Just read your article about
suicide-girls.com. Makes sense, I (and a lot of other people) have been kicked off the site or had their access restricted for reasons that the people (or person, really, probably the guy who you talked to) who run it can't even tell.
I still don't know why I was kicked off the site.
Y'know, I'm an anarchist, totally opposed to capitalism and all, but shitty business practices just double suck.
Anyway, good article. I'd never heard of you before, so I'm gonna go download some mp3's.

I just wanted to give Storm a big pat on the back for that article about "the little man behind the curtain of SG."
Although I don't know both sides, it certainly rings true. For fear alone of the silly misinformed ranks of the SG army I refuse to name my sources, but I will say that I have it on the highest authority that there is quite a bit more of that hissy-fit behavior behind SG than meets the eye. Plenty of girls have been dismissed under mysterious circumstances, which only encourages the rumor mill of people trying to explain away what happened. It's sad really. Only the girls tossed to the way
side (and possibly their closest friends) know the truth behind what really happened. (Telling their side usually results in being booted off the site, and dismissed by a majority of the Girls who are unfortunately misinformed by management to save face). For the most part there is a vein of similar circumstance that runs throughout every girl's story. They woke up to find they weren't valued for their opinions or individuality as they were led to believe, and that in the end what they amounted to in "The Site's" eyes was a tattooed piece of sellable flesh and not much more than that. It is business, and apparently business is good, but a site based around 100+ girls who wear their opinions on the outside as much as on the in is likely to be a breeding ground for contempt and disappointment. With all the wonderful press lately it's nice to see someone put up a little educated contrast. Just for the record however, the site itself is great as well as the girls, the community and the idea of it all, it's just that the management need not look a gift horse in the mouth.
Always, anonymous.

It doesn't occur to Phil Stanford that maybe you don't return his
calls because he's a jerkoff? I've always wondered what the fuck does he write about Exotic for anyway in a smarmy cutesy "About Town" society column in a yuppie "newspaper" supposedly aimed at a mainstream audience? Which they never even PRETENDED to do. They'll get paid anyway, so why not just promote friends and friends' businesses, etc. Drop names, suck ass in print.
He should just write about what it's like to get paid for sucking, for being failures at what they do, for losing money hand over fist. Great gig. Same with the oh-so-critical everyone-but-us-sucks "Portland Mercury." He attacked Jim after the Officer Partridge thing and it was totally baseless and unfair, yet when Jim e-mailed a perfectly reasonable reply explaining his side, Stanford didn't even have the class to correct it or acknowledge it in the column.
I'm tellin' ya . . . .

Great article on Gonzo Video! We run a website (www.gonzo-vids.com) that specializes in Gonzo style video and have definitely seen an increase over the last 6 months! You may have heard us on the Rick Emerson Show (www.rickemerson.com) out there in Portland. Anyway, just wanted to throw some props out for a well written article. And don't get too wet.... freaking Northwest weather!!!
