Speed dating with Crystal Wet

Speed dating with Crystal Wet
I met East L.A.'s own Crystal Wet on the set of Mercenary Pictures' Black Moon Risin' 4. Director Tina Tyler, a thoughtful employer, asked if Wet wanted the popshot on her face. "Um ... - " Wet said. "I can tell by your face that you don't," Tyler interrupted. "How about your pussy instead?... More »

Hypocrisy and State’s Rights

Hypocrisy and State’s Rights
One of the most contentious issues in American politics has been the long-standing battle between the interests of the individual states and the interests of the federal government – which supersede the legal interests of the states.

DRM is not a three letter bad word

DRM is not a three letter bad word

Microsoft’s DRM solution is the more popular DRM package being used that allows people to encode their video f... More »

"I'll deal with you later, thrill-kitten."

"I'll deal with you later, thrill-kitten."
My favorite movie this week is The Rebelle Rousers. Not that it was the most technically proficient (that honor belongs, hands down, to Island Fever 4), not because it had the most publicity (Hiya Britney), and definitely not because it was racially diverse. In fact, The Rebelle Rousers should be ca... More »

Open bar at the Van Halen place

Open bar at the Van Halen place
Prior to Saturday night, the last time I stood in the parking lot of L.A. Valley Community College was to conduct a transaction of dubious (well, not dubious - let's just say No) legality during the Gary Cherone era of Van Halen. Fast forward a few years to this past weekend, when I and about 40... More »

Freedom of Expression

Freedom of Expression
In light of the recent charges being filed against adult story publisher Red Rose Stories, I’ve posted a new XBIZ World thread, asking “Can the written word be obscene?” I’d like you all to post your comments on this subject there for possible publication in an upcoming issue of the magazine...
