and here's what i'm learning from it:

- there is an enormous amount of furry art on the internet.
  either that or it receives precedence on search engines
  due to heavy link backslapping.

  it's paying its toll on my psyche and i'm suspicious of
  all of my friends, loved ones.  do they have a secret
  animal persona?  i'll be talking to someone and my
  brain does surprisingly textured real-time transformations
  of them into rodents, panthers, even shrimp.

  i literally have to slap myself.  i am not a furry!  maybe
  a crustacy, but not a furry!  i need a shell on that hot
  animal love!

- yes there are plenty of overtly funny things to see on the
  interweb.  like this.  but it is truly thrilling to find
  the subtle and the timeless.

  well, yeah, the clown's timeless, too, I guess.

- the goal is not to be funny.  i think there is a lot to
  lol over, but it seems more worthwhile to juxtapose a
  number of reactions against each other.  yet, keep a
  certain theme within a 24hr block.

  what blows my mind is that each of these images is backed
  up by a human who took the time to draw the picture, make
  the puppets, glue the cereal, effect the shot, and put it
  on the web. let that represent!

  of course, in their original context, some of these make
  sense but-- take them out of their cozy environment--
  toss them in the troff where all things are equal--
  it starts to feel like an oceanic view, built from
  these individual servings of sight.
- love the vintage.
