Hey, akira114, are you out there? Can anyone else who knows him confirm he's still alive and squirming? [Edit: all clear! A great relief, even if there remains some geographical repositioning to be accomplished]

I'm curious - what made you choose your species? Is it a life-long affinity, or something more blown across by the winds of fate? If you've changed species, do you know why that happened?

otter3 noticed the latest in SCEA's PixelJunk series, Eden. Very odd, very interesting looking; reminiscent of Loco Roco as if designed by Drum Machine's creator in a mellow mood. I may yet have to put a PS3 on the wishlist.

Ooh, I may have to pick up a few shirts - Rabbit Valley's currently running an offer via FA for $5 delivery on orders over $50. (Shirts can't be digitally delivered, whilst comics can, so I don't mind ordering the former, especially when the Coyote River, FurAffinity: United, and Obey the Ferrox ones are just calling out for good homes) You'll have to visit FA to find out the coupon code, though. *grin* (On which theme, does anyone have recommendations for furcon shirts? ISTR MFM having some good designs, but I can't find anywhere on their site to buy previous ones)

Tired of the 1998-style "portal" that the Dilbert site recently transmogrified into? Here's the fast version, crisp, crunchy, and almost Googlian in simplicity.

And the music? Over here - and there's much more where that came from. ^_^
 
 
 
 
 
 
What made me choose my species. Hummmm.

Well, I started off as a dragon. "Dunkelzahn" to be precise? I totally ripped off the character from Shadowrun and had no shame about it. Then, around 96 or 97, I lost my dunkelzahn hotmail address. Seems some folks didn't like an email I sent and got it killed. I was pretty upset about that, since I had a few Abe Groter originals in there, but what can you do?

Anyway, I decided I needed a new persona, and the otter stood out. But I wanted to be unique, so as to stand out from the other otters I'd seen. I chose white fur, with blue lighning bolt patterns. Then I figured, river/sea otter crossbreed.

I gave him a backstory that was more like a small novella and began to live that novella out. And the funny thing is, the more I played him, the more like him I became. I guess I liked the way people reacted to him.

What I never really understoon until a few months ago, is that I wasn't becoming more like him, I was shedding the crap the kept me from being the good, upstanding person that I envisioned him to be. It's been a bumpy road though.

Currently, however, I'm exploring bats as a alter-ego. I rather like bats, of all shapes, sizes and species.

I also like bunnies. Well, lemme be honest, I absolutely adore bunnies. Big, lovely feet...fluffy tail, long floppy ears...*melt*.

What's odd, however, is that I don't feel any kinship with them. I just find them to be exceptionally beautiful, cute, loving and worthy of worship. Guess I don't feel worthy enough to be one, though.
