"Daniel and I still aren't talking so I did a little reading to decide how to solve this problem. I figured I should make a peace offering. I did all the editing (duh) and I'm getting better at the speeded up stuff. Hope u like!

Lyrics for "All OK" by Something for Rockets:
(BTW, Love this Tune !!!)
I get up on the town A place I don’t even know I get up for the town I run into you all Compromising my path I run into you all
And they tell me The out look it bright That what they keep saying Stay striate ahead towards the light
And who knows if there right I hope to god that they are Cause this is all that I have Or believe in or something similar to faith In this god damn town
That it’s all OK That’s what they keep saying Work for tonight in today That’s what they keeps telling me All OK Look at who you are cause It will work out in the end
I go out on the town Just like nobody else I go out on the town Love a lot sleep around Or is that my other self Love a lot sleep around
And I know that I’ve seen you before In dark filled room hurry up come on drink it down Lets go home real soon And I’m Sorry if I though you were someone else In this smoked filled room hurry up drink, drink it down that’s all I’m gona say
That it’s all OK That’s what they keep saying Work for tonight in today That’s what they keeps saying All OK Look at who you are cause It will work out in the end

music - all OK by something for rockets - This song was fairly engrained in my head during the search for Bree, and probably the Creatrors' too since they used it again in one of the Carmen Electra spoof videos.
youtube comments aka terry et al. get seriously into the hunt:
HyeMew (1 year ago) Marked as spam Don't mess with the lonelygirl mystique. You are who the conspiracy theorists say you are. [in response to a few comments about some guy stumbling upon lg15 on his son's youtube account.]
terryfic (1 year ago) Marked as spam Absolutely adorable! I think this might actually be my favourite of yours. I couldn't stop smiling through the whole thing.. well, ok not the beginning, that wasn't so cheery but after that
lonelygirl15 (1 year ago) Marked as spam Thanks... ---
lonelyfake15 (1 year ago) Marked as spam rightoe... HerrDerDingehis: This is produced to get the kiddies exposed to indie label music artists via Active Direct corporation. It's a gimmick. Ain't real. Note NOW the producers are providing a link to the "music". [who was this guy again? i forget his other handle, but i think its the same guy who later recruited the botanist to look at hiking, a nice guy once he confessed he didn't actually know who was behind it.] ...
lonelyfake15 (1 year ago) Marked as spam OK so here even the MORe LATEST NEWS- Bands that can't get signed to major labels have contracted with a vid producer who pays Bree and Dan to be in his vids. He designs the story lines, Bree and D are paid actors, BUT they put the indie band's music in the vids to get wider exposure that- not suprisingly, wld nevr get heard...
terryfic (1 year ago) Marked as spam I think if you are trying to prove this fake looking at her music is the wrong way. First of all she does not list the music in all of her videos. Secondly she has used some very popular songs such as Grillz and Crazy which certainly don't need more exposure. Finally and most importantly, most of her music comes from ccmixter and have creative commons licenses. No one looking to make a big profit uses a creative commons license, it just wouldn't make any sense
terryfic (1 year ago) Marked as spam Ok, here is why this doesn't work. I shall take my favourite of the artists LG uses in her videos -- Pat Chilla the Beat Gorilla. Now you can note that his work is in two of her videos (July 13 & Aug 18). According to your theory then these are two paid ads to try and increase his popularly. First of all I don't understand why someone already very well respected in his community as one of the best remixers would be looking for further ego stroking, but let's assume he is
terryfic (1 year ago) Marked as spam All of his music is freely available; he has no album and has expressed no interest in making any money off of remixes. So, why would he pay for advertising when he doesn't want to turn a profit? Ok, let's ignore that too; if he was paying for advertising do you not thing that he would want his full song played? I mean both videos not only don't play the whole song, they even hack it up awkwardly removing sections from the middle and making them not sound as polished as his real work
terryfic (1 year ago) Marked as spam Let's say these advertisers don't get music and think that these altered versions are actually representative of Pat Chilla the Beat Gorilla's music; odd, since that is their supposed business. Also odd considering they seem to be leaps and bounds ahead of everyone else in terms of viral marketing. Regardless, do you not think that they would at least credit him properly? His ccmixter username is Beat Gorilla, but he releases all his work under the full name Pat Chilla the Beat Gorilla
terryfic (1 year ago) Marked as spam Oh and don't get me wrong I do agree with you that this does all seem planned or scripted to some degree and it is getting a lot more exposure for musicians that normally get quite little. I just don't buy the theory that that is the point of the whole thing
lonelyfake15 (1 year ago) Marked as spam terryfic: I'm trying to get a hold of these people anyway I can. Have two up and comings I want to pay them to fit in. My Gawd, you can't get this kind of repeat plays anywhere on format. School year is about to hit, kids be talking this thing up, buying the bands that "Bree" plays. Really, if they don't have that in their b.model, they're nuts. that's the first "obvious" use of the medium without "using" the medium. I call it the "silent treatment" of marketing to kiddies. FWIW
lonelyfake15 (1 year ago) Marked as spam Hey lonelygirl producers. Send me a message. If you guys don't know what you've got on your hands, you need some serious consulting. Goldmine. Complete confidentiality. Send me through a proxy I don;t care. I'm getting out my pen for the non-disclosure ag as we speak.
lf15 also gets obsessed with the bree's father videos and keeps praising them and posting links.

leojd (1 year ago) Marked as spam I started getting cold sweats? I'm subscribing again? But lonelygirl promised me!! That in her next video she will tell us who she really is: ?!!!!!!!!!!!!
terryfic (1 year ago) Marked as spam That was pretty hilarious. I understand LG15 withdrawal is ranked up there with heroin. After a couple days without one of her videos you start seeing dead babies on the ceiling
DanielGardner (1 year ago) Marked as spam In my nightmares I see dead Danielbeasts on the ceiling!! :^)
DanielGardner (1 year ago) Marked as spam The "olive branch work?" was the funniest line of the past 3 or 4 vids.
PLEASE talk about the fun of having a whole slew of people think you are fake. Surely you get kicks out of it?
milowent (1 year ago) Marked as spam ivanator, i'm with you - crowley must be discussed.
but lonelygirl15, here's a real easy idea for you, can you turn the camera and show us the view from your window? that would debunk those who think you're on a soundstage (which i don't believe). [note: since bree's window let out onto a little balcony in a fairly busy LA neighborhood, this was not gonna happen.]
lonelygirl15 (1 year ago) Marked as spam I will definitely never burn p.monkey...but if it meant getting Daniel back in my life (hmmmmm.) No, seriously. He's safe. I value him highly even if he is a prima donna;
terryfic (1 year ago) Marked as spam Wait a second, what is the sex of P. Monkey. Didn't you introduce her as a she? Perhaps I miss heard. But I always thought it was interesting that a girl would make the gender of her favourite stuffed animal also female. Very feminist, it was the move of an excellent female role model. I actually think you being a strong, witty, intelligent, and attractive female role model might be part of why you attract so many haters.
milowent (1 year ago) Marked as spam what's the book or electronic equipment in the bottom right on her dresser with the "ten" on it?
michaelyurechko (1 year ago) Marked as spam I think it's makeup..
lokiomega (1 year ago) Marked as spam omg it's completely obviously fake what is wrong with you people. Go say "This is fake!" on another person's video, you WILL get a reply.
terryfic (1 year ago) Marked as spam I think it is unlikely that this is marketing. Take a look at the creative commons licenses for many of the songs in her videos. They can only be used for non-commercial means. I suppose they could have gotten releases from all the original artists, but it seems like an odd way to supply a soundtrack.
lonelygirl15 (1 year ago) Marked as spam The reason I don't have many friends is because I had some problems in public school and Daniel was the only person who was nice to me. So they homeschooled me and Daniel and I stayed friends
DevintheDevil (1 year ago) Marked as spam Sweet Jesus Tapdancing Christ! People are still giving advice as if this is real? HOLY SHIT if you still believe this is real, stop what you are doing, get in a car, drive yourself to the nearest mental ward and commit yourself.
terryfic (1 year ago) Marked as spam Mate, I learned a long time ago that you can either stand at the back of the room being cynical and patting yourself on the back for being oh so clever, or you can join in and have some fun. Regardless of whether this is scripted or not, if you enjoy her videos it is far more fun to play along and get swept up in the moment then it is to just sit around and make fun of people enjoying themselves.
[one of many false sightings:]xchbla423 (1 year ago) Marked as spam You guys seriously can't tell real from fake??? "Bree" is played by actress Brooke Nevin. The Lonelygirl15 videos is a promotional project for the upcoming independent film "My Suicide". www.imdb.com/title/tt0492896/
stevexcraig (1 year ago) Marked as spam Bake him some chocolate chip cookies (use the Nestle Tollhouse recipe on back of chips) and give hime a BIG KISS. Tell HBO thanks for fixing the audio, but the lighting still sucks.
[another fake lonelygirl poster] lonelygir115 (1 year ago) Marked as spam www.populationstatistic.com We have picked up as of Last Friday an Extra 14,673 unique visits due to the article we ran on August 3rd www.populationstatistic.com/archives/2006/08/03/the -%20great-lonelygirl15-debate/ The whole Show was built around the fact that human beings are basically cynical, not to mention we helped a few rumours to start. Why give it all up now?
jokamachi (1 year ago) Marked as spam You're not lonelygirl15, you're lonelygir'1'15, so shut the fuck up.
diffinctive (1 year ago) Marked as spam this is the first lonelygirl video that i've enjoyed in a long time ... fun facts and good editting are what keep your videos better than everything else on youtube ... stick to that please ... oh yeah, i'm sorry about the whole daniel thing ... sucks to lose your only friend
rm59918rm (1 year ago) Marked as spam lonelygirl 115 - that's not lonelygirl5. OK so here's the latest... entertainment media rumor is that an outlet is about to offer a cash reward for the scoop on the this Bree Daniel thing. who they are, who's behind them... like I said blood in the water.. they better rap up the story line... shits about to hit the fan... Matt Drudge might even be on to this.. weird... we'll see.
HyeMew (1 year ago) Marked as spam If they are then they're losers. I don't want to magic ruined. People have to always take the fun out of mysteries don't they?
juanelo4 (1 year ago) Marked as spam Im sorry to say that LG15 target is losers,losers are the ones attracted to this plot,and those losers are the ones that identify with her and will buy LG15 socks when they are on the market,you are being manipulated like when Beckham tells you to buy the new Phillips shave, Britney is to wannabees what LG15 is to Losers..vow to your new Loser icon,hail to Bree.
HyeMew (1 year ago) Marked as spam I resent that charge. Just because people enjoy Bree's usually witty humor and entertaining videos does NOT mean they will buy her socks. I really don't see a big market for Bree merchandise, there's only so many people willing to buy Bree boas and safari hats. Though I think having your own P. Monkey could catch on...
baxter42 (1 year ago) Marked as spam Lonelygirl15 makes it on suicidegirls.com. No not a photo shoot but a great article. Here is a portion of it: "Lonelygirl15 is every nerd boys dream. She is drop dead gorgeous, ferociously well read, interested in science and geek humor, and here's the clincher: she has repressive, religious parents who have home-schooled her and so she doesn't know she's hot or that you're a social pariah and undesirable." Here is the link: suicidegirls.com/news/culture/17790/.
robtomorrow (1 year ago) Marked as spam No, I'm not gullable. There is possibly much in her videos that is fiction, but that doesn't bother me. I have come to believe that Bree is the talent behind the videos, there is no production company. Talented at what she is doing! She has an audience now of over a quarter of million.
milowent (1 year ago) Marked as spam my 2 cents on lonelygirl15, with some links:
TheHill88 (1 year ago) Marked as spam oh i love your videos sooo much! you are sooo cool! i hope you didnt mind my response rap. you look like mischa barton when you do the hippy peace dance...very pretty, funny and intelligent. man, i sound like a lesbian! ARGH! good luck with you and daniel.
locke518 (1 year ago) Marked as spam if this is a marketing campaign for a song then how come, in 1,000+ comments, there's no information given about the actual song?
i even googled several of the lyrics and got nothing
mrclean749 [creators alias, discovered when it was recently used as a spencer photobucket account] (1 year ago) Marked as spam The song is in the description next to the video Music: All Ok - Something For Rockets they have a myspace page
terryfic (1 year ago) Marked as spam I actually agree with you and think that the Crowley picture is a joke. An interesting way to play with peoples expectations and I love stuff like that. My favourite moment on Lost so far is when they revealed that lovable Sayid was actually an Iraqi solider
terryfic (1 year ago) Marked as spam But as far as stalking, I think there is a definite difference between that and investigating, namely the motive. And sorry if you don't like all the sleuthing, but I always end up hearing about these internet games after they are over. It's fun to get to play along for once
steveM999 (1 year ago) Marked as spam terryfic, what "motive" are you looking for? If this were all a stealth marketing scheme she wouldn't be so one-of-a-kind. Industry buzz would have hastened numerous imitators onto YouTube by now with similarly cute girls and story arcs. I say forget the conspiracy nonsense and just enjoy the content. If you end up subliminally being sold feather boas, let me know.
terryfic (1 year ago) Marked as spam When I said motive, I was referring to my motive behind investigating her and how it is an investigation and not stalking. I am interested in the story of LG, not LG herself. Also I have repeated said that I do not think this is marketing, largely due to the non-commercial licenses associated with the music in many of her videos. I do not think there is a big conspiracy. My belief is this is nothing more than a couple kids playing with (and accidentally succeeded on) a new medium
lonelyfake15 (1 year ago) Marked as spam Terryfic: go to sterogum.com. click on the story about this and read the comments. One of the non-disclosure people has opened their mouth. Its a weird deal. been bought and paid for apparently. About religion in a weird way. Guess that's it. Who knows... [this is a reference to the annabanana comment, the most successful hoax comment of the whole hunt.]
terryfic (1 year ago) Marked as spam So you have absolutely no faith in the idea that this could be true, yet you have absolute faith that some random person, who makes spelling errors and repeatedly does not capitalize 'I', who just posts anonymously on a web forum describing a vague idea with no evidence of any kind? Sounds pretty reliable to me, oh and I heard from another insider that she can definitively be linked to 9/11 and is hiding WMDs as well.
terryfic (1 year ago) Marked as spam Virginia Heffernan at the NY Times posted a new piece on LG15 which includes a long e-mail from the girl herself. I think I might be changing my position from thinking this is not something commercial but just some kids having fun and telling a story, to this might be totally real. Yay Bree ! It's gotta be a complement for everyone to think you are too good to be true
steveM999 (1 year ago) Marked as spam Hey terryfic, not everyone thought she was "too good to be true." Many of us felt all along she was genuine, if a little hammed-up at times. Of course, the cynical times we live in predispose people to spotting fakery whether it's there or not, hence the "aboreals" and "lonelyfakes" that pollute our midsts. Fortunately, there are people like yourself who've become skeptical of their skepticism and recognized Bree for who she is: an impressive auteur trying to make a place for herself in YouTube.
HyeMew (1 year ago) Marked as spam I never thought she was something commercial- I always thought she was a part of a few kids having fun and telling a story to see if they could get popular. They probably have had some sort of experience with writing or film before, but like in the high school or college class sense of the word, I don't see this as being professional, though at times extremely witty to the point it makes me think they have a lot of writers. ----
milowent (1 year ago) Marked as spam terryfic, love you man, but i'm starting to think you're a plant too. Heffernan wants to believe.
terryfic (1 year ago) Marked as spam Hehe, you are not the first. There is really nothing I could ever do to try and prove you wrong, since it would just be called a cover up. On another note, I do find it a bit suspicious that the e-mail printed in the NY Times is very similar but not identical to the bits of e-mail the British Times Online published on the 19th. They are not word for word the same, so it is not a form letter. But the tone and topics are very similar, pointing towards her having a standard media release letter
---- HyeMew (1 year ago) Marked as spam When it comes to the theory that lonelygirl is a promotion vehicle for indie music, if that's the case then you can go back to some of her earlier videos and see that I had guessed that way back when. It was the only thing I could fathom it could promote other than monkies and boas. However, ironically enough I think, despite the song names going in the video titles, that the music has gotten the LEAST mention of anything in the LG series. I must admit I do find a lot of the music cool though.
milowent (1 year ago) Marked as spam i got a few links to LG 15 articles at my blog: milowent dot blogspot dot com, including the link to the NY mag article. [this refers to my aug 23 blogpost.
brotherbri (11 months ago) Marked as spam You too can own a P. Monkey. Go to Target's website and search for monkey puppet.
HyeMew (11 months ago) Marked as spam OH MY GOD, I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED MY OWN P. MONKEY! I can't believe it exists! Is this a sign that P. Monkey was bought just for making this series (a google search does not give the impression its been around for long) and not actually a lifelong friend?! Dun-dun-dun.
Wow, thanks for compiling that Milo. At this stage I was in such a hype about lg15. I remember when we found out you could buy P. Monkey at Target... 'cos I had this really vivid dream about going on a quest to get one! hehe... Never did see one in Australia's Targets though, sadly. And I can also remember telling my supervisor at uni all about how I was so inspired by lg15 and wanted to do something similar with my own work... Luckily I didn't follow their techniques too closely!
