Excuse me- but this post deals with an event that happened a few
weeks ago- the event being the airing of the "gay sci-fi con" segment
on Comedy Central's "Daily Show." I know the more pedantic and trite
among you might say that this is an example of BF (and I in particular)
re-opening an issue that's long past.
Well- yes, and no (more of the latter than the former, but I
digress.) It's not re-opening old wounds, as the issues surrounding
the airing of this segment, as well as the implications for the fandom
at large, were never addressed properly. In fact, I found the
deafening silence that followed in the wake of this media atrocity
almost as infuriating as the segment itself.
Now, truth be told, when I ran a draft of this past the BF rank-and-
file, a few actually objected- they said I was being too heavy-handed,
and one person timidly put forward that I was wrong to be offended by
this segment (I'm still in wonder over that...) Keeping this in mind,
I will make the following statement to placate those within the BF
movement, as well as it's detractors that:

These are MY statements, reflecting MY views. This post, in no way,
reflects the policies nor the agenda of BF, and I am willing to accept
every bit of fallout and inevitable abuse that the stating of pure,
simple fact incurs in these, the most silent and relativist of times.

Begin transmission:

I told you so.
Over two years ago, I posted my embryonic website to the collective
joke known as the internet, with one of its core principles being the
warning that the fandom that I had enjoyed for almost half my life was
in mortal danger. I wrote an essay, entitled "What Is To Be Done",
lamenting the degenrate elements which had infiltrated our fandom, and
warning of the dire consequences to our fandom, should these elements
continue in their ascendency.
I warned that if the world at large should encounter our fandom
through these elements, the fandom would be irreperably damaged-
tainted as a haven for the sexually degenerate. I warned that the
proliferation of pornography depicted to the world a fandom aberrant
and despicable.

This was followed almost a year later by Squeerat's "Manifesto"-
a text which stated the facts of the matter far more bluntly and
accurately than I could have. This document led to the formation of a
core group with no ideology, no cohesive structure- other than the
common desire to bring about a change in the fandom- an effort to bring
the fandom back to it's roots- the art, the animation, the fiction, the
wonderous joy that lights a child's eye when he sees Disney's "Robin
Hood" for the first time, and the inspiration and groundbreaking
innovation that brought Albedo, TMNT, and an entire rennaisance in the
genre of Funny Animals to life.

Noble goals- simple goals. Squeerat, I, and (as we found later)
hundreds of others shared our deep sense of dissapointment that
Lifestylers, Plushophiles, Bestialists, and their ilk had taken
something we had held so dear, wiped their asses on it, and mounted the
resulting mess on a flagpole for all to see. This was a theft not of
property, or a simple fraudulent theft of ideas. This was a case of a
group of people swaggering into a house that we and many other had
built, taking over, and thrusting us to the rear, scornfully telling us
that we were no longer needed, nor wanted. They took our home, turned
it into a brothel, and spat insults at us when we objected.

Of course, our rewards for our efforts were met with
condemnation. We were called nazis, fascists- and those were the nice
names they chose for us. On the other hand, nihilists like random
(small r- he doesn't merit capitals), and rackety (ditto) said we were
taking this all too seriously.

But for two years, we pushed on as best we could. We started a
webring, which became the second-largest in furry fandom. We took to
whatever media was available to us- for the most part, we were
restricted to the internet. We started mailing lists, newsgroups, and
websites. At every turn, we were confronted with two facts: We were
not alone, yet there were people who would stop at nothing to enforce
their "open mindedness" and "tolerance" within the fandom, even if it
meant destroying it. Their purile pursuit of selfish pleasure and self-
gratification was more important, they maintained, than the efforts
that I and literally thousands of others had put into this fandom.

We had great victories- we saw our opponents humbled and
marginalized. When random tried posting our Burned Fur site to the
Portal of Evil, it ended within mere days as the farce that it was.
New anthro cons started cropping up that had rules regarding behavior
and the display of adult art. Ou webring continues to grow, as do the
ranks of our supporters.

But we didn't go far enough, fast enough. Our opponents were so
brazen, and so ubiquitous, that our efforts, restricted as they were to
the internet and a few cons, were unable to maintain and thicken the
dangerously thin veil that seperated our tainted fandom from public
scrutiny. We saw that on The Daily Show. There he was- Kevin Duane,
proudly displaying his filth to the prying cameras of comedy central.
There they were- the artists (term used very loosely) who owed their
lifeblood to the sick elements who had stolen our fandom- glibly
humiliating both themselves and waving our fandom's worst shame to
millions of households.

To a certain extent, pinheads like rackety and random had a
point- we weren't going far enough. We were pussyfooting around some
of the largest issues behind the dire straits the fandom was in. We
rarely went after the ringleaders- the few champions of the degeneracy
that was at the core of the cancer that has been steadilly gnawing away
at fandom since ConFurEnce 3.

Well- in the wake of recent events, it has become clear that this
will not do. We must acknowledge our bully pulpit, and take on the
forces that would destroy our fandom by name. We must have the courage
the mount the ivory tower, accept the uncomforatble mantle of
authority, and state unequivocably our accusations against these foul
excuses for human beings...
These people need to be exposed for what they are- they must be
hounded- persecuted, and driven back into the maggot-ridden depths from
which they emerged. Until they are, we cannot hope to make any
progress towards the rehabilitation of the fandom they so gleefully and
selfishly destroyed.

I ACCUSE:

Mark Merlino- who masterminded the debacle that was ConFurEnce 3-
advertised almost exclusively through Gay and Lesbian rescources.
The "man" who came up with the egregiously vile decision to give every
confirmed memeber of FurryMuck a free pass to the con.

I ACCUSE:

Kevin Duane- who mas hallmarked himself as perhaps the greatest
degenerate within the fandom- a despicable porn merchant who has never
shirked from displaying and pushing his wares to children.

I ACCUSE:

Steve Martin, who has steadily produced an endless stream of
questionable pornographic treacle that has catered to every whim of the
unwanted elements within the fandom. This man is a true whore to the
dollar and the anithesis of everything that stands for artistic
integrity.

I ACCUSE:

Xydexx, Oral Rinse, and the endless ranks of subhuman filth who
have subordinated the truth and the good of this fandom to their own
twisted world view- a view in which nothing is held under the light of
scrutiny, and everything is permissable, as long as it serves their own
selfish needs. It is these people who have stood in defense of the
crimes perpetrated by those listed above, and dozens of others who
would pervert our fandom into a pool of purile and hubristic self-
gratification.

I ACCUSE:

Every collar-wearing, tail-strapped-to-the-ass degenerate who
turned what was once a respectable corner of sci fi fandom into a
virtual singles bar for the sexually dyfunctional. They are little
more than craven beasts, wallowing in their own excretia, and
questioning the "tolerance" of anyone who complains about the smell.

I ACCUSE:

The Nihilists and fence sitters who sat by and let this all
happen. A single word, a statement of principle, and a little courage
was all that it took- but they found themselves incapable of mustering
the will nor the backbone such an action required. They are truly the
most craven, the most despicable of them all.

The question is staring me in the face: do I give up? Do you
folks ENJOY this? Does having your work denegrated and your fandom
dragged through the mud make you HAPPY? Does the knowledge that you've
been made the laughing stock of fandom at large, and now, the national
media, fill you with a sense of fulfillment and pride?
If I have one flaw in my addled synapses, it's my propensity to
give a damn. In a world where each new day sees a new atrocity, in a
country where more than half the population can't bother to work up the
effort to vote, and living next to a city that's drowning in it's own
cultural and moral schizophrenia, I try to stay aloof- but it's a
sham. Deep down within me there are the words and memories of people
Like Martin Luther King, John Rabe, and a thousand others who stood up
against the inevitable, and truimphed. I don't see myself as anything
like their equals- such would be hubris on a biblical scale. But their
principles are something I shall always strive to emulate and
champion. In the face of the hatred and bile spewed at me by a
thousand knee-jerk lifestylers, and the machinations of demons like
Merlino, I cannot help but march doggedly on.

The gauntlet fell when Steve Carrell exposed you for what you are-
you didn't throw it- it slipped from your addled, palsied fingers. YOU
started this- remember that. Be certain that I will.

They were fighting for basic human rights, the freedom of people, principles
of equality, an end to persecution and working to reshape the very foundations
of society into something just and fair.

You're fighting for a bloody fandom, which is nothing more than some people
sharing a small set of interests, and making it sound like it's some
world-shattering fight to the end against dread forces of evil bent upon
destroying the world. You're also forced to dredge deep into the past to work
up the proper outrage. I also think that your pulling up the name of King and
comparing your battle to his is an insult to his memory and work.

I will throw my opinion into this, and it's that you're so deep-down worried
and afraid that someone will point at you and say, "He's one of THEM!" and so
scared that people might think you a weirdo, a pervert, adnormal and outside
of decent society, you'd toss a Molotov cocktail into a crowded con just to
show them that, no, I'm NORMAL, dammit! I think the biggest fear driving you
to this extreme is that you're deathly afraid it might be you saying those
things about yourself.

Sorry, but I'll stay a nilhilistic filth-mongering fence sitter in this
matter, because the people that said you were taking this too seriously were
dead on. In my humble opinon, of course.

I do feel you'd do better to take some of that outrage and political
aspirations and find something that deserves it.

Later!

To the contrary, he is a professional artist and has published work. So
he does have a life and has contributed to the fandom and does have a
right to gripe; not to say that his words aren't a wee harsh.

You might mean that as a metaphor for his rhetoric, but after reading
Blumrich's post, which has a definite foaming-at-the-mouth quality, I
am willing to believe he would literally do that. He's off the end.

Advice to anyone who wants to wear a tail to a furry convetion: Eric
Blumrich could be attending, and he has inexplicably made it a symbol
of everything that puts him into a blind rage. You might be the first
to die. If you want to wear a tail, do so somewhere safe, like among
the general public, who will just think it's cute.

And how we have the drunken ravings of a old furry loser. Blumrich
himself should stand as a warning to new artists coming into the
fandom. His talent has been pissed away and wasted in this fandom and
see where he is? He's the kind of fellow who protests war by joining a
mob and burning down an army recruitment office. On top of that, he's
been more than happy about bragging about such mindless vandalism. And
now, he's gonna save furry. He can't even save himself.

A naive statement. The fandom was created by fetishists. The fandom
from the first organized convention on has been about sex with animals
(in real and imaginary forms). It's an 'adult' fandom and has always
been so. Get over it. And Blumrich HIMSELF told me that the neither he
nor the BFs were against spooge.

The fandom was, is and always will be something anyone looking in on it
will find to be carnival of bestiality and other animalcentric fetishs.
Accept that and move on.

The Burned Furs were a bunch of disgruntled furries who were just
looking for something to bitch about. The smarter members who were't
entrenched in the fandom realized the truth about it and left the BFs
and the Fandom entirely. Several of whom tired to help Blumrich to
leave, but alas he's hardcore furry.

Uh, the fetishists ARE the fandom. There is no real non-sexual part.
Oh, there are some smoke and mirrors to hide that fact like Yerf, but
most of the Yerf artists still draw the spooge and post it to other
furry archives. The most damning evidence against the fandom is the
existence of a movement to 'clean it up' and the fact they had to make
a special archive for 'clean' furry art.

Doesn't 'merit' capitals? Eh? 'random' and 'Random' are two different
things. But then drunks are never good with language.

Uh.. Those 'thousands' who put forth that effort were for the most part
the same fetishist you were railing against. They ARE the fandom. Hell,
the BFs are full of spoogers like MMM and even Rich Chandler hangs out
with them. The fact alone that someone like Chandler hob-nobs with them
PROVES they failed.

You're an idiot, Blumrich. I didn't give shit to PoE. Someone named
'Pooperdoo' did. Oh, I posted to the forum, but I didn't give the BF
website to PoE. And exactly how did it end? Oh, wait. That's right.
Your brain has been addled by years of drug and alcohol abuse. You see,
everyday new featured sites are added to PoE, so the old featured sites
vanish off the main page, but are still in the archives. A simple
search on 'Burned Fur' finds it. You can view the forum about the
burned furs at
http://www.portalofevil.com/wc.dll?poe~showforum~000003295~0~PORTALOFEV.

Blumrich even posted his drunken ramblings there, so it's liable to
heat up.

What the fuck kind of lifeless loser owes their 'lifeblood' to ANY
fandom? That's pathetic. Besides, the furry fandom is only about the
furry fethists. What they showed on the Daily Show was what anyone
would see at any con. They prolly see a lot worse online.

Well, the fact they you yourself declared that spooge was okay
hamstrings your 'movement'. For the most part, many current bfs seem to
be spooge artists who only do heterosexual spooge. So, perhaps, the BFs
are just antigay spooge. Of course, all spooge has a definite
bestiality undertone. I'd go so far as to characterize it as softcore
bestiality.

That's like trying to rehabilitate Hustler or Penthouse. Furry art is
primarly spooge and the fandom is about the furry fetishs. If you
remove the fetishs, you'd have nothing.

Merlino organized the first CF which was the first real furry
convention. He set the tone for the whole fandom which was about fetish
sex.

He's pretty universally reviled within the fandom, strangely. Other
porn pushers like Blinkie and Winkler are better regarded. Gonna go
after them?

Xydexx is one amoung the majority of the fandom. Sure, he's a more

That'd be the furry rankinfile, I think. You'd have as much luck trying
to get Hugh Hefner to change his lifestyle as get the furry fandom to
change its collective lifestyle.

You mean me? Well, fuck you, too. I'm not a part of the furry fandom. I
never was. I'm just someone who happened by to jeer at the freaks.
Until you summoned me back to AFF with my name, I'd pretty much quit
jeering, however. But TRY to get it thru your alcohol-fortified thick
head that the fandom is just a collection of associated fetiths and not
something you can 'fix'.

Their work is what Kevin Duane was displaying. And they SHOULD be a
national laughing stock. It's what they've earned with their sick
little fetishes. If you're in with them, Blumrich, as you sure seem to
be, you deserve being laughed even more because you're a drunken naive
fool.

Damn right you've a flaw in your addled synapeses. You're an alcoholic.
And instead of getting treatment for that, you just rail against a
fandom which is happy being about fetishs. Don't you also suffer from
depression? Have you sought treatment for that? Don't you realize that
alcohol makes depression WORSE? You can't even take care of yourself
and your own problems, Blumrich. How the fuck do you think you're gonna
reform an adult fandom? You might as well try to flatten the Rocky
Mountains with a small rockhammer. How dare you even mention those men?
You cheapen them and their work by even hinting a similarity with your
idiotic and hopelessly stupid 'movement and theirs.

They sure did, Blumrich. They started the furry fandom. They made it a
place where people who have fetishes based on animals can come and be
safe. You'd be best served by joining AA and seeking help for your
depression instead of making an ass of yourself by trying to fix
something which isn't broken. It's just not what your alcohol and drug
ruined mind thinks it is.

Must be that crazy Mark Loggins kid. Things just ain't as funky-fresh

Ya know, in the real world, from Serbia to Somalia, and from Iran to
Japan, it's the people who "give a damn" who cause the most damage.
The people who care enough about their religion that they're willing
to die for it, the people who care enough about their tribe that
they're willing to slaughter their enemy's babies to defend it, the
people who are so determined to fulfill a prophecy that they will
happily drop nerve gas bombs to bring it about... these are the people
that need to be watched closely. They may claim to be interested in
the people's salvation, but ultimately all they care about is
themselves, and they will make any sacrifice - including your life -
for their so-called "greater good."

Hundreds of Americans have died, in Jonestown, Waco, Oklahoma City,
and most recently, on the U.S.S. Cole, all at the hands of people who
"give a damn." Think about it.

Erm... The folks who died at Waco did so at the hands of the FBI/ATF, as
we all know, they never give a fuck... And Jonestown was mass suicide,
technically those guys died at their own hands...;)

I shouldn't take time for this, there are too many other, more creative
projects I should be working on, but nontheless here I am. There are some
things that should be addressed immediately, instead of waiting for a
convenient time. In my opinion, this is one of those subjects.

Hi Eric. Didn't know it was you until someone replied.

Now, I've been very noncommittal regarding the Burned Furs, not really
understanding what they're for, and not getting involved.

But I do not like to see my friends knocked around. And (hold the trumpets)

FOR THE FIRST TIME I AGREE WITH RANDOM ON SOMETHING.

First, from your post:

> I ACCUSE:
>
> Mark Merlino- who masterminded the debacle that was ConFurEnce 3-
> advertised almost exclusively through Gay and Lesbian rescources.
> The "man" who came up with the egregiously vile decision to give every
> confirmed memeber of FurryMuck a free pass to the con.

Now let's see what Random (notice I spelled his name with a capital letter.
Every man deserves respect.)

> Merlino organized the first CF which was the first real furry
> convention.

Basically our whole fandom owes it's organized existance to people like
Mark, Steve Gallacci, Marc Schirmeister, Jim Groat and others. Mark did a
thankless and hated job for many years, with Confurence.
I hope he is now enjoying his retirement from running it. I learned from
his experiences that if anyone asked me to organize a furry con and run it,
I should run like hell.

Steve Martin I do not know very well. He's a talented artist, but not
really worthy of singling out as a "who has steadily produced an endless


stream of questionable pornographic treacle that has catered to every whim
of the unwanted elements within the fandom. This man is a true whore to the
dollar and the anithesis of everything that stands for artistic integrity."

Actually that describes most every dealer in the dealer's room. You had a
table at Anthrocon as I recall.


> " Kevin Duane- who mas hallmarked himself as perhaps the greatest
>degenerate within the fandom- a despicable porn merchant who has never
>shirked from displaying and pushing his wares to children."

Now, believe it or not, we like Kevin Duane. Granted, we've never had a
fight with him. We've never sat next to him at a con, although we have sat
across from him and have asked him to tone down language - which he did.
Our tables are next to his at FurtherConFusion this year. We'll see how it
goes. We've never had balloons and blinking lights going at us from his
booth. If we did, we would have no hesitation in asking him to turn them
off because blinking lights are one of the things that set off Carole's
migraines.

By the same token, when we hear stories about his behavior from Kage, or
others, we don't contradict them, because we weren't there.

But one thing I do know. Or, in fact, Carole does.

She and Kevin were at tables in the lobby because Duckon had made a mistake.
They told Carole that she couldn't have a table because she wasn't selling
her own material...even though we were publishing at that time. "Someone"
had NOT told them that she was a writer and publisher, "Someone" had told
them that she was a dealer only. It was finally straightened out and they
each were allowed to have a small table under the stairway. He was being
circumspect at that point, making sure his video screen wasn't visible when
children and mundanes were around. He had also been circumspect in the
lobby, and had toned down language and volume when politely asked to by
Carole.

"Someone" (and we won't say who) tried to get him ejected for showing Kiddie
Porn.

Now if he does that kind of stuff, I've never even heard it rumored. He
wasn't at that time, and was definitely innocent of the charge.

Carole stood up and went to bat for him. She has never regretted it and I
stand behind her. She has a Master's Degree in Educational Media and
Library Science, and had a quite interesting discussion with the lady who
was running that section of the con - who was also a librarian - and the
several security guards who accompanied her over copyright, infringement,
publisher's rights, etc. One of the security guards did buy a CD and later
told her that he found no evidence of kiddie porn on it. He said that he
could not see how any of this had even started on the basis of that CD.

Besides, compared to some of the stuff we've seen at REGULAR cons, Kevin is
Mister Rogers, or at least lives in his neighborhood.

I don't know or am not familiar with many of the other people you accuse.
But if Mark, Kevin and Steve are pornographers you better accuse Antarctic,
Mu, Radio, Arclight, United and SFA too. As well as most of the attendees
at furrycons.

<But their
> principles are something I shall always strive to emulate and
> champion. In the face of the hatred and bile spewed at me by a
> thousand knee-jerk lifestylers, and the machinations of demons like
> Merlino, I cannot help but march doggedly on.

Let's take a look at something that happened at Anthrocon this year. As you
and most everyone knows, I was going up to people I barely knew and giving
them a sheet about IN THE ZONE. If there's a nobler cause to get involved
in in furrydom lately, I don't know it.

Almost EVERYONE I talked to and a LOT I didn't came through. You were one of
the ones that promised to help (and Daphne Lage and Jose Calderon were there
to see it) and you were one of the ones that didn't.

Now the only person I WAS upset about regarding their absence was Reed
Waller. He doesn't like me, and I'm okay with that. But a lot of the names
in IN THE ZONE were in his TWO cancer benefit books, like Stan Sakai and
others. In my opinion, he OWED it back to the fandom which had supported
him to help someone else with cancer, since doing a contribution was not
hazardous to his health. Several emails received no response, after he
agreed to be in the book.

Reed, if you're reading this, I regard your action, or rather lack of
action, as very low.

But Eric, saying you will do all you can to help our fandom, and then
agreeing to be in this cancer benefit book to help someone who I have never
met, but have heard that he has no enemies, and then reneging while still
praising your principles to the sky....

Well, it goes right along with the political ads we're being flooded with.
Empty promises.

Your ideals are lofty. But you must act on them responsibly, not just
pontificate.

Exactly. A great many of those who died at Jonestown were small
children who were much too young to understand what was going on.
A big percentage of the "mass suicide" was really murder.

Until I see some carpenter's son with a crown of thorns nailed to the
cross at some con for preaching the virtues of clean art, I really can't
take any of this THAT seriously.


All the people dying in this world for things they believe in...
Whether it be the right to believe certian concepts, or the right to
oppress others for what they believe.
Am I supposed to believe that whether my pencil draws a Disney-esque
action scene, or waste half a lead on 6 pages to draw one giant phallus
(Appologies to Mr. Winger;) is somehow going to end world hunger? End
the violence in the Middle East maybe?
Bullshit.
I like to draw, as does every artist who ever picked up a pen. What I
draw, which will be 99% tame, is my choice to make and mine alone.
I've read the BF's 'Mission Statement' and manefesto before... There
are a few things that strike me as irritating. Most obviously is this
notion that somehow less talented artists who draw spooge are just
perveted fanboys... While folks on par with Doug and Nakira are somehow
forced into it. As if talent somehow made you pure, and only the whips
and chains of grabbing fanboys with too much cash to burn keeps pulling
more and more of them into the depths of depravity and waste.
Oh heavens, get me a vial of holy water to fend them off
Does this also mean that just because I draw anthro now and then that
I'm somehow in the spooge file, just by association? I damn well hope
not. Everyone deserves to be judged on their own skill and content by
EACH PERSON VIEWING THEIR WORK. No one man, or small group, can decide
what everyone else should and shouldn't like. So please, stop.
I think more people need to worry less about what's on everyone
else's sketchbook and take more pride in whats on their own. You can
only create with your own hands, try and control everyone else's too and
you cheapen your own integrity.

This other notion that bugs me... Lets see if I can find the quote.

> Their purile pursuit of selfish pleasure and self-
gratification was more important, they maintained, than the efforts
that I and literally thousands of others had put into this fandom.

You mean to tell me somewhere there's at least 2000+ artists, writers
and fans still steamed about the introduction of smut into the works?
I'd say much less. You can't just pull random numbers out of the air and
call them proven statistics. 74.3% of all people know that.

Look, it seems to me people really just want to stick to their
corner. They pick their favorite artists and weed through the stuff they
don't want. Funny how these programs even come with filters to do just
that.
I'm new to all this. Still just poking around to see what all of you
are like and make sure I won't get creamed by an obsesive fan base. I
can't say my fears are abated, though you haven't run me off screaming
into the night yet.
Take this advice. Ask yourself if maybe you aren't in a little too
deep? Maybe some of you have forgotten that this all started out as a
quirky hobby? There will always be extremists and elitists on the
various political ends of every issue... Don't be one of them.
Raise your hand if you're still in this for fun!
Well, anyway... Dunno who I'm even talking to. To those who read this
far I'm probably preaching to the converted.

BTW, to artists like Doug and Nakira... I have a lot of respect for
your work even when I kind of shrug at the content. No hard feelings. :)
I'm sure your used to being made into people's examples by now, I just
hope I did so in a positive light.

Until the next rant...

Yaha! Je vous ai dit si!

Par-dessus il y a deux ans, j'ai posté mon website embryonnaire à
la plaisanterie collective sue comme le internet, avec celui de ses
principes de noyau est l'avertissement qui les poissons que j'avais
apprécié pour presque demi ma vie était dans le danger mortel. J'ai écrit
un essai, autorisé "que que Devrait Etre Fait", lamenter les éléments
poopi-caca qui avaient infiltrated notre chevre, et l'avertissement des
conséquences de dire à notre nez, devoir ces éléments continuent dans
leur ascendency. Jerry Lewis.

J'ai averti que si le monde à grand devrait rencontrer notre

comme un eu pour le sexuellement dégénéré comme les garçon dans l’eau
chaude. J'ai averti que le proliferation de portopotty a peint au monde
de la fondue aberrante et despicable. Milton Berle.

Ceci a été presque suivi une année plus tard par Queerast
"Manifesto"- un texte qui a déclaré les faits de la question loin plus
sans ménagements et précisément que je pourrais avoir. Ce document mené à
la formation d'un groupe de noyau avec aucune idée, aucune structure
cohésive- autrement que le désir commun à provoque un changement dans la
oreille- un effort à rapporte le pomme de terre à il est des racines-
l'art, l'animation, la friction, la joie de wonderous qui allume un oeil

pour la première fois, et l'innovation d'inspiration et
groundbreakingCela a apporté Libido, SCAG, et un rennaisance entier dans
le genre d'Animaux Drôles et delicious à la vie. Bob Hope.

Les butts nobles- les butts simples. Queerast, je, et (beacoup de

de dissapointment qui Lifesavers, Popcorn, Butterfinger, et leur ilk
avaient pris quelque chose que nous avions tenu si cher, a essuyé leur

Bien sûr, nos récompenses pour nos efforts ont été retrouvé le miel.
Nous avons été appelés zombi, figuier- et ceux-là étaient les noms
agréables qu'ils ont choisis pour nous. D'autre part, nihilists comme

Mais pour deux années, encore et encore et encore nous avons poussé
sur comme mieux nous pouvons. Nous avons commencé une orgie, qui est
devenu le plus deuxième-grand dans ma culotte. Nous avons pris à quoi que
le presse était disponible à nous- pour la plupart, nous avons été
limités au internet. Nous avons commencé mailing énumère, newsgroups, et
websites. A chaque virage, nous avons été confrontés avec deux faits:
Nous n'étions pas seul, pourtant il y avait des gens qui ne reculerait
devant rien à applique leur "ouvre tétement" et la "tolérance" dans ma

What? And vote for the only candidate who's actively interested

Whew! You had me worried.

As fan of anthropomorphics since about 1966, I think I can say, without
any qualification, that it has NOT always been, nor is it even always
NOW about sex. I was brought into it by authors such as A.A. Milne and
Thornton W. Burgess.

Simply stop by the Tai-Pan table at either ConiFur (this weekend) or
MFF later in the month, and we can show you over a decade of publishing
PG-rated material (heck, a lot of it is G-rated). (And the three
R-rated supplements we've published don't have any actual sex in them
either; that will with the next one, but both stories in question are
still definitely in the R-rated range).

What about Emile Zola? I think Zola's "words and memories" may have
played into this somehow...

And in general, what is it about the Burned Furs and French history?
First the "Manifesto", now "J'Accuse".

I agree. Completely.

Thank you for putting a little perspective on things, Mr. Goldman. And
for posting something postive, uplifting, and on-topic.

I've said much of this before, but it seems an opportune time to
say so again. I like Kevin Duane. I'm not entirely sure that I'd
call him a perfect gentleman (and I'm not entirely sure that he'd
appreciate it if I did) but he's intelligent, opinionated, and a lot
of fun to talk to. He attends more cons than anyone else I know,
and has in consequence amassed a fund of bizarre con stories.
He'd be a great talk-show guest. Ask him to tell you about Harlan
Ellison's cowboy hat sometime.

I can't think of a single furry con I've been to in the past 5 years or
so where Kevin hasn't been passing out free food. Sometimes it's
an ice cream party, sometimes pizza or hot sammiches, but it's
always something. Knowing what I do of some folx's con-going
habits, I'll guarantee that there's more than a handful of furs who've
had their only hot meal of the con courtesy of Kevin and his free
pastrami or burgers. I can't think of anyone else who's made a habit
of feeding the poor and hungry at furry cons.

Food's not the only area where his generous character shows. He
gave me a CD once when I begged off buying one on the grounds
that my money ought to be spent on a new drive instead of on media.

His most agreeable trait is that he doesn't view the fandom as a
life and death matter the way that some folx do. I'm not sure
sometimes that he takes anything all that seriously (and certain
things might go more smoothly for him if he *did* treat some
issues with more gravity) but I can guarantee that he's not one
of those dreary people who spend all their time obsessing over
"our public image". He understands that a fandom is something
you participate in for fun.

Oookay, tell me why you think Ralph Nader wants you dead.
Are you just taking the sudden association with Blumrich too
seriously? I mean, if I endorse Nader (and I do) does that mean Nader
likes dragons and hates the taste of strawberries? No.

*shrug* It's always been a great time to be Furry.

It's just getting better. -:)

Nope, it's cuz the 'Gang of Steves' is Nader's secret identity.
