod. Thinking I'd lose those older ones when I re-entered the download world of Drabblecast, I listened to several of those older ones. The musi...

Cat is a great reader. What makes that 'reverb' echo sound (sorry it this seems lame, I just don't know anything about recording)? Does the reader need to be in a bigger/smaller space? The walls are supposed to be cushioned, right? I always think of Norm in one of those insane padded rooms....it sou...

Can't wait to hear the Bdardle. I keep falling asleep during the story so never get to the end. Can I hear the phrase sub-quantum one more time, oh yeah.

Oh, I wish I could see the fun in this story, as so many of ya'll do. I shall search again.

Great reading and production, as always.

Ahhh, career change can be a bitch. Especially if you have to give up delicacies like, say, children served w/ bearnaise sauce.

Fantastic story. Puts Martha in a whole new light.

Haven’t heard a good Golem story since sittin’ on Daddy’s knee. Thing about his one was, if ya substitute “neighbor’s dog” for Golem, it just seems like a basic “neighbors are a pain and can be cruel” story that had fantasy elements forced into it. Did I miss something? I mean, if you’re gonna put G...

Goal for the week: to use 'flugelhorn' and 'halibut' in conversation w/ someone. Hopefully wi/ the same sentence. I know I can do it if I find the right crowd.

Great reading, as usual. That sentence w/ all the names was Olympic: wow. And Key is so so weirdly wonderful.

Help w/ finding a podcast about basketball...

I listened to a cool one about a failed b-ball player who tells of five (or six?) of his teammates over the years who have odd experiences. It's not Big Guy from EP. It's first person, male reader. One teammate was a young woman who wanted to succeed in a male-dominated league. Another was a guy who...
