‘Lonelygirl15’ adopts product placement

"Product placement in Web video episodes dates back to 1995 and the first Internet soap opera, “The Spot,” according to its creator Scott Zakarin."

http://www.buffalonews.com/197/story/49870.html

Today on LG15

Today on LG15 fans saw a twist in the tale.
The vlog began with the gang heading towards the beach.

Daniel: Bree, are you sure you don't want me to film? Anyways, so we're out here in lovely (with a Spanish accent) "Mexico". Why do I have to carry the...merse?
Jonas: Because you're the bi--
Alex: Because I said so. (laughter with Daniel and Alex)
Daniel: And Alex apparently says that this is the most wonderful beach in the world.
Alex: It's true!
Alex: First of all, the sand is never too hot. And the water's never too cold. There's shade, so you don't have to bring one of those disgusting tents.
Daniel: Redneck teepee! We sell those at Gas 'n Eats. My family definitely had some. Well, what else makes this the place to be?
Alex: I don't know, memories.
Daniel: Like who? You and family?

When it turned out Alex had been to the beach with an old flame the beast got a little green

Daniel: I am going home! I'm not even going down there.
Bree: Get over it, Daniel!
Daniel: Did you make out under that rock over there? (Daniel makes noise so he can't hear what Alex is saying.)
Alex: No! (Alex starts laughing at Daniel's behavior.)

After some lovely montage of the friends frolicking on the beach, they group headed back to the car. But things were about to get ugly..

Jonas: (picks up a small rock and holds it up to the camera) I'll throw it. (laughs) Let's go eat, I'm hungry!
Alex: Me too.
(Jonas opens the car door, and a black car is seen approaching from the background)
Bree: (from behind the camera) Oh my god...
(Jonas turns around to see the car, then turns back to Bree)
Jonas: Bree! Run! Run to the beach!

In the confrontation that followed Lucy could briefly be seen...

Daniel: (screaming at Alex) Did you set this up? Is this you? Did you do this?!
Alex: (screaming back) It was--
Jonas: You are unbelievable! You are un--you are unbelievable!
Alex: I don't have a choice!
Jonas: Who are you?!
Alex: (crying) I don't have a choice, alright?! I still have to do-- (Daniel holds her face) They're not here for you anyway, they're here for me, I have one more--

And then Jonas pulled a gun...

Jonas: Just stand there!
Daniel: Jesus Christ! What are you doing?
Jonas: Get away from me right now! Get away from me!
(Daniel holds up his hands in defense, but is overpowered by Jonas who is still screaming in his face and waving the gun)
Daniel: Get it away!
Jonas: Get away from me! (Alex is screaming, unintelligible)
Jonas: (to Alex) Go over there! Go with your people!
Alex: ---I can't leave yet!
Jonas: Shut up! I don't wanna hear it.
Alex: (calmed) They're here for me. They don't need you anymore, Bree. They have another girl!

The Order have another girl? Cassie, Maddison...the next runner up of American Idol?

Daniel: Get in the car! (Jonas goes around to the driver's side, still pointing the gun at the black car) Let's go. Dude, put the gun down! Let's just go. (Jonas gets in the car, Daniel starts yelling again) What the hell is going on?! Where'd you even get that thing?
Jonas: (mumbles) Nevermind.
Daniel: (still shouting) What do you mean, nevermind?! We're in Mexico and you have a gun!
Jonas: (calm) It's a good thing I had it.


So what now for the Scoobies and Aunt Alex? Is she really a bad guy or is she protecting them? Stay tuned...

Jonas got a gun...

To the tune of Aerosmith - Janie's Got A Gun ... 

Dum, dum, dum, Alex what have you done?
Dum, dum, dum Scoobies on the run.
Dum, dum, dum, Alex what have you done?
Dum, dum, dum it's the sound

Jonas got a gun
Jonas got a gun
His whole world's come undone
From having ice cream and pizza fun
What did the Order do?
What did they put his parents through?
They said if Bree would do the ceremony
They'd never bother him again
But man, they had it comin' Now that Jonas got a gun
He ain't never gonna be the same.

Jonas got a gun
Jonas got a gun
Danielbeast will be feeling sad
Because it turns out that Alex is bad
Tell me now it's untrue.
What did Lucy tell her to do?
You can join the Spring breakers
And party down in Mexico
But who will come to the rescue? They'll have to sort it out themselves
now that Tachyon had to go

Run away, run away from the slurpee yeah yeah yeah
Run away run away from the slurpee yeah yeah

Run away, run away, run, run away

Jonas got a gun

Maybe she's just programmed and really is a robot
Like QtheC's said all along?

Run away, run away from the slurpee yeah, yeah

Run away, run away, run, run away

His dog day's just begun
Now everybody is on the run
Jonas got a gun

☺ Quentin Tarantino to Appear on Lonelygirl15?

Early rumors of a Lonelygirl15 "Guest Contributor" program appear to be confirmed in this exclusive LG15 Today Blogspot (LT) interview...

LT: Wow, this is really exciting! LG15 Today reporter QuinceTheCarpenter here, talking with the producers of Lonelygirl15, Miles Beckett and Greg Goodfried, and none other than actor, writer, and film producer Quentin Tarantino ! Forgive me if I hyperventilate.
Miles: Don't worry, we are just as excited to be sitting here with Quentin as you are!
Greg: Absolutely! Amanda will be so jealous.
LT: Mr. Tarantino, is it true you are considering becoming a guest contributor to Lonelygirl15?
Quentin: Please, call me Quentin. And yes, it's too soon to announce anything specific, but we are definitely talking about hooking something up here.
Greg: But we can't confirm anything yet.
LT: Great! So, you would be Quentin The Contributor then, wouldn't you? Should I call you QtheC?
Quentin: Better stick with Quentin.
LT: Right. I loved you in Alias, by the way, and I love loved Pulp fiction, and I love love loved Kill Bill Volumes 1 and 2 (uma Thurman is a goddess!), and I'm sure I will love Grindhouse as soon as I see it, and...
Miles: Lonelygirl15.
LT: Thanks. Yes. So, Quentin, (I can't believe I'm calling you by your first name!!!), tell us a little about your conversations with the producers of Lonelygirl15.
Quentin: Well, it's like this. I usually make about a $million or two for every 10 minutes of feature film I write, produce, and direct, so there were some practical issues.
LT: That obviously is not in the budget.
Quentin: Right, so I said, hey, just give me a new Lamborgini and we'll call it even.
LT: And?
Quentin: No go, they came back with an offer of a '79 Ford Pinto with four good tires. I liked the lime-green color and the rust spots were totally authentic - real vintage 70's y'know? You won't find that in Jay Leno's garage. Then they sweetened the pot by explaining I could place myself as a product. I thought, that's cool, so I took the deal.
LT: Sweet. So you will not only be contributing as an actor, writer, and director, you will actually place yourself as a product in the video?
Quentin: Well, we're still working on the details, but a "Tarantino a day keeps the Doctor Away," if you know what I mean.
LT: ?
Quentin: You'll see, it'll be fierce.
LT: Sounds great - I can't wait... and with the practical side settled, what can you tell us about the creative side?
Quentin: I can't say much, but we are talking about bringing in some new characters - TachAphid, Brachyon, and OhBrother...
Greg: Um, I think we better avoid any "Brothers" - just to be on the safe side.
Quentin: Yeah, we're still working on the names, we might go with 'OpOther' instead. But these cats are going to be badasses. I'm really jazzed about 'em.
LT: Sounds awesome! What else can you tell us?
Miles: That's a really great question, I was hoping you would ask that, because there are some things we would like to tell you about, like some upcoming website improvements, that we know our loyal fans are going to find very exciting, but right now, we can't say more...
Quentin: Brachyon is a hot chick with a shotgun instead of an arm, and if the girls like Jonas, wait until they check out OpOther's crazy green laser eyes...
Greg: The rest you will have to wait for.
LT: Dude, you just interrupted Quentin Tarantino.
Quentin: (laughing) I'm also psyched about some original music I'm working on for the show. Kind of a synthetic beat with some cool echo effects...
LT: Wow, I'm ready now! What else can you tell us?
Miles: Well, that's all we can share with you today, but thank you for your patience and we know you will really enjoy what we have coming!
Quentin: Yeah, it's going to rock. Lot's of blood, lot's of attitude. Sunglasses, hand grenades, submarines, maybe a little sex in a vintage diner during a gun battle...
Greg: Um, Quentin, we still need to talk about the sex. The nude scene might be a problem.
LT: Submarines?
Miles: So! Keep up the good work LG15 Today bloggers, we really appreciate your stories!
LT: Thanks so much for doing the interview guys! ...
Quentin: But I didn't tell them about the wild 'ceremony' and the exploding...
Miles: Greg, you didn't tell me you offered him my Pinto...
(guests exit rapidly)
LT: Reservoir Dogs! I forgot to mention Reservoir dogs ... I'm such an idiot!

On the lighter side... Onion RSS feed added to LG15 Today

For those that are not familiar with it, "The Onion" has some really funny stories that suit my, particular, sense of humor. It's not for everyone, and has nothing at all to do with Lonelygirl15, so I put an RSS Feed from their weekly news stories way down at the bottom over on the right column.

For your amusement. Just because we can. Here is just a small example of what I love about some (not all) of the Onion stories:

The Sibley Guide To Birds Has Clearly Misidentified The Dark-Eyed Junco

The National Audubon Society is still gamely endorsing The Sibley Guide, which, to be honest, is no surprise. Those self-congratulatory amateurs are too busy direct-mailing birdie address stickers to anonymous citizens to conduct responsible birding. Those people would accept juncos as finches—hook, line, and sinker. What lightweights. They're almost as bad as the Wild Birds Unlimited people.

Eh, why fight it. A junco is now a finch. Why the hell not? While we're at it, let's call a flicker a type of jay. Harriers? Just lump them in with the hawks. The next edition of The Sibley Guide should refer to robin's-egg orange and say that owl pellets can be identified by their jelly center.

Bastards.

Glenn Rubenstein no longer be working on LG15!

The Creators

Hey everyone,

Thanks for your patience and understanding. We'd like to give you some closure on this issue. For a lot of reasons, we can't go into details, but we can let you know where everything stands so we can all move forward:

1) There will not be a standalone ARG that is separate and distinct from LG15. As we have talked about in the press, LG15 is an interactive ongoing serial that incorporates ARG elements (puzzles, real-world interactions).
2) OpAphid is no longer the official ARG of LG15 and there will be no more LG15 videos featuring OpAphid, Tachyon, or Brother
3) For internal reasons, we have both decided to part ways. Glenn will no longer be working on LG15. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.

Thanks for your understanding and for watching the show. We VERY MUCH appreciate your loyalty, and we have some exciting announcements that you'll be hearing in the next weeks and months. Thanks!

The Creators

Immerse Myself - maddisonatkins

Here is the e-mail that was in the inbox. It is dated Tuesday April 10th. I’ll post some screen shots in 12 hours . . . FYI the myspace, youtube, lonelygirl15, and the revver accounts were all created the same day and I’m guessing by the same person. I think Mr. Zipp is kind of a funny name, but I don’t think now is the time to mask my fear in humor. I’m sort of scared, and I’m not sure what to do. Thanks to those that have helped so far.




Hiding Something? - itscassie

After we made this video, Aima "accidently" spilt water all over my camera. Its not destroyed, but this footage did become a little screwy. I'm even more suspicious of her now.

Today on LG15

Today on LG15 fans saw Jonas cope with the "Uncle Beast" situation by taking Bree out around old Mexico. The vlog started with B&J watching Daniel and Alex saunter along the beach;

Jonas:Not two days we find out she's a good guy and he's all over her..
(Bree laughs) Boom! Its disgusting

Jonas: I'm not calling him uncle... I dont care if they have 50, 60 kids, I'm NOT calling him uncle!

Bree tried her best to allay Jonas's fears.

Bree: I'm sure that his intentions are honorably
Jonas: Are you kidding me? Honorable?
Bree: ..ish
Jonas: Theres nothing honorable going on over there.

So to stop Jonas being sick B&J hit the streets.

Jonas: So we left the (screws up face) lovebirds to their own devices..gross... and we decided to do a little exploring of the old mehico..
Bree: Yes stalking Alex and Daniel is not my idea of fun.

Not without anything to tie them up with anyway eh Bree?

Bree: You're paranoid just let whatever's going to happen, happen.
Jonas: Listen to you! When did you become the zen master?
Bree: Thats right..I found my inner peace (giggling)
Jonas: Yeah well I got one thing to say to you on that one, (speaks fake Spanish..."Spanglish")
Bree: (laughing) That is NOT Spanish!!
Jonas: Its Spanish, its a different dialect.

The next clip showed Bree in a very big sombrero. However she was not trying to copy Daniel's weird mating call. (aiaiaiaiaiai!)

Bree: OK. So in an effort to cheer up Jonas I have adorned some of the local garb and I'm now going to do a quick presentation of then and now... a compare and contrast of our quaint little town in Mehico.

This is where the first residents lived, they were they kumiai indians and they called this place their home.

These are some of todays residents (shots of students running around on the beach playing soccer)
I dont think they know what this place is called.

The Kumia were absorbed by the Spanish missionaries who came here in the 15th and 16 th centuries. They built many stone churches. The Franciscan monks who came to Rossarito Beach had a tremendous impact on the local indian culture.They forced them to wear clothes which they weren't accustomed to and also trade up their tribal rituals for solemn prayer.
As you can see ALOT has changed. I'm sure if you could ask the kumiai indians if they even envisioned their sleepy little quiet town turning into this, they'd reach for the tequila and tell you "Progress is progress". (shrugs)

This was followed by a montage of various shots around the town, including several drunk spring breakers.

Bree: What is it?
Jonas: I've just never seen you being sarcastic before thats all.
Bree: That wasnt sarcastic, I was being genuine.
Jonas: Give me that (takes camera)
Jonas: So what do you have against spring breakers? Come on honestly
Bree: Nothing
Jonas : (mockingly) nothing..say that with a straight face!I dare you...
(Bree get embarrassed and laughs)
Bree: Stop! Nothing!

I guess when you're home - schooled there is no such thing as Spring break.

Stay tuned...

Daniel and Alex are getting close... a little too close if you ask me! So, Bree and I spent some time in lovely Rosarito Beach. - Jonas Faction: THE RESISTANCE Status: PUBLIC VIDEO

Follow The Drugs

Good evening fellow LG15 bloggers. I am currently in production on my latest report. I was inspired by Kanazaka's post on the Forum recently. He delineated a very interesting theory about drugs and it got me thinking! *wheels turning in Nikki's head* So, stay tuned and if all things go smoothly *crossing my fingers* you will have a new video very soon. I'll even give you a clue as to what you're in for - I actually investigated something!

Oh, and I very much enjoyed the song you posted recently. I want my Nikki B! Lovin' that song right now.

Stay tuned.

Today on LG15

Today on LG15 fans saw Alex explain her past actions. She made a video with the help of Daniel. (The beast still likes Aunt Alex!)

Alex: Okay. Umm... as you all know, I had a little heart-to-heart with my nephew yesterday. I've decided he's a pretty cool guy. It's weird, 'cause when I was little, I used to be really jealous of his family. Jonas's dad was always the cool dad, you know? I guess, I guess some people are just born that way. You know, like if you've ever seen those pictures in magazines of, you know, that kind of handsome, rugged guy in a windbreaker, staring out to sea, that was, that was pretty much him. My mom was uh... she was something else. I think Jonas kinda covered it. She was a bit of a fruitcake. (She and Daniel laugh.) Umm... thanks, by the way.
Daniel: What else would she do?
Alex: I told her I wanted to be a pilot once, 'cause I used to like looking into the sky, and uh, I said, "Mom, I want to fly," and she said, "Well, that's nice, sweetheart, but planes don't fly, they crash."
Daniel: Okay, yes, she was a little morbid, I guess. Yeah.
Alex: Just a, just a tad. Later on, things changed. After the fight with Jonas's dad, I really didn't see them that much anymore. I know it's bizarre, but I grew to really like the religion, and my mom toned down the, the zealotry aspect of it, and I dunno, I kinda bought into the whole Meridian thing.

Meridian lines again? Are Order headquarters in Greenwich?

Alex: I loved Jonas's dad. I really did. But my mom is... was... my mom. And uh... I kind of lost it after she died. I mean, I couldn't, I couldn't come to terms with the fact that she was gone.
Daniel: Mmhmm.
Alex: I did some pretty stupid things. There's nothing quite like the exquisite pain of loss to cloud your vision of the past. And the more I... remembered the good times and forgot about the bad, the angrier I got. At God, or whomever had taken her away from me. And then the Order contacted me. They said that Jonas's dad was responsible for my mother's death. They had um, they had pictures. They said it was a conspiracy against the religion. Our religion. (On the verge of tears) It seems silly now, but I just... wanted so badly to find somebody to blame for her death. Anyway, I don't know what else to say. I've recorded the message they asked me to deliver, and um, I don't know where we go from here. But if I can help find Jonas's parents, I will. I could really use a big brother right now.

So is another scoobie road trip on the cards? Are they going to try and find Jonas's folks? Stay tuned....

Today on LG15

Today on LG15 fans saw Jonas hug it out with Aunt Alex. In between a montage of the two of them working things through on the beach Jonas told us his story - (please note I transcribed this before the LGpedia version was up, please forgive any minor errors).

"Ok so I just had a little heart to heart with my aunt on the beach. I know... I know what you're thinking I'm not supposed to trust the bad guys..she's a bad guy, I'm not supposed to trust her. But it was either that or well you know Bree's preferred methods. (makes face at camera)

The thing is is that Alex is my dad's little sister... well technically half sister but, whatever. It all started when my grandfather got divorced and he married this much much younger woman. Alex's mom was..how do I phrase this delicately? Hmmm... a total wack job. Can I say that? Is that mean? But she was and she was one of these new aged fruity types and I remember she was talking about "Jonas! The free will of man and meridian lines" Meridian lines? Now thats like geography. I get that but I dont know what it has to do with the human soul. Anyway my dad said and thought that she was full of er... how do you say it in Spanish? Ca ca? When in Mexico...

So Alex and my dad they became pretty close because until she came around my dad never actually had a sister, she was just at our house constantly and did everything with us just like part of the family, she'd go sailing with us, I mean everything you name it she was there. I think it caused a little conflict with Alex's mom because she was... she was the jealous type I mean it got to the point when she wasn't even allowed to come over to our house anymore.

So when my parents started travelling a lot, uh we didnt actually see Alex that much anymore just holidays and Christmas. I remember one Christmas Alex's mom had had a little too much to drink and her and my dad kind of got into it. They started arguing and they said a bunch of things to each other a lot of weird stuff. Alex's mom started accusing my dad of just some wacked out crazy stuff. They were arguing about something about her religion. She was always very fanatical. It got heated and they both said some pretty awful things to each other. I'm sure that they would have apologised to each other because thats what families do, they fight and they make up but ummm... unfortunately they never got that chance, because later that February Alex's mom got hit by a drunk driver and she died en route to the hospital. Yep, your classic "how could there be a God when something like this happens" moment.

Theres more to this story. During my reconciliation with Alex out on the beach she gave me a little more information. Her moms religion? Same as Bree's moms religion, same thing. And after the car accident, the Order contacted Alex and they used.. they used her basically. They took advantaged of her grief and convinced her that my dad had something to do with her moms death. So Alex said that the Order would help her out once in a while they kind of hooked her up with a job in the fashion line, promotions the whole deal. I guess that when they found out that we were going her way - they called in some favours. They told her exactly what to say in that little speech she gave. I dont know if she even knew what she was doing she was just doing what they told her, she was pretty broken up, I mean she was visibly distraught and I dont think you can pretend...

Are my parents still alive ? I hope so. Alex thinks they are, she feels so bad about what happened, she said she will do anything she can to help us find out."

So Alex could be a good guy after all! QtheC will be stoked!

Stay tuned...

Hug it out

Thankfully, Bree listened to reason and logic prevailed. I had a loooonnnng talk with Alex over the weekend. I think we actually got somewhere. - Jonas Faction: THE RESISTANCE Status: PUBLIC VIDEO
