By the way, whenever I try to go to http://www.lonelygirl15.com, my browser says “This IP address cannot be used for browsing.”  Anyone know what that’s suppose to mean?

I get this message:

There might be a typing error in the address.


I thought she was cute - and whenever I saw a post here about her…I would log onto youtube & watch more videos.  They were entertaining at least.  Some videos are pretty stupid.

Either they took the site down or it’s been inundated with hits and failed.

Creators of Lonelygirl15 Blogs Go Public

LOS ANGELES - The creators behind the Internet video mystery teen Lonelygirl15 have revealed themselves and want their fans to know they are not a front for a big Hollywood studio marketing some upcoming film.

Instead, the three friends launched the adventures of the doe-eyed, 16-year-old homeschooled “Bree” as an experiment in storytelling that they intend to continue on their own Web site that was launched Tuesday.

Ooops, sorry.  I should have been more specific.  The article you posted is from when the creators admitted to the hoax.  So technically you’re right, that’s when it was determined to be a definite hoax.  But my article is from a few years later after some people tracked down exactly who the creators and the actors are and the whole story has finally come out.  In other words, now we know “who” did it, not just that they did it.

“A few years later”??  What was I thinking.  A few days later of course

Actually, both of our articles are from the 13th.  The one I posted does have more details in it.  There is more to the article than the little bit I quoted.  I should have specified that.

But it’s not a big deal.  I just got a chuckle from it and thought I’d point it out. wink LOL

Heh ooops, sorry.  There should be a law against posting in the middle of the night. =)

I read some other articles from a day or two before, so maybe I assumed it was the same one.  Sorry =)
