What Bad Wolf means:

Wolf At The Door: A Destroyer?

There's a historical/mythological current of the wolf lurking outside our normal world, waiting to pounce at fatal weakness, consuming and destroying totally.

The supreme consumer? A force of destruction? Or a sign of rebirth at the ebbing of life?

Wolf At The Door: A Predator

The Bad Wolf is also seen as preying on the vulnerable, signalling the end of innocence.

But the Bad Wolves can also be the bringers of dangerous knowledge of how the world really is, rather than just how we perceive it.

Perhaps the Bad Wolf is either an innocent guarding a dangerous secret, or someone who has been manipulating events from behind the scenes without us even realising.

The shooting of more than 23,000 rabbits in New Zealand during a charity hunting event held over the Easter vacation weekend has drawn fire from animal welfare campaigners.

While organizers of the annual Great Easter Bunny Hunt, held across the southern region of New Zealand’s South Island, argued the event was ridding farmland of an introduced, rampant pest species, welfare group Safe saw things differently, the Sunday Star-Times reported.

Safe director Hans Kriek said the event promoted the killing of animals in a “party atmosphere.”

“It’s seen as a party atmosphere, sending people out as inexperienced hunters blasting away at animals,” he said. “The ones they kill are one thing, the ones they injure are another.”

Hunt spokesman Dave Ramsay said the rabbit problem was at its worst in the region for 20 years, and the annual event raised thousands for local charities.

In total 47 teams — with 12 shooters each — from all over New Zealand took part, Ramsay told The Otago Daily Times.

Although the event only carries total prize money of NZ$ 3,500 (US$ 2,800), the most sought-after prize was the trophy for the team which shoots the greatest number of rabbits, he said.

PALMETTO, Fla. (AP) — A Tampa-area woman found an unwelcome weekend guest in her bathroom – a 7-foot alligator.

Alexis Dunbar says she screamed and the alligator hissed when she found it inside the bathroom of her home Saturday afternoon. Her boyfriend propped a small table by the bathroom to keep the gator inside until an officer from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission showed up to take him away.

Dunbar believes the alligator used a doggie door on the back porch to get inside the house. Dunbar lives in Palmetto, which is south of St. Petersburg.

Spring is mating season for alligators and wildlife officials urge people to be extremely cautious, especially around water.

Slammed again by Rock 100.5

Mirrored from Furry News Network.

Easter weekend in Atlanta is Frolicon Weekend.  Frolicon is an alternative convention which celebrates BDSM and Kink along with Sci-Fi and Fantasy.

Over the past few years, they have been very friendly with the Atlanta Furry community, and have offered a panel where well respected members of the Atlanta Furry community come and explain what furry is.  During those panels, it is made clear that while some people bring a fetish aspect to Furry, that it is not all about sex.

Well, the “Regular Guys” did it again. Just like with their “Undercover” bit on Furry Weekend Atlanta, they had one of their people “Seabaz” go to the convention where he recorded audio and took photographs. During the replay of this, it pointed out that the same furries that were pissed at them for breaking in to Furry Weekend Atlanta were hosting the Furry Panel at Frolicon.

Encyclopedia Dramatica Gone For Good

Mirrored from Furry News Network.

 


Encyclopedia Dramatica, bane of all Furries, is no more forever, says primary contributor Sherrod DeGrippo.

ED was not necessarily an unbiased or even readable source of information, but it also distilled the culture surrounding memes and internet humor in all its unapologetic, hateful, dramatic, anti-everything glory. (As it was near impossible to single out the site as being offensive to a single group, as it made horrific fun of everyone from gay people, black people, old people, emo people, Jewish people,  fat people and Furries equally- it still was the target of some banhammers, big government ones, too.)

The site that formerly cataloged the wealth of drama and attention whores on the internet now redirects to a sanitized, entirely different site called OhInternet. DeGrippo cites an impetus to move away from the racism, anti-Semitism, homophobia and offensive graphic pornography that defined the old site:

DeGrippo says that the biggest difference between OhInternet and Dramatica is that the new site has moved towards “a more toned down content style and a streamlined design: Shock for shock’s sake is old at this point and we’re looking forward to the future and how things are evolving … when you put user experience first, the language becomes highly important and that’s what we’ve done.”

With a more toned down, work safe site, OhInternet is now open for monetization – generating advertising revenue through programs ED would have previously been barred from.  Advertisers often have strict rules regulating where their advertisements can appear.  With the hate that ED was known for, no advertiser would have touched the site.

ED’s fanbase doesn’t seem to be easily converting to the newer, friendlier version of ED, and Geekosystem reports that OhInternet’s Facebook page was littered with offensive, pornographic comments in response to the new site. Will you be sad to see the horribly offensive site go, or did you have secret lulz when browsing its salacious pages?

Several fans of ED have gotten a copy of the backup and are trying to revive the site at Encyclopediadramatica.ch.  There are several other ‘mirror’ sites going up with the same backup. It is our hope that DeGrippo will opt to take action to keep these sites offline.

[EDIT: Encyclopedia Dramatica as owned and run by Sherrod DeGrippo is gone. As stated above, there are groups trying to bring versions back. I seriously doubt they will be able to maintain these copies for any significant time. ED went through many legal battles and faced large hosting bills each month. It is doubtful anyone really wants shoulder the legal and financial responsibility for a true rebirth of the site. The LULz are fun when you are not the one trying to pay the bills that they generate.

The idententity of the individual in question has been posted at this blog "There Is No Joseph Evers" and there are several DOX sites that have sprang up.  This is NOT the same ED that resided at encyclopediadramatica.com - it is a copy, and an incomplete one at that.]

I Blame Hannah Barbera

Mirrored from Furry News Network.

Growing up in the 70′s, there were lots of interesting things on television.  One program I remember above all others was the Banana Splits show.  This was designed by Sid & Marty Kroft and was produced and distributed by Hannah Barbera.

This is the reason I fell in love with the with Fursuits.  I wanted to have as much fun as these guys did!

Let me introduce you to the Banana Splits! The main characters were Fleegle, a beagle; Bingo, a gorilla; Drooper, a lion, and Snorky (called “Snork” in the theme song lyrics), an elephant. Fleegle would assume the role as leader of the Banana Splits and preside at club meetings. The characters were played by actors in fleecy costumes similar to later Sid and Marty Krofft characters such as H.R. Pufnstuf. They all spoke in English (Drooper with a Southern drawl), except for Snorky who “spoke” in honking noises.

The Tra-La-La song is still as infectious today as it was in 1967.

We knew something was fishy when Bucktown Tiger posted a video claiming he was assaulted by a couple of “unknown” furs while at Furry Fiesta. Seems the details of the assault never made it to twitter that weekend, which, even at a convention, would be extremely unusual for Bucktown.

The footage was obviously staged… Vote for it at FAILBLOG!!

And today, we find this… Enjoy!

Disney Nature’s African Cats

Mirrored from Furry News Network.

The sight of magnificent beasts roaming the savannahs of Kenya stirs the blood, and speaking of blood, plenty is shed in this eye popping documentary. It is the latest in a string of recent animals-in-nature films, each of which is unique and gripping in its own way.
African Cats is about the tooth and claw existence of two cat prides struggling to exist in a patch of land on either side of a dangerous, crocodile infested river.
The crocodiles are crucial elements in the unfolding of this story of war and domination. With the rival groups – cheetahs and lions – staring each other down from opposite edges of the water, we know only one thing stops them from tearing each other apart – the crocodiles just under the surface. The cats have a healthy respect for these silent menaces that could crack a lion in two with its jaws.
And so things go until the height of summer when the river water evaporates and it’s easy for a lion crossing the river to see if a crocodile lurks. And then the pride leaders can have at it to decide who will be the victor and who will be forced by the immutable laws of nature to slink away forever, leaving behind his lionesses, his cubs and his stature.
The violence that permeates the wild animals’ lives is unimaginable; we know they eat other animals to live, sometimes their own species, but seeing it up close, repeatedly, with all kinds of diverse life forms on the menu, is something else. It is almost too intense, but it’s what happens and that’s all there is to that. It’s real, insofar as documentaries are real.

It took them two weeks, but deputies in Oklahoma City finally got their squirrel. The furry fugitive chewed through wires in several patrol cars, earning the nickname Chewy. The department announced Chewy’s capture in a tweet.
