Netbox, Quickflix, Vidster?

VideoBoxUnless you’ve been living in an Amish Paradise for the last few months, you’re probably aware that Netflix has been alienating and frustrating its remaining customers with price hikes, service changes, elapsed licensing deals, and generally tumultuous and upsetting behavior. Now CEO Reed Hastings has announced a split that will result in Netflix ceasing DVD rentals to provide streaming video alone, with new off-shoot company Quickster handling all physical media. Customers are outraged.

Over at VideoBox, on of the most consistently well reviewed adult video sites on the ‘net, and surely one of, if not the largest, customers are also voicing their dissenting opinions. Having months ago launched a trial beta version of something called VideoBox 3.0 (or VB3), the massively popular site only recently made the official switch to the new format. Customers have called the new, feature-laden design both a commendable innovation and a reason to leave the site:

    – “Please, let me know when you are sunsetting VB2 in time to cancel my subscription.” – Jim

    – “I don’t like the VB3 interface as it gives me less control over the content. This whole transition seems pointless.” – jfro21

    – “What pisses me of the most is vb3 is so slow compared to vb2 and it is a hassle to download anything. vb3 seems geared more towards streaming than downloading.” – Nathan

    – “Love the improvements, don’t think I’ll need to go back to VB2 anymore.” – TDK

    – “Love it, VB2 what?” – Dante

    – “Bravo guys. Now we’re cookin… Lubrication manufacturers everywhere are cheering increased sales projections.” –  Shawn

So, after months and months of revisions, modifications, and adjustments, it seems VB3 is on the verge of being VideoBox members’ only browsing option. While some will petulantly throw in their membership cards for try to find a comparable alternative (not likely), I’m willing to bet most will stick around for this exciting new phase of VideoBox’s continued domination of the online video porn game. It seems Netflix (or is that Quickster) could learn a thing or two from porn providers, after all.

Ufuk

Ufuk at XXX VaultThis week’s edition of Mr. Pink’s Wacky, Strange, Bizarre, Curious, and often Downright Funny Porn Star name of the week brings us the hilariously and somewhat curiously titled Ufuk.

Ufuk??? Yes, say it with me, Ufuk.

Ufuk was found was browsing the XXX Vault network for an upcoming review to be featured at MrPinks.com. According to XXX Vault, Ufuk in Turkish is translated to “Horizon.” I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the English translation for Ufuk is “You Fuck.” Ufuk simply has a name you won’t forget.

Mr. Pink’s salutes you Ufuk and your somewhat bizarre porn star name. Keep on fucking Ufuk!

Jenna Jameson’s Wicked Backstage Pass

Jenna Jameson at Wicked Pcitures

One of Mr. Pink’s most recent review subjects, Wicked Pictures, not only presents a huge collection of fantastic hardcore content starring the biggest names in porn, but it also hosts a strong behind-the-scenes archive that definitely warrants your attention. Even among such adult entertainment luminaries as Rebeca Linares, Gianna Lynn, and Jessica Drake, one woman stands above them all and you’ll have plenty of behind-the-scenes footage of Jenna Jameson in one of her most acclaimed features, 1998’s Flashpoint. Not only will Wicked’s backstage footage show you Jenna at the height of her erotic powers, but you might even see a familiar firehouse floor being stained with ejaculate. Yes, folks, that’s the very same Los Angeles firehouse that housed those intrepid spirit hunters, Ghostbusters, also played host to the legendary Jenna and her incredible physique as she drained the cum from fireman Mickey G’s thick cock, letting it fall over those famous tits in truly fiery fashion. The chance to not only watch one of Jenna’s most impressive performances, but to see intimate footage from the set of a bona fide porno classic is, well, totally Wicked.
