The FSC spent most of Tuesday pimping their entry into testing very hard. Theey had a meeting that had a handful of people, mostly the usual suspects, Diane Duke, Joanne Cachepero, Ernest Greene, Nina Hartley and Mark Kernes. I couldn’t help while listening to their pitch but think of the movie “Blaze” where Earl Long ( The Paul Newman Character) refers to his legislature as “The finest bunch of yes men ever assembled.” That sums up the FSC in one sentence.
They Pimped Peter Ackworth from Kink who supposedly designed the database and Doctor Maio (pronounced Meow) who pimped their testing. They dodged questions from kevin at Type Nine and from Shy Love, using the line, “we are working on it but what we are doing is top secret”…They said the same thing about what they did with pornwikileaks and as it turned out it was NOTHING.
I have also come to the realization that Diane Duke isn’t such a nice person as people think, she lies, she is a publicity whore, she is power hungry, and she is shameless. OK these are all things you would probably want in an Executive Director, I mean it works for Michael Weinstein right? Problem is Diane lies to us and she will trample anyone in this business to take credit for work she didn’t do….Case in point…she told the LA Times tha she and the FSC took down pornwikileaks.
But I digress. What struck me was that she claims the database contains only performers names and availability to work, she said that not even the FSC will know if you tested positive or for what or if you just quit the biz quietly. She went on to explain that any quarantine would be handled by the FSC and would only involve first and second generation exposures.
Typical FSC logic right there….but then they never were very good at math or logic….If they don’t know you tested positive how would they know whom you worked with? Truth is that database is worthless, the only thing it does is well…nothing….Diane even emphasized that performers should look at each others tests. So what good is the database then?
Or as one attendee told me That APISS database is going to do for testing what APAP did for Piracy….not a fucking thing.
Couldn’t have said it better myself.
