Actual Malice


Back when I lived in Manhattan, I knew slightly a guy who called himself Michael Malice, who was that rara avis, a hardcore Objectivist with a sense of humor. Now he edits the hilarious Overheard in New York weblog and, I've just learned, is being immortalized in a Harvey Pekar graphic novel, Ego & Hubris: The Michael Malice Story. Looks like it'll be entertaining.

  1. Hee hee that’s a pretty funny blog. One more thing to keep me from accomplishing anything at work. Thanks for the link.

  2. Freaking hilarious! Stupid people are funny.

  3. An Objectivist with a sense of humor? Perish the thought!

  4. Kind of like a Scientologist? with a sense of humor about copyright law.

  5. In Michael Malice’s own words:
    “I consider myself an anarchist and an elitist. Meaning I do not recognize official social hierarchies, but I am aware that such hierarchies naturally and inevitably exist.”
    Julian, what makes this guy an Objectivist? If he uttered a statement like that at an ARI gathering, he’d be shamed, cast out, pissed on, and he’d probably end up wearing his ass as a hat.

  6. Been reading Overheard in NY off and on for about a year. Freakin’ hysterical.

  7. Overheard in NY is the best blog on the Sometimes you really wonder if people are this stupid, then you go out in public.

  8. An Objectivist with a sense of humor?

    A is A. There, how’s that?
