Okay, in the recent discussion about John Bone's exploits with the authorities in Thailand held in the no-holds-barred Monkey Cage, a major offshoot of the topic concerned some of the practices by Mike South that have shown the side of his personality that people don't like to talk about. As a member of the forum, Mike has been given the chance to deny allegations and as always, he has crawled back under his rock, hurling nonsensical insults from his bully pulpit website in an attempt to muddy the waters. The following appears to be factual information regarding his temper tantrums and behavior that strikes me as being pretty low even by porn standards, some of it looking more dangerous to those in the industry than anything coming out of Washington DC. Here's a few of the questions and claims that Mike has run away from in a thread dedicated to the guy rather than buried under a thread that isn't related:

1) Did you or did you not used to steal Den's reviews without his permission and without crediting him as the original writer, posting them as your own on your website, and sell the screeners you received? On a related note, for all his claims of "telling it like it is", Mike showed a willingness to remove reviews unfavorable to some in porn after railing how bad a title was; limiting his credibility to those who might have relied on them. Can anyone trust his reviews if he uses them to curry favor, assuming of course that he doesn't still simply steal them from others in the first place as he was said to do in the past?

2) Did you not brag about all the good you did in publicizing the Atomic Punk affair, ultimately exposing the personal information of hundreds of performers (including SS#'s) to scores of people publicly rather than handle it quietly in the then-dead thread on a relatively obscure forum? You were blathering on and on about how you deserved the Sturman Award for your efforts, even though your publicity helped spread the information like wildfire to stalkers everywhere...

3) Did you or did you not complain repeatedly about X-Fanz not putting a "star" next to your name, eventually pissing all over the place because they didn't recognize your self-deluded greatness and then follow up by not removing your name from the posts you had already made ("Do I need to start flaming people to get this account deleted?")? Right after that, you started claiming the company owner was pushing the .XXX matter down everyone's throats, suggesting this based on nothing of substance (ie: that evidence you never seemed to mind having prior to Bone's dilemma). If that wasn't a case of revenge...

4) As far as the Jessica matter; were you or were you not the one that "didn't have the time" to debate the matter when the issue was raised that under current 2257 law, there really isn't a means by which companies can amend their records? By "outing" her, didn't you endanger her, every company she had worked for, and all those associating with her to federal scrutiny; said scrutiny amazingly finding its way to Wicked Pictures soon after you went on your half baked crusade? Keeping in mind her stable employment as a contract performer for years, posing no additional "threat" to anyone even if your original guesses were correct, why the need to draw attention to possible violations? (From published accounts, Wicked passed the record keeping investigation by the FBI though, also in contradiction to your initial claims that they did not have her information correct on file, IIRC.) I still thought it was amusing that after the company finally replied to you, you shut up about the whole matter like a spent bitch...

5) Do you or do you not think it's fair play to insinuate other directors are engaged in filming kiddie porn in a thinly disguised effort to attack them as in your tirade against director John Bone? Bone has been tentatively accused by Thai authorities of owning/operating a website with links to porn sites. Mike, providing no evidence to the contrary whatsoever, thought it was okay to further advance the possibility even going so far as to say things like: "Rumors have been rampant that T Bone is shooting underage performers. If you have any of his product on your shelves you might consider your options here, there is no scam that John Bone wouldn't pull." and "I have had some pretty good indications that he is shooting underage performers, I have more that I have yet to go through but as of now he is only being accused of it by others, lots of others." Granted, Bone may not be popular but if Mike wasn't just engaging in another round of making up "sources" as some think he does all the time, he'd be listing them or providing something substantial that Bone could address.

6) It's also reported that Mike likes to shit talk the industry to new performers, just so long as he gets to shoot them himself. The general idea that he's better than everyone else in the industry seems to be indicative of his mindset, a mindset that apparently doesn't have an issue with screwing people over to get his way. While that might be okay with some in Porn Valley, others might find it the opposite of the persona he tries to cultivate when he wants something from you (the infamous claims that he was someone important at this year's AEE and better not be made to wait in lines with the riff raff was a classic example of his holier than thou self importance; one that a number of people were laughing at during the show with him in earshot).

7) His contempt for the so-called "fanboys" of porn says it all. Say what you will about those online and standing in lines to meet their industry favorites but those are the people that pay the bills of those in the industry. For someone so unconcerned about all of us nameless consumers, he sure spends a lot of time on various forums or commenting about us (personally, I appreciate his ill-informed, foolish hillbilly comments since they do send traffic reading my reviews on www.dvdtalk.com and elsewhere). I wasn't certain he could show more contempt for the consumer than the crappy porn he shoots but you can't blame the guy for trying his best to look like a fricking jerk to the masses.

In any case, I appreciate that he ran away with his tail between his legs after some of his recent past was brought up in the other thread. It was probably difficult for his repeated pleas for sympathy over his medical problems to deal with how much of a self important, some say delusional, jerk he was portraying when faced with very real questions regarding his behavior towards those in the industry. I don't care much about his poor grammar or often illiterate ramblings as Bone did on his blog any more than I care his justifications for hiring private detectives to investigate his enemies (he'd have fit right in at the witch trials in Salem or in the McCarthy hearings back in the 50's) but I thought it was a good idea that someone mentions it from time to time (the industry has a short attention span). Here's a couple of responses to those that care:

Quote:

Has he really done all that shit you talked about...he always seemed like an insider with the scoup...




He told me to my face about stealing the reviews and selling the unseen screeners, I watched him fall apart on the X-Fanz forums over the lack of a "star" by his name (http://xfanz.com), debated the Drake matter via email with him as well as spoke to the other side of the matter, and watched the Atomic Punk matter explode thanks in large part to his exploits. The other stuff is found on the net, often at his own website though he can re-write history there, so check it out for yourself.

Quote:

the guys on medication from his _____, why don't you let up on him?




Mike prides himself on having scoops, telling it like it is, and projecting his worldview as though it were the only one. That leaves him open to critical comment and while I appreciate that he recently admitted to sitting on stories or treating some with kid gloves in such a manner that he couldn't look himself in the mirror, his overall tone is one of a child seeking approval; no matter what he openly suggests.

Quote:

...he sure told you off, why do you reviewers think you know so much about everything...




While I think this might have been from Mike himself, I don't think anyone has claimed to know it all (except maybe Mike himself); especially some of the more prolific reviewers online (several of us laugh at the suggestion though). It's telling though that the stance of "attack the messenger" is the first response from the guy and his handful of supporters. Should a company care if their screeners are being sold in competition with themselves if the guy isn't at least reviewing them? Is it right to steal someone else's reviews at brush it off like a misunderstanding to those who don't pay attention? Should a director be actively engaged in the dissemination of performer's private information or promote those that are? You decide...

Quote:

Damn youre an asshole...




I might be at times and I don't suggest otherwise. I also don't think I'm above scrutiny or someone particularly important. The review website I write for is one of the most popular around and I appreciate that I've helped steer people to better porn over the years but ultimately none of this has been about me except for Mike dodging valid questions posed of him on a repeated basis. While I don't really expect he'll respond (he's probably smarter than to go into a fight outmatched, much like when Lockwood tossed a drink in his face and he sat back down to steam over it), it's fair to present the facts and allegations in an open forum since that's what he does all the time.

Mike

Mike's a lot slower and he picked up on it already. Gene picked it up and I've discussed some of the issues raised with others in the industry so it's having some impact (despite what Mikey tries to project, there are people that want to know more details). Mike has responded here and on his website from what I'm told; still providing no substance but then that's kind of expected by now. I wonder if he has figured out that by attacking me instead of simply addressing the questions, he pretty much proves what has been said about him...

Which aspect of Beck; the loose cannon, the brazen falsehoods or half truths, or the lack of social graces when questioned?

bumped to make it easy for Mikey to find the questions he claims to now want to answer...

While we still wait for Mikey to answer the questions, I've been shown a few new tidbits of what a stellar guy he is:

1) He posts a pretty lame account of Steve Huff's suicide, essentially making it look like Sophia Rossi is a culpable party (guy scheduled her for a show in Florida, apparently not living up to his end of the deal so she bailed; the show flopped and he offed himself). Thankfully, Gene Ross posted a more credible version of the events and most thinking people don't believe Mikey any more than their hated Republican of choice.

Next up, it was pointed out to me that Mikey was posting more BS. Here goes:
Quote:

JapChick Writes:
Ok so who is this Houston Don loser? Isn't he the guy I met with you when we were in Vegas a few years ago? He was short, chubby, geeky, wore glasses and I commented that he was a future stalker of america? Hope you are feeling better!

Ya that'd be him, not a real bright fellow, and Im gonna tell him the same thing I told T Bone if you really expect a response from me, ask me, not through a third party, if you cant figure out my email you are way to fucking stupid for me to help...and he prolly is."




Well, at least neither of them knows WTF I look like so they can keep stalking me as far as I'm concerned. But if they want to promote that I'm short, wear glasses, etc, etc; by all means keep up the good work. In Mike's favor, I believe this broad is one of the few people who contribute to his website that are not completely fictional (though it may be another of his personalities that he's used longer).

For those who buy into Mikey's claims that asking him is the only way to go. I again ask; what does Mikey have to hide? Keep in mind that I've emailed with him back and forth over the years and he tends to drop the responses well before addressing the meat of the questions, including on most of the listed topics. Further, if he's such a stand up guy with those legendary balls of his, he should have the courage of his convictions and answer the questions instead of continually dodging them in public.

The gauntlet was tossed and Mikey has scurried under his rock yet again rather than answer. Can ANYONE out there tell me they believe his responses as sounding reasonable (changing with the tides; like the infamous: "technically whats posted here is xpts not mine...so technically I aint gonna cut and paste it..."). You have to give him credit for coming up with the lamest lines in porn of late. He was outmatched on ADT and now gets totally schooled on XPT; fading away until the heat dies down I suppose (what a simp!).

Well, he has started posting again to his own website and Luke's comments section now that the heat died down. He's still a pussy to dodge the questions presented (let's face it, in the porn industry, the vast majority hate those considered dodgers...albeit cum dodgers in most cases) and he's still a prick for all those people he fucked over (on a scale that Luke on his best day couldn't approach, hence the spin Luke has put on my questions) but even a wacko like him can't flunk out of porn.
