drhoz remembered that the creator of that music video I pointed out last time, I Lived on the Moon, is also responsible for a wonderfully odd little short, Krapooyo. Perfectly work safe, though people will wonder what you're watching..

On the much fluffier side of cuteness, though, marko_the_rat recently came upon a new Optus ad featuring some wonderful raccoons - check it out! (29s, 3.7MB. There's no audio, but that doesn't detract from the adorability. ^_^ The schtick is they're spying on people to find out what they really want from a telco)

relee might want to make time for this clip that ristin found.. someone waking up to find they're a teddy bear. ^_^ (His purple bunny is rather sweet as well, though I'm not sure about that outfit)

Churches ad hoc is an amusingly irreverent collection of photos and captions. Recommended to those for whom a Stephen Fry alarm clock would be a welcome gift.

A look at the ongoing troubles of the US subprime and Alt A mortgage markets, and the knock-on effects. "The big chill gripping global credit markets has caused 46 leveraged financing deals around the world to be pulled since June 22, representing more than $60 billion in funding that companies had planned for mergers and acquisitions. The number of deals pulled last year: zero." "According to people who took part in the conference call, Jochen Sanio, head of Germany's financial regulator, is said to have warned of the worst banking crisis since 1931."

If you're in need of more hare in your life, try dailybunny. ^_^

Inch resting. There's a new LJ directory search, currently available to plus/paid/perm members. (If you can't reach it, this is what it looks like)

Was it tilton who's especially fond of fine pens? Pharyngula recently pointed out a quite gorgeously eccentric example: Jules, designed after a squid. ("Available in solid sterling silver, solid 18k gold, and solid platinum". Funnily enough, no prices are listed)

And now for something completely different: Gus Visser and His Singing Duck (1m32s, 5.2MB).


But that's not all! Select audio channel two for commentary by Donald Crafton, Chairman of the Department of Film, Television, and Theatre at the University of Notre Dame.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Ohh, that! I recall a certain dino mentioning that, but I never quite got around to subscribing to it. Perhaps I should remedy that. ^_^;

Will you be posting some of your own by the end of the year, mayhaps?
Some of my own? I don't even own a Fursuit. ^.^;;

I didn't post much while the list owner was alive, and the group is struggling to survive his passing.
Ah, that's something you must remedy, in that case. ^_^ Making one isn't as gargantuan a challenge - or as expensive - as one might think, especially if you're contemplating something toony. And it is every bit as much fun as it looks..

Eep! That's unfortunate to hear, on both counts. I wish I had something to contribute.. ah well, all in the fullness of time. Next summer, hopefully.
Ahh, I actually have a few costume bits, but I feel uncomfortable wearing them around my parents, and they're rather restricting for the things I do normally; mostly playing video games. I don't think I could enjoy a fursuit without someone else to be with while wearing it, and I'm quite sadly alone.
Ah, true. Much as I love being Red, it's a little impractical to be online that way, given the somewhat restrained vision, and the inability of trackpads to see a gloved hand. The latter I could perhaps fix with a drop of silver (as in the metal, not just the color) paint, to form enough conduction between me and the pad. The vision.. hm. With lipstick video cameras and viewfinder LCDs as cheap as they are now, maybe I could try that.. best, of course, would be a mask design, as patch_bunny uses, so the eyes have completely unrestricted field of vision, other than the (adorable lapine) muzzle.

Still, maybe you'd consider a little furred photo shoot? ^_^
You should. ^^ The group isn't very active, but it's got some nice pictures and stuff. ^_^
I think I shall. First, though, secondary caffeination. (The primary's already underway - an own brand "stimulation drink". Nice stuff - very convenient for times when I'm not really in the mood for coffee, or want assistance getting to the point where I can safely make some =:)

Any more video along those lines, too? Con photos are one thing, but video lets a fur come to life - not to mention a setting like that permits them to be more.. expressive. ^_^
I'm not sure if there's more videos; if there are, I don't think I've seen them, but I'm not good at remembering these things. c.c
Hm! Tried locating the group a short while ago, and it doesn't seem to be there - perhaps it's seen those public information films on how not to be seen?

But I did get around to actually watching the teddy bear clip, or most of it. Oh my. Buttons not merely pushed, but flattened. ^_^
Hmm. Try http://groups.yahoo.com/group/trappedinourfursuits/ ? That works for me. (BTW, there's also a backup group used for extra storage space at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/trappedinourfurrysuits/ ).

*chuckles* Good to hear you enjoyed the clip, though. ^^
Wow.. 484 members? And I was thinking it'd be some subgenre niche along the lines of cybernetic transformations.. ^_^ (Don't suppose you know of anywhere with such stories? About the only places that I know of are the LTBSA, very rarely, and the MC Stories Archive, where they're somewhat less scarce)

Most Yahoo groups seem to have a lot of members - I'm never quite sure why, though, and 99% aren't ever active, either. But there's a bunch of pictures and stuff, at least. ^^

As for stories... sorry, no, no idea. I've heard the term "clunky" (and "clunkies") as an analogue of "furry" for people who're into robots, so Googling for that might yield interesting things, but I've never really looked into that myself..
