12oz has gone through a makeover, so at the same time as we announce their new design, we also take our time out to mention this really interesting post they made about Asend: 12 questions. We also added some images from the update and did a extract of his most prominent comments.

I liked seeing writers get up for years without knowing who they were or what they looked like – you’d have to know somebody who knew somebody who would one day introduce you, and if you were lucky they’d show you their shoeboxes full of flicks. Shit you couldn’t find anywhere. On the other hand, social media has made it easier to network and appreciate other people’s work from out of state/country and I really like that. I just hope young writers coming up don’t rely solely on the internet to learn what blood sweat and tears teaches you.

We continued painting but every time we turned around the light rays in the sky shifted position. We never found out what it was but I’m glad I had a witness that night. The rest of the stories involve crackheads making sweet love and gangs doing what they do…
