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."

About That Crush Video Posting

Im very pleased with the discussion it brought forth (and continues to bring forth).  It was interesting to see how it played out, most people got it but a few morons and in some cases people who didnt read it took away from it that I shot my girlfriends cat….

In following up on the story on of the things I came across was that at least as far as I could tell these were NOT crush videos, that was the mainstream media mis-categorizing them into a decidedly unpopular term.

While I do believe in property rights and less government it took me some time and reading some posters comments to figure out what it is that bothers me about this (and it always did bother me)

As I have said  I have killed many animals for food, I have a deep respect for nature and for what it provides for us and even if these people are killing animals in EXACTLY the same way that a farmer would albeit dressed very differently, I have a problem.

That problem is that it seems very wrong to me to film this for any sort of gratification, sexual or otherwise.  If you find it exciting or in any way pleasurable to see an animal (or a human) die before your very eyes then you really need psychiatric help.

Kayden said she wanted to write a piece on it and I look forward to her posting it.  Meantime thanks to everyone who participated and is still participating in this…Its how things get sorted out and its a fascinating read.
