2:35PM - Anthro cultural creation!
I think many of my friends know how extreme I am in support of copyright when it comes to furry artists. I have vehemently stood up to "DNP list" sites like fchan that require an artist to gain their special, specific permission to have distribution control back over their own work instead of honoring the artist's original copyright.
Considering that, trust that I am fully confident from Tim Albee himself, creator of Kaze: Ghost Warrior, that the upload to YouTube is fully authorized.
Kaze: Ghost Warrior is a "proof of concept" CGI animation by Tim Albee. He made this 22-minute work (roughly the running time of a half hour show without commercials) himself -- completely by himself -- alone while living in Alaska, with a net investment of below $5,000 in computer hardware and software. He also has a book showing exactly how he did it, and he wants very much for others to follow in his footsteps to make their own animations and eliminate the near exclusive dominion Hollywood has on making movies. While he proved that one person can go it alone and do this, Tim encourages people to group up with talent to bring their own dreams to the screen.
Kaze is an anthropomorphic tiger warrior who returns from the dead to exact some justice of his homeland many years after its beloved royal family was slain and the land taken over by some who are drunk with power. "Ghost Warrior" is intended as the pilot of many episodes of a series of similar-length animations (the second of which is in progress along with an enhanced remake of Ghost Warrior), as well as feature films (which should go into full swing production in 2009).
The original release of Kaze: Ghost Warrior is available for free -- as I said, with the creator's authorization -- on YouTube in three parts:

Seems the group is one year old today. Why don't we ever create some culture here, anyway?

I'm not prone to introductions when I join communities, but my delight at finding out there seemed to be a more adequate label for my skewed paradigm made me giggle with glee. Yeah. So here I am, and here are some manifestos on various issues, mostly to do with authenticity, meaning, and the self, as they seem to be the concepts I continuously circle around.

10:12AM - Not an introduction
So, there is a group for us!
Now, to post something interesting from my head (which as a Myers-Briggs iNtuitive Feeler sort isn't always easy):
1. I once postulated that the only lasting ideals in the universe were Love and Magick.
2. There are four basic types of actions available: proaction, action, reaction, and inaction; all carry consequences.
For an early Sunday morning, I think I did OK.

5:32AM - Reincarnation post
As promised, here is the link to my posting last year on reincarnation. It is long enough that I didn't want to repost the whole thing here. I suggest though that any comments be attached here for current discussion.

7:33AM - New proposals
In addition to the cookie proposal,we should have some ideas of what heaven is supposed to be like.
To me its horses of all shapes,sizes,anthro and non anthro and of course alot of mind boggling good sex........for after all whats a heaven with no horses having lots of sex?
And thats not to say that there arent lots of other species in heaven,because there is,because even the horses need servants. lol
When you die from earth you are given an eternal body,but its not nessesarly a human body but is measured by things like your service to the supreme power.......and then from that point yur eternal body can be anything imiganable withen the animal or non animal rhelm.
And back to the pointy hat thing........the size of yur hat should be in relitive size to your penis,so please disclose a pic before you can recieve your pointy hat.
Any other input or suggestions?

12:37PM - Here ya go
For those who are interested I would like you to read this and tell me yur input on it.
Taken from Ecclesiastes 3 of the message translation.
16.I took another good look at what's going on: The very place of judgment--corrupt! 17.The place of righteousness--corrupt! I said to myself, "God will judge righteous and wicked." There's a right time for every thing, every deed--and there's no getting around it. 18.I said to myself regarding the human race, "God's testing the lot of us, showing us up as nothing but animals."
19.Humans and animals come to the same end--humans die, animals die. We all breathe the same air. So there's really no advantage in being human. None. Everything's smoke. 20.We all end up in the same place--we all came from dust, we all end up as dust. 21.Nobody knows for sure that the human spirit rises to heaven or that the animal spirit sinks into the earth. 22.So I made up my mind that there's nothing better for us men and women than to have a good time in whatever we do--that's our lot. Who knows if there's anything else to life?
10:58AM - As usual
What does the Cultural Creator icon symbolize? (Choose all that you think apply)
6:51AM - Welcome, Creatives!
We have nothing to lose but our sense of humor. If you came out as a "Cultural Creative" on on this quiz, join us in a new community devoted to the subject: culturalcreator.
Why not? Everyone else has a special community, now we have one too. We can discuss matters of precedence, who gets to wear which color, and who has the tallest pointy hat. Of course, the forum is also open to real issues of spirituality, eclecticism, and dealing with ideas that are not concrete while living in a materialistic culture.
No fundamentalism allowed unless it is FUN. Sense of humor required, but serious ideas are welcome.

Now where did I put that Fuller Brush catalog?
