Beauty, Skin, Depth, Blahblahblah.
Late yesterday afternoon, we learned of some sad news: The video we wrote about on Monday, featuring some Skinimax-tastic late-night goings-on at an exclusive Beautiful Room party at the Pawn Gallery, had been taken off YouTube. And after it had jumped from a couple hundred views to more than a thousand in the course of a day.
Seems one of those viewers alerted the TBR folk of its existence. After all, with a heavily interactive Web site like TBR's, there's no reason to think that any of them are too beautiful to know their way around the Interweb.
According to the gallery owners, the gentleman featured prominently in the video (but not as prominently as those pixelated breasteses) actually went down to the Pawn Gallery to ask the owners to take it down. An admirable display of beautiful balls, if you ask me. Unfair Park was told this gentleman offered them money, but the gallery owners' morals got the best of them, and they took it down free of charge. As one Pawn Gallery owner told me, "Overall, it was a bad karma thing to do on my part, but what they do is so vapid and evil it goes against every fibre of my being. So I am left oddly remorseless."
Wow. It's almost like those guys have, like, a soul. Somebody remind me to sit down with them sometime soon for an interview. I'd love to know what that's like. --Andrea Grimes
