So, the end of the year is upon us, which means it is time for publications far and wide to create meaningless lists of the most important/silly/dumb/whatever events of the year. Because not all contributors to lg15today are bots with impeccable memories, we open the floor to you. What do you think are the biggest stories in the land of EQAL in 2009 (perhaps we'll do a 2nd list for webseries generally as well). Off the top of my head lots has happened despite the lack of any new original content directly from EQAL in 2009, including:
* Harper's Globe
* EQAL's decision to move away from creating original content
* Level 26
* EQAL's Polish series n1ckola
* The second TSIY contest, and Mason's win
* Mason remixes
* 2nd BreeFM Prom
* Resurrection of the old lonelygirl15 forum
* The first TSIY contest for EQAL, and the misunderstanding.
* The recent Meep Up/Party In the Breeniverse
* LG15: The Last
* Paula Deen
* Alicia Silverstone site
* The return of Maddison Atkins
* Jessica Rose appearing in webseries everywhere
So, whaddya think?

This holiday season join Felicia Day and Sandeep Parikh as the Guild sells out with a line of merchandise no sane consumer would ever consider purchasing. Enjoy all 6 commercial parodies written and directed by Greg Aronowitz ("Do You Want To Date My Avatar" weapons maker)
heres my project for awesome video for this year.
to find out more about P4A
to find out more about my favorite charity in this video
and ask me anything about anything, ESPECIALLY my video here
Hum I can see the board is dieing down already, but before it does completely I'll announce our next community activity:
CHRISTMAS IN THE BREENIVERSE
The season to be jolly is upon us once more and on the board that means 2 things:
- Christmas Avatars. Bring out the santa hats and beards and decorate your avatar, I already did
- LG15 spoof Christmas songs. Adapt the lyrics of popular christmas songs to lg15 and if you have a good voice, sing it.
I'll also be uploading all the lyrics from last year that didn't get singed for anyone who wants to sing them.
Here are two songs from last year to get you all inspired
12 Weeks of Lonelygirl15:
Get cracking lonelycrackers, the LG15 folder of my mp3 player won't fill itself, if the H.P. Lovecraft society could make 2 cd's of spoof christmas songs I say we can make 3!
Oh found another one!

On the latest episode of the Web.Files Kristyn Burtt interviews Daphne Brogdon of Coolmom.com and Momversation.com two websites, which aim to put a new spin on online parenting sites. The two discuss the unique challenges of being a mommy blogger as well as the challenges of monetizing web content and establishing oneself in a niche market.
Daphne Brogdon is a veteran tv host, who has worked on numerous television shows including CNet's The Web and the Fox's Inside 24. In addition to her television work she is a standup comic, writer, and producer.
Early today, Space Truffles announced that it had partnered with Brand in Entertainment to produce the first ever web series brand auction. What is a brand auction, you ask? Also, more importantly, where can I get some tasty space truffles? Well, according to BIE’s press release, the auction organizers “will invite professional representatives and advertising agencies to bid on exclusive packages to feature their services and products among a variety of media platforms.” In other words, advertisers will compete for the right to advertise in certain projects. Two of the web series involved in the auction are Pink the Series and After Judgment.
Founded by Gennefer Snowfield, Space Truffles is a specialty shop specializing in branded entertainment and web series promotion. On her website Gennefer wrote, “…what I’m most excited about is how our participation in this event will help further advance and legitimize the web TV category, demonstrating the high production and narrative quality against traditional, mainstream media also being auctioned. It will also serve as further testament that investing in web series is a viable tactic for advancing marketing objectives…” Figuring out a viable means of funding web series has been an on-going issue. Perhaps this will be a first step towards advertisers being more willing to invest in the medium.

Back to the Future Remixed and Mashed Up with Beastie Boys, Timbaland, Diddy, Fergie, Justin Timberlake, Nelly, Britney Spears, and Dr. Dre. A Smashing Frames edit. http://SmashingFrames.com
Smashing was an early lonelygirl15 fan, starting from before the time of the "outing" of the Creators in the summer of '06, and active on the original lonelygirl15.com phorum and Anchor Cove. Though this vid is not related to lg15 (unless you want to make an extremely tenuous connection to EvilSarah's "Hey McFly, I'm evil" comment), this is the first video he has uploaded in quite a long time.

Thanks for everyone who helped bring the "World Wide Meep Party" and "Party in the Breeniverse" to life and made them smash hits. Out of a simple idea on the comments board these concepts grew through the spirit of collaboration and once again we demonstrated that with the help of the interwebz we do have the ability to control our own destiny as a community. So, whether you helped promote it on comments, made a video, tweeted, posted on facebook etc etc, or just showed up to enjoy a really awesome evening and meep, thank you all. A special thanks to all the cast and crew who showed up and helped make the event so special.
WE WILL NOT BE STOPPED

Make sure you all check out the show when it premieres 01.11.10!
We'll have a preview up on Youtube for you all to check out later this month.
Anyway, just wanted to drop by and say MEEP!

NOTE: You will need to be sfs to get comment 436 so good luck. It is however an awesome power.
The International Academy of Web Television, the independent, non-profit organization that serves as the voting body for the Streamy Awards, officially announced its Board of Directors today along with its first Chairman, Michael Wayne, co-founder and CEO of DECA (Digital Entertainment Corporation of America).
