Hacks Who Hit the Big Time

1. Joss Whedon

2. Marilyn Manson

3. J.D. Salinger

Hack who most assuredly did not hit the big time: me.

Hey Hey Hey, You are not a hack! I've been a faithful if sporadic reader for sometime now and I like your writings. So stop comparing yourself to Manson. At least you don't need fake implants to get attention.

I would like to go drinking with Joss in the worst f'-ing way!

Jessica said...

I don't think that you or Manson or that bad!

What about Milli Vinilli, or Paris Hilton?

Thanks, Aza, but it lends credibility to criticizing others if you lump yourself in. :) Besides, people liking you doesn't mean you're NOT a hack. At least 2 of these guys have more money than I will ever see, and the other has more devotees.

He's probably a really fun guy, Amanda. I just don't like his writing much, other than Toy Story.

True, Jess, there are innumberrably more hacks who are rich and famous, but those three sprang to mind, and have been longtime irritants to me personally.

Also, I would've responded sooner, but occasionally Blogger jacks up with regard to me getting emails aobut people commenting. Sorry.
