The Onion News Network

Anonymous Philanthropist Donates 200 Human Kidneys To Hospital

I love the Onion. My sister found a book written by them today at the library.

In case you didn't know, the ONN is a fake news website that looks completely legitimate. It's really funny to fake people out with it. My dad was seriously confused for a while when he first saw the website and the bogus titles that were on some of the most recent articles. I'd definately reccomend the video section. :)

A Word Against Posting Song Lyrics as your Facebook Status

Yeah, you might want to actually THINK about what you post on there. Not just because your grandparents are on there, but because the whole world is on there too. And face it--inside jokes DON'T WORK when you share them with the world.

And SONG LYRICS. Oh, gosh. Please, no more.

You'd be interested to know that my step-dad actually called the police on somebody in another state because of their Facebook status. No joke. He was searching around trying to find old classmates from back east when he found the daughter of one of his friends on there; she had posted something along the lines of "goodbye world" as her status. With good reason, my step-dad reported it. Later the next day the status had changed to a long explanation that she did not hate life and those were just song lyrics. Nice.

That, and it's extremely cliche.

Please, for the world, don't be a poser.

Glitter Puke

I have too many music videos and I need to share some.

So here you go.


This one's closer to rock.... ? Norwegian alternative. Adorable. I love Sondre Lerche -- you may know his music from Dan in Real Live; he did all the music for it.

If you prefer more indie styles and tastes, check out Five Years Time by Noah and the Whale.

Going for more Electro Pop?

If you count Andy Samberg as an artist.....

And of COURSE I'm going to put in Lollipop by Korean BIGBANG and 2NE1. Classic.

Don't believe me? Check out the 9 1/2 million views on this YouTube video. Suck on that, Fred. (wretched show.)

And, finally, one of my favorites. One that will surely crack you up. Ok Go is hilarious, and this is another one of their live (even the band is live in this one) music videos that are taken in one shot.

If that doesn't work, go here.
