Go to your 23rd LJ post.
Copy the 5th sentence (or thereabouts).
Explain it.

All righty, here it is:

Before LotR, Conan and his ilk were the rulers of fantasy literature.

Well, it's pretty self-explanatory, isn't it? :) I was effusing about how cool it was that there were tough guy heroes in Fellowship of the Ring, and bemoaning the general limpness of a lot of contemporary fantasy.

It's kind of interesting to see how my attitudes have changed over time; in the commentary after the post I talk about gaming and how I wish I could play a Conan-ripoff CN fighter/barbarian/rogue in some game, just for the "cut loose and kick butt" fun of it, and I still would actually, but it's no longer quite the burning desire it used to be. I'm having fun with Theran the Warriormage now that the game has finally gained some levels; he's a tactical butt-kicker, rather than a brute force butt-kicker, which has another kind of charm all together. ;)

Great Stuff!

Vince has posted some previews of his upcoming work on Buffalo Wings here. It's really good stuff! cooner's original run of BW was in "Yarf!" and a bit before my time as far as furry art goes, so I'm really not that familiar with it, but I've checked out Cooner's website at least and knowing how much talent that guy has just in his little finger, I'm sure the original BW was great.

I'd just like to mention here that I am super-jealous because I kept trying to get Vince to work on a comic book project with me and he wouldn't do it, so I'm going to pout and generally act like a whinyboy for an hour or two now. >:P

But seriously, Vince, good work! I knew you had it in you!

Stupid Policies Suck

Well, I am no longer allowed to use ICQ at work, even though I'm still allowed to use AIM.

Meanwhile, people I like to chat with, are allowed to use ICQ at work, but not AIM.

Gawd I hate managers.

Edit: It's fixed now! Thanks jadedfox!
