Who Sends More Press Releases--Russell Simmons or a Porn Star?

Who Sends More Press Releases--Russell Simmons or a Porn Star?

I generally get inundated with emails from all varieties of show biz types, all regularly hawking their wares, their firstborn, their mood swings, and their genital jewelry, in eternal hopes of a mention.

But two figures rise way above the pack in the sheer volune of promo materials they put out there: Russell Simmons and gay porn icon Michael Lucas, oddly enough. Simmons' people send a steady stream of items about his politics, his good works, and why he sells clothes at WalMart. If I don't get an item about Simmons in 10 whole minutes, I start to call the police--but then an email comes in and I settle down into complacence again.

Similarly, Lucas will continually forward his views, his videos that got yanked off YouTube--or the ones that didn't--and even the most obscure little press mentions. Most poignantly, he recently sent out a CNN ireport on which, if you clicked on photo number four, it showed a shutterd porn video store which had Lucas's face in the window. Top that, Russell Simmons!

So who would YOU rather hear from--the hiphop mogul or the dick dude?
