Holy cow, Claire was introduced in 2012? That's 7 years ago!  :psyduck:

I know, right? Time flies. Although we didn't hear or see much from him, Elliot has been around even longer.

I like robots and I cannot lie
You human beings can't deny
When a bot walks in with a positronic brain
Ain't no need to explain
You get sprung! And I do mean sprung
One look and your bell got rung
She walked in looking classy
Butt emblem on her chassis...

Meh. I've been reading QC since 2003.  "Time flies" means nothing to me at this point  :psyduck:

And Bossa Nova /slash/ Electroswing seems awesome. Someone should do that. And probably already has.

EDIT: Imagine Os Mutantes crossed with Parov Stelar.

EDIT2: what I would really love, though, is a mix of Os Mutantes and Ladytron.

You're probably an old person then. Well, older than me. and I'm in my mid 30s now.

EDIT to avoid double posting:
Faye calling Marten a dong makes me wonder: where's Ursula?

Some relevant strips about Tai and drugs:

Yeah, she uses drugs. I never disputed that. But that doesn't mean she has a problem with it.

Let's try a daring comparison: In QC, Faye has a problem with alcohol. The consequences have been made obvious, and her problem made her miserable and sick. I can't see any of that with Tai, which seems happy, rather balanced and reasonably healthy. She does sports, has lots of friends, has a stable job involving some responsibilities and just got engaged. I can't see any symptom of a problem, here.

I don't know the other names you mention, but when I started my current job last September and made friends with a co-worker and started swapping CDs, the first thing he lent me was Os Mutantes.

The fact that she's kept her job strongly implies that she's stopped using incapacitating drugs while on the clock.

To me "problem" means being out of control, not necessarily waiting until the destroyed relationships or emergency room visits. For example, I'll mention a former friend who said "I'm a better driver drunk than most people are sober". Problem.

I'm with Marten in that first one.
I've got some dark stuff lurking in there.
Thankfully/unfortunately it usually only surfaces if I'm trying to sleep after being awake 20+ hours.

I have ingested an inordinate amount and array of controlled substances over the years, but I do not do hallucinogens. I have enough issues with hallucinations with them. And the few experiences I have had with hallucinogens went very very badly. My inner demons are not subtle.

? I'm in my mid 30s also. I'm a bit confused by your comment.

EDIT: I meant that "time flies" means nothing to me -- regarding QC. I have been desensitized.

Well, I started 'late', when I was in my mid 20s, and for some reason I always think people started at that age, too.

Looks like folks want some HD lo-fi rainy chill-out jazz.

Here's the closest things that YouTube provided.
