List of LonesomeOctober's videos

LonesomeOctober is a YouTube and Revver user who has posted videos in-character as Purple Monkey and Owen. He stated in Purple Monkey Jumps the Shark that he is in no way affiliated with the Lonelygirl15 project and he would not be posting any further videos related to Lonelygirl15 for the foreseeable future. He quickly contradicted this assertion with Owen's Still so Angry a few days later on Revver, though there have been no more postings on YouTube to date. The videos did indeed continue through November 2006, but have since been absent.

In LonesomeOctober's videos, P. Monkey is a he, though this probably has more to do with the author's sex than P. Monkey's, as Bree has referred to it as both "she" and "he".
