Explanations and regrets - addmusic3039

I really, really like this video, and I just felt that I needed to move it to this account. I've been thinking a lot lately...about regrets and things mispoken and argued over.

Double L, I'll never know the whole story- I mistakenly walked into the end. This time I've blamed you for something long coming and for that I am so sorry.

Lara Mary Walker- Codenames: Guilotine Calamity, Sister, and my personal favorite- red.

March 20th 1989-May 23rd 2007.

To the world you were sister, but you will always be my cousin.

Also, everyone that watches this- know that we hold the missing pieces and the the whole truth will never be shown. There are three points of view here, four if you're lucky.

For too long I've felt sorry for something that never happened, maybe that will change soon...isn't that right, Spoon?

The Red Territory

by Broken Kid
on Sat Oct 13, 2007 8:28 am

We have added a new area of the forum called " The Red Territory", and we encourage folks to check it out. I want to clarify a few issues for those who are curious:

What is The Red Territory?
Think of the Red Territory as a world parallel to ours. Several filmmakers are developing their stories in this world. Perhaps they'll cross, and maybe those who watch closely will see some defining characteristics.

What is included?
The stories of Maddison Atkins, OpAphid, and redearth have combined and are now a part of Redearth88 . Other stories happening in this world include Worldfiles, Facility J, Will-O-Wisp, and ZorinXL. Others may emerge as well.

Is this a part of Lonelygirl15/required viewing/canon to the official storyline?
This is UGC (User-generated Content). So no, this is not required viewing if you are following only the LG15 storyline. However, as we've all seen, many fans of LG15 are talented filmmakers and have developed their own creative and unique storylines and ARGs (alternate reality games). So folks are encouraged to watch and participate as they would like, and there is likely something for everyone.

Please note that moderators will be moving posts from other areas of the forum into this new area, but it may take some time.

creatio ex nihilo - Vertumnalia

"This day, this day, this, this
The Royal Wedding is.
Art thou thereto by birth inclin'd,
And unto joy of God design'd,
Then may'st thou to the mountain trend,
Whereon three stately temples stand,
And there see all from end to end.
Keep watch, and ward,
Thy self regard;
Unless with diligence thou bathe,
The Wedding can't thee harmless save;
He'l damage have that here delays;
Let him beware, too light that weighs."

Think we should tell him about:

Major Internet Hubs See Lesser Influence

"As people increasingly turn to blogs, social-networking sites and other sources of user-generated media, Google Inc., Yahoo Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Time Warner Inc.'s AOL have spent more than $10 billion collectively this year to acquire companies and technologies that help extend their online advertising networks."


Google to Show Videos on Other Web Sites

"But Google won't be pulling clips from YouTube's entire library, which includes a multitude of wacky segments contributed by amateur videographers. The material sent to other Web sites will be confined to video from providers who sign consent forms."

Wild Wednesday continues with GlennFM

  • GlennFM on the BreeFM radio station: Website or Direct Stream

  • Joint host DJ Glenn Rubenstein with some kizz ass music and enjoy his insight into some of your favorite Vlogs.

    Tune into BreeFM or chat on IRC

    Notes from the show:

    Glenn ponders the last year and his experience with the community

    REDEARTH: The earth moves forward. Are we entering a new realm? Redearth will focus on a narrative. The overlappiing series will be broader with ARG elements. A familiar face (to some) will be a co-star when the show returns on Friday 10/12.

    Glenn On Setting Expectations - Click to Listen

    emoGlenn? Glenn talked about the emotion in the Dashboard confessional song.

    10/12/06 sucked. Nothing happened that night. Lonelygirl15 did not end that night. Bree did not die. The ceremony did not happen. Cassieiswatching helped hype the darkness surrounding the series. Fake ceremony.....your kidding me. All the creepyness lead us to expect something dramatic. Daniels video hinted at something dark.....could this be the tip of the iceberg? If Daniel had seen something spooky would he really have stopped following Bree? Flawed plan much?

    Lets meet int the woods? If you are doing that you are doing something bad. And lets not forget the photos. On the other hand there is no security in the hospital. This group is disorganised and flawed. No need for Tachyon to look into this further because it will collapse on its own.
    Glenn's original story that he talked about last week had a dark element within a religion.
    Expectation management: pple run with the ball so much that anything you do would be a let down. Friday 10/12/07 keep in mind its picking back up and you dont open with the show stopper. There will not be so much down time. So enjoy!
    Glenn does not rap any more....but he could be talked into it:)
    If you are angry Glenn dont yell at him! He likes to make pple happy:)

    Bree's Gone: Jonas was the vessel thru which Glenn "spoke". Jonas notices Bree is gone and is freaked out (the day after Xmas). You would think that you would be pissed when a girl you invited to stay with you ripped you off.

    The original working title was "Bitch Stole My Money".

    Outline notes: Jonas upset at having his money stolen. The tone shifts to concern as Daniel is concerned Bree has been taken.

    Glenn Reads his Author's Notes on "Bree's Gone" - Click to Listen

    Glenn felt there was a chance to explore some things. You set up expectations in a friendship without the other person asking and then they disappoint you. Glenn is a huge Loveline fan. When it comes to writing characters or dialogue listen to Loveline because every call is "reality". You get a slice of pples lives.

    Jonas made it all about him. He is very attractive but horribly insecure. He is looking to connect to pple and projects his expectations on pple, and of course is let down. He wants to innitate and "extreme connection" like the one he missed out on with his parents.

    Milowent asked if anyone thought about the fact that Bree could not drive at the time when she drove off with Jonas car. Glenn said it did not even cross his mind.
    ARG: Tachyon et al talk to each other in codes based in pop culture. Pop culture is its own "secret language". The modern spy could talk in codes that noone else would get. It allows Glenn to share his "taste". This type of puzzle is not for everyone and Glenn referenced how they different from Deagol's desire for puzzles that are extremenly "mind boggling". When you are PM of a game the gloves come off and you receive a lot of criticism. Sometimes it seems like the fans will revolt at any minute because they are investing a lot of their lives in the story.
    RADIO DRAMA: The untold saga of the Cowboy: how to audition. Its all going to make sense.

    What was missing from the LG story? What was the Cowboys plan and what it does it feel like to be the Cowboy? Does a white van really fit in?

    To participate:
    1. Post an audition video. In our community we post videos....you can just have a black screen, a head shot, a drawing etc. - the voice is the most important thing

    2. Need:
    1 female lead,
    1 male for the Cowboy and
    one person who is working with the Cowboy

    3 Any additional roles will be filled from the same auditions.

    4 Pick a monologue to read from for the audition. Find something the means something to you. eg:

    For one of the roles they need someone who is like an authority figure. - read something like that.

    For the Cowboy - something more earnest.

    For female - something working class.

    TRIVIA: Glenn said his voice was in the video and you can also see Brothers car.
    Glenn talked about "Quantum Leap" He was sad when it ended. For LG15 would you rather have seen the Ceremony or text saying that Bree died?

  • Be in the Maddison Atkins Trailer Just DOOO IT before FRIDAY!!!

    UGC vs UGS?

    In a recent discussion between Greg Goodfried, Immo and Impulse in response to an article on this blog, Greg asserts that the term UGC is very broad and hence includes everything from random videos to film series produced as webisodes. Perhaps we should introduce a term such as User Generated Series (UGS) to distinguish between the two.

    While we are at it we might want to consider the term ARG (Alternate Reality Game) for the genre of ARG that are really driven by the video narrative with game layer(s) laid on top. Perhaps the term Alternate Reality Interactive Series (ARIS) would be more appropriate.

    There are special constraints on an ARIS that do not exist for an ARG. For example, for the plot to continue a puzzle has to be solved in a given time frame in an ARIS whereas it is much more open ended in an ARG. ARIS also tends to emphasize the goal of interactivity between the viewer and the plot line of the series itself and plays down the "game" nature of the genre.

    What do you think?

    Acid Called in and said ... a word
    Then we talked a bit about Becki kregoski and her character Taylor. I dug up some stuff and emailed a few people and found out that she's taking a break to focus more on school and another project. However I'm still waiting for confirmation from Becki herself. So this is just rumor right now.
    And then Zoey asked me a million questions that I can't remember... One of them was Do I think Gemma is dead ( I actually can't remember if Zoey asked this or not....)
    And I said No. And that I think that Gemma is back in London watching over kate, and Kate was actually Gemma's former Flat mate.
    And then Quince Called in....but I can't remember what he asked.
    And mic called in...and I can't remember what he asked (this is why I should TOTALLY write this WHILE I'm on air)

    Oasis, Jamiroquai to follow Radiohead

    "Some of the music industry’s biggest names are considering offering their music free online following the success of the experiment by the band Radiohead to let fans download their new album without charge."


    Research: acidfingers

    Greg Goodfried talks about User Generated Content Social Networking

    This video is dated Mar 14, 2007, but it contains a lot of insight into how the Creators think:

    Greg talks about how LG15 got started: it's like Buffy or Dawsons Creek meets X Files

    Greg talks about how to monetize UGC and said they made money off UGC videos on Revver.

    The production budget is $40,000/month

    Will there be premium accounts on LG15.com where you would get an e-mail address and the ability to go to events? Does that mean we would have to pay for events?

    He does not see UGC content as a sustaining model because it's boring.

    How do you get people to sit on the site 8 hours a day: give them UGC to watch, a wiki to write and chat.

    LG15 is a social network built around an entertainment property. The motto is every fan is a character.

    One word that sums up their production is interaction. If they didn't have fans talking back to their characters the show would stop.

    They don't intertwine the derivatives into the main story.

    He talks about developing non lg15 shows that have TV components. For example, you watch the Internet show during the week and the TV show on Friday night.

    immo1 said...
    There were a lot of things in this presentation that really surprised me and others that confirmed what I had suspected. In terms of User Generated Content, I was glad to see Greg acknowledge that it was something that made the site "sticky" and brings new people to the show but then he goes on to say it's not integrated and it's more like a creative outlet for the hardcore fan. He says that if one word sums up the production it's interaction but there is no interaction in regard to user generated videos if they are never acknowledged somehow by the canon story. I wish I would have seen this back in March.

    Anonymous (this posted ends imho, which probably means "in my humble opinion") and should not be confused with immo) said...
    If UGC is so boring, how come it keeps people glued to their site 8 hours a day?

    It's the LG15 stuff that's boring imho.

    impulse said...
    Cool! I'm happy to learn UGC content is boring. Still they made money out of it. I wonder if the UGC creators made anything. Well, why am I talking, what do I know, uh?

    Greg said...
    hey impulse and immortal. you have to take my comments in context. i was in a room with a bunch of advertisers and tv people. we are always trying to defend ourselves and our show as professionally produced content that has value just like content produced by big media. I do not think that any of the fan content generated on this site is boring - to the contrary, I watch it everyday.

    I think random UGC showing parents feeding their babies or cats chasing dogs is boring. I think the term UGC is too broad and I don't think that what either of you are doing is really UGC. You are both writers and filmmakers creating videos that have narratives, storylines, and arcs. What I meant was that all the random stuff on YouTube gets boring after a while and it is not a business model.

    Hope that clarifies things. Sorry if my words offended anyone.

    immo1 said...
    Greg: I wasn't referencing the boring comment. You have to defend yourselves as professional content and we have to defend ourselves against being depicted as exactly how you categorized us which is essentially fanfic.

    impulse said...

    just a bad choice of words I guess. You know first hand the amount of work (and money) it takes to write, film and produce a show on the long run. We also have to defend ourselves to make it possible. We are here because we are huge fans of LG15. We do this because you've changed the way to approach entertainment on internet and we want the monster you've created to live and become even bigger than what it already is. In my mind, the LG15 experience is not just about the Breeniverse and the Lonelygirl series. It's also about KateMordern, it's also about the Flock, it's about all the original series that can spring up out of it. I pretentiously think we provide really good original content to the fans alongside your series. In fact, I don't know anything that could be compared to what is currently happening on the LG15 website, really. The UGC here is truly unique. I hope you know that. You took the lead in this and put yourself in a position where you can defend and promote UGC. Do it!

Meanwhile behind the scenes, a new form of interactive narrative was being born. Miles Beckett and Greg Goodfried joined Mesh Flinders to create the viral phenomenon of 2006-2007 – featured on the cover of Wired magazine and spoofed by Carmen Electra, LonelyGirl15 consistently reaches millions of viewers who speculate and influence the dynamic filmmaking process."

    From Miles Beckett Bio:
    "Along with producing partner Greg Goodfried, Beckett has formed the digital studio, LG15 Studios with the purpose of creating original content and marketing campaigns for digital platforms (internet/mobile/IPTV)."

    TheLadyLazarus Series Review - The Lady Lazarus

    On December 12th, 2006 a video account was created, with a message and a poem of the same name. It's a simple story, really. But certain people complicated that story, and soon it became so much more.
    Double L created a series of 10 videos using the poem "Lady Lazarus" to send a message to the Order; that they couldn't have their ceremony girl. But they were persistent, and found themselves a new girl named Beatrice.
    LL knew B well, they had grown up in the same community, and she needed his help to escape the Order. But Double L had problems of his own.
    Another girl, named L, sought out Lazarus, and he reluctantly agreed to meet her.
    From this "GuillotineCalamity" he learned about a strange mask her grandfather owned, and how he would be using it an upcoming ceremony.
    It would be years before they would meet again, and it would be years before LL found out that Cassie was also once wanted for a ceremony, and had even tried to steal this mask.
    LL knew from the beginning that OpAphid was responsible for Cassie's death.
    After meeting L a second time he realized where her loyalties lied, and they never met again. And as Double L's visions of Cassie worsened, B gave into her worst fears, and commited suicide.
    Lady Lazarus gave his two girls code names; Cassie was Coma White, and Beatrice was Coma Black.
    Cassie believed heavily in the tarot. Beatrice believed heavily in revolution.
    I hope we all learn from her mistake.

    Dream 17: "Work Related Stress " (Lucy) - voyboy

    Lucy walks into a dark empty night club. She sits at the bar.

    Bartender: Hey there beautiful.

    Lucy: Get me a Shirley Temple with a double shot of Absolute.

    Bartender: (laughing) Sure thing babe.

    Lucy watches as the bartender eyeballs how much vodka he pours. Its not even close to what Lucy ordered. Lucy pulls out her pistol shoots him between the eyes and grabs the bottle of vodka before it hits the floor and fills her glass full. She reaches over the bar grabs something and tosses it in her very grown up Shirley Temple.

    Lucy: (to the dead bartender) You forgot the cherry, "babe".

    She comes home. She sleeps...
    ...and dreams.

    Do It For Maddy!

    Many of us were touched by the experience of knowing Maddison Atkins personally. Many more have been drawn into the hunt for her killer as news of her tragic death spread and new people came to know her through her vlogs, posts and well, by just talking with her friends in IRC. Now is a great time to express those emotions by participating in a "scripted video trailer". For details on how to participate go HERE.

    KateModern Vlog #1

    My first attempt at vlogging; talking about the latest happening on KateModern - plus shoutouts to my friends!!

    (For those of you not on Bebo this is Kenn, uber KM fan!)

    These girls are all so skinny!

    From Lexi on myspace:

    I recently read an article about the “thin” trend in Hollywood. It made me fall on the floor laughing. I have never come across something so hypocritical in my life. It has come to my attention that we as actresses are not judged by our talent, but by our dress size. I find it sad that so many wonderful actresses who study and put every ounce of themselves into a part are first looked at for body type instead of their ability. Now on some level I do agree that in this industry you must stay healthy for you are a public figure. But that means not going to either extreme. I was at an audition a while ago, and I ran into a girl who was about five three and one hundred and twenty pounds; she looked amazing. But I noticed that she was extremely nervous, so, I asked what was wrong. She looked up at me almost on the brink of tears, her eyes filled with a sad sense of amusement and she said, “its just everyone in this room is so skinny, I’ll never even be considered” I was appalled at this statement; but partly because I knew she had a point. Both her and I were going to walk in and be looked at and discarded for the one sheer fact that we look like normal healthy girls, still thin, but not “Hollywood” thin. I hope that one-day Hollywood opens its eyes and realizes the harm it is causing and the talent it is losing to the monster it has created, I recently saw the same girl a few days ago at an audition, she was still five three but she could not have been more than ninety pounds. She looked tired, sickly and all the amusement that was once in her eyes had been replaced by sheer desperation and sadness. But the worst part was when I began to speak to her, asking her if she was prepared for the audition she said “yes, but it doesn’t matter, I mean look at these girls they’re all so skinny… and I’m well not” I smiled not knowing what to say and also not wanting to embarrass her. This industry has the power to change lives; I just wish they would take that into consideration and use their influence to teach young hopefuls to be the best actress they can be and not the thinnest actress they can be. Help girls to understand that not everyone is built the same and you’re most beautiful when you are the healthiest for your own body type, not everyone is built like Kate Moss nor should we try to be. I just find it sad that every year so many girls come to Hollywood with a dream and leave with an eating disorder.

    As a theatre major at CSUF.... and previously studying in NY at Fordham University and LIU... I can't begin to tell you the atrocities and adversary I have met in regards to the differences between physical attitudes involved with women in the media and stage.

    Recently I dropped out of CSUF acting program- mostly because I felt that they put far too much emphasis on "type casting" and physical attributes. Sure, it's good to know what kind of roles you might be strong at playing, but to be told you would never play this or that part because physically you don't look that part so don't bother trying was annoying to say the least.

    I felt that the attitude surrounding this was extremely different in my pursuit of education on the east coast (non-Hollywood) where the emphasis was on acting training and knowing the tools to play any part regardless of looks.

    I look around my department now (I've switched emphasis to sound design) and am bewildered at the amount of young women striving to dreams which in the end are leaving the school with no preparation other than instructions on how they much look rather than perform.

    I agree whole heartedly on the Hollywood scene that there is driving need to be thin, to be what they want you to be and I've been there, done that.. and it's not pretty- and it's dangerous as hell. It's disgusting... and the fact that CSUF and the business out here perpetuates such a bullshit philosophy angers me.

    They have a chance to change this.. at any moment. Writers and casting directors have a chance to do this.

    And we at home or struggling to make our marks in the business have a chance to do it too... So educate yourselves, voice your opinions... write letters.

    There is a whole ton of research and organizations out there that feel the same way and are trying to change this. If you need help finding them or want to know me, send me an e-mail... I've got tons of links.

    As a young girl i know what its like to be pressured into being skinny (people calling me names and all) but its not just that.

    I run a website, well its not really a website its a my space but im hoping to branch out to the World wide web with my own actual website on the matter.

    anyway, the site deals with just this.. eating disorders. because not a lot of people know of the harm and damage it can and has done to people before.

    I can relate to when lexi was talking to that girl and the 90 something pound girl said "Im not skinny enough"

    because no matter how skinny, how on the verge of death they are.. they cant see it and thats why they cant stop.

    And most of the time they're reluctant to get help cause they dont think theres anything wrong with them.

    Its a horrible disorder and its even worse that its actually turning into a trend, I've heard of people that WANT to be anorexic/bullimic, and that go to these pro-eating disorder sites to get tips on how to stay anorexic.

    Its sick. and it's everywhere
