    Hugh Hefner is my BFF

    https://savehollywoodland.org/

    LOS ANGELES - The Trust for Public Land (TPL) today announced it has raised enough money to buy and protect the 138 acres behind the world-famous Hollywood Sign, as Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner stepped forward to close the gap with a $900,000 donation toward the $12.5 million needed.

    Who did Hef borrow 900,000 from?

    Word on the street is that Playboy is bleeding losses every quarter and the old guy wants to live it up will he can still (with ******) get it up...

    pretty sure his wealth no longer depends on the profitability of playboy.

    My guess is that it came from his personal wealth.

    But yeah, Playboy itself as an ongoing enterprise is in trouble, I've heard talk of that.

    Have also heard that the douche who owns Girls Gone Wild (Joe something) has offered to take Playboy off of Hefner's hands for a large sum.

    Seems like Hef's just being Hef. Maybe it's unseemly 'cuz he's so old?

    Even then I'm like, "more power to ya, Grandpa".

    The playboy name and associated trademarks are where the money is, not the magazine anymore. Way to go Hef for stepping up!

    Maybe he'll change the sign to read "Hefnerwood".

    It's become rather stale: the suave playboy of a couple of decades ago, to me, has turned into an old man, unable to let go of the image of his younger self. I really wonder if he's happy.

    Really? He owns roughly 70% of Playboy a company once valued at nearly a billion and is now a tidy sum of 84 million. His stock has been threatened with de-listing on the exchange and some insiders are saying he is just trying to hang on.

    Don't get me wrong I love Hef...but after years as a subscriber I felt the magazine quality was really getting shaky these past few years. With free pron everywhere...what exactly is his brand?

    of course! But if I'm not around, hit up Sogno & DrRoebaix. They won't stop aksing me when we're going back up.

    Magazines like Maxim and FHM and phenomenon like Girls Gone Wild have really undercut Playboy in recent years.

    Playboy was really about busting free from the sexual repression/hypocrisy of the '50s, and instead, celebrating sexuality, and well, hedonism.

    Thing is, by the '80s, that battle was pretty much won. And by the '90s, Playboy really wasn't controversial at all anymore, 'cept maybe in the hardcore Bible belt.

    Playboy continued to do well for quite awhile on inertia, but the Internet age and new competitors on the magazine rack have not been good to them.

    They really need to re-define themselves.


    / I'd also say that the centerfolds they pick are not as good as they used to be too, and I'm not sure why.
