But why do we need scissors?

Because I’m a fan of obscure pop culture references; this one in particular relates back to the classic videogame Metal Gear Solid 2. Late in that game, the Colonel starts spouting off all kinds of nonsense, a glitch in the proverbial AI, and at one point, he blurts out, “I need scissors! 61!”

Taking that reference, I once formed INS Komix, an independent comic book studio that was set to publish such titles as Bounty and Notna. But somewhere along the way, I became a much better writer than an artist, and my comic books became novels. INS (I Need Scissors) still exists, and I hope one day to be able to use it as my own publishing outlet.

“I hear it’s amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with the tuning fork does a raw blink on Hari Kiri Rock. I need scissors! 61!”
