THROW YOUR PAWS UP

Bucktown Tiger is a seemingly average guy who, for unfathomable psychological reasons, likes to dress up as a tiger, and then perform rap songs about dressing in animal costumes at "furry" conventions for other people who like to pretend to be animals. He has several albums available of hip-hop tunes detailing furry life, with song titles like "Get Fursuited Up," and "Get Your Yiff On," "yiff" meaning furry sex. Two people who resemble, say, a Disneyland employee dressed like Mickey Mouse and the San Diego Chicken having sex is, to me, fairly incomprehensible. But, apparently, it happens. The varieties of human experiences!

Tiger plays keyboards and raps simultaneously when performing live. This song is taken from "Orange + Black: The Furst Album."

Bucktown Tiger: "Throw Your Paws Up"

Hey, I'm not here to judge. They're not hurting anyone, right? Go get 'em, Tiger.

I thought he'd prefer Dixieland jazz. "Hold that tiger, hold that tiger...."

Furry sex "happens?" That's not what the ones that show up on TV news every so often say...who's right, I wonder...?

Mr Fab said...

well, I looked up "yiff" and all the definitions I found say that it means furry sex. Oh, the research I do for this blog!

I would guess that what furries tell the media is spun so that the furry life doesn't look perverted, but since Tiger performs for a furry audience, he can let it all hang out. (The "wookie" post I linked to features a pretty explicit song)

Checkin this out with the roommate, and we were totally enthused. Then we got to wondering where he's from. Drumroll....Little Rock! I lived in Little Rock for five years, and still live about 40 miles away. I could not BELIEVE I had not heard of him. We're talking about booking a show right now...

Nathan: a show for a general (not necessarily furry) audience? Wow, if that happens let me know how it goes.
