Anna Amemiya, Japanese Idol, Has Human Body, Anime Head – Posted: 08/31/2012 3:30 pm Updated: 08/31/2012 3:30 pm

A Japanese model isn’t masking her intentions to be famous, but she is wearing a mask.

Her name is Anna Amemiya and she has earned a certain amount of recognition by wearing a giant mask based on the facial features normally associated with anime comics and cartoons.

She first popped onto the Japanese pop scene as a model in 2010 and released a DVD in December of that year. So far, her biggest contribution to local culture was the lifesize pillow featuring her body, according to OddityCentral.

Amemiya, 22, reportedly only appears in public with the giant head, which makes it easy for fans to spot her in her latest endeavor: A play in Tokyo called “Venus Fantasista,” which is based on a Japanese mobile game about a ragtag group of beautiful girls who form a soccer team, RocketNews24.com reported.

David Merrill, a comic artist and journalist who writes about comics and anime, said Amemiya’s decision to perform with a giant cartoon mask on her noggin takes “cosplay” — a term for when adults dress up as characters from anime, manga, fantasy or sci-fi — to “an ultra creepy level.”

“This is a name for what she’s doing is ‘kigurumi,’ where adults, mostly men, dress up as creepy anime mascots, first by wearing body suits to compress their figures before slipping on the costumes,” Merrill told the Huffington Post. “This is the first time I’ve seen an adult wear the mask like this though. It’s very fetishy — like a gimp mask.”

Merrill thinks Amemiya’s rise to fame showcases the difference between Japanese and North American culture.

“If she was here, people would be trying to get photos of her without the mask,” he said. “In Japan, they’re not interested in what looks like in real life.”

Some people don’t look so good. This is the best way to compensate barring expensive facial plastic surgery. Not creepy, just poor or p(l)ain-shy, no different from plastic surgery faces in any case, except the mask can come off.

Online sale of lifelike masks evokes concern in China (9) (People’s Daily Online)  16:10, August 20, 2012

A panda, George Bush (or is that Prince Charles?) and typical Anime Girl Idol  Anna Amemiya. Lifelike examples not shown here . . .

“Is this the legendary disguising technique in wuxia fiction?” The sale of extremely realistic “human skin” masks on Taobao.com has provoked heated discussions among Chinese netizens, some of whom fear the masks may be used by criminals. “The ‘human skin’ masks have been on the market for a year, and are mostly used for entertainment. It is well within legal limits, so Taobao has no right to interfere,” a Taobao spokesperson said.

Although the shopkeepers have specified on the notes for buyers that these masks sold in their shops are only used for entertainment, parties, performances, film and television special effects and collections, not for any criminal activities. Otherwise, they must take the consequence. However, netizens are still worried about selling the masks on the Internet and some even asked how the police should do if the murderer wearing a mask commits a crime. Doesn’t the online purchase of these masks provide an opportunity to the lawbreakers?

The reporter logged on to taobao.com and searched “human skin masks,” and saw eight options, including “high-imitation human skin masks,” “disguise using human skin masks ” and “mask of a real person.” Among them, three shops sell high-simulated human skin masks, priced at 500 yuan to 9,000 yuan, and the popular masks in one shop are not custom-made, but the appearance of an Asian middle-aged man. Three such masks have been sold within half a month.

One shop owner who claimed to be the originator of “human skin masks” told the reporter that these masks are made of imported medical silicone and have good elasticity. They are fit for various types of faces but it is very complex to produce them. In addition to fixed styles, customers also can spend 20,000 yuan to custom-make a mask by providing a photo of a person. When asked whether it needs to be agreed by the person, the shop owner said that it does not need any procedures. Customers only need to pay 50 percent down payment and email the photo to the manufacturer, they can get it one month later.

The reporter made a call to the public relations department of Taobao and was told that Taobao is very strict to the products sold on its website and it absolutely prohibits the sales of illegal goods. At present, the “human skin masks” are mainly used for entertainment and film and television production and they belong to legitimate sales, so Taobao cannot interfere to them. The photo can be processed so as to look more authentic.

The reporter also called Beijing’s business administration department of Beijing and quality supervision hotline and was told that the sale of “human skin masks” is legitimate. These masks manufacturers are legitimate if they have a business licensing and these masks do not have a quality problem.

The Beijing police said, “It will make the case confused if criminals use a mask to commit crime. However, such cases have not yet occurred in Beijing, so we do not know what influence such cases will bring.”

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

Perhaps make ownership of masks that look like existing people illegal, needing an identity card AND appearing in person to order or commission a mask. Mask license plates? Improved versions of oneself could be legal PROVIDED some obviously artificial distinguising mark is used (perhaps a lightly applied ‘racoon’ Yosemite Sam style over the artificial mask), and similar looking people owning similar looking masks could be legal. Many people may not look good enough or want to appear in public and be immediately recognizable for any number of reasons (i.e. working at menial jobs etc.) so masks (in this example masks that obscure identity) might still be in demand or in use, though.

Why Ugly People Shouldn’t Bother With Fashion – Posted: 09/03/12 09:00 AM ET – HuffPost Social Reading

Bouncers double up as Model Judges and Aesthetics Police . . .

It’s a Saturday afternoon and, having told me that my wardrobe is a little “tired”, my girlfriend decides to take me shopping in Shoreditch. We go to a store called A.P.C. It’s French, which is apparently justification for charging £75 for a t-shirt.

Once inside I immediately feel uncomfortable. The people in here are different. They have unblemished, olive skin. Their clothes fit. They do not have the permanently awkward, anaemic look of someone who has just finished masturbating. This place is not for me.

By the time I’ve seen the warning signs, it’s too late, I’m in the tractor beam of a hipster shop assistant from Brooklyn who’s wearing enough colours to induce an acid trip. She’s insisting that buying some jeans would be, like, totally the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

To make matters worse, my girlfriend and the shop assistant appear to have fused into Siamese twins and are simultaneously barking at me about colours, cuts and sizes. I’m scared and disorientated. It’s like a sartorial Vietnam.

Moments later, in a flurry of arms and emphatic adverbs, I’m standing in my boxers, alone in a 4ft by 4ft cell with a pair of absurdly tight jeans and a distinct absence of dignity. Somehow, I’m supposed to get these jeans on. Beginning to panic, I look around for something, anything, that’s going to help. Do they have Vaseline dispensers for this kind of thing?

So I try again. Eventually, after much pulling, struggling and twisting, I get them on. After breathing in to the point of asphyxiation, I even manage to get the jeans buttoned. Moving, however, is a more complex challenge. My entire lower body appears to have been shrink wrapped.

Somehow I manage to get out of the door without ripping anything, although each step almost certainly diminishes my chances of procreating. The reaction outside is jubilant. My girlfriend and Brooklyn girl are shouting and whooping with joy as if I’ve just surgically prevented Piers Morgan from ever speaking again. The jeans, apparently, look good. In my naivety I’m swept up by this notion as well. I’m temporarily convinced that buying these things might actually be a good idea, that maybe I’m not a fashion vacuum after all.

I’ve set myself up for a fall, of course.

On returning to the changing room I bend over to pick up a hanger from the floor. That’s when it happens. The sound is horrendous, a trumpet blast of a rip from somewhere around my nether regions. I hold the position, bent double. The chatter of the shop outside has been replaced by grim silence. The beautiful people are displeased.

There is some desperate hope within me that the sound wasn’t what I thought it was, that actually I’ve farted extremely loudly without feeling it. A swift examination of the jeans’ rear seam dispels this notion. They are horribly ripped.

“Are you OK in there?” sneers Brooklyn girl. My girlfriend clears her throat. I am no longer the hero of the hour.

This is almost certainly the worst thing that’s ever happened to me, but with awful clarity I realise the only option available. Like a true Brit, I’m going to pretend that everything’s fine and buy the jeans out of sheer shame.

“Fine, thanks. I love these jeans. Just. Love. Them,” I say, stifling a sob. “Could you ring them through the till now and I’ll pay once I’m out?”

There are tears in my eyes as I approach the counter with the tightly folded jeans under my arm. Bag? No, darling, I don’t need a bloody bag.

Being British, I haven’t even dared to ask how much the things are going to set me back. The card machine is presented with a flourish and I can barely look at the screen as I tap out another line of debt to Barclays. In my head I’m working out which of my friends knows how to sew.

“Oh and by the way,” trills Brooklyn girl as the irrevocable green button is pushed, “you can’t wash them.” And she’s right, I can’t. Not for four months, apparently, when I’m allowed to gently steam them in the bathroom. Insult, meet injury.

So for a while I wandered around Shoreditch in the sewn up jeans. I pretended to be one of them. You know, “them” the impossibly smug types that work in the creative industries and all look like David Bowie. The sort whose jeans, far from being simply tight, are easily mistaken for a paint job. Them.

I’m fooling nobody, of course, because I don’t look like Bowie. I have no hair, you see, and I’ve a bulbous head that’s too big for my body. I look a bit like a potato that’s been skewered on a fork, and no amount of trendy clothing is going to fix that.

In the end the jeans split again anyway. Now they lie crumpled at the bottom of my wardrobe while my overdraft continues to expand faster than Oprah.

The moral of the story? Fashion is mass cultural hypnosis. It’s a hamster wheel for the special ones, the ones with stone-cutting cheekbones and flawless skin. We ordinaries just aren’t cut out for it. So wear what you damned well please. You’ll be happier, richer and you’ll be able to use your pockets.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

Look at the comment of the previous article. Instead of barring ugly or mishappen people, recommend masks/plastic surgery or extra large/all covering clothes instead – like a burkha or kaftan which the most shapeless or weirdly shaped among Arabs pull off just fine. A stylized mask wearing ugly person would be just as cool because the ‘beautiful people’ (unless partocularly communal as a group far from mainstream – like extreme subculture types) are also people would be happy to keep them as friends even though the mask will be the person rather than the person and superficiality of the feeling of doing a good deed while not being offended by bad looks make the presence of these people worthwhile. Ugly People Should Bother With Fashion, but should make the effort to hide their ugliness with faux aesthetic which is better than plain ugly.

For those who ‘ . . . look a bit like a potato that’s been skewered on a fork . . . ‘ take the burkha or kaftan advice seriously, except use material that the target audience will be appreciative of. The beautiful people of course can get away with the shabbiest outfit or second hand shop stuff.

The moral of the story? Mass cultural hypnosis needs to be countered. The special ones, will get off that hamster wheel for the ones wearing phantom of the opera style (or any other style one prefers) stone-cutting angular cheekbones and flawless skin. The ordinaries just aren’t cut out for it. So wear what damned well pleases them. They’ll be happier, richer and they’ll be able to use whats in their pockets. Dress code and ‘beauty code’ still can be applied, in which ‘uglies’ will be barred from entry, much like bouncers/doormen on particularly crowded nights or popular venues, choose the best looking people to enter their pubs etc.. so that the crowd looks cool rather than a total mess. During bad economy times (or *shudder* a ugly genetics boom – this is what might have happened in some countries with a lack of good models btw)  if the venues are considered expensive, the most appearance discriminating venues will be the first to drop off.

‘Ultima Forever’ is return to kinder, gentler, thoughtful gaming – by Larry Frum, Special to CNN – August 31, 2012 — Updated 2159 GMT (0559 HKT) | Filed under: Gaming and Gadgets

In “Ultima Forever,” players must make choices based on questions that often don’t have black-or-white answers.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

“Ultima Forever” challenges players to gain virtue, not hack and slash
The game is a followup to 1985’s “Ultima IV”
Designers say questions in the game have no black-and-white answers
It will be released late this year for PC, iPad

(CNN) — Making a video game espousing the virtues of compassion, sacrifice and spirituality doesn’t sound like a winner in today’s battle-happy gaming environment. But 27 years ago, it was exactly the type of game that caught the imagination and spurred excitement in gamers.

Developers at Bioware are hoping to catch that same virtual lightning in a bottle with “Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar,” the next chapter in the search for the Avatar of Britannia.

In it, the hero must achieve the highest levels in eight virtues: Valor, Justice, Honor, Compassion, Honestly, Humility, Sacrifice and Spirituality. Through actions in the game, players strive to become a shining example of good for the population.

The new title is based off “Ultima IV,” a computer game dating all the way to 1985. It is considered one of the most innovative games ever because of its divergence from the typical hack-and-slash approach. Lead designer Kate Flack said “Ultima Forever” hopes to bring back the appeal of being a good person in a video game.

“Games are a cultural artifact. They are affected by all the things around them,” Flack said. The developers of “Ultima IV” “were saying games can be about being a good person. At the time, it was in reaction to a backlash against the violence and things in video games.

“I think the parallel nowadays is that we are almost frightened of high fantasy. If it’s not covered in blood, we don’t believe it. I’m going to be as subversive as ‘Ultima IV’ was at the time.”

“Ultima Forever” picks up 21 years after “Ultima IV” left off. Players can join up to three friends, as each works toward the goal of becoming the virtuous “avatar” of the land.

While the graphics, look and feel have obviously been upgraded due to advancements in technology over the years, Flack said the concept still remains true to what it was nearly three decades ago.

“It’s about mastering yourself, not mastering the world,” she said. “When (a non-player character) asks you a question … you are forced to pause and ask yourself, ‘What do I think is the right thing to do? Do I want to be kind, or do I want to be fair? What kind of person am I?’ ”

Rather than seeing how many creatures a player can kill or how much gold they can accumulate, Flack is more interested in getting inside the player’s head. She says the game is almost like a personality test, giving players choices in the attempt to be a good person. How they get there is up to them.

“It’s not like the game is going to grab you by the throat and make you make these choices. It is a slow drip-drip-drip. And maybe they will start to recognize these same choices in their real life and become better people,” she said.

As players progress, choices need to be made about questions that don’t always have black-and-white answers.

You find a bag of gold, which you know was stolen. Do you give it to the authorities (Honesty), donate it to the church (Spirituality) or hand it over to a starving family (Compassion)? Keeping it, which would be the likely choice in most of today’s games, doesn’t help you win this one.

Bioware designer Alec Fisher-Lasky was a former Arlington County, Virginia, police officer before deciding to get into video games. He says the decisions made in “Ultima Forever” are similar to the types of decisions he had to make while on the force — just at a much slower pace.

“When I found out they were working on the ‘Ultima’ series, I was really excited about it. It ties into what I had done as a police officer facing these kinds of moral decisions every day,” Fisher-Lasky said. “I wanted to give that experience to players. What do I do in this situation? What are the consequences? Why would I do this one thing over another?”

He said it was a challenge to make the player feel like their choices truly matter. If designers have done their job well, he thinks, people will care about their in-game decisions and really examine what kind of person outside of the game they are to make those choices.

“Ultima Forever” will be released free-to-play for PCs and the iPad this year, with more character classes, content and platforms announced later. Flack said Bioware’s experience with massively multiplayer online games allowed it to stuff a lot of detail into the mobile version without sacrificing its look on more powerful PCs.

Fans are already reacting to the early news of a new “Ultima” game. Players who played “IV” in their youth have said on the “Ultima Forever” Facebook page that they are looking forward to sharing a similar experience with their kids. Diehard fans of the franchise are also very excited.

“‘Ultima IV’ is the game that all modern (role-playing games) flow from, but it’s also kind of the impossible platonic ideal of a (computer role-playing game),” said retro-gamer Ben Lesnick, 31, of Washington. “It came at this incredibly special time in game development history where that kind of game could exist. Really, if ‘Ultima Forever’ is one-tenth as engrossing as ‘Ultima IV,’ then we’ll have a pretty fantastic game that’s worth playing on its own merits.”

Flack said she tried to be respectful while working on this project. She understands the history and emotion tied into the franchise and didn’t want to override people’s memories of the game.

“It’s not going to suit everybody,” she said. “And in fact, making a game that does suit everybody is going to let the fans down more, in a way. It’s bland. It’s insipid. It’s the worst possible thing you can do with ‘Ultima.’ I’d rather try and make a statement than not.”

Players may sign up now to be involved in the “Ultima Forever” beta test.

You find a bag of gold, which you know was stolen. Do you give it to the authorities (Honesty), donate it to the church (Spirituality) or hand it over to a starving family (Compassion)? Keeping it, which would be the likely choice in most of today’s games, doesn’t help you win this one.

i) Authorities are not always honest, they do not deserve the right to disemburse even, they probably wouldn’t of the owners do not turn up to claim.
ii) Donate to Church, again an even narrower interest group which may allude to fundamentalism and disenfranchisement of all other faiths.
iii) Hand over to starving family . . . give a man a fish vs teaching a man to fish vs BUYING the man a fishstocks for fish farming ponds. None of the above options sorry, just too simplistic. BUYING the man a fish farm was not offered as an option . . .

How about buying the election so that land can be distributed? If the gold is too little, then put that aside until enough to buy a field to grow food that can feed MANY starving families. The above worries me, thoughtful yes, potential for being manipulative and imposing limited option mindsets – very much so as well. Kinda sickening and dangerous when scripting is not open source, when software codes are all monopolized, could you trust ‘thoughtful’ to people who’d rather develoope your game for you or give you the power to develop your own games . . . so here we go again . . . another round of b.s. that a simple vote cast in the right manner that could distribute land and wealth . . . Kinder and gentler? For certain. But clarity of thought? Just as bad as the rest of ‘post-book era’ offerings.

Bollywood | Posted on Sep 01, 2012 at 01:11pm IST – Sherlyn Chopra: I’ve had paid sex but I’m no longer available – IBNLive.com

New Delhi: Ever since she announced on Twitter that she will feature nude on the cover of Playboy magazine, Bollywood actor of mainly B-grade films, Sherlyn Chopra, has never stopped creating ripples on social media websites, be it with raunchy pictures, teasers of her photoshoot, or as is in this case – outstanding confession of having accepted money for sex.

A series of ‘confessional’ tweets from the unverified account of Chopra, who supposedly tweets from the handle @SherlynChopra, shocked users on Friday. Chopra claimed in those tweets she has had paid sex in her life, but she is past that phase now. In the contrite posts – meant for her fans – a slightly defensive Chopra said it was up to people on how they wanted to perceive her after reading her tweets.

“The confessions of ‘just a girl’ – Dear all, before I proceed, let me make it very clear that the intent of sharing the following confessions. It is not to create public sympathy or to raise eyebrows or to project myself as a ‘bad girl gone good’, it’s just to state a few facts. Physical intimacy with me at a price…. I’ve had sex for money, having indulged in out of free will…. but ever since I got back from LA in July this year, there has been a shift in my level of consciousness,” Chopra said.

Sherlyn Chopra: I’ve had paid sex but I’m no longer available

She had spent some time shooting for her Playboy cover at the famous Playboy mansion and posted photos with (soft porn) mogul Hugh Hefner.

“I now understand that I cannot claim to be ‘free’ and continue to make choices n decisions under obligation. I enjoy being bold. I enjoy oozing sexuality in still pictures and in moving visuals. I enjoy being a tease. I enjoy sex when it is the end result of an uncontrollable lust and or attraction. Sorry to disappoint you but I’m no longer available for paid sex,” she said.

Chopra then gets philosophical.

“I’ve come to realize that I derive no pleasure or joy out of physical intimacy that is pursued out of obligation (mental/emotional/financial or any other kind). I now believe that there is in infinite power and infinite intelligence within each one of us and if we persist in having a child like faith and a child like belief in the powers of the Spirit/the Subconscious Mind. “Then there shall be no lack of tangible and intangibles riches in our lives. You are free to make a mockery of my confessions or to consider them as utter nonsense or to believe in their genuineness,” she said.

The response from her readers was largely positive. They praised her gumption and honesty.

One user @justeshoo said “Mam it takes guts to admit mistakes, but you have done it amidst the whole world, I salute you.” Another @jaspreet_abat said “Such a bold girl you are. Good luck Sherlyn.” and @Stanmanplan said “it takes courage to come clean!”

“I now understand that I cannot claim to be ‘free’ and continue to make choices n decisions under obligation. THEN SHERLYN GOES . . . I enjoy being bold. I enjoy oozing sexuality in still pictures and in moving visuals. I enjoy being a tease. I enjoy sex when it is the end result of an uncontrollable lust and or attraction. Oxymoron? The first part almost is an Orwellian NLP . . .  ‘free’ and continue to make choices n decisions under obligation’ is contradictory to the spirit of the second statement . . . another aging person quits, and in suitably good time too. No exactly an adult worker type per se, but a much needed voice.  Pity Chopra had to ‘drop’ the lifestyle rather than call that retirement and switch to teaching others to be relaxed about this, to be sex positive. Perhaps set up a “Playboy Mansion in India”, to spread the sex positive mindset, with appropriate warning to those who might want to gentrify later of course . . . Chopra may technicality (Can someone who has technically done sex work as a hobbyist count?) never fit into a Brahmin mould now, but does represent a well near perfect facet of human existence and consciousness.

Hugh Hefner needs to formalize that RLD school or whatnot, run for Congressman to put a permanent footprint in at least non-fundo nationsworldwide (or US states with no RLD). This ‘ choices n decisions under obligation’ talk is something when one has not decided to seek something beyond human levels of existence, flowing with the current tends to be what most young people do . . . Let the ‘mere mortals’ enjoy their lives without polluting their minds with all encompassing/all brutalizing religion etc..!

The female rights movement needs this for of alternative voice! The adult work industry needs a role model as well, though overcharging (charging should be on the basis of the wealth of the customer) and being choosy of who to work with (this determines if one is professional or a hobbyist), becomes quite blurred if Chopra is to lead in this area! Something to think about you adult workers! And try for 401K pension plans as well. Professionals need to prepare for retirement as well, doubtless the less ‘capable’ or well connected will choose mistressing or gold digging escorting for the rich pretty boys – beware sensitive souls among this lot, do your family background checks if you want bonafide UC types to marry and not the incidental adult worker looking for  way out of poverty . . . Run for congresswoman in India and set up formal RLDs!

‘Not up to our standards’: Playboy rejects proposal by teen bride Courtney Stodden – by Daily Mail Reporter – PUBLISHED: 01:12 GMT, 3 September 2012 | UPDATED: 20:17 GMT, 3 September 2012

They’ve been dropping some pretty heavy handed hints, but today teen bride Courtney Stodden, and her mother Krista, got the brush off from Playboy magazine.

The former beauty queen and wife of 52-year-old actor Doug Hutchinson, has reportedly been flooded with offers from porn producers after turning 18 last week.

After the bottle blonde teen made her feelings clear on the matter this weekend when she tweeted: ‘No to porn…yes to @Playboy’, the world famous magazine apparently said she was not up to their standards.

No thanks: Courtney Stodden, pictured on Sunday, has been turned down by Playboy magazine

Just say no: Courtney ruled out a porn role however, preferring to strip for the more conservative Playboy magazine

According to reports a source at the magazine said Courtney would not make the cut due to her ‘enhancements’.

But Stodden‘s mother told MailOnline that her daughter had an entirely natural figure.

‘She has never had any plastic surgery – nothing to her face, her breasts, her body. She looks good without makeup,’ Krista said.

And she explained that Courtney had just been ‘expressing an interest’ in Playboy.

‘We are in conversation with Playboy. They haven’t even seen any of her photos yet,’ she said.

‘Courtney was saying that she would be interested in Playboy.’

Kirsta, who signed the legal consent form allowing her to marry when she was just 16, describes herself as Courtney’s ‘momager’.

She has two older daughters, who are both married with children ‘to men their own age’ and live ‘conventional lives’ in Washington State.

Of Courtney she said: ‘She’s not conventional.’

The teen proved her figure was natural last year, when she appeared on Dr Drew Pinksy’s television show Lifechangers.

‘I guess she was telling us the truth. She does not have implants,’ said Dr Drew on the show after an ultrasound showed only natural breast tissue.

Playboy to Courtney Stodden – You’ll NEVER Be in Our Magazine

Young Bride with a matured outlook.

Stodden told TMZ Live this week she is considering doing porn — after receiving at least 4 offers —  but then tweeted last night she wasn’t … and was doing Playboy instead.

But according to our Playboy sources, no offer has been made to Stodden nor will one EVER be made. Our sources say Stodden “doesn’t meet the standards of a Playboy model” … adding she looks too “enhanced.”

One source added, “[Playboy] would NEVER take her. I don’t think anybody really wants to see that anyway.”

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

One source added, “[Playboy] would NEVER take her. I don’t think anybody really wants to see that anyway.” Thats the voice of 1% discrimination against the middles and lowers. But focus demographics need to be maintained. Don’t worry COurtney theres always Hustler or Penthouse, if not some of the other newer porn brands.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Playboy (Upper class audiences)

Playboy is an American men’s magazine that features CLASSY photographs of nude women as well as journalism and fiction. It was founded in Chicago in 1953 by Hugh Hefner and his associates, and funded in part by a $1,000 loan from Hefner’s mother.

Natural look or natural only eh? Never seemed that Playboy was very middle class or above? But a helpful clarification. Playboy is just being for the 1% now, boo! But definately an alpha male icon bastion, though dismissive of the LCs. Try Hustler or Penthouse (less toffish and wider range of audiences, being inclusive of hardcore etc..) then Courtney! Hugh is so lucky! Everyone should have an alpha fostering mother like Hugh has regards mentality towards social form! Playboy is great for making inroads into the more fundo areas bring upper class oriented and hence less ‘rowdy’, but somewhat neglects the lower classes. Still some mags will have their focal demographics and Playboy has done tremendously well thus far and should not deviate and lose focus. Playboy should push for RLDs in every State Capital in the USA, as well as Playboy Mansions in every state as well. Look here if McDonalds can do 10 times as many outlets, Playboy can at least have 1 ‘outlet’ in each Capital. Ridiculous to say that people have to travel that far to enjoy the ‘Playboy’ atmosphere especially in the USA.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hustler

‘Today, Hustler is still considered more explicit (and more self-consciously lowbrow) than such well known competitors as Playboy and Penthouse. It frequently depicts hardcore themes, such as the use of sex toys, penetration and group sex.’

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penthouse_%28magazine%29

In 1998 Penthouse decided to change its format and began featuring sexually explicit pictures (i.e., actual oral, vaginal, and anal penetration), beginning with photos from the famed Stolen Honeymoonkirag sex tape featuring Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee. It also began to regularly feature pictorials of female models urinating, which, until then, had been considered a defining limit of illegal obscenity as distinguished from legal pornography. The new owners (see below) significantly softened the content of the magazine starting with the January 2005 issue. Penthouse no longer showed male genitalia, real or simulated male-female sex, or any form of explicit hardcore content. (It does still feature female-female simulated sex, at least on occasion.) While this change allowed the return of a limited number of mainstream advertisers to the magazine, it has not significantly raised the number of subscribers; total circulation is still below 350,000.[5] (Many insiders feel that the softening of content may have hurt the magazine.

Guccione should never have allowed that post 2005 changes, as the fortune of the mag fell, so did Guccione leave us. Better a small outfit that didn’t change the original premise. The new ‘owners’ evidently were there to destroy Penthouse. How about a new focusing on the middles and alternative demographic? Don’t focus on F1, forcus on Car Modding types etc.. Don’t have to go all 1% like Playboy, but no need to get too deep like Hustler too. The 99% and middle class are thfocus of the world now, how about Guccione Jr. start targetting these focus groups?

Playboy is worth 40+ million 10 times Hustler’s 400 million. The 1% are out numbered 100 times which means Hustler is underperformed! Conversely the 1% do own more than 40% of the world’s wealth, so Playboy should be 1.6 billion worth but this is probably because Playboy has a narrow ethnic group representation. How about making inroads to all State Capitals in the USA and all Capitals of the world for all 3 companies?

Christian Louboutin CAN trademark signature red soles after winning appeal (unless the shoe itself is the same colour) – By Daily Mail Reporter and Associated Press – PUBLISHED: 16:13 GMT, 5 September 2012 | UPDATED: 21:43 GMT, 5 September 2012

A federal appeals court in Manhattan says the distinctive red soles of Christian Louboutin shoes are entitled to trademark protection.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday ruled in favor of the French maker of luxury shoes worn by stars such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Scarlett Johansson and Halle Berry.

The court says Louboutin is entitled to protect its brand against red-soled shoes made by competitor Yves Saint Laurent S.A.S., which is also based in Paris.

Win: The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan says the distinctive red soles of Christian Louboutin shoes are entitled to trademark protection

An exception to the rule is when the shoe itself is red as well. In that instance, a rival may match the color of the sole to the color of the shoe.

This would allow YSL to continue to produce ‘monochrome’ versions of its Tribtoo platform pumps.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in 2008 had granted the trademark protection to Louboutin.

Louboutin has applied glossy vivid red to the outsoles of women’s shoes since 1992.

The shoes sell for upwards of $700 a pair.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

Ridiculous. More than 20 years ago there were pairs of relatively unknown brands of shoes which were exactly the opposite and did not cost 700. I owned one such pair in fact. Inside of the shoe was lined with red velvet, outside was black leather, the sole of the shoe was black. This Louboutin pair was black-black-red as opposed to red-black-black. The design of the shoe itself unless exactly the same cannot count as copying. Combinations of colours is just one aspect!

Colours and major elements of an article of clothing or shoe cannot be copyrighted. A shoe has 3 portions of which any single or mixed colour can be applied and impossible to bve a trademark signature by. – inside, outside, sole. The judge is colluding and Christian Louboutin is causing an illegal monopoly over COLOUR. Would Daily Mail like to do a piece on APARTHEID in MALAYSIA?

Hip Hop Manager Chris Lighty Dies in Apparent Suicide – Thursday, August 30, 2012

Chris Lighty may not be a household name, but the artists he helped rise to the spotlight like 50 Cent, Q-Tip, Diddy, Foxy Brown, Mariah Carey, Busta Rhymes, and Missy Elliot definitely are. The Bronx native is the man behind Violater Records and Management, and it’s with heavy hearts that we share that he has passed away. According to reports, he was found dead in his Bronx apartment from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Earlier today, he was involved in a spat with his ex-wife at his South Riverdale apartment and law enforcement sources also believe he was dealing with financial struggles, including a $5 million tax debt to the IRS.

Case Against Pimp/Madam Who Prepares and Grooms workers as young as 13 year olds for Sex Dismissed – by Laup Japcar and Nightly Wail Reporter – PUBLISHED: 13:25 GMT, 25 September 2012 | UPDATED: 13:26 GMT, 25 September 2012

RLD pic for demonstrative purposes (unrelated to article).

In depressed economies teen prostitution is rife, taking money for sex simply is part of growing up. To perform a sex act in a car, have sex parties in defunct properties. ‘In recent times and recent years in this country, we have begun to realise how the extent of sexwork for basic necessities among youth is becoming more prevalent as wealth distribution and opportunity and costs of education become out of reach of the ordinary man. As we are not a Socialist country that distributes kand or the wealth of the plutocracy, sex work is necessary to protect the independence of these pre-adults who’s parents can barely finance themselves.

‘These unwary children must be groomed so they can protect themselves from predators,’ said the unnamed groomer.

Sex workers in depressed economies are sometimes paid with joyrides on anything from a farmer’s tractor to taxi rides to long distance bus fare and air tickets, for soft drinks or alcohol, drugs (we do not recommend and frown upon synthetics) or concert and film tickets. Used mobile phones or used electronics are also accepted. Small change, cigarettes, cuddly toys, treats for handjobs or companionship. Meals (kebabs or other fast food) and shelter are also given as payment for ‘full service’.

The presiding judge M.Gruder said :

Judge McGruder

I am not dealing with a team of predators and there are no allegations that the identified clients forced themselves on the boys or girls and duly paid the required minimum wage they charged.’

Predator Team 2

Nai Nameoy, 54, who lives in a caravan on a farm, was found not guilty of statuary rape as the girl told him she would to have sex with him for minimum wage (national) or an hour’s wages for the session which lasted ‘half an hour’.

The unnamed groomer helps identify children and young people who are being taken advantage of or paid below minimum wage, or who are at risk of being sexually exploited, and helps them decide if sex work is for them or not, and works with the parents if needed, as well as identify victims that need freeing from abusive madaming or pimping relationships. ‘The consent contract is very important and we strongly encourage that both or either parties or their agents have a copy that is signed clearly or even better have a video recording of every clients that clearly states consent in cases like these.’ said the groomer.

When laws are not clear or common sense, we are a country governed by free will, not theocracy and if there is no coercion or lack of mental capacity on simple exchanges like this, there is no case.‘ Judge M.Gruder said in the closing statement.

In the impact statement, one of the sex workers felt her ‘trust in males has (later) matured.” while another said she “would be ready for the first day of the rest of her life as a sex worker’ after she completes her stint with the groomer. As of 2012 many governments do not recognize sex work as deserving of proper legal status as work, or d

eserving of pension or health plans yet. Prostitution and sex work is still illegal in about 2/3rds of the world’s nations.

David Piecehigh and Piecehigh’s boss were compensated by the complainant for four days of lost work during the proceedings.

Thanks for the inspiration for this mostly original article Dailymail from your faked one! Either or both articles do not change the fact that a proper RLD and pensions for sex workers is still needed. More NGOs to help sex workers empower themselves and demand for legal rights as well, and a sex positive mindset for the RLD going/working demographic!

Popstar, 24, and model, 12, in ‘relationship’ – Tuesday, 25 September 2012 16:17

A 24-year-old popstar and a 12-year-old model have apparently fallen for one another, sending social networks in China and around the world into a frenzy.

Akama Miki, 12, declared her love to Zhang Muyi, twice her age and more importantly an adult, and it appears the feeling is mutual.

Miki’s a pre-teen sensation in China with a huge following – about 500,000 on the Chinese social network Weibo – and only follows one person back: Muyi.

The two have posted lovey-dovey posts to each other and photos of themselves together on Weibo.

While there’s no suggestion of a physical relationship, Muyi wished her a happy 12th birthday and vowed to wait “four more birthdays” until Miki is a legal age.

Miki responded: “I will always love you and you will be my darling forever!!!”, attaching a couple of love hearts at the end.

The photo of the pair touching fingers by the water at night, expressing a kiss, has created shockwaves.

Web sceptics have been quick to call the relationship a fake and a publicity stunt.

Still, why would a 24-year-old pretend to be in love with a child to boost his profile?

If you take away “popstar” and “model”, you’re just left with a 24-year-old man declaring his love for a 12-year-old. Alarm bells are ringing.

Demogoguery. The Prophet married wife no.2 Aishah at 6 and ‘took’ Aisha at 9. This is none of anyone’s business.  Besides, Muyi wished her a happy 12th birthday and vowed to wait “four more birthdays” until Miki is a legal age. Whats the alarm bells b.s. at the end of the article?

‘Soccer Mom Madam’ pleads guilty to promoting prostitution – Anna Gristina, a mother of four, won’t have to serve any more jail time

Prosecutors said Anna Gristina made millions running an illicit escort service for 15 years. Gristina maintained she was merely involved in a dating service. – by Jonathan Dienst, Shimon Prokupecz and Ida Siegal – NBCNewYork.com

The suburban mother of four accused of running an upscale escort service in Manhattan pleaded guilty in Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday.

Anna Gristina, 44, of Monroe, N.Y., pleaded guilty to a single count of promoting prostitution, stemming from a July 2011 tryst she allegedly arranged involving two women and an undercover officer posing as a client.

Read the original story at NBCNewYork.com

Gristina will be ordered to serve five years of probation when she’s sentenced on Nov. 20. The four months she’s already spent behind bars will count toward the jail portion of her sentence, and she won’t have to serve any additional time.

Prosecutors said their five-year investigation revealed Gristina had a roster of wealthy, well-placed clients and boasted of law-enforcement connections during 15 years in a business that made her millions.

She has maintained she was merely starting a dating service.

Gristina was arrested Feb. 22 and was held for months on $2 million bond. An appeals court in June called the amount “unreasonable and an abuse of discretion” and lowered it.

She was released on $250,000 bond in June after four months behind bars.

Gristina’s lawyer unsuccessfully tried to have the case thrown out in August, arguing that the DA’s office “vindictively prosecuted her as a result of her failure to cooperate with investigators” during what he called an illegal interrogation.

Gristina said in court papers that investigators shrugged off her requests for a lawyer and told her they’d let her go if she gave them information about five men — not named in her filings, but described as a financier, an international banker and a member of a politically connected family, among others.

The DA’s office countered in court papers that Gristina “has not produced a shred of evidence of actual vindictiveness.”

A grand jury decided there was enough evidence to indict Gristina before her arrest, undermining her argument that she was prosecuted because she didn’t cooperate, Assistant District Attorneys Elizabeth Roper and Charles Linehan wrote in a July filing.

The judge’s ruling didn’t address the way Gristina was questioned, saying simply that there was adequate evidence for the case to go forward.

Jaynie Baker, accused of assisting Gristina as a matchmaking recruiter, struck a deal with prosecutors in August.

Probably isn’t even a real article but here’s answering for answering’s sake.

While the current district Gristina resides in may not have been suitable in some ways, this woman needs to stand up for her right to earn a living through adult services. Being a madam or pimp is not for everyone, but the mindset and skill set is sufficiently rare and unique to need to preserve and not punish about. Overcharging though is not particularly conducive to wealth distribution, even as sequestration of wealth is no less harmful.

There is nothing to be guilty or plead guilty about, Gristina was neither exploitative not doing anything illegal in the ‘spirit of the law’ sense. Perhaps Gristina could challange the state law and set a legal precedent against what could be a form of discrimination against the right to adult work industry work and for association with sex work related workers like pimps and madams as well as adult industry customers. Promoting prostitution should not be an issue unless the area is of religious significance (not contrived though simply to exclude) or peopled by a majority fundo demographic. Where is America’s diversity and sense of justice? The wealth accured was extreme, but what Gristina did was the most natural thing in context of society and hardly harmful save by the brittleness and bigotry of the fundos or leglalists against the lower half of the human body and the industry related.

Under massive pressure and perhaps guilt from overcharging Madam Gristina crumbled and pleaded guilty instead of standing for Adult Industry rights. Shows what the media circus and heartbreaking psychological pressure from the vicious minded society can do to subvert one’s personal values or even the Judiciary’s sense of neutrality. Not civilised at all! At the most relocate Gristina and return some of that oevercharged wealth to the clients and dismiss the case!

You’d think NYC was some fundo state’s backyard the way they treat the Adult Services sector! Legalise and zone! Take a look at Singapore’s RLD model or the Zona Tolerancia in Mexico, Amsterdam’s RLD, and understand that NYC has far more people that the above list of places that need such services.

Not just Freedom of Speech and fighting for the right to speak, but also Freedom of Life and fighting for the right to live. Well judges? Do your job as lawmakers, not jailing is good, but amendments to law need to be implemented at once to prevent wasting legal time and tax monies on non-cases like this.
