Flaccid Sunday, we used to call him back in my days as a voice major.  A group of us met him once. He was such a damn prick.

If you ever listen to The Three Tenors album, you'll understand just how great a voice Pleasant Sunday has...and also why he'll never hold a candle to Pavoratti's voice.

On the tape, the man describes details of his plans to leave a dinner separately from his agents and other representatives, to elude their notice, so that he could meet her. Another excerpt includes "Mendy" calling the alleged leader of the crime ring, Juan Percowicz, to celebrate that she has confirmed plans with the man, whom she refers to as "Plácido."

Yeah, real reign of terror here. Seems the real reign of terror is by the governments that treat sex as a crime and drive sex work underground into the domain of organized crime. He was just a john looking to get laid, yet the article goes through pains to make him some ringleader

The sooner society rejects Puritanism in all its forms and accepts sex as a normal, natural thing that is part of normal life, the better IMO

The article is a bit thin on details, but I'm assuming he was more of a user than a ringleader:

In one excerpt from the wiretap recordings from Argentina, a man whom prosecutors say is Domingo is heard talking to "Mendy," a woman with whom he is allegedly making plans for a sexual encounter. On the tape, the man describes details of his plans to leave a dinner separately from his agents and other representatives, to elude their notice, so that he could meet her. Another excerpt includes "Mendy" calling the alleged leader of the crime ring, Juan Percowicz, to celebrate that she has confirmed plans with the man, whom she refers to as "Plácido."

I actually thought he had disappeared after the multiple harassment claims made against him. Didn't know he was still performing on three continents. And Rolex? WTF?

You seem to have missed the part about __trafficking__, as well as there being minors involved. This is not about people who consent, and it is not about adults.

Betting he'll also say something about capitalism, free enterprise, and "age is just a number". That type always does.

I'm kinda torn - on one hand the guy's a real berk, and this kind of shiat wouldn't surprise me.  On the other hand, per what info we do have we got the guy making plans with a group that's done trafficking, but no connection between the two things is made that I can see there other than he was planning something illicit with them.  I'd be very curious to know two things: A.  What were these plans?  What sort of illegality did they involve?  B.  Was the guy cognizant of what the gang got up to, did he know about the trafficking or did he figure he had a black market side chick that put out and hooked him up with good deals on smuggled cigars or something?  Probably damn well knew better, but the way the article's worded there are a lot of things standing next to one another, and not a lot of connections between them beyond, "She farked him and they made illegal plans for... something?"  I'd suspect it'll become clearer soon enough - that's a pretty preliminary sounding "more to come" kinda article

/no outcome I envision ends with him being innocent mind you
//just not sure exactly what he's been up to
///if it's being a useful idiot and buying smuggled goods or something?  Ok not good but not warm up the chair either
////if it's trafficking, and/or being well aware of the trafficking and working with them on that kind of shiat?  How's old Sparky doing?

He's never been a true tenor. I think he's actually been performing as a baritone for some time now.

As people have said here, he's always had a reputation as an asshole going beyond the usual primadonna behavior. Being involved n truly shady shiat isn't particularly surprising.

Yes! Because every john knows all the doings of the pimps! They hold board meetings that high profile clients are invited to attend

FFS guy, have you ever even attempted to understand how the world and how people work?

I get it, willful ignorance is just some peoples bag, but it's good to at least try to understand the going's on around you while you're here
 
2022-08-18 6:01:36 AM  
It won't be easy, you'll think it strange
When I try to explain how I feel
That I still need your love after all that I've done
You won't believe me, all you will see is a girl you once knew
Although she's dressed up to the nines
At sixes and sevens with you
I had to let it happen, I had to change
Couldn't stay all my life down at heel

So you're willing to excuse a john's willful ignorance of how a pimp secures the sex worker he engages with...

... and if you dare not excuse him for that, why, your own willful ignorance is absolutely beyond the pale?

Because 'human nature'.

Do I have this correct?

Eh....

If he was just using the services of prostitutes I have no problem with that, but he has a LOT of sexual misconduct complaints too.  Don't farking sexually harass people, it isn't that hard.  I certainly ain't crying for the dude.
