it's a practice thing

slightly weird wind player practice tip of the day

working on a piece with lots of technical sections and very little room to breathe? play it after running in circles or doing jumping jacks or push-ups, or just any other physical exercise that’ll get you out of breath. then mark the places where you had to take a breath while playing it, and practice it over and over breathing in those same places every time.

Chuck and Penelope like to play a lot of fun bitey games with each other! This is a good time for them, but it can be startling to a silly human like myself. How does one tell between fun bitey game time and actual aggression between dogs?

I’m not an expert aaaaaat aaaall – but some big clues that it’s play vs. something more intense: 

  • loose, floppy body language (which is possible even when it’s rough and there’s bared teeth and growling, giving kind of a “HAHA AM MEAN DOG IS JOKE ONLY” feeling to the whole thing)
  • taking turns initiating
  • taking breaks, backing off in response to each other’s calming signals
  • taking turns in different roles (e.g. chaser vs. the one being chased, being pinned vs. doing the pinning)

Some good videos on the spectrum of appropriate dog play:

I think it’s easier to see the difference once you’ve seen examples of play going over the line. This channel has good examples to learn from:

The Facebook group Observation Skills for Training Dogs is a great place to learn too!

わたしの獣 真山勇成編 (Watashi no Kemono • Mayama Yuusei Hen)

Venerdi has announced a new CD in the works!

Synopsis (Paraphrased):

For the purpose of research, you, a smut manga artist, have purchased “certain goods”—only to have them be discovered by the local deliveryman, 真山勇成 (Mayama Yuusei). 

But just as you are about to explain yourself, Yuusei becomes flustered and runs off… 

After this incident, you find yourself growing closer to Yuusei, a physical and lively type whose personality contrasts with your own.

“I’ll carry you to bed promptly and courteously. I know I look this way, but I am known as the best delivery driver at my workplace for a reason. Well… this is the first time that I’m carrying something for my own purposes, though.”

And so, here is the humble, normal love story between you and Yuusei.

I know a lot of you don’t know since you’re new followers and I deleted all of my old posts, but this is my art from February of 2016:

This is from recently:

The first picture is a little embarrassing, but hey, it shows how I’ve improved. There’s still a lot I don’t know, but I’m proud of how much I’ve done in a year.
