Events and Parties!!! (The really lost Canadian :P)
Some of you know me some of you don't. I'll do my intro after I tell you about da parties!! Because parties are way more important and are part of a balanced breakfast.
First off this weekend. I should have said something sooner but it wasn’t in stone until now. I nagged and nagged and finally got KAREOKE!! Some of you know I’m a bit of a singer (Shines his medals) and a total show off LOL!!
K so here’s the info: Description:
After Pride day events, why not come out for a little sing-song!
Karaoke at the Victory:
Date: Saturday, June 12, 2010
Time: 9:30pm - 11:30pm (LOL, For ICE, but I'll probably be there all night)
Location: The Victory Hotel
Address: 127 Edward St
Brisbane QLD 4000, Australia
Yes I know, WAAAAAAHAAAA! Rock.
K, next we got MY BIRTHDAY BASH!!!
Now really my Birthday was lasts night (Or in Canada today) but because of scheduling conflicts it will be pushed up to the next week. I wonder if that means I’m not really 32 yet.
Bring some drinks, some food to nibble, a party attitude and come with the Fox a happy birthday!
Husker's Birthday Party:
Start Time: Saturday, June 19, 2010 at 5:00pm
End Time: Sunday, June 20, 2010 at 1:30am
39 Hillgrove Street
Upper Mount Gravatt
Ok now about me:
I’m Husker Fox, now 32, from Canada. Ex-furry artist (Got lazy). Sometimes fursuiter. Sometimes bad, heh…..But always really good ;)
I’m here in Brisbane visiting Iceleron and others that I bump into. I’ve been here since the beginning of May but I haven’t had a chance to say hi to everyone. Mainly because I don’t know where everyone is :P
I don’t know how long I will be here. Probably just another month then I’ll be shipped back. IN A CRATE!! That’s right, I said it O_O. While I’m here though I would like to shake as many paws as possible and meet tons of the Oz furs.
Also I dig the beach and I really want to get some beach trips happening. So if your into that let me know. I love the sand and sea. I’m half Newfie (Newfoundland) and spent allot of my life there. It’s just like it is here except very cold most of the year and you can’t swim in the water or you’ll freeze to death (Although that never stopped me, cuz I’m a beast of a man LOL…RWAR!!!)
While here I’m working out at Jetts gym, because I let my ass get a little fat. I used to be “The buff”. Dam, the stuff age does to you. That and cable TV, a Canadians weakness. Things you should know:
1. CANADA IS NOT A STATE: It’s not part of the U.S.A.
We get along with our American cousins but we are in no way the same people. We are closer to the British. Most Canadians are descendants of the British with in a couple generations. In other words, both great-grandparents on both sides of my family were British (Native, or other), no connection to the U.S.A.
Although we are friends with them.
2. We all live in igloo’s. Sometimes at night around the ice fire our good friend Mantuk would tell us the story of the great Moose that said to the little squirrel “Hey rocky, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat”. With this we would eat the bark off trees and then spend hours making maple syrup while dodging flying hockey pucks.
3. We don’t have a president. We have a prime minister. Right now ours is “Tom Cochrane”, who lives in the “Ann of green gables house” with his wife Celine Dion. You will notice that she did not take Tom’s last name. It’s a choice in Canada. As well as their son “Wayne Gretzky” who chose his own name. It keeps the mail system on its toes.
4. Gay marriage is perfectly legal in Canada as most of you know, but only on Thursdays. The rest of the week we give to Human-animal marriage. We just find that those relationships last longer. Oh, except for Saturday, on Saturdays it’s only legal to marry your pet rock. Those ones never get old.
5. Every Sunday the people of Canada go to Anne Murray’s house as she cooks for the entire country while singing songs about birds and stuff. She’s a little out of her head but we all love her.
And that’s it. All you need to know about the upcoming events, Me, and Canada.
I hope to see all of you before I head back over through the “Ice Shield” into Canada .Love and Hugs

MiDFur Registration Opens This Friday (10/4/09)
WHAT: Australia’s furry convention
WHEN: December 3rd to 6th (Thursday to Sunday), 2009
WHERE: Rydges Hotel (186 Exhibition Street, Melbourne, Victoria)
WEBSITE & FORUMS: http://www.MiDFur.com.au
Last year MiDFur was transformed from an annual furry meet to a full blown convention with great success. With entertaining guests of honour, a convention hall and over 230 furry attendees to hang out with and meet, MiDFur was most definitely a lot of fun. Come December 2009 we get to do it all over again – but bigger and better.
Everything that made MiDFur fun is being improved and expanded upon. This includes running twice as many events in a better venue where everything is all completely centralised. On top of this standard registration is $40 cheaper than it was last year.
Read on for details on the new convention location, accommodation and – most importantly – how to register for MiDFur XI.ACCOMODATION:
MiDFur is an annual Melbourne event that has been running since 1999. When MiDFur became a convention in 2008 it was held at the Victoria Hotel. However, this year MiDFur XI will be held at an even better location: The Rydges Hotel in Melbourne (186 Exhibition Street)
We’ve upgraded from three star accommodation to five star accommodation with Rydges Melbourne. Located in the heart of the city and a ten minute walk from either Parliament Station or Flinders Station, Rydges Melbourne is the sole location of the entire convention. This means that if you have a room at Rydges you can wake up and already be at MiDFur.
We’ve negotiated a MiDFur attendee discount for the five star, two person rooms: $149 per night. This rate applies to both the two single bed rooms and the rooms with one Queen sized bed. To get this rate just mention “MiDFur” when you phone and make a booking. Note that you can only claim this discount with a phone booking.
The phone number is 1300 857 922 when calling from Australia, 0800 446 187 from New Zealand or (+61 2) 9261 4929 for overseas callers.
For more information about Rydges Melbourne, visit their website here:
There are limited places, so we encourage people to register as early as possible to secure your spot at MiDFur XI. You can register for MiDFur at the official website: www.MiDFur.com.au
These are the three different types of registration available:
This gives attendees access to all of the main events of the convention. This includes the panels, the dealers den and events such as the Gala Ball.
Under 18 ($165)
This registration gives under 18 attendees the exact same access as standard registration attendees. Even the Gala Ball will be open to all ages this year. We just ask that those under the age of 18 register as such for legal reasons; namely duty of care and to ensure that under age attendees aren’t drinking.
Gold Class ($265)
The Super Sponsor registration allows you to attend all of the events at MiDFur, with the added bonus of a dinner event prior to the main part of the Gala Ball, an exclusive t-shirt and an exclusive panel with the guests of honour. Note that the Super Sponsor registration is available for attendees of all ages.CAN I HAVE A FREE REGISTRATION?
Sure. The 100th person to register will have the nice surprise of finding that their registration is free.
WHAT IF I’M ONLY FREE TO ATTEND MIDFUR FOR ONE DAY?
Then you can purchase a day pass for MiDFur. The prices vary slightly for each day and note that day passes purchased at the door are $5 extra. The prices for pre-registered day passes are as follows:
$50 - Thursday MiDFur day pass
$60 - Friday MiDFur day pass
$40 - Saturday MiDFur day pass
$50 - Sunday MiDFur day pass WHEN CAN I REGISTER?
Registration opens this Friday, April 10th, 2009.
The specific times for each area are as follows:
In Victoria, New South Wales, ACT, Queensland and Tasmania:
Friday, April 10th from 9:00am
In South Australia and the Northern Territory:
Friday, April 10th from 8:30am
In Western Australia:
Friday, April 10th from 7:00am
MIDFUR POSTER & TRAILER
The theme of the convention is At The Movies. In keeping with this theme we have put together a trailer and are releasing a series of poster designs that have been given the furry treatment.
The latest poster design is based on Watchmen and can be seen here:
And here is the MiDFur trailer:
MiDFur last year was a fantastic event and we hope that you’ll come along and make it a fantastic event again this year. Because for all the work done in providing an enjoyable location, events and guests – it’s the people who make a convention fun. Should you have any questions or suggestions, you can post on the MiDFur forums found at www.Forums.MiDFur.com.au

Well I finally decided to take the plunge and actually try to make some fur friends IRL, had to do a bit of digging to find that there actually are organised furs in Brisbane, hurrah.
This is my 4th year living in Brisbane now, it is still as awesome as ever. I'm a student at Griffith Nathan campus doing multimedia.....4th year doing a 3 year course....so slack I am.
Anyways I was wondering what the go was, I am kinda new to this whole thing so if anyone could give me a rundown on what everyone gets upto it would be appreciated very much. :3

You all know about the bushfires in Vic, I dont think there is any need to recap that.

The site is now open for bidding http://www.ausfa.org/auction/

There will be a BBQ at The Cave on that night 6pm start where you can also bid and donate monies
Hope to see you there :)

Mardi Gras 2009 - Furovision
I'm calling out around the world, "Are you ready for a brand new beat?"
Summer's here, and the time is right, for dancing in the street!
I'm sorry. I couldn't help myself.
But it's true, Mardi Gras is just 4 weeks away, and it's time to get
cracking and get you all involved!
The torch has been passed from Dustan and Lupie to myself, and this is
my first time organising the furry float, so bear with me.
This year, the parade's theme is "Nations United", which was a
stumper, but for which we have come up with...
The Furovision Song Contest!
For those of you who haven't heard, Eurovision is an annual
competition held among active member countries of the European
Broadcasting Union (EBU). The competition launched the careers of
stars such as ABBA and Celine Dion!
Our MASSIVE truck will be decorated as a stage, with sound and
lighting once again provided by Ivan (yay! Go Ivan!), and music being
provided by Jes'ad and Techie Fox (who've been very amused going
through past entries to the competition... like this Ukrainian Drag
- I laughed so
Now, we will be providing a Furovision T-Shirt to participants, along
with a confetti launcher tube to be let off at Taylor Square or the
Bobby Goldsmith Stands.
So now all we need is people to come and be in it! All fursuiters will
be on the back of the truck. After afew years of experience we know
that no-one can survive walking 2kms uphill in a full fursuit without
suffering badly from heat stress. If you really would like to march
you can in a partial suit as long as your eyes won't fog up.
In order to cover costs we will need a 40 dollar contribution from
each participant. If we get forty people, this will cover most of the
ALSO: We will be needing two camerafurs! Preferable one stills and one
video camera, so if you have either, let me know.
Have a look at the 2006/2007 floats here:
2006 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-aSXHZO_wgI
2007 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4F7jePvFpys
If you can come, please email me directly with your contact details,
and T-Shirt size. Also, please feel free to cross-post this to any
relevant forum you can see that I've missed.
LASTLY: There will be a party after the parade for furs at the
Collosseum (the home of Techie Fox, Yuumei Doragon, Harley Coyote and
myself). complete with High powered air conditioning. Even if you
can't be in the parade, come along to the party!
Lots of love!

Hey There, I'm New
Hey there, in case the big heading didn't give it away I'm new here to the brisfur community. For those of you who don't know me my name's Harrison or Silver as most of my friends in the furry world call me. I live in Launceston, Tasmania (I'll show you my scar if your lucky =D) but moved here around 2 years ago from Toowoomba. Although I moved i still consider myself a Toowoombanian, seeing that I lived there for around 14 years I spent the other 2 in Brisbane =D. Anywayz to make a long story short I joined Livejournal a few weeks ago to post my artworks on and they are available to view in my gallery. Sorry for the small number but they were the only few that really worked out and I deem good enough to post here =D. I plan on whipping up a few more pics and any idea's are welcome. If you do give me one though and I do end up posting it here I will recognise you somewhere wherever I can.
