An Original Project

"Originality itself is sourced. It comes from the idea that culture is a conversation. To wish for anything else is a kind of death impulse. To say that things shouldn’t come from other things is to want there to be no things."

- Jonathan Lethem, who's backing up his words with the Promiscuous Materials Project, in which he offers his stories to "filmmakers or dramatists to adapt...available non-exclusively -- meaning other people may be working from the same material -- and the cost is a dollar apiece."
