12:28 am - i will take this as flattery
so i wrote a story a few years ago about a cult that was killing mean people to improve the world. one section had a guy on the side of a highway trying to hitch a ride. he wrote down the license plate of every car that drove past him without stopping, with the plan of later tracking them down to kill them. near the end, someone finally does stop to pick him up, but the guy who stops is also a killer (not part of the cult). oh the irony, or whatever.
i mention this now because i am reading about the Master of Horror series, and it turns out that larry cohen totally stole my idea! dammit

can you prove that you wrote it before him? i don't know if it would even matter, but did you post the story anywhere public?

i feel like there are so many people in the world that almost all of my ideas, as new and awesome as they seem to me, have been thought or done before.

i have no idea when he wrote it. i can prove i wrote it for college because my prof read it. it's nowhere public.
i don't actually think he stole the idea from me, but we had the same idea and apparently it's good enough for a movie on showtime

clearly you need to call showtime and pitch them some ideas.

Except he didn't. Because from what you've said, your guy had no intention if killing the dude that eventually picked him up. :p

well yes, that. and also the fact that i don't think he would've had any way to know my story existed. but still, LARRY COHEN STOLE MY IDEA. mostly i'm thinking that if he gets to make a movie out of it (for showtime, granted), why don't i?
