I’m exceedingly pleased to announce that “Romanced by the Futa Centaur” is finally available.

In the sequel to “Saved by the Futa Centaur”, Gennara and Sharronne are dragged from their romantic idyll by a chance discovery. They set out on a quest that takes them back to Gennara’s home city – A city under occupation from a war that drove her from her home when she was just a child.

What they find there will set both of them on a collision course with their pasts.

I tweeted the other day about whether or not to include something awkward-but-real in a sex scene in Futa Centaur 2 (ok, talking about realism in an erotic romance between a futanari centaur and a human might seem to be stretching the bounds of “realism” a bit, I admit).

Save VHS!

Left: Decomposing nitrate film, and, right, piles of VHS tapes set for destruction.

Twitter horror film fan Sluts and Guts recently tweeted about VHS recycling. I don’t know a lot about this: VHS video cassettes went the way of the pianola roll a long time ago (and I believe VHS recorders have ceased production?), and apparently there is now a push to get rid of old cassettes by recycling them.

Sluts and Guts commented:

Fact: There are tens of thousands of movies that were released ONLY ON VHS. There are no digital versions of these films and with #VHSrecycling happening now, many films may be lost forever. #VHSpreservation

This reminded me of another all-but-vanished era of cinema: nitrate films.
