Is it bad that I only use pressed pennies as picks? I like them cuz they don't bend, they make tremolo much easier for me, and they're metal so (I don't know if I'm just imagining this part) the guitar tone I get seems more metallic. Is this gonna mess me up eventually?

its really user preference. i use jazz III's. only thing i see about using pressed pennies is that the strings may wear down faster.
My Gear:
Gibson Faded Flying V
"Dante's Inferno" Iceman
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112
etc.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

If you scrape a pickup too often (like me when I first played a 24 fret) it could wear out the pup
HILT!

Where's Waldo?

Should be fine, seeing as how one famous guitarist (I'll admit it right here and now. I can't remember who.) uses a penny to play too.

You probably can try thick picks if you wish to change, though, since you seem to prefer the pick not bending.

No, I'd only change to a normal pick if it would negatively affect my ability to play if I didn't. I don't know how fast a .60 for the low E is gonna wear out (I tune exclusively below drop A, usually drop G#, on a six string) though.

Then stick with it I guess.

Unless you're really pissed off with perhaps (Because I'm not too sure myself.) replacing your strings more often, I don't think it will hinder your playing.

Billy Gibbons from ZZ Top uses a mexican peso, he sounds awesome =P.
If you're willing to spend a little more money on strings because it's more comfortable for you, and you can control it better, then I say keep going with it.
Gotta finish my work, then play some grooves, so I can turn my room into a house of blues...
