This weekend – as you know – I was in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for a whole big DVD wholesaler/retailer schmooze fest. On the business end, I think it was kind of exciting. I remember going to these things in my early days and everyone was incredibly weirded out by my movies. Retailers and wholesalers were so confused about everything about them – from the girls who were “not porn stars“, to the odd scenarios that led to sex…and most importantly…they really were just turned off by the fact that they didn’t belong in any category. Are they interracial pornos? Are they anal pornos? Are they “couples” pornos? Are they amateur porn? My movies have little elements of everything, but aren’t really anything at the same time. When I started making movies, I had no idea that these were unspoken rules you’re supposed to follow if you want to have a successful porn company. It’s a blessing and a curse at the same time that I just had no idea!
However, the people who own stores all seem to be excited about BurningAngel movies. They still really don’t get it, but they’re happy to stock it because people seem to dig it! So thank YOU everyone for helping a whole bunch of close-minded people open their minds…and helping me build my brand so I can keep making movies that defy every porno law.
I had to hang out in the big warehouse where just about every porn product ever was stocked. I found a new product that I found incredibly disturbing… and a biological nightmare. I think in the name of science I might actually protest this product!!! THIS IS NOT HOW YOU TITTY FUCK!!!
Here I am with Raylene – my Jewish milf porno friend, and a newer star, Chanel Preston. We were just about to go on a booze cruise.
And here I am on the booze cruise. TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT ME; I’M ON A MOTHER FUCKIN’ BOAT!
Well today I’m on set. Pictures from set will come tomorrow!
Yesterday, I basically spent my whole day on a plane. I got on a flight at 1PM PST and landed in Florida at about midnight EST. So that was my whole day. I drank airplane wine and ate airport tacos. I’m in Ft. Lauderdale for a big porn convention where all the big buyers and wholesalers and distributors of adult DVDs congregate and drink and schmooze. Yes. Even in porn – there is schmoozing. So hopefully if I schmooze well enough, they will buy some more DVDs. Here’s a pic of me…in FLORIDA!
I watched “Inside Job” on the plane. I thought it was going to be a lot better than it was. There was a whole lot of confusing economic mumbo jumbo that I didn’t understand so well…but in addition to that, what I found most frustrating was that any time they talked about someone really important and really corrupt, it would flash to a black screen that said “so-and-so refused to be interviewed for this film”. The first time it was effective. I was like “Whoa! that person is a douchebag! I can’t believe they declined to be interviewed!!” But after seeing that like 20 times all I could think was… “Yo, dudes…maybe you should have waited to make this movie til you could interview all the people who actually know about this shit.” I just wasn’t that impressed. Quite honestly, I thought the movie was going to be filled with a bunch of secret footage of rich Wall Street guys doing blow and banging prostitutes. There was some mention of that stuff, but it was all voice-overs with stock footage of a random hand snorting cocaine out of a random dollar bill. BORING!
The whole thing really felt like a Michael Moore movie. Really one-sided with a lot of missing information. If you’re into that kinda stuff, you might like the movie.
Well right now, I’m in Ft. Lauderdale Florida, catching up on some work and drinking a Bloody Mary. Since I’m already on the subject of wealthy douchebags kind of, I feel like I should mention that I’m sitting at a bar at the pool with my laptop – and I’m listening to two men talk about how annoying their pregnant wives are, asking each other where to get cocaine, and how pissed off they are that they are here with their families when there is a “porn convention” going on. They stopped their convo a few times to ask me if my tattoos hurt.
Not to get all feminist on you, but this is really making me hate men right now. I think I’ll get another Bloody Mary. Or maybe 12.
Last night was my friend Peter Warren‘s birthday party. Peter is an editor at the lovely adult trade publication AVN. We have become good friends over the years… he’s a great dude and I’m happy to have him in my life.
For his birthday, me and a bunch of people went to the oh-so famous suburban food chain Bennie Hanna – one of those places where Asians are kind of exploited, and they throw knives in the air and cook your food on the table and, like, throw it in your mouth and stuff. I realized at some point during the dinner that not only were we a table full of porn stars, but we were a table full of porn stars WHO TAKE IT IN OUR BUTT!
A big table full of hot chicks who fuck on camera is one thing…I mean that is cool and all…but it’s a whole different level of coolness to have a whole table full of hoes who take it in the ass. Go us!
Well here is a pic from dinner – I’m not in the photo because I had to take the photo. It’s cool. You see enough pictures of me.
In the name of celebrating butt sex, and butts, and uh… St.Patrick’s day – here is a photo I took of myself when I got home. I was originally going to use it to flirt with someone (the kids these days call it “sexting” right? ) but instead, I’m giving it to you. Flirting with people who read my blog is way better than flirting with anyone else.
So today, I think I am going to get a little serious for a minute and talk about the situation in Japan.
You see, last week when it happened, my good friend Jenna Haze was in Hawaii….Last Friday, I woke up around 5 in the morning to a bunch of scary text messages from her saying she was getting evacuated from her hotel and was scared she was gonna die. I read the news and was petrified.
Fortunately she is OK – however a lot of people in Japan are not ok! And they need your help. So instead of rambling on about my boring day, I’m just going to put a link to the American Red Cross (for every dollar donated, 91-cents are given to the cause) and tell you to donate some money and help the people in Japan. I know this wasn’t my sexiest blog to date, BUT it is definitely an important one!
I’ll leave you with a pic of me and Jenna Haze…and our sentiments about this whole mess…just so the entire blog isn’t too depressing!
I literally got up at like 7:30 AM yesterday…and sat at my computer writing a script till midnight…by then, I had fallen asleep at my computer. Haha.
By the end of the day, my desk had coffee, wine, remnants of an egg I ate for breakfast and some frozen ravioli I ate for dinner on it.
All I have to say is: Those of you who fast-forward through the plot of my movies should really look at these pictures and maybe think twice about it.
I actually had fun. I do love writing. We are shooting this movie next week; I work way better under serious deadlines that I already missed! Oh what a glamorous life!
Here is what I looked like after 12 hours of writing.
The payoff for all this hard work is that I will totally get to have sex!
