    What about at the end of Contagious where Scott’s tells of the devastation & aftermath of the nuke blast?

    But I definitely didn’t do it alone.  Just mentioned my goal was to make it to the top 5 and the next day I was there!!!

    So glad to have you back my darling Sadock.  You were greatly missed and still my hero :-)

     It’s a royal pain trying to track down scenes that you just *know* are in there. Plus you wind up getting sidetracked with other scenes since the whole book is so good. ____________________________________

     This is good. Looks like I may have enough options to put an hour together (without re-listening to everything) after all ;)

     You helped out a lot last year. What’s your favorite short story?

     Since those were the only two novellas Scott wrote in the past year. That’s also the reason the post is spaced that way. Glad to hear someone else loved Kirsten Graves. I’d say either that or The Torpedo was my favorite of the short stories.

    I didn’t see that one because of the spacing.  I change my mind to that episode as well.  Love that one too.

    It was funny and crucial to the story.

Everything from the crypt is soooooo good.  But I like the Kirsten Graves episode.  Maybe it is because I have this pickle fork……..

 about it, at the end of episode 20 Chelsea starts the mods to mommy. About 16 min into episode 22 mommys complaining about whats happening to her. I’m not sure if there are any other references, I thought there were but cant find or remember them, before the final episode where General Ogden walks her out..

When Tad’s running away and then runs into Perry in the rain? Or when Tad talks to Dew at the crash scene?
At least I spelled Contagious right this time!

….from the nomination list?

I’m not sure I’ll have time to do submissions for all of them, so some feedback there would be nice. Y’all are some of the most dedicated junkies so I’d like to give you some input.

Makes me wonder if you set a record for getting into the top 5 crack babies…… 

Seems like only yesterday that I was putting together the submissions for last year’s awards. That statue with the stars in my pic set is the mini-Parsec Scott sent me.

Do you remember what that scene’s ‘title’ was? ie The sloughing skin scene is called "Betty Jewel’s Face." If not, I can probably find it.

 Keep ideas coming, I need 6 scenes in the finished product!

I thought about that scene as well.  Should be entered.

 Is the scene in Contagoius in which Betty Jewell is on the exam table and she pulls the skin off her hand and then kills Amos! It gotta be entered!

Eh, whatever. My favorite scene from Contagious is when Dew beats the crap out of Perry.
