general furry discussion / Re: Does your fursona run a business?
« Last post by Kobuk on Today at 09:39:19 am »
I have decided to run a small cafe and coffee shop here in the city of Furtopia: Kobuk's Kafe & Koffee Shop.  :D
It's not a large place. Just a small business where people can come in, sit down, grab a quick bite to eat or something to drink, and socialise. We offer hot and cold sandwiches, salads, soup, various pastries and muffins, snacks, and assorted juices and coffees. Our doughnuts and other pastry items are baked by Old Rabbit and delivered fresh every day. :) Same thing for our various breads we use for the sandwiches which are baked and delivered by Cause the Rat. We're open 8am to 7pm Mon. to Thurs., 8am to 7pm on Fri. and Sat., and 9am to 5pm on Sun.

My fursona deals in rough gems, minerals, and fossils. He collects these all in his spare time. Most of his clients make items from them for retail.  Some clients use his goods in rituals, sometimes involving transformation. He caters only to anthropomorphic shapeshifters, since he is almost anyways in that form himself.   His store is located in the woods , up highway 119 in Colorado, and is open only on the first Saturday of each month from 8am till 8 pm.    Cash only sales.  It is a cabin like any other.   There is no sign.  Business is by word of mouth only. He works a day job in human form as an engineer.

President Trump is going nuts over the book and tapes released
by his ex staff member.. Filing a law suit in New York hoping to
scare her away. Asking the attorney general to have her
arrested. We can only wonder where it will all lead.

Trumps military parade for this fall is on life support. Seems
the price tag is going from 21 million to 90 million depending
on who is talking. Personally this parade is a waste of tax
payer dollars. World leaders don't need to see a parade to know
how strong our military is. This is just a ego trip for Trump,
and should be cancelled. 

President Trump wants everyone to think he knows it all. (Mr
Perfect who is never wrong..) He never has liked the CIA or
the FBI unless they pat him on the head and say "Good Boy."
It's the same with laws that get in his way.

He has the power to pull security clearances from anyone, but
he is supposed to follow procedures to do so. Not to punish
political enemies. Trump seems to think he can use his power to
punish anyone he doesn't like. Just like President Nixon did. If anyone
needs his security clearance removed it's President Trump.

Every time he does something wrong he claims he has huge
support for doing so. But he never tells us who these  supporters
are. Now he is saying his ex campign manager who is on trial, is
a very good person. Smells like a pardon in the works to me. It
appears if you have a lot of money and brag on Trump your a very
good person. Even if your guilty of theft and tax evasion. I think
Trump is padding his mattress with rich friends.

Let's get some furry discussion going here. ;)

If your fursona were to run a business, what do you think it might be? Would it cater to all types of fursona species or only a select variety? Would it be a textile business, tech and manufacturing business, financial, retail, restaurant and hospitality, or something else?

news forum / Re: Aretha Franklin Dead at 76.

Totally bummed. But totally blest to have heard her stuff. The real musician generation is dying out. In our time if you didn't have talent it didn't matter what you looked like. You weren't going to make it. Folks today don't have what we had. Take away the autotune and the lip singing and 80% of what's called 'talent' today wouldn't make it.

RIP Aretha. Total Respect.

news forum / Aretha Franklin Dead at 76.
« Last post by Old Rabbit on August 16, 2018, 08:31:40 am »
Often called the Queen of soul, Aretha Franklin was one of the greatest singers
of the 20th century. Gone at the age of 76, but not forgotten. It's likely she
will be remembered as one of histories greatest singers.

A fine piano player as well she was playing and singing before she was in
her teens. 50 years, and over 75 albums. Singing at Obama's inauguration,
and many many other special events, she was loved by millions.

Yep, those types of screams are really easy. It all starts with a relaxed through and making a creaky door sound.  then lots of practice so you don't sound like a creaky door.  :) Because i have a deep voice my highest falsetto is a D one octave above middle C. When I'm warmed up enough I can turn that into a scream. But it breaks up on me. I've worked through the natural break between my normal and falsetto years ago. And know all about proper breathing and vocal health.  Learning this not to spend the entire night 'screaming' into a mic. I'll be using this to enhance and add emotion to the music I do. Its taking a lot of practice to get the control I want. To be able to smoothly transition between a normal tone and the breakup of the scream technique. Trying to make it sound more natural. Like I'm actually starting to scream. All by using a technique that is really quite relaxing to do.

Awesome band Choky!

Just dropped in to share the live gigs I've been doing lately and hopefully get some furry feedback:

-Been playing more with SoundBay lately: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-izLPzMQb04 We won second place at this one,first place winners knew the judges... >:( ...funny coincidence huh...yeaaah suuure. (Fave bit on this one is after 7:55 where band said I was allowed to just go crazy long with the scream at the end) :D
-Also was playing with PitWailers but we have since disbanded,which is a shame since I love stoner rock: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjTQ95nivVs
-Warming the voice up at soundcheck before a SoundBay gig: https://www.instagram.com/p/BiAfl2xlsnC/ In mah furry wolf jacket. :)

Got more gigs on 23rd and 26th this month with SoundBay so stuff it going well so far.

Any critisism and thoughts are very welcome and wanted...although I already know I should probably move about a little more on stage and show a little more personality. :-[ I get nervous I guess.

(I shared these videos in Cause the Rats scream thread since it was on topic and potentially helpful,but would prefer that any critisisms and feedback be left here instead as to not go off topic in Cause the rats thread which is about screams and vocal fry)

EDIT: Forgot I haven't been on here in ages and am probably new to some furs...I am the male vocalist.

I think the type of scream you want to do is the one I'm doing at 7:55 in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-izLPzMQb04 (SoundBay)

Or...the screams I'm doing at both 1:02 and 1:28 in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjTQ95nivVs (PitWailers)

I could probably help you by telling you what you are doing right/wrong,but you would have to upload a soundclip first,that,and I would have to remember to come back to check the thread at a later date...I don't have a lot of time lately and this is like only the 2nd time this year I've remember to come back to furtopia to check threads out. :-[
