No Sunday, but Monday = Funday!

July 15th, 2019

Sorry, I forgot to work on something for Sunday. But I have an excuse! I linked up with an old friend and fellow creative, one Mark Engels (insert Communism joke here), for dinner and a chat, our first in like 𝓂𝓊𝓂𝒷𝓁𝑒 years. We met back in 𝓂𝓊𝓂𝒷𝓁𝑒 during the Wild Wild West years of the internet when our common interest in Battle Angel Alita brought us to the (now extinct) “New Kansas Chat Room“. Man, talk about the memories (more memories I only just discovered)! We spent some time catching up, learning more about what art projects we’ve been working on in the mean time… I let him know about Moose River and MindVR, while Mark let me know about his novel series, one of which being titled Always Grey In Winter; you can check out more of his work at his website here: www.mark-engels.com

Now I will admit that Furries isn’t my main genre of interest, but I won’t say “it’s not my cup of tea”. I can enjoy Furry stories and characters; consider my long-time link to “Sabrina Online” in the Links page, as well as my sponsoring of “Pokémon City” back on my old Pokémon site. Oh yeah, and Shea’s online character xxxGothGrrl666xxx is a Cat-Girl; in Mystic Revolution she’s technically a “Nekko“. …and… ahem… polt is best girl. …. So yeah, to me “Furry” is just one more type of story to read, and I’m not the kind of person to NOT read something, because I love reading for the sake of learning more about different people, cultures, communities, etc.

So that said, I’m definitely excited to read Mark’s story… at least as soon as I can purchase a hard copy. Mark also sweetened the deal a bit—not that it wasn’t sweet enough because Mark wrote it—by including Korean characters into the story, of which at least one is—naturally—a tiger. Mark also said he did his best research to ensure Korean culture is properly depicted, which is even more bonus points for me and my desire to see a more diverse cast in stories.

Our meet up may have only been a few hours in the grand scheme of things, but I’m glad to have reconnected with Mark like that. I’m excited to read what he wrote, and I hope he’s just as excited to read Moose River! 😀 And hopefully you’ll get a chance to check him out as well!
