My plans:  :hmm  2020:  :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Our plans for 2020 were as amazing as Optimus Prime. But then 2020 came like Hot Rod.

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 05:50 PM)

Indeed....

Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

@  Rycochet : (11 July 2020 - 01:10 PM)

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 07:37 AM)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 July 2020 - 09:56 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

All this over someone's username lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

@  Bass X0 : (04 July 2020 - 02:56 PM)

"If I had sarcasm-powered legs, I'd do a happy dance...!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

Robin Hood, Fox McCloud... What's-his-face from Zootopia is a fox too... you know, I'm starting to sense a pattern here.

 

There's Starwolf slashfics, but I think that comes after.  Maybe certain Digimon?  There's the fire starter from Pokemon Sun/Moon, but that's fairly recent.

 

*edit* Only others I can come up with are Usagi Yojimo and the Turtles, Road Rovers, SWAT Kats, and Dinosaucers, though that one's kind of obscure. Does Gargoyles count?

You know, I'm trying to come up with male pop culture furry icons, but it's a little hard.  Like... at least in the US, it's less common to portray male anthro figures as... fully featured? as female ones.  Like, they're male by default, until they get ****.

That's going to go for stylizations of people shapes in general though. That whole presumed male audience and all. Male is treated as default and female is treated as the marked condition, and half of the time, the first thing they want you to know about the female character is that she's sexy. 

 

Cartoon characters in general, robots, and anything you can add eyelashes to.

Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

I suspect there's at least some guys who obsess over hyper feminine women because those guys think they'll "Turn Gay" if they feel an attraction to a woman whose features are more androgynous.

Copper gets it.

Personally, I can't think of a male anthro char I liked for the animal aspect alone. It's always more of a personality thing. Animated human men didn't start feeling sexy to me until anime.

I'm not sure anyone is ever 'turned into a furry'.  No more than anyone is 'turned into a tea drinker'.

 

It's something that lurks deep in your mind until one day Maid Marian/Lola Bunny/Minerva Mink/Sally Acorn/whoever comes on screen and it all just clicks.

 

Does Gargoyles count?

Hmmm... these two post make me stop and think over my love of characters with bat wings/claws/glowing eyes...

On that note, unless there's some other example I forgot in the early months before I hit consciousness, I remember the first time I saw any defined male musculature and became aware that pecs exist. My first example.

Furry is a big tent and there is no one entrance to it, some were inspired by anthro cartoons old and new, Disney, warner bros, Biker Mice from Mars even, others by anime, videogames like Sonic, Sly Cooper and so on, there are even those of us who came out of left field from Beatrix Potter and Wind in the willows.

I don't think there is one universal truth how we all became furries, ask a dozen furries, you'll get a dozen stories, but we all stay for the community, supportive, creative, silly people, it's great.

Sonic kind of transcends furry to be every fetish you can think of.

People assume that fetish is a strict progression of cause to effect, but, actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly... spanky-wanky... stuff.

Ask a dozen furries, get a dozen different answers, some will say so others will say not. I think if you're not part of a group it's always best to err on the side of caution and avoid uncharitable ways of describing it like fetish out of politeness.

I really dislike the misuse of the word "fetish" to mean "kink". I think you could say that where furry is sexual it's a kink or set of kinks, but then you'd have to account for the 70% of the time that it isn't explicitly sexual, which itself has a lot of influence on how the sexy parts manifest themselves. 

 

For comparison, I don't think of BDSM fans as universally, by necessity, being fans and enthusiasts of rope and leather craft. Furry would be the equivalent of having a rope and leather fandom with a strong BDSM contingent.
