AVN The Good and the Bad

I got the new issue of AVN and as usual there are good pieces in there by Corey Silverstein and Nate Glass. These guys are both very consistent and accurate and are the only reason to read AVN really.

The reviews are fluff and the ad pages are more internet than traditional video these days.

The one thing that really got me though was a bit about piracy by Clyde DeWitt. I always liked Clyde but like AVN he has fallen so far out of touch as to almost be embarrassing. He did an article on piracy and bit torrents sites….he completely discounted tube sites (probably because Manwin is an advertiser) and he didn’t even appear to know what a file locker is.

Bit torrents? Does anyone even bother to steal porn via bit torrent sites anymore? Come on Clyde I expect better from you. Of course I expect better from AVN too but that isn’t likely to happen either….
