Gun graffiti stumps university policeHey, if everybody read The Michael Bane Blog, they'd know these things!
Stencils on walls, sidewalks
Stenciled paintings of red and blue guns are cropping up on walls and sidewalks on the University of Georgia campus, but the images probably aren't as ominous as they may seem.
The renderings don't appear to be the work of typical graffiti artists who spray-paint in freehand style, according to UGA police, who said the assault rifles and revolvers were stenciled onto walls, trash cans, sidewalks and other university property.
Some guns were accompanied by the word "boomstick," but UGA police said they don't know what the word means.
Boomstick - slang for shotgun - appears in a popular video game, "Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick," and also is the brand name for a high-end paintball gun barrel made of titanium.
I do admit, BTW, that I've had a vicious case of A.D.D. — oh, look at the kitty! — this month...too much going on. I'm still in a whirl of contract negotiations that I thought would be wrapped up a long time ago. I'm also at the critical juncture for my web project, DOWN RANGE WITH MICHAEL BANE, right now just a placeholder.
We've gotten incredible response from the SHOT videos we've posted, which has certainly proven the concepts to my satisfaction; we've signed our contracts with a commercial video hosting service, and I'm hopeful of having a beta site open to the public by the end of next week. There are still a thousand questions to be answered, and I have come to hate the telephone. Plus I whacked my back again yesterday — this time pushing the damned snowblower up and down the drvieway! — and I'm hobbling around like an old man. I now purchase more Advil than your average urban hospital.
