VD Music Video Challenge Champion: theburg.tv

Congratulations to theburg.tv, music video makers who overcame a formidable field of entrants to stand with past Vlog Deathmatch winners in the pantheon of history.

The variety, breadth of talent, and artistry in this deathmatch was inspiring. We reached wider and farther than ever before to bring creators into the fold.

While I'm always rooting for the knives to be sharpened and the ugly side of competition to rear its head, these contestants conducted themselves with grace and class. Kudos to you all.

But of course, there cannot be a winner unless everyone else loses. This is the nature of Vlog Deathmatch--a zero sum gain--and it is incontrovertible. The glory belongs to theburg.tv, and the rest of you are simply cast into the dustbin of history.

Perhaps someday the light of victory will shine on your path to righteousness, but for now losers must wander alone in the dark waiting for another opportunity to demonstrate that your parents were wrong about your choice to pursue online video as a career.

Theburg.tv owns Bedford Ave. while the rest of you ride at least two L stops into East Williamsburg.

this contest has definitely opened my eyes to content on the net... Congrads on the win. it was quite fun trying to drum up enough votes to be a contender, and worth the effort.

Kathleen... hats off to you and the crew for making a future/retro video that was impossible to beat.

Way to go Kathleen, Thom and crew!

This blanquito was just happy to have a Metrocard and a Brooklyn train to ride in the first place.
