The event will mark Suleman's second-ever DVD signing, with the first coming July 17 at a Castle Megastore in Phoenix, Ariz. According to Castle Megastore Brand Marketing Specialist Cydney Wines, Suleman's Arizona appearance was a big success, drawing roughly 200 people and selling "a ton of DVDs." But Tacoma's rendezvous with Octomom could be even bigger.
"Tacoma was chosen because when we've done signings in the past with different adult stars there, Tacoma has always gotten a great crowd - always," says Wines. "So it's just one of those things where it just made sense. Tacoma always shows Castle a lot of love. They always come out. They support the stars and the industry. So for something like this, we just thought Tacoma would be a great place, especially being so close to Seattle."
Not surprisingly, the post stirred some feedback. And while I certainly expected some to question a story about a broke mother of 14 cashing in on her fleeting fame by getting into the masturbatory porn business, I didn't expect to be accused of taking a cheap shot at my beloved T-Town.
But as commenter jr001 writes:
And the pornographic advertising throughout the pages of THE WEEKLY... That's OK? Seattle, where local community NUDE bicycling events are the norm. ...That wasn't a community spokesperson speaking on behalf of the people of Tacoma, the person runs a porn shop -- of which Seattle has it's fair share.
The slant of this article is obvious. You should go sit beneath the statue of Lenin in Fremont and re-think your future blogging objectives.
