LonelyCrack is a portmanteau of the words "Lonelygirl15" and "crack". Users who are addicted to the lonelygirl15 series refer to it as their drug, and jokingly claim to go through withdrawal when a video has not been posted for over a day. An example of usage would be "I need my fix of LonelyCrack... now!"
Addicts sometimes refer to themselves as LonelyCrack-heads or LonelyCrackers.
First use of the word LonelyCrack
NAXAN (send note) Says: November 25th, 2006 at 3:22 pm I for one am not afraid of new characters. The comments I made on the 24th had to do with WHAT this medium should be. And, no I have intentions of leaving LonelyCrack....err, Lonelygirl, because of new people. We will all be here to the end...
Symptoms of LonelyCrack Addiction
- Your opening comment to any video posted must include "FIRST!" (loudly) in the body of your comment (see also User:General Firstsayer).
- Return to the website daily, if for no other reason, to re-read the comments you read yesterday (or in the last ten minutes).
- Avoid all things Orange (especially Orange Slurpee, although Cherry, Grape and Cola have tested okay).
- Look suspiciously at any and all Girl Scouts (or any person in possession of Girl Scout Cookies).
- Ensure you have quarters available whenever you log on (for Lizard).
- Dwell on any mystery (related or not) for the sake of dwelling on mysteries.
- Keep all of your Marbles clean and shiny (if you have any left, mine went to Marbella).
- Make sure your local preschool DOES teach anagram solving.
- Find yourself saying "meep" in place of any swear word (unless your name is 707clique).

The Breakout Sessions
Proposed break-out sessions for the support group meetings:
- stuffed animal codependency
- anagram obsession
- Orange may not be as evil as thought
The Support Group Food
All food at the meetings should be rich in healthy, mood-enhancing endorphins:
- bundt cake
- chocolate cookies
- ice cream
A special recipe for "LonelyCrack Fudge" was provided by Withe:
Take an entire bag of any kind of chip (chocolate, peanut butter, cherry, white chocolate, whatever kind of baking chip you find in the bakery aisle at the supermarket) and dump it into a microwave safe bowl. Buy a tub of whatever cake icing you prefer. Dump about 4/5 of the container into the bowl with the chips. (You can save whatever's left in the container to ice the fudge if you prefer). Nuke it for 1 minute. Stir. Nuke it for another minute. Stir. Nuke it one more time at one minute, stir until it is all mixed together. Pour this melted yummy in your tummy concoction into a baking dish sprayed with a little bit of cooking spray, or rub a stick of butter on the bottom of the dish to keep it from sticking. If you want, you could sprinkle nuts on the top of the fudge while it's still hot. Give it time to cool (a couple of hours in the fridge works best). Then eat!
A joined meeting with "Fudge Overeaters Anonymous" is planned.
The Retreat Weekend
Since the LG15 - topics would never fit into our daily meetings at LG15.com, a retreat weekend was proposed.
Preferably in Paris (not Egypt!).
With the Eiffel Tower looming in the background.
In an Internet cafe (broadband connection mandatory).
The French word for "refresh" is: régénérez.
No longer in Need of Support?
You think you made it? Got a real life and managed a 48 hours abstinence from the comment boards?
Well, there is still one more test you have to pass, the NAXAN-test:
Bring this cake to the next support group meeting: Orange Cake
If you manage to bake it and eat a piece of it, you're officially clean!
Please bring your own witness for the test in case the other support group members have already run screaming out of the room before they can witness you eat!
The Support Group Board (respresented by krig) accepted the test as official with the words:
Orange bundt cake can be the litmus test of LonelyCrack-ishness.
A Poet's View on LonelyCrack
Lonelycrack; Its not an addiction.... It's something so fabulous and utterly irresistable......... We choose it. And why? It's fantasy. Wouldnt you rather believe this was real? The world lives for the fantasy. Like love Which I am experiencing. Yet not receiving. Lonelycrack; Love

Rebelgoddess (send note) Says: December 14th, 2006 at 12:38 pm And on some completely random unrelated in any way topic, because the lack of video is really not helping conversation...has anyone Terry Pratchett's new book Wintersmith? If not, you really should, it's great. Quote: The kitten rubbed up against Granny's legs and went 'meep'. I don't why I like that line...I think it's just the word 'meep'. Actually, it is related, coz that's where I found out that Enochi meant guilt, having coincidentally just read it before seeing the words 'Book of Enoch'... pretty cool, huh? Yes, little things please me. Anyway, do carry on the sensible discussion...

Symptoms of LonelyCrack: Dreams
Grace's Beef Jerky Dream
Cannot be found at present times
Joe's Interpretation of Grace's Beef Jerky Dream
Grace's Titanic Dream
so i was wandering around backstage of my school's theater. i went onstage and found that the actual stage had been rotated, so that the audience watched from both sides. the room had also been painted white. they were filming the last lonelygirl episode, and as soon as they stopped editing the scene around me faded out and then faded back in. bree was sitting on some broken steps at the end of the stage. she waved at me but didnt say anything. i turned around and bumped into daniel. i said 'oh, hi, yousef'. yousef said 'yousef? my name is DANIEL' i was like um ok but what are you doing here? daniel said 'i came to pick up my little sister' and i said 'oh. i didnt know you nhad a little sister..' then he got this really confused look and said 'um. gracie. YOU'RE my little sister.' and i was like 'WHAT'. daniel laughed and said 'very funny, gracie.' then he PATTED MY HEAD. i was like wow i did not know i was that short and so i looked in the mirror. it was the perfect image of me at age EIGHT. daniel came up behind me and said 'come on gracie we dont want to miss your ride.' i said 'why am i going on a ride?' and daniel said 'ill explain when oyu get back from ENGLAND.' suddenly i started panicking when i realized that i was not in an airport, but on a long pier. i said 'daniel, how is a plane going to get here?' he looked really confused again and said 'gracie, you hate planes. youre taking a SHIP.' suddenly i looked up and where i swear there was NOTHING before was a huge ship. i looked on the side where it said 'The Titanic'. i started crying and trying to run away. daniel just said 'its okay gracie. ill see you when you get back from england.' then he knelt down - yes, i was THAT short - and gave me a hug and patted me on the head. then lucy came up and took my hand and started dragging me towards the ship.
Joe's interpretation of Grace's Titanic Dream
"so i was wandering around backstage of my school's theater. i went onstage and found that the actual stage had been rotated, so that the audience watched from both sides."
You interpreted this part incorrectly. The rotation of the stage symbolizes the blurred line between actors and audience. Normally the actors tells the audience the story but in LG15 the audience helps tell the story as well.
"the room had also been painted white."
This is a new medium. Like an unpainted canvas that is white until the painting has been finished. Or in this case the story has been told.
"they were filming the last lonelygirl episode, and as soon as they stopped editing the scene around me faded out and then faded back in."
This is your transition from watching what is happening in your dream to being part of your dream.
"bree was sitting on some broken steps at the end of the stage. she waved at me but didnt say anything."
The broken steps symbolizes Bree's broken life. Her waving at you is to make sure you understand that you are now part of the dream by acknowledging your presence.
"i turned around and bumped into daniel. i said 'oh, hi, yousef'. yousef said 'yousef? my name is DANIEL'"
Stay in character stupid.
"i was like um ok but what are you doing here? daniel said 'i came to pick up my little sister' and i said 'oh. i didnt know you nhad a little sister..' then he got this "really confused look and said 'um. gracie. YOU'RE my little sister.'"
This is you subconscious telling you that you love Daniel like a little sister loves her brother. So stop thinking dirty thought about him, it's illegal.
"and i was like 'WHAT'. daniel laughed and said 'very funny, gracie.' then he PATTED MY HEAD. i was like wow i did not know i was that short and so i looked in the mirror. it was the perfect image of me at age EIGHT."
Your younger self is a representation of how children are unable to fully understand the world they live in. Or in this case the world of your dream.
"daniel came up behind me and said 'come on gracie we dont want to miss your ride.' i said 'why am i going on a ride?' and daniel said 'ill explain when oyu get back from ENGLAND.'"
England is where Gemma claimed to live. Gemma claimed to be Bree's friend and wanted to help her. She is not who she claimed to be. You are not who you claim to be and your dream is reminding you of this.
"suddenly i started panicking when i realized that i was not in an airport, but on a long pier. i said 'daniel, how is a plane going to get here?' he looked really confused again and said 'gracie, you hate planes. youre taking a SHIP.' suddenly i looked up and where i swear there was NOTHING before was a huge ship. i looked on the side where it said 'The Titanic'. i started crying and trying to run away."
The Titanic was suppose to go from England to US but sank. In your dream it is going in the opposite direction. So instead of a disaster your trip is the opposite of a disaster.
"daniel just said 'its okay gracie. ill see you when you get back from england.' then he knelt down - yes, i was THAT short - and gave me a hug and patted me on the head. then lucy came up and took my hand and started dragging me towards the ship."
Lucy, really. With you on the Titanic. Hmm? Ignore everything I've written. You have been chosen for something in real life and your dream is trying to tell you that the person "helping" you should not be trusted. If you let that person guide you it will end in disaster.
Grace's Pirates of the Caribbean/Fiddler on the Roof/Toaster Dream
basically i was on a ship. a pirate ship. keira knightley was wearing this pink and white striped sundress that my grandma's barbie used to have. she had all this lipgloss on. jack sparrow (NOT johnny depp - JACK SPARROW haha) came out of the ship-door-thing and waved. a big ghost came shooting out of the sky and swiped his sword. jack let out a man-grunt-screamish-yell and stole a sword from someone else. he battled the ghost for a while, then it was gone. ~BLACKOUT FOR A WHILE, THEN NEW SECTION OF DREAM~ jack sparrow wanted to direct a production of fiddler on the roof. we went into my middle school's auditorium (i know, what???) to rehearse. he gave us basic outlines of our parts - men, women, tevye's daughters - and we got to choose specific characters. i chose to be chava (shes my favorite). my elementary school friend shannon was there, but she was really short and reaaallly fat. she chose to be hodel. we started rehearsing 'matchmaker', but i didnt have the words. i practically had them memorized, though, (love that song, how nerdy does that make me?) but shannon insisted rthat i sing along to her ipod. i argued that it would mess up my voice. ~BLACKOUT, NEW SECTION~ i was standing at my kitchen counter and toast popped out of the toaster. i took one piece out easily, but the other piece was a bit stuck. i had to pull in out in strips. i kept imagining that the strips turned into little animated people. i remember thinking 'well, good thing i made toast, its breakfast time!'
Grace's 4-Year-Old-Blueberry-Pie Dream
my sister and i (i was 4, she was 6) were in a purple cave. with no exit. like a hole in a purple mountain. we were pressed up against the back wall wearing matching flower dresses (which we actually owned in real life). there was a fat construction-man-like guy sitting in a chair. he said 'the chesire cat wants to make oyu into.....BLUEBERRY PIE!!' me and my sister were screaming. the ghost of a cat would slither out from behind a refrigerator and we would both scream and cry.
at this point, i would be sitting up in my bed, screaming until my mom came in.
Sarahboo's McDonald Dream
i remeber once having a dream about a macdonalds slide that i climbed up, chandler from friends was at the top and the top was in the clouds and whilst sliding down i had a baby! then we got to the bottom and went to a big old house and had a barbeque then went on a trampoline and i fell off....(and that thing happened when u fall over in a dream and you wake up...hahahhaha was a funny dream
Deathstarpsycho's Bar Dream
Last night I had a dream that I owned a bar... (Nothing weird there because I'd someday like to own a bar/restaurant.) But the bar itself reminded me of Cheers and I was trying to find a band to play and all of the bands that were auditioning were hanging from the ceiling... My bartender comes out to tell me we're out of cherry cola and the bartender is Jonas. And then he says "Can I have some time off? A friend of mine just got married and I have to watch her stuffed animals." And then Bree's father's hat walked in and ordered an orange soda.
I dreamed that every page in the lgpedia was a tribute to me.
Last night I had a dream that mostly didn't make much sense, but in the dream I was a teenager still living with my parents, and towards the end, the phone rang, and my Dad picked it up. "Hello? ... What? Just a second..." He looked at me and said, "Are you expecting a call from someone named Allen Smithee?" I grabbed the phone from him, and sure enough, it was Daniel on the line.
I dreamed that BDJ and I (hence DJBJ, which, incidentally is my name when I produce rap music) were flying in a stealth Ch-47F Chinook across the Afghan-Iran border when we came under heavy fire from below — the Ground Forces of the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution were firing at us with RPG-7s. One of the grenades exploded just outside the front rotor, disabling the rotor and sending a blast of shrapnel into the cockpit, killing the pilot. Bree ran up and took the controls, but without the contra-rotation of the front rotor, the helicopter was torquing badly to the left. All we had with us were first-aid kits, so Daniel, Jonas and I just took out the needles used for suturing and started dropping them on the Iranian military.
After defeating the Iranian troops, our helicopter was still going down. Using only our Interceptor Multi-Threat Body Armor System tied together with bedsheets, we quickly created four parachutes and dove from our crashing helicopter into the mountains of Nimruz Province, Afghanistan. We hiked for nearly 500 kilometers to Kandahar, where Daniel went looking for an open wireless connection to upload some of the videos we had made and thank some of the fans for their prayers; Jonas, Bree and I went shopping for tanktops in the Pashtun marketplace.
Daniel found an open internet connection and found a series of mysterious blogs from "Raiyah" a young Arab girl with deep-brown eyes like wells of the very limpid oil which made her father wealthy enough that she owned a Logitech QuickCam and lived in a Silk-Road era Persian-palace. Jonas, who surprised us all by speaking a very passable Hazaragi-Farsi dialect, was able to determine that the girl was canon and that she was homeschooled and was learning a mysterious language.
Bree was convinced the girl was a member of the Order. I suggested that her father was likely just a conservative Afghan and the mysterious language was probably English, as she lived in a fairly remote palace which, using an IP sting with a fake MySpace account of a small Pakistani boy named Abu (after the monkey in Aladdin), we determined was in Quetta. Daniel and I broke into a military base, stealing a heavily-armored M998 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle from the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit.
Daniel slept in the backseat, while Bree and Jonas played a sexually-charged game of "I spy with my little eye...," and I drove through the mountains to Quetta. We found the girl's palace and Bree decided we should just murder her. Daniel, Jonas and I made a blog about how we weren't really happy about it, but decided to go along with it. I rammed the HMMWV through the 14th-century alabaster walls of the palace and Bree opened fire. As happy kismet and serendipity would have it, our initial volley of machine gun rounds killed none other than Osama bin Laden himself -- with only minor friendly-fire resulting in Daniel losing his premolars, which ironically we weren't able to suture because we'd used up the needles back in paragraph 1 of this dream.
As George Bush was handing us an over-sized $25,000,000 check for the OBL Ransom at a Rose Garden ceremony and Nancy Pelosi announced an Act of Congress guaranteeing Daniel life-long dental and otorhinolaryngological insurance coverage, it occurred to me that the LG15 plot hadn't been this linear in months; I awoke from the dream and went downstairs to make a strong cup of coffee.
I had a dream about how BDJ and I were looking for Jules, and when we found her, strangely enough it turned out that Jules was Lucy, because Jules pulled off her face and turned into Lucy. Then, she handed us over to Op, but Op decided to spare me because I was her favorite. I LOVE OPAPHID. =D silverX3 17:01, 18 May 2007 (CDT)
I can't remember the dream as well as I would have liked to, but all I remember was that Bree was acting a lot like Tachyon. She was taking charge, organizing operations, etc. Creepy part? **This was before Bree bonded with Tachyon!!**
I was chosen for the ceremony. Daniel guided me to that bridge, and he and i looked out on the water. all of a sudden i heard the famous, "oh dear." and a flash of light. daniel and i ran toward jonas and the watcher, who were about to fight, but we couldn't get there.
I had this crazy dream about Bree. I was in a kitchen, and she walks in with a scared look on her face. I look behind her and there are Carl and Sonia, chanting some creepy language. Bree starts screaming no! No! and I have no idea what to do, so i picked up a chair and threw it at sonia. Well, this made Carl go Nuts, but bree whacked him on the head with something metal, I couldn't tell what it was. They are both lying there unconscious, and bree smiles and says Thanks, guys. You saved me. Then she ran up the stairs to Jonas and Daniel and they all hugged. Im kind of tearing up, and she says "You saved me. I'm Alive." Then she vanished, and I woke up crying.
I was in the audience for some TV show, and Bree was being interviewed. It wasn't really an interview though, as all she was told to do was to design trophies to be won, but she did it anyway. Then after she finished, the presenter said they had more to come after the break, but everyone started getting up and leaving. I said to Daniel 'Is that IT?' and he said 'It was a distraction' and then he turned to someone else and said 'I really like a girl, but I think I blew it, because I kissed her' and he turned round and kissed Michelle Trachtenburg.
Then I saw Bree, and she was talking to this man, and touched a trophy in the middle of the room, and it took her to another room. She was scared, and there were men standing around with red faces who said she had to stay there, and that people were going to die. She saw a guy's profile, and then a voice said "He's now a lost soul, he's dead." Then she went to another room, and there was an invisible wall which stopped her from leaving.
