Ash feathered to the crystal surface with the delicacy of a lilting melody. The curl of smoke mixed with the splashes of shadow that framed her tender features. She had come in here asking for help. The sort of help that only Scotch-soaked ingrates like myself could offer. Money freely offered and taken. A smoldering glance from her sealed the deal.

Somewhere high above the naked city where mundane folks go about their mundane lives there resides a single office in a dark corner. It was there that those in need of answers came and it was there that the boys gathered to speak about cool shit like film noir and the like. That's right! Nick, Sam and Jeff sit and talk about one of their favorite genres of film/literature: Film Noir!
