Morning Hangover #19: Raymond's Shocked By The Twilight Love And Patrick Applauds Them


Posted July 24, 2009 - By r_pad

Welcome to "Morning Hangover" -- an excellent way to start your day with the crew at TheFeed...no matter what you're recovering from. Every morning you'll hear musings from two of TheFeed's editors and have the chance to share your thoughts on what's going on in the gaming world. So buckle up, thank Highfather it's Friday, and keep reading!

Raymond Padilla: I want all of you to know, that I'm writing today's entry for your own good. You see, after reading your replies to Patrick in yesterday's Morning Hangover, I was under the impression that most of you hated Twilight. Yet the live blog for the Summit Entertainment Comic-Con 09 panel -- featuring Twilight -- was immensely popular. I was actually shocked by the numbers it did. While I can't share the exact figures, I assure you that it was huge -- I'm talking as-big-as-some-E3-press-conferences huge! So while I'm sure that some of you truly despite Twilight, I'm betting that some of you pretend to hate it, but secretly enjoy it. Today, I'm asking you to do one of two things. Either describe -- in great detail -- why Twilight disgusts you or come out of your Twilight closet.

(On a related note, yesterday G4tv.com's Billy Berghammer told me that he liked Twilight. Thankfully, I wasn't drinking anything at the time.)

Patrick Klepek: Oh, Comic Con. There's so much to love, so much to hate. My second year at Comic-Con has been an exhausting but satisfying trip so far. I haven't been able to check out or read up on any of the movie or TV-related panels, but when your job requires you to write stories about video games who brag about conceptualizing a section inside the butt of a giant three-headed dog, maybe there's not that much to complain about. Comic-Con is smelly, busy and big, but it's never been anything but. It's entertaining because it is so ridiculous and this year has been no different. Even James Cameron isn't safe from the horrors of Comic-Con -- look at what happened to his Avatar panel, thanks to the Twilight fans! Never change, Comic-Con, never change.

TheFeed gang wants your thoughts on gaming, tech, whether Star Wars nerds are mightier than Star Trek nerds, and more. Let everyone know what you're thinking and chat it up with your fellow readers. Leave comments on anything and everything that's on your (gaming/tech/nerd) mind! The reader with the best comment will win an autographed copy of Twilight (though it might be autographed by TheFeed's Stephen Johnson).
