Last summer, they became Vine's first reality stars, courting each other so publicly it was hard to believe it wasn't staged. As their online romance unfolded in daily updates, it became the biggest story Vine had ever seen, spawning countless hashtags, video tributes and talk of a reality show. When the couple Vined their plans to meet in New York, some 2,000 screaming fans mobbed Washington Square Park to watch their first kiss.

That moment when you realize you are getting old and are no longer in touch? Yeah. I has it.

Eh, I think there's a difference between being out of touch and having enough life experience to filter out the flash-in-the-pan trends that others obsess over.

Can you imagine that scene?  I am trying but I am sure it is ten thousand times more surreal than anything I can come up with.

They f*ucked on the first date. Consentual.

Then after 4 days she broke up with him.

The she accidentally hit her head and posted it on Vine. She got concussion.

She said she was "fine" but he came over to her hotel to "look after her".

They f*cked again and she cried rape. He got arrested.

Rape or not rape, this is a great line:

"He was lovingly waking her up."

Dennis from Always Sunny would be proud.

When you're on Vine, you become a brand. Everyone is a brand. I'm a brand, and there's nothing you can do about that.

Should I find that amusing? Sad? Horrifying?

Satan's Bunny Slippers: CeroX: Ugh...

I'm old... because apparently i have an attention span longer than 6 seconds and vines just annoy the shiat out of me  I have no farkin clue what vine is or why I should care.


*sigh*  Fixed to sound like me.

I really have never heard of these people, so when I say "who?", I'm not being snarky.....


Unfortunately we live in the age of the internet, so the moment some new internet trend pops up, it will be quite literally littered all over the internet, and there's really no way to avoid these things, but I can honestly say this trend is annoying as shiat upon watching my first "vines compilation" to figure out what the hubub was all about. But I too can say I have no clue who these people are or why I should care. I'm sure if i see a picture of them I will say something like "Oh, yeah, ok, i've seen someone post some drivel about them on [insert internet medium here]" and move on...
 
2014-05-22 09:50:21 AM
Surely 6 seconds is plenty of time to get to know someone.

I say this as a libtard demoncrat.  Rick Santorum is way smarter and more interesting than this story.  Santorum, the frothy kind, is smarter than this story.
 
2014-05-22 10:18:19 AM
6 seconds.  140 characters.  Can we start calling them the stupids.
 
2014-05-22 10:32:01 AM
Huh, it seems "internet celebrities" and Vines or whatever trumps the rage in thread vs. the normal frothing, emotionally charged rape/rape/grey area/legitimate rape discussion.

"I am not a rapist," Curtis Lepore tells me... he went straight-edge as the lead singer of a hardcore band, GhostXShip, and he quit his job as a financial planner. "He was always trying to find his niche," recalls his childhood friend, Michael Ringold.  After a rift with his band, Lepore moved to L.A. in January 2013 to pursue a career in video-game graphics. But while unemployed and couch-surfing at friends' homes, he stumbled on a more compelling diversion: Vine..."

Writer's thought process:

1. Vine, an Internet fad involving 6-second videos, is popular because of short attention spans.
2. Welp, time to write 5 pages on two Viners' background and proclivities.
3. People will totes read through all of this.

Bonus: Hey, this thought process lasted 6 seconds. I should make a Vine about it.
