Ex-Onion Staff and Adult Swim Launch Thing X, “All the Internet You’ll Ever Need”
Thing X, the new comedy website from Adult Swim and a bunch of former writers for The Onion went live today, and it’s full of exciting comedy goodies of every variety. Headed up by ex-Onion editor Joe Randazzo, Thing X, which we profiled last week, is a mix of original videos and articles, all themed around an evil, click-hungry website. The whole site is pretty unique, and it seems unlike anything else out there on the internet. Thing X is only in its infancy, but it should grow and grow over the coming weeks. In addition to the videos, columns, and polls that are available now, an Adult Swim press release indicates that the site will also feature “interviews, reviews, e-mails, blurbs, bleeps, cybersnips, and podcasts,” with folks like Tim Heidecker, Gregg Turkington, Dave Willis, and Paul F. Tompkins making appearances. So, head on over to ThingX.com. There’s plenty of funny, shiny new content there on Thing X’s social networking sites all over the internet.
