Back home from Furry Fiesta

Furry Fiesta was fun!

Highlights:
Games of Werewolf that got progressively crazier, with the addition of weird characters such as the Werehamster, the Weregerbil, the Fool and the Devil.
"Titanic: The Animated Movie". Yes, it exists. Fortunately, it was MSTed by Shockwave and Corsi. A movie that takes place on the Titanic should NOT have a rapping dog. Fortunately, we were spared the 12-minute credit sequence.
Lunch at Tokyo One with Draconis, Chakawolf, Durango, Tobias, and one of the staffers whose name I didn't catch. The bearded guy who looks like Paul Giamatti.

During Closing Ceremonies, the theme for next year's Furry Fiesta was announced: the '70s. Some people in the audience groaned, but there were a lot of good things that came out of the '70s: movies such as The Godfather, Jaws, Star Wars, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the Rocky Horror Picture Show, etc.; music by artists such as Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, the Who, Fleetwood Mac, etc. I'm curious to see what gets done with it.

More stuff about Furry Fiesta

I felt fine the whole con, then caught con crud late on Sunday. Now my throat is sore, ugh.

Just like last year, there were various spates of making people lose The Game. Every time I heard someone yell "I just lost the game" or "You just lost the game", all I could think to myself was:

"Thank god I'm only watching the game. Controlling it."




Also, shockwave77598 and I are interested in bringing puppetry to FF next year. That, and the announcement of next year's theme as the '70s, makes me think it would be fun to reenact this ad with puppets:



BTW, advertising works! That Jeep commercial inspired me to spend money.
