Agh! Now I'm going to be wondering just who that was I met in the Montgomery station on Halloween. While playing around on Hyzenthlay, with a little of that Inuki/Skifi background exposed, someone sat down next to me and asked if I was interested in furries, and whether I drew them. (Yes, and yes, although not in quite a while) At the same time, a Chinese couple were quite taken by its display, so I played a couple trailers and music videos.. ^_^ Eventually, I enquired the same of him, and was handed a stuffed sketchpad with stacks of very good furry artwork - just as my train rolled in. ^_^;; If I'd been less frazzled, I'd have thought of just waiting for the next one (being Halloween, service frequency was a bit screwed up :).. ah well. I am but a panda of very little brain.

From mycroftb, news of a Flickr community, Bunny Lovers Unite, with more adorable bunny photos than you can shake several deciduous forests at.

Ahh, great to see more Creature Comforts.. a new series of said shorts is now airing on ITV in the UK; I've just enjoyed the latest, "Beast in Show", with voices from the Wessex County Fair.

I thought shep_shepherd might like to lay his paws on one or two geegaws from this CafePress store, as noted by thewerewolf..

From the world of science comes news of singing mice: "Mice are rarely the source of romantic inspiration, but it now appears that male mice may serenade potential mates with melodies approaching the complexity of bird song." (Wow, this even made Slashdot. Rodents and geeks do go together!)

I felt it incumbent upon me to forewarn anyone considering entering into professional philosophy, upon seeing this excerpt presented by arbutus: "In fact, it so undoubtedly exists that it cannot be thought of as not existing. For one can think there exists something that cannot be thought of as not existing, and that would be greater than something which can be thought of as not existing. For if that greater than which cannot be thought can be thought of as not existing, then that greater than which cannot be thought is not that greater than which cannot be thought, which does not makes sense. Thus that greater than which nothing can be thought so undoubtedly exists that it cannot even be thought of as not existing."

The author has since been reincarnated and was responsible for large portions of the US tax code.

rabitguy found this rather special subwoofer. It goes.. low.

Rather nice to see Fiesta's producing good plush still/again - wolff_slaven justifiably enthused over this cute skunk. Ah, got to love that tail.. and how about this river otter by Hansa? Remarkably good for the price.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Something that made me think of you: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/west_midlands/4396126.stm


Aw.. ^_^; Cool that they've managed to keep siblings together - rare as my kin are, splitting up of families is all too commonplace.

and normally showed no desire to escape until last week when a second panda escaped.

It's a mass breakout! (Oh, wait.. 70 in the UK? Well, maybe not much emphasis on the "mass", then)

Red pandas are similar to racoons and tend to live high up in trees, feeding on bamboo.

Because, as we all know, raccoons are avid fans of bamboo. (Time to send a copy of "Eats, Shoots & Leaves" to said journalist :) And.. well, nothing against raccoons, but that comparison's a bit like saying a fox is similar to a golden retriever. ^_^
Wot, no huskies? Superb art, though.
Nor even dalmatians, which rather surprised me. (Or Lhasa Apso or Samoyed, two of my particular favorites. Floofy pups, yay!)

I'd wonder about a red panda version, but really, who needs world domination? So many meetings, keeping one's henchmen in line, traps to maintain.. really such a complex business.

Well, if I were into such things, of course.
ohmyGod! what cute plushies! I have got to get at least five of them, maybe ten! It christmas time!
I could really use another bunny or two[1]. ^_^ (But, I shouldn't get any more just yet, given I do in fact have quite a few more, but almost all of my plush companions are still in storage, until I actually have the space to take them out)

Love the icon, btw. ^_^

[1] But then, that goes without saying.
Funny how you meet people eh? :)

My mate loves the German Sheppard stuff. Might have to find an Xmas present there.

I'm not sure about the fan woofer though. *Grin* Though it is interesting to note they did thiner website on Open Office.

I have seen servo driven woofers that were intended for low frequency response. But I can't tell if this fan system is for real or not.
Amusingly, the subwoofer appears to've subsequently hit Slashdot. ^_^ I need to read through the comments, but it does appear to be genuine, if fairly insane. :)

But will I ever know who that mysterious fur was? ^_^; (Or he I, for that matter :) All part of the mystery of life. ^_^
That subwoofer.. they're actually serious, aren't they?

Oh my.

I have to say, I'd love to actually hear such an installation in action. (I suppose it breaks down as $100 for the fan and $12800 for the installation.. :)

Of course, now I'm going to be wondering about the rapid (for a motor) response times necessary to execute such low frequency pushes of air, without adding its own noise..
Hey! Wow! :P
I have visions of everyone else at the next meet wearing one of those shirts. ^_^
Eeee! Singing mouses! xD
Will you now be offering a demonstration? ^_^
I would, but you wouldn't like it. It would make a bad noise ¬.¬
