NPR interviews Tempe O’Kun, furry favorite author (again.)
About a year ago, NPR station Prairie Public’s “Main Street” show interviewed Tempe about cuddly Furry romance writing. Lucky dog! It was 23 minutes of super respectful attention. My notice about it brought Tempe here, to share an exclusive peek at his novel Windfall and work for the Nordguard card game. Thanks Tempe, and keep it coming.
A Zootopia animator “publicly and positively acknowledged furries.” (Tip: Crossaffliction on Flayrah.)
The tweet is taken down. VERY CURIOUS. I wonder if Disney is controlling marketing strategy for something they want strictly behind the scenes, to tease but not come right out about it. This subculture is tiny, but buzz can be mighty.
I sent an interview request to the animator, and told him: “You may be aware that we’re all going NUTS about this movie. Some active areas already have meets organized to wear costumes out to the theater (and I think that’s going to happen everywhere.)”
Some furries have always known that Tony the Tiger is a stud. Trashy news blogs discovered our crush and went nuts. (They’re late to the party.)
