LBs: I dislike “egg hatching” rhetoric as much as the next NB person, but as a longtime furry: if you’re an AMAB music artist with intense anxiety who hides the bottom of your face in music videos, and you use your Hot Young Producer Cache to create a cute, plucky femme anthro princess fursona to be the face of your brand and become synonymous with your own name,
the odds have gotta be more than ZERO, right
@irisjaycomics I mean shit, people were -all over- the idea of virtual pop stars/idols in the late '90s and early '00s? I'm more surprised this has only really started becoming a real thing relatively recently, ahaha
@Thaminga i think it's just taken a grip for the tech to catch up and for people to start seeing it as an actual aesthetic and lucrative opportunity instead of just a novelty
@irisjaycomics definitely, CGI today is *miles* ahead of where it was 20 years ago, doubly so when we're talking about stuff available to people who aren't running big studios and shit
@Thaminga YEAH. the bleeding edge has moved so far forward that you can comfortably reside pretty far behind it and still make stuff that looks visually impressive
@irisjaycomics one day soon there’s gonna be a pop star and like a few years into her career we’re gonna find out she’s a replicant and like literally no one will care
@irisjaycomics yeah I don't like speculating about people's gender / transness
And also I get some pretty heavy vibes from that interview (a girl character as a safe place to exist?) and from using that song to discuss having blunted emotional state outside of romantic involvement
@AzureHusky oh 100% absolutely
i mean, not as a furry, this is making me go 😳
i think someone needs to tell Cashmere Cat that they can just BE a catgirl if they want
@tcql i feel like a lot of artists would benefit from this information, tbh
@irisjaycomics I missed whatever this is in reference to and you have me incredibly curious.
@irisjaycomics awesome, thanks.
