last night I dreamt that Teenage Engineering hired me purely based on the boldness of my cover letter in which I said that I hate their products
turns out that I got the next two sunday evenings off so if you're local and want to play a card game prototype ;;;;;;;;)
What is postfurry? At the very core, it's a way of approaching what identity means.
Furry has been all about answering the question "what if people can also be animals?"
Postfurry says "okay, we can go even further than that. What if we claim authorial control over every aspect of identity? We're animal-people sure, but that's only a starting point. If the poststructuralists are right and all meaning is negotiable, let's go exploring and write some meanings of our own."

There's this weird tendency in American culture that either A) The USSR was a cultural wasteland kept under the thumb of its government or B) Any cultural product of the USSR worth anything had to be vaguely Solzhenitsyn shaped.
I'm really not interested in either of those things. I wanna know about its disposable, media commodities. The sort of stuff that informed Russian civil life, that was fun, or entertaining, or written off as mass entertainment.
