Centaurica has moved to Tumblr. This blog site is now an archive or “museum” of centaur/manimal related media with very sporadic updates. If you want to see more current posts head on over to Centaurica Tumblr.
My first conscious encounter with centaurs was had while watching Disney’s Fantasia. I was immediately attracted to the burly guys who were half horse. Years passed before I encountered any centaur again and then it was in, of all places, a Danny Thomas television special in the early 60’s. The idea of muscular guys who were part horse again captured my imagination and, this time, never let go.
Over the years I have searched for anything at all to do with centaurs and, for the decades before the advent of the Internet, the pickings were too darn slim. But in 1997 that all changed. I did my first search for centaur material online and, I am happy to say, there has been a steady stream of images and stories ever since.
MMORPGs feature centaurs, as do other PC games. Films like the Harry Potter and The Chronicles of Narnia series feature centaurs. Books such as Rick Riordan’s “Percy Jackson and The Olympians” series feature centaurs. It is obvious I am no longer alone in my fascination with the four-legged studs. And, to my pleasure and surprise, I am not the sole centaur aficionado out there. Other guys love them, too.
I have had, since 2002, two separate group sites devoted to centaurs and now it is time for a turn at creating a blog devoted to them, too.
Centaurica will feature centaur-related media scavenged online. I will give credit and links to artists when it is possible. If something appears here that the original author doesn’t want featured I will, of course, remove it at once. I will also post You Tube videos and my personal musings on the subject of centaurs.
If you are a fan of these marvelous beasts and have things (links, book names, images, etc.) you would like to share, please feel free to contact me.
Thanks for checking out Centaurica. Please subscribe if you are so inclined. If you love centaurs even a quarter as much as I do, you won’t be disappointed with Centaurica.
Since the origin of this blog my life and the world have gone through many changes. It is only natural that Centaurica has changed, too. With the ending of my Blogger blog, Mythulinity (http://mythulinity.blogspot.com), I decided to turn Centaurica into a more inclusive place for manimals of all kind. The original purpose of this blog has now expanded to include a variety of half man/half beast beings such as nagas, angels, mermen, etc. The primary objective is still the same: Centaurs Rule! But now they have a vivid and diverse sea of companions who are in some ways at least like them: sexy, beautiful, and exciting. I hope you enjoy the addition of satyrs, werewolves, catmen and the like and will accept that Centaurica’s existence as a place purely designed for the love of centaurs is past and that the newly burgeoning blog is an improvement.
