Sound Destruction: SAR DRONED ON

Monday, September 26, 2005


I first came across Waking Ambrose through Blog Explosion. It kept popping up like kernels in a microwave. After awhile, I got so tired of waiting the 30 seconds for the next blog that I decided to actually check it out. I did and found I really liked it. Our friend Doug is arguably one of the smartest people I virtually know, taking a word from Ambrose Bierce's Devil's Dictionary and giving it a twist of his own on a daily basis. I've dubbed it my intellectual playground, and Doug's growing number of regular commenters tells me I'm not alone in this assessment. As commenters, we have fun trying our hand at his word of the day and chatting amongst ourselves while Doug, the quintessential host, never neglects to acknowledge our efforts and even delegates a word, allowing one of us to be the special guest star each Wednesday.

Not too long ago, Doug introduced an addendum to Waking Ambrose. An interactive audio blog called Doug Drones On. On Saturday mornings, Doug treats us to stories of his adventurous life through his so-called drone. He encourages interactive participation from his readers, or in this case listeners, as well. So, I mustered up the courage and I gave it a shot (anyone interested can hear my submission to Doug's audio blog here).

Though I know most of you already are familiar with these sites, I encourage the balance of you to treat yourself by visiting my intellectual playgrounds. Dibs on the seesaw!

Aw, thanks, Sar! By the way, you may want to try the swings, I think the see-saw is short a bolt.

Oh, to the rest of you all, whether or not you want to bother my sites you should listen to Sar's story. Very funny, well told and what a voice. I hope you're ugly.

Thanks, Doug. But your challenging cynicism will not get me to post my picture. Nice try though! ;)

Praise from the Pez! Thanks Ap3 & Dddragon. I suppose it would be inappropriate to refer to you both as playmates. *wink, wink* :)

Yep! Doug's the best! You did a very nice job as well. Something tells me you're not ugly.

First in line for the slide.

Sar.... not at all what I guessed you'd sound like. Not even remotely close.

You do sound like you're from Jersey, but you also sound, like.... delicate. An intriguing mix.

Actonbell - My days would certainly be less interesting without Doug. It was awfully nice of him to bring us all together. (Thanks again Doug!)

TLP - Thanks. :) And you know, Nedhead and Ariader both know whether I'm ugly or not and neither commented. And Strider for that matter. I'm not sure how to take that.

Maine - Not the hacking hag you expected, huh?

Mike - Thanks. Aren't all your smoke breaks this interesting?

no, not usually that interesting.
ours usually wind up being reduced to fart jokes and talking about all the hot girls in the office who most certainly are all hot for us.
because we are so cool.. :)

I'm still listening to it.

You have a pleasant voice; do you also assume a pleasing shape if commanded by the Magician?

I guess I need to submit a story now...

Mike - Typical men. :)

Gabriel - Thanks. And I require no commands or magicians; my shape is naturally pleasing.

I wouldn't know...I haven't seen it.

Maybe one day, you'll move up to posting you're ankles. Until then, I can just surf for porn while I listen to your voice. It's probably better that way...
