    Alvin & the Chipmunks...

    I was a child in the 80s and had the Chipmunk Punk album (yeah, like the kind of album you play on a record player). I found it was really weird if I set the turntable to "slow" because they had "normal" tone but it just sounded wrong. The songs on that album were all covers of popular songs...

    What do you wear in a heatwave?

    I live on a farm and we have horses, so I spend a fair amount of time in the barn or riding on trail. No matter how hot it is, I'm always wearing jeans and a t-shirt, socks, and boots. Actually, I HATE wearing shorts. . .not sure why, I just don't like them. So even when it's hotter than...

    The Importance of friendship?

    You're kind of stuck with your family. I mean, even if you choose not to spend time with them, you'll always be connected to them as relations. I'm not "close" with anyone in my family, really. My mom is the one I'm probably closest to - but it's not like I tell her everything or go to her...

    Where've you been/what did you do this summer?

    Several horse-camping trips with my sig-other. We got rained on every single time but still had fun. Lots of short day-riding trail rides with the horses, too. Got our hay in for the year. 224 bales in the loft, plus another 60 or so downstairs. Put up new pasture fence. Fixed some...

    Is fursuiting like blackface

    Your GF has put way, way too much thought into this. She may need to get out of the house more. . .or maybe eat more vegetables or something. More than likely, she's just saying this crap to get you stirred up. But, if you really want me to, I can go out to my barn and ask the horses if they...

    A fursona can evolve and change, too. I've had a few "original characters" that I used in RP, and I still have them but my true fursona is my orca/wolf as she is the one I most relate too and identify with. Even she has changed a bit over the years, though. . .her style, mostly.

    Cliché furries

    To quote/paraphrase Joel Hodgson in one of his early stand up routines "I can make thousands of different balloon animals. . .but they all come out. . .looking. . .like little dogs. . ."

    I'm new!! any advice for a new furry?

    How to be a furry. Buy a fursuit. Or, not. Be an artist. Or, not. Be a writer. Or, not. Be a musician. Or, not. Be a gamer. Or, not. Listen to nothing but synthesized forms of music. Or, not. Go to Cons and furmeets. Or, not. Buy lots of art and commissions of your fursona. Or, not. Be...

    Cliché furries

    Rainbows. Rainbows everywhere. Piercings. Piercings everywhere. Tattoos. Especially "tribal" tattoos and markings. Again, everywhere. Ravers. . .clubs. . .glowsticks. . .and all things related to techno-music. Gamers. The assumption that everyone owns one of the most recent gaming...

    Straight Furs?

    Definitely straight here. I simply do not have any sexual attraction to my own gender (which is female and always has been). Even in NSFW furry art, or any similar material, whether it's furry or human or whatever else, there is nothing about F on F that does anything for me. I lean more...

    Yep, I remember those. Like, three rows of buttons, one button for each channel, and you had to hit the "row" button to select a channel from a different row. The box was big and clunky. I grew up in an era when black and white tvs were actually still available for purchase. We had one when I...

    Strange Dreams

    Some mornings, if I wake up well before my alarm clock and decide to try to get a bit more sleep, I always ALWAYS have a dream where I at at a former job with my horrible supervisor. It was an office job, with all kinds of filing and paperwork to do. In my dream, I actually am no longer...

    Hypercolor t-shirts. Umbro shorts. The Odyssey II game system. Sega Genesis. Original NES console. Not having a remote control and actually having to get up and turn a dial on the TV to change the channel, which wasn't too big of a deal because we only had, like five channels including PBS...

    I'm not sure "dehumanize" is the right word for it. . .but I think significantly less of people who have proven a total lack of personal accountability for their own life struggles. I mean, we all mess up at one point in another, but there are some people who just. keep. screwing. up. They...

    What can I do to be loved?

    Be authentic. Like who you are and don't constantly seek praise or approval or reassurance from others. Be the kind of person you'd want to be friends with. I've known so many people who have expectations of what they want from others but are unwilling to look at themselves. In other...
