Adios, Arek!

Posted By on Sat, May 19, 2007 at 4:12 PM

Tucson Weekly editorial designer Arek Sarkissian II has left the building. Arek is off to the Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg to sharpen his journalism skills so he can follow his bliss and get back to being a reporter.

Arek and I spent his last night in town wolfing down heavy-duty burgers at Kingfisher before heading over to the Loft Cinema for the late-night showing of The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!, one of his favorite flicks. The movie is a lot like Arek--a non-stop barrage of comedy. It's often low-brow and idiotic, but it comes at you so fast that you can't help but laugh, at least most of the time. I'm going to miss his outrageous jokes, his impersonations, his odd little songs and his general mistrust of authority. Best of luck, you little lunatic!

P.S. Naked Gun is showing again tonight at 10. Go see it!
