ZOMG, U Tube Haxxorz!!!11

What is UP with all the freakin YouTube hacker posts? School's out, and the kiddies are bored?

Got these three in the last two days:

if someone by the name of Mark Genesis Gallardo (rugbylegend) wants to add you to their list, don't accept it. It's a virus. Tell everyone on your list because if somebody on your list adds them you will get it, too. It is a hard drive killer and a very horrible virus. Please pass this on to everyone on your list. We need to find out who is using this account. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Copy and paste in a new bulletin for all your friends

Show you care. SPAM YOUR FRIENDS! Hey, it'll save your hard drive.

As you know, there are many hackers on our site. One of these hackers is nickobop918.
He has been removing videos and deleting account by hacking. You do not need to report him because that also sets off the timer which you will read about soon. If you do not repost this in atleast twenty-four hours as "Youtube Hacker" we will delete your account. We have developed a timers sytem that deletes your account when the timer ends. Reading this bulletin sets off the timer and the only way to stop it is by copying this exactly and then reposting it along with this code: >&023vf10jm-1-fbfb2=bd-time=png24hrs<

This code sets off the timer and any attemps to mess with the code when reposting will get your account removed.

Sincerely, The Youtube Service

My account is in trouble. YouTube is run by 12-year-olds.

Edit June 15: 24 hours later. I STILL HAVE A YOUTUBE ACCOUNT.

YouTube has found these dangerous hackers who are messing with the system...repost this to warn everyone about this difficultty...repost this or you will get suggested as the hacker and get banned from youtube forever,,,YOUR ACCOUNT DEPENDS ON IT

Sincerely, YouTube Team

P.S. Because of this technical difficulty...we will be moderating random stream chatrooms and comments for suspicion it the YouTube Service, or YouTube Team? How many monkeys are running this joint?!

May the Best Man Win!

This is not a video I intended to showcase, but I'm doing it, anyway! All over the frickin' place. Gotta get those views, somehow.

I write a blog on Sims99, voiced as my Bogus character, Shep, and it's been quickly gaining in popularity. Shep won the very first Sims99 "Blogger of the Week" award, last week (shout-out to Dwelliford!). Shep's shtick is to be as vocal as possible, but never have anything to write about. So he makes something out of nothing.

For"Shep's"...latest entry, "Oh, It's Been Broughten!", I had been, as usual, stuck for material (Shep comes by his "shtick" honestly). And I have this self-imposed deadline that was creeping up on me. I knew I *had* to do something with the fact that Shep's feature video, "Only", had won Best Film in February, and his twin brother, Scott's video,"Only Time", had won Best Film in May over on Sims99. There was already some fraternal competition brewing because...well...Scott married Shep's girlfriend. SO, the idea of a contest of Olympic-sized proportions, to win the love of a girl, was born. Let the drama ensue! Or the comedy, as the case may be.

This was not made with the intent of ever being reviewed, so it's not polished. I literally did this, from conception to final render, in 9 hours, max. I didn't even make a proper credit roll. I accidentally left out the name of the artist who did the music, Bill Conti. I made the video just for the blog entry, but was talked into submitting it, because - hey - I'm a sucker for flattery.

Here's a link to Shep's "award-winning" blog (*wink wink*), for the background story:

Of Angst and Shepitude

Hope you enjoy!
