  1. I’m Jack – guess there is still hope =)

    This is amazing stuff Brian. Can I ask who is the creative guy behind the flash elements?

  2. The videos are illustrated in Flash by our own Tony Clark.

    Oh, and being Jack is good… you’ll get the most out of this blog. 🙂

  3. Still doing a great job! Very cool (and different) way to show others how they could make money online. Looking forward to the next one.

  4. Looking forward to more of this. My interest is definitely piqued.

  5. Brian: So far the three videos are interesting. Not yet sure where you are going with this, but I’m keeping it in my RSS reader and waiting and watching.

  6. Sarah Palin? Nah. Gimme Marla any day.

    Oh, btw, great video and nice continuum.

  7. I wanna be Marla when I grow up! Good stuff- can’t wait to see what’s next!

  8. I’am Lou waiting for Marla’ spirit waiking up 😉
    hey hey here we are !

  9. Seems like someone watched Fight Club a few times before coming up with these flash videos.

  10. Hey hey,

    who are you: Lou, Jack or Marla???

    Im still Jack, but soon Ill be “Marlo”

    p.s. I think Marla looks like Fight Club’s movie Marla…

  11. I really like the site so far and marla seems right where I want to be. This is the first blog I have ever subscribed to and I’m hoping to start my own in the near future to raise awareness and money for my short graduate thesis film. You videos are interesting and I can’t wait to see more.

  12. Thank you for your blog and videos!

    They are such an inspiration. I don’t feel like a weirdo anymore thanks to Marla.

    I hope I can get my full bakery of ideas out there like her some time soon. I am on my way 😉

    Gracias desde España.

  13. I usually don’t bother to comment on other peoples work.
    And by usually, I mean never.

    But these flash videos are just incredibly well done.
