A quick heads-up to everyone here who uses Facebook: When you make a comment or reply to other posts, be careful what sort of feelings or emotions you betray toward other people or sensitive social issues. You are not allowed to show any hint of empathy or understanding toward folks who are pushed into committing acts of violence by their aggressors, and are obligated to follow strict mob mentality in every observation or belief you merely share. If you don't then you are instigating to violence, and will have your ability to comment blocked for 24 hours (also to click the "like" button, that's apparently very important when pointlessly repressing users).

What happened is that I wrote a comment on a post by EFF, which spoke about the government's latest disgusting internet censorship plans. My original comment was deleted so I probably can't find it any more, but it basically said something among the lines of:

"Things like this make me have a degree of understanding toward people who get to the point where they commit armed attacks on governments."

Because frankly, that they do! I did not endorse any acts of violence, I did not claim to support those people, I didn't even say it's a good thing: All I said was that I'm beginning to understand what leads to people being enraged to the point of eventually turning on their governments even through military means. I won't even get into the fact that they actually gave a shit about a simple reply on a post... a fucking string of text that spanned two lines, in a field that was probably going to get hidden after being buried in a sea of other comments.

But nope: On the virtual police state simulator Facebook, you are not allowed to claim that you understand people who are pushed to the brink by the stupidity of those who rule them. How dare you express a feeling of understanding not allowed by the site administration! You're obligated to show only critique and hatred when the site demands it, otherwise you're breaking something that is apparently still called "community guidelines".

My message to the founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, who will obviously never see it but ask me if I care: Get your shit straight dawg! I know you once said that you see your site as a religion, but this is ridiculous. Perhaps you should rename "community guidelines" to "bible" and "blocking" to "burning the heretics" at this point... such would be more accurate to what you're doing and how you people understand the internet. Facebook is beginning to resemble online what China and North Korea resemble in real life, which further proves my point that people everywhere are having serious authoritarian mentalities they need to get checked before dealing in running a major service.
Grab your popcorn, grab your soda: It's time for another very angry rant from your (usually) friendly neighborhood vixen, MirceaKitsune.

Disclaimer: My intent is not to actively attack any specific person and group. If by chance this journal breaks any site rules, I'm not aware of that at the time of this posting and apologize; As far as I know you're allowed to express your opinion on any subject, and I've seen many people rant much harder than me. Also this writing is cross-posted across all of the websites I'm using.

So every once in a while, a reoccurring scenario takes place on some of the art sites I frequent. To sum it all up in a number of steps:

1 - There's an announcement regarding changes in the site rules, or some other general discussion about the furry fandom.
2 - I decide to scroll through the comments to see people's opinions or post thoughts of my own.
3 - I suddenly encounter a comment scrutinizing the staff for not doing more to detect secretly underage characters in porn art, delete it and ban the artists from the site.
4 - Finding myself compelled to say something, I suggest the user to stop promoting pointless hatred and censorship aimed against artwork.
5 - The person immediately accuses me of being a pedophile or supporting them, expresses their hatred toward me, and blocks me before anything more can be said.

Now what really pissed me off wasn't just this cliche argument taking place in a comment section, but an unrelated event that just so happened to top it; I woke up to find a PM from an unknown user on one of the art sites, which of course I will not name here without their permission. The title read something among the lines of "stop excusing that pedophile". It took me a while to figure out that it's about a short comment I left on a submission from the same site: It was made by one of my favorite cartoon artists, and featured an arguably cub-ish character having sex... in it I pretty much said that I love their style and hope they won't ever run into trouble for drawing this controversial genre. I was lectured on how apologizing pedophiles will get me into trouble, how the site's staff has a conspiracy to not ban this artist, and how the person already helped get the artist's friends banned over sneaking cryptic kid porn.

I'm going to make myself very clear to everyone who is doing this sort of thing: I have just about had it with your fanatical bullshit! What in the living hell is wrong with you people?! Do you seriously think I care to join you on crusades to demonize and harass artists, just because they draw something that triggers your sorry fat asses?! Do you somehow believe I'm obligated to share your fragile feelings on how someone depicts underage characters in a fucking drawing, because if I don't you're going to twist reality and claim that I support child abuse? Because guess what: I won't. And do you know what I legitimately think? I think the lot of you are more twisted and despicable than some actual child abusers... which don't get me wrong, are pretty wrong in the head. Your fanaticism rivals that of radicalized Muslims and the Christian inquisition, whereas the way you address problems makes me think of the Nazis and the KKK. There are simply no fucking words.

Since I know some people lack the basic intelligence to understand what I'm even talking about here, and are likely foaming around the corners of their mouths screaming "he's supporting the pedophiles", allow me to explain what this is all about in a way their microscopic brains can hopefully grasp: This is about people's uncanny and cringe worthy inability to separate fictional art from reality. This is about a bunch of human beings who are so fucking mad, they want to see artists banned or beaten or arrested for creating a god damn drawing with a pencil on a piece of paper! This is about the demented lot that spends hours looking at porn on art sites, only to find if a character might be secretly underage so they can usher staff and gangs of cyberbullies to intimidate that artist. Do you people have a flicker of lucidity on just how ridiculous you fucking are? Do you have any awareness of just how far you have lost touch with reality? Does acting like a peasant chasing witches and heretics with torches and pitchforks in the 21th century seriously feel right to you?

Yes folks: I'm well aware that in this human world we live on, there is a thing called pedophilia which is the next big social issue after terrorism. You can be sure that I disagree with rape of any kind, it's an evil thing to do just like robbery or murder! Only difference for me is that I don't give a crap whether it's a child or not, as for me age generally makes little difference... unlike some hypocrites who shit up a tornado when a 14 year old deliberately asks for sex, yet if it's a 20 year old girl actually getting raped it's her fault for wearing a sexy outfit and inciting the men. Pathetic... just pathetic.

Never the less, not even fear for the safety of children justifies the shit I've lived to see some people do at this point. To start an outright frenzy over someone drawing a few lines and circles... no, just fucking hell no; Even the apes from which the neanderthals evolved would know better than that! Unfortunately I have to point a few facts of basic realism, for those who have floated away into utter madness:

1 - Looking at rape art does not make you a rapist... looking at films where people shoot each other doesn't make you a killer... all the same, looking at cubs having sex does not make you a pedophile. Watching a piece of art, no matter what it's about, will NEVER EVER cause someone to magically turn into a criminal! Even if it somehow did, censoring art would still not be the solution... because that's batshit crazy!
2 - The event does not happen in any physical reality that I'm aware of, it's just pixels on a screen. No real living being is getting mentally nor physically damaged, it's all in your obsessive minds! Want no underage characters doing sexy stuff? Look away from the screen and poof, they disappear from the reality of your brain! Problem fucking solved... who would have ever imagined?
3 - Consider that the characters you see aren't even humans; Many pieces imply that, in the society where the action occurs, having sex before being under the highly specific age of 18 is a perfectly okay thing! This is especially true for anthro characters, which suggest a parallel timeline or aliens from another planet. You're further making a fool of yourself by projecting your paranoia and controversies onto a race which works differently from humans... if those characters were real some would be laughing their asses off at you!

Before anyone asks, yes I'm aware that Furaffinity and other art sites have rules against this type of artwork... also that in a few dictatorships masquerading as 1st world countries, creating or looking at a drawing can get you in the thought police's torture camps. I do not promote anyone breaking any site rules, nor will I waste my time debating them let alone presenting the sane alternatives available. However I have the right to an opinion and to otherwise discourage something I disagree with... this now being one of the few things to have ignited true burning hatred within my soul.

In ending, I have one request to make; I kindly ask every person who supports the active persecution of artists for any of the things they draw to get the fuck outta my face. Same goes for people who take issue with the fact that I find cub porn cute, whereas my love and support for it grows the more this ridiculous hatred rises. Obviously I don't give a damn if you dislike this sort of theme yourself... I only mind diseased craziness in people. Please write your comment filled with lies and anger below, block me to prove your morality to your fellow idiots, then get lost; I don't want to interact with those kinds of batshit delusional people a minute longer than I have to in this world. As for the rest, thank you for being among the sane few of us and for supporting logic and common sense in a world that's rapidly losing both. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
As I explained in a recent journal, my Patreon was greatly affected by the sudden departure of an important supporter. This has left me under my targets once more, and in desperate need of new patrons. Meanwhile I'm going to be away for two weeks this month, and won't be able to work on some projects from my laptop and 3G connection. Considering all this, I did some thinking and decided on a future strategy for attracting new patrons, part of the direction my Patreon will be taking from this point on.

During the upcoming months, I'm going to publish sneak peaks and extras from several games and animations I've been working on during the past few years, which I've currently kept to myself or only vaguely mentioned in group chats. Few people know this, but I have tons of unfinished projects sitting on my drive... roughly 25 animations and 15 games, some started as long as 5 years ago. Of course many are simple tests that nothing might come out of, but some are past what I would consider halfway done. It's uncertain when early alphas of those games or finished versions of the animations will be out, as they're each at various stages of completion and require varying amounts of effort. However test renders and screenshots exist, and I believe the best choice would be to share my progress with the rest of the world.

Starting this month, exclusive sneak peaks of projects yet to be announced will be available to 5$ patrons: Supporters on this tier will not only learn about those projects earlier, but also get to see early screenshots and potential preview videos. Further more, 10$ supporters will have access to special WIP material... this includes renders optimized for wallpapers and possibly even early game demos. Additionally I'm thinking of letting patrons in the 25$ tier take decisions I'm undecided about, such as naming characters or picking between multiple choices I'm willing to have a character take in a story. TLDR;

  • $5 Tier: You will see early announcements as well as screenshots and videos of currently secret projects.

  • $10 Tier: You will also have access to wallpaper friendly renders or early game demos of those projects.

  • $25 Tier: You can offer prioritized answers to questions about those projects and shape their outcome.

This august I'll be starting by unveiling one of my most ambitious animations thus far. Grab one of the tiers if you haven't already, and stay tuned for more info later this week!

Vore Tournament 2.0.1 bugfix release plan

Wow: The release of Vore Tournament 2.0.0 has been a blast! I could barely reply to all of the feedback and questions you guys had, which even now continue to flow. Thank you all for showing so much interest in this project! It really helps to know that it was a success.

Unfortunately a lot of comments also included bug reports. There are quite a few problems I had missed and other players noticed... nothing too bad or game-breaking, but they are still issues that will need to be dealt with. Currently I've noted up to 8 bugs of various natures, which you can read through over on our bug tracker:

https://gitlab.com/voretournament/data_voretournament/issues

As such I've taken the decision to make a 2.0.1 bugfix release, before I start working on the things planned for 2.1.0. There is no specific date planned for this release, but it should happen within the following months. I don't know whether I will be able to fix all of the currently noted issues in it, but I will be trying to crack each one.

If you have a Gitlab account, you are encouraged to report any bugs you notice at the link mentioned above, in case you're not seeing them listed there already. If you're familiar with the Vore Tournament code, you may also make a pull request in case you come up with your own solution! I will give the 2.0.1 release additional pause, to make sure others have enough time to notice other potential issues that can be addressed in this update.

Vore Tournament 2.0.0 & Net Neutrality day

First of all, I will begin with an unrelated but never the less essential reminder: As many of you likely know, today (12 July 2017) is Net Neutrality day. If you enjoy the games and animations I make, you likely enjoy the free and open internet I use to offer them to you... and if you enjoy that, then Net Neutrality is something you MUST stand up for! Please take a minute to check out the following links on the subject:

https://www.eff.org/issues/net-neutrality
https://www.battleforthenet.com/july12

For whose of you who follow me and my projects, 12 July is an important day for another reason as well: Today is the day Vore Tournament 2.0.0 is finally released! After months of work on porting the base features, fixing the essential bugs, and setting up a default balance and configuration... we now have an official release, which is easy to download and run on top of any recent Xonotic installation. For those who haven't seen the announcement submission in my gallery, VT 2.0.0 for Xonotic 0.8.2 can be installed by following the following steps:

  1. Download and install the latest version of Xonotic from http://xonotic.org You might want to try a vanilla game first, to make sure the base game is working properly.

  2. Download the archive of the latest Vore Tournament release from this repository using the download button provided.

  3. Unpack this archive inside the base Xonotic directory, so that the "data_voretournament-*" directory is sitting next to the "data" directory.

  4. Rename "data_voretournament-*" to "data_voretournament", deleting the extra names and numbers from the directory name.

  5. Launch the Xonotic executable with the parameters "-customgamedirname2 data_voretournament" from the command prompt or a modified shortcut. Example: "xonotic.exe -customgamedirname2 data_voretournament".

If you want to enjoy yourself to a fun little video before giving it a try, here's the official release clip I put together last week, which briefly shows footage from both the old and new game:

On the boring and annoying side of things, I must remind everyone that if you enjoy Vore Tournament, you might want to consider patronizing me through Patreon; Your support is what made the project possible thus far, and what will make future plans as well as similar game projects happen! Keep VT as well as other games and animations going at:

https://www.patreon.com/MirceaKitsune
As we enter the last week of June, I once again call upon fans of VT for their help: The $400 Patreon goal is only $50 away from being met. If 5 people were to pledge $10 each, Vore Tournament 2.0.0 Alpha could be released next month! Help make this happen: Support the project if you can, and spread the word to friends or communities whom you believe would enjoy the game! My existence and thus my ability to continue its development relies on reaching this target. Think you can chip in?

VT remains in feature freeze mode until 2.0.0 is out. Once that happens and 2.1.0 is on the radar, attention will primarily shift to the artistic aspect; More Xonotic stock assets will be replaced with VT relevant art, there will be new music, as well as proper bots and potentially an original campaign! Some great new features are also planned, most of which I'm currently keeping a secret until I decide how I will actually approach them.

A hosting solution for the VT release is currently being thought of, and I will likely make an announcement in this regard on my Patreon within the following days. In the meantime, other projects are being worked on which the community will surely find to their liking... including a CGI reminiscent of the animations I did many years ago, for which early previews will be available to the $5 Patreon tier soon.

A sad day for civilization

Usually I try to keep my quota of political journals to a minimum. However the unfortunate events of today prompt what is perhaps one of the harshest journals I've written in this regard. I imagine I'll face quite a bit of criticism for it... both because many will see it as an exaggeration, and because I'm reacting strongly to something happening in the UK despite not being British myself. I will explain both of those things below.

On 08-June-2017 (yesterday as of the date of this posting), a once important member of the modern world (Britain) has left our ranks, by legitimating the war against modern society. An act committed by allowing an enemy of the civilized world to return to power, after its unprecedented attacks against every good achievement mankind has ever had within the last decades. That enemy is the UK's prime minister, Theresa May, the leader of the Conservative party.

For those not familiar with this monstrous woman, and why in my view she embodies the end of modern times, I will refresh everyone on who this bitch is and what she has done thus far:

- Theresa May promised the outright destruction of the internet as we know it, and its replacement with a national intranet under strict ideological control by the UK government (even more tightly than China). Her plans go to the point where every citizen must ask for exclusive permission to post anything online (even journals like this one) and no kind of content may be hosted on any server without the government's explicit approval, meaning literally every website we know today would have to be banned.

- Her battle against technology has already begun with the war on encryption; The UK plans to force companies like Facebook to remove security from messaging apps, so that her cult may spy on everyone and see who is an enemy of its ideology. She asked for encryption to be entirely outlawed if possible, despite attempts to explain to her that this is plain mathematics and simply cannot be stopped. Such would mean banning every secure piece of software on the planet and making it a crime for developers to program such (including open-source programmers like me and places like Sourceforge / Github), plus as criminalizing the https protocol and more.

- She is the author of a piece of medieval ideology, recently revived and distorted to match the 21th century, called the war on porn; Her purist sect believes that indecent content on the internet is responsible for terrorism, while of course promoting the despicable myth of children under the age of 18 needing protection from pixels on a screen to avoid being scarred for life. Needless to say, any website containing any kind of porn is to be banned under her theocracy and illegal to possess within her modern inquisition (same as in North Korea). Already the Digital Economy Bill was passed into law, and it's rumored that people might need to sign up at their local post office for permission to access any NSFW website at home... I am god damn serious.

- Under her caricature of a dictatorship, the UK is set to become a surveillance state with a harsher authoritarian regime than many 3rd world nations. Not only should every single online communication be actively monitored by the government, but even public services workers (such as ambulances and firefighters) must have access to everyone's browsing history and private lives. The UK also maintains a list of potential enemies of the state using unknown criteria, which was recently revealed to contain broad categories of people including goth teenagers who suffer from depression. Along with this they also plan on creating computer programs (perversely dubbed Artificial Intelligence) which use patterns to automatically decide if and when someone should be arrested and give the order to the police!

- She has blatantly manipulated the recent terror attacks (the Manchester bombing and the London stabbings) for her sick political agenda. In less than a few hours since those attacks, she outright stepped out and used the lives of those killed to leverage her own schemes, saying it was all the internet's fault and even implying that online pornography is why those people lost their lives!

- She has publicly and explicitly stated that human rights are an issue that is getting in her way, and need to be dealt with so that her plans may be accomplished.

I believe this should be enough to explain why I oppose this devil with my entire being... which seems to spread more panic than ISIS, who it's ironically vowed so hard to fight (by firing the London police or sending them after Julian Assange apparently). Since I'm aware the next predominant question will be "but you're not even British, why do you care", I will also explain why the things that happened in the UK are so personal to me:

- At this point, what's happening is not just a win or loss for the nation Britain; It is a win or a loss for modern society worldwide. The fact that this psychopath was allowed to be prime minister again, instead of being sent to seek treatment at the nearest mental ward for patients with serious psychiatric issues, is a legitimization for this kind of madness here in the free world! The message is literally "in 1st world nations in the year 2017, it might be okay for a president or prime minister to actively work on banning the internet or reviving medieval bans on porn or shamelessly distorting terrorist attacks to push any legislation". Authoritarianism spreads like a disease among the circles of power, and even in Europe or America this sort of thing is like the taste of blood in the water for a shark.

- She is actively trying to spread many of her demented ideas beyond Britain, and has a certain degree of power to do so. Since the UK would remain close to the EU even after brexit, they will be pushing Europe to adapt to her clique's skewed ideologies. The insane copyright proposals already circulating here (censorship machine, link tax, hate speech fines for social media) are said to be the doing of Theresa May and Angela Merkel (another authoritarian piece of shit). During the last attack she has also instigated other nations governments to "stop social media".

- The internet is a global entity, and many of the companies that offer services (Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc) also activate there. Most of their evil plans (such as backdoors in encryption) cannot be done "only for UK citizens"... if they're implemented they will exist for all users worldwide and put everyone at risk! Such companies might have to choose between leaving the UK entirely or giving in to those demands, whereas sites hosting NSFW content might have to decide between being banned at ISP level across Britain or implementing disgusting and unacceptable age verification systems (online identity theft). Worse than that, in an act of total delusion, Theresa May or Amber Rudd already expressed hopes that the worldwide internet will itself conform to their model and "let the UK be the gatekeeper of the internet", meaning they hoped we would all just bow down and embrace their new "internet" as a replacement. We do not want this cancer spreading here, keep it in your Orwellian hellhole far away from the rest of us!

- I have friends in Britain... and even if I didn't, I know that the people living there are citizens of a (once) modern society who wish to live their lives in peace. It's unacceptable that they they are being terrorized by a mad person that's out of control and has lost touch with reality! And yes... I know: Far worse happens in places like Syria or China, where people are killed on a daily basis or starve to death or what not. The difference is that there, it's been this way for ages, whereas here it's new: Most 3rd world countries are places that are evolving slowly, but Britain is a modern nation that's devolving into them instead! People living in those areas are also used to it, they never had human rights or internet so they don't actually lose anything... people in Britain are being raped of fundamental rights they've had for a lifetime, which are granted and unquestionable in any civilized society!

So there you have it. The worst thing about this all is that, I wish I could say it's the fault of some sort of coup; Yesterday's elections got hacked, people with AK47's broke in and put Theresa back in power, so on. Unfortunately it was not: More than half of the British population deliberately voted for this abomination, after she has openly made it clear that she will destroy the modern world as we know it. This... is what people in what's considered a top democracy wanted. I'm struggling not to generalize and discriminate against all elderly people right now... granted that old farts are supposedly at fault for all this, whereas youngsters are the ones who struggled to avoid the disaster. Part of me wants to say "they're fucking 90 already, why can't they just hit the bucket and take their 1940 ideologies with them to the grave"... which is sad because my own grandparents died in the recent years, yet what happened is so wrong that it gets you places you wouldn't want to be.

After this alongside other events, my view of humanity as a whole has been altered beyond repair once more, and I wish I could never see an ape again in my existence. I expect no more safety nor the hope of a decent life even where I live, because I realize no freedom or right is ever basic enough to not be put into discussion decades after everyone has had it. Any breed of fanatic can just rise to power at any moment, and attempt to do whatever the hell they want. I wish the error known as humanity could be wiped out by some natural event already, though its own stupidity will probably do the job for it. I'm sorry that I had to be born here and witness the easily avoidable history of this species. If there's anything close to a god or gatekeeper of conscious minds out there, I will not forgive them for having been forced to live this miserable experience... that I can promise.

Oh, and one more thing: You are free to redistribute the contents of this journal as you please. It would bring some comfort if people could better spread the word about what's happening, so we can all be ready to defend ourselves from the emerging threats against the modern way of life... threats not created by terrorist groups elsewhere, but our own governments copying their tactics and behaviors.

Happy bunny worship day!

Today is an important day for Christians and furries alike: Christians because they celebrate worshiping a man named Jesus, furries because they celebrate worshiping various bunny goddesses... who knew we had so much in common? While I'm not a member of the first fandom, I decided to do my part in the later one today... hailing our recent bunny overlord, Judy Hopps. If you haven't seen it already, here are the links to the renders... and obviously, happy bunny worship day everyone!

Alright... this is a journal I'll be writing with a very heavy heart. It's a decision which I know will disappoint a lot of people, as it goes against the things I've promised to do toward the community, not to mention those who are watching and have been supporting me thus far. However I believe it is the only right approach at this stage, and will not be changing my mind about it. Below is an in-depth explanation of my decision... please read the entire post before judging and jumping to conclusions. Thank you.

I have decided that I will no longer be publishing my art or animations under a free license. In fact, I'm looking into how I may retract this license from my existing works altogether, and switch to the classic copyright system used by other artists. My game projects (such as Vore Tournament) will also become proprietary and close-sourced soon, while I'll be looking into integrating DRM for further protection against piracy.

This decision comes after an incident on another art site which I will not name here, involving a person I'd rather keep anonymous for now. About two weeks ago, this person decided to re-upload all of my works to their own gallery on another website... some of them modified in ways I do not approve of (eg: vore bellies removed) and with my signature stripped and therefore no credit given. I've went through various procedures trying to resolve the problem peacefully, which I will dive into in more detail below... for what it's worth, none of them had any success. After this experience, I realize why copyright is important for artists, and what a mistake I've made by allowing others to use my artwork freely... one I will not repeat again. These are the steps I went through since the whole thing began, in an attempt to resolve the issue as sanely as possible:

1 - Like every artist who deals with this sort of thing, I first contacted the person responsible for editing and leaking my art. I asked them to take it down, but as expected they refused. I then threatened them with legal action, and surprisingly they refused again. Because I was out of options and already frustrated at this point, I lastly resorted to threatening that I would find out where they live come after them... however the thief had the nerve to fear for their safety and blocked me! Wow.

2 - I next contacted the website on which my works were posted, and told them I have a case of copyright infringement to report. Someone took a look at the incident, but said that because my stuff was released under a CC license there is nothing they can do. I explained that I no longer felt like my art being openly licensed, and free licenses have a clause allowing them to be revoked based on the personal mood and regrets of an author... however they outright said I was wrong, the nerve to say such a thing to me! I proceeded to throw a stream of insults and threats at the admins... yet to my shock, I was ignored and this did not make the problem go away!

3 - With the first two options exhausted, I went ahead and did the third thing an artist does in this situation: I contacted authorities. The local police and interpol wouldn't do much, stating that only pedophile art is special enough to offend them into being motivated to do their job on the internet... so I ultimately made the big step of calling the CIA. I pointed them to the website, then showed them every piece of vore porn I've created over the years, alongside my identity documents and address so they'd know how to find me. The agents sounded very confused and uncomfortable from what I could tell, except for that one agency where I think I could hear fapping noises coming from one corner... anyway they said that in the name of copyright enforcement, they'd send a man in the field to question the locals and investigate the crime, using American taxpayers money to fund the operation. I felt like I achieved something big in my life at that moment, and that democracy has truly done it... kinda like the power an oil corporation feels when they first strip people of their land and send the police to beat them up for objecting. However a week has passed ever since, and government agents have still not captured the enemy art thief! How is this possible, what world are we living in?!

4 - Realizing that the law will not help me and I must take matters into my own left hand, I decided to take the next step: Hiring an assassin to kill this homeboy! So I installed TOR browser and went on the deep web. After a few hours of browsing through drug stores for no suspicious reason, I found a forum where assassin types hang out. I met some wonderful people on there... including poor serial killers who had a very hard life, and philanthropists who wanted to murder others solely to cheer up our dark lord Satan. Yet I was unable to find anyone that could help me in my epic quest: Most hitmen already had a very busy schedule, and said they're on assassination tours across the world for the next couple of months... I couldn't wait that long, I want my satisfaction and I want it now! The funny thing was, most killers were hired for the exact same reason as my own, which is to go after art thieves who stole furry art and posted it on the internet... yet they were all apparently working for one person, supposedly someone who goes by the initials "FAF".

5 - Being out of options, I'm now resorting to the last solution available: Doing it myself. Yesterday I sold my lifelong belonging, my mother's house which left her homeless, as well as my cat to a Chinese butcher... in order to get the money needed to fly to every country where I suspect the art thief might be hiding. Once there, I plan to knock at random doors of random houses in random cities... statistically speaking I'm bound to find the perpetrator this way, as well as recognize them even if I've never seen their face! I've also contacted important weapon dealers, and paid them a handsome sum of money for big guns that I can totally take on a plane without raising suspicion. I managed to get my hands on some pretty rare equipment in the process... including a new generation of bombs developed by terrorists which use Allah's shaved pubic hair for gunpowder, and a new generation of rocket launchers called the U.N.C.L.E. Exploder V69 developed by Kim Jong Un in person! At last... I can show the world just how serious copyright infringement is, and give these heretics the punishment they deserve for copying a drawing on the internet. Brace yourselves evildoers, for the modern world has come... and it's come up the walls.

Oh, yeah... and happy April Fools everyone! Remind me to come up with better and less scary fanfiction for this sort of thing next year.

Digital Economy Bill artist challenge

Some might have seen my recent posts regarding the Digital Economy Bill, or heard about it from other sources. For those of you who haven't, it's an extreme censorship law proposed in Britain aiming to "purify" the internet of porn. As a means of protest, I have created an artist challenge and a template to go with it. I dare everyone to complete it and / or pass it on to other artists!

The rule is simple: Draw every sex act that would be prohibited on the internet if the bill were to pass. This includes a variety of kinky stuff which I condensed into 9 panels, each panel representing a specific theme. If you don't want to draw something, skip it altogether or just scribble something crazy instead... the point of the challenge is both to be fun and to spread the word about this medieval age crap. Be mindful of each sites rules when uploading your result, as some might take issue with a few of the themes listed here. Also the template itself is licensed Public Domain / CC0, do whatever your heart pleases with it!

I guess I'll include my own completed version in the same post, which is CC-BY-SA so feel free to share it too just please credit. It must be the craziest thing I've ever drawn in my life, but damn it I have no regrets!
