tokarev73 asked: Dear Neil, Why the swearing vocabulary of your heroes in "American Gods" is so poor? It was the only thing, that disappointed me in that book.

neil-gaiman:

I thought the swearing vocabulary of American Gods was fairly rich, while I was writing it.  I remember how much fun it was to write something like

“Fuck you,” said Czernobog. “Fuck you and fuck your mother and fuck the fucking horse you fucking rode in on. You will not even die in battle. No warrior will taste your blood. No one alive will take your life. You will die a soft, poor death. You will die with a kiss on your lips and a lie in your heart.”

…although it’s probably a bit heavy on the fucks for real richness in swearing. 

I’ll try and swear more richly in the next American Gods novel.

I spent more time yesterday than is healthy reading about the latest vulgar stupidities happening in the Gamer Gate situation. God. What a soup sandwich.
Since it started I’ve wanted to add my voice to the choir of support for folks like Anita Sarkeesian, and all women and men who dare to speak up in the name of equality and fairness. You guys are awesome, powerful people, and I admire you.
But I’m just an inarticulate art nerd, so allow me to express my feelings with this picture. Bao lang is my favorite character in Atomic Robo. She’s a big ball of badass in a tiny little package. Her weapon of choice; the indestructible AK-47 -an international symbol of revolution and social change.
This is for all you Social Justice Warriors, Rogues, Clerics, and Wizards out there. Roll for Initiative motherfuckers!

You guys might recognize some of the thumbnails and a preview from a post awhile back… here’s the finished piece! :D

Done for the charity artbook Memorieal which recently gave us the go-ahead to upload the illustrations we did earlier this year. As a kid I had a flying/gliding bear species based off this stuffed animal (I named them “Pinky Bears” since I was an original precious snowflake). They were the mortal enemies of eagles, and they primarily ate fish — which they stored underground in burrows. Since that’s what bears do.

Is this one about to grab one or shake its fin? WE MAY NEVER KNOW.
