Australian actor Tara Rushton, the star of social networking website Bebo's online drama KateModern, will make a cameo appearance in the new series of Forget the Rules, which is the subject of negotiations for international distribution.
Tara Rushton is the actress playing the role of Charlie in the webseries KateModern. Born in Sydney, Australia, Tara wasn't originally an actress, but became a model at age 15, when she went to a Cleo exhibition where a modelling competition was held; she decided to enter and was signed by Vivien's Model Management. Among other things, she was one of the five finalists in the Global Guess campaign, and was named "Miss Photogenic" in the Miss World Australia competition in 2003.
After her successes as a model, Tara moved to London to pursue an acting career, and a mere five weeks later, with no prior acting experience, she was cast as Charlie. She has said in the past that Tara and Charlie are very similar to each other, and that The Creators are incorporating many of her likes and dislikes in Charlie, making the character more realistic and easier to play. An example of this is the choice of music Charlie listens to: "The writers did ask me as a person what music I liked, so Charlie likes INXS, Eskimo Joe, Something For Kate, things like that."
Tara likes the direct connection to the viewers in KateModern, but she's not always sure if people talk to Tara, the actress, or Charlie, the character. She also finds the concept of fan fiction, especially fanvids, "really interesting".
Academically, Tara earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications in 2005.

"WHEN the creators of internet video Lonelygirl15 were outed last year, they claimed they were "witnessing the birth of a new art form". Now you can test their claims, with co-creator Miles Beckett and head writer Luke Hyams in conversation at ACMI on Thursday, November 1. If the behind-camera stars aren't your bag, local model Tara Rushton has returned to our shores after starring in the web-based follow-up to Lonely … called KateModern. Rushton is here to star in Melbourne's MIPCOM-winning online serial Forget The Rules, the second series of which launches next month"
Luke Hyams is the head writer for the webseries KateModern.
At age 14, Luke was forceably ejected from school. From ages 15-20, he went on to study film-making at YCTV in Ladbroke Grove London. During his training there, he created numerous shows, including a chart-show format called "Pass the Mic," which earned YCTV its first terrestrial commission from BBC2 in 2000. "In 2001, Luke turned his attention from presenting to writing, his first project ‘The Hidden City’, was an epic drama about young people living on the streets of London. Hallmark Entertainment enjoyed the pilot episode so much they commissioned a further twenty-one episodes which Luke went on to direct. Upon completion of ‘The Hidden City’ Luke began developing a feature script called Dubplate Pressure while simultaneously overseeing a number of commercial projects. Dubplate Pressure eventually became ‘Dubplate Drama’; Channel 4’s critically acclaimed interactive series which allowed viewers to influence the fate of the main characters via multiple platforms."
Prior to joining the KateModern team, Luke had seen Bree on YouTube, and appreciated it for the individual videos, not realizing there was a larger story. He had also read a bit of the press about the Creators on the internet. He was introduced to Miles Beckett through his agent, Josh Varney from Independent (ICM) and got the job shortly thereafter.
Luke is inspired by breaking down boundaries, telling stories people will enjoy, and Jeff Goldsmith's creative screenwriting podcasts. If he wasn't writing, he'd like to create enormous live events or do transcendental meditation. He has two black cats. His grandmother, Margaret Hyams, played the cameo role of Aunt Joan in the KateModern episode Spiders.

Why exactly was Daniel reading whatweird in the video "Is This The End?"???
If you know, leave a message below and let us know.
Hey guys! Your resident ... medium...i guess you can call me...here.
I've checked out everything, and the vast majority of the stuff on the blog is fraud work. however there is a bit of ... "historical" ... information correct, and a few tidbits here and there that are somewhat real (but more urban legend then anything, for example the bremuda triangle post. I'm actually surprised it didn't ahve the history on it. or Astral Projection. PS It totally can be done, just need a lot of patience). The cam though is something that I have yet to catch I've been trying to find the feed on the listed web site, but you need to register which I really don't want to do. It's an interesting blog, none the less. Really well put together, and enjoyable to read. If anyone has any questions about what you read too, give me a shout.
PS: this probably doesn't help at all everything I told you, but I thought it may help. It seems like it may just be faked to live within the Breeniverse, but at the same time it might not be. Thousands upon millions of these type of web sites exist, and just a pin prick of them seem realistic. This one really doesn't as, like I said before, is more Urban legend related and falsified evidence.
what IS interesting is that within the past... week... this blog has started, got it's own domain AND has "deleted his old live journal"
From the "Is This The End?" transcript on LGPedia, Daniel was interested in teleportation stories on the whatweird.com website.
On that website, there are two articles in the "teleportation" category, both dated Oct 20th, just 5 days before "Is This The End?" appeared on Oct 25th, 2007.
The first article is called "Astral Projection?" and talks about the author's "Mum" (sounds british) being interested in Shirley Maclaine's ideas on the subject, and her book "Out on a Limb" published in the 1980's. There are 4 comments on the article, the most intriguing is this one: http://www.whatweird.com/archives/29#comment-20
October 24th, 2007 at 5:10 pm I totally believe in astral projection. It happened to me. At least, I think so… it was the weirdest thing…"
The second article tells a story about "Gil Perez - Twin or Teleportation?" teleporting from Manila to Mexico City on October 24, 1593 (note the date).
There is a notable conclusion in bold added to the article by the author. It begins: "Did you read that? How amazing would it be to suddenly be transported from like London to Los Angeles? (especially on dreary rainy London day!!!)"
In the comments on this second article, there is more about astral projection, and manipulating energy to teleport (with a link to http://home.xtra.co.nz/hosts/Wingmakers/Teleportation.html )
There is also a comment that might possibly refer to Kate:
October 26th, 2007 at 8:36 am
i’ve talked to someone online who claimed to have the ability to astral project at will. And while i still dont believe them… they did warn me that its quite dangerous. While you leave your body to wander to new places… your body is an empty corpse… ready for any soul to wander in and take over."
The teleportation angle could be a cover - the real story might be that Kate either has a twin, or has multiple personalities in some way... Kate, Genevieve, etc.
The London to Los Angeles teleportation reference seems very likely to be the work of LG15 creators. I think we may be seeing a lead up to a KM to LG15 cross, especially after Kate said she was going to America with Clore to study art.

"Certain producers and broadcasters are taking the lead in the way they use new channels to connect with audiences and capitalise on communities, reaping the rewards through advertising and additional revenue streams".
"Greg Goodfried is Executive Producer and Director of the internet video series Lonelygirl15. Created in the summer of 2006, the videos have received over 40 million views and are consistently the most subscribed to, most viewed and most discussed on YouTube. The show integrates puzzles and hidden clues, and fans can interact with and influence the story by writing comments, uploading their own videos or sending messages to the characters at Lonelygirl15.com. The Lonelygirl15 team have effectively produced a video series with a larger audience than some cable television programs with million dollar budgets. Recently, Greg announced a UK version called "KateModern" exclusive to online social networking site Bebo, coming soon."

This was a group project completed in the Spring of 2007 for film school at Stephen F. Austin State University.
The movie was based on a story given by Professor Arscott about a fallen angel who gets dumped by his woman. I did the cinematography, editing, and a good chunk of the writing. April Rickman directed it.
Starring Rob Senska, Mindy Bledsoe, Annie Rankin, Geoffrey Gibson, April Rickman, Patrick Tollett, and General Hospital veteran Brad Maule.

"Operation Red Sunday" has received a lot of attention recently but who would have figured it could put the RedEarth video "Opportunity Crisis!" on the YouTube home page. 67,477 views and numberous honors seem to have impressed the google algorithm that picks the videos to feature in the recently watched section at the top of the page in "Videos being watched right now...."
Who would have figured that a simple community based action could have such a huge impact!

With help from Taylor and others on the forum, we have cracked Emma's code. Emma was signing using Native American Sign language, and the solution was to take the first letter for each sign as encrypted vigenere text and decrypt using 'theelder' as the key.
In order from the videos:
I, stand, indian, end, deer, deer, red, kill, friend, hard, red, stand, come
The solution: http://rumkin.com/tools/cipher/vigenere.php
encrypted text: isieddrkfhrsc
decrypted text: pleasantmanor
So, what does "Pleasant Manor" tell us about Emma's location?

I know I've been sorta MIA lately and I'm sorry for that. After everything that happened this summer I just threw myself into school. It's been good... I've been taking advanced computer courses and my counselor says I have a good chance of getting into MIT. Of course I'm still playing soccer too. Sam and I aren't as close... she doesn't really understand what I've been through, but that's okay. Not many people have run from The Order like us. As for Sarah, we try and keep in touch. It's hard for me to be cut off from her "adventures," but I know that school is what I need to be focused on right now. I can save the world in a few years.
Okay, now to why I'm really here. I've been watching the videos (how could I not?!) and I really think there's a code in Emma's vids. It's been sooo hard to figure out! I admire all the hard work you guys have put into it. Anyway, I totally agree with lilbit924 - it has to be native american sign language. I think Emma confirms this when she says the word "come" while giving us that sign in native american sign language.
What do you think? Am I on the right track?
Later, Taylor posted:

I had this huge chemistry assignment last night, but guess what? I couldn't focus! I was too worried about Emma and her code. I watched Emma's last vid again and noticed what many of you had pointed out - that she says "the elder" is the key. So maybe we're searching for a vigenere code? And "the elder" or "elder" is the key? If so, we're looking for a bunch of first letters is my best guess.
If it is native american sign language, we need to find the words and then use those letters... Can anyone help me work on this?
hint ... cough ... hint ...

Glenn, live on BreeFM @11pm EST.
If you have questions send them to [email protected]
Huge thank you to everyone who participated in "Operation Red Sunday" It was a follow up to something Virginian9000 posted on LG15.com in response to last weeks show. The idea was to move the IRC discussion to YouTube and raise the profile of the show. When the new Rachel video went up the troops rallied and made it happen. The effect was phenominal. The video has 60,000 views which is insane. It was the most viewed in people and blog for a while and the most discussed. It got twice as many views as the last two LG15 videos which is pretty impressive. It has been more effective than many other forms of promotion so Glenn and Jeromy thank everyone who participated.
The discussion already existed. It took the "meep" factor and put it to good use. It plays within the rules of YouTubes system but it is very effective. It raised the profile for the RedEarth88 series. There are probably 100-200 people who are really passionate about the series in IRC but when you take that and apply it to YouTube it can make a huge difference.
The "RED ARMY" pulled off the "OCTOBER REVOLUTION"! This put RedEarth88 on the radar. The fact the show now has "haters" is awesome because it means it has attracted many many new people. There were about 20 messages to Rachel from people who were talking to Rachel as if she was real.
The "fake vlogger thing": its not so much a do over of the lonelygirl15 idea but in the coming weeks the videos from Rachel and her co-star with take a couple of different genres and re-interpret them. The same is true of the Clara story.
RedEarth88: we get an interesting dynamic because there are so many different characters. For a while on Lonelygirl15 Glenn was not able to do the type of action stories he wanted or even the type of Talking Heads videos that he can now do with RedEarth.
The big surprise: who is the co-star on RedEarth? Who is Aly Zarin. Be prepared for a surprise. She was "very popular on LG15". Enjoy.
OpAphid: had been known as RedEarth in Glenn's original screen play. Name "inspired by" Operation Ivy, the band. Its been an interesting year.
"OutOfGame vs in game": With RedEarth88 there are both narrative elements and more ARG like elements. We define the rules by how viewers react. It makes sense to link all the channels to the RedEarth88 channel. New viewers might not understand that all the characters are part of a series with multiple profiles on YouTube. How would the audience react? On Lonelygirl15 it tended to go back and forth. The Lonelygirl15 account has 5x the subscribers of Daniel or Jonas. If you want people to see a video then you want it on the account with the most subscribers. The problem when all the videos go up on one account is that they tend to canabalize each others views. There needs to be a balance. The "friday Bree video" would always be the ones that got the most views so it was always great to get to write those. The "thumbnail factor" is important but so is the account.
YouTube is not "in game" in the sense that when each log in is the character logging in. The RedEarth88 account has the playlist and if you subscribe to the playlist it will get you every video as its added to the playlist. Should there be links on each YouTube channel? The tag at the end is one component that links everything together. Eventually there will be a web site but the forum on LG15 is a great place for discussions so that it all works together.
LGPeida: we all have the knowledge so Zoey has asked that we all contribute what we know to LGpedia. RedEarth88 will need to be "retro-fit" on LGPedia. Look at it how it this way:
Maddison Atkins - videos up to "No more"
Tachyon vs OpAphid - videos up to "Human Ransom"
15over15 - prologue for RedEarth88
RedEarth88 - up to the current videos
Compare to Marvel comics with "Civil War". You have people with their own stories but they are all part of something bigger. Think of it as a Robert Altman movie. We have interconnected characters. Rachel is tied in with East Texas where Maddison and Clara are from. You can follow them separately or as a whole.
If people want more ARG elements the LGPedia is very important, because we want people to be able to pick up what is going on without having to have played in the past.
What happened with Operation Red Sunday was a great way to break out of IRC. IRC is a great way to communicate but LGPedia is a great way to share the knowledge and attract more viewers. At the end of the day a larger audience leads to the series being more viable.
With 15over15 they were well into planning before they discovered "12 in 12". They try to plan their videos around what else is going on so they have to adjust as new things such as when the upcoming Lonelygirl15 extended videos are released. These series need to be complementary and respect each other so that will affect the release schedule for videos. You dont want to do anything that will spoil another series. Even with OpAphid, Op tended to post on weekends and Lonelygirl15 would post during the week.
Superpowers on LG15: The idea of superpowers had been talked about when Glenn was at LG15. He was however surprised to see it start up at such a late stage in the Lonelygirl15 series. The back story to the existing elements still left a lot of room to explore. It also got a bit close to the comic book "Runaways". It tells the story of 6 kids that get together when their parents are doing charity work. They observe their parents doing a human sacrifice. The kids run away and it turns out they have superpowers. Its a mix of teen angst and melodrama set against the idea that all parents are "evil".
Glenn does not really watch Lonelygirl15 any more because for him its a mixed bag of emotions. Hence, he was not able to comment on detail on their "fake-out use" of superpowers in Lonelygirl15.
New movie idea: Why Glenn needs to run Hollywood. It will be the biggest movie of 2008 or 2009. A sequel to Red Dawn. Imagine this..... the camera pans out.....Patrick Swayze is nursed back to health.......the war iss over........he was nursed back to health and taught the way of the American Indian. Flash forward. He is a wresling coach for example.
Now the meat of the movie. Currently the USA military is stretched beyond its resources. There are some pple with a grievance. What group goes back 200 years and has come into a lot of money in recent years which they have stockpiled?
Spoiler: The American Indians!!!!! They take the country back. An uprising. They take back the country the "pale face" stole from them. Patrick Swayze has seen this all go down before. This time he is torn because of the connection he feels to the Indians. He has to make a choice between his country and his "family".
It's politically charged. It could go either way. The Indians could take the country back and it would be fair. Don't blame Glenn for this if it happens in real life........this is a movie! This time Patrick Swayze takes a new group of rag tag kids to the mountains. They call themselves the Wolverines. We can get all the top teen actors (OC, High School Musical etc). Patrick might get killed towards the end. The best part? ... The movie will be titled "RED DUSK". Who is with Glenn? The American Indians have a legitimate grievance.
Direct to video, at least, this could work. We can get Patrick.
This story idea is Copyright 2007 by Glenn Rubenstein (all rights reserved).
Cowboy update: The deadline for auditions has passed. On monday a poll will be going up on BreeFM to vote for the first cast member. In subsequent weeks other cast roles will be voted on.
The untold saga of the Cowboy: Daniel was missing. The Cowboy appeared to be holding him captive. Who was he and what were his plans for Daniel? It will finally be told as an original radio drama on BreeFM This is a community project and will be cast from within the community.
The auditions are really impressive.
Final thought: the power of the community. "Operation Red Sunday" was an awesome display of force and its inspiring to look at the community work together.

Logan Rapp is the actor who plays Linc in the Maddison Atkins ARG. He is a Broadcast Journalism student at California State University, Fresno, and a former Intern at MacAdam/Cage Publishing. He is the president of his school's B# Video & Film Club.
Logan started making videos under the YouTube account dehteraew, and drew the attention of Glenn Rubenstein. As Glenn told the story on his first Bree FM radio show, he saw the video Pleasantries, and had a case of what he jokingly referred to as "professional jealousy" over its simple concept. The two got in contact, and after Glenn's series, OpAphid, went on hiatus, Logan was insistent that Glenn get it started up again. When he heard about Glenn's opportunity to work with Jeromy Barber on his Maddison Atkins series, Logan pushed hard for Glenn to accept, and offered to help out. Glenn and Logan began working together on the videos on the lofisyndicate Youtube account.

LONELYGIRL15 EXTENDS EXCLUSIVE RELATIONSHIP WITH MYSPACETV
SPECIAL EXTENDED EPISODES TO AIR ON OCT 25 and 26
Follow Up To Season Finale Scheduled With New ReCap and Long Forms
Los Angeles – October 24, 2007 - As a follow up to the wildly successful Season One finale of lonelygirl15 (modelmotion ) on MySpaceTV, the original and most watched online interactive serial drama will air extended episodes – in two parts over the course of two days – in an exclusive with MySpace on Thursday October 25 and Friday October 26 lasting throughout the weekend. At 10am (PST) on each day, the videos will appear on the front page of MySpaceTV and on the MySpaceTV player on www.LG15.com. Heavy onsite promotion will accompany the event. The Season One finale of lonelygirl15 featured on MySpaceTV in August received close to 2 million views. As a bonus to viewers, the Creators of LG15 will include a recap video to accompany the cliff hanger and its conclusion. The Season One re-cap which premiered on MySpaceTV (http://www.myspacetv.com ) generated 1.4 million views during the finale weekend.
As part of the special episodes, cutting edge rockers, Something For Rockets will premiere their new single ”Beautiful Life” from their CD, ONE TRACK MIND (released on Tuesday, 10/23) in the first installment. As a perk to lonelygirl15 fans, the band will make the entire album available for free download throughout the weekend via a link on www.LG15.com or MySpaceTV to http://www.myspace.com/somethingforrockets.
These elongated episodes occur as Jonas’ adopted sister Emma has been taken by a rogue elder working outside of the evil “Order” and is being prepared for the same ceremony that killed Bree in the Season One finale. The clock is ticking on whether the crew can save her.
Miles Beckett and Greg Goodfried, the Creators of lonelygirl15 (and KateModern) state, “We are excited to partner with MySpace to once again bring lonelygirl15 to an even larger audience. The success of the show over the past year and a half has allowed us to increase production values and continue to build upon the compelling storylines which is especially evident in the cliffhanger at the end of the first episode leading into the blockbuster ending in these special extended episodes.”
lonelygirl15 (http://www.LG15.com ) is an ensemble based serial drama garnering on an average of 250,000—300,000 views per episode, with some episodes logging in at over a million views each, for a total of over 70 million combined views. The show was created by Miles Beckett, Greg Goodfried and Mesh Flinders --- a doctor, a lawyer and filmmaker. The lonelygirl15 team, which has grown to include Producer Amanda Goodfried, recently launched KateModern, the story of a hip, British University student and her group of friends as they endeavor into the types of mysteries, adventures and interactive elements that have made lonelygirl15 an international success with almost 17 million views since its launch this summer. lonelygirl15 and KateModern have been leaders in the interactive online programming genre in partnering with major brands for integrative relationships throughout the shows. lonelygirl15 has featured Hershey’s Icebreaker’s Sours Gum and Neutrogena with a character woven throughout months of the storyline including his being voted ‘employee of the month’ and being given a corporate email account of the company’s website. KateModern launched with integrated deals with brand leaders MSN, Walt Disney's Buena Vista, Paramount, Procter & Gamble, and Orange Mobile.

Who is Aly Zarin and who will play the character in RedEarth88?
Aly Zarin is a professional photographer whose bag Rachel grabbed by mistake at the luggage claim after her flight to Southern California from Nacogdoches, where she was staying with her grandfather. Apparantly Aly is a very busy person, as Rachel has been playing phone tag with her in an attempt to get her luggage back. Based on her name, Rachel says that she "sounds like a Russian heiress or something".
Now who will play the role of Aly (if we assume, as most seem to think, she will have a on screen presence). Well we don't know, but on his radio show last week Glenn mentioned that we should expect to see a "familIar face" appear on RedEarth88. Since then, speculation has been running rampant. Now since Aly is a female name and Rachel referred to "she" we can narrow the field a little. So who are the front contenders?
Clockwise from top left: Jessica Lee Rose, Becki Kregoski, Faye Austin, Jackie Jandrell
1. Jessica Lee Rose is the actress that plays the character of Bree in the Lonelygirl15 video series.
2. Becki Kregoski is the actress that plays the role of Taylor.
3. Faye Austin is the actress who plays Maddison Atkins in the Maddison Atkins ARG
4. Jackie Jandrell is a friend of Jessica Lee Rose who played Gemma in the lonelygirl15 series.

You're all wrong about Michelle. She's given me an amazing opportunity to go to America with her to study art and I just can't turn that down. I have to go.
Michelle Clore is an artist world famous for her circle pictures. She is reclusive, iconic and is very rarely seen in public. She has an American accent. She travels with two body guards, dressed in black with dark sunglasses. She claims that she is always interested in what young people are doing creatively and is particularly interested in Kate's dream interpretation videos. She told Kate at the exhibition at the Second Space Gallery that she has made some really fine work, that a lot of people are very interested in her and that she has caused "a lot of buzz". After the shooting incident she thanked Kate for saving her life. When Kate demanded to know what the shooter meant by the Order, Michelle Clore replied "let me show you."
Michelle Clore met with Kate immediately before Kate's disappearance. It is unknown what she told Kate, but Kate was visibly upset during their meeting and Kate's behavior changed dramatically afterwards. Kate assaulted Charlie and willingly got into a van with a man in a dark suit and sunglasses.
Dudley and Dr. William Griffin believe that Michelle Clore is an Elder of the Order. While this has yet to be proven as fact, it is known that her circle picture contains a stereogram of the Hymn of One symbol and her name is on the Hymn of One register.

For those interested in the series grouped together on the lonelygirl15 forums under the banner The Red Territory, there are a couple of new playlists available on YouTube that make following these stories easier.
For Worldfiles, there are two playlists on the impulseLG channel. The first playlist, London Files, with 17 videos, and the second playlist, San Francisco Files, with 45 videos and counting.
These new lists are a huge help for new viewers, or current fans who want to look back or review. The series videos reside on several YouTube accounts, and these playlists put them all into chronological order. The London Files playlist includes videos from channels impulseLG, 2tracker2, thejanitorofoxford, StormGenie, and whoiskris. San Francisco Files draws from thejanitorofoxford, OperationOssifrage, impulseLG, whoiskris, JayNineteen, ZorinXL, phipunk, and filiascientis.
Keeping things straight was definitely getting confusing, so these new playlists are a great addition... check them out - there are some very well made videos telling an interesting story and some mind-bending puzzles in the Worldfiles series, many of which remain unsolved on the forums.
There are also new playlists on the redearth88 channel for redearth88 (Linc and Rachel and Clara) 41 videos, OpAphid v. Tachyon 28 videos, and Maddison Atkins Ch 1 with 13 videos.
What do you think? Do you find these playlists as helpful as I do?
EDIT: Since this article was initially published, the San Francisco Files playlist has increased from 45 to 47 videos, with the inclusion of two by DeagolTheStoor... these playlists are not completely trivial to construct even by the PM (Impulse) ;).

The Creators were speaking at the FITC conference in LA on Tuesday and JenniPowell and Immortal1 had theopportunity to meet with them and give us the scoop.
1. The reason there has been less videos is because next week they are releasing 2 extended episodes These episodes are being hosted on MySpace. There is a music component where a band is going to be featured in the first video and you'll be able to go and download their entire album for free.
2. They will be releasing a press release about this tomorrow.
3. We know Miles is going to a conference in Australia. Well, Greg is going to one at the same time...in Barcelona!
4. They plugged LonelyJew15 as well as Immortal1's videos in their presentation.
5. They MAY be calling in to JenniPowell's BreeFM show tomorrow.
6. They also talked about the improvements they are trying to make to the website and how they are still actively looking for web developers to really tackle their ultimate goal for hosting user generated content.

"Aleister Crowley was born Edward Alexander Crowley in Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England in 1875. Edward Crowley who was his father ran a successful brewery business before he was born, not a lot is known about his mother Emily Bertha Bishop."
The Crowley (rather weak) link strikes again!
Note: A lot of you have commented that you heard Genevieve and not Emily. We are still trying to get hold of GF for comment. Our suspicion is that she has been taken captive by "Watcher Sheep" and is being held captive at the HOO Farm. We may have been infiltrated by the Order in a feeble attempt to throw us off the trail! But fear not, we are onto them.~mm

It all started as a simple community based idea and in a matter of 48hrs it has taken on a life of its own. The RedEarth video
Opportunity Crisis! has now captured the prestigious #1 position in YouTube's most discussed videos and is now the #3 most viewed video in the People and Blogs category.
While the RedEarth video has received numerous other "honors" on YouTube as previously reported the real story here is about a community that has found its voice. From the early days when we created a collaborative online valentines day card for Bree and a collaborative birthday card for Perky this community has show some amazing potential. However, the last 48 hrs have raised the bar and I think it is fair to say that the level of "Operation Red Sunday"'s success has shocked even early community participants.

I doubt Miles saw this advert before its release, as it has five pictures of bree and no other lg15 cast members!!! And if Miles is traveling to Australia, will a new series -- say OutbackSally, be announced soon?

We all feel the distance every once in a while, we are all friends but yet so far away. Join this effort to pump up the community feeling and sing along with the most annoying song ever!
Ok, to the point. I want to make a sing along video with as many of you as possible singing the "song that doesn't end". You know it, you've all heard it and it's very easy to sing.
The idea is that everyone tries to keep the tempo and key of the song as in this video, and to sing it for at least 3 verses. To achieve this it is best to record yourself singing while listening to it on a headphone. DO NOT RECORD THE VIDEO SOUND WITH IT
Announcement: The deadline for participating in the "song that doesn't end" singalong video has been extended!!! Be sure you join in before the end of next thursday! More info here: http://www.shanikosystems.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1938#1938
