In the beginning there was Eschaton, and Atrios was its prophet.
Then in the first Great Summer of Exploration of Iberian Seafood, the Atrios did depart from his people but left The Four to sustain the people in his stead. The Four–Leah, Lambert, Tresey and the Farmer–did hold forth at such length that after Atriosreturn they went and started their own land. They called it Corrente and it was good.
Time passed and things changed. Now in the winter of the Great Change, after the summer of Hope, the natural order of things calls for another group to come forth and blather for the good of Mankind and the improvement of its lot. Some of us came forth from the land of Corrente and others have been gathered in directly from the House of Tasteless Music Videos, and I think at least two snuck in the back door while somebody was taking out the empty liquor bottles, but at any rate here we are.
The masthead includes such awesome names as Chicago Dyke, Professor Womat, Sarah, Moe Syzlak and, well, me (Xan) whom you might already know. There are some names which might be new to you (some of them new people, others new names on old people–wait, that doesn’t sound nice. Never mind that now.) We’ve laid in the best in food and beverage imagination and long experience can select, and built one hell of a set. Now it’s time to put on a show, kids–it’s all improv, so let’s have at it.
curtain up, light the lights, we’ve got nothin’ to hit but the heights. Welcome aboard.
