The January 2000 edition of SCORE went on-line at SCORELAND on December 17, 1999 with pictorials of Brittany Love (covergirl and first photo set), debutante Daizie Kellogg, exotic dancers Amber Waves and Chrissy Lynn Peaks, super-sized B.B. Gunns from Philadelphia, porn star Carolyn Monroe, curvy newcomer Cindy Cupps and bra-destroyer Kayla Kleevage courageously tackling the organ of Ron “The Hedgehog” Jeremy. (The photos were black-dotted in the newsstand magazine. Uncensored hardcore officially started in April ’00.)
January ’00 marked the beginning of SCORE‘s longtime association with Brittany and Cindy. They’ve both made many videos at our studio since. The 1999 SCORE Newcomer of the Year Contest was announced with 35 girls entered. The winner was announced in the May ’00 issue. Does anyone remember who won?
Other sections included Reader Art by Jerry Haines from South Carolina and feature dancer Alyssa Alps was all over the USA in her “On The Road” column. The SCORE Model Directory listed the mailing addresses of the more accessible models. Email and the Net have made this list of post office boxes more or less obsolete.
If you’re a print magazine collector, here’s some publishing trivia. January ’00 was the last of the “perfect bound” issues, meaning the cover is glued to the pages and has a flat spine. Beginning with the February ’00 edition (a massive 164 page issue), SCORE would now be stapled through the centerfold, or “saddle-stitched” as book-binders call the process. The next step in computronic format began with January ’03 SCORE when the exact copy of the newsstand magazine itself went on-line through Virtual-Newsstand.com. We were one of the first men’s mag publishers to try it, and it’s updated every issue. Check it out if you’ve never seen how an actual magazine looks on your monitor. Very cool.
