You never appreciate what you have until it’s gone, or in this case less consistent. And no, I’m not talking about the lazy blogging around here on Fightlinker. I’m talking about FightOpinion! Posting over there has been sporadic and short, where before it was like freaking clockwork: a daily dose of delicious linkage to all the mainstream media news you could ever want.
I have a few suspicions on why Zach Arnold has been less prolific lately:
- He got a girlfriend
- He got a boyfriend
- He blew his ass out and spends half his days in a bathtub writhing in agony
Since the dude is a freaking internet ghost (seriously, I’d pay good money for photographic evidence that he really exists), there’s no way he’s going to admit to 1 or 2, and I think I’ve already wrung all the sympathy out of people for choice 3, so he’s fucked on that one as well.
But all is forgiven right now because he just uploaded a freaking awesome episode of Fight Opinion radio. FOR is up there with BetUS radio and Whoop Ass Radio as the only podcasts I listen to religiously (and by that I mean while drinking the blood of Christ or sacrificing a goat). This week’s show is actually co-hosted by super geek Josh Barnett and his ambiguous totally not having sex BFF Shayna Baszler, who both sound like really fun people to hang out with. Jeff Thaler on the other hand is more like that guy you’re only friends with because he helps you out with your paperwork around tax time. Oh I kid. He’s also really useful with legal advice when other websites threaten to sue us.
