I can dig it. Reminds me of the retro cover I'm crafting for episode 50.

Is that Rob Zombie in the top half?

Re: Drabblecast 269 - Bright Lights

Yeah, not helping us. The story plot actually mirrors the actions of a virus more than the Borg. Convert part of the host into clones of yourself, not assimilate the host's good parts. Then, once you've replicated enough, send massive quantities of spores out to infect others. You may make slight c...

Any thoughts on why he offered to sacrifice himself at the end? I'm with ASID: tired/done. I think the alien's 'purpose' was to arrive on earth and prepare us for survival. His purpose was fulfilled. For whatever reason (too old?) he wasn't making the next journey, so to be of further use he was of...

Re: Drabblecast 269 - Bright Lights

Yeah, it is kinda like an awkward LGBT product placement. But beyond pointlessness, it raises the rather relevant question: if you are specifically aiming to populate the universe, sending LGBT's would be the ultimately stupid way to do it. It was odd to me, initially. But I took the 'boy-girl' thi...

Re: Norm's Big News

But I'm concerned. EP has a history of chewing through people. Might this be the start of some hideous infliction of unproductive insanity upon Mr. Sherman? (As opposed to the productive-enough-to-podcast brand of insanity) It's a fair point. I would say though that few have been closer to the sour...

Escape Pod is a giant in the audio genre fiction landscape, and comes highly recommended to anyone who has yet to listen to one of its hundreds of offerings. Norm ha...

Ha. Didn't know if we were dealing with another Caroline. Clearly the styles are reminiscent. Now to work out a left hand and a right hand drawing technique, and really trick us.
