Insert Clever Introductory Topic Here
« on: 24 May 2012, 10:14 »

Hey. I'm new here, I suppose. Been reading through QC for maybe a week now, still yet to catch up completely. The comic's given me much entertainment so far and quite a few laughs which is usually a pretty rare thing for me.

I'm probably not indie enough for the rest of you. I'm kind of new to the indie world, really. Seems like something I'd enjoy being a part of, but I'm just too lazy to really figure out 'how to indie'. I'll just stick around here and hope maybe the indie rubs off on me, I suppose.

Since you don't really care, my interests are ponies, map-making/editing and (very) minor graphics-related stuffs.

Welcome.  This is not specifically an indie enclave - whatever that might mean.  Rather, people are free to express their views and to discuss those of others, in a respectful way as set out in the rules.

I think we're orange enough without added orange text, though - don't you agree?  And it makes your post look like a big clickable link.

I had to Google around to find out what indie means, and it's probably just as well that I forgot whatever I read. It only seemed to make a difference in the first few hundred comics, when Jeph was establishing his characters' indie cred (is that the right expression?) and probably his own. I think Jeph was quoted saying that even in the comics that discussed music there were points that the uninterested could appreciate, and on a subsequent archive binge, I decided he was right. Anyway, there are some great musical moments. Hanners learning drums is certainly one of those. Enjoy, and welcome!

Well, I'm all caught up. Let the withdrawal begin. Should there be any symptoms I should look out for?

Calling family members by character's names. 


It really doesn't help anything, no matter how strong the resemblence is.

If the pace of QC comics seems agonizingly slow after the initial catch-up, you can always go back for another binge, and repeat until you've memorized them.

^This.

When you know to laugh, when somebody utters "57", and show a sad-face at "1799", then you will know that you have been assimilated.
