Plagiarizing Daniel Clowes?

And still no one ever calls out Quentin Tarantino.

Mugato: And still no one ever calls out Quentin Tarantino.


It's not plagiarism if you can't stop talking about the guy who inspired it.

Also, dipsh*ts "call out" Tarantino all the time.  They just don't know the difference between "derivative" "homage" and "stolen."

You should take on DJs next, Mugato.  Show them whatfor.

Well, he claims he never saw "City on Fire". Hey, I like all his movies, just sayin.

He just learned from our esteemed elected officials.

TO be fair, at least he admits all his creations are nothing more than a collage of shiat from the last 40 years

I don't know anything about that, but it's moot as the influence of The Killing is heavy enough.  He wouldn't have needed to see City on Fire to make Reservoir Dogs.

At any rate, that's not what plagiarism is.  Accusing Tarantino of plagiarism is like refusing to recognize hip hop as an art form because it's "stealing" from classic soul, blues, and rock.

I suspect we're going to hear a lot more about Shia and "failing to properly attribute" sources once the Internet takes a closer look at his previous publications. In my experience, nobody ever plagiarizes just once. Ever.

By the time somebody gets caught they usually have a large body of plagiarism just waiting to be dug up. And even on the rare occasion that somebody gets caught first time out of the chute, they still invariably go on to repeat the offense. There's something fundamentally wired wrong inside plagiarists, something that they just don't "get" about the process, that allows them to internally justify to themselves what they did, and therefore to repeat.

What you say about plagiarists is true. According to the article, this was Shia's second known offense. The first was when he copied passages from Wikipedia in an email to Alec Baldwin, to apologize for something that had put Baldwin into another of his snits.

This guy is really turning out to be quite a little asshole.

Y. I'm convinced it's a form of sociopathy. I know one guy (no names, no lawsuits...) who has been fired twice from two different firms for plagiarism, yet still doesn't admit to any wrongdoing. Another guy got fired from his editorial gig for plagiarizing his column from me (or more accurately, from the powerful publisher I worked for at the time) just four weeks after his publisher had made him print a front-page apology for plagiarizing previous columns from other people!

.05% of hip is an art form these days.  The rest is horrible.

At work yesterday I heard 3 young black guys in their early 20s talking about music.

They all agreed that west coast rappers really never could "spit" ryhmes or had good flow, that NWA, EAZy E, or ICE Cube were fakers.

They said that real rappers were Jayz, PDiddy, and Em.  They also thought Tupac was from the west coast.

I asked them about Tribe Called Quest, Third Bass, Black Sheep, Wu Tang, and Cypress Hill.

They said that just just old school bullshiat...

Way it's been for a long time.  Still doesn't negate the art form.  Here's some relatively new stuff for you, in case you hadn't heard it already, to brighten your spirits:

Action Bronson

Joey Bada$$


And here's some awesome "old school bullshiat" in case you overlooked it the first time:

Hehe, it's ok. My original work is nowhere near as good and it's all in code. I suppose one of these days when I stall professionally, I'll venture into the TF time-suck I keep hearing about.
