We just completed the first, unofficial, official, virtual meeting of the newly-formed COUNCIL OF CO-CONS.

Thank yous to our first victims: Miss Malevolent, ZehnKatzen, Jason Elliot, Ryan Hunter.

Maria Diokno from My Damn Channel is reaching out to a rotating group of humanoids who’ve contributed to the building of our baby so far with comments, feedback, emails, video uploads, hate mail n’ flowers.

As we head past our first 21 million views into phase 2 of DAMN – we’re recommitting to opening up more access, control, and LIVE interaction into your heads and hands.

Feedback from Friday:

– overall site navigation scored as high as 9 on the 10 scale, but one neg called it a “shrinking violet” ? have to revisit the notes to ponder?

– Home Page scorecard gets a 7.5 on the 10 scale with requests for a bit more about WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO to be added for the uninitiated

– this Blog (The Night Feed) & the Damn, News items are lost to many since they sit at the bottom of the home page, better placement needed & their text makes them look like google ads

– predictable mega great grades for YSAP & for the brand new Big Fat Brain series: SNATCHBUCKLER’s SECOND CHANCE

– surprisingly good grades for the new experimental home page feature: DAILY GRACE from Grace Helbig….they like you! they really like you! – cautions for us not to overproduce or muck it up were heard

– lower grades for Andy Milonakis….hey Andy: the peops want MORE !

– suggestions went round a bit about a ‘point system’ for ‘super-users’ (more later)


– asks for more ‘behind the scenes’ with our artists/channels & a PRIVATE PHOTOSHOP LESSON WITH DONNIE HOYLE if he ever comes back

– more later> THANKS as well to My Damn Channel humans: Paul Gallagher, Kim Brannon, Brad O’Farrell for making this happen

– Commercialus Interruptus gets pretty good grades with most able to swallow the new Google Adsense for Video for its relevance to the video you’re watching & for your ease at swatting away the flies for good with just one X off the ad.

– these lower third ads scored better than pre-roll – of course – but some are open to the reality of bringing in a few bucks this way – IF – the pre-rolls are no longer than :15 – and – if there’s a frequency cap so the same damn ad doesn’t keep returning during the same visit to our site

– email if you wanna be a future CO-CON
