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."

Teagan Presley Pregnant?:

This rumor is FLYING all over the place. if it is true lets hope she takes the babies health into consideration and curtails her partying. The source of the rumor is a blog entry on her myspace blog, reportedly from her boyfriend. The entry was quickly deleted and adella cant be reached for comment…..Damage control mode no doubt.

Wonder if Kid Rock is the Daddy?

KEYSER SÖZE WRITES;

Gene Ross prints a quote by Mary Carey, “Next week me and Tawny Roberts are doing a dancing duo act. It’s our first time in Arizona and we’re calling ourselves the Heartbreakers.”

Mary & Tawny side by side resemble Penn & Teller with tits.

The Deejays introduction:
Enzio’s never ending buffet and shake-o-rama is proud to introduce your feature act for the evening. Fresh from the clam bar, Mary Scale breaker Carey and Tawny Heartbreaker Roberts, the biggest, by the pound, feature duo act in the country.
OK that’s so wrong…besides I Love Mary Carey she is too damn funny and if you look up exuberant in the dictionary I’m pretty sure they have her picture there.

Fayner Takes Me To Task:

Seems I must have picked on one of his buddies. Well Scott I just calls em as I sees em and if you ask me bankrupting one company and immediately opening another one with the same products is pretty sleazy, I’m guessing theres a few creditors out there who agree. I know I have been a victim of that bullshit.

The next scam is on the consumer, releasing a movie that you released a month ago as a new release with only a re-designing box…hey that’s pretty scummy too.

Printing his home address on my site? I have no problem with it. You see my home address has been on this site for 3 years, along with my real name. I have even posted my cell phone number here. Guess what? Not one person has ever abused any of it. Wonder if maybe that’s because I’m not FUCKING THEM OVER? Oh and did I mention that home address was/is available with a minimum of info on the net?

OK Fayner, it’s you and Jim Crawford who need to be bitch slapped.

Put down the crack pipe.

Anyone who is owed money by Jim Crawford/Original Sin and want’s Crawford’s home address email me…I will be happy to give it to ya.

BT Writes:

Mike: Just a couple of weeks ago, you were lamenting that nothing was going on in pronoland and you felt like you’d said all you had to say.

And yet, since then, you’ve been putting out one scoop after another, plus a number of fine insightful posts.

Maybe every now and then it’s good to get down in the dumps to get recharged.

I was thinking about this now that Carly’s announced she’s hanging up her keyboard. She was another bright and measured voice writing about this industry. She’ll be missed, and yet you could see it coming over the last three or four months.

So, here’s to hoping you continue to find the energy to keep writing.

Meanwhile …… Shane making a directing comeback? Who cares? Don’t get me wrong. I’ve been a huge Shane fan for years. Despite getting a little older, I’d love to see Shane performing again. I’ve gotten older too, and she’s still a good 15 years younger than me. But a directing comeback? What made Shane’s World so interesting, especially in the beginning when Shane and Seymour broke up, was Shane performing. I could care less whether it says directed by Shane then or now.

I don’t blame female performers for wanting to direct, but let’s get real. Porn is about girls doing the nasty in front of the camera, not behind it.

And I agree with your kudos to Jenna for calling it quits while she’s on top. Which leads back to the e-mail I sent you the other day. Only explanation for what she’s going to do to earn Vivid’s money is to expand her talent business, because as much as I’ve enjoyed Jenna over the years (and I gotta say, as much grief as she gets from raincoaters, her website was one of the hottest porn girl websites going), she was looking ever more like a cartoon character. Breasts got bigger; body getting thicker; tatoos expanding.

I think what will be interesting from a cultural standpoint is how long Jenna continues to rate personal endorsements and a billboard once she stops performing. Can a porn girl who no longer does porn remain a celebrity? And for how long?

It will be a good measure of the cross-over of porn to mainstream culture.

Just some random 8 AM thoughts before doing the real work of the day.

Shannin Writes:

You don’t have to worry about whether or not you get a story before AVN does because I won’t read that site ever since they started with the brainstorm of putting your browser to sleep for ten seconds to force you to stay on the site that long. That is just weak. I will read it on your site first no matter what.

As a friend of mine said about that…at least it is consistant, the site puts the reader to sleep, it should put the browser to sleep too.

And Another One Bites The Dust:

Carly Milnes Blog Pornblography is apprently no more. She posted that she is calling it quits.

Three more porn blogs have sprung up to take her place.
