SubscribeStar Update: All Systems Go!
The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is now open for business.
Those seeking an alternative to Patreon for supporting Scott and Quantum Vibe, SubscribeStar is another option. Paypal is not available with SubsribeStar, but credit cards are accepted. Plans for accepting crypto-payments are in the works. Stay tuned.
SubscribeStar update: Not yet
The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is open, although the site seems to be going through some growing pains.
For that reason I'm advising Patrons looking to switch over, to wait a little while longer. I subscribed to a couple of channels there and there are some billing issues. If they get cleared up within a week, I'll announce the ALL CLEAR and invite everyone unhappy with Patreon to come over.
The Transcript For This Page
Large panel, establishing shot of the lobby at Hôtel de Crillon. This place had been meant to be a 4-star hotel, but has since devolved into a transient residence-hotel. Merry and her three clients – 'the boys' – are standing amidst the overstuffed furniture, Merry handing out card-keys to the boys, who are looking around at the place. Larry is taking a hit off a joint. There are ruck-sacks with the boys' belongings on the floor at their feet.
Merry: All right, you're in rooms 423, 424 and 425.
Merry: You're paid up for a decaday, after that you'll need to pay rent out of your own earnings.
Morris looks at his key-card with disdain, Lawrence sticks his in a pocket, as Kinko takes the third card from Merry
Morris: Huh. Ten grams per decaday for this dump?
Merry: Well, it includes breakfast, and laundry service.
Morris, his ruck-sack slung over his shoulder, trudges away towards the elevators. Lawrence and Kinko look at each other has Merry looks on.
Morris: This ain't no Bob's Bail Bond, Bed and Breakfast , that's fur sure.
