What happened to Hell Yeah? Will you ever return to it?
Real life stuff got in the way for both of us and unfortunately Andre’s not been able to draw much beyond a good chunk of #7. He’s my partner on the book, so without him, I don’t see it continuing. Whenever he’s ready, though, I’m down.
What do you think of cosplay? I've heard of some authors and artists dislike people making costumes and cosplays of their intellectual property. Especially modified. (Fem!, Alternate Universe or otherwise.) My sister and I are going to cosplay Tyler Durden and Narrator re-imagined as ladiesat a local con in the fall- and your blessing and opinion would mean a lot to us!
Cosplay is great. Every time I buy a black turtleneck sweater I think “writer cosplay.” Few things in life are as honest as Spandex. I admired the guts of anyone who can climb into a Spiderman suit.
The phrase “rubber bullets” is often used to describe what are more accurately termed “rubber-coated metal bullets”, heavy steel projectiles with a minimal coating of 1mm or 2mm of rubber, that are regularly used to lethal effect alongside — not instead of — live ammunition.
Rubber-coated metal bullets are fired from metal tubes placed on the end of high-velocity rifles such as the M-16s commonly used by Israeli troops. Tubes contain around 8 rubber-coated, cylindrical, steel projectiles, which are powered by blank rounds fired from the gun’s magazine.
Writing in the medical journal, The Lancet, [doctors] said firing the bullets at civilians made it “impossible to avoid severe injuries to vulnerable body regions such as the head, neck and upper torso, leading to substantial mortality, morbidity and disability.”
They added: “We reported a substantial number of severe injuries and fatalities inflicted by use of rubber bullets when vulnerable upper-body regions such as the head, neck and upper torso were struck.
“This type of ammunition should therefore not be considered a safe method of crowd control.”
