I knew George Lucas was influenced by Kurosawa and Campbell, but wow.

Kirby's thesis - which is a remix of a very old saying "There's nothing new under the sun" - is well defended.

But it gets all too circular, because I'm left with the question... what's new in what Kirby is saying... and why is he going to all the effort to say it?

Just a quick note: I would like to move that we further qualify the zombie subgenre into one of two possible sub-subgenres: horror-zombie-runningzombies or horror-zombie-shamblingzombies. It totally changes the feeling of the film if you ask me! kthx!

Jeff L: what's new in what Kirby is saying it is the audience he's speaking to!

That 'very old saying' - "There's nothing new under the sun" is actually from that very old book, The Bible: Ecclesiastes 1:9

But sometimes I wonder how true it is, and does it even have to be true? Don't we 'make it so' when we intentionally derive new work from old with broken reasons like 'people will relate to it' or what have you?

Why are people scared to be truly original? Oh that's right - there's no money in it!

The originality has always been in the *way* the remix is accomplished. Creating is always about the choices made. In a remix it the choices of which sample to cut and which to include- and bingo- it's original!
