Dare to Compare: Bob Sinclar – Rock This Party

Bob Sinclar – Rock This Party is a excellent hardcore party song. It doesn’t matter you age, for when you hear this song you want to do one thing…and that is DANCE!!!

On the other hand the official video is another matter. As you can see it’s nothing more than a group of kids copying other music videos. Frankly I rather listen to song than watch this video.

Wuff 2015 official video

Is a party video, everyone in this video is dancing. Including the staff at WUFF, which in case you didn’t is a fur con held in Ukraine. If you ever doubted how much furries love their fur cons, this will change your mind..guaranteed.

Associated Student Bodies

according to Wikifur

Associated Student Bodies, abbreviated as ASB, was a series of eight adult comic books produced by Lance Rund and Chris McKinley in the 1990’s. It has become a staple comic of the Furry fandom and most every furry art aficionado is familiar with it on some level.

The story of ASB revolves around a young lion, Daniel, who goes off to college to share a dorm with a wolf, Marcus, and an entire floor of predominantly homosexual roommates of various species. The series accounts Daniel’s discovery of his own same-sex feelings for Marcus, dealing with being gay in a hostile environment, and reconciling his feelings with his family and faith.

The series has inspired yearly calendar addendums, art print portfolios, and t-shirts. It was written by Lance Rund to be a complete story with a definitive beginning and end, and so it has not continued beyond its original eight issues. Before the reprint in 2004, issues of ASB could fetch $50 to $100 or more on various furry auction venues, such as FurBid and FurEAuction.

The series ran from 1998 to 2000, with a hardcover “yearbook” collection of all eight issues published in 2004.

I’m a furry. And I’m finally at home with my wild side

The Guardian (A English Newspaper) recently did a truly wonderful article on what it is like to be a furry. They do touch on some sensitive topics like that CSI episode. But they do go on to say it truly does not represent the fandom.

Anthro Aliens?

Totally by accident the other day I came across this article on aliens on the University of Pennsylvania site. It was on the possibility of anthro aliens.

Anthropomorphism is common, however, in popular culture, and we often find animals (in advertising etc. as well as in cartoons, etc. ) acting with human attributes, and of course, with language . In fact, in many cartoons, animals are depicted as having language with which they communicate with each other, but either they deliberately conceal this from humans (for self-protection or whatever), or humans are too stupid to figure their language out. We also have another kind of anthropomorphism, which refers to primitive hominids (Neanderthals etc.) and their ability to communicate, and our inability to judge how much language and/or technology they actually mastered. There are also jokes and cartoons that make fun of wild men like Tarzan, and his ‘primitive’ linguistic and communicative skills. And there are also ads in the media that use sounds of animals to simulate speech, as in the Budweiser commercials, where frogs and other swamp creatures seem to be asking for Budweiser beer. One of my favorite types is the one that makes fun of the `my dog ate the homework’ excuse many students (used to) use to explain why their work is late.
