Ok, I see where you're coming from there. I don't think that's an
"art vs. fun" argument though. That sounds like a "what I
personally find fun vs. what earns The Big Company The Most
Money"-sort of argument.
I think you're argument would make for a really good article, but I
don't think Jessica's article was it.
If anything, honestly, it sounds like you're arguing for art at the
expense of entertainment - so long as "art" is defined as "stuff you
like" and "entertainment" is defined as "stuff the valid credit
cards like". If you see what I mean.
P.S. Jesus, I really liked Lord of the Rings. One of those
ridiculous burger king commercials came on as I was typing this, and
I just felt compelled to share that. It was better than gymkata, in
