I agree 100%
Hoax or not I think this is good for ats either way.
If its a hoax then we can say we weeded out another one.
If its real and we can help the guy or at the very least try then we can say we weren't one of those rude websites that egged him on and had no class.

I do hope it's not real, in that he seems like a genuine sort of person and the sort I'd like to know.

And I'll keep watching the videos until they stop. Not out of a morbid curiousity or because I want to see the 'inevitable' (if it really is).

But because they are genuinely interesting and I want to know more about him as a person. Sadly, if this is the only way, then so be it. I hope it isn't.

When I saw the latest video (first one I saw) I must say, for a couple seconds I thought it was some sort of social experiement as the guy reminds me a lot of the Jeremy Davies aka Daniel Faraday from "Lost".

As bad as this might sound, I really do hope it's not real and instead, just a strange piece of 'art' or misplaced-social commentary experiement. I really do.

Obviously this whole thread is about opinions... heres mine
He bought a domain name that will get attention
Hes posting these videos that barely are directed towards his close friends and family (more filmed towards a general audiance)
The whois is private (why keep that private if he is clearly showing his face)
And the biggest thing i cant get passed is his acting..it is very poor.. it is obvious that he is making everything up..

This is a hoax... and its upsetting because its stirring up everyone...and people are telling there own very personal stories because this situation is sad...

P.s. someone on youtube called him 'Jimmy' in a comment....maybe a new clue?

Sorry all, but I have to say it ... what an attention seeking *SNIP*

Don't fall for it and pander to his cravings.

All I hope is that if he does do it that he doesn't inconvenience people on their way to work. Few months back some loser jumped in front of the train and I was late for work. Not pleased. If he hates his life so much stop seeking attention by holding up mine.

Call me insensitive, whatever.

Well thats one way to feel about it. Like I said in a recent post, this is at least entertaining. As far as wasting your time, well, you could just stop watching, or stop giving him attention on this thread then voila, it goes away, right?
-or-
Maybe your made because you CANT stop watching. You bookmarked the page and keep checking back to see if theres any new blogs.

I find this guy captivating, and with a few things he's said, we've got alot in common. But then I have alot in common with Spiderman.
At least we know He's fake.
I don't know if its true or not but again, its worth listening to while I down my Frosted Flakes.

What you said at the beginning stuck with me though.
I know from Creative writing courses in college that when writing a story you'll know you succeeded if people can both hate and love the Hero.

You hate this guy, I like him.
At least we can both agree that someone wrote a perfect script, aye?

damn, that's my neighborhood..I'm in hollywood, not 5 mins away from the location of the last two pics..but, no I'm not gonna scour the streets for him. You guys notified LAPD and suicide prevention, that's enough, unless some new info pops up, I'm still suspecting a ploy for attention/celebrity here..you really don't know how low some folks here will go..you really, really, don't.

In the second video hes in a shopping center that I thought looked like Glendale. I think I was wrong but it gives enough of a view and shows interesting landmarks that it cant be hard find. Like those Stone Elephants?
Cant be too many of those in the LA area.

Found them
The Elephants are the Kodak Theater in hollywood as well.



Thats where hew as in the second video.

...except, he's obviously not in California.

Based upon his most recent video, I would guess he is staying at Treasure Island and was walking through the overpass towards the Venetian...or maybe he is actually staying at the Venetian.

I'd recommend sending his picture to the police in Vegas and to the hotel management at both hotels to see if he can be found.



EDIT:

After looking a Google maps again, The Mirage is also a possibility.

Here are the numbers:

Treasure Island (TI)
3300 Las Vegas Blvd. S, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Phone: 702-894-7444 - Toll Free: 800-944-7444 - Fax: 702-894-7414

Venetian Resort Hotel Casino
3355 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Phone: 702-414-1000 - Toll Free: 888-283-6423 - Fax: 702-414-4800

Mirage Hotel and Casino
3400 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Phone: 702-791-7111 - Toll Free: 800-627-6667 - Fax: 702-791-7414

Other possibilities...

And here is the Vegas Police Department:

LVMPD General Information-- (702) 828-3111

I would suggest emailing the first and last video post of this guy to the police and let them know that you have also contacted the hotels suggested above.

I think he lives in LA. He said he was going on a road trip, remember?
Granted hes probably still on it so your correct.

BTW, is it just me or does anyone feel like hes leaving clues as to who he is, where he is or what this is all about? Something in what he shows us, what he says...do you think he might be playing a "Catch me if you can" game?

Its obvious he's started in Hollywood at least. Hollywood sign, Hollywood Blvd...
I lived there a few years ago and the only people I knew who were in Hollywood were people who placed themselves in Hollywood to make it big, either as actors, producers, or writers. Granted this isnt always the case.
But if it is, what could it mean? Something to keep in mind.

That is the point. Your best chance of finding him is NOW.

Now, and I've never looked at 'whois' before...but was the domain registered in 2005? Do you think was a 'project' that this guy was working on? And now he just started putting stuff up?

No, this domain was purchased by him on Jan. 23rd I believe.

Well a road trip is just that. A trip. He may go back to LA before the day is out.
But it seems we dont have enough information at this point to figure out if hes on a trip, or on a final sight seeing tour of the Southwest. Hell I wouldnt be surprised if tomorrows video shows him at the Grand Canyon.
I'd just watch each day and maybe we'll figure it out. If not, then theres not a whole lot we can do.

His Youtube account was started Jan24th 2009 and its called "vidzforthefam"
Probably specifically for this thing.

Edit: hmmm
Domain bought Jan23rd
Youtube account started 24th.

Almsot seems like this whole idea might have been thrown together in a week instead of a year, as he says.

In addition to the options mentioned above in my previous posts, someone should look at Google maps and find a parking garage next to any of the following catholic churches:



Link.

If you're really ambitious, you could email each one of them his picture and a link to his blog. I'm sure any one of those churches would have a comprehensive email list of the other LA Catholic churches.

This is likely the next best bet.

I just got a reply back from the Las Vegas suicide prevention people.




Thank you for your concern and for sharing this with us. I am sending this down to my colleague in Las Vegas and we will see what we can come up with. Please pass on any updates and we will do our best.



Take care,

Misty

We now have people in the city that might actually take the time to find him.

Too many vairables.

Maybe Its just me but I dont think I heard him say he was next to the church.
Its probably an educated guess, but not definite though.

He might have been at a church his mother went to in San Diego.

Even then, what could we find out? He said he went to church for the last time.

Not bad ideas, just seems like we'd be better off just watching the videos, than spinning our wheels stopping a "possible" suicide of a man we dont know.

But then, I'm in the boat that says its just a hoax, or, as I'm sure he would say" "Part of his art form as a filmmaker."
