Beach Bum is the one-hundred forty-eighth video in the lonelygirl15 video series.


(Music plays and Daniel films the landscape and animals along a beach.)

Daniel: I decided to get away from it all, get away from Bree and Jonas, and just come out here and...and just film. Just get back to my roots, you know? It's just been crazy around the house and I'm kind of sick of dealing with it all, so.... Bree's been busy trying to get Jonas to forgive her, it's a, it's 24/7 entertainment. She tried to get me to talk to him for her, but...well, if you had free pay-per view, would you tell the cable company? Come on. I mean, really, she got herself into this mess, she can get herself out. I'm sure he'll forgive her...eventually. There's all these amazing photographs on the walls, all over the house. I was sort of nosing around the den and I came across this photo journal thing. I gotta tell you, Jonas's aunt, she's a, she's kind of an interesting woman. She's not much older than us, either. Basically, when she was in high school, she did this semester at sea thing. That's where you sail around the world with just a bunch of kids. You learn how to tie knots and stuff. I don't know, I thought it was cool. I always wanted to do something like that. I mean, I didn't like our high school, which is probably why Bree and I got along so well, and I hated our town. I don't know, I just think It'd be cool to sail out toward the horizon and.... Looking at her photo journal just got me thinking of how unnatural our lives have become. I mean, I used to want to be a filmmaker. Now it's... I don't know, there's pretty much no chance of that. Unless I turn this into some sort of documentary or something, I don't know. If only the Order paid us, paid us to be on the run, that would be great. If Jonas's aunt turns out to be a nice person, I might ask her to teach me some photography. She's got a sick camera. Maybe she'd let me take some pictures with her, or with it. It doesn't really hurt that she's kind of cute. Okay, really cute, all right, she's hot. I just feel like, I don't know, quit planning for the future and kind of enjoy life as it comes. I guess I should head back to the house now and see if bitter and bitterer are getting along yet. Probably not. What are they gonna do without D.B.?
