Flesh peddler of the future: Mr. Skin
Also known as Jim McBride, this Chicago-based former futures trader parlayed his hobby of compiling famous nude scenes on VHS tapes into a successful internet venture. Despite the studios screaming bloody murder about the piracy of their product online, they've been startlingly tolerant of Mr. Skin's exhaustive database of video and photos highlighting "the goods" from their movies. By embracing new technologies, Mr. Skin has eliminated the need to waste hours of precious time scanning horrible "Skinemax" comedies and thrillers for hints of nudity. He distills it into a no-nonsense quick hit -- be it Angelina Jolie or Kathy Bates.
