Look closely — Officecam and GGJeffy are the only icons and neither are really broadcasting

It was strange not to see Justin’s icon yesterday morning, but this morning is the dawn of a new day. There are just two icons, two lifecaster streams, but all that’s being fed is the mounted Officecam shot of an empty office and Jeffy’s cute splash screen with a graphic of Mr. T and an announcement crawling on the screen that he will resume broadcasting at 2 PDT. Justine was on until she lost battery power before take off at O’Hare this morning. So, all in all … there is NOTHING happening at JTV! I totally understand that lifecasters need sleep or downtime, but this speaks to the issue of needing lifecasters in many time zones so that when people tune in, there is something to watch. I’m not sure people will hang in until July 16th for the launch of lifecasting to the masses. Justin and team may need to do some heavy duty publicity to bring people in again if they start loosing them in droves these next 16 days.

And Now for Something Completely Different

Justin has needs. We all know that. We all have needs. Some need shelter, others need love, and many need food and then there are those that need — well, you know.

I was out looking for the Blue Moon, but can’t seem to find it tonight so I put up this old shot in it’s honor

In the tip list today was video of our boy Justin tuning in to some hard core porn. The resolution was horrible of course, it was difficult to see, but there was no mistaking it — it was flat out, hard core stuff. So it makes me ask a few questions:

  1. Does Justin continue to think we are all a bunch of idiots? What, he thinks we haven’t figured out how to tip portions of the broadcast for all to see?
  2. Does Justin’s partners know he broadcasts porn, whether intentionally or not?
  3. Do JTV VC’s and investors know Justin broadcasts porn?

Notice I didn’t cast an opinion about whether or not I care if Justin views porn — this is about broadcasting it. Now Jacob, I know you wrote to me about the cursing they do and how the Fratboyzz or JTV Executives can say and do what they want, that it’s about protecting the investor’s and keeping the smut off the front page, but hello! Isn’t this just the type of thing you are trying to prevent investors from seeing?

It’s confusing.

Lifecasters Looking for Support?

I tuned back in and saw Parris and Mooncricket in the Officecam room “wandering around,” looking kind of lost. Parris was making statements that seemed to speak to problems with getting his broadcast going today:

  • 11:28 parrisharris: They cant break us yeah ( ROOOOOOOOOOCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKK )
  • 11:29 justopia: hahahaaha!
  • 11:36 itsmycrapstats: -> skyhigh <- “mmm… tasty.”
  • 11:49 parrisharris: how r u all
  • 11:51 parrisharris: We going to make this ( Justin tv is a family )

He sure did seem to be happy to be streaming, didn’t he? Gotta love such a bright, positive personality.
Back to the JTV Fun

Jeffy’s broadcast was great entertainment again last night. I laughed until I cried at times and in general, at the end of the day when the world was filled with news of an apparent attempted terrorist threat in London and the iPhone frenzy, spending time with 2D friends in GGJ world was a nice departure.

At one point, Jeffy pulled out his violin to TRY to play along with the music video he was broadcasting. Jeffy, sorry buddy, but I think it’s time to either practice (with no one around) or to take lessons.

P R E T E N T I O U S

I tuned into Sarah when Jeffy’s feed went down. She was there with her peers (I assume) in what looked like that place Justin took us to about 100 days ago — the place bloggers go to hang out and blog together. I can’t confirm this though and was not interested in being berated by Sarah Meyers and her pals for asking a few questions — “What is this place? Who are the people you are with? What do you do there?” I think the keyword for the Sarah Meyers stream is Pretentious. Thank you Choad for mentioning the word, it fits 100%. The funny thing was that right after you said that, she went on about how she thinks the address for her stream should be Sarah.tv not Justin.tv/Sarah. She is dissing her viewers in what she must think is so subtle that even the village idiot could not figure it out voice. But she lost at least 2 viewers in the span of about 5 minutes because of her rude behavior.

Cold day in … Virginia

I am not sure what gives Sarah Meyers the belief that she is the only smart one between Sarah Meyers and her viewers? An example was this evening when txballa was being txballa — making his usual comments which most of us have gotten used to. She saw some of it and said, “Ummm txballa, I can see what you’re writing,” as though tx was too stupid to know this. It seems as though most people that have been coming in to chat on JTV like to interact with the lifecasters and live for them to speak back — clearly understanding that the lifecasters can read what is scrolling by in chat. Often making their comments more outrageous just for this purpose. One of her pals at the gathering tonight said, “Your viewers want you to like them.” Uhhh… hello! If you’d done your research before putting the camera on your head, you would have known this. Check Justine’s room — people clammor to get her attention to get her to acknowledge them. I like how people do business here — no due dilligence — no trying out the product before adopting it. This way of life is beyond me and I find it infuriating.

Calling the viewers “Weird” or “Ridiculous” is not a way of engendering your viewers to your broadcast. As I said last night Sarah, if you are doing this you WANT viewers. You should not be making a point to run them off.

  1. Did I ever mention how much I dig the fact that your podcast versions of your blog have bumper music? Far out.
