Re: Drabblecast 219 - The Big Splash

Down the line, an entry like 'best of drabblecast zombies' or 'top 10 weirdest drabblecasts.' DiaboloicalPlots is already generating similar content, and they're great, and have a lot that we could benchmark from. That sort of content is good for enriching the community, getting more of our charact...

Re: The Drabblecast Art Reclamation Project

For anyone who's interested, I've posted a "making of" article about the three illustrations I've contributed so far. I laid out how I did each one step by step. :)

Danke! To speed up the process, I just cleared my browsing history and that did the trick.

I like the new site. Direct downloads, a design pleasant to the eye. Very nice. :)

Re: The Drabblecast Art Reclamation Project

And the new (http://www.drabblecast.org) site looks great, too. 8) I went to check out the new site, but I must be typing it in wrong. I tried www.drabblecast.org and it redirected to the old web.me site. I tried www.thedrabblecast.com and it brings up this forum. Can someone point me to what I'm d...

Re: The Drabblecast Art Reclamation Project

Can't wait to turn the site on. We're so damnably close! Many of these new covers are just fantastic. The range of styles is thrilling. And hey, if you're unfortunate enough to enjoy my work, I've got double digit contributions - monsters and grimaces abound! When you do you expect the site to go l...

For me, I find it harder to remember specific Trifecta plots after a long period of time because they're so brief. I don't know about anyone else. :P

Re: Drabblecast 218 - Orange

Hm. Definitely some interesting imagery in this one, which makes it notable. It came off as pretty lecturey though, especially so soon after the zombie actuary one. So, I gather, since the world described was exactly like ours, that the orange is metaphorical, that we are not actually living on an o...

Re: Drabblecast 217 - Followed

They made some mention of not wanting to upset Amnesty International, (as well as, presumably, the ACLU and the NAADP.) I think this is the reason, yeah, for PR. I suspect that you wouldn't be able to get out of your corpse plague so easily. If I were designing an undead actuarial system, I would b...

Thanks for the recommend! I think I've only read about half a dozen Lovecraft stories, and that isn't one of them. :)

Re: Drabblecast 217 - Followed

Well the president certainly was winning the corpse count race. One might suggest that the sweatshop owner might have been a better choice but the dead don't seem to grasp the concept of moral relativism. Yeah, that was the thing I really wondered about this. How does a corpse pick just one person?...

Re: Drabblecast 217 - Followed

Was it at any point explicitly stated in the story that the corpses were drawn solely to the overprivileged/polluters/bad guys? It seemed to be implied, by the tens of thousands corpses surrounding the President, and by a line in the story about the corpses somehow finding masters through some gran...

Re: Drabblecast 217 - Followed

I was really digging the story when it began, of the world where random corpses follow people around. And it was an interesting premise, especially when I realized after the line about "actuarial balance" that this was all apparently meant to show people the effect they're having in the world. It to...

Re: Drabblecast 216 - The Book of Eternity

Look at the suffering people put themselves through who only have to put up with a few years of meaninglessness. I mean, have you seen the Kardashians? Unfortunately, I've seen a few moments here and there, coinciding with exclamations of "Oh my God, where's the remote? Where's the remote? Dammit, ...

No difference between this and "The Meaning of Life is that there is no meaning of life other than to live? Eternal meaninglessness would probably make you wish for the ability to suffer being eaten by Satan. Now that's something original! I can see the infomercial now! "Is eternal life getting... ...

That sounds like my dogs. Whenever someone's crying they're always trying to lick the face. My wife thinks they're showing empathy, but I think they just yearn for the salty flavor of despair.

Aha! Found it. It was "Immortal Sin" by Jennifer Pelland. I just had to search the Escape Artists forums for the keyword "confession":
