If you haven’t bought your Halloween gifts to leave under the Halloween tree yet, why not consider a copy of The New Vampire’s Handbook: A Guide for the Recently Turned Creature of the Night, written by five former Onion writers who go by the name of Action 5?
I had the pleasure of interviewing Action 5-ers Joe Garden and Anita Serwaki at the Onion offices in Manhattan back when The Onion offices were still in Manhattan, that is. The paper has since moved to Chicago, but Joe, who was the features editor for 19 years, chose not to make the move with them.
So please enjoy this video from a simpler time, back when Onion headlines were written on chalkboards on the walls of this room, and every Friday, comedy nerds and random actors who do voice-overs on Adult Swim shows dropped by to get snockered on cheap whiskey and precariously climb the roof.
See that R2D2 toy on the bookcase behind us? He is now the entire Onion staff. Who knew! He did. Oh, he did.
