Are you watching The Onion video?

If not, then you should be. It only launched a month or two ago, but it's amazing how professional their stuff looks - and how funny it is. (The fact that it looks so real does actually help make it even funnier - it's a perfect parody in every way.)

A couple of my recent faves:

Poll: Bullshit Is Most Important Issue For 2008 Voters

In The Know: Situation In Nigeria Seems Pretty Complex

Medical Miracle: Man Lives Thanks To Heart Stolen From Dead Man

They just recently (like in the last couple weeks) launched "Today NOW!" and that's my favorite video from their small selection so far.

As with any great satire, their videos are hilarious mostly because there's more than a grain of truth in all of them.

About This Blog

This is increasingly not a blog about Alphabet City, New York. I used to live in the East Village and work on Avenue B, but I no longer do. Why don't I change the name if I'm writing about Japan and video games and guitars? Because New Yorkers are well-rounded people with varied interests, and mine have gone increasingly off the rails over the years. And I don't feel like changing the name. I do still write about New York City sometimes.
