This past weekend’s biggest news wasn’t about the arrival of Guermillo del Toro’s latest film PACIFIC RIM(a lil’ more on that film later),but rather on genre writer/journalist Lianne Spiderbaby(MacDougal) having been entangled in a controversy of her own.
Best known for raising a loud rant about how the useless,needless,and truly boring remake of I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE heavily disturbed her(for its rape and muder scenes) that was heard around Fangoria magazine’s social media forums and sites(as well as writing for places such as Famous Monsters Of Filmland and FearNet),Lianne has now gotten herself deep in the controversy of plagarizing someone elses’ writing(and placing her name upon a few of them),for plagarizing is a major sin to all those in the writing field(whether they be professional,amateur,or blogging scribes) that can permanenetly damage your career should you foolishly take upon it,with Lianne recently admitting on her Twitter page about her commit of plagarism and her regular workplace Fangoria(and its editor Chris Alexander) having addressed that she’s just submitted her last article for the zine and is leaving both fango and the world of writing,since her current beau happens to be Oscar winner Quentin Tarantino.
I fondly remember seven years ago when I loudly made plans to self-publish a book(of my very own),for Christa Faust may have foolishly cried out it was fake(It Actually Wasn’t) but the project folded due to the likes of lack of funds,my PC(at the time) having massively crashed on me(therefore losing the entire written book-to-be),and the world of self-publishing and publishing itseld having quickly become a dead format(my notes for the book[about a college-based sorority house of female werewolves]) lay deep inside my crowded storage bin which would be an awful lot of work to uncover and re-wriet(into book format). My book may have never seen the light of release but I least I didn’t pull out an Orpah Winfred on people(where she frequently had fake writers posing as guests) nor have I ever committed the sin of daring to plagarize someone elses’ work(to permanently doom myself as a writer).
Otherwise,there’s no need for myself to criticize or severely trash Lianne Spiderbaby,who actually did the job of shooting herself both in the foot and mouth when it came to the sin that she laid upon(and paid the ultimate price for).
