Trump day 249
The investigation continues about Russias involvement in our election. Some
with  ads on facebook and bots on twitter. Not counting trying to hack into
voting data. Trump continues to claim it's a hoax. Probably because he feels
it discredits his presidency. Well in my opinon loosing the popular vote by
millions is what discredits his election the most.

There isn't much new. N Korea is on the edge of a hot war with us, The
white houseis using private emails for government information. Aid for
the Caribbean territories is taking too long with many people desperate
for water, and fuel. Trump just says we are handling the situation. Then
complains about football players for not standing up during the
national anthem. Something that isn't the business of any president.

GOP
If our friendly GOP took the same interest they did for H Clinton, perhaps
more would be getting done. They continue to  ignore Trumps indiscretions,
and tweets that do more harm than good for our country. Trump and the
GOP should care more about the people of our country than their agenda.
Trump should care about the country as a whole, not just those who voted
for him.

Puerto Rico has applied for statehood more then once, but our congress,
mostly the GOP have denied it. Now they are blaming them for having a
poor  infrastructure. Puerto Rico has been treated like an unwanted step
child for years. I think it's because of it's Hispanic background, and we
know how the GOP feels about Hispanics.

I really really hate it when after I spend like an hour or so writing out a message to someone and then there is a problem sending it, and the browser just completely drops the message.  x_x   Because of this problem, I usually try to type longer messages in a different program first and copy it over. But that's way less convenient and most of the time not necessary. It's those few times that it is necessary were it gets you.

I'm Australian myself, and I like brevity as much as the next guy, but "of" is not a shortened form of "have", it's just the wrong word. Nobody who writes "should of" does so because they decided that "have" has two letters too many. Besides, "should have" already has two shortened forms, "should've" and "shoulda", neither of which misuse a word to mean something it doesn't.
"Should of" = "should've" when they are spoken. So I don't see how this is more of a grammar offense than something like "irregardless" where it literally would mean the opposite of what they mean it to mean.

On that note, I dislike it when people use the word "literally" for emphasis rather than to say it is literal. The reason this "grinds my gears" is because it breaks down the ability for the word to convey the meaning it's suppose to convey. The whole point of language is to convey meaning, so I don't like it when words are used in ways that could get in the way of conveying meaning. But it otherwise does not bother me if words are used differently for stylistic choice or to conveying meaning in other ways.

Australians really like to shorten words. Using a different word does not mean that we are illiterate.

People who do not understand that language changes over time and the definition of words and syntax (grammar) of the English language is not set in stone. For example, people who get upset when "should of" is used in replacement of "should have".
No, I understand perfectly. I accept "irregardless" as using a non-standard double-negative for emphasis; there ain't nothing wrong with that. I'll even accept "conversate"; that it's unnecessarily long is hardly a valid criticism when the same can be said of "converse". But I draw the line at using one word when another is meant for no other reason than the writer being too illiterate to know the difference.

This actually happened to me.

Seems like there's an interesting story there. Care to elaborate?

Seems more like this is a Halloween related thing than a Furry thing. Though when I saw them last time I was at Walmart looking for those new Fingerlings animatronic monkeys for my robot critter collection I was tempted to look for a dog or wolf one even though I never had much interest in fursuiting.

It is probably my favorite book. I'm dying to see the movie but social anxiety tends to keep me away from movie theatres.
And, yes, I just got done with rereading the book and Pennywise is some ancient Eldritch abomination type thing. It can take any form but it's preferred form is that of a clown. It's true form is revealed to be a giant spider. But that is only because it's the closest thing to what it really looks like that the human mind can comprehend. Those who see it as it really is or looks into it's "deadlights" is driven insane or goes catatonic. So, yeah, an alligator would be about as much a threat to Pennywise as a baby cockroach would be to a human.

Yeah, I've always hated the "elves dwarves and humans are always good and beast type beings are usually evil" thing myself as well. Humans tend to like to make themselves Mary Sue type characters in fiction. Humans are special and any creature that disagrees is automatically evil.

poetry corner / *spoken word* It's About Time
« Last post by Glycanthrope on September 25, 2017, 03:07:18 pm »
I've recorded a reading of some of my poetry, set to music.

Some of the poems have been posted here previously, but since Furtopia doesn't support audio material (yet),
I'm afraid I have to lure you to my Furaffinity account to listen to it.

The poems are about writing, and capturing the moment of "now"
Running time is approx 13 minutes, including a six minute musical interlude I call "concerto for piano and railway."
It's a recording of a busy subway station, where all the recognizable musical notes have been singled out,
and played on piano and cello, then mixed back in with the original sounds.

admittedly, It's a bit on the experimental side but... hey, it's SFW.
