Eight Reasons the Hero's Journey Sucks

Unfortunately, the Wave-inatrix seems to be at the midpoint of a nasty cold. I've hidden it from you kids so far because nobody needs to see me suffer. But now the secret is out. And that - plus because this is super funny - is why I'm posting high on Nyquil and throwing out a single link to something hysterical instead of, necessarily, commenting on it other than to say I happen to agree.

ShowHype: hype it up!

Why can't we have both?

Is it required that we either worship Campbell and make every story follow his method or that we hate him and refuse to acknowledge the Hero's Journey?

Some stories fit well in that mold. The Matrix, Mad Max, Unbreakable, The Terminator, Back to the Future....

Some don't. I say let the story decide what it wants to be.
