Poft Zorn: Furry Fandom / Plushiephila

18 Aug

Poft Zorn isnt for all the words. It’s a voyeur kind of deal. Today you may learn something though that is truly Zorn. 

Plushophilia is sometimes assumed to be a practice common within Furry Fandom, due in part to a 2001 article by Vanity Fair that linked various members of the furry community with plushophilia.

Zornography and sexual activity involving animal anthropomorphism or better yet sex in  fursuits and / or with cartoon animals, sex in  fursuits and / or with cartoon animals, sex in  fursuits and / or with cartoon animals…. sex in  fursuits and / or with cartoon animals…THE END IS NEAR…

“Just like that, yea baby just like that, you throw on your furry suit and i’ma holla right back” -my book of rhymes


**UPDATE** Ok…someone wanted their picture removed…and i found a better picture. Sorry Lokosicek


I Can’t Speak for all Philadelphians: Fake Speed Bumps

18 Aug

I know you have seen these things. They riddle the streets of North and West and other random hoods in Philadelphia. You don’t know what they are. Little orange, blue and white square looking things  painted in the street. Is it street art…dammit red light. Forgotten. Did it get you to slow down. Probrably not really.

These painting are fake me out speed bumps. In the city. They get your attention. You may just pump on your brakes. The program started in Arizona i believe. Here is some true info:

The city of Philadelphia tried in 2008, when it painted images of fake speed humps consisting of white, blue, and orange triangles to encourage drivers there to slow down. The program was called “Drive CarePhilly,” in which 100 major intersections were fitted with painted decals of fake speed bumps. The idea was that the images would get drivers’ attention and encourage them to slow down (at least initially, until they got used to them, and then what?).

Yes then what Philly. These speed bumps cost money by the way….

I really have nothing more to say except this was a waste of money.

Wait, there is more. There are fake images of children (morbid) and fake pot holes in streets to get motorist to slow their roll….some cost $15,000  bucks.

Fake Potholes

VERSUS: Oatmeal Raisin vs Chocolate Chip Cookies

18 Aug

Chocolate Chip vs Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal raisin cookies just sound healthier than other cookies because both oats and raisins are healthy, natural ingredients. However, the other ingredients of oatmeal raisin cookies, namely butter and sugar are still prevalent.

The ingredients of an oatmeal raisin cookie include butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, flour, vanilla, oats and raisins. Oatmeal cookies, like other cookies, contain large amounts of sugar and butter. While these ingredients can be enjoyed in moderation in a balanced diet, they do not have nutritional value. According to the USDA, people should limit their consumption of fats and processed sugars.

Oats and raisins are considered healthy ingredients. One serving of oats contains 4 grams of fiber, which aids in proper digestion. Raisins are dried grapes and also contain dietary fiber, as well as calcium and small amounts of vitamin C.

While oatmeal raisin cookies seem healthier than chocolate chip cookies, the truth is they are remarkably similar nutritionally. Oatmeal raisin cookies contain slightly more fiber and protein than chocolate chip cookies, but they also contain more overall calories and sugar.

Store-bought oatmeal raisin cookies are traditionally made with large amounts of sugar and butter. Baked cookies at home make them healthier. Using less butter and a sugar substitute will reduce calories. Adding more raisins and oats benefits their nutritional value.

Tosca Reno – “A cookie, no matter how clean the ingredients, is still a cookie. It is meant to be a treat…”


Chocolate Chip Cookies aint healthy. They are just good.

No Contest or tie?


What Money Cost over a Million

18 Aug

When you have money you learn money very well…thus if you don’t have money then it may be something you need to learn about love. -Cez’L

One million dollars looks like  this 1,000,000

One thousand dollars looks like is 1,000.


 1,000 x 1,000 = 1,000,000
A thousand thousands (dollars) make a million dollars.

$1,000,000 means 1 million but why does  $1,000,000,000 mean 1 billion

The names of moneys in the American town correspond to the number of periods of zeros (groups of three zeros) that come after 1,000.

The numeral for one billion [1,000,000,000] contains two (Bi-)

The numerial for one trillion [1,000,000,000,000] contains three (Tri-)

It then continues quadrillion, quintillion, sextillion, septillion, octillion, nonillion, decillion, undecillion. At these point one should follow the number of zeros after the 1000 in sets of 3 as stated above. Octillion has, excuse me, would have, 27 zeros, undecillion would have 36.

A kazillion million is made up. Dont deal with the funny money. Make it real like it is.

How Billboard Property Works

18 Aug



Every thing is relative. It’s never hard once you’ve done it a couple thousand times.

Selling space. Using space to sell products.  Getting your point across at 65 miles an hour. If you ever wanted to know how, well here it is…


Locate the property which you plan to place your billboard. It should be visible from a major byway within your marketing region. (very important that first part is, in fact read it again once) If you don’t own the property, you will need to work out a contractual agreement with the property owner for use of the land.

Research the codes, zoning regulations and any laws for the city, county and state; ask specific questions. Many regions have specific guidelines concerning billboards.

Determine if you want to build a wooden or steel structure. A steel structure is more permanent than wood. If you think you may want to disassemble the billboard within a few years, wood is a better idea.

Contact your electrical utility as soon as you can after contracting with the property owner. Work with them to get electricity run out to your billboard location, if it hasn’t been run there already. You will maximize your billboard’s exposure by having it lit at night.

Make a structural plan for your billboard. Contact a carpenter or expert welder to amend your plan and to build your billboard.

Design your billboard. Your audience will be driving past your billboard at 30 to 70 mph, so don’t include more information than they can read. Your logo, contact information and some depiction of what you do is good to include. For instance, if you are in computer repair, you could include your logo, company name, a graphic of a computer and your web address. Bright colors and a clean, clear font work best. If you are graphic design challenged, contact an advertising agency to find an expert who can help you.

Work with a sign company or professional printer to print the poster or vinyl wrap for your billboard. A vinyl wrap lasts an average of three to five years, while posters typically hold up for 45 days. If your design is one that will endure for a long time, a vinyl wrap will be more efficient. However, if you want to change your design periodically, create several posters for your new billboard instead.

Friday Footwear: Gary Payton sneakers rival Jordans’

18 Aug

“Penny has the best shoe line next to Gary Payton next to Jordan” guess that’s why Jordan later sign Gary Payton to his PE’s

Hand Clapp’n, gum chewing, head cock’n, Ish Talk, with some fresh kicks on stealing the ball or laying u up, or the alley oop when he feels like it. #1 he’s got a ring, and was in the Jordan era, # 2 he held his own, # 3 he has an immortal nickname (The Glove) <led the league in steals multiple times> and # 4 it’s GP baby.

Gary Payton is clearly one of the only players to have a signature line that rivals MJ’s and Penny. Barkley had comfort, CWebb had style, Garnet and Allen Huston had technology, Jason Kid had ‘revolutionary’ kicks. Steve Nash didn’t always have the best kicks. VC did not, Mawberry, T Mac, etc, they had a good shoe…not a nice line. I’m talkn like AI made u wanna rock Reeboks over ur Jordans type shoes. Penny, Barkley, Rodmans, CWebbs, FoamP’s, AF1s, Max Airs (notice I dint say Lebrons, or Melo’s (though Melo second shoe still hottest in his line) Amares, or any Cons. GP’s shoes run those out here. Top Tier. The folks at said they wanted those GP Air Zoom 99s back (back when sneaker were sneakers). I say bring em all back.  WITH THE NON RUMOR THAT THE TIM DUNCAN ARE COMING BACK Nike should make moves on GP (and the Alan Huston Foamposites while they are at it)


  • NBA Champion (2006)
  • NBA Defensive Player of the Year (1996)
  • 9× NBA All-Star (1994–1998, 2000–2003)
  • 2× All-NBA First Team (1998, 2000)
  • 5× All-NBA Second Team (1995–1997, 1999, 2002)
  • 2× All-NBA Third Team (1994, 2001)
  • 9× NBA All-Defensive First Team (1994–2002)
  • NBA All-Rookie Second Team (1991)


 Gary “Glove” Payton was in ur face, scoring, slashing, running the floor on some Point Guard *ish. He had is own shoes to boat and he was winning. They had a good shot to beat the Bulls, but you know who, did you know what. He didn’t fade out or loose edge over time. Glove was always relevent until it was time to go. He may not be remembered for his shoes exclusively, but the people that know, know. KG and Barkley is see yal, but it’s GP time.

I Cant Speak for All Philadelphians: Electric Factories History

18 Aug

Richmond Station (Port Richmond Station, Phila, PA)

One of three early power plants built by the Philadelphia Electric Power Company in the early 20th century. It once housed the world’s largest Westinghouse turbo-generator, and its Neoclassical architecture was meant to symbolize that the city had entered an age of electricity. The plant closed in 1985, but its most recent claim to fame was serving as the prison site in the Brad Pitt and Bruce Willis movie Twelve Monkeys. (AND TRANSFORMERS the movie).  It was denied historical designation by the Philadelphia Historical Commission, against the recommendation of its own staff and the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia


Electric Factory Concert$

7th and Willow fool….

The Electric Factory is a concert venue in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania run by the legendary Larry Magid.

The original “Electric Factory” venue was a converted tire warehouse at 22nd and Arch Streets, which opened in 1968. The first performers, on February 2, 1968, were the Chambers Brothers. The building closed in 1973, and was eventually torn down and replaced with condominiums.

Electric Factory Concerts began as a concert promotions firm owned by Larry Magid (never heard of him, legendary though??…he brought many concert to Philly. Philly get more people on the map and people come here to perform like Lady Gaga, Nas, Damion Marley, M.I.A, etc…that kinda legendary for a lil ole venue). It went on to become the DOMINANT concert promoter in Philadelphia. (Philly has stadiums and concert hall and venues galore…dominant is the EF)

The “Electric Factory” was resurrected circa late 1994 or early 1995  in a place which is an actual converted electric factory.

The standing-room-only capacity is approximately 2,500 to 3,000 people, including the second-floor area which overlooks the stage from stage left (if you are standing on stage looking towards the crowd and look left). Spectators in this area often have the bonus of being able to view a portion of the backstage.


PECO is an energy company founded in 1881 and incorporated in 1929. It became part of Exelon Corporation in 2000 when it merged with Unicom.

The PECO Building is notable for its electronic display, which displays the time, temperature, news, and a variety of other community messages in amber-colored scrolling text around the top of the building. At midnight on January 1, 2009 the lights were shut down and replaced with a more energy efficient and more colorful LED-based system which went live on July 4, 2009.
