Is anyone a fan (or at least knows something about) "LonelyGirl15" on YouTube?
I read an article about it in the December Wired (Salon.com gave me a subscription to it) and there was an article about this videolog/webdrama/whatever-you-want-to-call-it on YouTube. It was interesting enough for me to try and go on YouTube to check it out, but all I really found were "exposes" about it being "fake" and other YouTubers's videos slamming the show/character rather than the actual episodes themselves.

Has anyone seen the episodes? Anything to say about them?

2. Well, I guess that saves me the trouble, then. The article made it seem revolutionary...
...like it was the first of a new medium that would make conventional television obsolete. :shrug:

...and at first i didn't know it was fake and i still thought it was lame. i went there to see what the buzz was about. it was some chick complaining about her relationship with her BF. some youtubers started taking her videos and making them funnier. those were worth seeing.

lately, i've been watching this guy's stuff on youtube and it's pretty good:

7. Whoa...that reminds me of a public access cable show a girl used to put out here in NYC...
...only the public access show was real.

Thanks, I'm passing these on! Very funny in small doses (like the 3 and half minutes these run).
