Dear Universal Pictures,
You SUCK!

Dear Eric Garcia,
You also SUCK!

Repo! The Genetic Opera is the original organ repossession film. Y'all are just a little too slow on the uptake. I noticed Mr. Garcia's book has too many similarities to Repo! The Genetic Opera. Try again and come up with something else.

Thanks,

Dear Ashley,

Thanks so much for your comment! It's actually kind of exciting to get the first little bit of Repo! The Genetic Opera hate mail. Or is it Hate Comment? Not sure which.

Sorry you feel this way, Ashley, but if you did read the book, let me also say hey, thanks for buying and reading it. Always appreciated.

I understand you love Repo! The Genetic Opera, and that's awesome. I understand you must feel a very deep connection to it, indeed, to spend as much time and energy on it as you do. As filmmakers, Darren and Terrence and Darren (who I've recently met with by the way and think are good guys -- ask 'em about when we all got together) are blessed to have fans like you.

I do think it's too bad you've decided to hate me/our film/Uni/whoever without knowing, well, pretty much any of the facts, or caring that I'm a novelist who's put his heart and soul into his profession for over a decade, especially considering we obviously all found the same concept exciting/interesting and are probably way more similar than different. But you can feel free to pursue said facts online if you're so inclined. If not, I get it.

If you change your mind, I'd love to chat. If not, great; nothing that happens here can change your enjoyment of Repo! The Genetic Opera, and that's the beauty of it. In the meantime, I'll enjoy the release of my book and my film, and perhaps in the future we'll see eye to eye.
