This literally came out of the blue into my inbox this very second--from a friend who shares the Cultur'd Appreciation for Japanese Originals :snooty:

I assume it's pronounced 'mutt' as in mix of shit (dog wise) --and not 'mut' as in a genetic malformation.

No, really.
There is always outrage about something. w/ harry potter it was the christians and witchcraft, with twighlight it was prolly the same thing only because it was teenaged vamps having sex. I think Lenny Kravitz will be great as Cinna. I don't know about Rue and Thresh but I am sure it's fine. yeesh.

Rue was so sweet, Lenny was perfection, and you only see Thresh once.

They don't have beekeeper suits in the future?

Can't make makeshift ones with some fabric and swimming goggles, or whatever?

I'm not an engineer. I've never even sewn fabric before. But if motherfucking death bees were released in a conflict, I'd be cutting up some blankets and crudely stitching and duct taping them together into a suit.

Some words seem to have changed over time in the story world. Morphine is morphling for one example. Muttation is another.

when they're in the arena, supplies are limited. They have to fight for them, or fashion them from tree branches or what not. Or if they have sponsors in the Capitol, a little parachute might come down with some medicine or something that the person needs. because the whole thing is televised live and they know these things.

Depends on what you want to talk about. The capitol building is in the nation's capital.

I didn't mean the games, but back during the war. The origin of the critters doesn't make a lot of sense*; now if they were created for the games, that'd be plausible.
