fate keeps on happening

I like the way the future happens in front of other stuff... like today and yesterday. Interests: animals, art, astronomy, audiodrama, books, brain science, buddhism, detectives, diy, film, gaming, history, humor, learning, libraries, lovecraft, music, mystery, nature, podcasts, sci fi, technology, travel & weirdos.

There were other buses; the Badger Line could be very comfortable. The Van Galder buses are as far removed from Greyhound as Harvard is from a vocational tech school.

Greyhound, on the other hand, has always been “the other hand” or the other shoe waiting to drop from infinity into the abyss.

The Ambiguities by Richard Chwedyk. Listen to it on Tales to Terrify No 103.

Two miles west south-east of the Empire of Light Shopping Center… That’s Cafe Breton. Simply follow County Road C until it breaks up and disintegrates into the dust of nothingness in time and space and look for the large floating cheese crucifix.

"Our first guest this evening is a bit of a surprise; dropped in unannounced but he was so popular the last time he was here in October that we thought we’d bring him up to the microphone once again. It’s eminent physiologist Dr Henri-Balastur Footwarmer-Association."

"Good evening."

"Dr Footwarmer-Association, what is it exactly that brings you back to our studios?"

"I’m looking for my keys."

Quiet. Through me runs the power of recent dark experience.

Mike issues a warning.

Home by George Saunders. You can listen to it on Tales To Terrify No 11. Home was a  2011 Bram Stoker Award finalist.

The name’s Justice. Jack Justice. I’m a private detective and in my experience that means one thing— trouble. It means it for me and if you happen to be careless enough to get within a hundred feet of me, chances are good that it means it for you, too.
Black Jack Justice: Home Fires via Decoder Ring Theatre

Excellent and terrifying story written by Ferrett Steinmetz. Listen to it on Escape Pod.

I don’t need a dram of fancy single malt anymore. I want a tall tumbler of booze, mind numbing hooch to dull my thoughts into a stupor and then the blissfulness of unconsciousness.
The Winter Fire by David Cummings. Read by David on the Dec 25 2012 episode of the NoSleep podcast. He really gets Christmas.

Cadet Stallwark: I learned that the only way to fight against the system is to be a part of it.

Captain Peeples: Yes, a philosophic outlook, cadet.

Cadet Stallwark: Yeah, if you go inside… that’s where it’s vulnerable— and gut it from there!

Tales of the United Solar Systems Alliance, “New Frontier” from the Thrilling Adventure Hour

Vodka in a slice is everything nice. All you need is a dame.

Catchy slogan of one of QICE’s sponsors, Pizza Booze. From QICE: Radio North featured on Icebox Radio Theater.

Evil, there is nowhere you can hide. There is nowhere you can cower. For I promise until my last breath is taken, I will give every ounce of my being to root you out and squash you like a grape on the supermarket floor of life or I’m not Kid Cumulonimbus, sidekick to the mighty Thundercrester!

Orville demonstrates a heroic monologue from Saturday Morning Theatre: Adventures of the Thunder Crester #103.

"Kid Cumulonimbus" is such an excellent superhero sidekick name!

Against my better judgment, I traveled half the world to be here today. I have battled automatons, outwitted supernatural beasties and suffered the company of Americans to see you!

Little Dickie. Tales of the Extraordinary: A Song of Vice & Ire

Mayor White: This is a matter of intergalactical security. My secretary has gone missing.

Dick Dynamo: Petunia?! That blonde bombshell. She had legs like a sultry space giraffe.

Mayor White: Mmmmm… space giraffes..

Dick Dynamo, the 5th Dimensional Man. Episode 1: The Organic Nightmare

The name is Dick Dynamo, the 5th Dimensional Man. I’m a cosmic troubleshooter. I hunt down trouble and I shoot it. In the face. It was a hot muggy Wednesday afternoon. The kind you want to spend inside the office making love to a….. fine Venusian bourbon straight from Neptune.

There’s a lot more to this caper than uncomfortable fantasy dresses made of lead crystal and complicated accessory decisions.

Jack Hardcastle in Hardboiled. Performed by the Texas Radio Theatre via The Sonic Society.

Tonight’s episode, Private Dick in a Box.

For the moment I was out of breath and out of sight, in the parking lot hiding under a car, waiting for the cops to give up looking for me. Pretty standard.

Sometimes it seems like the alphabet city police are only interested in maintaining law and order. Typical. In pursuit of the facts though, sometimes, you have to kick a waiter in the head and steal his clothes.
