The Block - Characters - The Hermit

Everyone knows someone who's a little 'off.' Herman, or The Hermit, as he's become known, thrives on most of the things that normal people try to avoid: fear, pity, disdain, and retribution for a deep, painful secret. He's the one in the grocery store that cuts you off at the checkout line even though you've got one item and he has a cart-full. The one who speeds up at every yellow light, pumps his brakes when you try to pass, and enjoys Disneyland for the sole purpose of discretely popping the $13.00 Mickey Mouse balloons. Is he dangerous? We don't know - he may not even know. One thing for sure, he crossed a line at the BBQ with 40 witnesses, and now his little, warped world is in danger of being exposed.

A Rankings and Ratings Rant

It's funny. . .The more popular this show becomes, the lower I fall in the Podcast Alley Storytelling ratings. Must be because I don't shameless ask for your votes on that site. Hey - I'm # 2 on IdiotVox. . .for what that's worth. . .I slipped from 7th to 23rd place on in the same span of time my subscriptions jumped 20%! Go figure. Anyway, if you'd like to vote for me on Podcast Alley and help The Unreal OC climb back up in the Storytelling category or de-throne King Bonk from his # 1 seat on IdiotVox ( and move me up to 1st place, then don't let my passive-aggressive tone here stop you. Either way, I sincerely appreciate your support.
