FURRY FRIDAY: Without or With?

Way, way back when I first started Furry Friday, it was to show why (at least in my opinion) men with facial hair were sexier and more attractive than clean-shaven men. Almost all of those first Furry Fridays were photos of actors or performers or sports stars with and without facial hair, and then asking people to choose which they liked best. Happily, for me, most of the wins were for those with facial hair of some kind, if not a beard, then at least stubble or mustaches.

So I thought then it might be fun to feature one of those again. Maybe more than one? Anyway, this one is featuring actors without and with facial hair of some kind. So, check them out, and choose for each actor how you feel they look best. We hope you have as much fun as we did putting this together! Remember to vote once, and only once, for each individual actor!

Holocaust Remembrance Day

Never Forget….. I look at current events and I sadly see how it so easily could happen again. Recently the Three Bears went to the heart wrenching museum event, “Auschwitz,” here in Kansas City, that showed what happened, and how this monstrous tragedy happened. I’m haunted by it, as should we all. #neverforget #neveragain

“The Guardian of Machu Llaota” ~ The New Novel by Ariel Tachna

Happy Release Day to wonderful author (and my friend) Ariel Tachna !!

I am so excited about this book. Not only because of the author, but also the subject matter (it is so *not*typical of romance) but the characters as well. Just check out the blurb…!

“The Guardian of Machu Llaota”

Professor Victor Itoua has two passions: the legend of Philli-philli… and PhD candidate Jordan Harris. But while ethics rules and his own doubts keep him from admitting, much less acting on, his feelings for Jordan, nothing can stop him from researching the Philli-philli.

Even if it means Continue reading

Wow! Did Everyone Know That Timothée Chalamet Is Going To Play Willy Wonka?

Yup! At first I thought, “But he’s too young!” and “Do we really need another version of ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’?” Then I read and found out, no, this is a prequel and that explains it all. And with Timothée Chalamet in the roll? Oh, I think I live with this. Not only is he a brilliant actor and will probably wind up being one of the best of his generation, but he has that “unusual” look that says Willy Wonka. The movie, titled “Wonka,” is Willy Wonka’s origin story and will hit theaters on March 17, 2023.

Timothée said the story isn’t “mining the darker emotions in life” but is “a celebration of being off-center and of being okay with the weirder parts of you that don’t quite fit in.” This makes me really happy. I did not care for Tim Burton’s dark view of such a wonderfully happy book. Does Tim Burton ever do anything that isn’t dark? I totally love “The Nightmare Before Christmas” so much. I like “Corpse Bride.” I even pretty much like “Alice in Wonderland” (especially the little twist he added to the story. But otherwise I dislike most of his movies. SO I am quite pleased to see that the new movie will be more true to the magical person who is Willy Wonka!

What do you think? Will this be a good thing or not?

FURRY FRIDAY: Black and White Photography

Black and white photography is a pretty popular subject for Furry Fridays based on the amount of votes they tend to get. And, going by the survey at the beginning of the year, black and white photography was one of the second highest voted topics to feature for Furry Friday.

Black and white photos are often thought to have more of an emotional touch to the subject over color photos. While that may be a matter of opinion, I think we can agree that these photos are certainly visually striking.

Take a look and vote for your favorites!

Eternals Just Broke the MCU’s Disney+ Viewership Record

This article made me so incredibly happy! I mean…wow! I was hoping something like this might happen. People will watch anything for free, and now that they have, what is their responses? “Oh! I didn’t see Eternals in the theater because everyone was slamming it. But not that I have seen it on Disney+ and I really liked it! What is all the hate about?”

You know, not everyone is going to like what I like and visa versa, and I am find with that, and how boring would the world be if we all liked the same things? But it’s the vehement hatred I just don’t understand. And it is why I was so happy to read this article. The love of Eternals is starting to pour in!

Martin Luther King: A Great American Hero

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

Arguably the greatest quote from the American hero, the world hero, Martin Luther King. A hero for all real Americans. A hero for humanity.

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

“A riot is the language of the unheard.”
— MLK, Jr

And as I have said before, “Amen!”

“The significance of what Martin Luther King Jr had to say will probably never go away. He was a brilliant beautiful wonderful man. He lived his life in a way that so many of us could only envy that we could be that courageous.”

Thank God for Martin Luther King.

“Hate begets hate; violence begets violence; toughness begets a greater toughness. We must meet the forces of hate with the power of love… Our aim must never be to defeat or humiliate the white man, but to win his friendship and understanding.”

The Three Bears Are Boosted!! 🐻💉❤️🐻💉❤️🐻💉❤️

Hooray!!! Noah and I finally got our Covid boosters!!

And “R” is on his way to get his as I type this! Fantastic!!

And, yes, we could still possibly get Covid, but as my dear nurse friends who work in hospitals say, almost every Covid patient they have has not been vaccinated.

The Three Bears are safer today! And that’s good!
