Bebo Launches Interactive Reality Show

"Social network Bebo has partnered with Big Brother creator Endemol to launch its own reality show, which will tout interactive features."

http://www.marketingvox.com/archives/2007/11/01/bebo-launches-interactive-reality-show/

"In addition to a weekly half-hour show on the site, "Gap" viewers will "experience it any time through blogs, polls, maps and other features overlaid on the cast's profile pages"

"Meet me at my crib . . .": Reading the official "Crank That" video

"An interesting question was brought up by Henry Jenkins regarding some of what has been discussed here: would our reactions to Soulja Boy be the same if we were to find out, some time down the line, that Soulja Boy wasn't real, but rather the next iteration of something like LonelyGirl15?"

Lone Star Stories: Texans on Justice - statebaroftexas

Capture the promise of justice with the State Bar of Texas and win $2,500. You'll find the rules and entry form at http://www.texasbar.com/texansonjustice



Anyone know any "budding filmmakers" who live in Texas? ;)
Don't worry, I sent an email about this to Jeromy already.
I'm posting here because I thought it might be of interest to other LG15 fans, especially those in Texas. It's a pretty creative idea for a state bar association to utilize YouTube in this way: http://www.youtube.com/group/Texansonjustice

Web Video's Search for the Holy Grail

"Recent history is littered with failed attempts to generate serialized original programming on the Web."

http://publications.mediapost.com/?fuseaction=Articles.showArticleHomePage&art_aid=70263

"This time around a critical mass of users are tuning, or clicking, into shows on the Web in much the same way they do on TV, say defenders of the format."

"The infamous Lonelygirl15 hoax (a series that chronicled the life of 15-year-old "Bree," who turned out to be a fictional character played by actress Jessica Rose) claimed 70 million views, and 13 million in the first two months of spin-off "KateModern.""

"Despite these spot successes, however, advertisers are waiting to see how a reliable ecosystem might generate consistent audiences for original Webertainment."

"The Web is already brimming with clever content no one ever sees because distributors lack the cross-promotion and marketing muscle that TV networks have traditionally exercised."

Mashup Bash: 'Adweek' Conference Dissects the New Creation

"The pair has additional dramas for international audiences in the works for next year. "We broke down the barrier of users talking to fictional characters and used aspects of alternate reality games to introduce puzzle solving," said Goodfried"

Hey guys!

Just a little reminder that I'll be presenting this week's Breecap over at Bree FM in a few hours, giving overviews and my opinions on the week's Lonelygirl 15, Kate Modern, and Lonelyjewfifteen videos! I'm also going to attempt to recap Redearth this week!

And if you're a fan of The Flock, stick around for an exciting announcement!

Jenna

The JenniPowell redearth88 code that wasn't / lard2, the horror !

Sometimes something that looks like a code just isn't a code.

With the release of the latest redearth video, Divine Intervention?, I headed over to YouTube to add to the comments, and noticed JenniPowell, and later Virginian9000 were posting mysterious 5 letter codes. Well, normally any sane person would ignore such things, but with Glenn Rubenstein's recent announcement that JenniPowell and MicFranXon would be helping behind the scenes to produce the Redearth series videos, I thought aha! This must be a code. (see previous article, Behind the Scenes: RedEarth88 Announcement).

So, I was happily cutting and pasting Jenni's weird codes (each one comment on YouTube): "26mkd arn32 yenlq sfzw3 f2syr t3y4l sb9hl i9ysu x6bp5 pshux"

Hmmmmm, I thought, what are all those numbers? Some kind of 15over15 puzzle again? Vigenere decoding the beginning with keyword "redearth" result in 26dog ere32 rl...
Doggerel! (almost) I must be onto something! But the rest is nonsense... hmmm... typo?

etc.

And then JenniPowell posted this head scratcher:
"lard2 ---must have heard all the food talk... (Weird!) "

And I asked:
"lol, is 'lard2' part of whatever the heck you are posting 5 characters at a time JenniPowell?"

Virginian9000 replied with this:
"That is the spam test youtube requires us to enter.
Brook had the idea of posting those has a 'badge of honor.' lololol. We have been doing it ever since."

and JenniPowell posted:
"Also, 'Lard2' will be the name of the horror screenplay I'm going to write.
Brook had the idea of posting those."

Sigh. No code, just random strings of characters YouTube generates to make sure you are not an automated spam bot posting comments. Doh! I blame Brooklynxman.

Google lures MySpace for social network platform

"Web search leader Google said on Thursday that MySpace will join its OpenSocial platform that allows developers to write programs across multiple social sites using one set of tools."

http://www.reuters.com/article/businessNews/idUSWEN225320071101?feedType=nl&feedName=usdai

"OpenSocial is going to become the de facto standard (for developers) instantly out of the gates"

Divine Intervention? - Redearth (Redearth88)



So I guess that remaining undecided wasn't really an option. Talk about a difficult decision! I'm crossing my fingers on this one, but I think I made the right choice.

------------------------------------

Please come join the discussion on youtube. The last redearth video received over 90,000 views, and we would like to repeat that performance on this one if at all possible. We will be commenting and discussing things on the youtube comment board itself to get the video onto the most discussed list.

Also, for anyone who has not done it yet, please come join us. Its loads of fun, especially when the inevitable spam shows up, and we all start replying to it, lol.

Our goal will be to destroy this youtube comment board, please come join us. :)

The video made it to the front page, much like the last Redearth video (thanks for telling us and capturing the image, thewriter90):

Divine Intervention? - Redearth (Redearth88) on LGPedia

LGPedia: RedEarth88 need your HELP!








NOTE 1: One of the lines in this video bears a striking resemblance to a line in the Bree video " Rescuing Daniel"
Rachel "Ally is a few years older than me. Wow, she's not that much older than me."
Bree (talking about Tachyon ): "She's a few years older than me--actually, she's not that much older than me."

NOTE 2: Sascha is the dog of a family Gemma knew while she lived in the commune. When Gemma was about eight, the young girl in the family was chosen to do the Ceremony. Afterwards, the family fled, leaving Sascha behind. This worried Gemma, who later retold this story to Bree as a warning about the Ceremony.

River On Fire - Zarbod


Zarbod is sadden by Rachel's decision to continue to ignore him. But things could still work out.

Zarbod 's musical tribute to Rachel...who so far has not acknowledged Zarbod's existence. But she knows. Yeah, she knows.

Adam Again -- River On Fire

Lyrics
What would you say if you knew what I was thinking?
Maybe you do, but you know not to dig too deep
What if i knew what you needed for sure?
I've seen in your eyes you need more, much more
And I could be happy, and you could be miserable
I'll grab a metaphor out of the air
The Kuyahoga River on fire
What can you say? The impossible happens
What can you settle for?
What can you live without?
I remember the night I first darkened your door
And I swore that I loved you
My heart was pure
You could be happy, and I could be miserable
My open window, a dream in the dark
My fingers, your face
A spark, a trace
I know a lot about the history of Cleveland, Ohio
Disasters that have happened there
Like the Cuyahoga River on fire

Lonelygirl15 travels miles Down Under

Learn what Miles has to say about the origins of the Order, retcon, and future spinoffs!!!!!!!!!!!!

From Anchor Cove: Written by Elixir

"“The Order is one of the international secret societies,” Miles explained, “It traces it routes back to Aleister Crowley… It ties into sort of all of the conspiracy theories that people talk about. At the top of The Order are these people called the Elders who… are people who extend their lives by getting special blood from girls like Bree."

"Miles revealed that there was some interest in the creation of a non-English speaking spin-off and that plans to produce it were almost finalised. He also said that within a year’s time there should be a further three to four other spin-offs emerging."

"It was revealed that due it’s success, Kate Modern is now contracted to Bebo until the end of 2008"

"The WGA leadership said tonight it waited until the writers contract expired at midnight on October 31st to see if the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers prez Nick Counter came up with a last-minute (and expected low-ball) offer -- but he didn't."

Here's how strike could affect TV

http://www.newsobserver.com/105/story/753949.html

"Since the Internet is severing the attachment to network TV, why not make it complete and get your shows online? Short, continuing "series" -- such as the affecting "Hometown Baghdad," the recently launched "Total Pop Star," or the much talked-about "Lonelygirl15" -- may get a boost in traffic if everyone's TVs are dark."

So I have to come up with some ideas for this viral video for 'Gillette Fusion Power Stealth' razors but I don't know the first thing about male grooming!! Why would I??

PLEEEEEAAASE suggest some ideas...maybe I could get Tariq and Gav involved?? If I don't do a good job on this I'm going to get fired and I REALLY need the money. With Kate gone I'm massively struggling with the rent and I'm already behind on the payments...

I was so exhausted last night I fell asleep with my clothes on sitting in front of the TV . Hope you had a happy Halloween.

Behind the Scenes: RedEarth88 Announcement

On Glenn's radio show on BreeFM he announced that.........

Jenni Powell, who is behind the awesome Lonelyjew15 series, has been collaborating on writing some of the RedEarth videos.

Jenni and Glenn worked on the "hamster project" which was never fully realized. It had been envisioned as a component of OpAphid. When he was looking for additional writers for RedEarth88, Jenni was the first person who came to his mind,







Also, MicFranXon from BreeFM is now helping edit some of the RedEarth88 videos. He did a video on Marla yesterday and also worked on one which referenced Linc previously. These videos show the editing skills he brings to RedEarth88.

Glenn is happy to have people from within the community help develop the show. He also thanked the Red Army for helping to spread the message on YouTube. By taking the passion of people within the community its amazing how it can help establish a wider audience. Think of it as a "punk rock' philosophy. There are no barriers. Even though we use the term "fan" it is really much more of a level playing field. Originally when it went public Lonelygirl15 has that feel but many people think that has changed. You dont want to loose touch with your community because its amazing what they can do. A community can turn on your, or there can be no community left. The term "viewers" is too passive. We are a part of it. RedEarth88 would be nothing if it did not have its community.

WHAT TIME IS IT? - Coverage of Glenn on BreeFM

Glenn, live on BreeFM @11pm EST.

It is Halloween. Glenn says there is nothing more compelling than being here with us. He is fascinated with the minutia of LG15, Opaphid and RedEarth88. Glenn will be talking about things that scare him among other things. What was in vogue for Halloween this year?
---
Glenn discussed the Dark City film..........Glenn does not get what is so great about it. He would like to do a commentary about how much it suxs.
---
Halloween: Glenn's best costume ever 1986: when he was in 4th grade, he dressed as Spiderman: the black outfit. Glenn's first comic was Secret Wars: issue number 8 (the episode where spiderman got the black costume). Its great when you make your own costume. You are failing if you wear the store bought vinyl costume.

" Music is my hot hot sex' song - CSS (CANSEI DE SER SEXY): A kid made his own commercial for the Apple iPod touch and posted it on YouTube. An advertising executive saw it and asked him to remake it as a real commercial. Go to Apple web site and you can see the new version (or the original is still on YouTube). In terms of UGC it is pretty remarkable. If you have the talent and know how to use existing resources it can open up a lot of doors. Opaphid (with LG15) is another example.

iPod Touch Ad - Nick Haley - njhaley

I loved the look of the new iPod Touch, found this music, and thought it was perfect for it. I made a commercial using material from apple.com and editing in Apple's Final Cut Pro.

*Sorry about the grey start, its the way YouTube deals with MPEGs*

Made on my MacBook - September 2007.

Music - CSS - Music is My Hot Hot Sex.

When you fall in love with something you fall in love with it on your own terms. People fell in love with the show where Bree was in her bedroom. When she went on the run the show initially felt different. This was well in motion before Glenn had anything to do with LG15. It was a coincidence that the OpAphid story was going in the same direction. When he saw the " On The Run' video is when he realized the stories were headed in the same direction.

With Rachel (Sarah) she does very well with the vlog format. He made a conscious effort to keep the "in bed room phase". Even during the lo-fi series it was presented as things that happen to her. He hopes that works as a formula. What is coming up is a reinterpretation of an established genre thru the vlog genre.

In the next day or two we should know more about Aly Zarin. Glenn is curious to see the reaction when a familiar face shows up as the character of Aly Zarin. It is someone who was extremely popular on LG15.
---
Deagol asked abou Tachyon on the run: it was independent. Glenn was establishing his own story to move the series away from LG15.

Things that scare Glenn:

Montana Meth Project - Bathtub - badassmofo2


Check out all the PSAs in the project http://tinyurl.com/ywm4nn They are all exceptionally good. If you know any hard core "meth" users these videos are scary accurate! It is direct and effective. The guy who funded this is some millionaire who put up his own money before the state co-opted it. What would be the response if something like this went national? The approach of taking a horror movie style is impressive.

"Anti-marketing":


These ads are scary! One video was directed by Tony Kaye and another by Darren Aronofsky.

http://www.methproject.org

Montana Meth Project on Wikipedia

From Wikipedia:
"The Montana Meth Project is a Montana-based anti-drug organization founded by billionaire Thomas Siebel. The main focus of the project is an advertising campaign, based on ads that are intended to horrify viewers concerning the possible dangers of methamphetamine. The advertisements are based on a theme of regret, occasionally with not-yet-addicted teens viewing their future selves warning them about the consequences of what they are pondering. Common elements are amphetamine psychosis and the decline of one's health and living conditions. As of 2007, the ads have been picked up in other states, such as Arizona and Idaho, as well."

A "drug abuse" component was considered for RedEarth88 early on but it was dropped. They have streamlined the story to make it more direct. Clara was going to be working on a documentary about amphetamine abuse before the Maddison documentary.

Allegory between relationships, drug abuse and codependency. Think about an"addict gene". People are addicted to somethings. Things like "meth" go above and beyond the "addict gene". These drugs can grab you and hook you.

There is research that shows that if you have a parent who is an alcoholic you have a higher change of becoming an alcoholic so their is some evidence for an "addict gene".

Please Don't Hate Me Forever - lonelyjewfifteen

Hi. I'm Margot. I figured out how to get onto Anne's account. I have something I need to say...to all of you.

Anne will not RIP (without Bethany) - OpAdolf


2/4.5 Lack of attention leads to desperation.

All great movements are popular movements. They are the volcanic eruptions of human passions and emotions, stirred into activity by the ruthless Goddess of Distress or by the torch of the spoken word cast into the midst of the people.

Margot seemed such a nice young lady that I though that I would give her my autograph.

Near the murder scene - Clara (Redearth88)



This is more old footage. I forget the exact day, but it was after Joel Frady was killed or killed himself or whatever.

Anyway, I'm sorry I'm so sporadic, and I'm sorry that I'm not moving forward with the doc as fast as you'd like.

I'm trying.

-------------------------------------------------------

As with all redearth88 vids, please remember to join the discussion on youtube. Also, on the Clara vids, Clara usually talks with us in the youtube comment section, and she has already started doing that on this vid. In fact, since she has posted her last video, Clara has exclusively communicated through youtube comments and youtube e-mail. Please stop by and say hi to Clara and talk with her.

3-2-1 takeoff - 110139 (LJ15)


So if you care to find me-
look to the western sky

as someone told me lately
everyone deserves the chance to fly!

and if I'm flying solo,
at least I'm flying free!

To those who ground me take a message back from me!

Tell them how I-
am defying gravity

Planes are flying - 110139

In nightmares
he came . . .
that voice
which calls to me
and speaks
my name . . .
And do
I dream again?
For now
I find
the Phantom of the war-torn world
is there -
inside my mind . . .

Operation failed, lost in translation - 110139

Over and over we turn back time, then over and over we save your life;

It's hard to remember to hide your eyes, you tell me you need me then say goodbye-

JESSICA LEE ROSE: Other Projects



Wondering what Jessica Lee Rose is up to? Check out her other projects:
http://www.lg15.com/lgpedia/index.php?title=Jessica_Lee_Rose#Other_Projects

After becoming an internet celebrity, Jessica said she has gotten auditions she probably would not have before. She had a small role in the 2007 film "I Know Who Killed Me" starring Lindsay Lohan. She is also set to star in an independent teen-drama called "Perfect Sport" from first-time director Anthony O'Brien, in which she will play Tina, a 15-year-old girl discovering who she is.
Jessica Rose has appeared in a new TV comedy/drama series "Greek" about, among other things, a geeky college freshman who decides to join a fraternity. The show premiered July 9, 2007 on ABC Family. Jessica Rose's character on the show is named Jen K. and is portrayed as an overly talkative but likable person. While her character was initially a minor character, her role in the series gained a great more deal of significance in the episode that originally aired Monday, August 7, 2007. In that episode Jen K. become close with one of the main protagonists of the series, and this relationship could very likely be explored in future episodes.
On April 2, Rose co-hosted G4TV's Attack of the Show. The episode, ironically, was about April 1st hoaxes on the internet, where it's sometimes unclear what's real and fake.

Decisions Decisions - xmarlasingerx

From MarlaSinger:

"but i'll just say this. i'm pretty sure i've made up my mind. and it's not like i haven't thought about this before, i just never really thought it was plausible. but where i am now doesn't leave me much choice. It's not like it's permanent. I'll just go for long enough to get me back on my feet, you know, and figure shit out. And if Clara wants my help, then she'll get it. If not, I just won't be in her face at all.
Either way I'll be in a better place than I am now. i'm sorry that it seemed like i didn't want your opinions - that's not true. I was just being honest about my answers to a ton of questions that I was flooded with suddenly. I guess I now know how Clara felt when she started coming in here. Rough."



"I met up with MicFranxon and Skunk to talk about some stuff. I don't know if this is plausible but...they have a point. What do you guys think?"

Which Side Are You On? (Never Forget) - OpAdolf



Those who want to live, let them fight, and those who do not want to fight in this world of eternal struggle do not deserve to live.

Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way round, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise.

It is not truth that matters, but victory.

We conduct ourselves by this philosophy.

Which side are you on?

When a million hits won't do it

"And of course, there's the queen of YouTube, Lonelygirl15. Her videos, filmed in what appeared to be her bedroom, became the subject of debate around the world, until it became known that she was a fictional creation of several would-be filmmakers."

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20071027.wyoutube27/BNStory/Technology/home



"What's the secret to YouTube fame? Being attractive seems to help - at least, it probably did for Digby and Denters - but that doesn't really explain the success (if you can call it that) of the Daft Punk video. Playing off a celebrity news event, as Crocker did, also probably helps."

UPDATE: The community based effort code named "Operation Red Sunday" has now resulted in more than 90,000 views for the RedEarth video Opportunity Crisis! What began as the action of a small band of passionate fans tagged the "Red Army" seems to have become a self sustaining stream of views which is probably driven by the videos prestigious #9 position on YouTube's Most Viewed (This Week) - People & Blogs along with several other honors earned by the video.
