No. We've got serif, sans serif and script fonts. Never heard of an oli font before... The job basically sucks. It pays crap, is über boring and there a lot of cranky ladies who think I'm either ignorant or oh-so-cute due to my being the same age as their children. I mostly just cram text into littl...

I liked them in descending order. I thought Witness was very clever, and perfectly performed. The perspective a truly amoral and disinterested protagonist was fresh, and its pedantic fretting over the Mistress's carpet while failing to realize the Mistress was being murdered was darkly comical. I al...

Nothing about this story really stuck me until the last paragraph. Aside from the nursing home being on the moon, the story was extremely, if sadly, banal up to that point. But then the end–The man is unhappy that his father has found his new home fulfilling and enjoyable. That was a poignant twist,...

Guilt is to the spirit like pain is to the body: It's designed as indicator of when you've done something a person isn't meant to do. Bend a finger in an unnatural way and PAIN! Bend the heart in a way it isn't meant to bend and GUILT! Like with pain, you've got normal, healthy guilt, which is the g...

It's a saying I've heard. Something like "If a bear is chasing you, you don't have to outrun the bear. You only have to outrun your camping buddies." The implication being that the bear will eat only the slowest camper, leaving the rest safe. Zombies=bear. I think the moral is that it's okay to let ...

A coworker said I sounded like "a mental patient in his room" while listening to the intro and outro. Ouch. :cry: This could be the best Drabblecast ever! The production was even better than normal, the story was genuinely suspenseful, and the jokes were enough to make you laugh like a mental patien...

I think Strawman was joking. At least, I don't see anything Christian there. I guess, if you really wanted to stretch, you could say it's like Christians swapping guilt with Jesus, except Jesus hasn't got any guilt, so it's only a one-way transfer. If you wanted to stretch. I like the joke angle. My...

I either really like it or I don't get it at all.

If the short guy was just trying to get rid of his dead monkey by unloading it on a sucker, then that's pretty funny!

If there was something mystical going on, then I'm confused...

That could be.

It's plausible that someone would have that attitude.

Idea and execution were both very cool, as was Norm's (as usual) excellent reading. I was surprised by the end, despite the title and picture. I has assumed the suit was just a symbol. That it itself was the corrupting, diabolical entity had not occurred to me. I really liked the update on the sell-...
