Nothing is original!

Boston-based rennaisance reporter Joshua Glenn is a genius. This show he's produced, Braniac audio slideshow puts the Rarebit Fiend under the microscope.

The classic 1906 comic strip written by Winsor McCay demonstrates so aptly that nothing is original.

Everyone's borrowed from someone e.g. Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Few artists e.g. film makers are original.

Rather reminds me of how Tarantino films were disected and found to contain several reference - some shot for shot of classic King Fu flicks.

Any please please watch this and chuckle. Thanks Joshua
