Another entry in the CyberCutie lineup demonstrates why we love, well, the CyberCutie lineup.

Keep on Truckin’ Alina

Height: 5’9″
Measurements: 34B-23-33
Native Country: Columbia
Age: 24

Columbian cutie Alina is a natural when it comes to performing for the camera — and the lens loves her back! The hazel-eyed camgirl says she loves her job because it allows her to express her creative side and show off her talents as an actress, dancer and model. But the B-cup blonde admits she sometimes likes to sip a drink to help her relax before baring all and spills, “Before shooting this set, we drank a little rum.”

Alina says she’s excited to be in Penthouse because of the magazine’s history of celebrating women’s sensuality, and we’re thrilled to count her as one of our magnificent models. There’s no doubt this driven performer will fuel countless fantasies and race to the top of the heap.

What are some of your turn-ons and turn-offs?

Good dirty talk and wet kisses get me hot. I’m turned off if a guy is boring or smells bad. I like men who have something interesting to say.

What’s your favorite kind of date?

The place isn’t as important as the person. He needs to be someone with a good vibe, so we can connect. He also needs to act like a gentleman and be able to make me laugh. If my date can do those things, the rest of the night will be perfect and everything else will fall into place.

Do you usually wear panties, or do you go without?

I always have to wear panties. I don’t feel comfortable without them. My favorites are thongs. But I’m definitely a member of the “No Bra Club!”

Name something that’s on your bucket list.

I’d love to go skydiving in Dubai!

Do you think skydiving in Dubai would be different from skydiving somewhere else? How much can you really concentrate on the view when you’re completely focused on yelling, “AAAAAAH! This is the stupidest thing I ever DIIIIIIID!” all the way to the ground? Maybe they have excellent hospitals in Dubai? … At any rate, you can try to catch up with Alina on Twitter or Instagram, so maybe you can ask her. Having looked at at least hundreds, and perhaps thousands of airplane windows over the years, not a single person in this room claims to have thought, “Yep. I could jump from here.”

Speaking of falling into the deep end, remember Michael Jackson?

‘Cause This is Thriller — at 40

Michael Jackson Thriller Dance

When Michael Jackson released “The Girl Is Mine,” the cute, smooth — almost cloying — duet with Paul McCartney in April 1982, it hardly signaled what was to come from the rest of his sixth album. At that time — with the record still yet to be named Thriller — it would have been logical to expect more post-disco, R&B-laced pop in the vein of Jackson’s Off the Wall. He was again working with producer Quincy Jones, who had helped establish Jackson as a solo artist three years earlier, when the former child star was just 21.

But things were changing for Jackson in ways people could not even begin to imagine.

“They’re out to get you, better leave while you can. Don’t wanna be a boy, you wanna be a man.”

“And be careful what you do, ’cause the lie becomes the truth.”

Forgetting the narrative of its obviously sinister title track, even the catchy dance-pop anthems “Beat It” and “Billie Jean” had harrowing and dark lyrics, seemingly mirroring the sadness young Jackson was already beginning to feel.

Nevertheless, when Thriller was released — with an overly polished, softly focused, but fairly normal, great-looking young Black man in a white suit on the cover — the world expected more of the same sort of music from the eighth Jackson sibling, if slightly better. Michael Jackson was 24 at the time.

What they got was the genesis of the King of Pop. The greatest-selling album the world has ever seen. It’s said that Jackson wanted to create an album with no filler tracks: Thriller had seven Billboard Top 10 singles — the first album to accomplish the feat — including two No. 1 songs, the above mentioned pop classics.

“Human Nature” and “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)” had echoes of Off The Wall, while “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’” hinted at Bad, which would follow in 1987.

“Thriller,” the song, went beyond being just a single. The 13-minute video with Vincent Price’s chilling Edgar Allan Poe-esque monologue, and incredible makeup and choreography for the time, was a huge global event. In a pre-social media world, people sat round their TV in 1983 for the grand unveiling. 

In fact, it’s hard to separate Thriller, the album, from “Thriller,” the visual and audio experience. “Beat It” and “Billie Jean,” in particular, broke the dominance of white artists on MTV, and propelled the little known cable channel into the mainstream. Jackson also debuted his seminal moonwalk dance while performing “Billie Jean” during a televised performance celebrating Motown’s 25th anniversary.

But as an album, Thriller has sold nearly 70 million copies globally, 20 million more than its nearest rival — AC/DC’s Back in Black. Thriller stayed at No. 1 in the U.S. for 37 weeks, was the best-selling album in America for both 1983 and 1984, and won a record eight Grammys in 1984.

It is the greatest pop album of all time. Although pop alone fails to encompass the musical genres it touches.

Five years later, when Jackson released Bad — another Quincy collaboration that spawned five No. 1 hits — he was personally in decline. He had already had his fourth nose surgery, his skin was becoming paler and his sunglasses were a permanent fixture.

Within a few years, his health would wane further and his eccentric behavior would escalate. The first of many child sex abuse claims against him would also surface, charges he denied. Only 25 years after the release of Thriller, the drug-dependent recluse would be dead after suffering cardiac arrest.

Today Jackson’s legacy is slightly tainted, but Thriller stands the test of time.

“You’re fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller.”

OK. So the magazine likes us to include as many of their articles as we can, and we do try to oblige for any number of reasons, not the least of which being that beautiful women never show up around here looking for the geeks in Digital, so we need to stay friendly with Publishing if at all possible. That said, what may at first glance appear to be an odd juxtaposition here has an explanation. You see, it was the “40 years ago” part that caught our attention after having read that Alina has only been on the planet for 24 years. This means that “Thriller” came out somewhere around a decade and a half before Alina’s parents even thought about having the sex which resulted in her. That’s weird to think about, right?

Come to think of it, there may be reasons people do not often wander into our area. … A slight possibility exists that we might be strange.
