This Dominatrix Deer Dancing at an '80s Furry Convention Is What the Internet Is All About

What is the purpose of the “World Wide Web”? Some would say that it’s to facilitate the free exchange of ideas on a global scale. (Hah!) Others might argue that it serves to democratize the tools of mass communication. (LOL) Personally, I believe that “on-line” exists to bring us videos like this:

Recorded in 1989 at a test gathering of ConFurence (the first exclusively furry fan convention), the video shows early fursuiter Robert Hill dancing in a “Bamboid” dominatrix costume inspired by the work of artist Jerry Collins. More importantly, it’s ill as hell.

In past decades, such footage might be left to degrade in a forgotten corner, never to be enjoyed by the public at large. Today, however, we can experience a watershed moment of the furry subculture like we were actually there, grooving along to the smooth tunes of Weird Al, R.E.M. and, of course, Peter-fucking-Gabriel. God bless us. God bless us all.
