Playboy Magazine Drops All Nude Photos

Playboy’s circulation has dropped from 5.6 million in 1975 to about 800,000 now. “That battle has been fought and won. You’re now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free.” – Scott Flanders / NY Times

That is why Playboy magazine (Cory Jones / Editor) is trying something different and will no longer be posting nude photos in their magazine.

Sunny Garcia Quits Xterra Wetsuits

“Please read my post because this is when I was really happy to be part of Xterra. Back in time it was one big happy family, things were great and everyone was working hard to make this company great. As I sit here writing this getting ready for the biggest test of my life #roadtokona2015 I’ve come to the end of this partnership with Xterra because the owners here have no respect for their workers and treat them like second rate citizens. I’m sorry to anyone that bought product from this company if I had known what low life’s the owners of Xterra were I’d never have helped this company. If you are a friend or fan of mines please do not support this company and no I did not get fired. I’ll take this opportunity to say to @keithsimmons and @gturquand to say I fucking Quit!!!!!!!” @xterrawetsuits – Sunny Garcia

American Apparel Goes Bankrupt

“American Apparel and RadioShack join numerous peers that have succumbed to intense retail competition. Some analysts say that the United States simply has too many brands — and too many brick-and-mortar stores — chasing consumer spending that is growing sluggishly at best.” – New York Times
