Interview with Rosh: The Mad Lad Who Stole Kabier’s @KabsCorner Twitter Handle.

Author: Indigobang!?

As many of you know Kabier, the former owner of the @KabsCorner handle on Twitter, was an ostentatious self aggrandizing bigoted nightmare of a human, whose exploits include trans erasure, racism, sexism, transphobia, and homophobia.

And with shit takes such as calling SonicFox a N***** F*****, and creating art with the phrase “Everyone Deserves Human Rights” in protest of a meme that sported the phrase “Trans Rights Are Human Rights” as her bread and butter, Kabier set herself up for her eventual removal from the furry community with many groups and individuals coming together under the same resonating idea.

No matter how good her art is, she is not welcome here.

With that in mind, who in their right mind would ever dare to adopt such a shitty twitter handle with such a harrowing past? Would they be just as bad if not worse? Did they do it to grab the attention of people who were eagerly looking to take a bite out of the “FUCK YOU KABIER” casserole?

To answer these questions I decided to sit down with the man and get a feel for who he is in an effort to answer questions that many may have about this mysterious individual who rose up out of nowhere.

Below is my interview with Rosh, the absolute mad lad.

(I)ndigobang!?: Hello Rosh, I’m with Dogpatch Press and OwO What’s News!?. I was made aware of the fact that you have come under the ownership of the @KabsCorner username and I’d like to see if I can’t set up an interview with you. Please let me know whether you would be interested in that or not at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your time. ~Indigobang!?

(R)osh: Hahaha oh man, that’s so cool. I’d love to do an interview! Though it’d have to be through text because I’m not a very eloquent speaker.

(I): Thats perfectly fine.

(R): If you already have stuff in mind, I’m free right now.

(I): Let’s start with the basics. Who are you exactly? Like how would you describe yourself?

(R): I’d describe myself as an artist from the Philippines! That’s the thing that comes readily to mind, followed by “several lizards stacked on top of each other.” I’m sort of a shapeshifter 😛

(I): So you’re a scalie?

(R): Yeah, you could say that! I’ve a kobold for the better part of two, maybe three years. Right now I’m an incineroar, which was originally because of different December, but I’ve just fallen in love with the design.

(I): Is that the Bara fetish talking or just a regular appreciation for the overall design?

(R): I’d say both! I mean, incineroar’s normal design communicates the usual appeal of “big buff dude” without actually defining a lot of his muscles, so furry art fills in those gaps with the muscle definition you see regularly with incineroar art. It also helps that Smash Ultimate came out and rocked every furry’s world with his animations.

Example of Rosh’s art.

(I): Have you thought about doing art of King K. Rool? He’s pretty bara.

(R): He is! Especially with his chest and belly made of gold. Though, I’m actually not that good at fan art most of the time; Incineroar sort of popped to me because his design was already sort of compatible with the stuff I already make.

I’d like to draw Bowser, for example, but I can’t seem to nail it in a way that doesn’t look like I just pasted an illustration of bowser’s head onto a hunky body.

Not art made by Rosh.

(I): Aside from your own artistic credentials, were you surprised by how much attention you garnered by jacking Kabs account name?

(R): Honestly, I was just expecting the tweets to blow up. I didn’t think over 500 people would follow me over the past 3 days! I think I was at, like, 1.3k followers before I changed my username. So the attention from the tweet was expected, but not all the people deciding to stick around for my content.

(I):Thats pretty awesome. I’m glad to see people flocking to a person deserving of the attention instead of the old nuclear waste that used to own the handle.

(R): Thanks! Turns out the one downside to deleting your twitter so people can’t report you is someone like me can snag your name and still clown on you.

(I): I’ve heard you’re a transgender individual is that correct?

(R): Yep! I’m masculine nonbinary. I used to be a lot more exploratory with how I present, but I’ve had to go back in the closet for safety reasons. A surprising amount of my friends (who I thought I was out to) didn’t actually know I was trans until I made That Post, which caught me off guard. Though it’s probably my fault for making my kink roleplay talk indistinguishable from my shitposts.

(I): I mean if they can’t accept you for who you are…are they really your friends?

(R): Hah, not that kind of surprise! Just more of, “oh, I had no idea! Sorry if I made you uncomfortable before.” Part of my masculine identity sort of evolved from not wanting to burden people with my jumbled mess of an identity, which isn’t something that usually happens with trans people I don’t think. I just chalk that up to one of my other weirdnesses.

(I): Your friends seem pretty cool.

(R): They’re so cool. If I could, I’d invite them to a party, but I actually don’t know a lot about throwing parties. It’d probably just be a lot of sitting around eating pizza and showing each other memes on our phones.

More examples of Rosh’s art.

(I): When did you join the furry fandom?

(R): Hmmm. Time’s always a tricky thing to ask me. I have schizophrenia and sometimes the past just feels like a big ball of yarn in my pocket. I wanna say I really got into it around 2014, when I was starting college. I made an F-List and fell face-first into roleplay.

This was, admittedly, not a smart thing to do in hindsight; I wound up doing a lot of gross things (hypersexuality sorta does that). But I did meet some awesome people during that time. I started a tumblr blog (RIP) then migrated to twitter two years ago, roughly, and I’ve been around ever since.

Though I will say that I’ve been interested in funny animal people for as long as I can remember.

(I): How old were you at that time? Mid 20’s?

(R): I was 18 I joined college pretty much right away, I’m 22 now 😛

(I): Do you have a mixtape? Can I listen to it? If so where?

(R): I used to make music! I keep telling myself I’d get back into it, but I just focus on art nowadays. I have some tracks posted on my newgrounds under the username Spoonitate. I also have a soundcloud under the name YVNGSL_ME, https://soundcloud.com/yvngsl_me which was also my old twitter handle. (It’s pronounced Yung Slime. The “I” is resting because I’m always tired.)

(I): Awesome! What do you do for a living outside of the furry fandom? If you’d rather not say that’s perfectly fine.

(R): Outside the furry fandom, I’m a tech columnist for a newspaper. I’m not saying which one, but it’s a Philippine newspaper! I write about videogames, mostly, and sometimes I get invited to preview events. Last year I was invited to a Detroit: Become Human event here in the Philippines and a Spider-Man event overseas.

Sometimes I get to review (and beat!) games before they come out, like with Detroit, Spider-Man, and God of War. And last thanksgiving I had the honor of being the first person in the Philippines to beat the demo of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice at a media party I was invited to, which I wrote about.

I posted about it on this account when it happened! Here’s the link: https://technology.mb.com.ph/2018/12/07/sekiro-demo-done-twice/

More Rosh art.

(I): What other hobbies do you have aside from the furry fandom?

(R): Videogames! I like to roleplay, too, sometimes. But I guess that doesn’t count since it’s still furry related. Hmm, I’d say all my hobbies link to furry on some level.

(I): Are there any projects you are currently working on? Also, Are you open for commissions?

(R): I’m currently working on a few things already! I can’t say what they are, though. It’s a secret. As for commissions, not at the moment, sadly. If I was more business-minded I would’ve cleared my queue before getting all this attention, but I’m not an opportunistic person when it comes to money.

(I): As we wrap this interview up is there anything else you want to tell the people about? Any shout outs?

(R): If this were a video interview, I’d be making a Casey Frey impression right now. “What’s poppinggg, AAAUGH?! Shoutouts to… followers, AAAAH.”

For real, though, I wanna say to all my trans siblings out in the furry fandom; nobody’s untouchable. I won’t lie; I’m glad Kabs decided to fuck off forever when she figured out Twitter wasn’t going to stand for her bullshit. As a trans person, watching famous people get away with transphobia is a crushing experience. I never looked up to Kabs but I’ve looked up to other artists who wound up being transphobic.

When the world’s stacked against you, you learn to take the small victories like a trans person of color claiming a racist transphobe’s username and parading it around like a head on a pike.

And if I can be petty; I wanna give a big shoutout to kabier for giving me the chance to take her username! Hope you have fun when you realize the furry fandom’s the only fandom out there willing to pay massive amounts of money to artists to draw their personal characters. Wishing you and your 3-digit newgrounds follower count the best!!

(I): Thank you for your time Rosh.

(R): No problem 🙂

Interview w/ StixilFox Host of the “Breakfest Fur Dinner!” Podcast.

Author: Indigobang!?

Those of you who do not know who StixilFox is or what his podcast is even about may be surprised to know that you have already seen this man’s work at hand.

You see, StixilFox was directly involved in the Kero the Wolf controversy and the subsequent arrest of notorious zoophille Snake Thing. He and his friend SpicyCavy are also responsible for the mass collection of screenshots of PKrussl that (at least according to the screenshots) heavily implies that PKrussl has an interest in cub porn.

This man has been working tirelessly to rid our community of both people who have interests (and in some cases convictions) of harming children and animals and if that wasn’t enough, he and the other members of the Breakfast Fur Dinner podcast also regularly do charity streams for The Global Animal Foundation.

So in the interest of bettering the community and shining a light on an up and coming fur who has done a lot of work to help make our community a safer and better place, I decided I would sit down with StixilFox himself and get a feel for who this man really is.

Below is my interview with StixilFox:

(I)ndigobang!?: Alright Stixl, you’re a pretty chill dude. Mind if I interview you and ask some questions?
(S)tixilfox: Sure! XD

I:What brought you to the furry fandom?
S:Oh wow, I gotta go back haha. So like, I’ve considered myself a furry for years, but didn’t have a sona until late August 2018. Star Fox was what got me interested in anthros, Sonic too. I would say that I found the fandom my freshman year of highschool, so 2011 or so 😀

I: That answered my next question of when you joined the fandom so ON TO THE NEXT QUESTION!
S: OKAY XD

I: How did you come up with the idea for your podcast?
S: Ummmm. Okay so long story again. When the Kero the Wolf zoosadism stuff came out, I was the second-in-command of Furvengers, which was the only group advocating for police involvement with those groups. We started the podcast the night SnakeThing was arrested to let everyone know the old “ladies and gentlemen, we got em”, and it sort of evolved into a friendly thing. Since the people I worked with became close friends to me ^^ But yeah, it all started because we put that fucker in jail lmao.

I: Did you ever think your podcast would become as popular as it is today?
S: Pffft, my podcast ain’t popular. xD I do wanna do it more though and put more focus into it soon. I’ve just been busy and low key dealing with some depression related stuff. uwu Plus my new house has slow internet. We’re working on it!! XD It’s not really popular though. But it’s fun so that’s why we do it. 😀

I: How did you first get involved with the furry sadism bullshit? Like how did you join the furry avengers? Or is that a touchy subject?
S: It’s a complicated story! Short version: I did my own stuff with like 50 followers lmao. I got a little archive of Kero liking/RTing animal maw pics that I shared around that got the attention of Zennie, Patch, MythicalRedFox, and ChipFoxx. Dogpatch then invited me to a telegram group where they were working on stuff. It sort of died, and he then invited me to a new group called Furvengers, led by GrizzlyFatalis and mcbittypaws. That’s where I met my friends and we got a lot of work done and put Snake in jail and got the FBI on the others 😀

I: Thats pretty awesome that you started off with just 50 followers and decided to take down Kero and those other asshats. That takes a lot of courage to be willing to deal with all of his brain dead supporters.
S: It was a grind but it was nice to meet friends from it. ^^

I: Aside from the furry fandom is there anything else you’re really interested in? Sports? Cars? Hot fem-boys?
S: Yeah, music, retro games, hot fembois ofc.

I: Do you have a mixtape yet? Also due to all of the bullshit going on has your view of the furry fandom changed any?
S: No mixtape. XD And nope! I still love it here! If the drama ever is too much I just ignore it. 😀

I: Thats a great way to look at the furry fandom’s drama I think. I had a rough head ache when I tried to do an article on Kabier and Jasonafex and took a 4 hour nap due to all the stress.
S: Yep, stay out of the drama and it’s better. 😀

I: Outside of the furry fandom, how else do you earn a living? It’s okay if you’d rather not say.
S: I’m a professional musician/composer and music teacher!

I: That’s awesome. What kind of music do you make? You should send me a link to your mixtape. :3 (I call people’s musical works their mix tapes.)
S: MIXTAPE XD I do classical, jazz, and game music. 😀 I just put up an album for pre-order. uwu It’s all music I did from high school! It’s at http://stixil.bandcamp.com

I: Nice! Anything else you want to tell people about as we wrap this interview up?
S: What is the audience for this interview? XD I didn’t know this was an actual interview haha.

I: Oh hell yeah it is. I work for both OwO What’s News!? and Dogpatch Press.
S: You do??? Patch is actually a friend of mine haha. 😛

I: Yeah! I’m a free lance journalist working pro bono with Dogpatch. I also own and operate OwO. I think you’re an interesting person who has the potential to rise up in the community so I figured I’d do an interview with you about stuff people might want to know.
S: I’ve never done an interview haha. It was fun! Thanks!

I: Is there anything you want to tell people before we end this thing though? Any shout outs?
S: Uh…. Shout out to uh….cute bois! 😀

I: Thank you for your time Stixil. ^w^
S: Yeah man, thanks! ❤
