EP029: Crystal Balls

By Susie Hawes.
Read by Evo Terra (of The Dragon Page).

Yeah, that’s it. Oh, that’s nice. You’ve got strong hands, Mister. Are you psychic? Maybe just a little? No? Well, I can fix that.

Naw, I can’t tell you where to find a bottle of Mad Dog, but I can get you the money to buy one.

Rated PG. Contains violence, immoral psychic paraphernalia, and grown women scrying.

    Great story and although I grew up in New York I just couldn’t place what part of the City Evo’s accent would be from…Enid, Claremore..one of those further away outlying boroughs of New York….

    ballsy Evo, mighty ballsy! 🙂
    Happy Holiday all.

    Everyone knows that cyrstal balls from NYC have their own dialect unique to their ilk.

    Neat story, and I approve of Evo’s reading. A lot of the time it didn’t even sound like him, and he’s generally got a distinctive voice.

  4. Great story. And the voice… What can I say? Evo yet again brings an inanimate object into some sort of bizarre vocal dimension. I applaud Steve’s choice to avoid the complication of having Evo read a story in an accent while providing different voices… snicker… now, that’s something worth hearing.

    There has got to be a story somewhere told entirely from the perspective of a Russian matrushka doll as it talks to a stuffed Mongolian yak as they plan an assault on an Australian kangaroo puppet.

    As an aside to Al Saiz… I think you’ve gotten the borough right. I think that includes Tahlequah Street and Midwest City Avenue. I thought Evo grew up near Tulsa Square…

    I must confess, this was a much, MUCH better reading that that lousy Don Ysidro pile of crap. I was only reminded it was Evo reading in a silly voice a couple of times, unlike that last reading that yanked me out of the story and threw me across the room countless times.

    Stick with what you’re good at Evo, self-congratulatory speaking, insulting your audience, and pretending to be inanimate objects. It’s much more entertaining!

    Selling out isn’t too bad as long as you didn’t go through your career claiming to be some kind of anti-capitalist anarcho-punk, saying you’ll never give into the machine before running out of money later in life and doing just that a’la The Sex Pistols.
