Or Obsidian Podcast, or whatever the name will eventually be. Are we still doing this? If so, how can I help?

    That's a great question. Are you? I mean, why the hell are we paying you people?!

    We're getting PAID?! And sorry, at least for me I've just been REALLY busy lately, and once things calm down a bit, I'm willing to help out again. :)

    What do you mean 'We're getting PAID?!" Who have I been mailing all these pies to?

    I'd say something about thread hijacking, but you're the content director so...

    My name's Duskreign.

    I find Pies.

    That's my job.

    (Cue seedy 1940's detective movie jazz)

    I just came back from a messy case. Boysenberry. Long story short, my shirt is stained so bad, I'd be better off dying it blue than tryin' ta get it bleached white again.

    I hung up my hat, because we all wear them these days, and I noticed something. A shadow moving across the thin strip of light under my door... and suddenly, a letter was shoved through.

    I ran to the door and threw it open, but like some famous sports figure of my time renowned for his or her speed and/or ability to hide quickly, the messenger was gone. Like, gonesville, because we said things like that back... now...

    I looked at the letter, and it had no return address. It also had no send-to address. There was nothing written on the letter. Also, it wasn't a letter. it was a pie.

    One whiff told me everything I needed to know. Pumpkin. The Halloween Hoods were back in town. Guess I ain't settling down early tonight after all.

    Well... no sense letting this pumpkin pie go to waste.

    As I finished my seventh slice, I noticed something that, in my pumpkin induced euphoria, I must have completely overlooked before. Nearly the entire pie tin was a bomb. The kind with sticks of dynamite and an old-timey wind-up alarm clock with the two over-sized bells on top. The clock said 11:30, but the fools set it for AM. I had plenty of time to deal with this.

    After finishing the rest of the pie, I searched around the office and found another three pies. These were from earlier this afternoon, but I'm not the kinda palooka what looks Serendipity in the eye. Serendipity's eye's like a gift-horse's mouth. That's what my grandkids will one day say that their granddad always said. After finishing off these three pies, I slipped into something a little more comfortable (because that's something that happens a lot in these kinds of fil... fil... filled-with-noir-adventure times we live in.)

    The next morning, I woke up at 11:25, looked at the clock, and thought to myself "Pie." After that, I thought "I'll just hit the snooze button when the alarm goes off, buy myself another few winks (because that's what we called sleep-time-units in olden days of yore). But I forgot that bomb clocks didn't have snooze alarms, and the bomb exploded and I died.

    So thanks for nothing, Obsidian Portal! You set me up the bomb pie.

    That's awesome Dusk. .And it's still happening. I mean I want to but I we all need to find a time we can do some sort of massive chat on Skype or something, so we can actually discuss what's going to be happening.. and then we can go from there.. I can do it anytime so all I need is when you, garaan and Jim and whoever else wanted to do this thing.. As awesome as I'd like to think I am I can't quite manage creating and entire podcast by myself :P

    Nice job Dusk.

    After all this talk of pie I have to admit I'm feeling a little self conscious that I made apple crisp last night. Don't judge me too harshly. ;)

    I only judge you, DarkMagus, because you didn't share.

    Apple Crisp is just like pre-chewed Apple Pie. Pie-God approves.
