My sister and some of my friends were harassed at San Diego Comic Con by some YouTube douchebag named Kevin Brueck. And I want to help them get justice by spreading the word on this guy and warning cosplayers (especially female cosplayers) to stay away from him.

My friend wrote a first-had account of this incident on his tumblr page. Here's a link (and I'll transcribe it below):

=================

Kevin Brueck: Comic Con villain

On July 25th, my friends and I were walking down the street towards some place to have lunch during the San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) 2014. A man stops us, asking my cosplayer friend to do a quick interview for his documentary on cosplaying. Which is a common project for filmmakers who attend the con. She signed a release form for the documentary and was ready for the interview.

But once the camera started recording, the host opens up shouting “I’M HERE WITH ONE OF THE COMIC CON SKANKS!” and then continues on with a line of sexually harassing questions. My friend flipped him off and stormed away. The host followed her, continuing on with his questions.

At this point, her friends (including me) surround the guy with a onslaught of obscenities. He explains that it’s just a “prank” and then asks for her to sign a “real” release form. Not only does she refuse, but demands to get the form she signed back. He tells her “no” and then when asked why not, he answers with, “because I said so”.

So I asked him for his name and the name of the youtube channel he works on. He tells me “Kenny Burns” and that he works for youtube.com/pranks.

But that was a lie.

I found out that the name of this disgusting human being is Kevin Brueck and that he has filmed quite a few SDCC related prank videos where he terrorizes cosplayers for youtube.com/break.

This is such a disgusting trend. These cosplayers work long hours and spend an obscene amount of money to make their costume and show it off at SDCC. All of that effort put towards this one weekend out of the year will forever be tarnished by the memory of being humiliated and harassed by this horrible individual.

In one of his videos, he disguises himself as representative of the convention and scares cosplayers with a phony copyright infringement fine.

He needs to be stopped. I want his videos taken off of youtube and I want him to banned from the site as well as SDCC. Please share this story to whatever sites you think would be willing to help us shut down the continuing career of Kevin Brueck, a Comic Con villain!

I just made a special journal, If you're interested, come and read it. You might find it interesting.

Not too crazy about the design, but on the plus side, it looks like they're going for a WAY-type feel, with no official romantic entanglements and Scooby's dialogue being limited.

Thanks for the link! I did a journal entry about my thoughts on the designs/article. I'd love to get your two cents on it!

I looked up the producer (the one who was quoted in that article) and he seems to have a good track record on animated comedies. Here's hoping he does great things with this show. The fact that he seems to respect the original show enough to bring back elements that have been lost in recent years (like the team remaining strictly platonic and Scooby not speaking much) is a good sign.

The part about Scooby having limited dialogue made me happy. Not only does Scooby feel more like an actual DOG when his ability to talk is curbed; but not allowing him to prattle on forces the writers to be more creative with how they use Scooby and have him express himself.
Also, IMO, not even Don Messick would sound all that great doing long monolouges in the Scooby voice. So it's no surprise that even a pro like Frank Welker sounds awful when he has to do it (and MI was the worst offender because of it's terrible, pretentious dialogue). I think Welker will do MUCH better in this show since Scooby will have less "human" speech and more animal sounds/behaviors (ie the things Welker excels at)

Now we can gush at each other's art (and maybe you can help me brush up on my high school French LOL)

Sure! Make sure to send me a link when you do. I'd love to see it! :)
Also, putting in a link/credit to my DA when you post your "Batman in the Shower" pic would be much appreciated.
