Say a warm welcome to "One Minute News, a video-based online start-up conceived by former MTV advertising executive Doug Greenlaw—and his son, Mack, whose resume also includes a stint at the ostensible music network." Haha, ostensible. Haha, working with your dad. Anyway! Mack said that "we love Gawker, we love the Huffington Post," but they "don't seek to overshadow or muscle out any pre-existing entities." Well they might! Big words, launch boy. True, they are proactive and in your face with their snackifying media programming! Presumably this is on the Internet somewhere, if you have the attention span to find it. I couldn't, just the BBC's own "One Minute News" program and some other stuff, and I couldn't Google up Mack Greenlaw either, unless he's the voice of Garris Cain in the Battlestar Galactica videogame. I hope he's cute though, that's such a great name! Right? Maybe I'll look him up on Facebook later. Or maybe there's something in the fridge? HEY MOM. MOM, IS THERE ANYTHING IN THE FRIDGE THAT ISN'T GROSS? No don't come in here, THIS IS STILL MY ROOM, MOM. Anyway, I'm sure they'll totally house the Internet.
