Hanners will stand awkwardly in the corner by the restroom at tSB, trying not to be noticed.

How about an employee exchange scheme? Elliott goes to CoD and Faye goes to TSB, and subsequently drives away their entire clientelle.

I can see Elliott being the delivery guy for both tSB and CoD. We don't know about his other qualifications yet, though? I suspect there was a reason for him to wear an apron, so he may not have time for CoD's burro duty.

OTOH I don't see a common pool of baristas emerging. It might be hilarious to have Renee greeting Angus at CoD and Hannelore greeting Marten at tSB, but I don't see either of them going for it.

You really needed a poll where we can pick more than one option...

With Renee at tSB, you don't need Cosette to burn both  places down.  I also see awkward reconciliation, but it may not be ths week, depending on the other arcs that creep in.

Considering that I was in checkout line at my local supermarket at 6pm yesterday, part of me was a little disappointed that I didn't get to go looting.

But yeah, we're all still here. Waiting for the next nutcase.

He generally stays away from topical stuff nowadays. I think he's even said directly he tries to stay away from anything that dates the material.
EDIT: Although Friday's comic, with its title, could be taken as a non-topical reference to a topical, er, topic. If that's the case, well played, sir.

Justin.tv has no appreciation for Bonercat.

e: From the Justin.tv ToS:

Quote
8. Prohibited Conduct.
BY USING THE JUSTIN.TV SERVICE YOU AGREE NOT TO:
[words]
8.4 post, upload, or distribute any Lifecaster Content or other content that is unlawful or that a reasonable person could deem to be objectionable, offensive, indecent, pornographic, invasive of another's privacy, harassing, threatening, embarrassing, distressing, vulgar, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or otherwise inappropriate

[more words]

11. Termination; Terms of Service Violations.
11.1 Justin.tv.

You agree that Justin.tv, in its sole discretion, for any or no reason, and without penalty, may terminate any account (or any part thereof) you may have with Justin.tv or your use of the Justin.tv Service and remove and discard all or any part of your account, User profile, and any Lifecaster Content, at any time. Justin.tv may also in its sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing access to the Justin.tv Service, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to the Justin.tv Service or any account you may have or portion thereof may be effected without prior notice, and you agree that Justin.tv will not be liable to you or any third party for any such termination. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive or illegal activity may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. These remedies are in addition to any other remedies Justin.tv may have at law or in equity. As discussed herein, Justin.tv does not permit copyright infringing activities on the Justin.tv Service, and will terminate access to the Justin.tv Service, and remove all Lifecaster Content or other content submitted by any Users who are found to be repeat infringers.
11.2 You.

Your only remedy with respect to any dissatisfaction with (i) the Justin.tv Service, (ii) any term of this Terms of Service, (iii) any policy or practice of Justin.tv in operating the Justin.tv Service, or (iv) any content or information transmitted through the Justin.tv Service, is to terminate this Terms of Service and your account. You may terminate this Terms of Service at any time by discontinuing use of any and all parts of the Justin.tv Service.

So basically they can terminate your account on the first infraction because you offended someone's right to be not offended, and if you don't like it go away. :| (Also you basically sign over all content broadcast on their system to them so they can do whatever they want with it with no obligation to compensate you.)

So I guess we're going back to ustream? Or is there another live broadcast thing that's actually halfway decent?

Which is a wise move, given how long it takes to get through one year of strip time.  Only problem is, it does restrict the bands Marten et al are allowed to like, which for a strip about hipsters is a major drawback.

For comic #1931...

1. This strip makes me wonder how far it is between Coffee of Doom and The Secret Bakery.  My impression is that it is within "relative" walking distance (not needing to take a bus, car, &/or train).

2. Not sure why, but I liked Faye's ":psyduck:" reaction in panel #2.  You know you have screwed up, somehow, when you cannot get the (or any) words out.  Gods know I have had that moment more than once if life...  ("that...it- gyerg- arrggh!!")

3. Poor Elliot, displaying Marten-esque traits in badly chosen moments for blunt honesty comb‌ined with a poor choice of words.

4. This has to be the greenest we have seen Hanners' eyes yet, but I also like the " ... " reactions of Faye and Padma too.

5. If you are fishing with the intent to eat what you catch, yes you cut the head off.  If you are "sport" fishing, you generally crack their head &/or quickly suffocate them (dry ice, alcohol, etc).  If you are working in the fishing industry, you slice the underside open and scrape the insides out :-P .

Or just put 'em on ice in the back of your truck and drive home.  By the time you get there, they've drowned in the air and you can gut them easily.

I don't fully understand why Hanners stayed. I assume tSB and CoD are within walking distance but probably bordering on too long a walk or unfamiliar enough that Hanners didn't want to do it alone? Although she's been to tSB a few times so that doesn't really make sense. I'm also guessing she's okay being near Elliot but not walking alone with him because they're in a public place surrounded by people? But does the walk to CoD go down scary alleys or something then? You'd think she'd realize streets would have people all around too? Unless it's the middle of the day so everyone is in work or something so they're not as crowded as usual but then there's all the shops they pass with glass windows people can se-- ADJGH

2. Not sure why, but I liked Faye's ":psyduck:" reaction in panel #2.  You know you have screwed up, somehow, when you cannot get the (or any) words out.  Gods know I have had that moment more than once if life...  ("that...it- gyerg- arrggh!!")

As my brain breaking shows up there, I think Faye's reaction is more, "What? Your logic? I don't get it!" But it could be a mix of both if her and Padma just got up and went without informing Hanners, assuming she could work her way back.

And obligatory D'AWW over Hanner's in panel 4.

By the time you get there, they've drowned in the air and you can gut them easily.

Sorry to say, but the reason fish die is because air is not dense enough for most species to force the oxygen rich fluid over the gills, so technically they asphyxiate. Drowning refers specifically to water entering the lungs.

I love Hanners' expressions, but I think she might be overreacting slightly in this instance. i.e. to a man humanely dispatching of caught animals.

I have several times (like this morning, in fact) had to go through a screen saying that the channel contained "adult content" - which is presumably allowed, or they wouldn't have that screen.  If bonercat is worse than adult content, I'm wondering what they think adult content is!

I notice also that the screen they display says "the community" has closed the channel, when of course, the account is with justin.tv, not the community; weasel words of some sort, I guess.

It was, obviously, a joke.
Well, yeah.  I just wanted an excuse to use the word "unraptured".

I have to agree with Faye. Hanners' logic seems more... special than usual.

I think Hanners is just trying to cover for inertia...

Somehow "I don't know him!  He could be  KNiFE KILLER!"  sounds better than "I don't know!  I didn't know where you guys went, or what was going on, so I just hung out, even though it was AWKWARD!"

It's just a case of good reason/real reason.

I think Hanners was trying to play it cool and not make any sudden movements around the potential knife killer.

She may have been waiting for back up or who knows stay on camera, most retail stores have CCTV. So at least then she would not be a vicitm whlile on the premises.

Who knows! Hanners does not think like other folk.

If you are working in the fishing industry, you slice the underside open and scrape the insides out :-P .

That sounds like what a lot of industries do to a lot of people.

Oh, you were talking about fish.  Right.

RE: JTV: I think I know why Jeph got his channel sacked. It was probably licensed music. LordKaT ran into a similar problem, so he resorts to playing video game music and/or classical music to avoid that. Although, I'm amazed JTV didn't warn Jeph beforehand because LordKaT was given notice. Then again, JTV's moderation bots have been more hair-trigger-sensitive lately. My post in the L.A. Noire thread? I was referring to LordKaT who got his channel closed for 18-20 hours because he began streaming L.A. Noire's installation screen on the XBox 360. Jeph might as well check in with JTV about this problem and figure it all out.

Funny how people don't think classical music has the same copyright constraints as anything else!  I recently had to check out performance rights for some music written in 1895 that was still in copyright.  And even if the music itself isn't in copyright, virtually any stereo recording is.

I think he was talking about the kind of stuff you can find over on musopen.org's music listings or whatever huge archives of public domain music are out there.

A few weeks later in QC time:

Elliot and Hanners are decent friends by this point.  One day Hanners wants to go visit TSB and catches a ride with Elliot.  When Elliot picks her up on his way to work, he realizes he forgot something at his place.  When they get to his place Hanners follows him in to see his living conditions.  He rents a house and it looks very nice on the outside.  Then as Hanners approaches, she notices a stick standing straight up in the yard.  On the tip of that stick is a fish head.  Elliot notices her shock and immediately explains that it's for the birds... They're his friends.

Then they go inside the house.  Inside is the strongest, worst smell ever- Rotten fish.  Elliot doesn't even think about it, as he is used to the smell.  Hanging from the ceiling are decorations of fishing string, fish hooks, and, of course, the guts of slaughtered fish hanging from the hooks.  Hanners is in deer-in-the-headlights panic mode now.  She's stunned.  She notices, out of the corner of her eye, the kitchen table covered with piles of dead fish.  Several of these fish with a knife sticking into the side of them.

Elliot walks over to the table and picks up a knife.  He turns around and looks at Hanners,

"What's wrong?"

Hanners doesn't hear anything.  She only sees Elliot staring at her... with a knife.  Her gag reflex kicks in at the same time her screaming and run-the-hell-away reflexes kick in.  She runs all the way home screaming, only stopping to dry heave along the way.  When she finally gets home she locks herself in her closet and never comes back out.

Elliot frowns, "But, it's more humane than bashing them against a rock."
