Interview in Splitsider, and CollegeHumor’s message. Last day to vote for the Ursa Majors!
by Patch O'Furr
Last week I interviewed Furry Force writer Adam Conover. The story was covered by Sydney Parker, writing for comedy industry magazine Splitsider. They interviewed me – but I didn’t tell them to call me a “popular furry blogger!” (Is that like being a cool trekkie gardener – an amazing ren-fair knitter – or a fabulous metalhead stamp-collector?)
How the Furry Community Embraced CollegeHumor’s Furry-Lampooning ‘Furry Force’.
CollegeHumor followed up with a message: “Thanks so much for your support and for the great post/interview with Adam!” They shared a video to encourage you to vote for Furry Force to get an Ursa Major:
Vote here… all votes must be in by April 15.
(If my shameless championing of gross animation doesn’t make you tuck tail and run – vote for Dogpatch Press, too!)
A writer for Bojack Horseman made my tail wag.
.@adamconover @DogpatchPress I DEMAND EQUAL TIME. This is a naked award endorsement. Where's the interview about BoJack Horseman? I'll talk.— Raphael Bob-Waksberg (@RaphaelBW) April 11, 2015
Higgs Raccoon from Furrymedia sent me a nice compliment for interviewing people outside of furry fandom. Is there anyone else I should bug for a chat?
Smiley Guy Studios (animators for Furry Force) sent responses to my Q&A. Those will post with sneak peek art later, when they’re ready to share.
I liked one part of the interview with Sydney that didn’t make it into the Splitsider article. She asked if anyone would cosplay Furry Force. I said that furries usually favored original characters… but imagine seeing Victor Vivisector at a con. “Call security!”

Furry admirer @adamconover says he'd be an otter because they are sexy, but not in too buff of a way. http://t.co/OXtJJwS0KR @CollegeHumor— Sydney Parker (@carnivalosouls) April 14, 2015
