I'm 28, I'm not old, yet. :D

I just like classic/retro media.

I’m 22, I like listening to podcasts... it make me seem younger or older if I mention it’s the one the super best friends do? (Youtubers for those of you not familiar with them

What do want to see happen because right now I can’t tell where this Chapter is going? I want something supernatural to happen but I’m starting to worry.

I'm 26, but the idea that a format that I grew up on is essentially lost to history for today's youth. Hence why my feeling old, while there, is what I call "illegitimate."

When you say things like "today's youth" you are officially old.

It's halloween. We should see something a lot more threatening than unibrow man and VHS's, which although truly frightening are not very threatening. So far the only scary thing about this chapter is the fact that there is still a video store that is still open. Although props for the set up of the store. It definitely has that infinite maze vibe you usually only see in creepy old libraries. Like the further you go the less likely you will ever escape. oooOOOH. :roll:

I'm older than VHS. I remember when watching movies at home meant actual film. And I only knew one person who had a home projector that could handle full length movies.

Probably. My father always tells me how they could never afford a home projector

If that happened it would be a really quick story. They get home look at it. Look at each other and go "ummmmmmmm..... what is it?" THE END.

Although according to my timeline there should be five strips left. "Scaredy Cats" actually ended on NOV 1 so.....we shall see. We haven't had a chapter so short since "Snow Joke" which was six. If this does end on Halloween it would be eight strips long.
So we can either keep making fun of obsolete technology/how old we all are or we can a quick plot of they take a movie home it's cursed or whatever and we all learn a valuable lesson.

I miss Tiger. I know that has nothing to do with this story but we haven't seen him since 2016 (I don't count that one-off from January)

Oh, please, when I first learned of the furry fandom, I thought to myself, "guess it's one of those things for the younger crowd."

Not only was I incredibly wrong about that, I want to say that I was 19 at the time. :roll:

I don't really hang out with people younger than me if they're not family. Online is a whole different matter.

Used to try shadow puppets in elementary school whenever we got the rare chance to use the projector. The stopped using projectors in my schools by fifth grade, around 2002. It was fun. :)
Also, Mel Blanc, as in "The Man with a Thousand Voices?" That's pretty impressive!

Since were sharing, I was 22 when I discovered the furry fandom. Partly because I didn’t have internet til I was 18 and in college. At that point I discovered the world of online anime. :D I’ve never considered my age to be a deterrent for anything. I’m young in body, mind, and spirit.
It wasn’t until this past June I started interacting with people online. :?

I think I joined it... year or two back? Technically think I’ve known about it as far back as that one episode of CSI “fear and loathing” (which can I say, is hilarious in this time period even if it was pretty insulting back in the day.) but I only really engaged in it recently

My first "OMG I'm Old" moment was asking a co-worker where they were when Apollo 11 landed and they answered "I wasn't born yet".

I've decided to ignore that nonsense.

found the fandom in 1997 and attended my first con in 1999. Found it not online, but in a book. "The American Journal of Anthropomorphics #4". Got my first computer in '98. It was cutting edge with an awe inspiring 2 gig hard drive. From there I found the newsgroups like alt.fan.furry and art sites like YERF, VCL and Furnation. Some of the comics I followed back then are gone. Ozy and Millie, Mynarsky Forest, Class Menagerie, Suburban Jungle. Seen a lot of artists I liked fade away, leave in disgust, outright die and some just vanish.

Been a long journey, but it goes on.

That's my biggest fear about this comic. I'm afraid Rick is going to die or vanish and we'll never find out any of the mini-mysteries he's put in the comics over the years or simple things like King's actual age. Then there's Tom Fischbach who does the TwoKinds comics. I'm afraid he'll die before Flora has her baby. Twelve years she been pregnant. TWELVE. YEARS. The comic has been around for fifteen years. According to my math it'll take another six years. Thank god, Bailey had her pups in a realistic time frame.

If Rick does decide to end the comic he should have a Q & A page on the forum. You get one question so make it count.

I’m sure you mean well, but I’d just worry about not knowing what happened to someone whose work I got so invested in. I’ve never liked the idea that only comes up online of not knowing if they are still alive if they ever stop talking to you and others. Also, I think King’s age in his dog body is something Rick doesn’t intend to answer, how would you even organically even bring that up... also, man knowing Markiplier at least knows about furries if nothing else (its kinda up in the air if his brother is a furry or not) is not something I figured I’d find out in my lifetime

Just went to see Halloween in theaters and it suddenly dawned on me:

If by chance these two are going home to watch a horror movie, i'm under the impression Grape never seen a horror movie at home before with anyone and Peanut is going to be a good snuggle buddy for this. She may have heard of Halloween H20, but did she watch it? Guessing this movie might just be a whole out of left field horror movie. also.

Also, this leaves so much of a good brick joke. Peanut helps Grape get use to horror movies, then she helps Max, who helps Bino, who helps King...

Okay last chance to guess what kind of movie they’re going to rent. What will become of them as they begin their decent into the unknown tale of horror brought to you by the “Movie Palace” * ominous lightning

There one last thing I wanted to ask before we move on? What was up with the alt-text? I didn’t get that joke?

Not sure I've ever heard of the term brick joke. It any different from a running gag, like the one with waking up always happening?

So the classic brick joke is a long series of jokes about different professions building houses. Eventually there's a mathematiacn or engineer who calculates exactly how many bricks would be needed, builds the house, and there's half a brick left over... so his friend asks what's that for, and the mathematician says "that's for luck" and throws it over his shoulder.

Then later on someone in another joke gets hit by "the brick from a previous joke".

It's not like a running gag because it's clearly a one-off set-up.
