Random Kaufman trivia: at one stage Charlie was considering a possible script assignment, a true story about an Austrian serial killer who was caught and sent to prison, then released only to resume his killing. I sure as hell hope Charlie wasn't going to turn it into a comedy featuring a primate.
Y'know, I mentioned this on the board a while back: read this bio and tell me it doesn't look awfully familiar. A link back to my site would have been cool, but oh well. It didn't particularly grate my cheese when I first saw it - information is information and you can't copyright that. But then I find this and this and I mean really, come on. He even uses the exact same quotes from the same articles as in my bio. Several other nuggets of information had appeared nowhere at all until a couple of sources (who wish to remain anonymous) contacted me and I added the nuggets to my site. Pffffft. A link would have been nice. I wonder if that guy's boss knows he merely spent two minutes Googling then re-worded another web page. I also wonder if he was paid. Baaaaah, grumble grumble. Pity he doesn't offer an email addy. The IMDB took their Charlie Kaufman bio from my site, too (complete with outdated questionable marital info), but at least they have a link back to me. I swipe stuff from other sites all the time, yet I always credit them and provide a link.
Don't forget to check tomorrow's update. BIG EVENT COMING.
