 Edmond-Fran├žois Calvo. The Beast is Dead.       Invasion.   This has a drift one can catch. I would really like to get this. From what little I can learn the cow is Dutch, the rabbit French, clearly a British bulldog, a tuxedoed  American Buffalo, and the white bear is probably a Russian.  The middle foreground figure might be a Zouave, a member of the North African French Union, although it looks like some kind of 'roo.  This art is out of hand.   Hitler, Goering, and Goebbels.  Not offensively subtle.    Using adorable animals to make a point really works.   Hess gets mentioned. Liberation!    What did you do in the war, daddy? Edmond Francois Calvo, 26 August 1892 - 11 October 1957.      

The Bottle Imp

There was a man of the Island of Hawaii, whom I shall call Keawe; for the truth is, he still lives, and his name must be kept secret; but the place of his birth was not far from Honaunau, where the bones of Keawe the Great lie hidden in a cave. This man was poor, brave, and active; he could read and write like a schoolmaster; he was a first-rate mariner besides, sailed for some time in the island steamers, and steered a whaleboat on the Hamakua coast. At length it came in Keawe’s mind to have a sight of the great world and foreign cities, and he shipped on a vessel bound to San Francisco. This is a fine town, with a fine harbour, and rich people uncountable; and, in particular, there is one hill which is covered with palaces. Upon this hill Keawe was one day taking a walk with his pocket full of money, viewing the great houses upon either hand with pleasure, “What fine houses these are!” he was thinking, “and how happy must those people be who dwell in them, and take no care for

   Since Feb. 14th 2020 our anthro art and writing collective Hybrid has had 37,557 views.  Two and a half years later, it is time to surrender to the inevitable.  These last few months have been marked by almost no viewers, a blog administration that refuses to answer inquiries or questions about their multiple site problems, and once even being shut down and flagged as malware due to the perception of the people who run blogger that we had posted hate speech, which didn't happen.  We have never posted hate, vile subjects of any nature, extreme violence or pornography.  I have no idea why the views dried up, but they have.  I wish to thank every single artist and writer that made this idea happen, the only form of payment was publicity and now that's gone.  For some time now I have quit asking for contributions, without viewers that's like begging for free art and everyone here knows how irritating that can be.  I wish to single out my co-owner Andibi for comi

I packed my lunch with care, I'm not always hungry in the mornings but knew I would be after a few hours in the canoe.  I had oatmeal and coffee anyway, I need to get in the habit of eating like a normal person.  While I have my license, I didn't bring my fishing gear, I don't like fish and I don't like hurting animals of any kind.  I also put in water and a cold six pack of beer which completely filled my icebox.  While I don't sunburn, I brought a wide brimmed hat to wear if the light became overwhelming as it so often does on the water, with that and sunglasses I would be as protected as I needed to be.  Because I sweat the wind should cool me if I got too hot, sweat mats my fur but it does allow a breeze to cool me somewhat.  The main thing about being on the water is to not overdo it, the canoe is very heavy and it is easy to wear oneself out paddling that thing.  But it will hold about 900 lbs, it may be clunky but for any kind of serious boating this thing is
