So, here is Bree's first videoblog. She's come off as being much more shy in this first vblog than in her later videos. She also name drops paytotheorderofofof2 and the winkone, two prominent youtubers. Guaranteed to get some hits just because of that.
We only see a small portion of Bree's room in this first video.
1. Behind her on the bed you can see Owen, her turtle. This is available at target.com for $19.99 as the "Littlest Pet Shop Plush Jumbo Plush Turtle"
2. Her pink feather boa hangs on the door handle.
3. Most important plot point from first video? The picture over her bed: "Second Story Sunlight" by Edward Hopper.
From Jessica on lg15forum on 8/27 (I don't know if this is first identification, Terryfic may have noted earlier, but this is first I was aware of it): "The painting/print on her bedroom wall is "Second Story Sunlight" by Edward Hopper which portrays a young girl sunbathing on a porch and an older woman sitting in a chair and reading. Both seem disinterested in what the other is doing and is intended to depict loneliness."

In this vid lonelygirl15 identifies herself as "Bree" but worries about being stalked if she revealed where she lives. Maybe her character's name is something else and "Bree" is an alias she goes by to further deter stalkers. That opens up the possibility she is the character Susan of that book Stargirl.
ONCE SHE BECAME ESTABLISHED ON YOUTUBE, she does not comment on other big names in YouTube in her video-blogs, and this no-comment policy is for the most part reciprocated by the other big names. Strange--have these big names been bought off (are they in on the secret, or do they know certain things we don't know?)
She posts constantly in these early vids. This took me about 20 minutes to compile... I think I'm done for the night.
As Bree might say, SUPER interesting.
*** shebitch I think you're kkkkkeewwl.

shakaTUBE Been all over the world for the last 10 years - Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, India, Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, All of Europe, etc...... closing in on 100 countries. Speak Italian, Thai, Spanish, English (poorly). Sounds like you've got a great start! Living overseas is the next step. Go for it! Get out of dodge.

AericWinter Tom who?
But I do know who pay2theorder(of)³2 is. LoL
lonelygirl15 hahaha...I agree, he's a complete freak... [Is she saying Cruise is a complete freak? Interesting since so many have accused her of being a scientologist.]*** creativewai Your life sucks, maybe you should move out to the big city, im not even kidding sooner or later you will be retarded staying at whatever town u're living now.
lonelygirl15 I said my life was boring...I didn't say it sucked.

lonelygirl15 I don't even know what an "emo" is but whatever... *** princessmay10 Hi, how are you I thought of you as very different looking but you look like you arn't a geeky person and you don't seem like it either
lonelygirl15 Really? I think youtube makes you seem a lot less geeky than you are. But I dunno, maybe I;m just hard on myself. I guess I haven't seen alot of the same movies and stuff that most people have and I really like reading and studying so I think of that as "geeky." *** mountainmanjohn good girl. goo for it. you look a nice bit of stuff
lonelygirl15 hahaha "a nice bit of stuff:: *** rumpel4skin i like your wall

lonelygirl15 yeah, I think most of the people on youtube come from small towns like ours because there is nothing 2 do but stay on the computer *** sporty04 The lip thing was the funniest. Rest of it was, well, as you said...booooooo-ring.
lonelygirl15 i know, I'll try to do better next time *** donjag girl u got potential. emmalina has competition.

lonelygirl15 It is, I'm really a hundred and three *** Generalrecall How can you be lonely ? you must be too picky.
lonelygirl15 I'm homeschooled so there are no boys in my life
lonelygirl15 It's just that my parents don't let me date and honestly with the guys in my town I'm kinda glad...
AericWinter Wow, homeschooled and strict parents. I see a lot of videos being posted on YouTube in the future. (c;
lonelygirl15 you have no idea...I just watched a cat stalk a gopher out my window, that's pretty much the most exciting thing that's happened all day.
JEFFYjackass wow thats gotta sux. well its somthin. luv ya
AericWinter Poor little gopher. So I guess you get a lot of reading done, then... that can be a good thing. Feynman's book was certainly entertaining. If you liked that, maybe you'd like something by Simon Singh.
lonelygirl15 cooool, I just googled him, I need to check that out
[Daniel doesn't count as a boy? BTW, I read Simon Singh's book on Fermat's Enigma!] *** NoYouAre Love that song :-) And you have nothing to be lonely about, any guy would be happy and lucky to take you out for a night in town
lonelygirl15 That's very sweet of you, the only boys I've met in my town are kinda jerks and don't like the same things I do [What about Dan the Man?] *** PussayPatrol Why do you think someone would stalk you? By the way, feel free to pluck those brows.
lonelygirl15 I have no idea why someone would stalk me and I hope they don't. *** chaminex U must be as gay as a three dollar bill.....are U dating matt drudge?
lonelygirl15 Dunno who that is...and I think a three dollar bill would be cool *** Ameli1979 forget the dorkiness! You're a looker. chin up sweetie! I doubt that you've lost your mind as some have said. Share you're beauty just like me. Join me in finding more friends on webdatedotcom!
lonelygirl15 My parents don't even let me date so exactly what would I do on webdate.com? (If you come up with a n answer that is original I might stop removing everysinglewebdate.composting... *** getouttatheway I love gnarls barkley. I'm all about nostril flaring too.
lonelygirl15 Yah, nostril flaring needs an emoticon? *** thefastlife4me that was some talented stuff you can do there ;p.
lonelygirl15 I should be in a circus : P
JEFFYjackass OR AN ACTRESS.
lonelygirl15 I am way to stage shy to be an actress, even making these stooopif videos is hard for me *** excapology hi, why do u talk like emmalina?
lonelygirl15 I don't really and I will make more of an effort not to in my firther vids... *** kereru good vid, more classy than most, also you have edward hopper in the background = awesome.

lonelygirl15 np glad you liked it and thanks for friending me back...a lot of people don't [so she used to go around friending other users. Phase 1 of the get famous strategy, I guess?]*** drewishgod What is a boring town? sorry I'm from Santa Monica and I don't know what a boring town is lol.
lonelygirl15 what is a boring town...hmmm. MINE! Why? Because the people here don't really think for themselves and they basically want to make money and raise kids and do nothing ambitious or interesting with their time
drewishgod Wow heh heh sounds boring XD hmmm. my town is fun I don't live in santa monica anymore but i'm there every week heh heh
lonelygirl15 I've been to Santa Monica and I loved it. although L.A. kind of sucked. I liked the beaches and all the pretty people, wouldn't ever EVER want to live there tho. drewishgod heh heh i'm not pretty and how about the one eye guy he isn't either LOL. Theres a major homeless problem in there too. then again what city doesn't have one?
lonelygirl15 Well...mine, but that's because I live in the middle of freakin' nowhere. I honestly think homeless people would come to our town, take one look at it and move on *** animerox oh my goodness! wow lol i thought it was funny when you said "cause you could stalk me *scary music* lol your funny!
lonelygirl15 I was kidding and a couple of people pointed out that I was being very insensitive 2 people who actually have been stalked and killed...so to all those who have been stalked and killed, I'm sorry...real sorry [she's sort of making a mockery of stalking, obviously you can't apologize to dead people. Bree, if you're real, I'm sooo sorry.] *** steveM999 Hi again Bree. There was a recent article in the Washington Post about Emmalina. Did you read it? Basically ot says that vlogs are becomming a ticket to fame as it has in her case. I say you are a thousand times more telegenic. Keep posting great vlogs and you will be a superstar.
lonelygirl15 Wow, no...Kewl. But I doubt that I will ever be famous. I'm sure you have to do the nasty dance for that to be the case. *** ChelskiUK Great for your first blog! It's boring in my town too...I hate living in England. Too many toothless hobos. Keep em coming!
lonelygirl15 Kewl, I lived in England for awhile when I was younger *** ncocco33 Hey Bre...you're really beautiful. I'm sure you get all sorts of wierd messages from guys, but I would really like to talk to you online...so IM me if you want NCBeachboy33
lonelygirl15 I would but I don't have IM yet *** phrox I love cheese...?
lonelygirl15 Bree is a cheese, some people have pointed that out...only my name is spelled B-R-E-E whereas the cheese is spelled B-R-I-E...wow I'm bored. *** czar3000 wow great your 16?!!!! but you look like 20 to me hehehe hey do you have a friendster plz invite me coz you are so cute!!!! ^_^

When reading these comments, I am really bugged by Bree's use of 'slang/text' style writing, such as kewl for instance. This dosen't sit right with me, I can't imagine Bree communicatiing this way. Just an observation.
This is what happens when you put yourself out there on the Internets. And Bree knew it from the very first vlog.
Oh, I think she's been lost since around January 1, 2007. It is inconceivable to me that this character, this smart, optimistic, strong, and independent woman, would trust the people who murdered her father.

I miss this time so much. I remember it so fondly and am not really enjoying the present nearly as much. Of course that also comes with outside life changes and being thrown out of my comfort zone in the past few months, but it makes the longing for this time all the stronger, not just because it had a great and engaging video series, but it sure adds to it!
Awww... I remember when the tags used to mean so much to us. We never did find out about that hamster though, did we? Haha
Now the tags are more like 'sex' and 'virgin'. What's the bet that by this time next year we are faced with tags like, 'porn', 'orgy' and 'sodomy'? lol.... I hope I am wrong....
I miss this time so much as well, Hye. I loved feeling like I was watching something interesting and intelligent unfold in front of my eyes, but well... now I don't know about unfolding, it's more like the plot is unraveling...
