      You guys remember my Alphabetical Hierarchy video?

      Of course you don't. If anything, you remember my Hot Girl in the Shower video.

      What? what? Did I link to the same video twice?

      Well, yes. Because they are the same video. But I've been thinking a lot about my titling choices for that particular video. I named it "Hot Girl in the Shower (Talking About the Alphabet)", primarily because I found it amusing and it was parodying other videos that were parodying other videos that were... oh, you get the idea. I think we can end this little personal meme now.

      Why this is relevant is because Hot Girl in the Shower now has over 800 views. I suspect, considering that only a week ago it had slightly over 500 views, that it will be over a thousand in another couple of weeks.

      Which is awesome. Totally awesome.

      Except that I looked at the stats and 90 percent of people drop out in the first 20 seconds.

      Oh, and also the primary audience for that video is men 55 and older.

      And now I'm feeling a little creeped.

      To be fair, it's not like I am completely naive of the world around me and didn't consider the consequences of naming the video as I did. I even say in the description, "What do you want to bet this attracts the wrong crowd?"

      Certainly there's a marketing element in naming a video something salacious, because it pops more--but at the same time, if you only attract people who are looking for something other than what you have, you've failed as a marketer.

      Honestly, I thought that the (Talking About the Alphabet) part of my video title demonstrated the obvious parody intended by my title choice and would keep the creepers at bay, but when I went to see where much of my audience was coming from, my video was in the "Related Links" sidebar of other shower videos with only the "Hot Girl in the Shower (Talking" section of my title showing. Maybe "Talking", there at the end, would lower the excitement generated by "Hot Girl in the Shower", but I could be talking about anything.

      So, is my title a success or a failure?

      I haven't decided yet. Videos with higher views rank higher in search results, and having one video with higher views may raise the rankings of my other videos. All of this could lead to more audience members actually interested in the types of videos I make.

      But as of yet, I suspect that it has not.

      It occurs to me that I really should have posted last week's zombie heavy page today.

      As is, I don't actually have any new content for you today unless you want to see gratuitous pictures of me after being beat up.

      384083_2486666121377_1094384085_3066261_

      Oh, I'm sorry, I meant pictures of me dressed as a biker girl for Halloween.

      310405_2486666401384_1094384085_3066262_

      Perhaps not as good as my zombie apocalypse survivor costume from last year, but I do so enjoy any excuse to draw on myself.

      Casey needs to talk less. His ranting got all over my pretty pictures.

      Trying to do more to differentiate the boys' appearances. I'm giving Casey a slightly rounder jawline than Devin, and messed with their eyebrows a bit.

      That first panel is the house I grew up in. It's always fun to add in little references that I wouldn't have drawn otherwise.

      You may want to check to see if you read last week's comic. It had fewer views than usual.

      Should I keep doing the first/previous/next thing on the comics or just link to the new website for the archive? Keep in mind when answering this question, that it is a huge pain to make/update those links every week.

      I am already regretting the decision to give individual strips names.

      Devin's mom's car is a 2008 Kia Rio. I wanted something clearly slicker and newer than Charlie's car while still not being very expensive. I picked the Kia Rio primarily for what I am fondly calling its racing stripe.

      I'm pretty happy with the art on this page. I obviously still need to work on facial build for various angles, and this was my first doing pen shading on a page so there are a few issues there, but overall my art is definitely improving.

      As always, click to see full-sized. Also, check out the comic's new website and tell me what you think. That's where I was last week, if anyone missed me.

      From left to right (and also in order of comic appearance), Devin, Casey, Eliza, and Oliver.

      I'd better not hear any complaints of a filler page. This took me twice as long as I spend on the average story page.

      I'll probably do a bit more with the arch/sky, once I figure out how I want it to look.

      That's the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, if anyone didn't know. I had a friend in New York City who had no idea what the St. Louis arch was, even after I showed him pictures of it. He was like, "Why should I know about it?" I replied, "It's a landmark. I know about the Empire State Building, and I didn't grow up here." And he said, "Of course you do. Everyone knows about things in New York, but no one cares about some structure in the midwest."

      He was very New York City centric.

      I *wish* I didn't eat. I tend to have MASSIVE sugar cravings and eat horribly in the couple of days just leading up. Mostly, the journal was that I had a coffee-butterscotch schnapps... even though I don't drink coffee. I just needed something warm and alcoholic to help the cramps.

      Would you want to participate in a writing brainstorm session? I kinda want to schedule one soon. One for writers to get together and write a story together or play games. Message me back. I'm debating on whether we should start a group or if we could do an AIM/MSN party.

      LFTO has a new webcomic now! Check it out at this site!

      We also hit the 1000-page milestone. I did a group image for that - see it here (note that I only included people I did an avatar of already in the image).

      Life can take up some time.

      You've missed a bit in LFTO...

      Things are pretty loose with know new videos coming out (at least you haven't missed anything there!).

      Don't be scared - and what's 8000 posts between friends?

      Hi <<avatar>>!

      At LFTO Networking, we invited group members (just like you <<avatar>>) to create a logo for ourselves. We'll use it for our own merch - t-shirts, coffee mugs, you name it.

      We'd love it if you could check the designs out and vote! We're contacting you personally <<avatar>> because here at LFTO Networking, we believe in that personal touch. After all, that's why you signed up on <<signUpDate>>, isn't it <<avatar>>? And hey: why not invite <<option::listFriendAvatar01;listFriendAvatar02;listFriendAvatar03>> to join?

      Please check in to LFTO Networking and vote for your fave design.

      We hope to see you <<option::"soon";"dead";"in prison">>, <<avatar>>. Keep it real!

      I was mostly kidding. I feel like if I knew who had neg modded me, it would make it easier for me to understand where that neg mod came from. It really wouldn't bother me that much, but I can see a bunch of other people getting pissed.

      And yes, a Merry Christmas to you too!
