Tit Bits Case Settles Against Exotic Dancer/Stripclub

Personal Injury attorney Lake Lytal, III has settled a case against an exotic dancer for $650,000 after his client was kicked in the face by the dancer at the Cheetah Club near West Palm Beach. The incident happened in September 2008. Lytal’s client, Michael Ireland was seriously injured when Sakeena “Suki” Shageer struck him in the face while she was dancing. Shageer’s highheeled shoe punctured Ireland’s eye socket. Ireland suffered broken bones around his eye and nose and now has permanent double vision. Ireland underwent several surgeries to help repair the damage and incurred extensive medical bills. “When this case was first filed, many people criticized it simply because it occurred at a stripclub. But we feel the $650,000 settlement goes to show that this was a serious case with serious injuries,” Lytal said.

Strip club offers free flu shots It’s that time of year again to start thinking about getting vaccinated against the flu. If you’re in Casselberry, Florida and want a show to go along with your shot, Rachel’s Gentleman’s Club may be the place to go.

The club offered free shots and an open buffet lunch to all Casselberry residents, veterans and city employees on Tuesday. For everyone else the shots cost $30. Rachel’s has offered the free shots for the past seven years.

Porn titans come together to expose pirates The notoriously fragmented porn industry is uniting to expose Internet Age pirates threatening its survival. Studios have begun collaborating on lawsuits targeting people who share digitized adult videos at peerto-peer networks and are exploring technology tools for automatically tracking and protecting copyrighted material online. Pink Visual is rallying dozens of adult entertainment studio operators at an unprecedented Content Protection Retreat in Arizona in October to train in ways to combat piracy and defend intellectual property. “We joke that we can’t agree on where to go for lunch, but this is getting big and we are ready to put aside the egos and sit down to work together on solutions,” said the head of Lightspeed studio Steve Lightspeed. “Piracy on the Internet is much more available to the average user than it ever was.” Internet technology that started as a boon for porn producers by allowing videos or images to be discreetly viewed on home computers has turned against the adult industry, according to Pink president Allison Vivas.

“People were willing back then to pay top dollar for porn, now it looks like the majority of users think adult content is free,” Vivas said. “That is a huge shift in just a few years.” In recent weeks, porn producers began filing lawsuits against “John Does” that share copyrighted adult material at BitTorrent sites that use peer-to-peer networks of personal computers to swap digital content. Larry Flynt Publications sued 635 individuals in a court in Texas on September 20 in the company’s first suit aimed at users of BitTorrent sites and vowed many more such suits were to come. Suits threaten to expose names of accused porn pirates as part of the legal process, and that alone might prove a deterrent. Studios are working with lawyers at Media Copyright Group and Copyright Enforcement Services on the litigation, with an initial legal barrage focused on videos touting shemales or 18-year-old girls. “It seems like it will be quite embarrassing for whichever user ends up in a lawsuit about using a popular shemale title,” Vivas said, using a term that refers to a person who has female features but male genitalia. “When it comes to private sexual fantasies and fetishes, going public is probably not worth the risk that these torrent and peer-to-peer users are taking.” Studios are also taking legal aim at “tube” websites, porn versions of video-sharing service YouTube, which they decry as willing stages for pirated content. Studios expressed frustration with unscrupulous adult video-sharing websites packing pages with pirated material and only being required by law to remove the content after proper owners notice and complain. Lightspeed likened the situation to

Voted America’s #1 Adult Weekly

a car thief only having to return a stolen vehicle after the owner found him and asked for it back. “The technology has outpaced the laws,” Lightspeed said. “We really need to organize ourselves and lobby for a change in the law.” Part of the retreat will be devoted to educating studio operators about technology designed to swiftly find and identify copyrighted content posted online and then remove it or overlay it with advertising or labels. “Companies are going out of business left and right,” Vivas said. “You either have to change your business model or regenerate the value; a lot of companies are doing both.” Pink has been focusing on content for Internet-linked mobile devices including Apple’s popular iPhone smartphones and iPad tablet computers. Vivid Entertainment has fashioned itself as a purveyor of celebrity sex content and porn parodies of classic films or television shows such as “Batman.” Lightspeed launched as an adult pay website in 1999 and has grown to 40 online venues. Lightspeed spent 25,000 dollars and months of work to launch a new website, but shut it down because pirates were giving all of the content away free online within a day. “The economy in general is forcing everybody’s hands,” Lightspeed said. “Piracy is just a glaring gap in everyone’s revenue.” Lightspeed contended that the company’s entire library of content, valued at 10 million dollars, was scattered across the Internet. “A lot of people think porn producers make enough money already and won’t pay them,” Lightspeed said. “The truth is everyone is just working for a living here and we pay our taxes like everyone else does.”

“Woodystock” Feature Entertainer Showcase Party By: Ms. Misha Morê

The famed Woodstock festival of 1969 brought together many of the top rock bands of the time and EXPO “Woodystock” is the theme of this year’s closing night party which was held at the award winning Rick’s Cabaret Club Las Vegas. Feature entertainer and comedian Jade Simone St. Clair and “Howard Stern’s Show,” Ronnie the Limo Driver cohosted the showcase. The showcase performers, in order of appearance, were: Taryn Wylde, Rachel Ryder, Sondra Saxon, Tawnie Monroe, Katsuni, Kristy Morgan, Rachelle Laree, and Shay Lynn.

All of the ladies’ costumes were beautiful and quite unique, and their musical selections were very much appropriate for their shows. When it comes to performing, all eight of these ladies are some of the best feature dancers in the business! Special thanks to Feature Showcase Event Sponsor MAL Entertainment who has been an event and title sponsor for the last 13 years. MAL Entertainment is a conglomerate of adult nightclubs, located primarily in the Carolinas.

THE HARD SCORE.com This is the time of year where the NFL is starting to roll, for some teams like a locomotive powering forward and for others like an avalanche roaring downward. Which way’s your team headin’? Before now if you enjoyed baseball you’d already have said goodbye to the Rangers and switched over to watch the remaining teams strap it on. Man, this is a choice time we’re having. Choice by how sweet it is, and choice by how many different games we get to grab onto. The excitement is like having your own personal amusement park operating on high in your stomach. The Rangers have you taking that long climb to the top of the roller coaster, the Stars are doin’ bumper cars, the Mav’s have you waitin’ in the concession line, and the Cowboys are that anti-gravity ride that just dropped you screaming downward. To be a sports fan right now and live in Dallas, San Francisco, New York, or Philadelphia is the best of all worlds because the action is all over the place. Well, San Fran doesn’t have a hockey team so they don’t get the full ride, but man, for the rest of us it’s pick a game and go. Let’s kick up some trail dust. You know, as the Cowboys were goin’ into that Vikings game I had finally reduced my previous week’s anger down to a slow burn, and by the time another fiasco was in the bag I was back up to habanero heat again.

METRO ANE

MAGAZINE

In fact before I could get this article goin’ I had to take a several hour break because each time I’d get started I’d end up beating on the keyboard. The Cowboys are talking about having to “dig themselves out of this hole” they’ve created. Dig themselves out? With what? The hole they’re buried in doesn’t allow for an escape module like those Chilean miners had. Of the remaining eleven games, just exactly how many of them do you think the ‘Boys will win? There ain’t no switch to throw and the schedule isn’t friendly. To finish 9-7 they’d have to win eight of the eleven. Headin’ our way in the division are the Giants twice, Eagles twice, and Redskins. The other six hold the Jag’s, Packers, Lions, Saints, Colts, and Cards. The way they’re playin’ right now do you see eight wins in there? And even if they miraculously quit playin’ stupid, which eight games do you see them pullin’ out? Best case scenario right now: split with the Giants and Eagles and take the ‘Skins, that’s three wins. Take the Packers, Lions, and Cards that’s three more wins. There’s six. That leaves one Giant, one Eagle, Jags, Saints, and Colts to find two more wins. And that was just to get them to 9-7 and it’ll probably take 10-6 to get in the dance. Zoldan the Great may be able to pull a rabbit outta his hat, but it’s gonna take more ‘n magic for these boys to pull eight more wins.

MLB – Rangers

If you ever wanted to know what the sound a blimp made when punctured, all you had to do was be at Arlington Stadium when the Rangers bullpen gave up five runs in the eighth of Game 1. That was the sound of 50,000 people losing oxygen. Game 1 wasn’t lost to the Yankee’s mystique or their overwhelming superiority, no, it was lost by poor coaching decisions and poor play. I’ve respected Washington’s coaching ability and emphasis on running the bases, but I’ve never accepted his pulling of pitchers too soon like he did to Wilson. In comes Oliver and he doesn’t go from average to bad, nope, he starts off at terrible and freefalls to catastrophic.

Game 2 told you everything you wanted to know about how much real faith the fans have in the Rangers: they couldn’t breathe from the seventh inning on for fear they’d boner up this one, too. Yeah, they won, but the real excitement here was that the Rangers may just have figured out how to win. Game 3 in NY with Cliff Lee on the mound was another masterpiece to watch and his win assures at least one game back in Texas. He lasts eight and Washington brings in Feliz to close and he ends it solid. The Yankee’s bats are not titanium and their defense didn’t know how to handle the base running. My biggest complaint? The Yankees keep getting away with stalling a game so it draws out for several hours. They do this deliberately to take a pitcher out of his focus and rhythm and the league lets them. Since this column is submitted early I have no idea of the remaining outcomes but if the bullpen can hold, these guys are gonna make a series of it. Editor note: Monday night Texas Rangers’ took an 8-0 victory for a 2-1 lead in the American League championship series.

NHL – Stars

If the Rangers aren’t giving you all the excitement you want, and waiting for the NBA is giving you cobwebs upstairs, you seriously wanna get into some Stars hockey. That is, of course, if you don’t have Dish and can get the games. What a joke. Dallas is playing some top notch hockey and believe me it’s well worth the watch, and Fox and Dish get into a fight. If you can’t get it at home find a neighborhood watering hole and park it for three exciting periods of top drawer hockey. The offense is running TWO top lines and the goal tending gets your blood pumping. The D still has lapses that’ll have you spilling a drink in your lap, but hey, jump up and get another one.

NFL – Cowboys Is there any hope for the Cowboys right now? Yes, I think there is. Why? Well, timing. Two 1-3 teams just met and they were probably the best lower ranking teams you’ve ever run across. One of ‘em had to lose, that simple, but they’re both still good teams. Statistically, since 1990 only 5 of 97 teams that were 1-4 have made the playoffs. Well, why do you think that’s true? Because the vast majority of those teams were just lousy. The five who made it obviously weren’t lousy teams, were they. That’s what both Minnesota and Dallas bring to the table, they’re both not lousy teams. Do I think they have a Herculean task ahead of them? Yeah, and as I said above, unless they minimize the penalties and turnovers, 9 of 11 is virtually impossible. But, this has also been a very strange

year for almost all the other teams so far. In the NFC East I only worry about the Giants and Eagles defenses, and not anything about the Redskins. Those teams also have to play each team in the AFC South so their schedules aren’t rose padded either. I have hope because of who the other teams have to face and that our coaches can help the players minimize the penalties and turnovers.

Week 6 in review How’d my upset predictions do? Not good, only Miami took Green Bay. For all you thinking this has been the weirdest beginning to an NFL season in forever, you’re wrong. Maybe you’re team didn’t fare so well, but for the most part those who were supposed to be doing well are pulling away from the pack. In the AFC the East is where we thought it should be, the North is except Cincy’s a surprise for their troubles, and the South is overall strong but the Texans on top is strange and probably won’t last. The surprise division is the West with the Chiefs playing tough and leading and it’s doubtful the Chargers have the right horses to pull that stagecoach through the brush. In the NFC injuries and weird abound and there isn’t one clear cut division or team of strength. In the North the Bears have no offensive line and are gonna get Cutler killed, the Packers have more injuries than a train wreck, the Vikings are in disarray, and the Lions have no QB. The South wants to be THE division but right now nobody trusts the Falcons or Saints to take it and run. The West has the biggest surprise team in the Rams but they won’t be a Cinderella story until next year. And the East, well, it would take a crystal ball to tell who’s actually gonna come out on top.

NFL Week 7 Bye teams: Lions, Colts, Jets, and Texans. Sunday, Oct 24, noon CST Here’s two that should be played in the dark so’s as not to embarrass the game: Bills (0-5) at Ravens (4-2, home 2-0), and

METRO ANE

MAGAZINE

49ers (1-5, road 0-3) at Panthers (0-5).

One that’s already decided but will be fun because it’s Colt’s second start: Browns (1-5, road 0-3) at Saints (4-2, home 2-1). Worth a beer but no appetizers: Jag’s (3-3, road 1-1) at Chiefs (3-2, home 2-0), Bengals (2-3, road 1-2) at Falcons (4-2, home 2-0), and Redskins (3-3, road 1-1) at Bears (4-2, home 2-1). Two good games so heat up the grill and fill up the cooler: Rams (3-3, road 0-2) at Buc’s (3-2, home 1-2), and Steelers (4-1, road 2-0) at Dolphins (3-2, home 0-2). Rams and Buc’s are young and exciting surprising everyone, and Miami’s defense is coming along, should be a slugfest. Early game of the day with the outcome affecting several teams: Eagles (4-2, road 3-0) at Titans (4-2, home 1-2). Dallas needs Philly to get knocked off. 3:00 games CST Don’t ruin your remote by pausing on this one: Raiders (2-4, road 0-3) at Broncos (2-4, road 1-2). This one’s interesting and worth the attention: Cards (3-2, road 1-2) at Seahawks (3-2, home 2-0). This game will handle the better class of chips and dips. Ok, this one’s the barn burner and why you got that extra refrigerator in the garage turned into a beer cooler: Patriots (4-1, road 1-1) at Chargers (2-4, home 2-0). Yeah, this HAS to be the breakout game for San Diego and there’s plenty of animosity between these two. Look for Norv to attack hard and often and Brady to test deep. 7:30 game CST This game is irrelevant on many levels: Vikings (2-3, road 0-2) at Packers (3-3, home 2-1). Take this time to impress your lady and do some chores around the house, no, dummy, not to make up with her but to free your evening for tomorrow night.

here: Giants (4-2, road 1-1) at Cowboys (1-4, home 0-2). The NFC isn’t a lock, yet, and Dallas can still muddy up the water with a win. A win they can build on, and if a loss you’ll be first on your block to say you saw Jerry’s new toy stadium come crumbling down. You can watch for that, huh?

Upset picks of the week: Cowboys over Giants, and Bengals over Falcons.

Readers Response: Two Dogs: Do you believe it’s true that the top athletes are impervious to pressure as they’re SO narcissistic? Brett Favre played like he didn’t have a worry in the Jets game. Claudia Dallas Claudia: I believe it’s true that you people need to quit sending me emails that I have to dig through a dictionary to figure out what the hell you’re talking about. In MY language I’m guessing you wanna know if they don’t buckle since they’re so self-absorbed because life’s all about them. Well, the important thing here, darlin’, is you have to acknowledge its pressure. Most people don’t feel pressure over something they have nothing to lose. But, Woods never buckled until his marital issues. Top NASCAR racer Gordon never buckled until his marital issues. In life there’s always different kinds of stakes out there that can be raised and just because you perform well in one arena doesn’t mean you’ll perform well in another, huge ego trip or not. TD Mr. Two Dogs: It is with unpresidented anger your media attacks these Cowboys when needed the most. I’m all favor for the press but the team needs all the support it can have now. Have you not made the mistakes? Let’s not call the names or for firings.

Mr. Rajole:

I think you mean unprecedented there big boy, and believe me, it’s precedented all over the place. Although some do it, it’s generally not the role of the press to act as cheerleaders for a team, besides I look horrible in a skirt. And the question is not have I made mistakes, it’s what causes people to not learn from them and to correct them. And the only firing I’ve called for is the GM’s, but since he’s also the owner that’s out. TD Two Dogs: Why won’t Jerry Jones fire Wade Phillips? His expectations that the players will all act like professionals and get the job done without his being a disciplinarian is absurd. He’s cost us the season. Saundra Dallas Saundra: What do you think is the more effective way to correct mistakes, ordering them not to do it or repetition of the proper function? Ultimately it is the coaches job to ensure the players arrive prepared to play, and they had NFL referee’s in training camp working with the players, but there’s something else going on here. My question is not that they’re happening but why they’re happening with so many players? Also, Jones hired almost all of Phillips staff, he’s responsible for the drafts and the majority of trades, and the players all know he holds the power over them not Phillips. Yeah, Wade’s gonna be the scapegoat, but just who’s JJ gonna replace him with? And who’s available? You think Cowher would work without authority? Jimmy Johnson’s had enough. Dungy’s had enough. You want Gruden? Herm Edwards? Or promote up Garrett? If Jones were to fire Wade right now that would cost us the season and more. TD Pat “Two Dogs” Snow twodogs@anemagazine.com

Horror films have a long tradition of ludicrous titles leaving little to imagination and describing exactly what to expect from the film. ‘Zombie Strippers’, ‘Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes’ and now ‘Big Tits Zombie’, released on DVD this month is a Japanese horror in the tradition of grind house, sexploitation films.

clearly been made on a shoe-string budget. The film has few locations with much of the action taking place inside the strip-club’s dressing room, basement and what looks like an abandoned restaurant is used during the final showdown. ‘Big Tits Zombie’ is very much in a similar vein to films from the world

as many scenes of cheap gore and nudity with minimal attention paid to the story and acting. With that in mind there is very little point in criticising the acting ability of anyone involved or picking holes in the plot, particularly when the cast is made up of Japanese porn stars and models.

The DVD release is being marketed as being in 3-D but don’t be mislead, James Cameron has nothing to fear. The majority of the film is in standard 2-D with a total of 7 scenes in 3-D requiring red and blue anaglyph glasses. Before each 3-D sequence an image of the glasses appears in the top left corner of the screen with a 5 second countdown to give you time to put on your glasses. Some of the scenes last no more than 30 seconds while others run for several minutes. As well as the zombie killing, there are scenes of nudity and female sumo wrestling, all in 3-D.

Written and directed by Takao Nakano, whose previous credits include ‘Sexual Parasite: Killer Pussy’, ‘Sumo Vixens’ and the ‘ExorSister’ movies. ‘Big Tits Zombie’ is based on Rei Mikamoto’s infamous manga ‘Kyonyu Dragon’. When exotic dancer Lena Jodo returns to Japan she finds herself a temporary job dancing at a run-down strip-club in a deserted suburban town. One afternoon at the club Lena and her fellow strippers, Ginko, Maria, Nene and Dana discover a hidden door in their dressing room leading to the club’s basement. There, they unearth a mysterious well and a rare copy of the Book of the Dead.

The main problem with the anaglyph glasses is that it takes a while for the eyes to adjust to the 3-D image so when the sequence lasts less than a minute it does not really work so well. However, if the whole film had been in 3-D it would have been an even tougher watch.

Reading aloud from the tome, they inadvertently summon the dead back to life and soon Japan is overrun by rampaging, flesheating zombies. Opening with a quote from Sergio Leone and with numerous references to Quentin Tarantino from music cues to the inclusion of Lena’s skimpy outfit obviously modelled on Uma Thurman’s iconic yellow jumpsuit from ‘Kill Bill’, the film makes no attempt to hide its influences or mask the fact that it has

zombie helmets rather than directly applied prosthetics. As zombies are hacked up by the chainsaw and samurai sword wielding strippers the CGI enhanced blood splatter sprays across the screen. The gore is gratuitous in the extreme and ranges from the usual scenes of zombies eating the guts of screaming victims to a novel way of serving human sushi from a dismembered woman’s body. The film’s most startling scene features a zombie with a flame throwing, fire breathing vagina.

of Tromaville, films such as ‘The Toxic Avenger’, ‘Rabid Grannies’ and ‘Class Of Nuke ‘Em High’. As is the case with Tromaville it seems that the whole film is based around a concept for the films title with the main focus being on adding in

Despite its mercifully short running time of 73 minutes the film starts slowly and only really picks up any pace towards the final 20 minutes. The majority of the zombie makeup is pretty poor with a number of them wearing what look like

The film will no doubt generate interest from its title alone as well as curiosity from fans of the original manga. The film doesn’t pretend to be anything more than a trashy, pop-culture referencing genre piece. It is fun in places with “so bad its good” cult potential but the 3-D proves to be a pointless gimmick. ‘Big Tits Zombie 3D is available now on DVD’.

That is an incredibly long time in the world of film, and yet nothing can dilute how I feel about the film: it remains one of the most iconic musicals ever committed to film, and its longevity, not only as a movie favourite, but in its many on-stage versions is testament to its genius. And now, the film is set to be loved again as it is re-released this week for the first time on Blu-ray. Heralded perfectly as a B-movie sci-fi/ horror parody, resplendent with generic cliches and quirks, a 1950s nostalgia piece seen through a skewed filter, and as a cutting satire of mainstream America’s reaction to the perceived depravities of the sexual revolution, ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ is still a wonderfully appropriate commentary on what is acceptable and on the beautiful oddities that can exist in the culture of the boundaries. In a funny twist, and thanks to the cult-appeal that has seen Rocky Horror play almost relentlessly every week in colourful midnight screenings, the film experience has become far bigger than the film itself, embracing the way the film celebrates the grubby underbelly of society by inviting the usually straight-laced audience members to dress as the film’s characters and actively participate in the screening. Such screenings are usually a wonder to behold, and there is something incred-

Time Warp’ and the beautifully theatrical ‘Sweet Transvestite’. Every song is an experience to behold, and truth be told it is they that are the major driving force behind the film, as comprehensible plot-lines become a decidedly secondary concern to the musical set-pieces. The somewhat flimsy plot, centred around the allegorical sexual awakening of all-American couple Brad and Janet is merely a vehicle for the iconic songs, but who cares, really? The overall effect is just wonderful, and the enduring strength of the film is definitely down to its quality as much as the way it opens up the possibility of being different, and celebrating that otherness in so raunchy a fashion. Tim Curry is mesmorising as Dr Frank N Furter,

stealing the show in a never-to-be-repeated career high-point, but both Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick are excellent as his naive prey. I have to say, Curry’s Frank N Furter was one of my first cinematic crushes: I didn’t necessarily want to have sex with him, but I was so captivated by his charm, so enslaved to his androgynous

lasciviousness and so wholly entranced by the way he flirts with the camera and his fellow actors that I knew I wouldn’t very quickly be able to shake the image of this deviant burlesque magician out of my head. He continues to hold that power, and I strongly believe that is a great shame of the disposable nature of acting talents that Curry has not appeared in more films in the 35 years since he

visit the original for the first time, and what they will find is a grand occasion of a film that has stood the test of time and which grows considerably with every subsequent viewing. Quality Beautiful. Thankfully, the transfer is a fitting tribute to the 35th anniversary: transferred from the original negatives and not from any of the later DVD releases this high-definition version is a treat, devoid of any unnecessary digital manipulation and with the natural grain intact. That may seem like an odd thing to say in a celebration of the success of a high-def transfer, but the faithfulness shown to the film’s grain also shows an integrity and a desire to retain the filmic quality of the original, which is important here because sometimes age means vintage. Had Fox stripped the film back, lathered on some DNR and edge enhancement in an effort to give the film a new sparkle, the effect would have been far less rich, and a good deal of charm would inevitably have disappeared along with the image’s character and imperfections. Overall, the transfer is exceptional: the richness of colour and black levels are beautiful throughout,contrast is perfect, and the sound is simply fantastic. Fox

have added two extra surround channels, adding a distinct richness to the non-musical sequences, but it is in the song sequences that the sound transfer really shines, with each imparted with the kind of quality you’d expect from an album Master tape of the highest quality. Extras There’s a lot here in terms of extra enjoyment, and Fox have definitely gone all out to offer a package that meets the heady expectations of fans of the film, especially on the auspicious occasion of its 35th birthday. Highlights include the Rocky-Oke sing-along section
