Short Takes: AMG Revamps Sites…and More

Athletic Model Guild (AMG) has announced the relaunch of the company’s two membership sites, AthleticModelGuild.com and AMGBrasil.com. The new sites will be updated multiple times weekly and include thousands of images, hundreds of video scenes (complete with HD and full-screen capabilities) and historical memorabilia from the studio’s past, including Bob Mizer’s magazine, Physique Pictorial. “The brand-new interface will allow us to showcase our 65 years of historical images and movies with the most up-to-date technology possible,” says AMG president Dennis Bell. “In addition to our hard-core Brazilian line, AMG Classics has a vintage library of 3,000 films, 2,500 videos and about a million gallery images.” That’s a lot of porn! The studio also provides access to a video-on-demand page; a blog; the AMG Web store; a podcast (downloadable in the iTunes store); and an AMG Twitter. “We realize that technology is constantly in flux, and we are ready to adapt to the ever-changing atmosphere of the Web,” Bell adds. “No one can say AMG is a relic of the past. AMG is a studio of the future.”…Porn star Kurt Wild has taken to his blog to let fans know that he has amicably parted ways with AngelSlutGarden.com and ASG Entertainment, which had recently signed him to star in and direct porn. “For me to continue as a team with ASG, in my opinion, would not help me with fulfilling my dreams as a model and director,” Wild says, “because I have always done better as a soloist. I am very much a people person, but when it comes to goals and working, I tend to be a real perfectionist.” The married father of three (anyone know whether his wife has popped out the fourth yet?) who made a splash on The Tyra Banks Show goes on to say that he will remain friends with company owners Angel Skye and Brad Star but will focus on building his own ClubKurtWild site. Meanwhile, the AngelSlutGarden site is down amid rumors that Skye has quit the business and that he and Star are no longer a couple. We smell some gay porn drama!…Is porn star Chad Manning (below) in or out? No, not of the closet—the porn biz! After announcing on his blog that he was retiring from the wonderful world of porn, the former Titan Media exclusive changed his mind and decided to stay—all on the same day. In an updated statement, Manning says, “I had some personal issues that led me to make a rash decision and things got out of hand.” It seems that working with director Steve Cruz on his new Green Door flick for Mustang had something to do with his choice. “I’m shooting for Steve Cruz right now and he has helped me realize that all porn isn’t bad! I’ve had an amazing time and I wouldn’t give it up for anything.” Okay, now we know about his career, but what about Manning’s supposed breakup with fellow screen stud Damian Rios?
