CLIP ART & IMAGES

Clip Art Holiday Clearance Bonanza 2009! In 2009, after dominating the world of production music, VideoHelper turned its talent for innovation to the horribly-non-lucrative Clip Art market. Five months later, due to zero sales, client outrage and a Federal StopWork Order, we’ve decided to pass the savings onto you! Clip Set 14: Hannukah: This 241-image set comes with everything you’ll need to help people experience the miracle of Channukah. The excitement of Hanukka. And the the horror that we -- nor anyone we know -- knows how to spell Chanuka. Includes pictures of children, dreidels and Benjamin Disraeli, as we were getting desperate.

Clip Set 23: Christmas/Proctology/Urology Set Searching for the meaning of Christmas? Polyps? 179-image set of images that work for the times you let people into your heart -- any way they can get there. Includes images of worried reindeer and anguished Santas.

Clip Set 26: Famous People Matt Tried (and Failed) To Draw More than 500 abortive attempts from International Distribution Director Matt Fonda at drawing portraits of celebrities during meetings. We think the set includes Geddy Lee and/or Estelle Getty, Wilford Brimley, That Guy From Flock of Seagulls, former US President Warren G. Harding, Our Mailman, Colonel Sanders, Michael Buble and John Travolta -- if he had breasts.

Clip Set 42: A Stalin Christmas A client called with an odd request: “We need a picture of Christmas Stalin for our newsletter.” And we did it! Here’s more than 10,875 images of Russian leader Josef Stalin opening presents, sledding, making snowmen, killing millions of elves, baking cookies and singing Christmas carols. Problem is, the client actually wanted pictures of Christmas Stollen -- a German cake. Be the first in the world to use this extraordinary clip art set!

Or choose from these well-loved but not-often-purchased Sets! Clip Set 145: An artificial Limb Christmas!

Clip Set 126: Plushie Catastrophes

Clip Set 78: Santa’s Not Breathing!

Oh, BTW: Here’s ScoreHelper 8. It’s also online now at playvh.com. Happy Holidays.

Dearcurrently-breathingVideoHelperclient:

We hereat VideoHelperwant you to be awarethat the Swine Flu epidemic hasclaimedtensof livesthisyearandwishto remindallof ourclientsto takethefollowingprecautions to remain Swine-Flu-free: . Do not touch tho onclosed lgtter and/or disc as Chuck, who's responsiblefor th6 mailing you're holding, says he's not fe€ling well and could be long dead by the tima you read this. . According to roconl studies by the WHO, this straln ls far more dangerous than the Hl N2. But since two members are dead from alcohoFrelateddeaths and Pete Townshend is nearlydeaf, we're not taking any health advice from them. . This swine flu is considored a Pand€mic, which should be differentiatedfrom a Pandademic, which has already claimed the livos of Llng Ling and Zhen Zhen. . Wash your hands regularly. Washingthem irregularly(licking hands clean, rubbing them together until friction becomes painful or using another person as a human hand puppet) has proven ineffective. . Contaminatod pork can host severalstrains of the influenza. Even more if it uses Evite. . HlNl has bs6n proven to bs fatsl to the 6lderly. As has ths passage of tima. . Please do not contuse HIN'l with tho loss dangerous number-lettercombinations such R2D2, the less-than-appreciated Van Halenalbum"OU812,"or U840. . This virus has been found resistant to Amantadine,Palpatineand Jaxxon - primarilydue to the fact that these are nol drugs, but charactersfrom St€r Wars. . Do not ovorestimats the effioacy of Swine Flu vacoinations, as those who have already receivedthe shot (Former US PresidentGerald Ford, Chuck and hundr6ds of thousands of people in 1918) are probably pretty damn dead. . The swine flu has three variations: A, B and C - which further cements the human-pig genetic connection, as apparently pigs use the same alphabet. . A worldwido outbreak ot Swine flu would be vastly different than the 1997 movia Outbreak and 100% different than the 198'1film Outlandand 1991's Polnf Break-even if combin€d. . In 1976 swine flu vaccinations in th6 US w€r€ halted after threa recipients died. lt was later disproven that ths vaccinationsincreasedone's chances of being in a plane crash. . Wearing a tacs mask will not prsvent transmissionof the disease, but will prevent people trom eating, which may be fatal.

January 23, 2009 Dear VideoHelper client: The current economic crisis has created some difficult times for us all and we here at VideoHelper understand that people must take drastic measures to survive. But we must publicly register our displeasure and disgust at the recent news of one woman who has offered her virginity for sale on eBay for 3.7 million dollars. We find this morally reprehensible – because we wish to make this clear: we thought of it first. Announcing the VideoHelper “Take Our Accountant’s Virginity” auction! We have decided to auction the delicate flower of our accountant’s virginity to the highest bidder! Just for a mere minimum bid of $3.8 million you and our accountant Bob can consummate the ultimate act of tender affection and trust! Bob likes to be held. Actually, being held is a must, because Bob has no idea we’re auctioning him off – and he’s kind of skittish. Just name the time and place and Bob will be there -- although he’ll be thinking here’s there to get a job-mandated medical physical exam. The rest of the magic is up to you! There’s a lot to love here – so get bidding! Bob’s bound to go quickly*

* Bob will not, in fact, be bound literally. It’s a figure of speech.

RULES: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

7. 8.

All bids must be in money, no ad time bartering. Winner must be human and over 18 years of age. Repeat: 18 human years. Minimum bid is $3.8 million dollars. All entrants must not have been found guilty of any major crimes within the past six months. Misdemeanors – no problem! Nobody tell Bob what we’re doing. The winning bid will be awarded to only one participant. An entire department cannot pool its funds and enter because it would not be romantic to have Bob be deflowered by 17 of you. Either concurrently or simultaneously. Please Email all bids to NotAccountingRelated@videohelper.com and not directly to Bob. Any video recordings of the event must be scored with VideoHelper music. Preferably Disc 18’s “Miles of Ann B Davis,” as that cut will never ever be used by anyone, otherwise.

9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16.

You must return Bob in working order and fully dressed. The highest bid will win an all-expenses-paid evening with Bob for one special night. The 20 next-highest bids will be divided into not-as-special nights after that. We repeat: do not tell Bob. He’s getting suspicious. The prize is not redeemable in cash, it is only redeemable in Bob. In accepting the prize, the entrant agrees that VideoHelper Inc will not be held liable for any loss, damages or injury to Bob. This contest is subject to all federal, local and jurisdictional laws – except the ones about exchanging money for sexual services. Winners are solely responsible for all taxes, fees or awkward post-coital moments. Management and employees of VideoHelper are not eligible for this prize, as that could possibly result in Bob paying to deflower himself.

Note: Enclosed is our latest release - ScoreHelper 7 - featuring five all-new scores. Enjoy and happy bidding!

VIDEOHELPER WEEK!

EMPLOYEE NEWSLETTER FOR THE BESTEST EMPLOYEES IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD!

RECESSION, RESHMESSION! WE’RE OKEY-DOKEY! While the rest of the business world suffers a staggering recession and cutbacks, VideoHelper does what it can to make the world a better place! by Kitty Greenblatt NEW YORK -- Get ready to make a change,

VideoHelpers! As of 6 AM Monday, our company will implement changes that will not only prevent us from going into the red, but will also make us green! Green as in ecologically aware! Although this week’s been busy with the corporate tax audit, the company’s stock being de-listed from the Nigerian Stock Exchange and the regrettable loss of many of your chairs due to misunderstandings with the furniture rental company, we’re ready to make our successful company successful-er! • With conservation in mind, we’re implementing “Paper-Free Thursdays” where we will not use a scrap of paper, including paper towels, memo pads, fax paper and yes -- even toilet paper. There’s a perfectly good Starbuck’s across the street with excellent facilities for those of you neat freaks requiring a wipe or two. • And we’re not just recycling here at VH, we’re re-RE-cycling! The company next door shreds their documents, right? Well, those tiny strips of paper make useful note paper! The next time you’re reading a message written on one of these notes, just pretend you’re reading an EKG, the result of an undersea earthquake or one of those old stock tickers from the 20’s! • We’ve decided to foster a “Heart Healthy” company by turning off the elevator. Those 14 flights will be good for you! Those of you in wheelchairs will be able to conduct business in Starbuck’s across the street. Enjoy those lattes, lazybones! • Tired of boring lunch hours? Now, we’re dedicating those hours to team-building exercises! This month, we’ll be stuffing envelopes for another company, learning valuable teamwork. Go team! • “Bring Your Child to Work Day” is now daily. Our in-house daycare center can teach your child important spacial cognizance skills by doing exercises, like stuff-

ing envelopes. What a great way to safely teach your child about what horrors have befallen children in Malaysia -- or what it was like to endure slavery! • Although the giant firepit in the main area has dramatically increased the efficiency of heating our offices, it has also increased the amount of carbon monoxide. Remember: if the bird’s dead, it’s time to open a window! A brain-dead staff doesn’t help the company! Ha ha! • Due to large power requirements and security issues, we are replacing your old computers with adding machines. No more hard drive crashes! Plus, the hand crank will provide an excellent upperbody workout! Forget the gym! Do some “number crunches” instead!

“There’s never been a better time to start conserving, except maybe the Great Depression. And I guess last fiscal year, when we started running out of money. That would’ve been a good time to start.” - VideoHelper Accountant, Mastering Engineer and Barrista David Kaminsky

moccachino beverages as well as accounting, electrical repairs and CD mastering. That’s a venti responsibility, David! Ha ha! Although the coffee will be served only in mugs that you supply, the price will be slightly higher than the Starbuck’s downstairs and only one kind of coffee will be available, you can expect great service to a “tea!” (Note: Tea will not be available). • We’ve finally gotten rid of that cheap, unsightly coffee maker! No more arguing who makes coffee when! • Research has shown that the company’s bottom line may be increased by changing our web domain name. From Monday on, our web address will now be “HiddenBathroomCams.com.” Not only will this bring in more revenue for further Green improvements, but will vastly improve the lighting in the women’s room! • The biannual blood drive will be replaced by the quarterly Egg Donation, Bone Marrow and Kidney Drive! This way, we’ll be able to not only help those far less fortunate than us, but also those much more fortunate and generous! People in South America need kidneys, too, people! • Our annual charity 15k run for Cystic Fibrosis will now be shorter by about 15k. Please send your collected donations directly to accounting. We promise nobody will know. Let’s pretend the event happened and we all ran record times. Congratulations, athletes! • A healthy white child is not only a drain on the environment, but is also worth » continued, pg. 3

• We will no longer be getting a Christmas bonus, as we are truly sensitive to the non-Christian religions that may be represented within our ranks. In case we hire someone in one of those weird religions that doesn’t celebrate this holiday, we’ll be avoiding some uncomfortable moments! Whew! • Management has decided it’s too egotistical to display the 14 Emmys we’ve won in the past few years and has decided to remove them from the lobby display and share them with the less fortunate/less talented on eBay. • There will be a new Starbuck’s opening in David Kaminksy’s office! David will now be responsible for administration of all

HAVE A SUPER DUPER DAY!

VideoHelper’s environmental footprint The annual cost of business for VideoHelper Inc

by Kitty Greenblatt

The cost of the 2007 VideoHelper family picnic, reflecting the cost of plates, cups, utensils and actual trees destroyed in the resultant fire. No more picnics in Santa Anna for us.

We finally straighten out that old “what’s the difference between ‘inflammable’ and ‘flammable’” debate.

When Larry Hanson left his office windows open over the weekend, letting valuable heating out, and a group of homeless, psychotic arsonists in.

Let’s just say it was one really, really indecisive weekend trying to find just the right Christmas tree.

IT’S A BOY AND A GIRL !

Newest VH disc “TESTOSTROGEN” released today! New “cursed” disc overcomes minor errors, plagues of locusts at CD plant and mysterious death of entire composing staff! We’ve done it again, VideoHelpers! Although the world needs more generic Pop music like it needs another monobrowed Baldwin brother, VideoHelper has answered the your requests for more Rock/ Pop by releasing Disc 34, a collection of 60 new, genre-defying cuts that cover a wide variety of moods, styles and flavors! Contrasting the muscular, straightforward attitude and the softer, more gentle side of music, VH has divided this three sections, “POP/ROCK/LIGHT, which includes the Jay-Z-meets-Rocky-esque “Unanimous Decision,” to the Franz Ferdinand-meetsBlock Party strains of “Angularity,” to the AGRESSIVE/ATTITUDE/SPORTS” Section, featuring the dirtbag stripper-ready feel of “All Liquored Up” and the odd, teddy bearwith-a-chainsaw sound of “Puppet Punk,” all the way to the final FUN/FUNNY/”FUNNY” section which includes the videogameesque sound of “Telefragtastic,” to the couldn’t-find-a-decent-title sound of ““Zany Pants” to the “holy shit, we’ve run out of ideas” sound of “Frustrated Pentapus.” “We wanted a disc that showed both our masculine side AND our effeminate, kind of sensitive, womanly side that spends hours crying and balled up in a corner, afraid the masculine side will come home and make unrealistic sexual demands on the femi» continued, pg. 3

JosephSaba,President

Upon refurning from my two-week vacation I was alarmedto find that substantive,unauthorizedchanges were made in the company. Although I applaud creative and forward-minded thinking, thesemodifications do not better our company or our position in the marketplace,and I demandthe cessationof the following practicesimmediately: BRING YOUR DAUGHTER TO WORK DAY: This once-a-yearcelebrationof parenthoodwas fine. However, this is not a day-to-day practice,and I wish to remind you in the strongestof terms that you may only bring YOUR daughterto work. I will seeif our legal counsel can get Larry releasedon bail. 66FUN"FRIDAYS: Although we have previouslyallowed morale-building eventssuch as "PajamaDay" and "Hawaiian Shirt Day," I feel that the past two weeks events,"Dress Like Your Boss Day" and "Work From (Your VacationingBoss's)Home Day" more than disruptive. BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS: These are limited to those in the office who are celebratingtheir birthdays- and not just the birthdays that may happento occur on that day. Last week's celebrationsof the birthdaysof Nicola Tesla,Nelson Rockefeller,the guy who plays "Screech,"22nd US PresidentGrover Clevelandand the PederoneQuintupletswas entirely againstpolicy. PHONE BEHAVIOUR: You will answerthe phonewith our companyname and a friendly greeting.You will no longerbe allowed to pretendyou don't speakEnglish or run office-wide gambling basedon caller's staminain the "indefinite hold Olympics." S'MORES: Although I applaudthe camaraderieand community that roasting marshmallows in a fireplace may bring, I would like to suggestthat it shouldnot only wait until after businesshours,but also until the office has a fireplace installed. GRAPHIC REDESIGN OF DISCS AND NEW LOGO: Of all the indiscretionsthat occurredduring the pasttwo weeks,I am pleasedwith the individual who introduceda new VideoHelperlogo and CD design. The old VH logo was more than an eyesore- and after ten years it neededto be retired. I find it more than convenientthat this redesigncoincideswith the releaseof VH DISC 3l: OVERKILL -a 6l-cut collectionof over-the-topcuts that might be too over-the-topfor massconsumption. The disc's divided into two sections:INTENSE/DARK/DRAMATIC with cinematic cuts like the growing tension of "Tightening The Screws," the Gothic darknessof "RevenantUnleashed"or the blurred line betweenhorror and comedy in "Children Are Delicious." The POSITIVE/GRAND/HOPEFUL sectionfeaturesproud, more inspirationalthemes,from the choral/orchestralmajesty of "The Far Side of the World" to the AltRock triumph of "Flare fJp." Pleaseaddressthe above changes,including the distribution of the above disc, restorationof order to the office and the IMMEDIATE return of ShanLee, the Chinesemail-orderbride who's living in my office.

Unfoftunately,duringthe 2005 calendaryear/ the VideoHelper,Inc. family of companies ownedfive of them: THE HOMELESSDEPOT- Our chain of storesthat boasted"No shirt, no shoes-- no problem!"failed after the first day when all shoppingcarts were stolen. BRAND-NAMEDRUG PLACEBOS:This year, we ceasedproductionof Swindlecillin, Fraudumylcin,Imitatrin and the really unpopularJonathanRhys-Myercin.We overestimated the value of "designer"placebosand lost considerablemarket shareto lessexpensive "generic"placebos(sugar pills and Tic Tacs). PLANT PARENTHOOD- This chain of flower shopssufferedhuge losseswhen firebombedby waves of semi-literate/sightimpairedprotesters. Strangelysimilarto last year's torchingof o u r c h a i no f A b s o r D t i oC n linics. SHAKESBEER'S:Basedon the successof the bookstore/coffee shop chains,this unsuccessful chainof bookstoreswith bars closedafter a gin-soakedMargaretAtwoodfatally stabbeda customer. 'TARDS DANCESHOPS: Specializingin salesof leotards,unitardsand other form-fitting clothingfor movement,its slogan:"Home for the SeverelyUnitarded"failed to catch on -- or even pass networkcensorsfor TV advertising.

Rebuilt a n d f i r e b o m b e da g a i nl a s ty e a r VIDEOHELPERPRODUCTIONMUSIC LIBRARY: Our flagshipcompanyreportedthe mathematicallyimpossiblelossesof over 6530/0during 2005 as comparedto the previous year, but miraculouslyremainedin business.This higherthan 100o/oloss could be due to outragedclientstorchingthe homesof variouscompanyofficersduring the 2005 fiscalyear. In an effort to appeaseangry shareholders,clientsand torch-wieldingvillagers,VideoHelperis releasingDisc 30 y2: MODULES[2]: Adventures in Narrative Sound Design, a follow-up to our breakthrough,now-legendaryDisc 25 y2: MODULES. Eachof the 135 cues is comprisedcompletelyof sounddesignelementsthat are designedto set an emotionand build on it - while suggestingvisualsand telling a story. Editablemodularhits/transitions throughoutcan be used interchangeably to createnew stroke-inducingframeworks. Dividedinto four sectionsthe disc includesthe INTENSE section,rangingfrom the exploding orchestral sounds of Seyere Dischord, to the time-twisting Shifting Seconds,to the catastrophic,crumblingsoundsof Faf Man, ThinIce. The POSITM sectionrangesfrom the tinkly, heaven-likesoundsof Wishpoolto the ginormousRockstrositythat is Enfer Sfage Leff. The RISES sectionfeaturestracks that grow in size and density,like the machine-like, creaking sounds of Infinity Curye to the escalating percussiveaction-fest Harder, Faster.

The crisisbeganon August l4'h.2004.whenAlex Koch of VideoHelperreceivedan urgent emailfrom a Nigerian"Doctor"claimingto needhelpmovinghis family'sbankaccounts to the US due to a widespreadgoatshortagewhich was causingmassstarvationnationally and extensivesexualfrustrationin the hinterlands.This correspondence promisedKoch a sharein "AMOUNTS NEAR 430 BILLIONS DOLLARS AND A GOAT" if he would simply advanceMobekaplanefareto the U.S. wherethe allegedfundswere deposited. Koch knew he had rnadea mistakewhen Mobekaand 50 gun-totingassociates showedup at VideoHelper's New York headquarters andbeganwhippinghim with his own stapler. Declaringhirnself"SupremelyOppressive Despotand Bassist-For-Life", Mobekaalso changedthe nameof the companyfrom VideoHelper,lnc. to "Workers I May Eliminateat Will". He then beganhis first pressconferenceby repeatedlybeatingcomposerswith slide whistlesand laterthreatened reporterswith "deathby stabbingyou with goats". Mobekahasbig plansfor his new company:"First,I will unleasha waveof violence, intimidationandthuggerythe likesof whichthiscountryhasneverseen.Next, I will unleash an evenbiggerwave of violence,sparingnot evengoats,and suspendall futureelections.After a third andfinal waveof violence,I canfinally getaroundto remodeling my kitchenwith those wonderfulgranitecountertops.Like I saw in Good Housekeeping." just beforethe coup,Disc 28, THE BEATDOWN, is a collectionof 60 beat-based Released tracksall over the stylisticmap and is divided into threesections.The first section, ATTITUDE / AGGRESSIVE,travelsfrom the breakbeatfreakoutBlacktop B-Ballto the angryglitchtronicaof Jugular Assault to the cold dancefloor sexinessof Raviator.
