Lonelygirl15 Masquerade


Well, this whole Lonelygirl15 debacle is far too complicated to properly detail (thankfully, other, better blogs, are keeping good tabs on the fiasco) but it appears to be completely official that she is a hoax (see link). There are pictures, video, actor specs and apparently a movie deal in the works.

Ah well, the entire spectacle is at least interesting. YouTube is still abuzz with video wars about Lonelygirl15. And since we are seeing clips of LG15 on every news program in the country (including ABC, CNN, and the E! News Top 10), it seeems LG15 is at the forefront of America's consciousness at the moment as well.

Bravesgirl5 made a vid called LONELYGIRL15 IS OUT! NOT KIDDING Y'ALL which got 46 video responses. The funniest response is a snotty bit of sarcasm from YouTube darling, Renetto entitled, Lonelygirl15 is a fake...PLEASE WATCH!! I was expecting this video response to be truly cutting because in this video, Dangernerd upbraids Renetto for being a professional filmmaker (big deal, right?) and for reeming Bravesgirl5.

What is it with the YouTube fixation on being "real?" What is real anyway? As Renetto says in his video which takes the piss out of Bravesgirl5, "Yeah, I want the real YouTube people like LittleLoca and Oohlalaaa and The Real Paris, they're all real." Here is Morbeck's fake news proclaiming he is the only "real YouTuber left."

I agree that Paris Hilton does not belong on YouTube but this fixation on "real" seems ridiculous to me. YouTube is a medium created for deceit and simulacra. I missed the Emokid21 fun but it seems almost identical to the Lonelygirl15 creation. Isn't this sort of thing the blood-n-guts of YouTube?

Where would YouTube be without these kids playing dress up and pretending to be someone else for a month or two? In fact, now that i think of it, Lonelygirl15 reminds me of one of my favorite characters, the fairy tale loving, dreamer girl in Labyrinth.

On another odd and even creepier note, Anna Nicole Smith's 20 yr old son is dead (link). It looks like a drug overdose but I think for those of us that enjoyed the train wreck that is Anna Nicole, it is hard not to feel a little culpable.

I mean, there he was, always hidden in the background looking uncomfortable and awkward, and now he is dead. Reality TV goes, ouch. Needless to say, Anna Nicole jokes will be off limit for a wee bit. Poor kid, and poor skinny, blonde bimbo.

And for some closing bad taste, check this out for a pic of Lindsay Lohan's shaved doo ha ha! click on the picture and there it is, firecrotch in all her glory!

That crazy b**tch just wants people to see her hoohah. She could afford even $1000 underwear if she wanted to. It's frightening to see the decline of a cute teen kid when they are introduced to that thing I've been hearing about called crack cocaine.

so after checking out that photo, and doing a bit of research, (some serious photoshop magnifying) i've come to the conclusion that that is just some well done photoshopping from some perv with alot of time on his/her hands. (i'm going with "his")

The pixelation doesn't match up with the rest of the photo, and the colors are a little to uniform - it looks like he basically colored over her panties with flesh tone, and/or maybe added in the "Hoo Haa!" of another lady...

Reguardless, i was still able to get my kicks ;D

Actually, the original panty-free photo was proved to be real; a version with panties was fake. The photographer showed the original image. Lohan flashed the world again a couple of days later; still no panties.

Woah!

Ok, yeah that is real, my bad - not wanting to see another shot of Lohan's lohan, i asumed this picture was one i saw last week of her stepping off a boat, that was obviously fake... this, is very real... either that or she got a dieing baby mouse squished between her thighs...
i'm gonna go throw up.
