Another entrant to digital comics delivery, following on from Limpidity (also available as a traditional publication) - PullboxOnline offers a modest spread of titles for 99¢ each, as plain CBR or PDFs. And there's Slave Labor Graphics offering individual titles for around 69¢, collections around $1.69, again as plain CBZ and PDF files. Very tempting - my Skeleton Key issues are many miles hence (paper's a veritable pain to keep moving around, let alone the nuisance factor of finding somewhere to keep it safely, or the postage costs, or having much of one's purchase price go to the printer rather than the creators. Obviously, digital copies needn't replace paper ones, but rather, be an additional option), and $5 for 23 issues is about as good as it gets. Imagine if Furrlough or Wild Life were available at those kind of prices.. !

Ever see Avenue Jew? =:) (FLV)

Has anyone actually seen Yin Yang Yo? mycroftb just pointed it out to me - despite having apparently run for several weeks now on the US version of Toon Disney, I've not seen any mention of it, no torrents, and even GooTube only has one mash-up clip. It's a Flash-animated show starring two bunnies, their giant panda master, and assorted villains.

Damn! How come I never stumbled upon SqueekyToys until now, courtesy of patch_bunny? So ~shiny~.. naturally, the orca works especially well. And there's something quite adorable about that fox's tail, as shown in the final pic. ^_^

This might be a pleasant assistance in brightening one's outlook on a bad day: faithinhumanity. There's nothing there yet, being brand new, but the charter notes "Largely mixed and hidden by the loud shouts of "If it bleeds, it leads!", there still exist good things in life. There are still people who will start a conversation with a perfect stranger without the fear they will attack them. There are still people who'll give up their seat on a bus or train for someone who needs it. There are still people organising to try and persue a positive cause. There are still people holding doors open, helping carry shopping, giving up their umberella to someone in the pouring rain, and trying to learn to improve themselves."

Ever wonder what you'd been thinking at the time? I just came across a file from 2001, with the single word "Noordlingers". I have no idea what that means, though it has a pleasantly Dutch ring to it.

You may not have encountered all these words in one headline before: "Nude wet meat soil bandit caught". Safe for work, though you may find your eyebrows being raised higher than you'd thought possible.

Genius. As found by dagoski, Post-Rapture Post will, following the Rapture, deliver your final messages to those left behind. The service is, naturally, payable in advance.

Anyone with a fondness for rats really ought not miss this inquisitive looking ratling.

I think this would fit in wonderfully at one of quentincoyote's furmeets.. Веркa Сердючка - А я смеюсь (Verka Serduchka - "I'm laughing").

Via freakylynx, some quite priceless warnings from Nintendo regarding things not to do with your Wii. Anyone hoping to use it to grow clover is, sadly, out of luck.

"With the advent of the renaissance, penises were now in three dimensions and posed extra challenges."

Wow. My domain just passed its tenth anniversary. What a very strange ten years that's been..
The clover is actually meant to feed the Pikmin ^.^

I've seen bits of a couple episodes of Yin Yang Yo, it didn't really catch my eye but could just mean I didn't catch enough of the good parts to get hooked.
Ahhhh! Okies. That did seem particularly random. ^_^ (And probably fully justified - we've all heard tales of rugrats attempting to feed VCRs..)

I'm really quite curious to see what YYY is like - maybe the lack of web presence reflects it just not being all that special. It's difficult to tell, of course - there's plenty of TV that never gets torrented (especially if not from the US, plus a few exceptions from the UK). Hey ho.. maybe I'll just have to wait until it sees a DVD release, and peek at it then.
It had some ideas that looked interesting but overall I felt a bit disappointed when watching it. Though, I have been known to at first dislike a program and then get thoroughly addicted to it after watching a few episodes ^.^;;;

Personally I'd prefer seeing torrents of Mr. Meaty, but that's not furry at all :P
I can imagine the animation style taking a bit of getting used to, though they seem to've done a remarkable job of concealing its genesis. (But won't someone please hurry up and give Bernard Derriman piles of money to keep turning out works of the quality of Everyone Else Has Had More Sex Than Me?)

Mr Meaty?

I'm a rabbit. You know what I'm thinking. ^_^

A couple more here :)
I love the SqueekyToys site. Can I show off a bit and tell you that the orca is a friend of mine? :)
Ooh. I'm guessing there are some tales to be told, but probably not here, or even to me. =:) Have you tried said suit out?

I wish I'd thought of something like that when money was coming in, but, so it goes - I only wound up making one major purchase, Hyzenthlay, a then newly-announced 17" 1.67GHz PowerBook G4. I'd intended to pick one up when I was in a position to do so, and was just about ready to place the order when the range got bumped slightly, taking the 17" model's display up from 1440x900 to 1680x1050.

And by a pleasant coincidence, I'll be having a phone interview on Monday for what would be quite a good position. That's a long way from landing the gig, of course, but it would be nice to have a little spare to put into such a project.. ^_^ Any idea what kind of cost such a commission would run? ISTR rapido mentioning a fairly hair-raising sum.. but what's money for, if not to be put to uses both practical and pleasurable? There aren't any prizes for being the one to die with the most, after all. ^_^
ke_alakai, rather. D'oh!
hehehehe As for tales and trying it on, I could try and make you all jealous, but the truth is along the lines of "I Wish!" :) I only know him via the net, but he's a nice guy :)

As for costs, well, into the thousands I believe. They certainly aren't cheap, but like you say, that's what it's for. I know I wouldn't hesitate if I had funds enough for such a thing.

I guess you'd be a rubber bunny?
Thankies muchly for the Limpidity print mention and for the online comic download sites (bookmarked for later reference)!

I'll make sure Moth gets the squeeky orca link ...
No problem. ^_^ I really like digital distribution for comics, and it's still something pretty much on the leading edge - I'm happy to help spread such word where good titles appear in such a manner. And of course, it's great to see SLG venturing that way - they've got considerable experience as publishers, and a fair few titles in their stable. (I need to check how many issues SK actually ran for. I did buy quite a few issues on paper at the time, but then moving got in the way again, and I just never quite got around to picking the series up again)

I wonder where one might obtain such costuming materials.. ^_^ As far as latex goes, I recall 4D (I think) were well known for being able to provide a good range of thicknesses and colors. Putting it together into a costume, though - ISTR one method is just gluing, using an appropriate adhesive. I think there are other methods, but sadly, I've very little experience with latexwear. Something I hope to remedy, with the application of a suitable budget. =:)

So I'm reading the "Nude Wet Meat Soil Bandit Caught" article and I come across this paragraph:

"Now, at this point, readers familiar with this type of crime will probably be asking themselves, 'hey, shouldn't there be teddy bears on plant stands as well?' You will be relieved to know that no fewer than three plant stands holding teddy bears were also discovered in the vicinity of the truck."

And I have no idea what they mean by "this type of crime".
Is this some weird Britishism?

It's simply such an utterly unique set of events that the journalist was playing off that with a bit of dry humor. Which is, perhaps, something of a British style. ^_^
Yes! That was my favorite part of a very memorable article!
Ne, how do you generate the FLV links?
Behold the magic of KeepVid. ^_^ There's also a Firefox plugin, I believe, that accomplishes much the same thing. I'm not sure if the latter can also handle "embedded" Flash, which would be rather cool - where the Flash included in the page is what plays the actual video, so the actual video URL remains concealed, as here. (Very good animation, but terribly sad)
I figure Noordlingers will mean Northlings.

Also, what domain do you speak of?
Ah, that sounds about right. I still wish I knew why I'd saved a file with just a single seemingly Dutch word, but El-ahrairah works in mysterious ways. ^_^

The domain is over here. I really need to clear off some disk space and put some new clips up - I've a little more rabbit footage that needs presentation, and there's a load of travel footage ripe for distilling into something a little more digestible than its current ten hours or so, spanning the Normandy and Belgian coastal regions, Paris, Singapore, Sydney, Singapore, Fuerteventura, and Kuala Lumpur.
Avenue Jew for the win :)
