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."

Here is your code of conduct’s rule #1

First, let me express my happiness: I’ve just been notified that I’ve been appointed Top Writer on Quora also for 2017, side by side with NASA astronauts, worldwide famous intellectuals and academics. You don’t care, but I do and I needed to let it out.

There’s another thing that I need to let out, […]

Trump Nation in T Minus 9 Days

On Gun Violence — All Comments Are Welcome

Worst of 2016: Rampant Gun Violence in the United States

by

Tim Walker

2016 has finally ended. It will be remembered, and not fondly, for many things — a year we elected a reality TV star as our President, a year in which a lot of popular celebrities left us, a year in which […]

Hap and Leonard

For more years than I’d care to remember now, Mike South and I have been reading and enjoying Joe R. Lansdale’s “Hap & Leonard” series of books. While I was living in Porn Valley back in 2004, I began picking up the paperbacks and mailing them to Mike one at a time, in order, […]

The Good Ol’ Southern Belle

 

Felicia Fox, my wife, first started dancing at a club in Dayton, Ohio (under a different name) in 1992. I met her at the Dayton airport in October of 1994 — we worked together, she was driving a forklift and hadn’t danced in over a year at that point. After […]

A Few People I Want To Express Some Gratitude To That I Haven’t in the Past

One guy that stands out is attorney James Felton. I have been lucky to have the support of several industry attorneys but in the past Mr. Felton has elected to stay low key, he gave me permission to use him in this post.

It started when he needed some assistance with a particular case, […]

Where Did We Go Wrong?

There are no pornstars like this anymore

Ten or twelve years ago by any account we had a hugely successful business. Porn survived recessions and economic bumps, bull markets, bear markets and assaults by the federal government, so how is it that today we are a shell of our former selves?

One thing I […]

Just Trying to Get This In Before the Rush….

I’ll be brief here. I just want to say how much I’ll miss this venue, and all of the great people who have commented here over the years, those from inside and outside the industry. I’ll miss reading my buddy Mike South’s garbled phrases and tortured syntax on a regular basis (not that I […]

Happy Birthday, Mike!

Thank you for having allowed everybody to express their so many different and diverse views, in all these years. Thank you for your forthrightness, for your honesty and for your kindness. I don’t intend to experience the feeling of missing you, hence you’ll still find me in your mailbox on a regular basis, I […]

Nikki Benz, MindGeek and The FSC

I took the day off yesterday but I did get a lot of emails about the Nikki Benz thing. I’m sure you are all aware of it by now but to make a long story short she was assaulted on a Brazzers set by Director Tony T (who incidentally owns a stake in cutting […]

Conspiracies, “Truthers”, and the Post-Truth Era

Welcome to Life After Truth, my friends. There is no ‘Real’ anymore. Facts no longer matter, if they ever really did.  Opinion, innuendo, memes, and social media posts, created on a whim and a dare, are the forces that apparently are able to sway nations, voters, laws, and governments in this modern world we […]

It All Comes Down To This

I will be updating this post as the night goes on I have access to AP and UPI feeds and will be calling results as they are posted…feel free to comment live tonight if yall want.

I love election night, its like the worlds best horse race…I think Hunter S Thompson made that analogy….any […]

Let’s Be Clear About Proposition 60

Once again, thanks to Mike for giving everybody (well at least to me) the chance to express their opinion, even and especially when their opinion diverges from Mike’s. The following post is not new. It’s part of an answer that I gave on Quora on October 14 and it contains a few consideration […]

MikeSouth.com Now Safe For Work

Hopefully this will bring more incoming links from mainstream.

Also I was notified that the donation link was broken…seems Paypal changed the rules for donations and I didn’t fit the new rules. I will be adding a link in the next day or two allowing for donations via Netbilling. Anyone wanting to use […]
