Drabble News Into Sound

Post by Aquarello » Thu Nov 20, 2008 5:42 pm

I love the Drabblecast. But I wince whenever Drabble News is announced — not because of the news content itself, but because of the loud CH-CH-CH-CHEK DIS. It's just such an out-of-place grating sound that I actually take my headphones off when I hear it coming.

On the other hand, I love the little drumroll and "drabble!" ...it makes me smile everytime I hear it.

Pretty strange that the longest topic thread in the forum is about Tweedy's logo. Wouldn't the Drabble News intro soundbite be as worthy of treatment as the logo?

I turn my headphones up when that comes on. Keep it!

Man, I've been hearing it for so long, it's hard to be objective.

It doesn't grate on me, but if I pull myself to an newcomers perspective, it isn't as refined as the rest of the stuff. Norm is usually pretty subtle (Death match episodes excluded), this isn't. I could see how it would be jarring.

The Dribblecast, we don't care if you sound like an idiot.
