Re: Drabblecast 142- The Golden Age of Fire Escapes Part I

WOW. what a production! I looked at my MP3 player and was like 40 MINUTES, HOLY CRAP! That's like twice as long as the average Drabblecast! But this thing was packed with so much hilarity. I love that innocent, nostalgic Schlitz malt liquor commercial. They so had no idea that over 50 years later th...

Re: Drabblecast 141- On the Destruction of Copenhagen

Listened to the CC first episode. Sounds promising! I'm looking forward to the next. As for this week's story, I dunno. Maybe it's just really hard to live up to a story title that awesome. :-) It was poignant, interesting, well written and well read. I dunno, maybe I'm just in a malaise myself? Tho...

Re: Drabblecast 140- Trifecta X

I'm more inclined to say Meh, Great Awesome. Alasdair really sold the first piece and it was a fun opener. I think that's all it was intended to be. The second story was just SO Frank Key (who I discovered through Drabblecast and have loved since.) Those unfortunates who didn't enjoy this story and ...

Re: Drabblecast 139- Let Us Now Praise Awesome Dinosaurs

The amount of personality in those dinosaurs was ridiculous. People all over the world should be forced to listen to this one. They should be rounded up in stadiums and forced to listen to this and then released without any explanation. that would shake things up.... Nigel I've been hovering the fo...

Re: Favorite Normisms

That one's good. There's a ton. The fake news in episode 55 was one of the wittiest I remember, about the measures taken to keep bums from public benches, including giant metal spikes installed on benches, which just ended up "trapping the less elastic hobos that wedged themselves between the spikes...

Re: Drabblecast 129- Annabelle's Alphabet by Tim Pratt

That was really just awesome. Such a good story and done so well. I know competition will be stiff with all the amazing stuff Drabblecast has been pumping out, but I can see this story being in the top 5 for People's Choice Award next year. I was very impressed with the mood-spacing between the lett...

Yah, Tweedy has supplied us with some great stuff in the past. I hunt the net and send inquiries when I find a clear owner. 100% of them have said sure.
Would love to take a look at yours!

Anywho, on to the question. In the drabble Navy Wife, I don't understand the very last line. Why did the Chaplain come to her door on Monday? It's a cyclic story; could keep repeating forever almost from any day. Maybe there was a ghost writing her that didn't know it was dead, maybe he wasn't dead...

I still think mine is the worst, a giant bat under the ceiling fan every night. I loved the T-rex twist. Cretaceous ghosts was a fun little story, really liked it. #2 was weird, I think I got it. The baby is born a freak, with a glass bowl over her head, and the family ends up living in a fishbowl t...

That was great! I loved all of the stories, the sandwich shop being my favorite. I'm a softy for animals so this made me tear up a bit. I was nervous throughout most of the fishermen story, pretty convinced that the father was using the boy as bait for a giant squid or shark or something. Was pleasa...

I'm not even sure what I voted for in the poll! :-) It looked most like my expression, so I guess that's good. I agree with Mr. Tweedy that this is only loosely "erotica" (not that I know what fits the bill there *cough cough*). It started off pretty sexy but then it leveled out. I think Mr. Tweedy ...

Aaaaaaand Norm has a hilarious Bill Cosby impression... why am I not surprised? :lol: I loved this story, mushiness and romance have been long overdue on the Drabblecast. Cool ideas, as far as the paradoxes and changing futures, which ended up not getting in the way of the real meat of the story. Th...

Meh, this one didn't do much for me. In fairness, I had just listened to Clown Eggs though, and then the rap hit, which was awesome, so it was a tough act to follow. It had moments, I like Cara Mia, Calamari, and I agree that the buildup to the last line was funny. I appreciated Handel's Water music...

I didn't find it disturbing really, but sooo weird and so hilarious! I had a huge grin on my face the whole time. I think Saki's head would be spinning had he heard this.

I actually just listened to that one. Awesome! And yes there was music, but maybe less than usual. I for one really appreciate the extent to which Norm brings stories to life with music and occasional effects. I'd notice and miss them if they were gone...

Riveting! I love post-apocalypse stories, putting Lord of the Flies in that context made for awesome adventure. Maybe a little too much sneaking around in dark shops in the first half, lagged a bit as a result, but then really took off in the second half. Reminded me of Mel Gibson's Apocalypto, but ...
