It's Video Day, Kids

We found this article and the accompanying video interview of director Spike Lee interesting, and thought you might too. Harvard's Henry Louis Gates can be a tad too fawning in his interviews, and we think Spike Lee sounds like a fool about half the times he opens his mouth (I'm especially recalling his idiotic debate with Clint Eastwood over racial diversity in movie casting, where he came out sounding really lame). But having said all that, his work does of course merit serious attention (my favorite is his epic take on father-son conflict, He Got Game). He'll just never live down that fateful decision to have Mookie throw the garbage can through the pizzeria window, evidently to his lasting frustration. Meanwhile, The Onion has only gotten better, funnier and sharper as it's moved its fake news franchise from written format to video clips. We found this one to be simply hilarious. But enough about us. We'd love to learn about a video or two that you've found noteworthy lately.

Oh man... Onion videos. I'm addicted already!

They certainly can become addictive. I can see how someone could spend a couple hours on that site.

I was also going to post a hilarious video about the Segway, but figured it might be a little too much of an inside joke. More about which later, if anyone's interested in that subject.
