Desperately seeking Tollbooth Girl (the VINE thread)  Reply with quote  

HOW TO EMBED VINES:

Take the "iframe" shit out of the beginning and change it to "embed".

Code:

<embed class="vine-embed" src="http://www.vine.co/v/bVFhrQOOhUu/embed/simple" width="480" height="480" frameborder="0">

<embed class="vine-embed" src="http://www.vine.co/v/bYuUBzJhFWh/embed/simple" width="480" height="480" frameborder="0">

<embed class="vine-embed" src="http://www.vine.co/v/b36tzzqZIjb/embed/simple" width="480" height="480" frameborder="0">

Since Android users can now use Vine, my chances of finding Tollbooth Girl have increased! Here's a brief rundown...
B. Dolan and I encountered her while making this Vine:

Tollbooth Girl was very understanding about us holding up traffic because, as she mentioned, she is also on Vine. I don't know her handle and I regret not asking. The very next day I called "Missed Connections in Maine" and left this message:

Now with the a whole new audience of droids, I decided it was time to kick off an official search party:

Liam was no help:

Lionel mocked me:


Here's the sad conclusion to the Tollbooth Girl saga...

RIP coffee maker:


The trade off (goodbye Tollbooth Girl):


Money can't buy you love, but...


If you are viewing these from your computer, make sure to click the red X so you can hear the audio.
If you hate Vine, and you hate me for having a foolish hopeful heart, please forgive me. I am allotted 6 seconds of fun per day.

If anyone knows how to embed Vines on this forum please let me know. I'd love to start a Vine thread. Most vines are awful, but I come across at least a couple amazing ones every day.

Awesome!

I just got Vine yesterday now that it's on Android and I've really been enjoying it already. (and have already made a couple incredibly mundane and amateur stop motion animations).

I did a google to see if this tollbothgirl thing was taking off, and I came up with this:

This could be the next "broken wings"!

HOW TO EMBED VINES:

Take the "iframe" shit out of the beginning and change it to "embed". Also delete the extra shit on the end. TRIM THE SHIT.

Also I've noticed you have better luck it not opening a new browser tab by unmuting the audio first. (before clicking image itself.

Help this helps.

Code:

<embed class="vine-embed" src="http://www.vine.co/v/bVFhrQOOhUu/embed/simple" width="480" height="480" frameborder="0">

<embed class="vine-embed" src="http://www.vine.co/v/bYuUBzJhFWh/embed/simple" width="480" height="480" frameborder="0">

<embed class="vine-embed" src="http://www.vine.co/v/b36tzzqZIjb/embed/simple" width="480" height="480" frameborder="0">

Haha, well yeah. When leaving Portland the next day and passing through the same toll area, I did check to see if she was there. No dice. But I think it should be noted that I'm less interested in actually finding out who this woman is (or having her find out that I'm coming across as a creepy guy who is using social media to track her down,) and more interested in looking like a creepy guy who is trying to track down a woman who appears in my Vine video for 0.5 seconds.

She's my own personal Amber Lamps.

HAHAHHAHAHAaaaaaaa. Ahh shit. Respect, sir. I respect that broccoli for sure. Thank you for figuring that out. I was planning on starting a new thread with your information. However, now my problem is that I don't know how to retrieve a Vine URL without "sharing" it directly to my twitter or FB account. And I can only do that with my own Vines. hmmm.
