i wasn't expecting this one to get negative feedback. i thought it was right up dc's alley; very black-and-white-animals-esque. the title, content, tone, all of it. it didn't present the killer ducks as a surprise or a twist really, which turned out great because in DC you're conditioned to expect t...

an interesting question would be- if zombies are granted suffrage, and cyborgs denied it... what about zomborgs (the undead reanimated through cybertronics)? i've actually had some sketches about these cross-breed curiosities in the works for a while now. i'll post something when completed.

i mentioned a series of 'flash fiction' horror stories in a post a while ago about Masters of Horror. one of them- "Homecoming" was actually about zombies voting. fallen vet soldiers reanimated on memorial day, and there was havoc world wide- people were freaking out and shooting them, and it isnt t...

the ending didn't ruin the story for me per-se, cause i still really liked it as a whole, it was just disappointing cause there were so many really great resolutions it could have had that would have fit better. i think i recant my statement at this point, after seeing the amount and depth of discu...

if this isn't the most drabble-newsworthy post i've ever seen, i don't know what it is i've been seeing. the idea of a toothpick/earwax pick combo utensil qualifies it alone, but as an ancient golden artifact, valued at over $100,000?? cmon. i can just hear the intense zoom-in sound effect with norm...

my only other complaint was an odd overuse of the word "takionic." I believe you mean "tachyonic." :P blast, this is not the first time i've been called out on my spelling in these forums. :oops: for all the perks of podcasts and audiobooks, one edge printed stories will always have is the ability ...

i just took a copyright law class- finished a couple weeks ago. but you may want to wait till grades come out to decide if you want to listen to anything i say. the song would pass as a parody of the references involved but my understanding is using actual clips would technically be an infringement-...

like most here, i mirror aynsavoy's comment. i picked up on the thick fo-douglas-adamsyness of it from the start which put a bad taste in my mouth, but then it got extremely creative with the particular adventures of bleerbo- i mean there were some really fantastic ideas in there; and i began to rea...

Okay, this needs to become one of those "viral" things that everyone on the whole internet ends up listening to. i was thinkin this too while listening, but it occured to me that there's no such thing as "viral songs" on the interwebz. they always have an animation to go along with it, no matter ho...

really nailed the generic musical formula for this genre: the simple chord progressions, solos, and especially the whiney, pseudo-british, post-greenday accent. great stuff.

I don’t know, I sort of liked this one. I feel like I always say that- maybe I’m just easy to please. I liked the lack of 'ending' ending, because I thought it was set up to have a pretty predictable 'they get back late, they're drunk, skeptical nay-saying friend talking about destroying the sculptu...

Norm is short for Norman. and "Norman Sherman" is pretty much the most ridiculous, absurdly stupid name i've ever heard. which makes it suit him as much as the norm al irony. Gnarls Barkley is close though, because silent G's are just downright silly. as far as the norm sherman vs. steve eley intros...

man, what's wrong with you people?? this story was awesome. i loved it. no, stephen king has never combined superpowers and zombies. and i dont know about the logical flaws. first, it's a zombie piece so willful suspension of disbelief takes over to an extent. even still, it doesn't get too in depth...

ya know, the first thing i asked myself was 'two-faced indian baby? i wonder if they're going to think this one's a diety too.." and sure enough. they really toss the dietizations around over there. personally i think shredni vashtar is the most convincing of them.
