How to Take the Money and Run
Been a busy summer. Finally catching up on things. Me & Richard Head had the opportunity to hang out and shoot the breeze for the first time in a while.
While we were journeying about the countryside, we did this interview with some folks over at The Daily Dot.
Take a looksee if you want a peek back into the early days of Demand Studios and Demand Studios Sucks.
Patrick and Richard interviewed on The Daily Dot.
Hey kids –
Hope things are well. Everything still running along here at DSS HQ. We’re just keeping the fires lit until Demand Media or Studio D or whatever they’re calling it these days finally gets flushed down the toilet. The latest analyst reports show that they might be hanging on for a while, so I guess we’ve still got some work ahead of us.
Got this email in the letterbox not too long ago and wanted to share it with everyone. Has anyone out there in DSS-land come across anything similar?
I recently saw a ad on craigslist from an unknown company saying they will pay me $75 for 20 minutes of my time, I got curious and emailed about it, got a reply asking for my phone number and an appropriate time to get a hold of me.
Later I got contacted by a lady named Patty and she told me a little more about it (but not much more) and told me to download teamviewer for my computer and that someone will be getting in touch with me shortly, thinking it was fishy I continued only because I was familiar with teamviewer and in my eyes I could stop access to my computer at any moment.
Later someone by the name of Amy got in touch with me and prompted me to log into my facebook and then teamviewer so that she may only use my facebook for about 15 minutes. While she was on she when to my ad management changed a couple of things, added a lady named Rose Debani then added a page, went back to ad management and used her credit card on something then logged off of teamviewer.
She asked for my paypal info and said she would get a hold of me tomorrow to see if I will get paid and that was it.
She said the company that she works for is Demand Media and onn the teamviewer call it said Demand Media LLC or something to that effect.
Does this sound weird to you? I would love a response!
Hope you guys are ok out there and have moved on to bigger and better things. We’re keeping the site alive just out of a sense of history – if anyone ever wants to know about Demand Studios and eHow, here’s the story in all it’s sordid detail.
This email popped up in our inbox and we just had to share.
The funny thing is that both Richard and I still have permissions. I went in and checked the queue just for a laugh and discovered I could still claim the one or two articles that were up there.
It was a good run while it lasted.

Yeah, know it’s been a while since we rapped at ya, but not much seems to be going on at the Demand, er, excuse me, Studio D front.
Pretty funny. If you told me 5 years ago I’d still be updating this site, I would have laughed.
I logged into Studio D the other day just for the fun of it only to find the queues all empty. So sad. I still remember the glory days of writing ten articles on the same subject.
Maybe that’ll stir up some comments. Back in the day (let’s say 2009-2010), what was […]
