The Aurora Theatre Shooting

The events of the horrific Aurora Theatre Shooting unfolded on July 20, 2012. The shooting transpired during the midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises and ended with unthinkable losses. 

James Holmes, the sole perpetrator, initially entered the theatre and bought a ticket to the film, sitting in the front row. Approximately twenty minutes into the movie, Holmes exited the theatre through an emergency exit door. He propped this door open with a plastic tablecloth holder and proceeded to go outside to his car. Inside of his vehicle were protective tactical clothing items and multiple firearms. Holmes changed into the protective clothing, which included a gas mask, a ballistic helmet, a bullet-resistant throat protector, a load-bearing vest (which was not additionally bulletproof), bullet-risistant leggings, a groin protector, and finally a pair of tactical gloves. While at his car Holmes also retrieved the guns that he would use in the attack; a 12-gauge Remington 870 Express Tactical shotgun, a Smith and Wesson M&P15 semi-automatic rifle with a 100-round drum magazine, and a Glock 22 .40 caliber handgun. 

Holmes then reentered the theatre through the same door he had propped open and entered the auditorium, wearing headphones and playing “techno music” as to not hear the audience’s reactions. He first threw two canisters that discharged a gas or smoke. This smoke caused eye irritation and obscured vision, as well as itchiness to the skin and throat. After this Holmes fired his 12-gauge Remington shotgun at the ceiling, then at the audience. He additionally fired his semi-automatic rifle, but it soon malfunctioned. Holmes lastly fired using his Glock 22 handgun. 

Holmes began shooting at the back of the auditorium, then towards people in the aisles. Three people in a neighboring room were hit by a bullet when it passed through the wall, and that area was subsequently evacuated. This room was also screening The Dark Knight Rises. Meanwhile, back in the auditorium where the shooting was taking place, the fire alarm began to sound. The scene was in complete chaos, and some were hesitant to flee due to shouts of an additional shooter in the theatre’s lobby. The first calls to 911 were made at 12:39am, with police arriving in 90 seconds. Some individuals reported the shooting on Twitter rather than calling the police, but officers were already present at the theatre when these tweets were sent. 

A total of 76 shots were fired by Holmes in the theatre; six of these were from the shotgun, 65 from the semi-automatic rifle, and five from the Glock 22 .40 caliber handgun. When Sergeant Stephen Redfearn, one of the first police officers on the scene, arrived, he decided not to wait for ambulances. Sergeant Redfearn instead sent a number of the victims to the hospital in squad cars. At approximately 12:45am, Holmes was apprehended behind the theatre by Officer Jason Oviatt. He stated that Holmes was calm and “disconnected” during his arrest. 

12 people were killed in the Aurora shooting and 70 non-fatal injuries were reported. 10 victims died at the scene and two more died at local hospitals. Four of the victims, Jonathan Blunk, Matt MqQuinn, Alexander Teeves, and John Larimer, were killed while protecting their girlfriends. Two of the victims were active-duty service members.

Two federal officials had stated that Holmes had dyed his hair red and called himself “The Joker”, but authorities later declined to confirm that statement. However, three days later at his first court appearance, Holmes had reddish-orange hair. Authorities found a first aid kit, as well as spike strips, in his car. Holmes later claimed that he planned to use the spike strips if police chased him or shot at him. Police interviewed a grand total of 200 witnesses during the investigation. Holmes was first incarcerated at the Arapahoe County Detention Center under suicide watch. 

The Aurora Shooting had claimed the largest number of victims of any mass shooting in the history of the United States, but was later unfortunately surpassed by the Orlando Pulse Nightclub Shooting in 2016, which had a combined total of 102 casualties. The Aurora Shooting was the deadliest mass shooting in the state of Colorado since the Columbine High School Massacre in 1999, which claimed 13 victims, not including the two perpetrators who committed suicide after their attack.

- He asks Virgil to blast that music as loud as he wants and Virgil smiles and turns it all the way up

- While Virgil does air drums (with startling accuracy) Pat just pretends to play the guitar and jumps around a lot. Even Virgil has to admit that it’s super adorable

- After like fifty of Virgil’s songs, he asks Pat to play one of his favorites, expecting like, country music, and Patton turns on “Kick Me When I’m Down” by Sleeping with Sirens and Virgil just What the fuck

How was the concert last night and what happened? I went a few weeks ago and it was so good!

if you asked me this in person, i probably couldn’t even form coherent sentences. i have not stopped talking and raving about this concert since it ended.

the whole concert was fucking phenomenal. i love saint motel and misterwives was lit, but i cannot piece together words in a sentence to describe how i felt when i saw panic! for the first time. i have waited so fucking long to see them and i finally got my chance and it was something i will never forget. for four hours last night i forgot about all of the stress and negativity in my life and focused on the music and i have never felt so happy and at peace

overall, here’s how the panic! concert went: brendon’s a god and even more beautiful in person and i got to touch him and he acknowledged me and fucking hell i will never get over it. and his fucking high notes??? i got chills about seventeen times and yelled “fuck me up!” more times than i can count. kenneth was amazing and dallon is so fucking tall and talented and dAN THE DRUM MAN KILLED IT. i cried during girls/girls/boys when i seen the hearts light up the entire arena and at the end of the song beebo gave a speech and ended it with “aND DONALD TRUMP CAN SUCK MY DICK.” LIKE BRENDON URIE, AMERICAN HERO AND ICON. and then THIS IS GOSPEL AND THE COVER OF BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY IS SOMETHING I WILL NEVER FORGET holy fuck i cried many many times. also brendon drumming is 100% hotter live than i imagined. but the whole show?? everything!! was!! perfect!! it was so worth the yEARS of waiting. also i got a shit ton of confetti but ended up giving most of it away to people who weren’t in/around the pit with the exception of a couple pieces. we got to meet Zack after the show and he was hella cool, he’s so intimidating when you look at him but he’s so fucking nice oml we cracked jokes and shared puns and it was really nice omg i love him. and then we rolled out windows down and blasted a fever you can’t sweat out and vices & virtues the entire drive back.

so basically.. it was a very successful night and one of the best nights of my life. my throat still hurts and i can barely hear anything but i will never forget last night.


“It’s a handshake. You are going to be my buddy, right?”

“I’m no hero. I prefer to go by the Mighty Sun Fighter.”

“You’re now officially my biggest rival.”

“I’d much rather you’d be my friend!”

“It’s just that thing he said, that winning is everything. I used to be that way too.”

Introduction / Friendship

Everyone Gao met in the first five episodes.

~ Oh My Devil


Unlike other protagonists would in his shoes, Gao never cared before that he couldn’t use Future Force at will. Not once has he ever questioned how to master it or has the thought even crossed his mind. He has yet to go into anything thinking “if I use Future Force here” or “I need it” because power isn’t important to him. It’s only when he realizes that he can’t help Tasuku that he begins to regret it.

Gao’s maturity is one of the subtle things that’s still hella consistent with this show and it’s why he’s my favourite character.

Introducing ‘Lilith’
The cover of our 3rd album designed by @design_weapons.After a year of writing and recording we are thrilled with the growth and maturity of this album. We worked with producer, @SteveEvetts to bring you the rawest form of #ButcherBabies. No auto-tune, 100% real drums, real guitars, real bass and an all out BB assault on your senses. As we know in this industry, these standards are quickly replaced by machines and can eliminate true artistry. We are so proud of the hard work & dedication of our team to create this masterpiece. “Historically, Lilith has become demonized as a representation of promiscuity & disobedience. We, however, see her as a positive figure. A symbol of autonomy, sexual equality and control over our own destiny. She is the supreme representation of the left-hand path woman, independent, having discarded the patriarchal yoke, & not afraid to use all the tools available to her, including her sexuality, to gain the most out of existence. The eels represent sleek symbolism of new beginnings&adventure. With this album we have musically taken a leap through boundaries & landed in new oceans. It is said that a the dream or visions of eels is confirmation that the path we currently lead is the right one. In this new chapter we welcome evolution as we bare ourselves with Lilith.” -Heidi
“When we were thinking of titles for our album, we wanted to find something that embodied sensuality, lust, danger & power. We kept going back to Lilith. We researched Lilith and her origins in different cultures and forms and knew that this figure, once feared but now a beautiful, symbolic middle finger to repression, would be a perfect representation of our album.
The cover art we created along with our artist perfectly pulls together the last year we’ve spent working on Lilith. I’ve always loved water themes. There is something terrifying yet calming about the deep sea; submersing yourself in it could be the death of you, yet at the same time it’s cleansing & renewing. With this album we dove in fully and drowned ourselves in emotion, sexuality and even turmoil, and let the two headed beast we created emerge even stronger.” -Carla

Calico Liberty I

One of the current production(?) carbine modesl of Calico’s helical drum fed 9x19mm firearms. The Liberty I from what I saw on their website is the collapsible stock version with the factory muzzle brake. Note the 100 round drum. In the second photo you can see the downward facing ejection port that spits the empty casing down instead of out the side. These carbines are marked Liberty I on their receivers but when Calico first started business this model would have been known as the M-951.
