More Grey Potpourri

  • Added a few more links that I strongly encourage everyone to visit:
Pat Powers Blog - Pat writes some great articles and if you've never read his stories, especially KARG, then I beg you to do so. It's well worth the cheese, which is a measly $5. If you can't afford five bucks a month, then stop reading blogs and go get a damn job.

Raffish - The clip site to join, and stupid cheap for all that you get.

Big MT's Blog - Writes good posts about things others miss (Like our Italian buddy PantyDiD suddenly going MIA.) and he was nice enough to feature my blog, so here's my shout out. Also, he's a big Andrea Neal (Sigh...) fan too, so he's got to be a good guy, right?

Danger Theatre - Posts a lot of clips, including a lot of LARGE, high quality clips, which is great unless you're still on dial-up, in which case it's time to leave 1995 and join the rest of us here in 2008.

Major John's - Sadly, The Major left us a while back, but his legacy lives on. Another great clip site, just a shade below Raf's, but that's mainly due to quantity. In terms of quality and posting hard-to-find gems, this site rocks. You can also get The Major's videos, which are middle-of-the-road in terms of rope work and gags, but many of his "models" are off-the-chart hotties, including one lass who could be Jessica Alba's lost sister. Yes, she's that hot.

Brian's Page - Always free, always informative, always relevant. If you don't visit here regularly, then you're not really into DiD's, you're just piddling at it. Sounds great right? It is, except that it's run by a dictator with the disposition of a gal on a three month long PMS cycle. If you want to post, there's a rather long, and damn sure strict, list of rules to follow or face the wrath of ... The Moderator. Not that the rules are unfair, because they're not. But if you break them, even a little bit, be prepared. More than likely you won't get a firm but polite rebuke, you'll get a harsh, mean-spirited slam of the why-are-you-such-a-fucking-idiot variety. Read the rules, and I very much suggest that you hold off posting for a while and just lurk until you figure things out.

In Memorandum

On a separate sad note, Bettie Page has passed away. I was never a super-duper fan of her actual bondage work, which I found to be vastly overrated, but clearly she was a babe of the honey-muffin level who at her peak could hold her own with just about any plastic-enhanced celeb-babes of today. In addition, her work inspired many others, including Dave Stevens, who gave us The Rocketeer and an truly awesome t-shirt that I purchased when it first came out and never had the stones to wear in public.

Betty Page was I think a very brave woman who owned her sexuality in a way few women did in the 50s. It's a shame she has passed.

BTW, found this on the web, thought you'd like it, though it's not about Betty Page:
