Anthrocon 2015 meme (with announcement)
Edit, same day: My new US cell phone number is +1 610 203 1343. It should work, with unlimited text messaging, until I leave the country on the Tuesday after Anthrocon.

Note for Canadians: Unlike previous years, I don't have a balance on this number for International charges, so non-US numbers are unlikely to work.
Please use Twitter DM in lieu of texting. Sorry about the inconvenience!

Since convention memes are the only thing I post nowadays, have another one:

Going to Anthrocon this year? So am I! ^^

Before we begin, let me do a brief announcement:

Preamble
Just so everyone knows, this might actually be my last Anthrocon for a while. Sorry. :( I love this convention, but now that I've moved countries, I find that I have to invest many of my vacation days in visiting family and friends in the homeland. My increasing involvement in the European fandom, such as NordicFuzzCon, is consuming a lot of time and resources as well.

The bottom line is, this might be our last opportunity to meet before who-knows-when. If you want to see me, take the chance!


Now, on with the meme!

How are you getting there?
Road trip from Philadelphia with giza.

Which days will you be attending?
I'm in Pittsburgh from late Tuesday until mid Monday.

Where are you staying, and with whom?
First with Giza at the Westin, then with Natalie at the Omni.

How do you want to be addressed?
Jake in suit, or Ethan out of it. But either of those is A-OK at any time—I won't be offended if you mix them up. :)

Where/how can I find you?
On Wednesday, I'll do some volunteering. Other than that, I'll probably be running around a lot. Text my US phone number (to be posted at the top of this journal once I have it) if you want to get ahold of me.

Which events and panels will you attend?
Given:
Likely:
  • Fursuit friendly dance
  • Karaoke!
  • Famous Chicken mascot panels
  • International Anthropomorphic Research Project debriefing

Do you do requests/trades/commissions?
Sorry, but I'm really not an artist. :(

Can I talk to you?
Of course you can! Meeting furries is why I go to cons!

Can I take pictures with you?
Pretty "yes please" with a cherry on top!

Can I touch or hug you?
Jake <33 hugs! Ethan likes them too.
(In all cases, please maintain consensuality and proper personal hygiene.)

Can I hang out with you?
Yes—if you can keep up! I might run around a lot. :P
The best way to get me to stay is probably to strike up an interesting conversation. ;)

Do you go to parties?
I'm not a drinker, so I seldom go to room parties or similar.
That said, I am pretty social, so you'll probably find me milling around public con spaces in the evenings, whenever I'm not dining or attending an event.

Will you be suiting?
*Jake noddles*

What's your personality type?
Surprisingly outgoing! :D

What is the best way to reach you?
Texting my US cell phone is by far the best way to reach me, since I plan to buy unlimited texting for the duration of the con.
As soon as I have my new US number (which will be today or tomorrow), it will be posted at the beginning of this journal.

Text messages aside, Twitter DM is the second best means of contact, or placing a call in urgent situations. (Sending FA PMs might work too, but I am only likely to read those once a day or so.)

Have any other questions?
Anything else you wonder about? Feel free to post a question or a comment (here or on FA), send me an FA PM, or e-mail me! Dropping me a line on my US number, once I have it, is fine as well.


Wow, you read all the way to the bottom... *gives extra hugs* See you in Pittsburgh! ^^

NordicFuzzCon 2015 meme
Yes, I'll be at NordicFuzzCon again! ^^ Here are the customary details:

Flights, then public transportation.

Where are you staying?
At the convention hotel.

Which days will you be attending?
All days, including early arrival and late departure.

Who are you staying with?
I'm sharing a room with procyonid.

How do you want to be addressed?
Jake in suit, or Ethan out of it. But I won't be offended if you mix those up. :)

This is a working con, so I expect to be occupied for much of the time. Look for me in the fursuit lounge, or get a staff member to hail me on their radio if it's really urgent.

Which events and panels will you attend?
I'll be presenting a few panels, including the First Furry Con panel the and two panels on fursuit performance. Those aside, it all depends on how much time I can spare.

Do you do requests/trades/commissions?
Sorry, but I'm really not an artist. :(

Can I talk to you?
Of course you can! Meeting furries is why I go to cons!
It's best to do approach me when I'm not busy, though.

Can I take pictures with you?
Be my guest!

Can I touch or hug you?
Jake <33 hugs! Ethan likes them too.
(In all cases, please maintain consensuality and proper personal hygiene.)

That said, I am pretty social, so you'll probably find me milling around public con spaces in the evenings.

Will you be suiting?
If I get the chance to, yes! This has not always been possible at past NFCs due to how busy/tired I've been.

What's your personality type?
Surprisingly outgoing!

Have any other questions?
Anything else you wonder about? Feel free to post a question or a comment (here or on LJ), send me an FA PM, or e-mail me! Be aware, though, that I am very busy with con prep, so please forgive me if I do not reply.


See you soon! ^^

EF info
Hi all,

Yes, I'll be at Eurofurence this year, sharing a room with giza. I arrive on Wednesday 20th and leave on Monday 25th. For any other information, consult my previous "convention meme" journals. :)

If anyone wants to meet up during the convention, just let me know!

I plan to get a temporary German SIM for text messaging and Internet connectivity during the convention. One use case is texting me to arrange meetups or joint meals. ;) I'll update this journal with my new number as soon as it's operational.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

<3
- Ethan and Jake

AC 2013 meme – want to meet up?
For your convenience, here's my version of the Anthrocon meme, copy-pasted from last year with a few minor edits on top:

Are you going?
This will be my fifth year in a row attending AC. Of course I'll be there! :D

How are you getting there?
Road trip from Philadelphia with Joel Fox and Giza.

What hotel are you staying at?
I'll be at the Westin.

Which days will you be attending?
I'll arrive Tuesday night, and leave some time on Monday.

Who are you staying with?
I'm rooming with Joel Fox, Vallhund, and Jennzies.

How do you want to be addressed?
Jake in suit, or Ethan out of it. But you can use whatever works for you.
I've been known to respond to Stag, Staghorn, or "hey you!", also.

Where/how can I find you?
I'll do my trademark "running around routine!" XD

On Wednesday, I'll likely do some volunteering. Other than that, I don't plan to stay in one spot during the con, a few panels aside.

Your best bet to get in touch will be to text my American number, once I have one.
I'll update this journal when I have been "enumerated" (that is, acquired a number :) .

Are there any panels you might be attending?
I've found this year's digital schedule offerings hard to use, so I don't have a canonical list yet.

The fursuit photo world record attempt is a given, as is the parade, and Yappy's fursuit friendly dance set. I'll also be at Opening Ceremonies, the Look Left concert, Matthew Ebel (halioffirpine)'s concert, and unclekage's story hour.

I will likely attend more panels than these, but this is what I know so far.

Do you do requests/trades/commissions?
Sorry, but I'm not an artist. :(

What is your main purpose for attending?
Meeting interesting people (friends old and new), and fursuiting.

Can I talk to you?
Who could possibly go to a furry con and answer "no" to this? Of course you can! :D

Can I take pictures with you?
Yes please!

Can I touch or hug you?
Jake <33 hugs! Ethan likes them too.
(In all cases, please maintain consensuality and proper personal hygiene.)

Can I hang out with you?
If you can keep up! I might run around a lot. The best way to get me to stay is probably to strike up an interesting conversation. ;)

Do you go to parties?
I'm not a drinker, but I love to be social. I thus tend to mill around the con space in the evenings and maybe go to a few dances, rather than attend room parties.

Will you be suiting?
Jake says "yes!" from his suitcase. :P

What is the best way to reach you?
Texting my cell phone works best. Nothing else comes close. (I just have to get a US SIM card first. :)

Here's what to do if you want to keep in touch:
PM or e-mail me your furry name and cell phone number, right now. I'll write it down and add it to my phonebook.

Once I have my new US number, I'll text it to you. After that, you can spam away, since I always go for unlimited texting during cons.

Have any other questions?
If there's anything else you wonder about, just pose your question in the comments (here or on LJ), send me an FA PM, or e-mail me!

What if I want to meet up with you?
What? You want to see me? I'm flattered!

In this case, just go ahead and note me/comment/otherwise drop me a line, and we can see if we can figure out something that works. :)


See you there, fuzzies! *hugs everyone* Have fun and be safe!

NordicFuzzCon 2013 meme
Questions regarding my presence at NordicFuzzCon 2013 are answered below:

Are you going to NFC?
I'd better; I'm the head of events! o.O

How are you getting there?
Public transportation.

Where are you staying?
At the convention hotel.

Which days will you be attending?
All days. I also have early arrival and late departure.

Who are you staying with?
I'm sharing a room with Pinky.

How do you want to be addressed?
Jake in suit, or Ethan out of it. But I won't be offended if you mix those up.

Where/how can I find you?
Unlike all my previous convention appearances, this is a working con, so I expect to be occupied most of the time.

If you need me for something con-related, either approach me or ask in ConOps.
If you want me for an idle chat, just grab me some time when I'm not busy. :)

Which events and panels will you attend?
I'm presenting a few panels this con. Obviously, I'll be at those. XD

Being the head of events, I'll additionally serve as many other events as I can, as well, helping with setup and trying to make sure that everything runs smoothly.

Do you do requests/trades/commissions?
I hate to disappoint anyone, but I'm really not an artist.

Can I talk to you?
Who could possibly go to a furry con and answer "no" to this? Of course you can! Meeting furries is why I go to cons!
It's best to do it when I'm not busy, though.

Can I take pictures with you?
Gladly!

Can I touch or hug you?
Jake <33 hugs! Ethan likes them too.
(In all cases, please maintain consensuality and proper personal hygiene.)

Can I hang out with you?
In principle, yes, but I might run around a lot.
The best way to get me to stay is probably to strike up an interesting conversation. ;)

Do you go to parties?
I'm not a drinker, but I love being social. Hence I tend to mill around public con spaces in the evenings and go to dances, rather than chill with just a few people at some room party.

Will you be suiting?
If I get the chance to, yes. Probably in the fursuit group photo and parade, and during the Friday night dance.

What's your personality type?
Surprisingly outgoing!

Have any other questions?
If there's anything else you wonder about, feel free to post a question or a comment (here or on LJ), send me an FA PM, or e-mail me! Be aware, though, that I am very busy with con prep, and please forgive me if I do not reply.


I'm delighted that so many of my friends are going, and hope you all will have a great time. ^^ See you soon!

AC 2012 meme – want to meet up?
Edit 2012-06-08: Ladies and gentlefurs, the information you've all been waiting for:
My new US number is *drumroll* +1 267 629 0352. Texting is preferred over talk, as I've got unlimited amounts of the former.

My new number will be valid until the evening of the Tuesday after Anthrocon.

Edit II: As of 2012-06-19, the number has expired. Please use e-mail or other means of contact from now on.

Yes, I'll be at Anthrocon this year as well. :)

For your convenience, here's my version of the AC meme:

How are you getting there?

The traditional road trip from Philadelphia with physicsfox (more active as joelfox on FA) and giza.

What hotel are you staying at?

I'll be at the Westin.

Which days will you be attending?

I'll arrive late Tuesday night, and leave some time Monday.

Who are you staying with?

I'm rooming with physicsfox (joelfox), dracojeff, and vir-no-vigoratus.

How do you want to be addressed?

Jake in suit, or Ethan out of it. But I'm not offended if you mix those up. :)
Stag, Staghorn, or "hey you!" tend to work, too.

Where/how can I find you?

You'll find me running around? XD

On Wednesday, I'll probably do a bit of volunteering, and there are some panels I am considering for the other days. Other than that, I don't plan to stay in one spot during the con, so your best bet is to text my cell phone. (How to obtain my new number is detailed further down.)

Are there any panels you might be attending?

I've prepared a shortlist at sched.org of panels that interest me. I will probably go to a few of these, but by no means all.

Do you do requests/trades/commissions?

I'm not an artist. Sorry everyone... :(

What is your main purpose for attending?

Meeting interesting people (friends old and new), and fursuiting.

Can I talk to you?

Who could possibly go to a furry con and answer "no" to this? Of course you can! :D

Can I take pictures with you?

Yes please! *poses*

Can I touch or hug you?

Jake <33 hugs! Ethan likes them too. (In all cases, please maintain consensuality and proper personal hygiene.)

Can I hang out with you?

If you can keep up! I might run around a lot. The best way to get me to stay is probably to strike up an interesting conversation. ;)

Do you go to parties?

I'm not a drinker, but I love to be social. I thus tend to mill around the con space in the evenings and go to dances, rather than attend room parties.

Will you be suiting?

Very yes! ^^

What is the best way to reach you?

Texting, by far! ...once I get my new US SIM card, that is. XD

Here's what to do: PM or e-mail me your furry name and cell phone, right now. I'll write it down and take it with me on my trip. Once I get to the states, I'll text you my new number. After that, you can spam away, since I always go for unlimited texting during cons.
Edit 2012-06-08: As stated earlier, my new US number is +1 267 629 0352.

Have any other questions?

If there's anything else you wonder about, just pose your question in the comments (here or on LJ), send me an FA PM, or e-mail me!

What if I want to meet up with you?

I don't have enough time to reach out and pre-arrange at-con meetings with old friends and interesting folks like I did in previous years. However, I still love meeting people!

If, by any chance, you specifically want to see me at the convention, just go ahead and note me/comment/otherwise drop me a line! I would be honoured by any expression of interest, and we can see if we can figure out something that works. :)


See you there, fuzzies! *hugs all around* Have fun and be safe!

Fursuit video goes deep
Having followed the fandom for quite some time, I've seen many mascot and fursuit videos. Along the way, I've come across some great ones: videos that were funny, adorable, exciting, spectacular, cool, unusual, or otherwise entertaining.

Very rarely, however, would I use the phrase "thought-provoking" to describe a costumed character video. This clip is the brilliant, shining exception:
Pro Infirmis Get closer

I realize this is quite old and that many of you probably have seen it already, but if you haven't, you really should—even my non-furry friends like it!

Enjoy! And if you have any other deep or thought-provoking fursuit videos, feel free to share! ^^

9/11 + 10
I'm surprised I haven't seen more of these, but this is my recollection:


Ten years ago today I went into a movie theater, and came back out to a different world. It was eerily palpable how everything had somehow shifted. Everyone felt it. The now had turned into a perpetual after, in which we still live.

This world has lost its innocence more times than anyone can count. Ten years ago, it did so again. Thousands of lives were lost on that day, but the casualties extend far beyond that: this place has never been the same since.

What's your story?
