I'm a fox. I don't know entirely what it means, but it's real.

What is postfurry? At the very core, it's a way of approaching what identity means.

Furry has been all about answering the question "what if people can also be animals?"

Postfurry says "okay, we can go even further than that. What if we claim authorial control over every aspect of identity? We're animal-people sure, but that's only a starting point. If the poststructuralists are right and all meaning is negotiable, let's go exploring and write some meanings of our own."

"Alice's Restaurant" is a fantastic example of modern Homeric poetry. Check out how many times Guthrie repeats a phrase; that's a touchstone for the story that helps him keep track of where he is. The rhyming and repetition helps get the audience's attention back after a long stretch. Breaks in the music similarly catch the audience's attention.

hey @rey can we import the boosts okay / boosts not okay emoji? I'm pretty sure has 'em

Actually y'know what lemme make a prayer to the fediverse and see if I can find what I'm looking for.

I want to sing more! I am not good at singing! I want music intended to be sung by people with no particular talent!

So please send me your favorite folk songs for unaccompanied voice! Drinking songs, sea shanties, work songs, other folk music I don't have specific names for -- any thing made to be sung by anyone as part of everyday life.

Boosts appreciated!

Also fwiw yes this interest in signing and folk music is very much prompted by re-reading Ancillary

Because hey if Breq can sing despite explicitly not having a voice suited for it, maybe I can too?

Singing is cool because you can do it without any practice or training like most instruments need.

Maybe not /well/, but that's not always the point, yeah?

Maybe I should look up folk songs and try to learn to sing them?

But I don't really know where to start?

I tried looking up one I heard about a year ago and couldn't find it. may have been an original composition now that I think about it

I like MELF parts because no one ever remembers what the acronym actually stands for but everyone just says it's for "Most End up Lying on the Floor" because they roll off of everything and are never seen again.

Huh guess this post resonates with a lot of you.

Really though, are there any songs you'd feel comfortable and fluent singing unaccompanied, while in the presence of others? The answer for me is "no" and that makes me kinda sad.

Also I talk about theology a lot because I think about it a lot, but I want to be clear that I'm like the opposite of an expert.

:shrug: experiential religion.

Take: the dominance that professionally recorded music has gained in the last 100 years has lead to a major winnowing of folk music (i.e. music intended to be performed by anyone, as part of daily life), and that's a significant cultural and social loss.
