Just when we collectively give out more awards than there are movies being made every year another awards show throws its hat into the ring. Paul Fishbein is heading up a company called X3sixty. X3sixty is a media website for the industry. In some senses it’s a good idea but in this case it simply falls [...]
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 [...]
I find it sad, because it seems one of the best places to get porn news now is TMZ. What’s up with that?
AVN is pretty much following the pattern of everything else Manwin takes over. They take something that is a fairly well known (and even somewhat respected brand), very quietly take it over, put [...]
Now reading his post about “it’s a bird, it’s a plane it’s superbug…Not” on AVN would lead one to believe that Gonorrhea is not becoming antibiotic resistant. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Now that particular strain claimed to have been found in Hawaii is a hoax BUT Gonorrhea has been increasingly anti-biotic resistant for years [...]
Lets talk about AVN. There was a time when AVN was the 800 lb Gorilla in this biz. I can’t speak to the internal politics there very much because I really don’t know. What i do know is that Paul Fishbein was well liked in the industry and that he had juice, serious juice. Oaul was [...]
We already know that Diane Duke is a whore for anyone who will pay her relatively low price….she whored herself and the FSC to Fabian. It makes me wonder if people in the FSC like her are taking money in order to throw the AB332 fight.
Yes its part tongue in cheek but good God how are [...]
The previous post made me think of this and since all have moved on now there is no harm in telling it all.
Way back around the turn of the century when Luke Ford was carving out a niche blogging about porn, AVN had decided that they wanted to counter Luke Ford and expanded Gene Ross’s responsibilities [...]
I was talking to a friend of mine in mainstream media on Saturday and he remarked that I am THE go to guy for mainstream looking for info on the biz. I remarked that I wasn’t really sure how that happened, it just did. He said nothing against you for a one man media outlet you [...]
To make a long story short Cyprus banks are in trouble and they need bailing out by the EU. The agreement being that Cyprus will levy a 6% charge on all accounts with under 100,000 euros and a 10% charge on all accounts over 100,000 euros. The percentage taken will be converted to bank stock, which [...]
Over a week ago one of my readers made the comment that unless it comes in the form of a press release with a check attached AVN and XBiz ignore it.
Remember the 2 week old plus story about a LATATA Agency being targeted by the California Department of Industrial Relations? AVN nor XBiz had a word [...]
