Our pal Xtinal got to tour the Kink.com armory and spotted an “upgraded” Johnny 5. Times must be tough, even for escaped sentient Nova robots. We know he can feel love, but can he feel… you know… pleasure?
BTW, have you seen the El Debarge video for “Who’s Johnny”? Total disappointment. They clearly didn’t have the budget to hire the robot or Steve Guttenberg, so they just put a cardboard cutout of Steve and a lame puppet robot arm into a few shots. The song still holds up and they did manage to cast the ultra-cute Ally Sheedy, though:
San Francisco’s finest pizza and porn, together at last. Kind of like a frat party. So far, the Kink crew has hit up the Knockout and, allegedly, the Kilowatt. Where will they be next? Smart money’s on Benders.
(Thanks to, ummm, Robert for the tip–yeah, that’s the ticket)
Isn’t there a better way to get a peak inside the Kink.com armory? I realize that a certain Belle & Sebastian video may have suggested that this is the way to go, but do you really want to end up as the office piece of fluff?
As we found out earlier this week, the free friday tours of the Kink.com Armory are booked up until the fall so it’s going to be a while until we’ll get see all the glorious historical significance inside. Luckily for you, tonight our favorite DSLR-slinger from the Tens somehow got some kind of private tour with his “company”, which I can only assume is a custom power-tool supplier.
Jealous? I am. When I tried to flex my dubious, “Uhh, is there a press guest list? I kinda sorta write for a local blog” card, it fell on deaf ears at the Armory. But who could blame them? They don’t really need the press and we are but a humble blog that has recently been rewarded for pictures of public shitting. On the other hand, a significant portion of our traffic comes from dudes googling Sasha Grey, so maybe it would be good for business?
Well, if you change your mind, Kink.com, you know where to find us.
Update: Brizz posted more pics, including Johnny Five with some, umm, upgrades, on Uptown Almanac.
