What Should I do #8: Penny Arcade

I am, to put it politely, terribly sick.

Not helping matters is the fact that I just found out that they’re planning a sequel to the Hobbit.
As frequently happens, Penny Arcade managed to sum up my opinions on the matter pretty succinctly. I’m assuming most of you already read their comic, but on the off chance that you haven’t. Well… you’re really missing out.

What’s Penny Arcade you might ask? Well imagine a Geek Gazette, where they lovingly sift and pre-chew the news so it’s easier for you to consume. Remove 95% of all the bullshit and pretention that would normally go hand in hand with that, then add some brilliant, ridiculous humor. Season with a witty turn of phrase and a rage garnish and there you are – Penny Arcade.

It’s nice for me that PA is out there, expressing my opinions on certain issues. That saves me the trouble of doing it myself, and frees up valuable hours for more writing, or, as is the case tonight, being violently ill.

Later,

pat
