Babewatching on Wall Street

Whether you’re a Tea Party fan, one of the nation’s richest, or an attendee either physical or spiritual at the current wave of Occupy Wall Street inspired protests sweeping the planet, the fact that you’re reading this blog means you appreciate the beauty of the feminine form. So too does documentary filmmaker Steven Greenstreet, whose ‘Hot Chicks of Occupy Wall Street’ video has aroused both ire and admiration from 99%-ers around the world. With some women finding Greenstreet and cohort Brandon Bloch’s 4-minute video tribute to a selection of attractive, intelligent, proactive protesters of New York’s Zuccotti Park to be nothing but the sexist work of two lecherous heterosexual ignoramuses, the video has inspired so much debate that Salon even published a 2,500 word discussion amongst its staffers as to whether or not ‘Hot Chicks of Occupy Wall Street’ was sexist. The outcome? Maybe, maybe not.

What seems to be missing from so many of the ad hominem attacks on Greenstreet (as well as a wordless arson attempt at his apartment) is that the vast majority of the videos runtime is devoted to showing protesting women celebrating their common ground together and rather lucidly expressing their reasons for attending the Occupy Wall Street protests. Isn’t that what political activism is all about, getting your point across in a clear and emphatic way? Whatever your stance on Greenstreet’s alleged sexism, you have to admit that his video is drawing a huge amount of attention – from such international news sources as Le Monde (France), Folha (Brazil), Index (Croatia), and, uh, The Salt Lake Tribune – to an increasingly popular cause.

Just be thankful these are Urban Outfitters-wearing hipsters and not the muddy, hairy hippies of the 60s! Well, unless that’s your thing. No judgment here at Mr. Pink’s.

The Great Canadian Litigant

Having appeared on The Great Canadian Male, a site that purports to be “Where Canadian boys go gay!”, adult performer Tony Marcu (a.k.a. “Craig”) intended to return with his wife and son to his native Romania and start the next big adult e-commerce business. But after the Royal Canadian Mounted Police took ten months longer than promised to produce the background check required by Marcu, a dual-citizen of both countries, he’s now suing the Canadian government to the tune of $100 million. He says Romanian police produced his crystal clear background check for that country in two days.

Now back in Canada and living without his wife and son in a rooming house in Toronto, Marcu uses the local library’s free Internet access to search for porn industry jobs online. Unemployed and surviving on welfare, he’s determined to have his day in court and prove that bureaucratic negligence resulted in him losing his savings and loans that were to help him set up what he claims would have been a business with monthly revenue in the area of $34 million. And what would this business do exactly? Marcu told the Toronto Sun his company would have concerned itself with “import[ing] sex health products from Canada, sex toys and ice wine, along with the production of adult films, sales and erotic massage services.” Ice wine, really?

I suppose they can’t all be Peter North, eh?

LAFD vs. Charley Chase

Charley ChaseEveryone in porn knows that Charley Chase is one of the industry’s most delightfully slutty women. In every scene she’s in she clearly has a great time, especially when doing something a little out of the ordinary. Her enthusiasm and  ebullient personality are undeniably infectious, making her a performer with a legion of dedicated fans. Among those who have somehow managed to remain unimpressed by Ms. Chase’s sexual proclivities, however, is Los Angeles Fire Department Chief Brian Cummings, who has launched a full-scale investigation into exactly how and why Chase was able to climb aboard LAFD Engine 263 and perform “lewd acts” in a scene for Brazzers site Asses in Public. Investigation findings suggest the Brazzers crew had previously arranged the shoot with firefighters from Engine 263 in Venice who were fully aware of what was going on and would therefore be subject to disciplinary action.

While Brazzers has curiously remained fairly tight-lipped about the scandal – no news on ZZ Insider and the scene in question is noticeably absent from the now-dormant Asses in Public – Charley Chase has graciously stepped forward and offered her apologies to the LAFD employees hurt by the incident. In a post on her blog, Chase insists that nobody at Engine 263 had any knowledge of what she and the crew were up to and there certainly wasn’t any cooperation from their end, “but shit… it was a fun day!” The kicker is, folks, that day was three years ago! Who knows what an internal investigation will turn up with three years of bureaucratic paperwork in the way, except that Charley Chase is one of porn’s most consistently impressive performers and that Brazzers have been traipsing around in public, cameras and semi-naked women in tow, for years.

If you can put up with the smarmy, condescending delivery myFOXla reporter Ed Laskos, check out Charley Chase’s moment in the mainstream media spotlight as she does her bit to help the LAFD continue “serving with “courage, integrity, and pride.”
