Work Attire: XBiz Winter Wonderland

- by in Happenings, Headline, Images, Sex, Trade/Business

I bet lots of people need to ask themselves this question: “So red satin or leopard PJs for work party?” While the XBiz convention this month was mostly business, they did have some parties. One of them was the Winter Wonderland party at the top of the storied Andaz hotel. The dress code was sleepwear. […]

Adult Industry Insights from XBiz Show 2016

- by in Happenings, Headline, Sex, Trade/Business

People periodically send me letters asking how they can be me. I don’t know that being me is always totally awesome, although I wouldn’t trade with anyone else. But I do know that the #1 piece of advice I would give anyone seeking to innovate is to go to trade shows in lots of different […]

16th Cybersocket Awards 2016

- by in Happenings, Headline, Images, Sex, Trade/Business

Forrest Black and I had the pleasure of attending the Cybersocket Awards again this year. This event has such a great energy and is always so much fun. Rather than having people sitting stiffly at tables, Cybersocket has everyone in a nightclub atmosphere where it is easy to mingle and get drinks. The ceiling of […]

Magazine Central: BLT, Blue Blood, Boing Boing & High Times in SPIN

- by in Books, Headline, Trade/Business, Trappings

As I’ve been working on pulling everything for the BLT Punk Humor Book 25 Year Black Leather Times Zine Omnibus, I’ve been finding all sorts of odd surprisingly non-ephemeral ephemera from the past. Below you will see an advert which ran in SPIN magazine approximately a zillion years ago. The ad is for both BLT […]

Best Alcohol Quotes Repeal Day 2012

- by in Happenings, Headline, Images, Trade/Business

To celebrate Repeal Day 2012, we have a SFW sample photo gallery of beautiful deathrocker Razor Candi tippling Absolut vodka. I assume that the booze industry made up Repeal Day some time in the past few years. I first saw it in a Dewar’s advertisement, but I admit that I think celebrating the end of […]

George Lucas Sells to Disney – This explains EVERYTHING about Star Wars

- by in Headline, Popcorn, Trade/Business

When the Jar Jar Binks movie came out, like a lot of Star Wars fans, I was baffled. Darth Vader re-imagined as an unpleasantly cute kid? Everything looking so sterile? Special effects which were less than convincing? I confess that seeing Star Wars as a small child was a watershed moment in my life. I’m […]

Samsung Corporate Performance Art

- by in Art, Headline, Trade/Business

In an act of corporate performance art this week, Samsung started paying Apple their billion dollars with thirty trucks full of coins. Zurmat reports that the trucks carried nickels, but the photo illustration suggests pennies.

About Piratz Tavern or Jon Taffer of Bar Rescue on Spike is a Bigot

- by in Headline, Manifesto, Personalities, Trade/Business

Years ago, when I lived in the DC burbs, Dennys was sued for discriminating against black customers. The Dennys near where I lived, the one the local punks used to get abused at, was named specifically in the suit because they had been evil about seating a couple of black Secret Service agents. Dennys lost, […]

Are Mega-Corps Discriminating Against Gothic Sites?

- by in Headline, Manifesto, Trade/Business

Today, dark fashion and beauty site Gothic.org posted Trend Micro Hates Goths. It appears that Trend Micro, through its Site Safety product, is unreasonably discriminating against gothic culture sites. Trend Micro’s Site Safety is yet another entry in the anti-malware and social control product set. Most companies use some sort of software which tracks where […]
