This spread came eight years and couple dozen drug arrests too late. :-(

Why pay for something you can see online for free?

everyone downloaded it before it hit the shelves and noticed all the makeup she was wearing

IIRC there was no frontal right?
And the good have been ridden hard and put away wet.
Poor Lindsey this will push her right over the edge.

You can't swing a dead cat on the internet without hitting at least two sites that had the pics up for free.

Nope, no full frontal.
Usual Playboy heavy makeup and airbrushing crap that's already chomping into their profitability that they can't seem to comprehend.
The whole Marilyn Monroe angle was stupid, the photo shoot was faux-retro and pretentious, and not particularly good in the first place.

In the end, it was a blatantly transparent publicity stunt by both Playboy and Lohan. No point in paying for a subpar product you can get for free.
 
2011-12-18 03:53:19 AM  
I'll just add that I found the pics online for free incidentally on another news filter site I frequent, and I still feel screwed because it put me out the opportunity cost of finding better softcore material, or god forbid actual porn.
 
2011-12-18 04:03:32 AM  
Because when I think of porn, I think Playboy.

It was a good run, but Playboy just needs to pack it in already for Christ's sake.

The average kid has probably seen every subgenre of porn before the age of 14 now thanks to the Internet. Nudie pictures are "meh" at best, and embarrassing at worst because everyone has been so thoroughly jaded by the free depravity available.

Honestly, if she was hotter and the pictures were hot, it would sell. As is, they just weren't either sexy nor that appealing. It was nice of them to float them ahead of time to warn us not to buy the crap. And let's be honest here, it's not selling because it's crap; not because it can be seen for free.

Hmm....actually quite appropriate.
 
2011-12-18 04:29:28 AM  
I went to one of the leaked pic sites. Most boring nude pics EVAR.
 
2011-12-18 04:36:02 AM  
I don't get really get the appeal this woman, impending car wreck side show apart, she's average and a little hard looking...the art director for this shoot was probably stuck between a rock and a hard place with this one, I'm sure Lohan's parasites made demands in terms of what they wanted and look how it ended up? Sad setup with a wide of the mark reverence to Marilyn...sorry Lindsay, you're no Marilyn. This girl needs to get out of this industry for her own safety or she needs to get new advisors *shrugs*

I don't think this shoot failed solely because Lindsey is not as attractive as she used to be. These sorts of spreads can be broken down into two categories: the goods and how they are displayed. This particular shoot had bigger problems with column b than a IMO. That's not to say that A is all bad, by no means do I mean that. Let's just say that a) isn't doing anyone favors and b) is particularly important.

If this had been blocked and shot differently I'll bet they could have made a super hot set that would even give chicks boners. In a similar way, this set would have been Ok (not wonderful though) with the world's hottest chick. It just wasn't well planned and thought out.

THESE were the BEST photos they got out of the shoot?
How bad were the rest???

The online archive has more appeal just from a nostalgic value than that pointless shoot did.

It's just sad really. Most people are just coming into their own at 25. She's used up and whoring out to feed 'a glory of the past' fantasy of an 80+ year old pornogropher.

The shots were all bad. The scene/plan/shoot was ill-conceived. It's like, it doesn't matter how many people show up, and how nice my (and everybody else's) bikes are, and how great the trophies are for a bike race if the course sucks. Everything else even done to the pinnacle of awesome can't redeem the crit is the course blows. If they had done a, iono, surfing theme, or a beach theme, or something girl-next-doorsy and made her look healthy and beautiful it would have also had the effect up jacking-up the sexiness, hotness and value of the shoot.
The real question is if the shoot's theme, costumes etc were Hef's or Lohan's ideas.
 
2011-12-18 05:09:11 AM  
I don't think you guys get it.

It's an investment. I give her a couple of more years, at most.
 
2011-12-18 05:10:00 AM  
I do have to say, though, that I am impressed with Playboy's ability to shut down any and all sites with the pics posted. I've tried to see them, out of morbid curiosity to see how badly they photoshopped her (guys, freckles are the point, and the only thing that made Lohan different). But each and every site that the Google gods bestow upon my browser claims to have been contacted by lawyers and had to take it down.

I have seen countless numbers of celebs try to shut down leaked nudes off their cellphones, and of course fail. Countless companies try to shut down leaked documents or incriminating pics, and of course fail. The internet always found a way. And I'm sure eventually, it will here too. But for now, they be essentially shut down the geek network of free information.

But then, maybe its that the pics aren't good enough for them to care that much about the fight. I guess I'll see for myself some day.

It also doesn't help that Lohan looks bored in most of the shots. Trolling Google to see the shots yielded quite a few side-by-side comparisons of Lohan's pics to the Monroe originals, and the biggest thing I noticed was that, while Monroe looked engaged and playful in her shots, Lohan looked bored out of her skull.

Lindsay, honey, if you really do want to restart your career, you gotta stop obviously phoning it in whenever you do anything that doesn't involve booze or blow.

Dumpster outside the firestation. We would hop up the side and peek in when we rode our bikes past it going to the store. Now and then there would be an issue or two sitting within easy reach.

Also my step father had a subscription, so Id sneak a peek at those.

Thing is, this is the second shoot that Hefner ordered and conceived after the first one turned out terrible. Just how bad was the first one if this was the publishable one?!

Let me tell you how it is son. You get a woman and she doesn't want that shiat in the house. Now in those days a man's porn collection meant something, he can't just chuck it out. So like the aging family dog he takes it for a walk in the woods and returns alone.
 
2011-12-18 07:35:38 AM  
Lohan should have insisted Playboy go with the shots Hef thought weren't "tasteful". Actually, she should have gone with Penthouse or Hustler or Cheri in the first place... Or Club International. Yes. Club International. That would have sold nicely.

Eh - people can say whatever they like but I am 100% convinced Playboy lost a small fortune because of the leaked photos.

I know a lot of people who wanted to see the pictures; myself included. Mostly out of curiosity. I would have paid a few bucks to see her and then go, 'lol - what happened to her?'.

But they were pirated and put online. So myself and countless others decided to check them out first and decided not to buy the magazine. And because of the pirated pics, Playboy had to push up the release date meaning less time to hype it up.

Piracy *does* mean lost income. I know, I know, this is the internet and nobody wants to hear it.....
 
2011-12-18 07:54:30 AM  
The people who still buy playboy have never heard of lohan. The target audience for this shoot has never heard of marylin monroe, or hugh hefner.
 
2011-12-18 08:20:41 AM  
I've seen people talk about how great her boobs are. Really?
Not trying to sound like Chester but they were so much more awesome
when she was 18.

Obviously, right? But they changed. Not just less perky or what, her nipples and areola changed. She went from puffy & pink to "I'm 41 and got 3 kids, you got $20 I borrow?" in only a few years.

They're still big and soft though, wouldn't turn them down.
 
2011-12-18 08:28:28 AM  
They got the shoot all wrong. They didn't capture her character. She isn't glamorous. The woman in the photos was completely unrecognizable as Lohan. This could have been hot, but they screwed it up. It should have been taken with low lighting in a seedy motel room, with cigarettes on the carpet and a tipped over wine glass. Think the video for Fiona Apple's Criminal.

Not surprising people aren't buying it considering Playboy isn't even sending it to it's subscribers. I have received every issue for almost 2 years now but have yet to get this one, and it is now well past the usual time of the month when the most recent issue arrives.

Mine were in a shed on our property...said shed had a metric shiat-ton (No, seriously.) of crap I had to climb over to get to it. Upside, though, is that I got to see Denise Crosby's tits.
