okay so i know i been talkin about my project for the past 6 months.

well the time has come.

i have been developing a site thats basically youtube meets blackplanet meets myspace. a video sharing/social networking site geared toward the young urban demographic.

it will also feature established filmakers such as spike lee as well as up and coming filmakers, with full length feature film.


right now we are in an alpha phase of development. meaning that it is not ready for a wide release for beta tests. we just want to get an idea of where we stand as of now and where we need to go before we inject new funding. the meat of the site is the database functions and the content delivery.



i need about 10-15 people who would be willing to test and give feedback over the next 30 days.

preferably non-white members, being that my site is geared toward black/latino/"urban" demographic but yall crackers(this weeks buzzword) are welcome.


this is a huge project, not some doit yourself website. its at $200k
worth of investment right now with an additional $.5M by the end of the summer.
by this fall there will be an all out media blitz and nationwide radio/web/print/celebrity mktg campaign.


so sign in here and i will hook you up with access and instructions.
if there are more than 15 people willing to help, i will pick and choose.

I would like to test if it involves money.

I'm white and middle class, but I can probably act black.

Ill do it. That word "urban" though, its so outdated now to me, i think anyone under 40 using that word on thur websites is asking for a fail.

p.s as long as this is not one of those money-making scams where someone else asks you to find 20 other people to sign up to a thing, and then those 20 peoples also find 20 people each, and all the money ends up in one persons pocket.....

"urban" is played out yes, but when i said it you knew exactly what i was talking about. urban and hiphop are interchangeable.

this is a black youtube type of site. but focusing in on film and tv as well as user generated content.

the testing will just be simple registration, watching the vids, using the messaging functions and giving feedback, suggestions, reporting bugs ect. also filling out a 20 qusetion online survey at the end of the testing period.




no money is involved but possibly some incentives from my sponsors. idk i'll come up with something.



vza, go to your room.your mom said she caught you wanking to the lingerie section of the sears catalog again.

at least ur honest.

damn well i have to pay an 8k/month payroll, i just spent a new toyota camry worth computers and servers and a colocation service.
200k does not go that far.

the next rd of investment...a huge chunk of that wil go to site redesign and IT development.

150k will be mktg for the launch, half of which will go into a certain celebrity's pocket (greedy mf).


and you wanna get paid to watch vids on my site, when you do it on youtube (300 billion) for free?
smh....niggas.

I know you aint Just Blaze but when he had a forum he had members test things and gave away free merch. Ppl emails are still catching free shit off his main page that he still runs.


anyway , I see you and what up and going on and ,yeah , I'll help out.

room for more

testing won't start for a few weeks prolly 1st week in august.
there will be about 100 total testers.

i'll see what i can do about free merch. right now i don't have any official offical sponsors. i do know i can get yall some exclusive screenings to the new spike lee film and some other flicks that are unreleased. maybe some posters or something.


i will be doing alot of travel soon to meet with potential sponsors. i am trying to coordinate scheds with kimora lee, kanye, coke (again), and cadillac. so i'm not ruling out merch, but as of today i don't have much to offer except being part of something big. bigger than alot of you are prolly willing to believe.


yeah the new sigs are coming soon to a theater near you. vatican and cool kids table only.


ruger got the exclusive. but thats just the demo reel. wait till the muhfucka is animated.

its nothin personal to the white folks but it doesn't make sense to get extensive feedback on a site oriented for black folks. it would be like askin some chinese to be a focus group for telemundo.

but i do know some of yall are tech experts. now i could use that kind of help.

i usually come up with cool ideas and shit so if you ever need suggestions and shit, im there.

my friend had an idea to make a website oriented towards signing a petition to support his schitzophrenic uncle.

his uncle has he semen stolen by the goverment cause they gave him blow jobs for 15 years straight, he has the royal blood of america and caroline kennedy wants his sperm.

so it's an anti-government rape petition, and it'll have vidoes of him doing and saying hilarious shit.

then if it gets big enough we'll make more petitions for shit like a petition for Brandy Taylor to do a porno with him for example.

problem is the guy throws out ideas and never follows through like a douche and it's pissing me off, if i had a camera i would do it myself.
