The amazing Kresky

The Rockford Files' position as my favorite '70s detective show is of course unassailable. But my favorite fake '70s detective show is now Kresky. This fan site is an incredibly well-done deadpan parody (discovered via Jamie Weinman's excellent blog, Something Old, Nothing New). It's so convincingly done that one can only conclude that the show must have at least aired in a parallel universe, if not in ours.

P.S. I'm totally stealing the name of a minor character I saw in the episode guide to be my new drug dealer name: Good Time Billy Ray. This is, of course, not to be confused with my pimp name, Silky Jones.

I think what's even more amazing than Kresky is just how amazingly useless this post is. Just so we're clear, this post is amazingly useless.

Man, I edited an entire book in one day in addition to producing this useless post. What did you do?

Of course it aired, in Tlön.

Brilliant stuff.

I didn't really do anything today (yesterday). Now on top of posting an amazingly useless post you've also made me feel bad about myself. Way to go! You'll never amount to anything. You're garbage. You're lucky I even go out with you.

(Did I do that right?)

That sounds about right. You could have also thrown in "You're nothing."
