 Hey kids, took my iTunes awhile to snag this one out of the aether, but I finally got a chance to listen to The Drabblecast’s newest episode, #219 The Big Splash. Great episode all around, but then again what else would you expect from good ol’ Norm, host of The Drabblecast. This week we got a little extra treat as Norm presented an excellent abridged reading from The Drabblecast’s sponsor J.R. Hamantaschen’s book “You Shall Never Know Security”
A seriously creepy book that everyone should buy, borrow, and beg to read it. Skipping the drabble this week, Norm dove right in to the feature story.

The Big Splash, writen by George R. Galuschak, was a story that I had to listen to three times just to figure out if I simply liked it for the  “space-lord spliffs”, or if the emotional tug from recently losing a family dog to illness. Something that I didn’t much care for was the sex scene that manifested out of thin air. Emotion was a strong thing in this story and I wondered if there was a reason the author seemed to leave a lot of that emotion out of the two kids hooking up. I wasn’t sure if the author was trying to get across that as we progress into the future with our social networks, that maybe we will lose our sense of emotion with each other. Going to have to mull this one over and maybe giver her another listen, I can never get enough.

Closing up the episode was the announcement of this weeks twit fic winner~ Sgt. Crispy~ “Please, oh please, make the barking stop. I’ve tried everything. Playing with it, feeding it, petting it, drowning it.” Nice
