Really....? Way to be innovative with the softcore porn.

This is softcore porn? No wonder I never got into it. Looks like a fashion runway idea.

J.O.B said...

the female figure is beautiful. to associate this with soft core porn is kinda ignorant. innovation like art is in the eye of the beholder.

Cherri said...

agreed. its not like American Apparel and a thousand other clothing companies haven't used this angle of half naked chicks (without faces) already? Do something new. You guys have done awesome in creating a name for yourself, but its frustratingly disappointing to see you as representatives of jax and see this.

Cherri said...

and yes the female body is extremely beautiful.. but that doesn't make it all that awesome to use it to market your product. You're using it not to glorify it, or appreciate it, but to sell a bag.

WHO CHANGED THE PIC? What is this, censorship?

David on September 13, 2009 at 1:56 PM said...

I thought you did? i wouldn't. I say so long as it doesn't hurt anyone - it's cool. I do feel like it's ok to merge art with product but some may not see it as art.

tom p. on September 13, 2009 at 1:56 PM said...

i changed the pic. a few of my girl friends had a problem with it. when it comes to girls and emotions i stop asking questions long ago. i'm not saying jaxscene isn't going to be truthful and edgy. i still put out your message. this is also a feeder to jaxreader i don't won't little kids seeing something not parent approve. you guys have fun with it put it everywhere. if you don't think it's a big deal go put it on entertaining u's blog and see if you have a job tomorrow.

J.O.B said...

Cherri,

For an Anarchist with so many Personal Views, We were bound to strike a nerve on way or another but, Hey! Thanks for the SUPPORT.

David on September 13, 2009 at 2:08 PM said...

lol @ "when it comes to girls and emotions i stop asking questions long ago"

point taken

J.O.B said...

Tom it's all good. If it were in a gallery, it would be Art. This one picture caused So much Commotion and we haven't even done the Male Hunk Spread. On a Positive Note, We've managed to generate over hundreds and hundreds of views and site traffic. Good for us, Bad for Emotions.

Cherri said...

support does not mean unquestioning acceptance.

tom p. on September 13, 2009 at 2:20 PM said...

Male hunk, yummmmmmmmmmy!!!!!!

Burro Bags on September 13, 2009 at 3:56 PM said...

Now accepting applications for the 2010 bike hunk calendar...

jackdiablo on September 13, 2009 at 3:59 PM said...

...and the last thing I have to say on the matter is AmAppy has a full page back cover ad on every REAX I've ever seen, and they're way sleazy (not that I'm complaining).

and they show faces

Cherri said...

While I'm not the only one who had problems w/ it (only the one who put my name to it),

in my opinion, I wouldn't have been as offended if there had been a face. With a face, at least theres an identity.

tom p. on September 13, 2009 at 4:13 PM said...

JaxScene isn't REAX.............um....um...well.

I don't know man. I don't have this answer.

J.O.B said...

man i cant wait for the hunk calendar. on another tip, i don't mind elaborating but i will never give a fuck about acceptance. haters can go to their 9 - 5 job and be punk on the weekend.

I think that people should chill out because it's just an alternative side to advertising. Burro is awesome an not sexist by any means.
So some down ass bitch agreed to pose for them.
The female body is gorgeous and obviously with over 900 hits since yesterday afternoon, an awesome way of advertising.

David on September 13, 2009 at 8:43 PM said...

Burro, currently running 6 miles a week (no joke) so I will be ready and hunky soon. ;)

It's true and these are opinions. And they seem very fair. but in the top spirit of jaxscene; embracing everyone, it is conscience for us to listen to a good amount of people who didn't like it.

David on September 13, 2009 at 8:43 PM said...

and snap, we got our first 20 comments

J.O.B., one of the things that separates adult kindergartners from grown-ass folks is the ability to process criticism and engage in discourse without coming off as a sheltered, insecure sac with his D in a perpetual knot.

Anyone over the age of 18 who's still farting out BS about "weekend punks" and "fuck acceptance" needs serious lessons in how the real world operates.

PS: The ad itself is run-of-the-mill/nothing new and the chick looks like trash. Cool bags tho.

ZZZzzZZZZzzzZZZZzz

homework....Jean Kilbourne, Killing Us Softly. women and advertising.

Joshtank on September 16, 2009 at 12:42 PM said...

I saw those ads, and thought it was sort of bullshit. I haven't really had time at a computer to keep up with people posting about it.

You'd think the bags would essentially sell themselves by this point. I pretty sure Burro did a lot to get the word out at first - sell them at local and not-so-local shops, eventually have something to do with redbull, right? extreme mountain dew type dudes!!

Maybe we should have just seen this coming.

So.. people know about the bags. Are sales declining? Are these ads necessary - I mean, it doesn't matter if its "innovation" or "art" - what's the point? Even Tom had to draw the line with it knowing who sees this blog. The internet is full of everything - but "DAMN we're so extreme our dawg Tom can't hang with it even."

Oh, other people advertise in shitty ways so you should? I guess some people here had a mutual understanding of a community trying to do something different and unique. You want to be just like everything else join the fucking Navy.

"cool bags tho" - you know, are they cool? Have this shit changed your image of them? For better or worse? If not - why, even buy one then? The mall has bags, they don't cost as much. Why isn't Burro just selling bags at the mall? They have the similar advertisements as those companies.

People exploit themselves on a daily basis for the purpose of monetary gain, if a women chooses to do voluntarily show her body for such a purpose then she is exercising free will and should not be judged because of this. Children however should not be exposed to the picture in question because its probaly not age apporiate for them. If an adult is personally offened then they need to get off their moral high horse and start thinking of a little more progressive about gender and nudity.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, come on, grow up.
Identity has nothing to do with this. The purpose was Burro doing something different, with humor to it if you will because it's not like they're high fashion followers themselves.
Theres no face, NO IDENTITY, just a beautiful female figure with some tight ass bags.

troof:

burro gets called out for being capitalist wankers seeking to profit from exploitation, the same way all the other mainstream capitalist wankers operate.

insecure burro defenders cry instead of admitting that something they did could be wrong.

no one gets it right every time. especially when they are trying so hard to be edgy and cool. the wise and open minded thing to do is learn from mistakes, say sorry, and try again.

j.o.b.: i'll listen to what you have to say about jobs when you can support yourself.

Rather then debating the issue at hand you've resorted to personal attacks to validate you're arguement or lack thereof, instead of making a concrete point grade you've choosen to use grade school language to get something across. No wonder jacksonille is regarded as a cultural inept enviorment when mild nudity causes an upraor on a website which represnets 'the scene'. And for the record, I don't own a fix gear or have any burro affliation. Burro made an advertisement for their products, the advertisement included mild nudity. Oh, the horror! You guys don't need to apologize for anything, rather people should acknowledge this is the year 2009 and not 1950.

The thing with no identity.. is that ten becomes all women. Show this to your mother, daughter, sister, wife, girlfriend.

Have a real conversation with her. How does this make her feel? Does this image represent her? How does she feel abut a female body being exploited to sell a local product?

Does this image respect women? does the flyer on whacksonville.com.. does that respect women?

Do we want to be a community that values women? Their bodies? Their opinions?

Or.. do we want to be a community that when we get criticism, we retaliate by making another tasteless flyer?

Anonymous posts are weak shit. If you want to whine about your stupid ideas and have no one know who you are just cry into your pillow.

Hello World,

The After the Bomb, Baby! flier is all of the following:

a) Mad tighter than the Burro ad.
b) Neither sexist nor sexy.
c) An exciting piece of visual art.

I'm open to discussing this, in person, any time, with anyone.
