10/10/18Funny story online about censorship of girls in swimwear here.
I posted a new blog today about some crazy screw-ups I've executed over the years named "What The Fuck Was I Thinking?"
The TrueTeenBabes Video Archive is running some great specials in September. All the TrueTeenBabes DVD Videos in .MP4 format (no disc) for only $19.95 or the first 90 TeenGlamourGirls videos (720p) for only $19.95 or the last 89 TeenGlamourGirls videos (720p) for only $19.95. All those special deals are available here.
I'm still missing the following three models from the TrueTeenBabes Photo Archive. #10081 Holly Jones, #10096 Jennea Aldigo and #10127 Alexandra Bostimonti.
If you had been a subscriber when those girls originally posted please get in touch with me. The first Zip files for each would be would be 10081001.zip, 10096001.zip and 10127001.zip. The first photo of them ever posted would be 10081001001.jpg. 10096001001.jpg and 10127001001.jpg.
I received a few emails recently asking how I could be misisng those models. It appears to have happened in one of two break-ins we've had over the years.
In 2009 the 33 year old boyfriend of TrueBabes model Kelsie Lee broke into the Florida studio, which also held a small office we did retouching in, and stole all sorts of stuff including hard drives. At the time it was smaller 250GB drives if I recall correctly. He apparently was looking for her materials because didn't want her on TrueBabes, but took what he could grab. Law enforcement down there made the case, but only got 1 drive back. He swore he only took one, but we know it was more. Ironically, she was introduced to us by TrueTeenBabes / TrueBabes model Joleine, and later that same year Joleine's then boyfriend tried the same shit, but I was in that back office and police got there fast so he got away with nothing.
In this photo of me and Heather in the office you can see three external drives, with white labels on their cases, on top of the computer to her left. Those three are what he took, but we only got one back.
When Joleine's boyfriend broke into the studio he used that concrete block in the lower left of this photo to smash the glass front door.
Considering the dates those three models had been on the site it is most likely that their materials had been on one of those hard drives.
If they happen to be on the drive that was returned the materials would have later (about 2010) been moved to 1TB or 2TB drives I was using as back-up at the time. In 2012 we suffered another break-in. This time the guy took cameras and a couple of hard drives. That drive was never recovered and may have contained those materials.
Overall, shit just happens.
I received a few emails over the summer about new models or new projects.
Officially, I think the market for nude models 18+ is out of my range these days. Most fans of a TrueBabes style site that are willing to pay for a subscription more likely would do so on a site that is larger. I have older 118 models there, and even if I could locate and shoot one or two new girls each month, I just can't be competive with sites that already have hundreds of models. We must remember that it never got very big even when it had built in fans coming over from TrueTeenBabes. We must also remember that here in Colorado I wasn't able to find enough tattoo free models when we tried back in 2015.
I think the market for non-nude models -18 is a totally different thing. The truth is that the market is starved for real teens (not 18-19 year olds posted as age 16). If somebody like Jaclynn or Libby came along right now a really cool site could be made, in particular with the changes in content delivery, streaming technology and mobile applications that have taken place in the past 5 years.
The issue, as I've been discussing over the past four years here and here and here, is that peer pressure, social media fears, and anonymous social justice warriors make it very hard for girls and parents to commit to any sort of ongoing project or website. I do get emails or online applications now and then but the main question is always about keeping people that my critize the girl or family from seeing it.
I do have some other things, unrelated to shooting photos and videos of models, in the works. I'm slowly looking into office space back down in the Littleton area, and even spent last week talking to web developers, PHP programmers, and other website tech type people.
Half way through the year and heading into a long vacation period. Some celebrating July 4th early, some next weekend, and maybe some all week?
After posting The Custom Conumdrum blog earlier this month several people emailed asking about the line "In early April I was involved in an hour long discussion with a federal law enforcement official about an investigation going on back east and the topic of customs (that he called "private shoots") came up" and wanting to know what site is being invistigated. Please read the sentence again slowly and understand I didn't say it was a website.
This was a simple subpoena request for copies of documents (receipts, emails) as has happened a few times previous. It turned into a discussion because, like those writing, I was curious as fuck about it and volunteered to drive down to Littleton (Denver area), rather then just fax or mail them. The investigation was not explained to me in detail so anything I say would just be speculation. I certainly wouldn't be giving out the names discussed.
I continue to look for the ZIP files for TrueTeenBabes models 10081, 10096 and 10127. Check the news from June 13th below for details if you may be able to help.
Day after day more stories of young women, or their mothers, being attacked online for dressing or acting in an interesting, showy or daring manner. Example for the U.K. here.
And I continue to get asked why I don't start working with teen models again... because there are very few teen model / parent pairs willing to be attacked day after days by online idiots. It is much worse now than when I wrote The Four Fs exactly four years ago. So much worse.
Working on a new blog/story to post next month so make sure you are on the TrueTeenBabes Mailing List to get notified.
The photo archive at TrueTeenBabes.net has been updated to the new mobile friendly style and the missing models we had available have been reposted there.
During the model reposting on the TrueTeenBabes Photo Archive we discovered that some CDs used for archiving back around 2004-2006 had gone bad and are unreadable. This means we are not able to post 3 models:
#10081 Holly Jones
#10096 Jennea Aldigo
#10127 Alexandra Bostimonti
If you had been a subscriber when those girls originally posted please get in touch with me.
The first Zip files for each would be would be 10081001.zip, 10096001.zip and 10127001.zip.
The first photo of them ever posted would be 10081001001.jpg. 10096001001.jpg and 10127001001.jpg.
The social justice attacks on persons being beautiful, physically attractive (sexy), or more talented have continued over the past few months.
Girl isn't able to do the tumbling for the cheerleading team so mother complains. School decides everybody that wants to be can now be an official cheerleader.
That story had a good follow-up a few days later titled Rewarding Failure Has Become Epidemic.
Its gets better... err, I mean worse. High school decides that girls wearing dresses that expose ribs below the collar bone, or cleavage, will not be allowed to attend prom unless they agree to wear a "Modesty Poncho".
We can't forget last year when this dress was deemed to short and sexual for prom at a different high school.
And, just last month they came for the swimwear in the Miss America Pageant.
Good opinion piece about that here.
There are no teen model websites based in the USA shooting new models. There was as many as 30-40 at one time when we combined multi-model and solo-model
Large, well financed, adult websites located right in California now have issues finding models in their niche of slim, natural, free of tattoos. I'm told only druggie, tattoo infested, sluts apply these days so they buy all their materials from eastern Europe.
Another adult site I know, that worked with models 18-19, told me by email he was closing at the end of the summer when he runs out of content. He was online and active since 2001 but can no longer find 18 or 19 year olds for his fairly tame website.
I think I'm getting sick thinking about this stuff. Somebody - anybody really - please send me some Neisson XO 45 because I need both alcohol and a sugar high at the same time!
A new blog about the potential evils and missed profits of custom photo shoots titled The Custom Conundrum has been posted.
Another 12 of the missing models from the early years of TrueTeenBabes have been posted over on the TrueTeenBabes Photo Archive. More to come around June 10th.
The video archive at TrueTeenBabes.tv was updated a few days back with a new easy to navigate theme that is very friendly for teen model fans that use small screen or mobile devices. The plan is to also install that same layout and theme on the photo archive at TrueTeenBabes.net around June 10th.
During our project to post all the missing models back up on the TrueTeenBabes Photo Archive we discovered that some CDs used for archiving back around 2004-2006 had gone bad and are unreadable. This means we are not able to post 3 models: #10081 Holly Jones, #10096 Jennea Aldigo and #10127 Alexandra Bostimonti. If you happen to have been a subscriber when those girls had been part of the members area please get in touch with me. If you can search your hard drives or back-up drives, the first Zip files for each would be would be 10081001.zip, 10096001.zip and 10127001.zip or the first photo of them ever posted would be 10081001001.jpg. 10096001001.jpg and 10127001001.jpg. Thanks!
Seeing some of those early models brings back memories from the early days of TrueTeenBabes. I've got a few stories to tell from back then and I hope to have a couple of them posted over the summer months.
