And once again, there is nothing new under the sun... [Nov. 14th, 2008|01:15 pm]
For all of you who have ever done a bit or joke or art or tune and either realized, or had someone point out that "Someone Else" has already done it, or something darn near close to it...


It's ALL been done before, my friends...it's just a question of whether anyone recorded it...

Proof positive that if you've gotta steal material, it's best to steal it from the dead.

Also, try the short story "Melancholy Elephants" by Spider Robinson, for a slightly different take on the same question.
