CNBC Says "Mike South - South is the Nikki Finke of the porn industry. His blog, which is never short on opinion, is a must-read among industry insiders. His style is unique, but he is also a leading agent of change within the industry. There are few fence-sitters when it comes to opinions about South, but no one ignores him."

“I’ve been extremely unhappy the last couple months,” Jones said. “I’m not happy with me. I need to look at the big picture here and everyone knows that porn doesn’t last forever and family [...]

What Else Does Manwin Own?

Some people noted that Manwin appears that it only owned Digital Playgrounds web properties back in 2010 and that is likely true, and I knew that but the point was that both Ali (Joone) and Fabian Thyllmann flatly denied any such association even back in Dec of 2011.

Bottom line, they lied.

What strikes [...]

Digital Playground Black Thursday The Rest Of The Story

Bear in mind that Samantha Lewis was an owner of Digital Playground and when Manwin purchased the company there was an announcement that nothing would change over there, meaning Samantha would keep her current duties, though she was no longer an owner.

When Black Thursday came Samantha got released and so did Peggy and [...]

Black Thursday At Digital Playground

I posted previously about DP releasing Kay Brandt,  Others were involved and at this time I have verified who they were via  inside sources.

Peggy as previously noted was released but not because of the website breach, Peggy was over DVD sales.  Also released was her sister Sue, Samantha Lewis (Yes you read that [...]

DP To Cut Their Contract Roster

Word is that the real number on the Manwin deal for DP is 6M and that Manwin is now looking to streamline Digital Playground.  Included in that streamlining will be cutting the DP contract roster to just 3 girls.  Speculation has Stoya, Kayden Kross and Selena being released with them keeping Jesse Jane, Riley [...]

Raven Alexis Cancer? Bulemia? Both?

This story has been brewing for a very long time and determining the fact from the fiction is proving nearly impossible.

I have talked to many people about this including Raven Alexis herself.  My first instinct was that it was a story, my next one was that it probably is a story but maybe [...]

A Press Release Two Hours Before The Event…WTF

Ok I know this is porn but what the fuck was Digital Playground thinking?  They sent me a press release about Kaydens appearance on Stossel at 8PM, two hours before the event happened, even though they had known about it for days.

WTF  If your only goal is to get it mentioned in AVN [...]

ICM Registry sends Mike South and Digital Playground A Big Fuck You As Well


Seems they have taken unclaimed domains using mikesouth, bibijones, jessejane, kaydenkross and others and redirected them to sell .xxx domains.

This is a CLEAR case of will full trademark violation.  In my case it probably isn’t worth the cost to pursue it but Digital Playground may feel differently.

Maybe a Class Action is [...]

Brazzers What it Means

A lot of you are asking me for a political type analysis of the Brazzers move on Digital Playground.

I’d rather comment on the morons like Newt and Mitt in Iowa but I won’t except to say God Bless Ron Paul….I hope he wins, he is the only one who has common sense and [...]

More on Brazzers/DP Deal

Truth is this rumor was around forever and I wasn’t even the first to report it. Webmaster board Oprano had it on 9/16/2011 apparently just days after the deal was official. At the time everyone was tight lipped and even I couldn’t get anything to confirm it. Had I listened more carefully to my [...]

Brazzers Buys Digital Playground

I got a tip back in September that this deal was done but after trying to source it I couldn’t verify it so I dismissed it as rumor mill stuff.

I got another tip today that it is all the buzz again in porn circles and after calling around all day this time I [...]
