    Was this the worst year ever? Of course it was. In a latte-sipping, spoiled rotten, first-world-problems kind of way.

    Hey Adam and John,

    First time listener. Very interesting list of podcast topics.

    In podcast #47, one of you mentioned writing a sketch about a lottery used to keep the population in check. Were you influenced by Shirley Jackson’s short story “The Lottery”?

    I came up with the idea back in the mid-9o’s, then later on learned about Shirley Jackson’s story. I remember thinking that I needed to give it a new twist, lest I be accused of stealing it. Although, I will say amateurs borrow, professionals steal… hehe. 😉

    The experience did reinforce the notion (at least for me), that information and ideas are “out there” in the collective consciousness, and as artists we pick up on them.

    Of course, this implies that there’s nothing truly original in the broader scheme of things. However, I would say that what IS original is our personal take/interpretation of the ideas. Kind of like telling two painters to paint the same tree. The tree is the same, but the paintings will be unique.

    Hope that makes sense. Thanks for listening to the podcast!

    As a jazz musician, that is my personal credo.
