Califur's 2006 Logo

Califur is a convention that succeeded the long-running ConFurence as the annual furry event of Southern California. Califur is organized by FENEC Adventures. Related events include Califur Train, and Califur Diego. Attendance has grown from 328 in 2004 to 496 as of 2007.

FENEC ("Furries Enjoying the Natural Environments of California") was conceived by Alohawolf, Dawn Britt, and Dennis Carr with the initial idea of having a furry-themed campout. While riding home from the southern California FurBQ, Dawn commented to Dennis and his wife, Karmin, about the lack of other camping events such as Feral! in Southern California. Dennis pointed this out while chatting on the Furnet IRC Network, and Robert took charge from there.

As the campout was being planned, additional staffers including Glen Wooten, Zsanene "Zee" Stevens, Tank "Trapa" Winters, "Drew kitty" along with ConFurence co-founders Mark Merlino and Rod O'Riley were brought on board. With the demise of ConFurence in 2003, Mark and Robert expressed a desire to see a regional convention maintained in Southern California. The decision was made in early autumn of 2003 to plan a traditional hotel-based convention to succeed ConFurence 2003 with Califur 0 the following year. (more...)

Jack hovering over Tet and Trixi

Jack (webcomic) is created by David Hopkins and debuted on 1 March 2001. It has an overall storyline based around Hell, sin, and redemption, woven into individual story arcs. The comic varies between black and white and color presentation, and centers around decidedly mature themes.

Jack prominently features Hell and its Seven Sins, but also Heaven, as well as angels. The two forces do not fight each other much - for the most part they appear to work together without any major problems, although this may be due to the focus on Jack, a rather ragged green rabbit in rags, the most amenable of the Sins.

On occasion, strips are published which pertain to real world events, like the Angry Brian story arc which depicted events similar to those of the horrific Columbine High School Massacre, and which sparked heavy feedback, earning the comic a large reader base. Other features of the comic include the appearance of real places like the former World Trade Center.

The comic can be morbid, but it has its tender moments and optimistic highlights. Not all the characters of the comic are doomed to Hell for eternity. They all have a chance to eventually live on earth again as a test to see if they have "learned" from their previous life's mistakes; if so, they are admitted to heaven.
